We are delighted to announce that we (The Building Centre) and tCn (the Construction Network) have joined forces to form ‘The Building Centre Network’
By being built around the physical hub of events and exhibitions that is The Building Centre, and by allowing users to post their own events, the new network allows users to connect and interact with others like never before – bridging the gap between the industry’s on and offline community.
Some of the features of TBCN

John Bonning, Commercial Director of The Building Centre, commented, “For a while now we’ve been thinking about ways to offer our visitors, members and users a more interactive way to experience the events, products and research we promote.”
He added, ‘tCn were one of the first to offer industry specific social media networking and information sharing. They’ve built relationships with reputable organisations based on a common objective for the good of the industry. We’re delighted to now look at taking what they’ve already achieved to the next level”.
Founder of tCn, Ryan Briggs, was equally enthusiastic about the new venture, “It’s great to share the tCn vision with such a well-established yet forward thinking organisation.”
He went on, “The Building Centre and tCn’s combined connections represents a large percentage of professionals from many of the recognised industry bodies and trade associations. The Building Centre’s training, exhibition and event facilities give a unique opportunity for members to connect with each other around real-time activities bringing on and offline networking together. The website now has a new look and feel with complete changes to branding thanks to the team at Yechte Consulting. It’s a good start and now lets us focus on enhanced functionality for users.”
Original associate members Balfour Beatty have shown their ongoing support by renewing their involvement with the project. Anne Carrigan said, “Balfour Beatty will be working closely with the TBCN team as part of our ongoing plan to reach our target audience while promoting Balfour Beatty.”
Manufacturers subscribing to specifinder.com, can now also enjoy improved functionality from the integration, making The Building Centre a truly central resource for the whole of the built environment.
The Network is live from today and can be accessed at www.buildingcentrenetwork.co.uk
