Video: Shelagh Grant Discusses Quality at the 2018 Energy Summit

17 January 2019


At a recent event, The Housing Forum partnered with long-standing members Worcester Bosch in a bid to tackle future challenges relating to quality construction and heat provision in the UK amongst housing professionals.


Featuring key speakers from across the housing and construction industry, attendees of the Housing Forum’s Energy Summit event discussed where energy might sit amongst a drive towards quality and sustainable housing and ambitious construction targets.


Shelagh Grant, CEO of The Housing Forum, comments: “Worcester Bosch has been a member of the Housing Forum for a considerable number of years, so when it came to deciding on who to partner with for this event, the company immediately sprang to mind.


“It has been a year of important announcements in this sector, not least with the setting of ambitious targets to build 300,000 new homes every year until the mid-2020s and increased funding for housing associations and local authorities. Housing and construction are complex processes involving many parties, from housebuilders and subcontractors to manufacturers and planning advisors, so events like these are crucial to demystify the current state of play and future ambitions for the sector. I believe great opportunity lies ahead for the housing and construction industries to work collaboratively in building a sustainable future.”
