Measuring social value has become a vital part of communicating and committing to the creation of social value across the development lifecycle. During this session, participants will explore what measuring social value currently looks like for the sector. Taking insights from UKGBC’s recently published guide; Delivering Social Value – Measurement, participants will gain an understanding on when it is useful to measure social value across the lifecycle of a development, the common measurement approaches, and the principles that UKGBC have set out for measuring the social value of buildings and places. They will then have the chance to put knowledge into practice, with the delivery partner Envoy Partnership leading them through a worked example of measuring social value on a sample project.

Anyone interested in measuring the social value of the built environment.  

Why attend

Social value has rightly become one of the cornerstones of responsible business within the built environment industry, and over the past few years, we have been delighted to see an increasing number of businesses measuring the benefits that they are bringing to their local communities.  

Yet the options for measuring social value is a complex and sometimes baffling landscape for the industry to navigate. This session is designed to help you cut through the noise around social value measurement and try out simple techniques that you can use on your own work.
