'Stopping Building Failures' Set to Launch

09 May 2018



Our highly anticipated report, 'Stopping Building Failures: How a Collaborative Approach can Improve Quality and Workmanship', is set to be launched next week in London.


Co-chaired by Andy Tookey, Managing Director at Baily Garner and Nigel Ostime, Delivery Director Hawkins\Brown, the working group responsible for the report draws directly from the expertise of our member organisations - commercially successful businesses who employ thousands of staff and contribute billions to the economy and who are at the forefront of quality in housing. 


While the majority of new homes and regeneration projects are delivered to the very highest quality, it has become evident there is a lack of consistency across the sector. Pervasive reports of building failures in both new build and refurbishment and maintenance of existing stock are undermining consumer confidence. 


To this end The Housing Forum has brought together experts from across the supply chain to consider the key risks that the current method of developing and refurbishing residential property poses to truly successful outcomes, particularly for landlord clients and the well-being of their residence. 


The report will be officially launched at The Housing Forum's National Conference: Building the Future in London on Wednesday 23 May.
