Building Knowledge Session

Site vs. Modular: How the Construction Processes Differ

Tuesday, January 31 | 9:30 - 10:30 AM
LVCC - West 223

What It’s About

Home builders are only as good as their processes. To profitably complete a build, procedures must be in place to handle your back office, the job site and your customer. In the face of a fractured supply chain and diminished labor pool, are your company's processes and procedures strong enough to accommodate a new way of building homes? What would it take to adapt your business to a new construction method? Unpack the differences between running a company using traditional stick-built and modular construction. Get in-depth details on the finer points of modular home building—from partnering with a manufacturer to site preparation, set day and finishing the job onsite.

What You’ll Learn

  • Gain a deeper understanding of modular processes and how they differ from site-built construction.
  • Discover the key differences between finishing a site-built home and units delivered by a modular factory.
  • Understand the modular construction cost, including the back-office policies and procedures needed to ensure your projects are completed on time and within budget.
  • Identify methods on how to vet, engage and partner with a modular manufacturer.
