We had a great time at Bisnow London where our MD Jeff Bearcroft took to the stage to host the panel of speakers talking about how to build ‘a killer BTR team’ along with Tracy Peacock, Director of BTR Native, Jennifer Smith Managing Director of Greystar, Jeremy Fletcher, COO of Tipi and Matt Halfpenny, MD of Property Recruitment.
Sir David Higgins, who was knighted in 2011 for his services to regeneration kicked off the day’s proceedings, which included various tours in and around Wembley Park. Also demonstrating the incredible £600m regeneration work being done by Sisk Contractors for developers Quintain, including the Arena, Hilton Hotel, 7000 new homes and 7-acre park.
Topics covered new trends in development, fit-out, delivery and design, property optimisation, lessons learned from data and tech to make better BTR decisions and much more.
Lunch was at Boxpark Wembley, with a great selection from 20 delicious street food stalls and also a really cool space to bring the community together. During lunch there were a series of Ted-style talks from Roger Wade, CEO of Boxpark, Charles Armstrong, Founder of Trampery creative workspace and housing and mark Kellet, Group CEO, Velocity1.
Jeff Bearcroft said: “This was our first year exhibiting at Bisnow London and we found it to be really beneficial in meeting new industry contacts as well as it being a very informative about the current state and future of the BTR market.
“What’s been really interesting for me is in seeing the scale and speed of development that is taking place in the BTR sector and how the relentless focus on great customer service is leading the way in making it a success.”
