Guests at this year’s UK Construction Week can look forward to hearing how the industry plans to nurture the rebirth in social housing.
The show’s Development and Regeneration Hub is ideal for those who want to tackle this topic, which is especially pertinent after the government announcement to pledge an extra £2bn towards social housing.
Guest speakers include Mark Jones from the National House Building Council (NHBC), Ayo Allu, Chairman of The Chartered Institute of Building, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital CIC’s Edward Rowberry, Paul Smith from Bristol City Council, Angharad Palmer of Pocket Living, and Simon Underwood from Elements Europe.
With this plethora of expertise on offer, there is a wealth of experience and insight ready to be had at this session.
In light of the Grenfell Tower disaster, UK Construction Week has put together a free and comprehensive CPD programme that will tackle issues surrounding building quality, safety and fire prevention.
Key topics up for discussion will be Flammable Building Materials, Building Regulations, Fire Prevention, Improving Safety through technology, as well as Health & Safety.
These unbiased and factual workshops will give visitors the opportunity to both broaden and share their knowledge, whilst valuable questions are put to industry experts.
Full timetables of the CPD workshops can be viewed on the UK Construction Week website here: http://www.ukconstructionweek.com/site/building-safety
