Periscope Homes’ CEO & Co-founder Will Beecher and Co-founder Jason Mendez joined Mission’s Scot Lindemann, Ryan Lillibridge and Brettin Leech to uncover the state of housing, the implications of a sound digital design process and the industry’s ability to meet surging demand.

What’s the first step in meeting high demand and getting people in more homes? Beecher believes it’s finding the best value-add unit in homebuilding. At Periscope Homes, that meant zeroing in on panelized construction and MEP sub-assemblies to make construction more accessible.

Later the panel targeted supposedly sacred construction traditions that could easily be abandoned, challenging the industry’s adherence to the legacy materials and methods that contribute to today’s challenges.
