How CN covered the EU Referendum result online

When dawn broke on the EU Referendum result at 4.45am, several of the CN team were already hard at work.

Knowing the construction industry would be desperate to understand what Brexit meant for them, we’d planned ahead. We’d written in-depth analyses for either outcome, plus gathered comment on the legal implications and sectors and projects likely to be hardest hit.

All this was on our first breaking news email at 6am. It was an early start to a day on which CN completely led the agenda, focusing solely on content not available anywhere else.

We didn’t regurgitate the national news, we published only sector-specific analysis and comment. We’d lined up in advance commentators, interactive share price charts and response from the industry, which we updated throughout the day.
