THE construction information business Glenigan is once again under the same umbrella as Construction News.
Emap, which last year bought Construction News, has now struck a second deal with the Thomson Corporation worth 17.7 million which adds Glenigan to its portfolio.
The latest deal also includes the Applied Property Research business which sells commercial property information and the building cost information and Spons Plant Price Guide publisher BMMR.
Emap also took an option to buy Newmarket, Glenigans Dublin-based subsidiary, which provides construction information in the Irish Republic.
Geoff Hall, publisher of Construction News, said: Over the past six years we built up a solid and close working relationship with the Glenigan businesses.
It is a natural business move to bring us back together again so we can continue and develop the contracts and business information work further.
