Industrialized Construction: Building for a World of 10 Billion

Mike Eggers of Project Frog discusses how to bridge the gap between housing demands and labor shortages


Demand for housing and other built structures is increasing as the world population continues to grow. At the same time, there’s a shortage of skilled labor for construction. How can we bridge the gap? Mike Eggers of Project Frog shares how industrialized construction—using digitization and automation to make the building process more like a factory—can help us shorten build times, reduce costs, and improve quality.
