Six countries in 2012, 11 in 2017, soon worldwide!
In 2012 Construction21 launched six national platforms in France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Romania and Spain. They are linked together via a central platform in English connected to BUILD UP, the European Commission website dedicated to Energy efficiency in buildings. Direct links allow each user to easily access information from the different platforms developed by each country proceeding from other countries.
From 2013, Construction21 began to spread throughout Europe and other continents and already covers Belgium, Luxemburg, Algeria, Morrocco and China. Brazil, Ivory Coat, USA should be the next countries to open, on the path to our goal : reach 50 platforms across the world by 2020.

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 national chapters. These chapters, issued form the founding partners team, are nonprofit or academic organisations closely linked to green building/city sector in each country.
The network is coordinated by an international nonprofit association created in April 2013 (Construction21 AISBL), co-owned by all the current chapters and our IT partner, CIRIDD. They will be joined progressively by the future partners opening Construction21 platforms in new countries.
