    With the pressure on social landlords to build more homes efficiently and effectively, off-site construction is seen as a credible solution. Along with higher energy efficiency standards, and an increasing need to reduce carbon emissions and fuel poverty, many believe that building homes off-site in a factory environment is the way forward. In this session, John Skivington, LHC Director, will focus on how public sector landlords can deliver an effective solution through a pre tendered framework while developing social value from procurement and positive outcomes for their communities.

    Local Authorities have a key role in housing delivery, facilitating and driving the creation of places. There is a growing recognition of the value of developing locally appropriate and integrated solutions to address the national housing challenge, and Local Authorities are perfectly placed to fill this role. This session will focus on the role of Local Authorities in housing more broadly, setting out the key issues around demand and supply and their changing role. The session will build on the 10 recommendations from the Solace Housing Policy Paper published in December 2015, as well as the recent Solace Housing Survey.

    Since the general election the government have shown a commitment to housing-led estate regeneration. This is likely to continue under the new Prime Minister and it offers the sector a real opportunity to create new, mixed vibrant communities. So what lessons can the sector take forward from previous regeneration projects and how will this work from estate to estate.

    In order to deliver more homes the sector is going to have to adopt new methods and models of housing delivery. This could be through a variety of options, from MMC to Joint Ventures and innovative finance structures. With this in mind this session will look at what these methods and models maybe and explore whether this can be scalable.

    H+H UK have been working with SIG Roofspace to bring to market a rapid build system for housing incorporating storey height aircrete elements with cassette floors and roofs. The system has been adapted from that used extensively in the Nordic and Benelux Regions of Europe. By optimising the use of the same installers for the whole build, the system offers a cost effective solution to construct the frame of the house in a robust concrete construction. The presentation will outline the build method, the method of installation and benefits obtained from a series of case studies. The system is flexible for all types of low rise housing, but the presentation will highlight to optimise the design to achieve the most beneficial solution to produce a house, which is close to traditional construction in appearance and structure

    It may sound obvious looking back but ‘build to rent’ stars finally aligned with Brexit… As residential sales softened over the summer, developers started looking at new ways of de-risking schemes, which PRS providers such as Fizzy Living deliver through forward-funding. The incoming Mayor of London team signalled a more supportive planning framework, in particular the Discounted Market Rent provision. Local councils are warming up to PRS as a way of leasing public land, deriving an income and retaining ownership. And finally there is a wall of money chasing build to rent opportunities, much of it is long-term and takes a non-cyclical view. So you don’t need a crystal ball to realize every new development in London will soon include (at least) one PRS core as standard. 
    With 60% of Londoners predicted to be in rental by 2025, renting isn’t limited to young professionals. In fact, renting should no longer be considered a second-class choice of tenure by our industry. As property branding specialists DPP point out, the moniker ‘generation rent’ misses the point: renters are ‘consumers of space’. 
    This session will take a fresh new look at the PRS model and will explore current opportunities in planning, branding and design.
