What It's About:

It’s no secret that home building is full of inefficiencies. We rely on a tangled network of designers, contractors, subs and suppliers to complete our projects. The result—delays, cost overruns, waste and, often, unhappy clients. Enter Katerra, a transformative new technology company that is applying successful Silicon Valley principles to construction. Founded by Michael Marks, a former CEO and board member for companies like Flex, Tesla, GoPro and Zappos, Katerra is bringing a new level of efficiency and precision to their projects through vertical integration, technology and a systems based approach. In short, they are taking control of every aspect of the building process, resulting in better quality, faster delivery, less waste, lower costs and more efficient use of labor. Come learn more about this new approach, what it means for our industry and how you, too, can apply disruptive principles to your business.

Learn more about the presentations and events taking place at the all new IBS Live. This year, we’re exploring the future of housing and the products, processes and people disrupting our industry.
