Construction News has been named International Building Press Magazine of the Year for its investigative work into Carillion’s collapse and campaigns on mental health and gender equality.
The 45th IBP Awards took place in London last night and saw judges hand the coveted weekly magazine gong to CN.
Judges called CN’s coverage of Carillion’s collapse “impressively comprehensive”.
They said: “A complete job covering every angle, its post-Carillion issue was packed with news, features and comment but also demonstrated impressive reader engagement, highlighting the best online responses to the volleys of breaking news stories the – admittedly small – editorial team had also published online.
“A new editor, Tom Fitzpatrick, had the temerity to commission hard-hitting research into difficult subjects for the construction industry – gender balance and mental health.
“The magazine’s diverse range of commentators complemented its hard-hitting news coverage.”
