Delivering clear insight into creating sustainable communities
Every three months Smart Housing brings together housing leaders and professionals, experts, and policy makers to investigate and discuss the latest technologies and innovations that are defining the future of house building in the UK. Divided in to four sessions per event, our panel members debate and collaborate on topics such as smart home technologies, decarbonations to digital transformation.
Session 1: Intelligent Building Systems 09.30 – 10.30
Mark Arnold, Head of Technical – Thirteen Group
Andrew Gamblen, Digital Manager, Willmott Dixon Construction
Intelligent Buildings, Intelligent Homes, Building Management Systems (BMS) encompasses an enormous variety of technologies including energy management systems and building controls. This session will investigate the latest technologies and innovations that developers and builders look to insert in to new and retrofit homes.
Session 2: Retrofits: The Race to Decarbonisation 11.00 – 12.00
Cities such as London and Manchester have now set up retrofitting taskforces, to step up to the challenge of decarbonisation over the next 20 years. Millions of homes across the UK over the coming years will see upgrades to provide healthy, greener, and sustainable communities. How will we get there? This session will look to discuss the roadmap to net zero.
Session 3: Recovering our Town Centres – 13.00 – 14.00
The pandemic has seemingly laid waste to our already embattled town centres, with the local high street taking the brunt. There is now a real sense of urgency from local authorities and housing providers to build back better. Town centres are densely populated and need a ‘smart place’ approach to recover and restore the social economic heart of our towns. This session will examine action plans and assess the impact smart technology has on the road to recovery.
Session 4: Smart planning – 14.30 – 15.30
The government proposals recently announced in the Planning White Paper looks to revolutionise placemaking in England. One priority is ‘Growth Zones’, as part of the government’s pledge to build 300,000 new homes every year. What smart technologies will planners look to integrate into new and redeveloped communities? What will future smart homes be like and how will people living them benefit from the technology around them? Find out and discover new insight in this innovative session.
