The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has launched a mobile app to keep its members up-to-date with news, CPD, and networking.
Available on the Apple Store and Google Play, the CIOB Connect app can be used to access a library of CPD videos, chat with other members, and view the institute’s policy work.
It will also have news feeds from CIOB publications Construction Manager and Global Construction Review, which will soon be joined by BIM+.
The CIOB is developing the app further so that it may be more personalised for users, and include events and membership directories.
CIOB head of digital Tim Cawood has written a blog about the app and commenting about the chat aspect of it he said: “Staying in touch with each other – friends, family, or colleagues – has changed entirely in the last 14 months.
“Whether you’re conducting daily stand-ups on Zoom or hosting conferences, we’re all trying to find ways to stay connected.
“This was a challenge we felt was central to delivering our app, we wanted it to be more than just a place where you could access information but to be a place that helps you keep in touch.”
