Embracing Innovation: Build a Better Business, Build a Better Industry

The housing industry is still leaning on the same construction methods and design solutions used decades ago; simultaneously, trends, demographics and technology have transformed dramatically. In a rapidly changing market environment, research and development (R&D) commitments create new value for forward-thinking businesses. In this session, our panel of experts will share how they used R&D tactics and collaboration with value chain partners to successfully propel their businesses and the industry forward. Topics include 3D printing technology, modular components, designs to address demographic and societal trends, offsite construction techniques to reduce our environmental footprint, and more. HOW TO ATTEND Participants must be registered for an All Access Pass or 1-Day Education + Expo Pass for the day of the session. Seating for Building Knowledge sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. VISIT NAHB IBS EVENT PAGE TO LEARN MORE

Wednesday, February 9
Residential Educators Workshop

It's no secret that the housing industry has been slow to change. Jobs in housing over the last 10 years or so haven't been much different than they were 20, 30 or more years ago. But expectations for future talent in our industry are changing dramatically due to a number of factors and pressures from within the industry and beyond: growing investments in technology-enabled business and BIM; expansions in off-site construction, build-for-rent and alternative finance models; greater need for attainable housing; and emergence of master trades. Governments and investors for housing and community development companies are also pushing to deliver on ESG principles (environmental, social and governance) in order to gain access to land and financing. As a result, the opportunities for young talent have expanded and so have the skillsets that are required. Hear from a panel of experts representing different facets of the housing ecosystem, including homebuilding and trade contracting, finance, investments and industry analysis. Then break into smaller groups for the opportunity to engage directly in discussion with panelists and other attendee and reengage the entire room with final questions and key takeaways. Faculty members who teach construction management courses at colleges, universities and high schools around the country and all interested IBS attendees are welcome.
