Panelized Wood Wall Panels These costs will apply on jobs with 20,000 to 30,000 SF of wall panels. Panel material costs are for prefabricated panels purchased from a modular plant located within 50 miles of the job site. Costs will be higher on smaller jobs and on jobs with poor access. Costs assume wall panels are fabricated according to job plans and specifications, delivered piece-marked, ready to install and finish. Labor costs for installation of panels are listed at the end of this section and include unloading and handling, sorting, moving the panels into position using a forklift, installing and nailing. Maximum panel height is usually 12'. Equipment cost includes a forklift, hand tools, a portable air compressor with air hoses and two pneumatic-operated nailing guns. Costs are per square foot of wall, measured on one face. For scheduling purposes, estimate that a crew of 4 can place and fasten 3,500 to 4,500 SF of panels in an 8-hour day.
