Designing Buildings Wiki is the free, open-access knowledge base for the construction industry.
Created in 2012, it now gets more than 30,000 page views a day and is used by 380,000 people a month. You can add articles about products, projects, practices, techniques, publications, innovations and ideas. Create a profile linked back to your website, and attach your profile to articles you write - so when people read your articles, they will also find out about you.
All we ask is that your articles are balanced, not sales pitches. Your profile page can be as self-promotional as you like but articles should stick to the facts. Think about what an encyclopaedia would say.
