The opportunity for innovation in the homebuilding industry is undeniable and growing. The world is changing, and the need for better homes is unrelenting.
We care about the delivery of homes that respond to the real needs of the people who live in them, the builders who build them, and the greater environment. We know the realities of the field. We understand the challenges that manufacturers face. We have a clear vision of the future, and we’re not afraid to roll up our sleeves and do the work that is needed to develop solutions that offer clearly observable better value.
As consumers, we constantly evolve and have naturally diverse expectations, but ultimately, we want and expect the promise of better homes that are in harmony with our lives. Homes that are safe, healthy, durable, comfortable, efficient, responsible, and connected. Why? Because a home is the most important and central asset in our lives, and for the vast majority, it is the biggest investment.
Builders are tasked with discovering ways to deliver higher value, quality and performance in their homes. They have to respond to the needs of the consumer in a complex industry that increasingly faces challenges related to costs, workforce, standards, land and risk/liability. It’s not easy, but it must be done. There is great opportunity to create new value propositions and redefine relationships with customers. To achieve this, innovation must be embraced as an essential part of a builder’s business strategy and process.
We have to find a sustainable future. Climate change is real and visible. The earth’s resources that at one point seemed limitless—land, energy, water—must be much more diligently managed. What was once predictable, dependable, and available is much less so. Helping address the national need for smart resource use that supports sustainability has become a fundamental need that no one can ignore. Practically aligning this reality with the business of building homes will require a true sense of collaborative innovation.
