Women in BIM (WIB) is a diverse network of female professionals within the AEC industry, dedicated to supporting women in BIM-related roles for skills, education and career progression. WIB is successful in empowering women across the globe in making game-changing contributions to the digital development of the built environment.


Costello Palmer worked with the WIB Core Team on a new website strategy. When designing a great website, it is very easy to focus on making something aesthetically pleasing and forgetting to ensure the site actually achieves its business goals.

For WIB, the website needed to be a knowledge portal, home to the WIB resources, and a place for Member engagement and collaboration. The brief was complex, with the need for a two-step website: first, the open site for all visitors and second, a private Member's login area.

It was important to start with an engagement strategy to meet the WIB user experience ambitions. We began with an audit of the existing site to assess the level of content available and what was being accessed. this allowed us to compliment the most used content and supplement with more essential reading. It also showed us gaps that we needed to fill, as well as presenting opportunities to build new areas of the site.

We created a site which offers a blend of trusted information and recommendations, paired with powerful content for all to view. The Member’s area offers a MyWIB Resource Zone with industry reports, events, key Member benefits, a WIB online Forum, full Member Directory, and the ability to connect with other Members securely.

The new Women in BIM website has been so well received and we are incredibly happy with the outcome. We’ve worked with Costello Palmer for a very long time and the team intuitively knew exactly what we needed and shared in our vision in connecting our global online community.Rebecca De Cicco, Global Chair, Women in BIM
