Charlie Schouten named Construction News northern correspondent

Construction News has appointed Charlie Schouten as northern correspondent to be based in Manchester.

CN’s current editorial analyst will be based in Manchester from 1 August and will cover news and analysis from the area encompassed by the government’s conceived Northern Powerhouse.

His official title will be northern correspondent / data analyst, and he will continue to oversee CN’s data content, Inside Knowledge and the annual CN100, which will be published online first next month.

The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce’s construction pipeline has identified £30bn of projects to be delivered across Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside alone by 2018.

Construction News editor Rebecca Evans said: “The creation of a northern correspondent allows Construction News to get even closer to its customers and its markets, enabling even more face-to-face contact at projects and events throughout the country.

“With construction in the North a focus for government and investors alike, the creation of a northern correspondent means CN will report on progress and development on the ground instead of from an office in London.

“Contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and clients based in the North will find it easier to work with Construction News, knowing there is an individual on their doorstep with whom they can build a relationship.”

Charlie Schouten can be contacted in the usual ways: by email at, on Twitter @cninsight or by phone at 0203 033 2771.
