Innovation – It’s Time to Take It Home

May 24, 2016, TEDx Laval

Watch Marc Bovet’s TedX talk for his vision on the housing industry and the issues that need to be addressed in order to stop building disposable houses and start building long-lasting homes.

“Everything that surrounds us has evolved through innovation. Our cell phones are now smart phones, our cars are now computers on wheels, our news comes from social media and our newspapers are tablets. The housing industry can’t afford to ignore innovation or stay in denial mode based on the saying: we’ve always done it that way! Consumers are fed up. They want a house that will stand the test of TIME.”

–  Marc Bovet, CEO & Founder of BONE Structure
