We created Copronet to make the construction industry fairer, faster and more efficient. Inspired by our own experience, we want to provide the digital hub that was missing from our sector – a single place where people, tools and work come together.
We want everyone to have access to the best technology without having to worry about the cost. So, there will always be a free plan for Copronet, and our pricing for other plans will always be affordable. We don’t believe in contracts. We want you to stay because you value what Copronet brings to your working day, not because you’re locked in.
We want you to love using Copronet and we’d like your help in making it even better. Copronet will keep evolving as we launch new features and fine-tune the experience.
If you have suggestions about what you’d like to see, let us know.
Chief Executive Officer
The Co-founder of Copronet (formerly TenderSpace), David’s extensive experience in successful commercial property ventures truly cemented his view that the industry needed a unifying common denominator. He saw a way to simplify, and at the same time strengthen, the ties that bind us all towards the same productive, profitable goals. Copronet is the result of this vision, and it’s a result that David is really excited to have helped realise.
Chief Operating Officer
Emma is the Co-founder of Copronet (formerly TenderSpace). Integral to shaping Copronet’s raison d’etre, Emma – like David – knew that the only way to bring construction together was to create a network that is as hard-working and goal-focused as the people who populate it. But why stop there? Having spent many years in Board-level positions within the industry, Emma knew that Copronet could also become a powerful force for growth, and she’s worked alongside David and the team to forge the tools that can make this happen.
