Deb Sheehan, our executive director of firmwide strategies, will deliver the keynote presentation at the Housing X Conference in Richmond, VA on May 22. Hosted by Housing Virginia and the Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech, the event is billed as an “un-conference” to showcase what’s next in affordable housing, construction, design, materials, finance and land use planning. More information about the event can be found online.
In her Ted-talk style presentation, Deb will highlight numerous disruptive forces impacting design, construction, the housing market and more. She will specifically highlight the emergence of modular design and other alternative construction methods as strategies to accelerate project timelines and revenue capture while reducing costs and risk without sacrificing design quality. CannonDesign is highly invested in advancing such methods through its progressive design build capabilities and investment in ModularDesign+ among other efforts.
