Attention: Northeast Builders and Modular Factory Sales Reps

Change is inevitable especially when it comes to building codes. When these changes occur, many builders and their factory sales reps have little or no knowledge of the impact these codes can have until the day your home is red lined by the local code official.

There are a series of Builder Breakfasts and Boot Camps scheduled to address some of these changes.

For builders: How many times over the past few years has your factory sales rep walked into your office, emailed or called you letting you know about a change to energy codes and how it will impact your houses’ HERS Rating? If you answered either once or never, you are the winner. Here is chance to learn about the latest energy codes affecting your building area.

For factory sales reps: When was the last time a member of management explained a new code or regulation to you in great detail so that you could explain it to your builders? Yeah, that happens a lot.

On MARCH 8, 2017 in the Middletown, NY Courtyard by Marriott, a Builder Breakfast featuring Rick Terry, well known modular industry HERS Rater, will be going over the new energy regulations and holding a training session on how to prepare your new homes to meet the new standards.

Rick Terry, HERS Rater
Here is your chance to get ahead of the changes in energy regulations. Here is your opportunity to sit in on a real training session led by one of the top HERS Raters on the East Coast explaining in detail what you have to do while the house is being set and after in order to reach the new HERS ratings that will be required.

Rick is no stranger to modular construction having been responsible for training many builders in the fundamentals of construction at Penn College in Williamsport, PA. His extensive knowledge of what happens on the modular production lines in factories all over the Eastern US will give you an insight as to what our factories are doing right now to get ready.

He is also doing HERS testing throughout the Northeast for many builders and sees first hand what will be needed to comply with the upcoming energy regulations.

This is not a “Why should you get ready” but rather a real hands on/question answering session to prepare you for the future.

This Builder Breakfast will begin at 8:00 AM with a Meet N Greet Continental Breakfast followed by Rick Terry’s training session at 8:30 to 11:00 AM.

Cost is $59.00 per person.  CLICK HERE to register.

Seating is limited to 3 people per company.

I wish Gary a lot of success with these training sessions he is organizing for our industry. This seems like it would be a no-brainer for the factories to send as many local builders and their sales people to this one. This is the type of training our industry has been asking for. I live too far away to go to the NY training but I will be at the NJ Boot Camp. It looks like Gary is bringing his A Team to both training sessions.
