Building Better Homes Faster - Improve & Innovate

With a national target of delivering around 300,000 new homes a year, an updated National Planning Policy Framework, potential revisions in the fire and building regulations, a focus on new construction quality, usability and the health and wellbeing of the residents; we are certainly living in some interesting times!
Tassos Kougionis - Principal Consultant – Residential, Sustainable Construction Group

Residential construction public and private stakeholders continue to demonstrate that we have the capacity, the will and the passion required as a sector to meet these high targets. But we can only do this if we all work closer together, learn from each other experiences, communicate and remain up to date with the latest developments.

This is exactly what the BSRIA residential network events offer, a platform to listen to expert speakers and learn from each other. I am delighted that throughout the year our Building Better Homes Faster series received such a positive response from the industry as a whole.

“The Building Better Homes Faster Improve & Innovate follows on the legacy of previous events and marks the end of 2018 series. I am delighted to see CIC supporting the initiative at this end of year event, no better way to highlight the importance of communicating and exchanging knowledge as a sector. I am looking forward to welcoming everyone to our event and following through with more activities planned for 2019.”

Tassos Kougionis, BSRIA – Principal Consultant – Residential

Senior speakers will cover a range of housing construction topics discuss considerations, challenges and opportunities arising from the sector’s commitment to delivering more, better quality, new homes.
