Surge Homes Principals to Speak at Housing Leadership Summit


Local Entrepreneurs Invited to Share Their Successful Initiatives with Nation's Top Homebuilders


HOUSTON – (Jan. 31, 2018) – As a leader in new homebuilding concepts popular with consumers, Houston-based Surge Homes was selected to participate as part of a panel that will address key executives of the nation’s top 200 homebuilding organizations at Hanley Wood’s 2018 Housing Leadership Summit, May 14-16.

Aimed at addressing leadership issues, challenges and opportunities, this year’s conference has a specific focus, which is helping builders improve their disciplines around collaboration – both within their organizations as well as with outside partners. The success of Surge Homes in this area (recently recognized by NAHB for its Parc at Midtown development) is the product of a breakthrough approach of proposing different home types that are the result of collaboration, creative densification and homebuyer input. 

“The Surge Homes business model, construction model and knowledge of what’s important to consumers makes for a great case study on opportunity in today’s market,” said John McManus, vice president and editorial director for Hanley Wood. “Meeting the market with a compelling value proposition is what they do.”

Benoit Lemieux and Louis Conrad, chairman and president of Surge Homes, respectively, will discuss their current and future developments.

“With regard to our upcoming developments, we will explain how we are further pushing a collaborative model involving other builders and municipalities,” said Lemieux.

“Innovation is at the core of our company and is only enhanced by collaboration,” adds Conrad. “We’re excited by the opportunity to share our model with other industry leaders.”
