Offsite construction, building systems, prefabricated components, industrialized construction and manufactured housing are a few of the terms for residential construction that use factory-manufactured structural materials. Despite worldwide adoption and a century-long history, what we commonly refer to today as offsite construction can be confusing for industry veterans and newcomers.

Join Margaret Whalen and Currey Cornelius for a strategic overview of the offsite construction industry and its current place in the residential building market as they review economic forces that have prevented prior adoption of systems-built construction, what the industry is doing now to reverse those forces and offsite's impact on the future of home building.
