Building People CIC is a social enterprise with a clear plan: create one place that aggregates content and opportunities from across the built environment (architecture, engineering and construction), then connect people to information, resources and vacancies through digitally enabling existing organisations/initiatives.
How is Building People doing this? By committing to collaborating without duplicating effort. Through the development of a ‘single marketplace’ technology platform that underpins the websites of others, Building People is enriching content and adding value to the individual without disrupting the user experience.
 Founding Partners
The proof of concept platform has been developed with the Chartered Surveyors Training Trust (CSTT), made possible by collaboration with 60 other organisations, and with the support of Founding Partners: CSTT, The Chartered Surveyors' Company and University College of Estate Management.

Building People was founded as a Community Interest Company (CIC) by Rebecca Lovelace (Chief Dot-joiner) in 2017 who asked industry members, "doesn't it make sense to create one place that brings together the fragmented activities taking place across the built environment, not reinventing what already exists, but aggregating, enabling and connecting?"
If you are looking for organisations that deliver work, learning and/or support activities to diverse and under-represented audiences, have a look at our 'Network of Networks' for those that form the Building People Communities, with a list of over 1,000 organisations/initiatives available via the website.
