Urbano Online Build & UWACTE

Urbano Network is London’s leading pan-sector independent business network with over 5,000 Member & Associate Companies, ranging from boutique practices and SMEs, to corporates and PLCs.

Urbano Build is one of our most vibrant business communities with its own programme of regular networking events in London aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities.

Since Urbano began in 2011, we have had a proud track record of championing opportunities for women, and our UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology & Engineering*) community helps women in Urbano member firms to develop and enhance their connections across our network.


ABOUT THIS EVENT & SPEAKER
Mary Parsons has over 25 years' experience in the development, construction and regeneration sectors. As Group Director, Place-Making & Regeneration, at People For Places, she is responsible for all large-scale projects and joint ventures.

Mary is Chair & Trustee of the Town & Country Planning Association, and a Trustee of MOBIE, the charity tht seeks to inspire young people to innovate in the design and construction of homes.

Mary is a Commisioner on the  Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission whose report, Living With Beauty, published this year puts quality design at the heart of new homes building for the UK.

Mary's presentation will focus on the key elements of that report, in particular, what the report recommends in terms of the future the role quality should play in procurement, place-making and development. She will also look at how our current planning system and structures actively discourage a focus on quality in the search for cost-savings, now and especially in the aftermath of Covid's impact on the sector.

THIS EVENT IS NOW BEING HOSTED ONLINE. WE WILL ALSO ISSUE A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE FOR YOUR CPD PURPOSES (THOSE ON FURLOUGH ARE ALLOWED TO ATTEND TRAINING EVENTS).

Speaker Presentation: The speaker presentation will run for around 45 minutes, followed by a facilitated Q&A. Running time about 75 minutes.

This will be a different event for different times but should be enjoyable and lead to lasting valuable connections for you and your business.

About our Urbano Build & UWACTE Communities
Urbano Build is one of Urbano's most vibrant business communities with its own programme of regular networking events in London aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities.

Since Urbano began in 2011, we have had a proud track record of championing opportunities for women, especially in historically male dominated industries and sectors, such as construction and engineering. To develop deeper connections between women in SMEs and larger companies: UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology & Engineering*) where women in Urbano member firms can develop and enhance their connections across our network.

Around 50% of an Urbano Build event audience are female, as are 80% of all Urbano speakers.
