Education and Introduction: A 60-minute (1 AIA CEU learning unit) session will empower participants—builders, architects, engineers, marketers, manufacturers, and development specialists—to engage in an exclusive opportunity to learn to make smarter decisions today about the future of housing design, building technology, community planning, and home technology.

Focus for the session will be from the yearlong discovery of the BUILDER Woodside Homes Chowa Project that made it a shining case-study for discovery and training.

This session will take participants inside Chowa’s design, development, construction, and customer focus process to learn how new perspectives can merge with technology advances for more balance, better performance, construction efficiency, health and well-being and overall live-ability.
