Overview

Although home builders can’t control lumber prices, they can control their lumber costs by improving efficiencies in their lumber management and purchasing processes. This workshop offers effective strategies for minimizing waste and improving material usage to reduce costs.

Loaded with practical solutions and guidance from industry experts, the Lumber Management and Purchasing Strategies Workshop features best practices for reviewing plans, bidding lumber, structuring deliveries, and defining scopes to control lumber costs.

The instructors of this unique workshop have a proven track record of helping builders identify areas for reducing direct construction costs by 5%-10% with plan reviews and estimating services that focus on increasing construction efficiency and reducing material waste.
