Twelve local construction companies recently met with key players in GB’s housing sector, to maximise their chance of entering the supply chain of future social housing projects.

Organised by Invest NI, representatives from Wates Living Space, a leading contractor in the GB social housing sector along with Fusion 21, a procurement company for housing associations in England, discussed with the companies how their product or service could be utilised in potential contracts in GB and how to progress these opportunities.
