This week we have an exciting announcement to make. Tomorrow, Thursday 18th, we are going to participate in the Forta Pro Webinar titled ‘Co-Living Apartments – Modular Solutions’.

Forta Pro is a company that specialises in building ecological and sustainable modular units suitable for multiple-story facilities constructions. They have numerous projects in Northern Europe and focus on Hotels, Residential, Hospitals, Bathroom Pods, and even Student Accommodation.

Thus, thanks to our experience in the PBSA segment we have been invited to share some points of view, insights, and opinions about new shared-living solutions, especially now that the world is so heavily affected by the pandemic.

Generally speaking, there is a convergence in many aspects of shared living schemes that so far have been developed to cater to different customer bases. A number of macro trends are now part of the industry as a whole. Whether you are a student, a young professional, or simply someone that wants to enjoy life within a community of like-minded people.

When it comes to finding a place to stay, and spend our leisure or working time in, priorities are becoming more and more similar. First comes the need for health and safety measures. In the short term, everyone adopted tighter schedules for sanitisation and employed the use of screens and protections. But new developments call for innovative solutions. Then, affordability and flexibility have become crucial as well. Developers have to provide an alternative solution, in big cities where the real estate market standard is going out of reach for the average tenant, and the spaces need to suit the needs of today’s people with vastly different lifestyles.

Along with the trends already developing in the past years, in the context of the year just ended, the long hours we were forced to spend indoor, oftentimes alone at home, meant that now people have much more need for social relations. This is not possible yet, but also, social interactions do not necessarily mean being among other people in big open spaces all the time. Despite the need for secure spaces, where the safety of residents can be ensured easily, a certain degree of privacy cannot be overlooked. So how to strike the balance between, safety, social life, and privacy?

These and more will be our topics of discussion in the coming webinar. I hope to have sparked your interest in this important topic and hope to see you all tomorrow. To register check the link below.
