GBC and Firstplanit join forces for retrofit and new build


·  Alliance for Sustainable Building (ASBP) had referred Ankita of Firstplanit to BrianSpecMan of National Green Specification (NGS), Green Building Encyclopaedia (GBE) 2 years earlier but our email services never quite made the connection

·  We individually exhibited at Futurebuild 2022 with very positive response from construction professionals to both offerings.

·  GBC received an email from Firstplanit the first morning of the show, GBC realised that Firstplanit had created what BrianSpecMan had wanted to do 20 years ago, with bells and whistles.

·  Ankita visited BrianSpecMan at the GBC stand and that was the most important handshake of the show.

·  We are now working together to push our ambitions as far as we can.
