‘Factory-made’ homes are being advocated by national and Mayoral policy as one of the key solutions to housing demand, but how are we embedding quality within the design and manufactureprocess to ensurewe create homes, and that we’re not just meeting housing targets?

Could championing standardisation over traditional construction in fact lead to greater flexibility and diversity for the homes on offer to Londoners? Would this also give us the opportunity to improve quality, reduce maintenance costs and close the performance gap in the long-term?


NLA and RIBA host the Surface Design Show’s opening night live debate to consider these issues, following on from NLA research 'Factory-made Housing: a solution for London?'. Leading housing experts will discuss whether factory-made housing can provide Londoners with better places to live in.

This event is part of NLA’s year-long Housing Programme, covering key issues such as affordable housing, public sector land, the private rented sector, off-site manufacture, the appropriate densification of housing and how we enable small developers and custom builders.
