England requires an estimated 345,000 new homes every year. Meanwhile, much of our existing housing stock needs to be made energy efficient, comfortable and safe. What are the models for delivering and retrofitting housing at speed? How do we ensure quality? And how do we deliver homes that respond to the needs of diverse households and different lifestyles and allow residents to live sustainable lives?

Join our live online study day, in association with Knauf Insulation, Oscar Acoustics and SIG, on May 5 to hear from experts from across the industry. Starting at 9.15am, the event will be divided into four parts­­ to allow attendees to select areas of interest as they choose. These segments will address innovative delivery models, including Modern Methods of Construction; sustainability; safety, health and well-being; and new emerging housing typologies.

Watch presentations that draw on case studies to illustrate best practice, highlight key challenges and offer practical solutions for improving the resilience, sustainability and desirability of the UK’s housing stock.
