Be2Awards on hold for 2014

The Be2Awards will not be held in 2014. As Be2camp co-founders, Martin Brown and I had a long discussion about the programme, and about our respective workloads (the Awards and accompanying Be2Talks take a significant amount of time, effort and some money to organise). From a purely practical point of view, we decided that we just didn’t …

It has been a busy few weeks for Designing Buildings, the free construction-specific “expert wiki” which celebrated its first anniversary at the end of June.

Did the Be2Awards bypass most AEC PR and marketing people?

About two weeks ago (see Announcing the Be2Awards 2011), I launched the website for what we believe are the world’s first social media awards for “The built environment” (ie: architecture, engineering, construction, facilities management, property, etc).

Announcing the Be2Awards 2011

In the middle of 2008, four people started a Twitter conversation about how people in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sectors might be able to use social media tools and techniques to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain a better, more sustainable built environment. The outcome of those early exchanges was the formation of …
