Build to Rent
A new set of challenges for designers and the construction sector

The new BTR industry sector represents a huge opportunity to boost the UK’s housing supply, but brings with it a number of key challenges. Over the last six months, we have explored some of these issues from the perspective of the investor, designer and tenant.

A new perspective


Focus has shifted from short-term financial gains to long term investment returns and delivering on customer experience, ensuring tenants are satisfied in their Build to Rent home.


Ensuring that the design meets rising tenant expectations whilst addressing lifetime cost.

Main contractors

Interest is growing in how Modern Methods of Construction can improve onsite productivity and speed up completion times.
