Building's networking event for new professionals attracts over 200 guests at its first event in East London

Building's Phase One networking group attracted over 200 new professionals at its launch party in East London last night.

The event at the Light Bar in Shoreditch attracted a broad mix of construction professionals and they were greeted at the door with a Phase One Fling - a heady "Building blue" cocktail specially mixed for the occasion .

Members of Building's graduate editorial panel welcomed the guests and popular columnist Tony Bingham entertained his younger counterparts with tales from his early days as a QS.

The aim of the evening was for new professionals to get to know their peers working across all sectors of construction. A flurry of business cards exchanged between housebuilders, architects, QSs, contractors and engineers were testament to the success of the evening.

Building would like to thank everybody who attended the event and hope they enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with their fellow professionals. Watch out for future events in the pages of Building magazine.
