The Building Society is a coworking space with a purpose - to bring the built environment industry together, to educate, inspire, and action ideas not just for business but for social and environmental reform.

  • Onboard new members, and ensure consistent and continuous engagement with existing members to provide a positive experience within the community.
  • Engage with members so they always feel welcome and supported.
  • Identify and stimulate collaboration opportunities within The Building Society.
