BMC hosted its 2020 BMC National Event, from January 13–16, at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, which brought in more than 2,000 home builders and featured more than 150 manufacturers and suppliers at the trade show portion of the event.

The theme of the event, “Innovation Delivered,” catered to builders, contractors, architects and suppliers, and sessions focused on trends and ideas moving the industry forward. Attendees were able to experience new design and construction methods enabling homes to be built better, faster, safer and greener than ever before.

“By focusing on innovation and driving a culture of continuous improvement, BMC is in a prime position to transform the industry,” said Dave Flitman, BMC president and CEO, during his opening keynote presentation. “We are committed to providing the resources needed to take a rough idea, refine it and turn it into a solution that delivers real value for our customers.”

The showroom floor featured the BMC Pop-Up House, a two-story 1,600 sq. ft. structure built in only three days using READY-FRAME, BMC's pre-cut and labeled framing package. The home also featured BMC’s millwork capabilities. Similar to a BMC Design Center, the home enabled customers to see BMC’s advanced framing and custom millwork and learn about its ability to ship products from coast-to-coast.

Attendees were also treated to tour of the Sekisui BUILDER Chōwa Concept Home. Sekisui House, the world’s largest residential homebuilder, teamed up with its wholly-owned American builder, Woodside Homes, and BMC to construct a zero-energy mass custom home in Summerlin's Ridges-Talon Ridge neighborhood. To prepare for this transformative project, the BMC team flew to Japan to train on Sekisui’s SHAWOOD, a proprietary metal joint construction system utilizing precut laminated post and beam components. BMC also supplied the doors and millwork for the house, which officially debuts at the International Builder’s Show.
