Rethinking social housing – design and new build

Is the social housing we are building today going to be fit for purpose in 10, 20 or 30 years' time?

Are the homes we are designing, the spaces we are creating and the technology we are embracing really going to meet the needs and expectations of future generations?

In the first of a series of events designed to make us stop and think about the future of social housing, HQN will bring together thought leaders, designers, architects and developers to explore the opportunities and challenges and showcase some of the innovative approaches to housing design and new-build that are already out there.

Brought to you in association with L&Q, the events will explore the following themes:

  • Design and new build – what are we building now and is it fit for purpose?
  • Smart home technology – from fad gadgets to game changers
  • Decarbonisation, energy efficiency and the impact of climate change
  • Understanding the housing needs of future generations
  • Design showcase – housing association and local authority new-build projects that are leading the way
  • Modern methods of construction
  • The use of space and future estate design.
