    Market Engagement

    Instantly engage with the UK’s construction industry

    Never has engaging with the construction industry been so easy.

    Projects can be setup and viewed based on location, relevant trades selected and suppliers sourced based on project-specific criteria.

    Suppliers are then notified and can instantly reply with their expressions of interest.

    Main contractors can view supplier credentials and see whether they’re suitable for their projects.
    This important pre-construction activity can be carried whilst estimators are busy building Workpackage documents.

    By the time enquiries are issued, suppliers will have already been found who are willing to provide prices.
