On Construction News we have a digital-first approach to publishing. This has been the position for the last few years but, as with all things digital, it evolves from month to month – sometimes even day to day – as we learn what you find most useful.
We aim to bring you the information you want when it suits you, not when it suits us. We follow that up with analysis, because we understand that you don’t just need to know what is happening, but why it is happening, what it means for your business or your career, and what is most likely to happen next.
“Interactive elements such as video, charts and maps help visualise the data and set in context the interviews”
If you sign up to our newsletters, we deliver news, insight and opinions direct to your inbox three times a day.
But we also appreciate that sometimes you like to read about a particular project or subject in greater depth, which is why we publish project reports, data analysis, market trends and interviews throughout the week online as well as in print.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve the information we bring you digitally and this week, I am delighted that Construction News has published its first interactive report, Building the Northern Powerhouse, which sets out everything you need to know about the policy.
Our features editor Daniel Kemp has written the report, which gets behind the government rhetoric to explore what the Northern Powerhouse will really mean for the construction industry.
Because the guide is digital, Dan has been able to include interactive elements such as video, charts, maps and more, to really help you visualise the data and set in context the interviews he’s done with major clients and contractors in the region.
Building the Northern Powerhouse has already received a lot of positive feedback. As always, I’d love to hear what you think of it so that when we write our next interactive report – or launch something else that’s new – we provide even more of what you value most.
