Groups / Property


We need innovative solutions to our national housing crisis to find new ways to ensure everyone can live in a clean, safe, affordable and sustainable home.

Our Property group works together to ensure that the views our members inform the public debate. Where possible we engage a range of stakeholders in this area – whether the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, National Housing Federation, the Chartered Institute of Housing or Homes England. As well as housing we explore issues around commercial property and large-scale regeneration projects.

The group informs ACE’s thought-leadership in this area producing innovative yet tangible proposals to improve housing design and construction, regularly responds to government consultations, holds events and writes articles for the trade press. It also manages ACE's involvement in the APPG on Building Communities.

The group meets quarterly. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies: AECOM, Amey, Arcadis, Clancy, Hoare Lea, Hurley-Palmer-Flatt, Ramboll UK, Waterman, WSP and WYG.

The Chair is Tom Smith of WSP.
