"I have a lot of time for Urbano Build network. They have a philosophy of "exchanging value" that I find rather empowering. Urbano Network is a facilitating vehicle, brokering opportunities for smaller companies to get involved, both with each other, and with larger partners. They champion quality suppliers, especially in areas such as BIM, design and new technologies." 
Jackie Sadek, CEO - UK Regeneration
