    BUILDING QUALITY, SUSTAINABLE HOMES TO DISTINGUISH YOURSELF IN A COMPETITIVE MARKET AND MEET CUSTOMER NEEDS

    Details

    Is there a market for quality homes and developments that offer space, comfort, and low energy bills? Surveys show that consumers are willing to pay a premium to buy and rent such homes, which offer developers and housebuilders an opportunity to differentiate their product in a crowded market. 

    This conference will seek to define quality, beyond what a recent Parliamentary committee called ‘zero-defects construction’, and how that relates to sustainability. It will examine the market for quality homes, revealing why major developers are investing in sustainability. It will explore how architects, developers and contractors should design, specify and deliver homes that meet customer expectations.

    WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

    • Understand the market for quality homes
    • Gain an insight into why large developers and housebuilders invest in quality and sustainability 
    • Discover how to embed sustainability at the design stage
    • Understand what the housebuyer wants and how to meet their expectations
    • Learn about the business case for offsite construction in delivering quality and sustainability
