The Future of Public Sector Property and Estates Conference and Exhibition
The Future of Property and Estates Conference and Exhibition, 2015, provides delegates with the opportunity to receive a vision for rationalising and transforming their organisation’s property and estate.
At the conference, you’ll examine leading best practice case studies that deliver practical insights into effective methods for securing cost reductions and modernising public sector workplaces. You’ll benefit from a vision for an overall more efficient estate that saves you money and offers a modern working environment.
The conference will explore how a modern, fit-for-purpose, and efficient core estate, which provides value for money for the taxpayer, increases sustainability and enables improvements in the way the organisations work.

Many organisations have ambitions to create an efficient, fit-for-purpose, and sustainable estate, which delivers value for money and facilitates flexible working. A key priority for many in these advanced technological times remains a reduction in the costs of estates through effective management.
Effective management of public sector estates presents a significant opportunity to increase efficiency, secure considerable savings and create modern places of work. To achieve this, a culture of mobile working and technology must be embraced to enable all workforces to operate remotely to drive efficiency and deliver improvements.
Accelerating savings and driving better performance from the public sector estate will be a key battleground in the lead up to 2015’s general election. Parties will attempt to demonstrate how they are going to improve public sector efficiency and effectiveness for the public good.
The UK’s largest landowner is the Government, with its public sector estate valued at £370 billion (the running costs for this estate are around £25 billion a year). In an attempt to create a more efficient, fit-for-purpose and sustainable estate, last June the Coalition published The One Public Estate Programme. The programme established pilot projects between central and local government to encourage efficiencies from estates across the public sector.
The programme is estimated to have saved £21m in its first year. According to recent published figures, sales of buildings that are now unoccupied following a rationalisation of the public sector estate could raise as much as £88m in capital receipts. The scheme, which is funded by the Cabinet Office's Government Property Unit and delivered by the Local Government Association, will now be expanded further.
