The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is a charity and international membership organisation established to foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering. It was founded in 1818 and was granted a royal charter in 1828. Its head office is at One Great George Street in Westminster, London, and it represents more than 86,000 members worldwide.

As well as supporting its members to become qualified, it also encourages them to continue their professional development by providing a variety of knowledge resources. These include industry-leading publications and tailored training courses.

In September 2015 ICE became a sponsor of Designing Buildings Wiki. ICE's Director of Engineering Knowledge, Nathan Baker, said, “ICE is the world's oldest engineering institution, established nearly 200 years ago. Our knowledge base is rich and diverse, and as a Learned Society, fostering and sharing this knowledge through a variety of resources sits at the heart of what we do. It encourages innovation and excellence in the industry – and ultimately benefits society."

Designing Buildings Wiki Chairman David Trench CBE said, “ICE are a vital addition to our family of high-profile supporters, helping us become a truly comprehensive knowledge base, representative of the whole construction industry."
