BuzzHouse: Modular construction for multifamily housing: what you need to know

Baker Tilly’s podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry

Join Don and Garrick as they interview, Baker Tilly senior manager Spencer Skinner, on a trend gaining momentum in the industry for developers: modular construction. With a primary goal of reducing construction labor costs of a project, Spencer shares how he helped a client use modular building to close a construction gap of six to eight million and reallocate the savings to other parts of the project. Spencer will also answer common questions for developers considering modular construction, including when you should consider this type of building, what components developers are responsible for, and some challenges you may face.

The hosts will also give some quick industry updates including the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) final release of their Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) requirements and Senator Wyden’s call for housing credit enhancements in the next coronavirus bill.
