Characteristics of Innovative Production Home Builders
Since the post-World War II days of Levitt and Sons, production builders have dramatically shaped the way we build and what we build in America. Increasingly producing the majority of the new housing stock in the United States, production builders have developed scale economies to leverage with their material suppliers, to build efficiently and cost-effectively, and to implement major technological changes through the industry. With these resources, some production builders have not implemented drastic changes in their processes, while others have pushed the envelope in industrializing their construction sites. This context has led PATH to ask important questions: Do production builders have a whole staff that looks out for new techniques and materials? How do they implement change throughout their organization? What are their relationships with consumers, and do they communicate technological information to them?
