UKIS 2018 : Housing Zone

Housebuilding is a national priority, with demand for new public and private housing at its highest ever level. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has committed to fixing the broken housing market with significant investment and changes to planning procedures, including the creation of a £2.3Bn Housing Infrastructure Fund to unlock new housing projects across the UK.

While the Prime Minister is on a personal mission to ‘fix the broken housing market’, her Government has pledged to build 300 000 new homes, alongside this comes additional requirements for supporting infrastructure – such as investment into major water and waste projects continues, including the Tideway project, which is one of the largest of its kind.


Within the Housing Zone you will hear from some of the major buying consortia in the housing sector, detailing the framework opportunities available to suppliers. Find out more about some of the major frameworks available in sectors including compliance, property maintenance, safety and security, corporate procurement, water treatment services and more. Attend sessions in the Housing Zone and learn more about how you can work with the major players in this sector.

The agenda has been confirmed and the housing zone will provide buyers vital information on major housing schemes, technologies and training.

PASS Training Consultant, Eddie Regan, will deliver procurement training designed to keep you at the forefront of public sector procurement, with a session on creating a good tender specification.

Official Housing Zone Partners include two of the UK’s largest social housing consortia Consortium Procurement, and Procurement For All, who will lead discussions on Universal Credit and Dynamic Purchasing Systems and the benefits they can bring to your organisation.

Westminster City Council will give an overview of the regeneration programmes going on in Westminster and where you can get involved. While Celtic Technologies will provide a session on developing brownfield sites and the risks.
