About the Workshop:


Ensuring affordable housing projects are properly managed is extremely crucial. It is a major concern to the broad group of stakeholders ranging from the Government, developers, architects, contractors, commissioners to the public at large. It is simply not acceptable that affordable housing projects already on track are delayed or abandoned due to the lack of proper project management. Apart from the fact these homes are urgently needed, this will have a huge impact on peoples jobs, economic growth and will weaken the capacity to build homes in the future as skills in the industry are lost.

More About the Event

Why you Cannot Miss this Event:


marcus evans takes great pride in organising our 5th Annual Affordable Housing Projects large scale event scheduled from the 2nd 4th April, 2014 in Singapore. Housing the nation has always been a challenge for Governments around the world. Issues of affordable housing are vital for countries with growing population and escalating housing prices. The development of affordable housing must be jointly carried out by the Government, civil society and the private sector. In Asia, Middle East and Africa, there is huge demand for affordable housing. A lot of developers are developing low cost and affordable housing for the middle and lower income segments of the population. Governments across APAC, Middle East and Africa have also taken up various initiatives for developing properties in low cost and affordable segment. Issues and challenges in affordable housing are common to most of countries. The whole dynamic of the housing, housing nance market and issues relating to nance, land, technology, construction design and regulatory framework for effective strategies, innovative products and sustainable programs on affordable housing is what the market needs. Attend this event to examine the critical issues facing the housing industry, explore how the housing sector can grow in the context of an economic crisis and how to deliver more with less, thereby taking advantage of the unprecedented opportunities in this sector. Tailor-make your own programme by selecting from any of these streams over Day One and Day Two: Stream One Urban Renewal & Community Development Affordable housing for the low income group has become a necessity these days with a large number of migrant laborers coming to the city and adjoining areas. Given that there is no organised housing plan, most of them end up staying in slums. This makes a strong case for such homes. However due to high land costs affordable housing is moved to the suburbs of cities, hence there is a need for developers to build a community there to make it more appealing for the home buyers to purchase their houses. Developers need to build adequate infrastructure, public amenities etc. to make it more convenient for the end users. This stream will provide insights into urban renewal and community engagement to effectively implement affordable housing strategies in highly populated cities. Embrace new concepts and learn from the development of new affordable housing initiatives from emerging and existing markets. Stream Two Design, Materials & Technologies The fundamental principle which ensures that housing is cost effective and affordable is building construction technology and materials used therein. This LSE will provide a platform to showcase proven low cost construction technology, as well as, the transfer of know-how to empower the public and private sectors involved and raise the bar in the development of affordable housing projects. This stream will showcase cutting edge construction technologies and how best to incorporate them into the design and construction of affordable housing structures. Here we will also explore cost effective materials for an economically viable, sustainable and replicable construction model. Stream Three Housing Finance Unaffordability of housing and limited access to nance are limiting factors to the provision of adequate housing in the urban areas. Financial institutions are now moving towards extending the access to nancial services to the unbanked and under banked sections of society. This event will give delegates the opportunity to meet with key people from the public and private sectors alike to determine solutions and address key challenges in low cost and affordable housing shortages faced by developing countries and thereby alleviate poverty through the extension of credit to the urban and rural poor. This stream will discuss strategies to make deals viable regardless of the anticipated obstacles in the year ahead. Sessions will address the latest on what you can expect from the policymakers, updates in debt and equity nancing and creative solutions to give rms an advantage over the competition Day 3 Construction Project Management & Delivery Workshop Join our exclusive full day workshop to learn how to deliver successful affordable housing projects from inception to completion by drawing on project management
