Leading property and regeneration consultancy Red Loft is launching a brand-new podcast on 23rd January. Hosted by company partner Danny Sutcliffe, the six-part series will see a plethora of esteemed guests from across the housing industry join Danny to discuss the property landscape in 2023 and tackle a number of issues facing the sector today.

Having been established in April 2002 by three founding partners, the Red Loft podcast celebrates the organisation’s twentieth birthday. Each episode will offer informative and insightful conversations on how the industry has changed over the past 20 years, and examine how housing policy, modern methods of construction and changing public attitudes to housing will continue to shape the sector over the next 20 years.

The series will welcome a line-up of major names from several sectors of the industry, from private construction and architecture to local authorities and charitable Housing Associations. Each episode will centre around a core theme, covering topics that include how some of the UK’s leading Housing Associations are investing in their existing homes and services and how the industry can support and encourage more women into construction.

Guests throughout the series will include:

  • Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Group Chief Executive at L&Q
  • Paul Hackett CBE, CEO at Southern Housing
  • Andrew Waugh, Founder and Architect at Waugh Thistleton Architects
  • Helen Bunch, Executive Managing Director at Wates Residential
  • Jennifer Daothong, Executive Director for Housing, Regeneration and Public Realm at Lewisham Council
  • Claire Bennie, Director of Municipal.

Danny Sutcliffe, Partner at Red Loft and podcast host, comments: “We are delighted to be launching the Red Loft Podcast, giving us an opportunity to sit down with some of the industry’s most prominent figures and discuss the sector’s most pressing issues from MMC to inclusiveness and fire safety. Looking back on the last twenty years, it’s amazing to see how much the housing industry has changed since Red Loft was founded in 2002. The quality of delivery and design has been hugely improved – more than ever before, developers are prioritising design and architecture – and emerging new methods of construction are significantly changing the sector for the better.

We hope the podcast will become an invaluable resource for property professionals wanting to learn more about the industry and keep up to date with news from some of the sector’s biggest names.”

The Red Loft podcast will be released on 23rd January via Acast and Spotify – The Red Loft Podcast (acast.com)
