Learn About Diversifying Into Light Commercial on Nov. 5
With builders looking to boost business and bolster morale during the downturn, residential builders who have expanded into commercial construction will particpate in an NAHB audio seminar to discuss how to diversify into the light commercial market. The hour-long broadcast begins at 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Presented by the National Commercial Builders Council (NCBC) and The NAHB University of Housing, participants in the “Up Your Profits in a Down Market with Light Commercial Construction” seminar will explain how to diversify into light commercial construction and this segment’s similarities and differences — particularly regarding codes and business process — to residential construction.
In addition, the seminar’s experts will discuss why diversifying into light commercial might be easier than you think and how builders can identify opportunities in their markets.
