tCn wins Be2Award for best online AEC community

Be2award-trophyFor those who might have missed it, last week was Social Media Week in London, and for those interested in how people in the construction and property sectors are using social media, there was only one place to be: the Be2Awards and @ConstrucTALKs event on Wednesday at the Building Centre.

And, I am delighted to say, it was a successful afternoon for tCn – the Construction Network, which won the Be2Award (the name comes from combining Built Environment and Web 2.0) for best online community or network, with 40% of the votes. The awards were decided by online voting, and so we were additionally pleased to received a runners-up place in the category for best use of photo or video by an architecture, engineering and construction website or community.

Announced simultaneously live in London and online, the Be2awards were organised by Paul Wilkinson and Martin Brown of social media advocacy movement Be2camp, and attracted sponsors including Hewlett Packard, British Gas and Building Magazine.

It’s fantastic that Be2Camp organised this ground-breaking event to recognise leading social media technology for the built environment, and that tCn gathered so much support.

The awards highlight how far we’ve come in what’s repeatedly described as a conservative and change-resistant industry. The next generation of talent are not only aware of these technologies but are becoming masters of them and it’s encouraging to see more and more major organisations paying attention.
