Totally Cool & Completely Cost-Effective
Ticket Required: $75*
Many architects design for “cool.” Yet few design what builders really need; “Totally Cool & Completely Cost-Effective". During the downturn, design was often compromised when cost-cutting ruled. With foreclosures, short-sales and inventory reduction campaigns all "rebidding" the housing market, the common builder tactics were understandable. With these, however, came extensive collateral damage in quality, customer satisfaction, supplier & trade relationships and profitability. More than 20 case studies of the application of Lean Process to design & construction demonstrate homes of any type and price can reflect great design, with zero damage.
In this hands-on, ½ -day workshop, residential architect Todd Hallett of TK Design and industry consultant & author Scott Sedam of TrueNorth, team up to reveal the principles of Lean-Design, taking participants through multiple case-studies from around the country. Todd’s unique background includes serving as VP Purchasing, COO and CEO of a 230-unit production builder while responsible for award-winning designs, giving him a deep understanding of cost that few architects acquire. Working together, Scott and Todd discovered that combining Lean Process with Lean Design leads to breakthrough results with builders of all sizes and product-types, in any market. Participants will learn the opportunities and obstacles, how to implement and leave thinking differently about how beautiful a home can be–and still remain under budget.
*Includes a complimentary ticket to the Strategies For Getting Back Into The Game (Wednesday, June 5, 9:45-12:00pm)
