Building Links Celebrates Publishing 1,000 Issues

On May 17, 1993, we published the first issue of Building Links. Since that time, we have published a newsletter every week for 50 weeks of the year. This is our 1,000th issue!  Thank you to all of our  valued subscribers for being such a big part of our success.

I would also like to thank the team of Ted, Mia, Mare, Karen, Radiance, Chris and Evan who work together each week to bring you up-to-date news in the construction industry. We also extend our appreciation and thanks to the planning staff in the municipal offices and to the architects, consultants, developers, realtors, engineers and others, who take the time to give us the information on the projects that we report on.
