Green Building Alliance Course: Modular Building Factory Tour, October 6, 8am-2:30pm
Event Description

Tour a modular building factory where high-performance homes & light commercial buildings are fabricated for delivery & set within our market. This factory has partnered with a local builder to produce a net-zero concept home in partnership with ProBuilder media. The concept home is a result of the 2022 America at Home Study, where significant covid-era data collection led to the design development of a home that meets the market demands of today’s buyers, including energy-efficiency, health & wellness.

The event will include a presentation of how modular construction is more environmentally friendly due to lower waste and better resource management, and how better quality-control in a factory setting leads to more resilient structures. Factory construction also improves worker safety and typically offers better employee benefits. There will also be a panel discussion about the process leading up to the design, development and construction of the concept home.
