Description

Recent Government reports have indicated that the Government’s target of building 300,000 new homes to 2020 will not be met without modular building. A suggestion from a recent House of Lords debate said that pressure should be put on social housing bodies to stipulate the use of off-site manufacturing and for greater understanding more generally of the speed and efficiency of precision – engineered offsite homes. Women in Property sponsor, Ilke Homes with their factory in Knaresborough is part of the drive to design and build modular homes which are attractive, affordable and high quality.

Ilke can install up to six homes per day, delivering in less than half the time of traditionally built houses. With their partners, Ilke Homes have a goal of delivering 2,000 precision built homes a year within two years to help tackle the UK’s chronic housing crisis.

Women in Property offers the chance for professionals to experience the future of housebuilding and understand about its financing .The UK construction industry is facing significant skills shortages. Builders of modular homes are not reliant on hard to find construction skills, you will visit the factory which has an ambition to create over 800 new manufacturing jobs , be presented with a clear picture of the opportunities within the current housing market, and of course network with other professionals from across the property sector.

Guest speaker Dr Claire Handby, CIOB Chartered Member, will be speaking about The Value of Construction, and it's impact on the economy, employment market, and role of construction in local regions. Claire is a Director at Deloitte (UK) and a key leader in Regional Real Estate, Infrastructure and Capital Projects. For two decades she has worked with both public and private businesses, sectors have included Real Estate, Transport, Infrastructure/Construction, Local Government, Health, Finance and Utilities.
