CertainTeed, a leading North American manufacturer of sustainable building materials, announced today that its ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES™ (OPA) offsite construction system has been awarded the Offsite Construction Award for Innovative Product or Service from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Launched in March 2023, ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES offers fully-constructed wall, floor, ceiling and roof panels to help builders complete more homes faster with less risk on the jobsite. Specifically, OPA was awarded the Offsite Construction Award for Innovative Product or Service, which recognizes leading-edge offerings from suppliers of the offsite construction industry, with special consideration for systems-built housing.
“The launch of OPA this spring marked a pivotal expansion of CertainTeed’s building solution offerings and reinforced our team’s commitment to make the world a better home,” said Dennis Michaud, Director CertainTeed Platforms and Managing Director of CertainTeed Offsite Solutions. “We’re proud to receive this recognition from the NAHB, which speaks to the quality and innovation behind our OPA system.”
The NAHB is one of the largest trade associations in the United States, representing more than 140,000 home builders, developers, contractors and associated businesses including building material manufacturers and suppliers. The NAHB works to ensure that housing is a national priority and provides key educational opportunities for members, including the annual International Builders’ Show and the Building Systems Housing Summit, which is dedicated to offsite construction.
