The social housing sector in France represents 5 million residential units and houses 18% of the French population.

It faces many challenges. How to adapt its existing residences to changing demographics and lifestyles? What services needs to be offered to tenants? How to break social isolation?

Batigère, a leading player in the French social housing sector, organised a series of workshops on November 9th 2017 to address these questions and discuss concrete solutions. More than 250 employees from Batigère contributed ideas.

John van Oost led two workshops on “Co-location, co-living and other emerging housing formats” and “the digital transformation of residential buildings”. He also presented how Urban Campus’ technology could be deployed in large residential portfolios.
