Quick introduction to designing buildings wiki
Designing Buildings Wiki was created to make construction industry knowledge available to everyone for free. This will help make the industry more efficient, more collaborative, more innovative and will help prevent mistakes.
And because you can add your profile to the top of articles you write, when people read your articles, they will also find out about you.
Creating an article
You will be asked to check whether the article already exists, and if it doesn't, you will be asked if you want to create it.
You can type your article from scratch or you can paste it from another application.
Adding your profile to your articles
Then save the article.
What sort of content is acceptable
You can write about any subject related to the construction industry, including research, publications, organisations, theories, products, practices and so on, but articles should be factual, not promotional. You can include as much promotional material as you like on your profile page, but articles should be neutral, just presenting the facts.
Writing style should be 'encyclopaedic' rather than 'bloggy'. See Quick Style Guide for more information.
