What It's About

For decades, advanced manufacturing techniques have been said to be on the verge of revolutionizing home building. Yet beyond trusses and panels, homes built substantially offsite represent only 3% of the market. Why is this? This advanced session will explore the promise and benefits of offsite construction—from the industry challenges that will spur its adoption to why it has not developed as expected to date. Explore a detailed template that will help you calculate the “true total cost” comparison between onsite and offsite, and gain a new understanding of the pros and cons of offsite methodologies. Leave with a better grasp of these construction methods so you may make informed decisions about whether it’s the right choice for your business.

What You’ll Learn

  • Examine the history of offsite building methodologies, including its failures and triumphs.
  • Analyze the benefits of offsite construction methods and why the labor shortage and other indusry challeges will continue to drive its adoption.
  • Explore case studies of builders deciding to adopt offsite methods (or not), and review the mistakes they made.
  • Learn how to make "true total cost" comparisons of onsite and offsite methods, which will enable better decision-making for your company.
