Direct labour, past and present: the answer to the housing crisis, construction training and low energy building?

By Robert Lyons on 4th July 2017
Date and Time: 
Thursday, July 13, 2017 - 13:30 to 17:30


The workshop is intended to assess the past history and significance of DLOs, to present inspiring contemporary examples, in particular from Glasgow and Yorkshire, and to discuss possibilities for the further development of direct labour. Today we face a severe housing crisis, the lowest level of construction training ever seen and the need for a transformation of the construction industry to meet low energy targets and address climate change. Does direct labour offer a solution?
