PropertyLab is an incubator programme tackling some of the biggest challenges and opportunities for the Housing sector. We bring change-makers from Property and PropTech together to develop solutions that produce rapid results and create long-term strategic impact, across just a series of weeks.

What we stand for.

We bring a select group of forward thinkers in social housing, residential property management and PropTech together to offer new perspectives.

We don’t just discuss, we do. We tackle issues and find ways to create practical change quickly and without big budgets or risk.

The latest thinking, tools & tech

A programme structured with lean-and-agile design thinking. We'll walk you through every step for the most impactful results.

Automating compliance.

Making compliance easy.

Our first PropertyLab session focused on uncovering opportunities to revolutionise compliance and remediation. Our research uncovered a huge need for a coordination, collaboration and transparency across operational teams and management.

The solution.

Through this sprint, we've developed a single solution, offering ‘one source of truth’ across all areas of compliance. Starting with fire safety, it will empower operational teams to execute, automate and report on their activity through one holistic platform.

Automating void works.

Easing shortages, reducing cost.

Housing is in short supply. And we know that voids turnarounds are key to reducing cost, pressure and increasing available stock. Join a cohort to share best practices. Address bottlenecks and challenge current processes to automate the voids turnarounds.

A new management solution for trade businesses.

Making management easy.

We believe that contractors and landlords can work better together. That’s why we’re focusing our next full labs programme on creating a standalone product for trade businesses. Join a cohort of landlords and trade businesses of all sizes to create the perfect product to manage your business, work orders and communication from quote to completion.
