Inviting the industry to join tCn

We are pleased to say that invitation codes are now being issued to various construction industry organisations so that they can, in turn, email them to members, employees and students. With a watchful eye on quality and efficiency, invitation codes allow immediate access to tCn – The Construction Network without the need for manual approval.

Among the first are our friends at Constructing Excellence and members of CIAT – The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, while on the education side invitations will be sent to construction-related staff and students at North West Kent College and Reading College.

A big thank you so far!

We would like to thank everyone that has been involved in getting the tCn concept to this stage. It hasn’t been easy, but there is a real sense now that tCn can make a real impact on the way we communicate and share information within construction. Help us spread the word!

CIPR construction group and NCE join tCn

We welcome the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ Construction and Property Special Interest Group (CAPSIG) and Emap’s New Civil Engineer magazine to the network.  We look forward to working with both organisations helping to promote their events and share best practice within their specific fields.

Calling all potential Community managers

To keep tCn as independent and impartial as possible we are looking for proactive professionals to help manage tCn’s official sector-specific community groups (sector intelligence and project leads will be provided by Glenigan). We want online activists (eg: bloggers, group managers, etc – anyone with a passion for the subject, really!) to join with some of our journalist colleagues to encourage comment and debate. There is no minimum level of commitment required and anybody putting themselves forward will be reviewed on an individual basis. To find out more simply email us at

A central resource for research and development

tCn Articles allows organisations to submit industry-related documents including reports, surveys, white papers, case studies, guidance and press releases. Latest submissions can be found on the tCn homepage or searched in the articles section of the site. Submit any documents you feel might be relevant to

tCn on Twitter

We now have two Twitter accounts. @tCntweets is our human-powered ‘voice of tCn’, while we will also use @tCnfeeds to disseminate links to the latest articles, events and other content posted by tCn members.

Sharing social media best practice

As you may have noticed, we have revamped the look and feel of the tCn blog, which we will continue to use to talk about the latest goings-on at tCn as well as featuring posts from thought leaders within construction, including experts in marketing, PR and social media.


About The tCn Team

The tCn Blog is edited by the original founders of the concept. Its purpose is to give regular updates as to what's happening on the official site while acting as a central resource to share best practise relating to social media in construction. We collaborate with various thought leaders including marketing & pr agencies, associations, bodies and institutes.
