How do we keep investors interested in UK property?
In order to keep investors interested in the UK property industry we need to design with the following aspects in mind:
Investors don't want to produce something that looks the same as everything else. Gone are the 1950s when we built everything quickly and to the same design.
We need to take inspiration from our predecessors with small, inexpensive yet quirky design features that are not too intrusive. Remember the Victorian era? similar but individual. Incorporate some additional features, don't just create a cheap bland box that barely brushes the regulations.
Modern cities are popping up all over the world, times are changing and technology has created a disposable lifestyle rather than 'make do and mend'. If we could think like this in terms of buildings too then we can maintain interest whilst maintaining a reputation of market leadership in building design, construction and function.
