Results Are In on How to Build Better Homes for Lower Cost

This free webinar shows how builders were able to optimize design while saving resources, time, and money through the Housing 2.0 program.

The Housing 2.0: A Disruption Survival Guide and the workshops of the Housing 2.0 program provide a framework for consistently delivering homes with a superior user experience at a lower cost. This includes nine strategies with over 150 best practices. The big question is: Does the program deliver on its promise? 

The “better home for less cost” claim was put to the test in 2021 with two action groups where like-minded high-performance builders collaborated on applying design optimization best practices. And the results are in. All the builders substantially improved their existing designs, including $10,000s of cost savings and added value. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn from their experience, including how they customized the Housing 2.0 design optimization framework for their companies, benchmarked it to one or more current house designs, iterated towards optimized designs, and tabulated impressive business outcomes. Better for lower cost is a great business model. Check out this webinar–it’s a great way to get started!
