WELCOME TO THE CONSTRUCTION HISTORY SOCIETY

The Construction History Society is the society for all those who are enthusiastic about any aspect of the history of construction. Our members come from all walks of life. You might be someone who has an interesting story to tell, someone who collects items to do with buildings or any scholar who works on the history of buildings. We encourage people to take an interest in how the world around them has been built and those that built it.

The Society is devoted to the  promotion and study of the history of construction. It aims to identify and protect sources of information and archives to do with construction history and to organise and sponsor events and publications that help achieve these aims. It has members from all over the world.
