Modular Construction for Your Next 55+ Housing Project
Tuesday, Jan. 21, 8:00 – 8:30am
LVCC – 55+ Housing Central – North 261

Constructed in an off-site controlled manufacturing facility, and assembled together at the final building site, modular construction is a growing trend in the home building industry. In fact, according to a recent study by the Home Innovation Research Labs, 15% of all regional and national builders plan on using modular construction in the next five years. An advantageous construction method for accessory dwelling units, multifamily projects and single family homes, modular has many applications for the 55+ market. Hear from Ken Semler, Founder and CEO of Express Modular, about the benefits modular can offer your next 55+ project, including onsite labor reductions, shorter construction timelines and reduced dependency on subcontractors.

Build More Custom Homes with Modular Construction
Tuesday, Jan. 21, 8:45 – 9:15am
LVCC – Custom Building Central – North 257

During this presentation we’ll dispel the myths, mistruths and fake news that are preventing custom home builders from adopting modular construction. Hear from Ken Semler, a nationwide custom home builder that exclusively uses modular construction, about the design flexibility, customization and efficiency modular can offer your next custom home project. If hiring shortages, lack of available subcontractors and unpredictable material cost are forcing you to turn down jobs, modular construction can be the answer your home building business needs.

Ask the Experts: Adopt a Modular Building System for Your Business
Tuesday, January 21, 10:30 – 11:00am
LVCC – BSC Hospitality Lounge – North 242

Join us for an interactive and informative roundtable discussion about modular construction. You will hear and ask questions directly from manufacturers, builders and suppliers of the modular housing industry and gain a comprehensive understanding about adapting this construction method to your business. After the presentation, stick around the Building Systems Councils Lounge for one-on-one networking opportunities.

How Modular Construction Can Meet Your Adaptive Housing Needs
Thursday, January 23, 11:30am – 12:00pm
LVCC – BSC Hospitality Lounge – North 242

The Silver Tsunami is coming. Every 8 seconds someone turns 65 years old, and by the year 2050, the 85+ age group will outnumber those who are between 65 – 84 years old. While the older population is rising, so is the popularity of modular construction. During this session, hear from two Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS) about the financial opportunities available to builders who adopt modular construction for the 55+ market. Get a complete breakdown, from conception to finished product, on how modular construction can meet the needs of your clients seeking adaptive-style housing.
