Leading construction industry website Designing Buildings Wiki has appointed George Demetri as the new editor. George comes from a construction industry background that has spanned architectural practice, building products’ marketing/promotion, journalism and technical writing.
His most recent employment was as a technical writer with leading global engineering consultancy WSP, where he authored white papers, articles, company literature and major bids. He co-authored ’Out of Thin Air’, a white paper on alleviating the housing crisis by building apartments over stations and railway lines. The paper has been one of the company’s most successful of recent years.
George has also been a freelance journalist and editor of publications that include World Tunnelling, Trenchless World, Brick Bulletin and Port Technology International. Since 2013, he has been a judge of the annual International Building Press (IBP) National Journalism Awards, co-judging categories that have included infrastructure and construction feature writer.
“It’s a huge honour to have been appointed editor of designingbuildings.co.uk, a truly unique website in the construction sector”, said George. “There really is nothing like it in the industry – with five million users per year spread across the globe, it has become the construction industry’s ‘go to’ knowledge base and I’m honoured to have secured a key role in its development.”
George’s qualifications include degrees in architecture, philosophy, and a post-graduate diploma in building conservation. He was recently admitted to the Institution of Civil Engineers as an associate member (AMICE).
