Our prefabricated Bolt-On approach leverages revolutionary changes in construction design and manufacturing technology that when coupled with years of practical application. Saves Construction Time, Unleashes Design Flexibility while boosting Real-estate values. Awnex’s Bolt-On Architectural Element approach provides considerable rewards in three primary categories all having their respective and combined positive financial impact:

Time Savings

Time Savings— Industry experts report Pre-fabricated elements reduce construction time by 10-18%, the result of pre-construction design planning, less on-site trade coordination, and products arriving ready for installation. This equates to 10-20 days with the typical restaurant new construction schedule. While empirical data is not available, it is in Awnex’s experience that remodel time savings are greater due the ability to use the infrastructure from the original installation. In typical situations further time is saved through reduced scheduling conflicts due to fewer trades involvement, design time, and preparations for operation Turn-Over and close-out. Prefabricated components typically have less punch-out issues. Other TIME SAVING contributing factors having a measureable positive impact include:

  • Off- Site Construction—product fabrication taking place off-site in parallel with building construction eliminating typical on-site assembly or construction time.
  • Reduce Trade Coordination—Installation only!
  • Permitting—pre-arranged, limited or no inspections required
  • Completed Product Delivery—eliminated delays associated with interdependent material deliveries

In the typical retail facility construction market, 10-20 days saved in construction equates to $50,000 to $75,000 in new-found revenue, hence Awnex’s Bolt-On strategy referred to as Speed-To-Revenue.

Optimal Real Estate Investment

All businesses want to make smart real estate investments in terms of future value. With 15 to 30 Year Depreciation schedules, Landlords need their investments to have a long life. Franchisees want their buildings to be equally strong in location and recognition– a brand moniker–something easily recognized by the public but yet flexible enough to be updated. No one wants their building to be reminiscent of the previous design or proprietor. Awnex’s Bolt-On methodology satisfies the desire and need of both concerns while being more cost effective. The building achieves its signature identification thru Bolt-On Architectural Elements depreciated as Equipment over 5 years. In contrast, built-in designs constructed on site are typically characterized has having a permanent identity and are stuck with 15 to 30-year depreciation schedule. As a result, the need to re-image or remodel is certain to be required well before full depreciation is achieved. As the depreciation chart indicates, Awnex’s Bolt-On solutions is considerably more financially attractive from construction, design and investment perspectives while addressing the needs of the Franchisee and Landlord completely.
