  • Heads Up: Future of Families

Families as we know them are changing. Today’s family is diverse with the nuclear family becoming a rare breed. A one-size fits all approach to living will not suffice. We need diverse and flexible housing choices to cater for the evolving expectations and needs of families.

But what is the best way to do this? Don’t stress we’re here to help you move forward so you can deliver the product today’s modern family wants and needs. So jump on the hover board, and discover how we can future proof housing types for families.

Following the huge success of Heads Up: Ageing in Place, which sold out, this Heads Up: Future of Families event will give you insights into the needs of the families of the future. If you’re planning your next project, you can’t afford to miss this event. You’ll get the inside word on the needs and wants of this market, which is set to have a major impact on all future residential projects.

Informed by findings from the UDIA Qld Research Foundation, proudly presented by Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ), we’ve brought together industry experts to share valuable insights. Hear firsthand from:

  • John Mainwaring, Design Managing Director, JMA Architects
  • Malcolm Aikman, Director, Urbis
  • Scott Greenwell, Research Director, Lendlease

Join us at Heads Up: Future of Families as industry experts discuss:

  • Understanding the housing expectations and needs of families.
  • How the housing needs and preferences of families are changing.
  • How we integrate appropriate housing for this group within our existing and established suburbs, offering diverse and flexible housing choices.
  • What changes are needed to our current regulatory environment to accommodate dwellings that suit the unique needs of families.
  • How do we design and deliver high density product that suits the needs of families.

Want to find out more about what the future holds for your projects? We'll explore our research findings related to millennials in a subsequent Heads Up event this year.
