Residential Hub Event, Height of Design:

04 July 2018 , Liverpool

Using offsite manufactured solutions to deliver medium and high rise residential accommodation is now more popular than ever,  in particular for the leading developers within the UK.

With the increase in the Build to rent market forecast to continue now us a good time to invest in quality efficient and desirable accommodation.

Outside of London there is a perception that the opportunity for this type of construction is limited but as will become evident from our next residential hub meeting this may not be the case.

Liverpool presents a fantastic opportunity to showcase the use of modern methods of construction and deliver homes not only at scale but well designed and configured in the process.

Taking the “ Height of Design “ approach has the potential to add significant benefits to the landscape in and around Liverpool, creating a positive and long term legacy in its regeneration.

Buildoffsite Residential Hub has assembled an outstanding list of experienced contractors, manufacturers and suppliers to present details about the schemes that they have completed, their experiences on the way and the partnerships that have led them or are leading them to undertake some of the UK’s most iconic housing led schemes delivered to date.

Prepare to be impressed by the scale and ingenuity of the market and how far we have come in a relatively short space of time then consider how you could participate, become more involved in the sector or benefit from the extensive networking opportunity that the Buildoffsite Residential Hub event can offer its members.

BOPAS Breakfast Briefing

11 July 2018 , Lloyd's Register, 71 Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 4BS

Time                       08.30hrs – 10.30hrs

The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) has been developed by Lloyd’s Register, BuildingLifePlans (BLP), Buildoffsite, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, The Council of Mortgage Lenders and The Building Society Association to provide assurance to the lending community and valuers, that non-traditional systems of construction can be used in new house-building with total confidence and traceability, with the option of insurance cover to provide additional certainty.

BOPAS certification is available to designers manufacturers and constructors and will provide confirmation that properties, constructed using non-traditional forms of construction, will be sufficiently durable to support loans over a period of not less than 60 years. The availability of a BOPAS certification is a recognised means of managing financial and construction risk and serves as a primary gateway to mortgage finance across the sectors including institutional investors in new public and private sector housing developments, and client groups including RSLs and LAs.
