What It's About

The housing industry is still leaning on the same construction methods and design solutions used decades ago; simultaneously, trends, demographics and technology have transformed dramatically. In a rapidly changing market environment, research and development (R&D) commitments create new value for forward-thinking businesses. In this session, our panel of experts will share how they used R&D tactics and collaboration with value chain partners to successfully propel their businesses and the industry forward. Topics include 3D printing technology, modular components, designs to address demographic and societal trends, offsite construction techniques to reduce our environmental footprint, and more.

What You’ll Learn

  • Explore the tactics used for implementing R&D into your business strategies for future-oriented housing development.
  • Learn how new construction technologies and innovative design aimed at reflecting demographic shifts can expand your market impact.
  • Identify solutions, such as 3D printing technology and creative design density, for adapting market changes and responding to attainability challenges.
  • Understand the increased value of R&D on the longer-term advancements in construction.
