Investigating new ways to deliver the quality and quantity of housing that Londoners need

PLACE Ladywell ©

The delivery of housing remains the biggest issue facing London’s built environment. With an average increase of almost 4,000 households each year, and a current population of 8.8 million residents, as an industry we must address the challenges this incurs and create opportunities for innovation and new thinking.  

NLA provides the capital’s leading independent forum for new ideas on the future of housing design, delivery and construction. Addressing the Mayor’s key priorities, a year-round programme brings together industry experts to explore new methods within the construction industry; how we can deliver at pace and at scale; and the types of housing Londoners want to live in.

Key themes

  • Modern methods of construction and modular manufacturing 
  • Desirable density and London’s housing EXPO
  • Multi-generational renting
  • Empowering the home owner and the community (self build and custom build) 

Current activity

In 2018, NLA investigated the role of factory methods in delivering the  housing London needs. The product of this research formed a publication, exhibition and series of events.
