Meet the tCn team

All those involved with tCn actually work within various sectors of the construction industry and have come together to help people learn about using social media in the built environment. I am delighted to reveal some of the names and  faces of these people through a new ‘meet the team’ blog page and a similar website page. Have a look – maybe they can help your business in some way?

Our newest member is Chrissi McCarthy who has spent over 10 years in the construction industry as a site manager and setting-out engineer, before starting Constructing Equality. Immensely passionate about construction, especially about its effects on communities and on employees, she undertook a Masters in Promoting Equality and Managing Diversity. An Ambassador and Board Member of the Chartered Institute of Building, Chrissi has started tCn’s official community for Equality and Diversity.

(I’d also just like to say a say a huge thank-you to everyone on the tCn team, and commend them for all the work they do.)

A webinar introduction to tCn – the Construction network (coming soon)

Simply Marcomms are planning the first in a series of free online webinars to help industry people understand social media and how tCn fits with this. We will post further details as soon as they are available.

tCn members featured in Construction Manager magazine

It was good to read Geoff Wilkinson’s look at the effects of the long-awaited changes to Part L 2010.  Also interesting to read Pauley Creative‘s Pritesh Patel’s thoughts on how construction’s next generation of decision-makers are using social media to access information in different ways.

More members invited via industry bodies and associations

tCn welcomes members of the ACA – Association of Consultant Architects, the NFDC – National Federation of Demolition Contractors and the IDE – Institute of Demolition Engineers. Mark Anthony, already well known in the demolition sector, has been invited to speak about social media at the IDE’s spring seminar taking place at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 25 February 2011.

Calling all editors, journalists, bloggers and content managers!

We are always looking for people to join the tCn team and help with the content, and with administration and promotion of our sector-specific community groups. If you are interested and think it could help your organisation, then contact us via

Now, I’m off to watch The Social Network to see how all this online networking madness actually started!
