Get set to win work in the housing sector

Published:  25 January, 2010

LONDON: Do you want to win work in the housing sector? The Chartered Institute of Marketing Construction Interest Group's latest seminar on 10 February...

is designed to give suppliers to the public and private housing sectors insights into how they can develop these markets.


In 2010, the housing market is one of the few sectors in the construction industry which will show any sign of recovery, CIMCIG stated. "But it is a very different market to that of the good old days of 2007. This seminar will brief you on the state of the market, the key influencers, the role the supply channel can play and what the public and private sector developer is looking for from their supply channel. Attending will put you in a strong position to move your business forward in this sector," said the Institute.

Among the presentations will be the State of the market by John Stewart, economist, Homebuilders' Federation; Ongoing Refurbishment and Maintenance by Julie Adkin, managing director, Focal Research; the importance of Design by Niall Cairns, director, Assael Architecture; Understanding sustainable communities by an HCA representative; Energy Efficiency by Neil Jefferson of the Zero Carbon Hub and Priorities in the Private Sector.
