UKAA Webinar: Building Resilient Communities – Assemble Futures case study presented by StarRez

Tuesday 3rd August


Join us on Tuesday 3rd August for a webinar presented by UKAA Key Partners StarRez.

All of us, on some level, need support. This was highlighted by the events of the past year, when we all watched as our systems and bureaucracies, these invisible infrastructures that govern and coordinate our worlds, crashed under the pressure of a virus invisible to the human eye. Through this time, we noticed another invisible infrastructure strengthen in this city, and beyond – that of citizens coming together to respond to, utilise and fill the gaps to support one another.

StarRez, a leading provider of housing accommodation software solutions on the market, is holding a webinar on the 3rd August 10am BST and we are delighted to welcome Emma Telfer and Dan Moore, from Assemble Communities, to join the webinar.

Assemble is a valued StarRez customer based in Australia and have a combined experience spanning across property, construction, finance, investment, architecture, urban design, asset operations, community engagement, marketing communications and advocacy.  On the webinar,

Assemble will cover:

  • The events of the past year and how we need to rebuild the infrastructure and strengthen the city and beyond again using technology
  • Resilient communities and what the future might look like for residential housing
  • What Assemble is doing with technology operationally.

We look forward to welcoming you.
