Walker Sime to showcase commitment to healthy cities at leading real estate event

Walker Sime, the Leeds based construction consultancy, has confirmed its involvement with The UK’s Real Estate Investment & Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF) which takes place between 21-23 May 2024, in Leeds.

As a renowned construction, regeneration and infrastructure consultancy, Walker Sime has long been committed to creating lasting legacies of regeneration that positively impact society and is set to play a prominent role at this year’s event.

The event will bring together leading industry professionals and influencers, and will have a special focus on “Healthy Cities,” aligning with Walker Sime’s mission to drive sustainable urban development and community well-being.

Walker Sime has secured a centre stage spot on Wednesday 22nd May in the Rethinking Places Pavilion for a session on ‘Creating Healthy Towns and Cities’, where regeneration leaders from the public and private sectors will get together to explore how we can transform the UK’s towns and cities to create healthy places to live.

One of the highlights of the day will be a panel discussion involving Walker Sime’s new Director of Regen Delivery, Cathy Palmer. In her former role Cathy led Birkenhead’s once-in-a-generation transformation programme. She is passionate about place-based regeneration and ensuring communities are at the heart of delivery. As part of the forum she will discuss examples of investments in towns, cities, and neighbourhoods, changing behaviours and creating healthier lifestyle choices.

“We understand the profound impact that well-planned, community-focused projects can have on the fabric of society, and we look forward to sharing our insights and learning from others who are equally passionate about this mission.”

The UKREiiF event will be held in Leeds on 21-23 May 2024 and will attract inward investment, generate economic growth, and drive a more sustainable and inclusive culture within the property and construction industries.
