Creating the right type of spaces for London’s diverse workforce

London is a global powerhouse of commerce — with particular strengths in finance, tech, media and the service industry — yet this status is being threatened by growing pressures on land, market uncertainty following the EU referendum vote, and rising business rates. The capital is suffering from a lack of affordable workspace, so how do we ensure development is balanced to create vibrant mixed-use neighbourhoods for workers and residents? Are we providing the right types of workplaces in the right places, and are they flexible enough to adapt to future needs? 

This year-round programme explores the future for integrating industrial, commercial and affordable workplaces by bringing together key experts to explore the scope for co-location, attracting and retaining talent, and making the best use of land. 

KEY THEMES 
  • Maximising remaining industrial land: factory design, servicing and the city 
  • Workspaces: variety, land, affordability, wet/dry labs, co-working 
  • Impact of Brexit
