Building Skills for the Future

‘Building Skills for the Future: A Survey of the Central London Real Estate Sector’ is a major new piece of research exploring the skills needed to future-proof Central London’s real estate industry.

The research, commissioned by London Property Alliance, (supported by the CPA and WPA NextGen committees) reveals that the sector urgently needs new skills to respond to the climate emergency, the growth of digital technology and use of data, and changing user needs. It shows that real estate businesses should be recruiting more people from outside the sector to bring about much-needed cognitive diversity and ensure decisions-makers are responsive to disruptive trends.

The report is sponsored by Buro Four, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, HB Reavis UK, Landsec, MacDonald & Company and Waterman Group; and authored by research and innovation practice Future Places Studio.
