RIBA Guerrilla Tactics 2019: Understanding the Developer Mindset

05 November 10:00 - 18:15
Organized by: RIBA Practice
Venue: RIBA
Royal Institute of British Architects
66 Portland Place

This year's Guerrilla Tactics is focused around Understanding the Developer Mindset: Winning Business and Creating Opportunities.


Conference Day: Tuesday 5 November


Delegates will gain a better understanding of the development process, fresh insight into where value comes from and the ability to use this knowledge to better service clients, and eventually for those so inclined, the capacity to create a new income stream.


Small sites abound up and down the country and now there is the challenge of what to do with the high street. They all share the same problem – it’s not efficient for large developers to take these sites on and councils are under-resourced. Architects have always been adept at spotting the potential of awkward sites but rarely are they able to extract value from the development activity - funding, building, and selling - in an efficient way because these are not skills they are taught.
