Offsite construction podcast

Forest Economic Advisors offers two free educational podcasts.

 For those seeking to learn more about the topic of offsite construction and the people leading the charge, Forest Economic Advisors, as part of their Industrialized Wood-Based Conference, scheduled for October 24-26, in Boston has posted two free podcasts on the topic.

Entitled “How Ikea and Skanska Joined Forces to Tackle Affordable Housing,” the first podcast features the story of how the furniture giant combined forces with a European construction giant to form a major offsite homebuilder that’s taking on the housing challenge in Scandinavia.

The second podcast, “A Conversation with Offsite Building Pioneer Gerry McCaughey,” offers an insightful conversation with the CEO of California-based Entekra covering a variety of offsite construction-centered topics.

The Industrialized Wood-Based Construction Conference will bring together national and international experts to network, share information, and discuss the growing, exciting opportunity of offsite construction. Featuring 36 speakers and 50+ exhibitors, the conference ensures attendees will walk away with a heightened knowledge of what’s coming next in the industry; new business models, technologies, automation, and supply-chain innovations; and how all of these things work together to revolutionize productivity in the construction marketplace.

Open to architects, developers, engineers, contractors, home builders, software developers, machinery manufacturers, lumber, engineered lumber and mass timber producers, and other industry professionals interested in fast, affordable, high-quality construction, IWBC will provide attendees with comprehensive information on new business models, technologies, automation, and supply chain innovations already revolutionizing construction productivity around the globe. Included in this focus: all fully integrated offsite solutions, including mass timber, panelized, modular and volumetric construction, as well as BIM/3D CAD.
