ABOUT URBANO BUILD

Urbano Build's programme is a co-ordinated event programme and network for architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers, innovators, landscapers and other sector professionals to connect, gather information, create associations and alliances, and build a community based on mutual encouragement and sharing market knowledge to help their businesses survive and thrive.  Our programme also supports member events during MIPIM (the world's leading property exhibition), Clerkenwell Design Week and London Festival of Architecture.

Our Urbano Build speaker programme has a proud track record of exploring and championing issues affecting the sector, often before they become mainstream, and often from a stand-point of finding opportunities for smaller firms to work with larger ones as we feel both benefit. This includes diversity, sustainability, new technologies and their usage, such as BIM and VR, accessibility, environmental, BREEAM, supply chain transparency, site safety, workplace and wellbeing, design, modern materials, M2M/IOT and crowdfunding. 

Previous speakers at Urbano Build have included RIBA’s current and previous Presidents - Ben Derbyshire (September 2017), Jane Duncan and Stephen Hodder, Kevin McCloud (Grand Designs), George Clarke (Restoration Man), Marc Vlessing (Pocket Living), Wayne Hemingway, Loyd Grossman, David Hancock (Government Lead on Construction), senior figures in organisations like CEBR, BRE and CABE, and from leading UK construction companies such as Arup, Laing O’Rourke, Mace Group, and David Philp and Mark Bew (BIM Team at the Cabinet Office).  

Happily and typically, an Urbano Build event audience is usually around 50% female.

Non-member companies are welcome to book and send representatives to a maximum of TWO Urbano events in total, including Urbano Build events before needing to join and experience the full benefits of membership. 

Urbano Network is proudly pan-sector, linking companies and individuals from different sizes and sectors of business. Membership of Urbano Network gives you and your business access to ALL Urbano events including our networking lunches and free places at member evening events, along with our unique online networking tools and weekly Tender Opportunities Notices

Jackie Sadek, CEO of UK Regeneration, on Urbano:

"I found I was ranting and raving in a very unclever way again yesterday morning, at some ungodly hour in Hatton Garden, as I addressed the Urbano Build network about my mission to kick-start a real step-change in regeneration. 

Now, I may grumble about getting up early for these things, but I always find time for the Urbano Network. They have a philosophy of "exchanging value" that I find rather empowering.

Urbano, run by the redoubtable Mark Herring, offers a safe facilitating vehicle brokering for opportunities for smaller companies to get involved, both with each other, and with larger partners. They champion the cause of the smaller, quality suppliers, especially in areas such as BIM, design and new technologies.  

I always learn something of real value when I'm with them.  And they're entrepreneurs, so they're a creative and energising lot to be with. Community building with businesses in economic partnerships, through our work and events and even online (steady now) is a key part of the UKR journey, of course. And the Urbano entrepreneurs certainly seemed to like the UKR business model.

I found myself among friends, despite (or perhaps because of) all my ranting.  I was asked a number of fascinating questions (and some more off the wall, such as: was I the next Kevin McLeod?) by a group of people who were thoroughly engaged."
