A Pioneer in Off-Site Construction

For more than two decades, Gerard “Gerry” McCaughey has guided home builders in making the transition from stick building to offsite construction – to provide higher-quality, more sustainable structures that also boost revenue and maximize profitability.

In promoting Fully Integrated Off-Site Solutions™ (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 also built one of the world’s first zero-carbon houses.

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.
