What It's About

Builders have often shied away from offsite and systems-built technologies given the unknowns of shifting from a stick-built process. But with rising lumber costs and skilled labor shortages, many are now eager to take a serious second look at these alternatives. This session will explore a range of systems-built options including concrete, panelized, steel and pre-fabricated components as well as the pros/cons and best practices with each. Hear from industry representatives that have first-hand experience incorporating offsite construction methods into single and multifamily projects. Leave with a clear understanding of your options and how these systems can help you hit deadlines, build more homes with less overhead and reduce job-site waste.

What You’ll Learn

  • Gain insight about the different types of offsite construction available for your business.
  • Examine the benefits and limitations of each offsite construction method so you can make an informed decision on which system is best for your projects.
  • Learn how to initiate new projects and convert existing stick-built projects to incorporate prefabricated components.
  • Identify designers, contractors, building material experts and other resources to help support your conversion to systems-built construction.
