Alison Brooks, Director, gave a lecture at the YEM Building Information Centre in Istanbul to the Annual Housing Conference 2013
“Turkey needs over 500,000 housing units to be built per year. This makes “housing” a vital topic not only for the construction sector, but for Turkeys economy as a whole. It would not be wrong to say that for the last two decades the Turkish economy is highly dependent upon this industry.
Today, as building slowly begins to increase, the competitive pressure in the market often relies upon the success of projects demonstrating a unique position through branding. This years Housing Conference has more than four hundred decision-makers; investors, developers, contractors, architects, civil engineers, interior designers, designers, building-material manufacturers, academics and press members – all discussing the important issue of housing.”
