Editor's note: The Oklahoma Building Summit registered the most participants of any summit in its six-year history - more than 400, and raised the most revenue, which will turn back into producing a bigger event/show next year, Aug. 26-27 at Cox Convention Center.
"Lean construction principles are all very practical ideas. I've been building and developing for more than 31 years now, and I have noticed and thought about these issues for years now. I think for savings, smaller-volume builders are there, whether you build 10 houses a year or 500 houses a year. I can see where the savings could go anywhere from $2,000 per house on a smaller house on up to a larger home where you could save $10,000 on a larger home."
