These networks, coordinated by the regional partners, will include professionals from development agencies; planning, procurement and policy officers from local and regional government; the engineering and construction business sector; timber supply chain SMEs; designers and architects; housing associations; researchers, certification bodies, valuers, insurers and mortgage providers.
