Kent Construction Expo 2015
It was an early start Wednesday morning as we attended the business networking breakfast run by Kent Construction Focus Group and listened to an inspiring talk by Wayne Hemmingway on creative led regeneration.
He spoke about the first housing development he worked on in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear with Taylor Wimpey: The layout of the Wimpey/Hemingway collaboration is essentially a section of mixed terrace houses with private gardens grouped around courtyards that are interlinked with pedestrian walkways behind. They have communal facilities: sandpits, barbecues, a playground, ping pong tables and bicycle parking.
He spoke about being brave and challenging – so here are his top ten regeneration tips.
