America's Leading Multifamily Architects Forum
April 13-16, 2023
West Coast, USA
Multifamily architects and developers with confirmed residential projects throughout North America
BOND Multi brings together America’s Top Multifamily Architects, Developers and Vendors in one place for 3 days and 3 nights.
Picture North America’s top multifamily architects and developers, all with confirmed residential projects in one place, relaxed and ready to talk. Imagine the conversations you could have…
Shall we start with who comes?
Now consider the time, effort and expense it would take to even try to get in front of this number and calibre of decision maker and you’ll start to appreciate what’s on offer here.
When we say ‘America’s Top Multifamily Architects and Developers’, that is exactly what we deliver. And they all have confirmed residential projects or they don’t get invited.
If you haven’t attended a BOND Event before, we can forgive you if you’re a little bit cynical at this stage. Some testimonials might help. A video? Better still, ask us for last year’s supplier attendee list and talk to some of them – our attendees really are our best advert.
Previous attendees include:
Greystar Real Estate Partners
Humphreys & Partners Architects
Perkins and Will
Studio Executive Director
Vice President of Development
The Michaels Organization
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill
How it Works
The BOND Multi experience centres around a series of one-to-one meetings between multifamily architects, developers and vendors that each have selected before the event. And this is just the start: you’re all together, away from the usual distractions of multifamily projects and office environments, in a uniquely relaxed set up where you can properly get to know each other. If residential projects are important to your business, these are the people you need in your life. Because this is about relationships and connections and the collaborative possibilities that come from them.
These multifamily project leaders are taking time out of their busy schedules to meet solutions providers who can help them deliver something outstanding for their clients.
If you want to get a true understanding of the needs and aspirations of America’s residential project leaders and have some interesting solutions to discuss, you will not find a better platform.
For suppliers, it’s the best way, bar none, to win hearts and minds at the nation’s leading A&D firms.
For multifamily architects and designers, the value lies in re-connecting with peers and discovering the best solutions to your design challenges from the experts who will be your lifeline.
This is THE opportunity to meet with the top architects in the country. Relationships just keep growing.
PLEASE NOTE: This is last year’s program. Check back soon for the 2023 schedule.

Much of the existing research on resilience has highlighted the importance of social resilience –the capacity of people and communities to deal with external stresses and shocks– and how it contributes to community preparedness, disaster response, and post-disaster recovery. Socially resilient design addresses challenges arising from environmental, social, or political stresses. Effective social resilience engages stakeholders in the process. How can architects best use socially-resilient design principles to help communities?This seminar will examine case studies from affordable housing snd community facilities to identify strategies for ow spaces can be designed and organized to be both efficient and resilient.

Mass timber is often attached to the stigma of being more expensive than other building materials. Because of this, some people assume it only makes sense for one-off projects where innovation is celebrated but repeatability is not. Is this true, or do its other benefits result in overall cost efficiency? If it is true, how can we expect to build the number of new housing units needed across our country in a sustainable and affordable manner? Typical multi-family housing developments are in the range of 4-6 stories, often utilizing podium or pedestal construction with 1-2 stories of steel and concrete topped with 3-5 stories of light wood framing. Beyond these heights, building codes have historically required steel or concrete framing and, to justify the added costs of these materials, projects often go much taller. This has created a critical gap in housing developments in the range of 6-12 stories. Can mass timber multi-family projects make financial sense in the 4-6 story range, used in conjunction with light wood-frame systems? What new opportunities will the 2021 International Building Code create for mass timber housing in the 6-18 story range? What is the design process entail for integration of MEPF, fire-resistance and acoustics? This presentation will answer these questions and much more.
