What's going on

Designing Buildings Wiki is the only industry-wide, cross-discipline forum for finding and sharing information about building design and development. It works just like Wikipedia, anyone can create articles about subjects they know and anyone can find articles about subjects they don’t.

So what’s new on the site?

Well, we hope you enjoyed our 400th article by Mike Davies of RSH+P. With your help we will soon be well on our way to 500. Just go to Create a new article to find out how. It really is simple.

We’ve had some great new articles in the last few weeks, have a look at: post occupancy evaluation, concurrent delay, 3D animation for insurance assessment, an introduction to the new rules for squatting, guidance on letters of intent following the Ampleforth ruling, and many more…..Where else can you keep up to date with so many diverse subjects?

We’ve also started to gather all the industry statistics we could lay our hands on in one place. A great resource for researchers and journalists.

With your 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 for 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 site and to share your feedback with us.
