One of the nation’s leading modular home builders, Ken Semler of Express Modular, was installed as the 2019 chair of the Building Systems Councils (BSC) at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. A leader in modular residential construction, Semler is serving as BSC chair after holding membership in the council for more than a decade. Semler brings a wealth of knowledge to the BSC as the company he founded 11 years ago, Express Modular, builds homes coast to coast. NAHB’s BSC represents manufacturers, builders and suppliers of modular, panelized, concrete, log and timber frame homes. The council’s primary goal is to promote the increased use of systems building through education and advocacy, and serve as a resource for NAHB members and the public. "Over the next 11 months, I hope to showcase the BSC as the housing industry's leading resource for offsite construction networking and education. BSC members represent a multitude of companies that pace the industry in building, manufacturing and supplying the systems-built housing community," said Semler. "Additionally, members of the BSC have resources available to assist the Federation's builder members in overcoming the continued labor shortages and volatile material cost that hamper the home building industry." In addition to his time with the BSC, Semler has represented the Eastern Panhandle Home Builders Association as a national director for the past three years. He is also a multi-year winner of the BSC Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design and Marketing.
