SEBC Offers Springboard For the Building Rebound

All signs are pointing to a steady recovery of the home building and construction industries in the South and the builders who survived the downturn expect to build on that momentum at the 2012 Southeast Building Conference (SEBC).

 Sponsored the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA), the 35th (?) annual event unfolds July 26-28, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando with 5,000-plus expected to attend.

“It’s where I go to get motivated,” said Tallahassee, FL builder Stan Derzypolski of 3 Rivers Construction. “Surviving in the building business today is tough. But SEBC connects me to other builders and exhibitors in a way that’s very inspiring and empowering.”

Over 200 leading suppliers will be exhibiting the latest building industry products and services at the SEBC, which also offers delegates 60-plus educational programs, including all 14 hours of the continuing education credits contractors must obtain every two years to renew their licenses. FHBA is one of Florida’s leading continuing education providers.

In addition to exhibits and education, SEBC offers a hands-on custom home building experience through tours of the New Southern Home, built this year by Hardwick General Contracting of Orlando.

SEBC also features the day-long Leaders Advantage program that focuses on global housing issues; the Aurora Awards Dinner where design and construction professionals are honored for outstanding structures and communities; and specialized training programs on building codes and job-site safety.

This year’s SEBC partners are the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Florida Masonry Association.
