Access to the Website is totally free and content is created by users and moderated by recognized experts.
The project is developed by renowned organizations and multiple partners in each country to ensure its independence, the quality of its content and adaptation to national markets.
It has been launche with the support of European Union (IEE project from May 2011 to May 2013) with two main objectives: faster spread green building good practices and contribute to the economic take off of the sector.

An innovative multi-Partner project
Construction21 has been initiated by IFPEB and developed by a consortium of 9 European partners. Each partner leads its own local platform and develops it with local professionals in the country. CIRIDD is the technical partner in charge of IT developments benefiting from AGORA21 and MEDIATERRE projects.
From May 2013 and the end of the European funded period, the portal is co-managed by the different local chapters. These chapters, issued form the founding partners team, are non-profit or academic closely linked to green building sector in each country.
The network is coordinated by an international non-profit association created in April 2013 (Construction21 AISBL), co-owned by all the current chapters. They will be joined progressively by the future partners opening Construction21 platforms in new countries.
