Roundtable – "A Kitemark for Quality?"
- Location: Howden, London
- Date: 15/10/2019
- Time: 16:30 - 18:30
The housing industry must address the quality agenda and this is relevant to funders and insurers where managing risk is increasingly a critical factor in scheme viability.
As a sector, we have to approach this issue collaboratively, identifying the behaviours and cultures that will collectively drive improvement.
Could a kitemark for quality drive and deliver this? Could some form of quality standard and certification help deliver this ambition?
The Housing Forum, together with Howden, Baily Gamer and Hawkins\Brown are calling a round table discussion with key individuals to explore and address these issues. BLP's Jeff Maxted will be attending.
