Building Connected API is now reinforced with TradeTapp API

TradeTapp API

The BuildingConnected API enables users to extract all key bidding and opportunity data from both BuildingConnected Pro and Bid Board Pro.

With addition of TradeTapp API, it is now possible to also extract all key qualification and financial data from TradeTapp and Bid Board Pro, allowing you to store all your BuildingConnected data in your own data warehouse.


The main task of the TradeTapp is to help companies find relevant vendors to qualify and partner with on their construction projects. The TradeTapp API allows to tap into this data and it provides two distinctive data sets which correlate to submission data sent by contracting partners as a part of their qualification submission and additionally some data captured during the risk review process. All this data is available through following endpoints:

  • The qualifications endpoint - allows you to retrieve a list of your vendors’ submitted questionnaires.
  • The financials endpoint - allows you to retrieve a mix of vendor-submited, CG – entered and TradeTapp calculated data.

The Qualification Data Model

TradeTapp Qualification objects represent a completed questionnaire that a vendor has submitted in TradeTapp. The qualification object allows you to view all the answers that a vendor submitted - not including the supporting files.
