  • Case Study
    Living in the city, affordably
    As steep prices drive households out of inner London, one housing association has been thinking outside the box to deliver affordable homes in one of the capital’s priciest areas. HMM reports on a new affordable and sustainable scheme in Islington.
  • Bathroom Refurbishment
    Towards an accessible and inclusive future
    Adapting bathrooms to the needs of an ageing population should be seen as a top priority, explains James Dadd of AKW.
  • Fire & Smoke Protection
    Don’t leave it ‘til the heat is on
    Landlords shouldn’t firefight unforeseen problems when it comes to fire risk prevention but instead keep the focus on long-term solutions, according to Steve Martin of the Electrical Contractors’ Association.
  • Floors & Flooring
    Getting your property covered
    Floors in social and privated rented homes must meet a wide range of needs. Peter Kelsey of Designer Contracts advises on specifying safe and durable floor coverings.
  • Heating & Renewable Energy
    Green from the ground up
    Households have seen their bills slashed as a result of adopting sustainable heating solutions. Simon Lomax of Kensa Heating explains how the firm helped to harness funding schemes to deliver a big change at several housing associations.
  • Water & Air Quality
    Clearing the air
    The NHS is spending £900m a year on asthma care as poor air quality mars millions of lives. Andy Makin of EnviroVent explains how ventilation issues in the home could be a root cause.
  • Water & Air Quality
    A way through the Legionella minefield
    Water hygiene compliance is a headache for landlords, with many having only limited experience, but it’s crucial to get it right. James Homard provides a guide to the pitfalls and how to avoid them.
