On Trend with Off Site: When & Where Off-Site Housing Technologies Will Emerge

March 1, 2019

During this year’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, I presented, “When and Where Off-Site Housing Technologies Will Emerge” to members of NAHB’s Building Systems Council (BSC). The presentation included information from a 10-year summary of our Annual Builder Practices Reports and a survey conducted in December 2018 of 300 home builders who were asked about their future intentions for using building components and off-site housing technologies. While I’d provided an overview of December’s survey findings here on our website, the presentation was based on a more in-depth analysis based on builder type, size, and region.

The information was well-received, and I ended up answering questions by BSC members for an hour or so afterward. Some topline findings that garnered the most interested included:

This is just a sample of the interesting tidbits that came out of this analysis. There’s much more to explore – check out the complete presentation and let me know what’s most intriguing to you.
