Join Inside Housing’s breakfast briefing in association with LHC, which will be looking at offsite construction.
Offsite construction has long been touted as a solution to many of the housing sector’s challenges. In recent years, more and more housing associations have begun to investigate its use – with some going as far as to set up offsite facilities. But, as with any major change, there are liable to be challenges along the way.
In this breakfast briefing, we will explore some of the potential risks in making greater use of offsite construction – and how they can be mitigated. Themes will include combatting the preconceptions held both by those in the sector and by some potential residents, and the need to forge new types of relationships with construction companies.
The briefing will be chaired by a senior member of the Inside Housing editorial team, alongside a range of experts within the sector, which will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience.
Taking place at Housing 2019 on Wednesday 26 June at
8.15 - 9.30am in room Central 3.
Join Inside Housing’s breakfast briefing in association with Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE), to discuss repairs services and how to ensure it delivers the right outcomes for your organisation, as direct labour organisations (DLOs) continues to rise in popularity.
The event will bring together a panel of experts to discuss in house and outsourced maintenance provision for social housing providers by exploring questions such as, does this model really offer cost savings? What are the staff recruitment and retention implications? What are the procurement inferences? Do boards and management teams agree on success? And, ultimately, how do you choose the right model?
The briefing will be chaired by Inside Housing editor Martin Hilditch and followed by questions from the audience. It promises to be an informative and thought-provoking discussion on the pros and cons of direct labour organisations.
