For years, Quadrant Homes built houses pretty much the way everyone else does: It put up a house and waited for it to sell.

Now Quadrant, the region's 10th-largest homebuilder, has turned that formula on its head.

These days, the company waits for a home to sell, then builds it.

"We build houses the way Boeing builds airplanes," said Quadrant vice president Peter Orser. "We don't begin the manufacturing process until we have the order in hand."
