This site needs YOU!
By David Trench.
By now you are likely to be well versed with Designing Buildings Wiki, having already ‘UMMed’ and ‘AHHed’ your way through a significant number of informative articles which populate the site and cover everything from development appraisal to sustainability.
But to ensure it continues to grow and to be seen as the information hub for the construction industry, used by everyone from clients and quantity surveyors to architects, contractors and students, Designing Buildings Wiki needs your learned input.
Any surgeon, doctor or medical researcher who wants to make their name publishes papers in The Lancet, while scientists wanting to share their knowhow turn to their sounding board, Nature.
In the construction industry, that vital information is tucked away in peoples’ heads, buried in libraries or lost in internal reports sitting impotently on shelves. Now is the time to dust them down and upload them to Designing Buildings Wiki.
Go on – get your name out there and help your peers at the same time.
