The UK Shelter Forum 21 was held on the 17th of November 2017 in Watford and was co-hosted by BRE and CRS. The theme of the forum was “Sustainability and Resilience”. We also had the pleasure to assist to the official opening of the shelter exhibit at BRE’s innovation park. The Forum was held in commemoration of Graham Saunders.
