Builders are recognizing the opportunity for process innovation – risking failure, challenging business culture, and redefining operational needs. With these types of elements at play, the learning curve is steep.
A steep learning curve can mean many iterations to arrive at a successfully repeatable process, which also needs the influence and support from many different collaborators. For the BUILDER KB Home ProjeKt, the builder chose to move from a conventional build process to a prefabrication process, with a learning curve that is already delivering measurable improvements.
KB Home has built more than 2,000 homes in the Inspirada Community outside of Las Vegas where the KB Home ProjeKt: Where Tomorrow Lives will be located. Those homes have been built conventionally, each with a typical schedule of seven to 14 days.
