Meet Hydrock at UKREiiF 2024

3rd Apr 2024

Hydrock returns in force to UKREiiF 2024

Showing full support for UKREiiF 2024, will be a sizeable Hydrock delegation of over thirty people, keen to connect with clients and industry colleagues. Our Hydrock presence will comprise of senior Board members and specialists across our growing integrated engineering design, energy and sustainability consultancy.

Now in its third year, UKREiiF will return to Leeds on an even bigger scale, with an expected attendance of over 10,000 delegates, bringing together the public sector – with every core UK city and region involved – alongside Government, investors, funders, developers, housebuilders and more.

Following on from our industry leading stance on guiding the conversation around The Building Safety Act at last year's conference, Hydrock will continue to probe the issues facing decision makers across a wide range of sessions. This year, those themes centre around climate adaptation, healthcare, and nature based solutions.

Speaking of our involvement at the 3-day forum, Scott Elliott, Deputy CEO and COO at Hydrock said:

UKREiiF has definitely proved for us to be a great environment to discuss key industry challenges, opportunities and themes. We are involved in both leading and contributing to these discussions across a wide range of sessions, the common thread being the dissection of crucial issues facing the industry such as climate adaptation, estate optimisation and decarbonisation, predominantly across large estates and asset portfolios.

This year we stepped up our involvement, reflecting our confidence in the event and will host a number of panel sessions, as well as appearing on panel events sponsored by others. We can be found at the following events:
