Experts to Discuss State of Systems-Built Industry at IBS
Industry experts covering all areas of the systems-built industry — modular, log, concrete and panelized systems — will discuss systems building during a press conference at 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13 at the 2008 International Builders’ Show in Orlando.
The press conference will be held in NAHB News Conference Room 203 A at the Orange County Convention Center.
Charles Bevier, editor of Building Systems magazine, will discuss how systems-built homes generate success by providing high-quality, “green” homes.
Jerry Rouleau, president of the Terryville, Conn.–based consulting firm, J. Rouleau & Associates LLC, and an expert on building systems technology for more than 25 years, will discuss how systems-built industry is positioning itself to expand.
Ed Sullivan, chief economist for the Portland Cement Association, will present a long-range economic forecast that includes how “green” building will affect the residential market.
Systems-built homes are constructed to the same code standards as site-built construction but completed in a fraction of the time with a fraction of the waste. Systems-built homes also reduce costly weather exposure.
