They come in, pour the walls and are framing in a couple of days.
I am sure you did your due diligence, found the best cost/value option for your build and saw your earlier posts regarding this but can't help but think there is a business opportunity for someone in your area to do this as a service outside of the builders and do it cheaper/faster/better while making a decent living doing it.
