Housing Summit

0800 to 1400 Friday 13th October 2017

The housing industry faces many challenges as we seek to increase output, improve quality, ensure we have the skills for the future and deliver comfortable homes built to last 150 years.

Design versus Performance, thermal bridging, fire prevention, overheating and indoor air quality are some of the many technical challenges the industry must address.  We must make full use of our wealth of knowledge, explore greater collaboration and embrace the digital revolution to build better homes for the customer.

Local House Builders Breakfast Briefing - University of Wolverhampton Science Park,  Friday 14th July 2017

The need to build more homes of all tenures remains a priority and increasingly local authorities will play a big part in this with the help of local builders.
This workshop was part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and is for SMEs based in the Black Country. The venue is Wolverhampton Business Solutions Centre, University of Wolverhampton Science Park Wolverhampton, WV10 9RT.


Wolverhampton City Council is addressing the housing crisis with a new initiative to build homes for sale and rent on land owned by the city. In partnership with Wolverhampton Homes the Council has set on a new company which will design and develop homes across the city on large and small sites to meet the needs of the community.

The council wishes to use local building materials and local house builders to ensure they maximise on the employment opportunities and ensure the money spent, where possible, stays in the local economy.
