The Scottish Government’s 50,000 affordable homes target is at the forefront of the minds of everyone working for housing associations, especially those responsible for developing new homes. While the target is a welcome boost to the sector, and will help to meet outstanding need, it is also a real challenge to increase the pace of delivery after a downturn.
Calum Murray, Director of CCG (Scotland) which has developed a number of affordable housing projects using offsite construction, will talk about the challenge and the potential of companies using offsite construction techniques to increase delivery. Calum will talk from the experience of CCG as a contractor but will also discuss the work of the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre to support Scottish companies delivering homes through offsite construction.
There will be also be an opportunity for a discussion on the issues and for attendees to network, raise issues with colleagues and share ideas.
