In 2010, general contractor Paul McKelvey created Building Trades Network to increase project opportunities for his business and sub-contractors. Paul’s vision was to create an organization specifically designed to meet the needs of contractors and other building trades professionals.
BTN not only provides networking opportunities for referral business and bids, but also empowers members to share best practices and industry education and to collaborate on volunteer and community outreach opportunities. Since its inception, BTN members have referred each other more than $4.5 M in business.
Additionally, through membership in BTN, builders and trade professionals benefit from a resource center specifically designed for building professionals. This includes mini storage, office space, fleet parking, conference space and temporary workstations.
