The Need for Stronger, Safer Buildings in the Heartland Conference

100 North University Drive Edmond, OK 73034 Constitution Hall

If someone from a hundred years ago was suddenly transported into 2016, few things would be recognizable to them with the exception of the manner in which homes and buildings are constructed.  Remove the bricks and drywall from around the house to expose the skeleton and it would be identical to the manner that was use more than 100 years ago, but why?

Has building technology and building science somehow not advanced, been overlooked and left behind? Is it impossible to build homes and buildings that can survive destructive weather patterns, wildfires, floods and earthquakes? Is it even possible to build homes and buildings that won’t rot, rapidly deteriorate, harbor insects, rodents and promote the growth of mold and mildew inside the walls?

Come spend the morning with us and learn modern building methods and materials that even many builders may not yet be aware of. Building technology has made huge strides in the last few decades that are unfortunately being ignored and unused by the greater majority within the building community. From Builders to Bankers and everyone in between, come spend just 4 short hours to learn how to produce homes and buildings that can survive the Heartland of America’s unique and sometimes harsh environment.
