Construction News is coming to the end of the six-week digital summer, in which the editorial team focused on producing industry-leading online-only coverage. Here’s a snapshot of our unmissable content.
BBGE 100 Bishopsgate Project over 2m Specialists 2016
Dunne: On 19 July, CN revealed workers from Dunne Group had been sent home from sites including 100 Bishopsgate. The story became our most-read of the summer and was the first of six pieces of content concerning the demise of Dunne Group CN produced in the following three days, as the company entered administration.
Willmott Dixon Scarborough Leisure Village 12
Football’s coming home: Our most-read project report was on Willmott Dixon bringing football back home for Scarborough Athletic. We also visited sites in London, Newcastle and Scotland for our weekly onsite reports.
Rolling coverage: CN introduced our week in motion videos showing highlights of the big news, analysis and features in each week. We also showcased timelapses, skills lessons and visits to Swansea Bay and Hinkley Point C.
VUCITY London model 4
Tech week: A 3D interactive digital model of London; concrete sensor technology; placemaking; robotic construction; 3D Crossrail tunnel scans and much more went into our five-day tech week in August. It’s even inspired a new weekly blog from Dan Kemp.
In-depth digital analysis: Months of work goes into compiling our longform reports. Last week, the CN Specialists Index 2016 was released. For the first time, the Specialists Index has been separated out from the CN100 report, to focus purely on the fate of specialists in seven different sectors. Next Tuesday will see the publication of the interactive CN100 report. Other analyses have included a profile of our new construction minister and an in-depth look at the growing self-storage market.
