RETROFIT

In a city like London, the creative reuse or restoration of its rich built environment heritage is a necessary and often high profile affair.

Areas such as Westminster, for example, are home to some 11,000 listed buildings while 78 per cent of the borough lies in a conversation area. Having evolved over 2,000 years, London’s unique character necessitates a nuanced approach for development to allow the city to absorb and facilitate growth whilst respecting its heritage. 

A year-round programme showcases the most sympathetic and innovative approaches taken with the capital’s many listed buildings, major areas of regeneration and the successful juxtaposition of old and new. It examines how the industry can harness London’s heritage to create attractive and financially viable schemes, and debates whether current regulations and planning procedures are supporting development and heritage concerns alike.

 

There are opportunities to become either a Champion or Supporter of this programme. To find out more about how you could get involved in the events and output across our platforms please get in touch with the Membership Team via Janette Murphy
Prices start from £3,950 + VAT for 12 month support
