Using the IHBC’s Conservation Wiki, and its host platform Designing Buildings Wiki (DBW) – the construction industry knowledge base – IHBC members can take the opportunity to publish on that subject you’ve planned for so long, on any construction industry or conservation topics, including research, publications, organisations, theories, practices etc.
Designing Buildings Wiki (DBW) explains the publication process for articles:
DBW is the construction industry knowledge base, used by 7.5 million people a year to share articles about products, services, processes and best practice. Our users are construction professionals looking for knowledge to help them in their work. Supported by leading industry organisations; ICE, CIOB, BRE, CIAT, ECA, IHBC, RSHP and BSRIA, Designing Buildings Wiki offers 9,000 cross-discipline articles and is used by more than 30,000 people a day, making it one of the most popular construction industry websites.
