Writing articles

Writing articles is a great way to promote your business.

You can write about any subject related to the construction industry, including research, publications, organisations, theories, products, practices and so on. All we ask is that articles are factual (not adverts) and are encyclopaedic in style (not blog posts) - click here to find out more.

Your profile will appear at the top of articles you write, so when people read your article, they will also find out about you. Learn more about profiles.

  • Log in or register.
  • Click the orange ‘Create an article’ button.
  • Type your article from scratch, or paste it from another application.
