Another year has come and gone for the International Builders Show! We enjoyed a great year filled with education, award galas and networking. See our presentations and award winning projects below!
Chris Grady with KEPHART presented with Phil Stuepfert with HR Green and Jared Carlon with Norris Design on navigating challenging approvals. This presentation covered strategies for developing strong relationships with citizens, elected officials, and municipal staff through social media, honest communication, and outreach.
This fast-paced design session is a staple at every International Builders Show. This year, Sarah Kaplan with KEPHART presented with Angela Harris with TRIO, Todd Hallett with TK Design & Associates, and John Brock with Brockworks, Inc. This panel of industry leaders share the design mistakes you need to stop making and the design “dos” that are trending in today’s buyers.
Adam Kantor with KEPHART presented with Eric Brown with Artisan Homes on how to select the best sites for residential development. They shared all about how to effectively evaluate the merits of a site and how to determine the right product offering and pricing that will be best suited for it.
Sarah Kaplan with KEPHART teamed up with Jenni Lantz at DesignLens to share how to capture the attention of single women homebuyers- representing 20% of the market. The features and amenities Sarah and Jenni presented are important considerations when designing and building new home and communities in today’s market.
