Our history

The Basement Information Centre (TBIC) is a formalisation of the original Basement Development Group, which was set up in 1992, to encourage further development and provide information on domestic basements. It was formed as a direct result of the interest in basements being shown by both builders and their clients, and in recognition of the benefits that they offer.

In 2016 The Basement Information Centre became a specialist interest group of MPA The Concrete Centre. For more information visit www.concretecentre.com
