Articles about products and services


Products and services are a key part of the construction industry. Without them nothing could be built. As a result, we welcome factual articles about products and services on Designing Buildings Wiki.

Just follow these simple rules:

  • Think encyclopaedia not magazine. Give facts not opinion.
  • Articles should not be promotional, they should offer guidance, not adverts.
  • Be balanced. Adopt a neutral position, listing both positive and negative characteristics.
  • Think about what an independent commentator would write. You should never need to write 'I' or 'we'.
  • Generic articles attract more readers. An article about lifts written by Otis will attract far more readers than an article about Otis lifts.

Please reserve promotional information about your company for your page about me. You create this page when you register on Designing Buildings Wiki. It can include contact details, links to your website and marketing material including images and logos, and anything else you care to add.

You can link articles for which you are the main author to your page about me by going to the bottom of the article, and clicking the insert signature button.


Your profile will then appear at the top of the article. See user signature for more information.

To get started, just click the big orange button.


For more general information about what to put in your article see the quick style guide.
