Learn the current status quo system for the luxury building process. This current process is missing the key component of technology planning and design in the early stages of planning. Hear about some headaches that this can create for everyone involved in the building process. Progressive homebuilders recognize tech is in demand among luxury buyers, but it can only be delivered with the requisite quality if addressed early and professionally. Lux builders and their architect and designer partners must explore needs, wants and features with clients during initial home ideation and then design and engineer tech into home plans as an element integral with structures, finishes and mechanical and electrical systems. This session will walk through successful collaborations among builders, architects, designers and tech integrators and put forward a set of principals you can use to develop your own approach.
