Preparing for quality homes – our 2019 theme
This year, our theme of preparing for quality homes will cover the changing political, economic and market landscape and what that means for house building in the future. It will include factors such as the Brexit deadline in March 2019, the skills shortage, supply chain and market challenges, as well as, of course, changes to the regulatory landscape. We’ll guide you through the potential impact of these challenges and what needs to be done to prepare to build quality homes in this changing environment.
A strong feature of the future will be the increasing use of components, framed constructions and off site manufacturing which we will also explore as part of this year’s programme. Building upon feedback from last year’s Building for tomorrow events and the ongoing collaborative work we do with manufacturers, we will look at how feedback on quality can help improve standards for the future as well as meet changing regulatory requirements.
