Building Trust is a non-profit charity founded in 2010. We believe in good design for all and that design at its core is about developing skills for problem solving and creating better solutions. We use these skills in tackling real world issues and in the delivery and design of our projects, having a positive impact upon people, wildlife and the planet. In only a few years our team has grown to include architects, engineers, planners, contractors and many other professionals that have a role to play in shaping our environment.

Rapid urbanisation twinned with urban sprawl, unsustainable construction and high levels of homelessness are just a few of the areas that can be reconsidered and addressed by those in the construction and design industry. The duty of care for designers is to realise these issues, review solutions and propose answers. Building Trust works with communities, local charities, key individuals and companies delivering holistic, sustainable solutions to buildings and infrastructure. We are a first port of call for anyone wishing to work towards designing a better world.


Today we support projects in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Our projects range from health care and educational facilities to homes for those most at risk and in need within our society. 100's of children learn in our classrooms every day and we aim to house 1000's of people by the end of 2014.

Our newsletter is read by 1000's of professionals, our website visited almost 100,000 times every year. We support a growing network of companies and individuals who want to get their own worthwhile projects off the ground. The world is changing and together we can make it a better place.
