01 / The future of retail

An overseas, retail-focused membership organisation has approached us to develop a bespoke course that will look into the changing world of retailing and retail real estate.

This enquiry has occurred at a time when there are real challenges in the retailing area, as our daily news frequently reminds us. It is clear that there are many issues and areas of expertise that need to be considered if we are to find solutions to the challenges faced by those involved in retail real estate.

02 / Cities, regions, nations – and the role of major sporting events

UCL’s move onto the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has generated interest in exploring the business cases needed to justify both the initial bidding and the legacies arising from the facilities and other built environment investments necessary to host major sporting events.

This is a growing area of opportunity and one fraught with challenge, as it requires careful planning, leadership and stakeholder engagement to ensure that the substantial sums invested have a positive return on investment.

03 / Off-world living

The European Space Agency is interested in the challenges and possibilities arising from creating a permanent settlement on the moon – a ‘moon village’. BREI is seeking to play a critical ‘hub’ role for UCL’s many and varied interests in this idea, which would draw on expertise from across the university.

The key driver would be to identify what would be needed to design, create, operate and live in such a moon village, but the value of investigating this area would also have more immediate benefits to those of us still intending to live on planet Earth. These include:

  • Extreme attention to efficient and effective design
  • Fully integrated and truly ‘smart’ materials and assemblies
  • How to provide a safe, secure and enjoyable environment using the least space and minimum materials.
