It's Your Build - a digital platform for engaging communities in their built environment

This is the place to follow all the developments taking place across the City with great photography, regular posts, maps, trails and (coming soon) drone footage and virtual reality.

This is a totally unique collaboration between business and community.

Here, in the one digital space, we bring together all that is planned and all that is happening across the city's built environment.   

Features, Posts and Community

Take a look at the huge variety of developments we are covering on our Features page. See fresh articles written by our community on our Posts page.

We are building this unique digital showcase, development by development, working with people across the community and across the construction industry to ensure that everyone is kept informed on what's happening and how the city and their community is moving forward. 

Our Community page will introduce you to those who are passionate about the built environment and are helping us gather and maintain content.

Whatever your interest in Birmingham, whether as someone who lives here, someone who's visiting the city, an investor or someone who's working on a proposed development or a new build, It's Your Build will give you everything you need such as what's planned, what's being built and who's involved in what. 

Birmingham builds - mapped and tracked for you!
