A new Group has been established on business social networking site LinkedIn exclusively for specifiers, contractors, engineers, and installers of drainage systems for commercial and residential buildings.

Hosted by Mike Rawlings, Marketing Manager at leading cast iron soil and drain pipe systems manufacturer Saint-Gobain PAM UK, the Building Drainage Network provides a forum, believed to be the first of its kind in the sector, for informed debate about all aspects of cast iron drainage systems, from maintenance to issues surrounding installation and sustainability.

Members will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of polls and debates on key drainage-related topics, as well as being given free access to informative white papers and exclusive video content.

Mike Rawlings commented: “Until now there has been no dedicated online forum for the drainage sector which meets the needs of all parties whether they are involved in specification, management or maintenance. The Building Drainage Network will see a range of topics discussed, with the floor very much open for members to initiate debates on the issues they are facing - and to share experiences, expertise and best practice with their counterparts.

“The aim is to help ensure that informed decisions are made on material choice and specification, installation and ongoing management of drainage systems – delivering the best possible solution and added value for customers and end users while ensuring a satisfactory return for all suppliers involved.”

Membership of the Building Drainage Network is open to UK-based LinkedIn members with responsibility for specifying, installing, or maintaining drainage systems in buildings. For further information and to apply to join the Group, visit and search for Building Drainage Network.
