Event: Alternative Models for New Housing

MAY 12

Alternative Models for New Housing
Winkworth Sherwood, Minerva House, 5 Montague Close, London SE1 9BB.


The UK is struggling to build homes of sufficient quantity, and quality; low-energy, healthy and comfortable. This event explores the alternative models in the market such as custom-build, community land trusts and shared economy housing; and different delivery methods such as modular and off-site manufacturing. The choice is varied and suits small and large scale visions, all of which have the scope to increase the quality and quantity of new homes.
