About The Build Review

Join us at The Build Review as we champion better building and business practices that truly make a difference, change lives, and improve our world one step at a time.

I’m Ian Thompson, editor at The Build Review, a digital magazine and building education platform dedicated to exploring the most innovative and sustainable ways to plan, design, and build high-quality, energy-efficient homes that are affordable and built to last.

With over 35 years of experience in the industry as a product designer, building designer, builder, consultant, traveler, floor sweeper, tea maker, father, and husband, I’ve seen firsthand the challenges facing our industry. From poor planning and outdated policies to unethical practices, too many homes are being built that fall short of our expectations.

That’s why we need your help in educating industry professionals and clients on the latest high-performance building systems, products, and materials from around the world. By sharing success stories and best practices, we can help businesses become more efficient, collaborative, profitable, and sustainable.

As funding permits we will also produce media content for those with valuable stories but limited means.

My door is always open to anyone, anywhere who wants to make a real difference. Whether you have a great product, building system, project, case study, review, or even just a good idea, please don’t hesitate to email your details and story outline to me at editorial@staging12.buildreview.org.
