ULI Colorado: Construction Update: How technology is transforming construction, design, and development


Wednesday, November 20th, 2019
5:00pm - 7:00pm MST


Simple Homes Will open in a new window 5151 Bannock ST Denver, CO 80216-1850 UNITED STATES
Labor-intensive and wasteful of building materials, construction technology has barely changed in the U.S. since World War II. With rapidly rising costs threatening both pro formas and general affordability, developers, architects and builders are responding with innovations. Has the time finally come for computer-customized, factory-built homes and commercial buildings? Will manufactured cross-laminated timber (CLT) replace steel framing with greater efficiencies and more sustainable solutions? Come learn from the leaders and network in one of Denver’s newest venues for factory-built homes.

Want to see the innovations first-hand?

Sign up for a 4pm tour of Conscience Bay's newly-renovated The Blacksmith Shop, home to Simple Homes' factory, or a 3:30pm tour of Platte Fifteen, Denver's first cross-laminated timber (CLT) project.
Featured presenters:

Michele Decker (moderator), Principal, 4240 Architecture
Jeff Hopfenbeck, Founder, Simple Homes
Justin Schwaiger, Manager (Estimating Operations), Katerra
Steve Eaton, Senior Vice President, Crescent Development (invited)

Presented by the ULI Colorado Young Leaders' Discovery Committee
Chairs: Eric Veith, JLL and Nate Santillanes, BOK
