Faithful+Gould are affiliate sponsors of this year's Housing Learning and Information Network Annual Conference (HLIN), held on 24th March at the Oval Cricket Ground, London.

The theme this year is 'A Festival of Ideas', and our Head of Public Sector, Education and BIM, Terry Stocks, will be looking to inspire and provoke thought through the delivery of a workshop on Digital Solutions and their application to the evolving Extra Care market.

Our session will outline the objectives of the UK Digital Built Britain Programme...

UK Government and Local Authorities are increasingly embracing technology to deliver assets and drive better outcomes across social and recreational services. Our session will outline the objectives of the UK Digital Built Britain Programme and the benefits such approaches can deliver in asset delivery, operations and delivery of front line services in the extra care market.

Faithful+Gould's specialist team are passionate about making a difference and are keen advocates of dementia friendly construction designs in the public realm. Senior Quantity Surveyor and Dementia Friends Trainer, Leanne Owen commented "We actively encourage our clients to consider the benefits of designing buildings to consider dementia and the changing needs of individuals, considering the long term and changing needs of the building to help create flexible and adaptable spaces. We help clients understand the cost allowances required to incorporate dementia design principles, often demonstrating that a large number of design changes have limited cost implications if included from the outset."

This year marks Faithful+Gould's 70th anniversary and to celebrate this we are pledging to cycle 7,000 miles in 70 days to raise £70,000 for our elected national charity Alzheimer's Society. Delegates at HLIN can find out more by visiting our stand.
