HOMES 2018: ensuring a high quality standard of housing

HOMES 2018 is the premier event dedicated to the residential development, strategic asset management and procurement solutions. Housing sector professionals from housing associations, local authorities and the commercial sector will meet and discuss how to build more homes and ensure a high quality standard of housing.

At a time of widespread change and uncertainty in the housing sector, it has never been more important to attend HOMES. The Hackitt Review, the Social Housing Green Paper, Brexit and the 300,000 homes delivery target have all raised questions for housing professionals. For the housing sector to move forward, HOMES has selected over 150 expert speakers across two days and six theatres of packed content. In addition, there will be 120 exhibitors showcasing leading housing solutions that can help. Over 4,000 housing sector professionals are expected to find the answers to fixing the broken housing market together with access to some of the highest-quality content in the sector.

ASSET MANAGEMENT

HOMES’ attendees will explore the latest thinking and best practice around repairs and maintenance in the housing sector, which include strategic asset management in a post-Grenfell world, implementing the Hackitt recommendations, and the need for a review of the Decent Homes Standard.

PROCUREMENT

HOMES’ attendees will also discuss the significance of procurement in the housing industry and how it benefits housing professionals. Housing professionals will explore the methods of procurement and what works best for their organisations, achieving social value from procurement, and whether procurement stifles innovation.
