General

What is The B1M?

The B1M is the definitive video channel for construction. We inspire a better industry by sharing knowledge, best practice + compelling stories. We inspire young people to join our industry by showcasing the incredible projects and feats of engineering it delivers.

How big is our audience?

The numbers in the "Be seen" section at the bottom of our homepage detail our audience size. You can find out more about our audience and how to get yourself in front of them here.

Video Formats + Sharing

What kind of videos do you publish?

We share videos that have been originally produced by The B1M and submitted content from third parties. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to be notified with each release.

You can find out more about our vision in our Media Information. To work with us or to power an awesome video, drop us a line at Video@TheB1M.com.

Where can I see your back catalogue?

You can see our full back catalogue, featuring all the videos we have released here.

What do you mean by "Power a Video"?

Video powering is where a brand financially supports The B1M in return for discrete + appropriate exposure on our channel, helping us to sustain our free, global resource. It can take two forms:

  • Discrete + appropriate brand and/or product placement within video content (example here).
  • Appropriate brand sponsorship of a video or video series (example here).

To preserve the integrity of our resource, Editorial control is retained by The B1M at all times.

Powering a video is by far the best way to reach + see results from our engaged audience. To support us in this way drop us a line at Video@TheB1M.com. You can learn more about our audience + reach in our Media Information.

How can I share your videos?

We rely on people sharing our videos to inspire a better industry. We only ask that you be nice and play by our rules. We must be credited alongside any third party embedded videos.

Ripping, downloading and/or editing our videos is illegal and will result in legal action.

Can I embed your videos?

You may embed our videos onto other websites or blogs with our permission, as per our Guidelines for Sharing. We have simple partnerships in place with numerous sites to embed our content + help it reach a wider audience. Talk to us to set one up!

How can I create a video with you?

We love making great videos and distributing them to our global audience. It’s what we do. To work with us on a project just get in touch!

I have a video, will you share it for me?

It depends what it is. You apply by submitting your content here. We carefully curate submissions to ensure they are up to date, accurate + reliable for our audience. Please bear in mind that we probably won't share your video if:

  • It is a sales pitch.
  • It has already been published, shared and/or viewed on another channel or platform.
  • It is outdated or contains inaccurate information.
  • It is poorly shot or inconsiderate of the YouTube platform dynamics (where we typically have just 8 seconds to engage people).

If you think your clip is awesome, submit it + we’ll let you know what we think …Simon Cowell style!

Video Playback

Videos are not playing for me

Sorry about that. You need to ensure that you have a suitable internet connection. If you are working within an organisation you may need to check that your system administrator allows you to watch video clips from YouTube, our third party video hosting platform.

If you are still unable to view our videos please contact our Support Team. Don’t worry, they’re a nice bunch.

360 videos are not playing for me

To watch a 360 video you'll need to be using the latest version of Chrome, Opera, Firefox or Internet Explorer on your computer. On mobile devices use the latest version of the YouTube app. You can move around the video by tilting your device or using your finger on mobile, or with your mouse on desktop.

How does the view count work?

The view count on our videos is pulled through from YouTube by API with a slight lag. Whenever you watch a video, that counts as a view.

Some videos may appear to have more views on our website than on our YouTube channel. This is because they were originally released on an earlier version of our website that used Vimeo as our third party video hosting platform. The view count for these videos on our website now includes their ‘legacy view count’ from Vimeo, and their new view count from YouTube. Yeah, it made our heads hurt too.
