Rising to the challenge

The population of London is growing at a rate unseen for more than 70 years. There is already a significant shortage of decent, affordable homes and the situation is deteriorating. The London Mayor has called for an annual programme to construct 66,000 new homes against the current record programme of round 46,000 and for 60% of these to be affordable. The big questions for this session are how can the industry respond to the challenge and how can offsite construction methods contribute to the delivery of a step-change increase in new homes across all tenure types?

There will be a welcome by His Excellency Mr Adrian O’Neill, Ambassador of Ireland
