Though it may not be a resource many people are aware of in the Greater Lehigh Valley, The Blue Book Building and Construction Network is an active organization that serves as a tool for linking the many facets of construction and includes a chapter that covers Eastern Pennsylvania.
In addition to providing thebluebook.com, a national construction search engine, and the all-new ProView, (a place to find and connect with companies,) the network still publishes 28 regional Blue Book directories each year throughout the U.S., according to its website, www.thebluebook.com.
The network has a member base comprised of general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, manufacturers, architects, engineers, building owners, transportation and utilities professionals, real estate developers, facility and property managers and government agencies.
Coming up in May, the organization is hosting a day of free networking and education programs designed to facilitate face-to-face opportunities.
