Chartered Institute of Housing Conference

This week Martec Engineering were pleased to attend this years Chartered Institute of Housing Conference in Manchester. The weather was magnificent and fortunately the Air Conditioning within the Convention Complex was running well.

The event examined the biggest challenges facing the sector and featured keynote addresses and panels from government officials and leaders in the housing sector.

The key themes of the conference included:

  • The future of building safety
  • Rethinking social housing: Understanding its role and purpose
  • Making affordability work locally Reducing homelessness
  • Delivering for residents and greater engagement
  • Promoting greater inclusion and diversity in the sector
  • The future of regulation and awaiting the Green Paper
  • Quality of housing and placemaking

The event also gave us the opportunity to liaise with delegates and discuss our 120 minute Fire Rated Bin Hopper which has passed strict third party test conditions at 2 hours 12 minutes and 37 seconds. The product has already been installed within High Rise Housing Stock around Scotland and we look forward to expanding this into areas such as Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff and London.

The subject of Fire loomed large over the event and we at Martec Engineering will continue to work with our Facility Management partners, Housing Associations and Local Authorities in order to bring practical solutions and ensure Tenant safety is at the core of what we do.

Particular mention to Jim Strang the current CIH President and Chief Executive of Parkhead Housing Association who shared some powerful thoughts on the role for men in the safety of women within society. As requested we are happy to support the work of Women's Aid  via the link.
