CRL is delighted to announce that it will be exhibiting at Housing 2016 for the first time, as we engage and connect with housing associations at the biggest event in the social housing calendar.

There is no doubt that this year is going to be a huge year for housing and the conference will explore many of the biggest questions the industry is facing and identify the solutions that can help make a difference.

CRL will be bursting onto the scene making its debut at this year’s conference, organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing and attended by more than 8,000 delegates over three days at Manchester Central from 28 – 30 June.

Housing 2016 is the biggest opportunity to meet the whole value chain in social housing, with more than 300 exhibitors and some of the leading architects, advisors, funders and PRS businesses. CRL will be in good company as it joins housing professionals, contractors and developers who work with registered social landlords at the conferences and exhibitions.

Hear from the leading minds in housing

It also provides a platform to hear from the leading minds in housing including Brandon Lewis, Minister of State for Housing and Planning; Sir Howard Bernstein, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council; Trudi Elliott, Chief Executive of RTPI; and David Orr, Chief Executive of National Housing Federation. For the full programme of speakers see the conference highlights.

Come and visit CRL at stand B3 in the main exhibition hall. Here our team of specialists will be on hand to answer your construction insurance questions and support you through your house building process.

Steve Mansour, CEO of CRL, said: “Housing 2016 provides CRL with a fantastic opportunity to connect with existing clients and make new connections. This will be our first visit to the exhibition and we look forward to talking to people from the sector about how we work and how we can support housing associations and their contractors on their house building programmes.

“Housing associations have an important part to play in helping achieve the one million homes target. CRL is keen to ensure appropriate construction insurance arrangements are taken care of so social landlords and developers can concentrate on the job of building new homes with the security that their new homes have the appropriate level of cover.”

Ideas Exchange

We are also sharing the platform with Capita Building Standards, a national provider of building control services, for a knowledge sharing session in the Ideas Exchange at 1pm on Thursday 30th June. More details of our session will follow but in partnership we’ll deliver a session packed with practical tips and innovative solutions that could work for your organisation.

Earlier this year Capita’s building standards agreed to share information with CRL through their client portal to provide a streamlined approach to building regulations and warranty services for their joint  public and private sector clients.

The portal provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for building regulation and warranty services that revolutionises the building standards procedure. It provides all clients with access to building standards related services, offering complete transparency of the building regulations application and inspection process.  This enables clients to monitor progress of their applications from submission through to the completion of their project.

CRL and Capita will be hosting an ideas session that covers how building control and warranties can work together for the benefit of housing associations.

Steve added: “We are delighted to be joining forces with the Capita Building Standards team to present a knowledge sharing and thought provoking Ideas Exchange.

“Watch this space as very soon we will be announcing further details about our session which will be a must for housing and construction professionals who are tasked with securing construction insurance for your new build ventures.”

Don’t forget to drop by and see CRL at stand B3 at Housing 2016. We look forward to seeing you there.
