Our two podcast series, ‘Building Insights’ and ‘Builders’ Voices’ launched in 2021, play a pivotal role in bolstering netMAGmedia’s lineup of magazines, audience research, and white papers across its brands. ‘Building Insights’ delves into the construction industry from a variety of perspectives, offering expert insights into key topics, and partnerships with key industry sponsors. On the other hand, ‘Builders’ Voices, was developed in collaboration with the Federation of Master Builders to give a unique platform for builders and SME housebuilders to openly share views and experiences of the industry.
