The Housing Quality Network Networks

The lifecycle of a property - new approaches to asset management

With housebuilders of all stripes under the cosh over the quality of new homes, the rent reduction putting a squeeze on repairs and maintenance budgets and the continuing drive for efficiency savings across all areas of housing, HQN is giving housing providers the opportunity to take stock and re-examine their whole approach to asset management.

This event will look at every aspect of the process from building the right type of property for the right customer in the right location to the effective management of the property at every stage of its life.

Our one-day masterclass will cover the following:

• Location, location, location – spotting the best opportunities for investment in the post-Brexit housing market

• Customers and lifestyles - who will be our future customers, how they influence design

• New technology – what to put in, what hasn’t worked, the latest trends

• Life cycle costing – getting the balance right between initial spend on development, fixtures etc versus on going future maintenance costs

• Managing the handover from development to management/maintenance including effective approaches to snagging and the defects period

• The importance of data and record keeping – analysing repairs spend, tailoring the programme, property MOTs

• Planned, cyclical and responsive repairs – the current trends, the efficacy of different approaches and the implications of cutting back on planned maintenance

• Making the most of new technology and IT systems – innovation and integration

• Effective asset management strategies – option appraisals and return on investment

• Working with your partners including contract management

• Future plans – modern methods of construction, factory homes, building without grant.
