What It's About

Our industry faces a crisis in three areas: affordability, manufacturing efficiency and sustainability. In this session, hear from four companies that set out to rethink the way we build. Innovative offsite solutions deliver a home building process that can be done smarter, faster and better for all. In this session, explore the use of vertical integration, modular building and “micro-distribution” centers. Gain insight into the use of pre-built modular and principles from the Toyota Production System (TPS) to increase quality, shorten schedules and deliver beautiful, affordable homes even in the most expensive markets. And see how advancements in offsite construction, combined with transparent, collaborative supply chains, offer solutions to advancing sustainability.

What You’ll Learn

  • Understand why the construction industry is ripe for tech-driven innovations that use different materials and sustainability to make the industry more efficient.
  • Explore how modular building can ease the shortage of attainable housing by improving efficiency in construction and merging supply and demand at a community level.
  • Learn what a lean offsite construction process looks like, and how to apply the principles of the Toyota Production System to the entire value stream to reduce time and money waste.
  • Realize the multiple benefits of offsite, prefab construction including, increased productivity, improved site safety, and reduced environmental impact and material consumption.
