Achieving set housing objectives using traditional construction methods is a challenge for all of those involved in the public housing sector. The current trajectory shows that by 2030 there will be a shortage of around two million homes in the UK – assuming factors such as population growth remain the same. It is evident that in order to address demand, which anyone involved in the sector will know, is rising at an alarming rate – the industry will have to build better homes at a faster pace. In order to help combat the current shortfalls, innovative offsite methods of construction must be adopted to some extent.
The Explore Offsite Housing conference and exhibition is a two day event taking place on 23 & 24 March 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham. As this event is highly relevant to those in the social housing sector and we understand your budgets are constrained, we would like to offer you a discount. Tickets originally priced at £125+vat for one day and £225+vat for both days have been reduced to £95+vat for a one day ticket and £165+vat for both days – this offer is only open for those in the public sector. Tickets include; entry to the conference and exhibition, car parking, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
Offsite construction is regarded as a practical and sustainable solution for tackling the housing shortfall and the skills crisis. Pre-building homes in a factory setting would decrease the environmental risk factors of building onsite and enable the production of economically viable homes to be built and delivered at a much faster rate. The construction of a house maximising offsite technology typically takes four to six weeks, which is nearly a quarter of the time taken by traditional methods.
Explore Offsite Housing is a unique opportunity to hear direct from the industry innovators, network and discover how offsite technologies can offer benefits to social landlords and their tenants.
With an outstanding line-up of industry figures confirmed to share their expertise over the two days, this combined conference and exhibition is an essential event for any professional looking to delve a little deeper into the most innovative and promising solution in UK construction.
