Building Links celebrates 25 years and new ownership!
The North Island’s weekly construction industry newsletter marked this occasion with a celebration on Oct. 11 and the introduction of a new publisher.
Building Links, a VICA member, recently announced that founding publisher Clarice Coty has sold the business to Pam Beynonbrown, who will continue the tradition of publishing Building Links on a weekly basis.
Coty, who started the business from her home in 1993, originally photocopying and stapling pages before hand delivering weekly copies has over the years built Building Links into an online hub of information that businesses, organizations and municipalities have come to rely on. The www.buildinglinks.ca website was launched in 2005 to distribute Building Links electronically.
“Subscribers depend on Building Links,” Beynonbrown said. “Our publication has been recognized as a valued resource to receive weekly up-to-date news for new construction and real estate projects for the Comox Valley, Campbell River, North Island, Port Alberni, the West Coast and Powell River.
“We will continue to research and publish up-to-date information and insights that will assist our clients to make connections, stay informed and be apprised of industry news,” continues Beynonbrown.
Coty has worked with the new owner over several months to ensure a successful transition, and will continue to stay on as part of the research and editing team.
“I am confident that Pam will carry the Building Links banner successfully into the future and offer new services as the business continues to grow and thrive,” Coty said to the group gathered to celebrate the 25th anniversary."
“It has been my privilege to have you as clients, to dig up the scoops informing you of the latest construction news over the past 25 years,” Coty recently told her readers. “I wish for each of you continued success with your business or organization. Thank you for your trust and support over these many years.”
With more than 1,275 editions published, Building Links will continue to build on its long history of serving the North Island’s construction industry, reporting on upcoming projects, industry trends and statistics, new tenders and building permits.
Coty and Beynonbrown would like to thank their team of researchers, tech and admin staff as well as the planning staff in the municipal offices and to the architects, consultants, developers, realtors, engineers and others, who take the time to share information on the projects Building Links reports on.
