In this next instalment of our social housing webinar series exploring the issues faced by registered providers in acquiring larger development sites, we will consider some of the more widespread challenges faced post exchange of contracts and in particular, during the construction phase of a development.

Join our construction specialists Kate Onions and Laura Taylor, plus head of social housing development Joanna Lee-Mills as we move onto the next chapter of our fictitious case study concerning the development of a mixed tenure 180 unit scheme, where we will discuss some of the common construction related concerns and issues.
