Social Infrastructure

Thursday 11 May

AluK Design Studio, 5-11 Worship Street, London EC2A 2AB Map...


Strong social infrastructure helps cultivate strong communities and harness a city’s resilience. Schools, hospitals, social care, museums underpin a city’s overall ‘performance’. How can we ensure social infrastructure is properly funded? How can we ensure what is constructed is what is needed? What can built environment professions do, collectively, to support delivery of schools, hospitals and museums/galleries? What are the key challenges we face?

Join us to discuss how government and the industry can better create strategies to support and sustain social infrastructure in our cities. 

Panellists include:

Peter Head, Chair, founder & CEO, The Ecological Sequestration Trust

Carol Lelliot, partner, Nicholas Hare Architects

Michele Pasca di Magliano, associate director, Zaha Hadid Architects

Andrew Neill, director, Infrastructure Finance, PPP/Social Infrastructure team, Investec Bank plc
