BNA PUBLICATION ‘HOW DOES THE PRIVATE INVESTOR BUILD?’
The post-Vinex-era has emerged: Private investors are creating new neighborhoods on various locations through the Netherlands. The publication ‘How does the private contractor build?’ examines these private investors.

Furthermore, the publication includes an analysis of eighty houses exemplifying the diversity this development exhumes.
