PCBC 2015: Join us in San Diego

PCBC 2015

PCBC 2015 is just a few short weeks away, at the San Diego Convention Center June 24-25. As you can see, PCBC has been packing in the bells and whistles, and this year’s show will feature hundreds of keynotes, workshops, and events.

We would like to highlight one in particular: a keynote by Scott Sedam, President of True North Development and Contributing Editor of Professional Builder Magazine. Scott will be presenting “Overcoming the Labor Shortage: Becoming the Builder of Choice” on Thursday June 25 at 11:00 am. Scott presented a similarly anticipated session on Lean Building at our 2013 Customer Conference. Here’s a sneak peek:

The shortage of qualified trade contractors is a problem that vexes the entire industry and finally people are waking up to it, but not for the right reasons. Suddenly trade shortages as an obstacle to growth is appearing in articles and blogs and occasionally even cited by industry market researchers and engineers. Here’s the bottom line: We have tremendous structural demand at all price points yet there is ample evidence that in each segment and especially entry-level, sales prices are too high. Compounding the problem, what retail prices a builder can push through are not covering the across-the-board increases in cost of land, labor, material and overhead. The result is increased sales volume, with decreased profit margins. The biggest single component of this increase in most markets is the trade shortage.
