Designing Buildings Wiki


As construction projects become more integrated, the kind of knowledge required to set up, manage, design and construct our built environment is broadening. Legislative changes, sustainability targets, integrated teams – these all require new skills and information.

Designing Buildings Wiki is the only industry-wide, cross-discipline forum for finding and sharing information. It harnesses the democratising, open-access philosophy of the social media revolution – the site allows anyone to create articles about subjects they know and to find articles about subjects they don’t.

At the same time, the site enables industry professionals to include a link to a profile page with their article, so their name is connected with the information and expertise they have provided, offering them direct access to a global audience. Designing Buildings Wiki is one of the construction industries most popular websites.
