Haleys and Forum for the Built Environment (fbe)

30 March 2017

March has been a busy month for the leading independent built environment networking organisation, Forum for the Built Environment (fbe). The organisation hosted a number of events throughout the region.  Haleys Tim Haley and Phil Hartley are members of fbe and both attended Universities and Development – What Can We Learn?’  which was held at Lancaster University today (30th March).

The fbe focuses on the built environment rather than just the property sector, bringing together a wide variety of professionals. It has over 2,000 members nationwide coming from diverse backgrounds including multinational construction companies, cost consultants, architects and designers, property developers, engineers, planners and consultants, legal & financial specialists and other service professionals.

Today’s event focused on the ongoing development and future proposals for the campus of Lancaster University. The University is one of the top ten universities in the Country and is ranked in the top 1% in the world.

Speaker Jason Homan focused on the University, whilst Paul McGarry spoke about leadership in the Construction Industry.

Earlier in the month (24th March) Tim Haley and Phil Hartley attended fbe Manchester’s annual event, ‘The Agent’s Perspective’ which brings together a number of active agents in the City, and speakers consider the property market, growth sectors and current demand. Speakers were drawn from Savills, Colliers International UK and Cushman & Wakefield.

Tim Haley said, ‘As members of fbe we receive access to a series of events throughout the year with influential speakers from the industry. There’s a welcoming social scene for networking as well as some useful technical briefings.’

Events for April include an event hosted by fbe Liverpool entitled ‘Development Opportunities Across The Wirral’. This will take place on the 6th April.

Forum for Tomorrow (fft), a splinter group of fbe aimed at young professionals, has a social event on 13th April at Manchester’s Junkyard Golf Club in Piccadilly.  Phil Hartley and Martin Cuerden will attend from Haleys.
