The Future of Construction with Roger Krulak

Jackie SageFeb 2, 2023

Today I have the pleasure of speaking with Roger Krulak, CEO of Full Stack Modular.  For twelve years, Roger served as SVP of Mixed Use and Residential Development at the Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC). During that time, he was responsible for entitling and planning over 1,000 residential apartment units integrated into many of FCRC’s retail projects.

Roger spearheaded the first R&D project for modular construction at FCRC in 2008. This initiative led to the creation of FC Modular division, which focused on incorporating technology into construction workflows and using modular building systems. 

In 2016, Roger formed FullStack Modular after assembling an investment group to purchase FC Modular’s IP and facilities from FCRC. Since its founding, FullStack Modular has established itself as a first mover in using advanced technologies for building design and high-rise modular construction. Their current pipeline includes hundreds of thousands of buildable square feet for hospitality, multifamily, and student housing.

Roger received the Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award in 2014 for his work on creating a high-rise  modular process. He also sat on the International Panel of Experts for Singapore from 2014-2016. He is a frequent speaker at the country’s top design schools and universities, including MIT, Harvard, and Yale. He has been publicly recognized as a leader in innovation with multiple features in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired, and many others. 

In today’s episode we will be discussing:

  • The future of modular construction and design manufacture 
  • Successful relationships with architects
  • How modular construction will play a vital role in the future of sustainability
