Having attended a Build to Rent (BTR) conference in Sydney early in 2018, we were eager to understand how the market had progressed over the past 18 months. With extensive BTR knowledge through our UK Alliance partners Ryder Architecture, we took the opportunity to deliver a workshop on day two of this year’s Criterion BTR conference at the Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne. To ensure we hit the mark we seconded Andrew Costa, a Partner at Ryder Architecture, from their London studio. Andrew has a wealth of knowledge in this sector, having delivered over 3,000 apartments in the UK BTR to sector during the past few years and with another 3,000 on the drawing board.
