    Name: Fire Rebuilding & Homebuilding Workshop: How to Build Faster & Smarter
    Date: May 18, 2019
    Time: 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Learn how you can get your home built dramatically faster, less expensively, and more sustainably through Plant's modern approach to prefabricated construction. Bring your design ideas (or architect)--just about anything is possible! WHO SHOULD ATTEND This informational workshop is geared towards fire victims and other individuals wishing to build a home or accessory dwelling unit (ADU). Whether you are already designing a home with an architect, just beginning your research, or narrowing your options, this workshop will explain how your project could be built utilizing Plant’s prefabrication construction process. Individuals, architects, and builders are welcome to attend. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN We’ll cover homebuilding basics, explaining the differences between prefab and site-built construction methods. We’ll walk through a typical Plant Prefab build, highlighting both the benefits and limitations of our prefab process to help you understand which building method is best for your unique project. We’ll share examples of homes we’ve built, common challenges and how we’ve addressed them, as well as the specific measures Plant Prefab takes to make our homes sustainable, healthy, and fire-resilient. Following our brief (roughly 30-minute) presentation, we’ll take questions and remain on hand for individual discussions. RESOURCES FOR FIRE VICTIMS Staff working with Woolsey fire victims will be available to discuss how our extensive experience with fire rebuilds (and current work with other Malibu families) helps expedite the process. They'll also share information about the free services, valuable discounts, and complimentary upgrades Plant Prefab extends to wildfire victims. ABOUT THE HOST Plant Prefab is the first prefabricated design and construction company in the United States dedicated to sustainable construction, materials, processes, and operations. We provide the time and cost advantages of prefabricated construction, without the usual limitations: We can work with your architects (or you can work with ours) to create your own design, or you can choose from one of our award-winning standard homes and make it yours. We build healthy, high-quality homes for individuals, architects, and developers alike. All Plant Prefab projects are built in our 62,000 square-foot home factory in Rialto, CA. Our design studio, LivingHomes, has fourteen years of experience helping California families build their dream homes, and rebuild after loss. LivingHomes designs have won considerable industry recognition including the AIA’s top sustainable award, the United States Green Building Council’s first ever LEED Platinum rating for a residential home, Architizer’s Jury and Popular Choice Awards, Green Builder Magazine’s Home of Year, Business 2.0 “World’s 11 Coolest Products,” Business Week’s “Architectural Wonders of the World,” and the Sustainable Quality Awards Grand Prize.
