About 10 gathered recently to get down to details for the Oklahoma Building Summit & Expo, even though the expo is five months away - Aug. 26-27.

The show expands to two days this year, which gives the gives planners a speaker/topic lineup even more widespread.

The brainstorming session spanned everything from on-demand water' to crazy mistakes builders make.

The three overall sessions will cover: construction, energy efficiency, foundations and soils, and builder-specific business topics, such and mortgage rates, OSHA, Lean construction, tort law, sales and marketing, for example.
