STA Workshop: How we will deliver 20,000 homes in the lifetime of the current Welsh Government

30th January 2018 at Novotel, Schooner Way, Atlantic Wharf, , Cardiff CF10 4RT

This workshop is aimed at members of the STA, Community Housing Cymru Group members and their supply chain. We will discuss a collaborative strategy to enable us to achieve the increased housing delivery targets set by Welsh Government. The STA has recently commissioned an Annual Survey of UK Structural Timber Markets report which indicates there is capacity to significantly increase the number of timber frame homes we manufacture and erect in Wales. However, in order to do this we need to consider key factors such as; improvement of procurement processes, addressing the skills shortages and the opportunity presented by offsite manufacturing methods to name a few. This session will seek to agree a direction of travel, involving the entire supply chain, which will allow us to streamline the process and enable us as a sector to achieve this target.

A quicker group and a slower group, with the start times staggered accordingly. The slower group would start at 4.45am followed by the quicker group at 5.30am. Participants who wish to join the groups along the route for set distances, say 20 miles for example, are also welcomed and they can select a group and meet at a designated point. There will also be the option of a “Donation” Fun Ride for all who wish to join in the last 5 miles!

Sponsorship and Donations: 

If you are unable to participate in the ride itself but would still like to support these two worthwhile causes, we have sponsorship opportunities ranging from the cycling jerseys, support vehicles plus the start and finish line banners. For more information on these please email bob.davis@structuraltimber.co.uk
