Housing and building continue to dominate news headlines and political agendas. We are well versed in the issues and the real focus must now be how to address them. Constructive brings together the wider sector, and Government to move beyond words and into practical actions for change.
With housing the debate often begins with the question of what is a decent home? And how can we prioritise the many competing demands? Quality homes, emissions reduction, healthy homes, modern living, affordability, and the effects of climate change are all important dimensions but more often than not one dimension is highlighted at the expense of all the others. How do we help the country – from the public all the way to policy-makers – better understand the trade-offs and priorities that we really need, those that will make the biggest difference?
Market conditions are ever changing and challenging for the sector. Issues like procurement, risk management and climate change are still upon us.
