Construction Performance Zone
We’re doubling the demos at the 2023 show with TWO locations!
Discover new products, ways you can use them and then see them in action during LIVE demos.
This unique space on the exhibit floor will again provide attendees with industry-best expertise for building more durable, energy efficient, higher-quality homes.
The Construction Performance Zone will provide attendees with industry-best expertise for building more durable, efficient, higher-quality homes—from basements, wall systems and roofs to use and types of materials, construction speed and cost. It will bring together an unprecedented collection of experts to present our demonstrations and talks. Ben Bogie, a second-generation high-performance builder from New England, and Josh Salinger, founder of Birdsmouth Design Build in Portland, Oregon, will lead the demos and will be joined throughout the week by a host of leading builders and industry influencers from across the country.
Key Learning Topics:
- Construction Techniques & Materials: Framing and Wall Systems, Insulation, Air/Water Sealing, Roofs, etc.
- Systems, Pre-Fabrication & Offsite Construction
- Lean Design, Value Engineering & Material Usage
- Resiliency & Durability
The Construction Performance Zone will feature three distinct learning areas to show and explain the processes for better performance and construction efficiency. The Demonstration Stage will feature a series of 30-minute interactive demonstrations leading attendees through the practical steps for constructing various building components using the latest techniques, tips and tricks in high performance construction. On the Presentation Stage, industry experts will host interactive talks that dive deeper into the best practices addressed on the Demo Stage as well as the latest research and growing trends in building and construction efficiency. Lastly, mock-ups created in the demos will be placed in the Building Display Area, offering a closer look at how various components are built and how products and techniques discussed translate to a real-world application.
