For nearly three decades, Gerard “Gerry” McCaughey has guided home builders in making the transition from inefficient stick building to offsite construction – to provide higher-quality, more sustainable structures that also boost revenue and maximize profitability.
In promoting a Fully Integrated Off-Site Solution™ (FIOSS™) in Europe, McCaughey grew Century Homes from a start-up operation with four employees into one of the largest off-site construction companies on that continent, with five manufacturing facilities and 700 employees. In the process, he oversaw the development of one of the world’s first zero-carbon houses, as well as the first off-site built six-story structure.
After the sale of Century Homes in 2005 for more than $100 million, McCaughey is now working “across the pond,” supporting the efforts of builders in the United States to modernize their construction processes. By leveraging his unparalleled experience, he aims to reduce builder’s risks as they gain long-term competitive advantages and build profitability.
