2017 BSC Summit Oct 8-10 - Registration is Now Open

Hundreds of builders, manufacturers and suppliers of modular, panelized, concrete, log and timber-framed homes will gather this fall for the the Building Systems Housing Summit — the only national conference dedicated to the offsite construction industry.


The 2016 Building Systems Housing Summit was the highest-attended Building Systems Councils (BSC) event in the post-recession era. Each year, the Summit offers one of the best opportunities for industry pros to stay ahead in the emerging offsite construction industry, and it’s also a great way for newcomers to learn about the benefits of building systems.

“It was terrific seeing such a wide cross-section of the building systems industry at last year’s Summit,” said Buddy Hughes, immediate past chairman of the BSC and owner of Hughes Construction in Lexington, N.C. “I was particularly impressed by the amount of non-BSC members present, especially builders.”

Now in its 32nd year, the conference will take place Oct. 8-10 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pa. The two-and-a-half day event will feature a variety of education sessions and countless networking opportunities.

Mike Moore, founder of Moore Leadership & Peak Performance and a highly rated speaker at the NAHB International Builders’ Show, is scheduled to present. Sam Rashkin, a chief architect at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, will provide an education session as well.

“The amount of networking that took place at last year’s Summit was tremendous,” said Norm Hall, chairman of the BSC and territory manager for Factory Built Structures at Simpson Strong-Tie. “In fact, my company has upped its sponsorship commitment for 2017 based on last year’s results.”

That Sam Rashkin s attending should tell us all this: modular/systems building is a growing beacon on the construction industry radar. The DOE is a government agency whose research is outstanding but whose budget under the current administration remains uncertain. That the DOE would make time for a visit tells us we're making progress.

Modular Industry: it's our time to shine. We need to stand up, be counted, and bring our A-Game. Shoot the moon and show how OUR building method can deliver Zero Energy for Americans.

When we do, just imagine the opportunities that will open up from Universities, other Fed research labs, and VC's seeking to house Americans First.

Who wants to play?
