Webinar: The Future Use of Spaces replay

Many housing associations are reviewing their requirements for office space as Covid-19 has irreversibly changed the dynamics of their working practices. Some organisations have paved the way to an entirely online environment while others have concerns about how this approach could impact their ability to reach all tenants. What purpose does your organisation’s office space now have? Are there more cost effective options?

As part of our #HJhousing week line-up, global real estate consultants, Knight Frank, join us in our webinar, where we discuss the impact of these challenging times on the housing sector across the UK. Caroline O’Flaherty, Partner in our Commercial Property department focuses on three aspects – considerations for future housing schemes, the impact on housing association headquarter offices and consequences for the commercial leases within asset portfolios.

Joined by Lee Elliott, Head of Global Occupier Research at Knight Frank, who looks at the future dynamics of office space and trends that are emerging in terms of what occupiers want and how the workplace is being re-imagined. Knight Frank’s Cardiff office Managing Partner, Matt Phillips, discusses the current situation within the local lettings market.

We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure.
