Editor Victoria Galligan went along to the annual Housebuilding Forum to meet HAs, builders, architects and suppliers…
The Housebuilding Forum took place at the Slate conference hall in Warwick. As part of the university campus, the striking building – a BREEAM-certified design that boasts floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto a lake – was the ideal venue to get some of the biggest names in housebuilding together.
As well as hosting expert speakers, the organisers Stable Events line up 15-minute meetings throughout the two-day event to ensure suppliers and delegates can take the time to discuss their work and potential collaborations. The speakers and delegates ranged from across the public and private sectors, and suppliers were on hand to display innovative products and services.
The challenges in delivering the homes that we want and need are complex. Our homes impact our wellbeing at every level. We are currently inviting submissions to present from those leading lights that put people at the heart of all that they do, in the design, build and delivery of homes in the UK. The philosophy behind the programme is ‘while it may be difficult we shouldn’t settle for less’. We are all well-versed in the problems so the forum will be refreshingly solutions-based.
The vibrant, interactive forum will equip you with the latest best practice in the design, build and delivery of homes that meet the needs of every demographic. It will bring together the stakeholders responsible for delivering the most innovative projects and create the perfect environment for you to network, develop valuable business connections, and explore solutions for the many design, construction and funding challenges that UK housing is facing.
