How Offsite Construction Can Help in 2019 and Beyond
Offsite construction provides residential home builders with quick, efficient building solutions amid skilled labor shortages and rising material costs. But not all builders may be as familiar as they would like with systems-built components to begin incorporating them into their businesses.
At next month’s International Builders’ Show, the Building Systems Council (BSC) Lounge — sponsored by Huber Engineered Woods, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating, and MiTek — provides ample educational opportunities for those who may not be sure what building systems entail, but are interested in learning more about them as a resource for the future. The lounge will be located in the Las Vegas Convention Center, North 242.
Building Systems 101
Each building system represented within the BSC will host an “ask the experts” panel to explain how each system works and how to integrate it into business operations.
