On July 21st, 2019, Inphastos assembled a fully-framed three story, 2,600 sq. ft. new home in one day. Beginning from a bare foundation, the Inphastos crew installed its factory-built components and secured the roof by the end of the day at a residential jobsite in Ada, Michigan.
Inphastos is a construction technology company that is developing a highly automated, scalable offsite platform to design, manufacture, and install high quality wood-framed infrastructure. Inphastos’ technology platform combines estimating algorithms, 3D design modeling, digitally-driven offsite manufacturing, and onsite assembly of components in an integrated system that results in completion of the building envelope structure in days instead of several weeks. The Inphastos platform provides Developers and Builders unprecedented levels of efficiency, enabling them to deliver sorely-needed residential and mid-rise housing units much faster than traditional methods.
“This is a strategic milestone accomplishment for Inphastos and a vivid illustration of the remarkable efficiencies we enable by digitizing and re-engineering the entire end-end process,” said Paul Bandrowski, CEO and Founder of Inphastos. “The astounding speed you witness on the jobsite is made possible by the turnkey technology platform we are building.”
In addition to unparalleled speed and precision, the 1-day build also highlighted the increased jobsite safety made possible by Inphastos. While the install crew was assembling the floor cassettes, walls, and stairs that were delivered from its offsite production facility, a separate crew was building the roof cassette onsite on the ground. This method eliminates dangerous falling hazards associated with standard roof building practice. When complete, the Inphastos roof assembly was lifted into place by a mechanical crane in only minutes.

The Inphastos platform is a comprehensive solution to the longstanding, systemic inefficiencies restraining the fabrication of low to mid-rise buildings in North America. Traditional construction in the US is executed using a process that hasn’t fundamentally changed since the 1800’s. During that same period, every other major industrial sector has successfully innovated and reinvented itself, some more than once.
Inphastos is transforming the construction process by reducing build time, optimizing job site personnel, and providing a previously unattainable level of predictability to the entire process. In conjunction with proprietary software tools and computer-controlled hardware, Inphastos is leveraging the same types of cutting-edge technologies used by automotive and aerospace manufacturers to launch the construction industry into the next century. This drastically increased certainty of results enables unparalleled productivity that ultimately benefits the developer, builder, and owner by providing higher quality building at more affordable costs.
