Webinar: Affordable housing – pressures; innovations and impacts: Collaboration
The affordable housing sector has a number of policy demands placed upon it; addressing the housing crisis (delivery of a new-build pipeline) and the climate crisis (adopting net zero carbon measures) as well as maintaining homes to a "decent" standard and undertaking works required by the upcoming Building Safety legislation.
None of these policy demands are cheap or easily delivered: but there are common features to possible effective solutions: solutions that are fit for the 21st century; that improve, upskill and modernise our construction industry; and that avoid the problems created by procurement solutions based on lowest price and "a race to the bottom". In turn, such solutions adopted by the affordable housing sector must be cognisant of the impact they have on the people that live in the homes created, and the wider community.
This series runs bi-weekly, exploring different parts of a potential solution to the demands faced in the affordable housing sector, bringing together key sector experts for in-depth conversations.
The latest webinar in this series explored the essential role collaboration has in a sustainable, value-led housing solution.
Professor David Mosey discussed his extensive experience in procuring successful housing procurement underpinned by collaborative working and contracts and how collaboration can secure value and safe, quality outcomes. Adam Sanford outlined how collaboration improves client outcomes under framework agreements and long-term procurement solutions.
