NHMF Maintenance Conference and Exhibition
Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 January 2015Holiday Inn, Stratford Upon Avon, CV37 6YR
The conference will include plenary and workshop sessions led by speakers selected for their expertise in a particular field, and who come from a range of backgrounds which include practitioners, academics, consultants and relevant professions.
The conference will focus on the following four key themes:
Compliance - health and safety
What are landlords legally required to do? What should they do to meet good practice standards? What more could they do to reduce expenditure but remain totally compliant? With an ever growing list of areas of compliance falling under its remit, the NHMF committee has this as a top priority area for asset managers.
Customer service - repairs delivery
Speakers will consider what customers really value in a repairs service delivery. To what extent does a service need to be tailored to the needs of individuals and different tenures? What lessons can be learnt from examples in our sector, other industries and countries?
Value for money - procurement and innovation
This strand will explore the extent to which choosing the right procurement route for your organisation might deliver more service for less money. Are there new materials and innovative approaches that can reduce the cost of a repair service? Can investment in development and asset management be targeted to reduce the need for repairs?
Energy efficiency - fuel poverty
Speakers will stimulate discussion of how best to evaluate the choices available to alleviate fuel poverty, to improve the energy efficiency of properties and to source funding to make such improvements.
