What It's About:

Why should a builder be constrained to trade partners located in its local market? What if a California-based architect could work with a Florida engineer to bring exciting new home designs to Northern Virginia? In the hyper-competitive DC metro, one builder has done exactly that, successfully introducing maverick designs and gaining competitive advantage through distance collaboration. No longer confined to the limits of geography, builders can select the architects, engineers and suppliers they prefer and use a systematized construction process for faster collaboration and better pricing. Learn about the design and project management technologies and creative thinking that allowed for innovative product design, accelerated cycle times and a disruption of this highly-competitive market.

What You'll Learn:

  • Learn how collaboration and design technology is unleashing builders to work with their preferred architectural, engineering, design and supply teams, regardless of geography.
  • Hear how progressive builders use distance collaboration to introduce uniquely new home designs to a sub-market and gain competitive advantage and premium pricing.
  • Understand how to implement and leverage project management and BIM design technology to collaboratively bring homes to market quicker and with greater efficiencies.
