In This PROCON Episode

In this episode 7 of the PROCON podcast, Paul is joined by Lex Brans who is the Project Leader Acceleration Housing program from Metropole Region Amsterdam discussing the topic How people, processes, and tools help with the acceleration of building houses with the MRA.

The MRA has to build 15,000 homes every year to meet the demand from new residents. All municipalities of the MRA are committed to this goal. With a lean and mean team and external parties in area development and housing production, they form an inspiring collaboration.

Paul and Lex share experiences and chat around these three key subjects.

  • How an integrated approach can help the MRA with its challenge
  • Why uniform processes and data gives insight into the production of building new houses
  • How MRA is solving the challenge to build 170.000 houses in the next 10 years (and further)

Lex shares valuable information for those interested in accelerating house building using people, processes, and tools, listen or watch this episode now.
