Epwin Group PLC (LON:EPWN), the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of PVC-U windows, doors and fascia systems, has asked architects and specifiers what’s driving change in UK housing design? And how are these factors impacting on the way homes look and perform for their residents?
Building for the Future tackles these questions, combining the results of a survey of UK’s architects with in-depth interviews and desktop research.
What has emerged are nine key themes driving change in the way our homes look and perform. A short summary of each of these themes is available online, however the full Building for the Future research paper can be downloaded by [clicking here].
Sharn Samra, Marketing Director at Epwin Group, said: “As a business we’ve placed a focus on product innovation and meeting the ever-evolving needs of our market and customers.
Keeping one eye on the future has helped us to become the successful business we are today, and we are always looking for ways that we can learn more about the market and meeting our customer’s needs.
As such, it’s important that we’re not only looking to the future and understanding trends that are affecting design, but also evaluating the impact of these trends on the built environment. That way we are able to develop products which will help architects meet the challenges that lie ahead.
Building for the Future has unearthed some insightful trends affecting housing design, furthermore the feedback we’ve received is that this research has been conducted at a pertinent time, with many architects attempting to manage and make sense of conflicting influential factors.
