This episode is all about efficiency: build to rent is one of the fastest growing asset classes in real estate, so enabling efficiency in technology, sustainability and people is mission critical.

My next guest offers expert insight on how we approach creating an efficient development from concept to launch and achieve mission accomplished. Alastair Mullens, Managing Director of Vertus at Canary Wharf Group, joined Canary Wharf Group in 2018 to setup their build to rent operations in preparation for their first three developments at Canary Wharf.

Prior to this Alastair spent 9 years with Hamptons International and Countrywide, where he worked across various residential led roles in London and Asia. His final role at Countrywide was working on the delivery of two BtR assets in the North-west; The Cargo Building in Liverpool and Pomona Wharf in Manchester.
