An independent research company was commissioned by NCE to carry out research among ICE members to solicit their views on the current offering from New Civil Engineer, as well as to understand what they would like to see in future.
The results showed that members were looking for a greater mix of print and digital content and wanted the printed magazine to include more technical content, particularly reports on projects in the UK and around the world.
As a result, the re-launched NCE promises a host of new content and features across a mix of formats including a new monthly feature packed magazine. The expanded monthly edition will allow for in-depth coverage and analysis of major projects and key market developments.
Billed as a new set of intelligence tools, NCE's re-launch is designed to better reflect the contribution made by civil engineers to the world's built environment. According to the publishers, the new products, including a re-launched website, a 'Daily Fix' news e-mail, 'Weekly News Wrap' and smartphone app address the areas that matter most to ICE members; global insight, technical knowledge, and inspiration for technology pioneers.
Commenting on the changes, Mark Hansford, Editor of New Civil Engineer said:
"We want New Civil Engineer to be an independent voice for the professional civil engineer with a clear remit to challenge and inform; to get under the skin of the industry and give professionals intelligence they cannot find elsewhere in a format and frequency that fulfils the need of today's civil engineers."
