Designing Buildings Wiki maps construction industry knowledge.

Designing Buildings Wiki, the construction industry knowledge base, has undertaken the first ever comprehensive mapping of construction industry knowledge. The results have been published in a major new report.

The key findings:

The industry is lacking the strategic leadership needed to coordinate the creation and dissemination of knowledge;

The emergence of the internet has fundamentally changed the way practitioners access knowledge, but the industry has not kept up;

Knowledge that is difficult to understand, buried in long documents or locked behind pay walls will not be used – even if it is critically important;

Practitioners need accessible, practical, easy-to-use guidance to help them carry out everyday activities.
