VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Luxor Industrial Corporation (TSX:V:LRL) (OTC:LXRRF) a leading manufacturer and distributor of engineered commercial and residential wood building products, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary USA Mill Frame LLC was awarded 2 additional turnkey framing contracts from Seattle based Venture General Contracting LLC. The approximate US $5,700,000 worth of contracts with installation commencing in the second half of 2016 follows 2 initial contracts of approximately US $2,400,000 awarded earlier this year by Venture. The Plateau 120 Apartments are located in Sammamish, WA while the Alexan Marymoor project is located in Redmond, WA.
US turnkey framing contracts for 6 projects now total approximately US $17 million. Luxor has commenced installation and pre-fabrication of products for the 4 contracts exceeding US $11 million secured earlier this year, with all jobs being on budget.
In addition to supplying skilled labor, Luxor will manufacture pre-fabricated walls and pre-cut and packaged engineered floor systems in its Chilliwack, BC factory for the US framing contracts. The ability of Luxor to pre-fabricate framing products off site provides a distinct advantage for a builder as highlighted in an SBC Magazine article titled “10 Construction Trends Include Offsite Componentization.” According to the experts the first two out of the top 10 trends to watch in 2016 are:
“1. Skilled labor shortage will continue to plague construction companies. …The labor crisis is not a new issue, and most experts predict it will continue well into 2016 and beyond, as the talent deficit will require multiple years to fill up again…
2. Prefab/offsite construction methods will become more popular. …Offsite — also known as modular or prefabricated — construction has been gaining ground as an alternative building method that offers the benefits of reduced construction time, less waste and possible cost savings…”
