The Build Chain is a digital construction procurement platform that transforms the process of buying materials and hiring equipment for sub-contractors.
Users submit one simple enquiry form for the materials and equipment they require which is instantly delivered to appropriate suppliers. Suppliers submit quotes to the sub-contractor who then compare these in one dashboard.
All data is stored and logged to ensure compliance, governance and to provide data driven insights or reports.

Sub-contractors save time by submitting just one enquiry form, increasing the efficiency of your projects

Reduce your carbon emissions with easy access to local supply chains via the 500+ branches now available on our platform.

The Build Chain was developed using our founders’ 25 years of digital platforms knowledge coupled with expertise from Quantity Surveyors, Buyers, and Procurement Experts to create market leading Digital Procurement for the Construction Industry.
We understand the unique set of challenges facing main contractors, from frameworks requesting the utilisation of local sub-contractors, to the need to demonstrate that a project has been completed as sustainably as possible.
Our vision is to offset these challenges by allowing main contractors to utilise The Build Chain to make it easier for your sub-contractors to use local suppliers for their materials and provide accurate reporting on sub-contractor procurement activity.
