Careers in the Housing and Property sector vary from the design and development of neighbourhoods and their construction right through to the buying and selling, management and the maintenance of the buildings. Housing and property developments are changing in response to the challenges of climate change, the shift in working patterns, such as working from home, the ageing population and the depletion of the high street. As the population in the UK grows and changes, so does the need for new and better neighbourhood developments around the UK. In this project you will design a place where families can live affordably, with close access to transport, amenities, schools, etc; without endangering local wildlife, respecting the environment and offering good quality of life and community for all.
