Government grants seal of approval

The Government has given Designing Buildings Wiki its seal of approval.

Minister for Communities and Local Government, Greg Clark, has welcomed the website’s “innovative approach” and said “property development practitioners will find the new website very useful”.

A sentiment we hope you share.


Hot on the heels of the Government, you may have noticed that the Chartered Institute of Buildings (CIOB) has joined our growing list of industry supporters that already includes Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Buro Happold and Development Securities PLC.

Read about CIOB's sponsorship in Construction Manager this month.


One of the latest additions to the website is a great article on access and inclusion by Buro Happold’s Head of Inclusive Design, Neil Smith.

With more than 100 users already registered to share their knowledge on Designing Buildings Wiki, we look set to publish our 400th article very soon. Stay tuned to find out more.

We hope that with yours and the industry’s continued support we can help make building design and development better informed, better integrated and more innovative for its 2 million workers, delivering more knowledge and best practice advice from the UK and beyond!


If you’re not already, follow us on Twitter @DesigningB to be kept up to date with the latest additions to the website and to share your feedback with us.
