The construction industry knowledge base
United KingdomWebsite Email
Designing Buildings Wiki has been created with one simple goal:
 To put all construction industry knowledge in one place, available to everyone for free.
Construction in the UK employs 3 million people in 280,000 organisations, each holding a vast amount of expert knowledge. Everything from how to create a brief for a new project, right through to getting tax breaks for water efficient taps. But much of that knowledge is inaccessible, fragmented and dispersed. If we put it all in one place, where everyone can find it, Construction UK will be more efficient, more collaborative, more innovative and better able to compete in the global market place.
