Summit to Highlight Latest and Greatest in Offsite Construction

Filed in Home Building by on May 25, 2017 3 Comments

Hundreds of builders, manufacturers and suppliers of modular, panelized, concrete, log and timber-framed homes will gather this fall for the the Building Systems Housing Summit — the only national conference dedicated to the offsite construction industry.

The 2016 Building Systems Housing Summit was the highest-attended Building Systems Councils (BSC) event in the post-recession era. Each year, the Summit offers one of the best opportunities for industry pros to stay ahead in the emerging offsite construction industry, and it’s also a great way for newcomers to learn about the benefits of building systems.

“It was terrific seeing such a wide cross-section of the building systems industry at last year’s Summit,” said Buddy Hughes, immediate past chairman of the BSC and owner of Hughes Construction in Lexington, N.C. “I was particularly impressed by the amount of non-BSC members present, especially builders.”

Now in its 32nd year, the conference will take place Oct. 8-10 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pa. The two-and-a-half day event will feature a variety of education sessions and countless networking opportunities.

Mike Moore, founder of Moore Leadership & Peak Performance and a highly rated speaker at the NAHB International Builders’ Show, is scheduled to present. Sam Rashkin, a chief architect at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, will provide an education session as well.

“The amount of networking that took place at last year’s Summit was tremendous,” said Norm Hall, chairman of the BSC and territory manager for Factory Built Structures at Simpson Strong-Tie. “In fact, my company has upped its sponsorship commitment for 2017 based on last year’s results.”

    Can’t wait to reserve my spot at this years Summit! I really enjoyed the 2016 conference in Asheville, North Carolina. The education was tremendous and I made countless business connections during the events networking receptions.

  2. Is “Framing the American Dream” stats correct if there is zero cost installed for off-site building, transportation and heavy equipment cost associated with off-site construction? Why are those hard costs not represented in this study?
