Harris Associates At Housing 2022
Harris Associates had an eventful three days at Housing 2022, where they were exhibiting, giving them an opportunity to catch up with existing clients and suppliers and meet prospective new ones.
Held annually at Manchester Central Convention Centre Housing is the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference and Europe’s largest housing festival, where property professionals meet to share ideas, debate, learn and collaborate.
There was a lot to learn during the event which covered a plethora of topics: the levelling-up agenda; professionalism and skills; leadership and innovation; town-centre regeneration; sustainability and retrofitting of old housing stock, and delivery of safe, high-quality housing.
One striking learning was the huge task ahead for Greater Manchester housing associations who would collectively need to spend over £5 billion to bring the existing housing stock to net-zero by 2038 and the supply chain issues that were being faced.
It was also invaluable to join the study tour, organised by Muse and Homes England which showcased how Salford is creating a thriving, sustainable community in an area of much-needed regeneration.
Richard Stone, Head of North West Operations for Harris Associates said “This has been a great event for Harris Associates which has enabled us to speak to a lot of new people and learn about innovations which we will digest and look at ways we can incorporate some of this into our services. The turnout and atmosphere were very positive and we have had an enjoyable 3 days”
