“There’s no doubt in my mind, no doubt whatsoever, that a modular project is going to have a higher degree of quality than a conventional project. Modular allows even a small manufacturing facility to produce, you know, 100 homes in a year.”- Steven Haylestrom, The Modular Solution/Rise Up Modular Construction is an ancient profession with deep roots in cultures around the world. While other industries change rapidly, our approach to constructing homes and buildings iterates at a snail’s pace. As the need for homes grows, new construction techniques offer a much-needed update. Modular construction, where modules are built in factories and assembled on-site, is at the forefront of this innovation. However, does a modular approach offer enough to sway contractors, architects, and decision-makers? Can it upset established methods, or will it remain niche, useful only in massive, repetitive projects? Topics discussed in this interview:- Steven’s background in modular construction- How does modular construction differ?- The biggest roadblock for modular construction today- Specific benefits for choosing modular over traditional construction- Quality and standards development- The unique advantage of modular- Advancements in construction methods- The new role of the architect- Design technology in modular construction Send Steven an email at steven@haylestrom.com, connect with him on LinkedIn, or visit his website, themodularsolution.com.  For more Construction Disruption, listen on Apple Podcasts or YouTubeConnect with us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedInThis podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrpChartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
“You can see a project from start to finish, and you have confidence that the house or multifamily unit was built according to the standards and specifications that the builder promised they would deliver. Our customers provide feedback, and we don’t edit it. We put it into our report, and then we publish it publicly.”- Connor Dillon, Building Science Institute From quality to energy efficiency, construction thrives on accuracy, clarity, and transparency. Better homes, service, and relationships result when contractors, inspectors, energy raters, and homeowners are open and honest with each other. Working together to build better homes will only propel the construction industry forward. Talented people are creating new, innovative solutions for better-built homes, but it will take collaboration from all parties to truly advance things. Efforts like Building Science Institute are crucial for this new vision to come true. Their stringent quality measures, focus on customer feedback, and industry partnerships position them to serve your needs with honesty. Topics discussed in this interview:- What is a better-built home?- Home lifespan around the world- Building Science Institute’s daily function- BSI’s unique offerings- Looking to the future- Connor’s college experience and transition to construction- Learning a valuable lesson- Rapid-fire questionsCheck out the Building Science Institute or connect with Connor on LinkedInFor more Construction Disruption, listen on Apple Podcasts or YouTubeConnect with us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedInThis podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrpChartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
“There is a lot we can offer people if it would be easy enough, intuitive enough, integrated enough into their daily workflows. With this in mind, we built our product to be minimal in tech-savviness yet powerful.”-    Maria Khokhlova, TraceAir Often, the best innovations are right in front of us. For Maria and the TraceAir team, combining construction and technology felt obvious yet unexplored. Their first thought was to make drone imagery accessible for job sites. As contractors move dirt and erect structures, providing updated data to key people elevates their efforts. TraceAir is a modern map made with user-friendliness in mind. As a result, it streamlines decision-making and increases efficiency for construction professionals. Is construction in need of technological developments like TraceAir?

“I was probably the first journalist in the hotel industry to write about the environment consistently. I grew up in nature, so in some way, I like to advocate for it in my work. Nowadays, I find a sense of urgency among hotel companies about the climate and the state of the world in general.” -       Glenn Hasek, Green Lodging News Hotels occupy a unique spot in the building and construction world. They enjoy an economy of scale with millions of rooms and hundreds of millions of guests. But, hotels are driven by profit, so can green alternatives improve quality of life and lower costs too? As the rest of the world figures out a more sustainable way to live, hotels are a perfect test bed for technological advancements ranging from energy management systems to dissolvable soap containers. While tech thrusts hotels forward into a brighter, energy-efficient future, will they lead construction in the charge or trail behind? Topics discussed in this interview:-      Todd’s trip to METALCON-      Glenn’s start in journalism-      Hotels and their early attitude toward the environment-      New developments in hotel design-      Projections for future advancements-      Solar and hotels-      Smoking vs. nonsmoking and the battle for air quality-      Rapid-fire questionsTo learn more visit https://greenlodgingnews.com/ or connect with Glenn via email at greenlodgingnews@gmail.com For more Construction Disruption, listen on Apple Podcasts or YouTubeConnect with us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedInThis podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrpChartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
“I’ve been in sales, leadership, and management. I ran a crew and was a laborer on a job site before. Over the last 12 years, I’ve experienced everything in residential construction. There’s a lack of transparency and communication breakdowns we could all avoid if we had the right systems in place and people were on the same page.” -    Ron Nussbaum, Co-Founder/CEO of Nuttnest Communication makes life tick. We clear things up, set expectations, misunderstand each other, cause problems, waste time, and make life-changing decisions. Like any other avenue, construction and remodeling rely on clear communication between both parties. The homeowner wants dates, times, and reassurance, while the contractor needs a way to show their vision, schedule work, and provide updates. The current solution is a fragmented mess of social media, phone calls, and text messages that often miss the mark.  Nuttnest proposes a hub for effortless communication above everything. Will they deliver? How will it work for your company?  Topics discussed in this interview:-      Ron’s background in construction-      Construction’s public perception-      Taking an active role in redefining communication-      Developing a central platform for contractor-customer interaction-      Designing an accessible app for all-      The story behind the name-      Who is Nuttnest for?-      How far along is Nuttnest?Learn more about Nuttnest at: https://www.nuttnest.com/Connect with Ron on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ron-nussbaum/For more Construction Disruption, listen on Apple Podcasts or YouTubeConnect with us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedInThis podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrpChartable - https://chartable.com/privacy

While the construction industry isn’t alone in the labor shortage, some specific problems it faces are unique.  First, finding people who want to work outside with their hands is difficult. Many potential workers choose college over the skilled trades, a trend that is beginning to change.  Second, it’s also dealing with a multi-generational workforce. There are many factors to consider when integrating younger and older employees. Relationships are complex as new employees join the fold, older ones retire, and others work from home. According to expert Dr. Melissa Furman, understanding these differences but focusing on the similarities between each generation is key to a happy, coherent workplace.   Melissa’s passion for guiding people inspired her to launch Career Potential, where she helps individuals achieve and organizations succeed. She’s taking the construction industry by storm with her balanced approach to training. In this episode, Melissa shares her advice for young leaders and older professionals and addresses one of today’s hot topics: remote work. She believes in giving younger professionals a chance to be innovative and ambitious but advises them to learn from the older employees. The future of workplace relationships is going to be a turbulent one, at least for a while. The key to harmony is being open-minded, innovative, and comfortable working with chaos.  Tune in to learn how to beat the labor shortage with an integrated workforce and make construction sexy again.  Topics discussed in this episode:How can we create appeal for hands-on jobs?The importance of succession planningThe multi-generational workplaceFinding the right fit in the workforceCombining ambition and innovation with experience and work ethicAssessment tools for self-awarenessPeeling back the onion on working from homeBeing flexible about flexibilityGet over yourself, or you’ll sink your own shipBe patient, listen, and don’t make assumptions Head to unlockcareerpotential.com to invest in your employees with Melissa’s training and guidance! Connect with Melissa on LinkedIn. To hear more Construction Disruption episodes, visit us on Apple Podcasts or YouTube. Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrpChartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
