What’s next for housing construction?

In 2019 our conference focus was the current and forecasted economic position of the UK and the consequences for us and our industry.

  • Key findings from five inspirational speakers
  • Fresh ideas to transform the future of housing
  • New connections and exciting relationships formed


Robert Boughton, Group Managing Director

“We are delighted with the success of our first “What’s Next” conference which took place in January 2019.

“We brought expert speakers and 300 property professionals together in one room, to look at the challenges facing housing construction. Our speakers delivered data, insight and opinion and inspired us all to look confidently to the future of house building and the part we can play in transforming our industry.

“At Thakeham we are passionate about bringing change, about creating places for people to live, work and play – about delivering high quality housing and the infrastructure needed to support these new communities.

“We look forward to 2019 and to sharing more about our plans as the year progresses.”
