Tennessee Road Trip: Branch Technology, Clayton + Goodall Homes
START TIME: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2ND AT NOON EASTERN
STOP TIME: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3RD AT NOON EASTERN
We’re taking a road trip to Knoxville and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Care to join us?
Betsy Scott, our Executive Director, Program + Engagement, and Michael Dickens, our Vice Chair, will be presenting the morning of October 2nd at this year’s NAHB Building Systems Housing Summit in Knoxville. After we share our vision for the Future Homebuilding Company, we plan to stay an extra day to get an inside look at three companies: Branch Technology, Clayton Homes + Goodall Homes.
OCTOBER 2 | BRANCH TECHNOLOGY | CHATTANOOGA, TN Late Afternoon Tour + Demonstration
Hop a ride in the Alliance tour bus in Knoxville at noon (or meet us in Chattanooga), and we’ll take you to see a live demonstration of Branch Technologies’ 3D printing capabilities.
Branch Technologies is an architectural fabricator specializing in large-scale 3D printing, who brings a new level of design freedom and resource stewardship to construction. In 2016, they hosted a design competition for 3D printed housing in the U.S. with a winning design from the architecture firm WATG.
After the demo and Q&A, we’ll bring everyone back to Knoxville for some great food and conversation.
OCTOBER 3 | CLAYTON + GOODALL HOMES | KNOXVILLE, TN Morning Factory Tour, Site Tour and Q+A
We'll meet up and carpool again early Wednesday morning.
Clayton Homes is the largest builder of manufactured housing and modular homes in the U.S., and in 2016, they acquired one of the country’s most innovative builders in terms of quality management, 2014 Professional Builder of the Year Goodall Homes.
We'll start the day with a tour of Clayton Homes' factory, led by Colt Davis, VP of Operations for the Supply Division, which will be instrumental in bringing off-site solutions to Clayton's family of production homebuilders. Will follow that up with a tour at Goodall Homes' new Knoxville division, where we’ll learn about some of their latest innovations and engage with their team.
We'll wrap up around lunch time. Stay for lunch and connect with other roadtrippers, or head on your way and make it home in time for dinner.
