Virtual tour Latvian home factories

The Netherlands has a shortage of homes, mainly affordable ones. The building capacity is one of the major constraints to add enough new houses. One way to speed op production is to import factory build homes, for example from Latvia.

Latvia has a long history of off-site construction of houses. These home factories built wooden houses, mainly for export to Scandinavian countries. Together with the Latvian Wood Construction Cluster we organize a webinar to introduce three large factories that can produce for the Dutch market.

After the introduction we start a short virtual tour to three factories, to get a first impression of the possibilities. At the end of the plenary part there will be plenty of time to question the companies in three breakout rooms, where participants can talk with the factories in small groups.
