'LinkedIn' for buildings launched in UK

Published:  01 March, 2013

A “LinkedIn” style network for buildings has been launched in the UK by Honest Buildings.

The US-based company says database will contain details of more than 9,500 commercial buildings.

Potential purchasers, developers and occupiers can access the database to download information on buildings and connect with other professionals involved with them.

Contractors could also find work via the site as property firms look for specialists to work on refurbishment schemes.

Nick Katz, head of market development Europe, Honest Buildings, said: “Whether you’re in London or Liverpool, are a billion-pound property owner or a small retail tenant, we’re thrilled to offer a new way to make real estate decisions faster and more efficiently than ever before.

“The HB Network now has an online profile for nearly every UK property, making it easy to compare companies, projects and professionals and find the best solution for your real estate needs.”
