Government grants seal of approval
The Government has given Designing Buildings Wiki its seal of approval.
Minister for Communities and Local Government, Greg Clark, has welcomed the website’s “innovative approach” and said “property development practitioners will find the new website very useful”.
A sentiment we hope you share.
Hot on the heels of the Government, you may have noticed that the Chartered Institute of Buildings (CIOB) has joined our growing list of industry supporters that already includes Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Buro Happold and Development Securities PLC.
We hope that with yours and the industry’s continued support we can help make building design and development better informed, better integrated and more innovative for its 2 million workers, delivering more knowledge and best practice advice from the UK and beyond!
If you’re not already, follow us on Twitter @DesigningB to be kept up to date with the latest additions to the website and to share your feedback with us.
