Cowan Architects guest on panel discussion at Property Week’s Retirement Living Conference, London, November 5th, 2019

Nigel Marcoolyn, Cowan Architect’s Director of Architecture, will be a panel guest at Property Week’s Retirement Living conference in London on November 5th.

He will be discussing the topic ‘Developing for the next generation of retirement living customers’ and joining other leading lights in the industry.  Property Week describes this one-day event as “the UK’s essential gathering for the retirement living property sector, connecting influential figures. It’s the only event in the retirement space dedicated solely to the property sector”.

Our ageing population is healthier, wealthier and more independent than previous generations. This needs to be reflected in design and planning. The panel will address how the industry should translate the needs of the next generation of retirement living customers into design? And what will the retirement living schemes of the future look like?

The conference will consider how to overcome the key challenges of delivering the essential retirement living accommodation that is desperately needed in the UK. The day will be chaired by Jeremy Porteus, CEO of the Housing Learning & Improvement Network.

Other panel members are Jamie Bunce, CEO, Inspired Villages, Nigel Saunders, Director, Pozzoni Architecture and Will Bax, CEO, Retirement Villages Group Ltd.
