Launching Designing Buildings Wiki
Designing Buildings Wiki is a free online service providing a forum for everyone involved in the building design process to share their knowledge and to build an industry wide consensus about how things should be done.
As an open access wiki site, it is written by its users, for its users. So if you don't like what you see, you can change it. If you don't see what you want you can add it. The more people that contribute to the site, the more accurate, comprehensive and successful it will be. Designing Buildings Wiki offers:
- Simple, accessible and free-to-use guidance for every stage of the design process,
- Advice for clients in the very early stages of projects.
- Model plans for commonly used procurement routes.
- Comprehensive information about regulations such as planning permission, building regulations, health and safety and European procurement rules.
- Clear, up-to-date information about procedures such as appointments, design reviews and government gateways.
- Descriptions of roles and responsibilities for all involved in the design process.
The site is designed to be of particular use to building clients, students, academics, newly-qualified professionals and small practices, but it also offers a shop window for professionals with specialist knowledge.
