CE Midlands Housing Summit

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, Shakespeare Martineau, tickets for members are now FREE

In the light of the ambiguity around the ending of covid restrictions on the 21st June due to the potential impact of the Indian Covid variant, we have decided to host event online instead of in person.

The speaker list is led by Richard Twinn of Cundall (ex UKGBC) updating us on the Future Homes Standards. The Future Homes Standards will affect all those involved in the provision of housing going forward. Richard is an undoubted ‘expert’ in this field and will outline what we will all have to consider going forward.

Simon Inkson of Welsh Government will be speaking about WG’s Affordable Timber Framed Zero Carbon Housing Solution. Welsh Government has decided to build all affordable homes in Wales from 2022 in timber frame as part of their net zero commitment. Simon will outline the exciting plan to achieve this including a partnership arrangement between 11 councils and 14 timber frame manufacturers and the revolutionary procurement process to allow this to take place.

The keynote presentation will be from Colette McCann, Acting Assistant Director, Birmingham City Council. CE Midlands has a partnership arrangement to work with Birmingham City Council in helping them achieve their 2040 plan. This includes not only their net zero targets but also housing targets. Colette will outline their exciting plans to deliver the City’s affordable housing needs along with how companies may get involved in the programme.

They will be joined by Oliver Novakovic of Barratt Developments  who will outline ‘How is a major private developer going to meet the zero carbon challenge? Barratt Developments are always a trend setter in their field and what they do today others follow tomorrow. This will be a very interesting presentation offering best practice opportunities for all.

Sushma Maharaj, Energy Partner of Shakespeare Martineau, speaking about “What are some of the challenges that house builders are facing – and how can they meet these challenges going forward?”

Stewart Dalgarno from Stewart Milne Timber Systems will be discussing The Advanced Industrialised Methods for the Construction of Homes (AIMCH UK)

Richard Whittaker of Citizen Housing and Brian Maunder from Totally Modular. Richard and Brian will take us through a case study of how modular construction allowed Citizen Housing to unlock a difficult garage site in Coventry offering hope for another 400 sites across the region.

This event gives the chance for the Midlands private and affordable homes community to share best practice, influence the future agenda and network one again.
