Please join the ULI UK Residential Council for an exclusive insight into the new “ULI Best Practice Guide on Build to Rent” for design, development and management of build-to-rent homes in the UK.

Since August 2013 a Steering Group formed of ULI UK Residential Council members have been working to develop the Guide, which is jointly sponsored by ULI UK and the Government’s Private Rented Sector (PRS) Taskforce.

This half-day conference will be chaired by Nick Jopling, Chair of the ULI UK Residential Council and Executive Director at Grainger PLC, and feature expert panels of Steering Group members and independent industry leaders.

The Guide has been developed in response to the increasing demand for accurate, unbiased information in the UK residential sector around the potential for an expanded, scalable and high-quality PRS market. It aims to identify the key points of difference between property that is built to rent and property that is built for private sale. It is hoped that the Guide will become a useful reference tool and benchmark for everyone involved in the design, delivery and ownership of PRS property, as valuable as the BCO Specification Guide is to the office sector.

Copies of the Guide will be available to purchase, hot off the press, priced at £45 for ULI members or Public Sector and £95 for non-ULI members.

If you are not able to attend the Launch, you can order your copy of the Guide to be posted to you by following the ‘Guide Order Form’ link below.
