  • Construction Week has grown from strength to strength since its launch at the Big 5 in 2003. The magazine began with a circulation
    of 5,000, and today 36,113 readers devour the print version, while over 26,000 read the online edition.

    Construction Week has grown to be respected for its independent editorial coverage, covering all aspects of the construction industry, whether it be news and analysis, trends, project updates, special reports or in-depth interviews and features.

    The magazine also includes an appointments section, as well as tenders and business leads that give both local and international contractors the inside track when it comes to bidding for the region's new projects.

    Construction Week underwent a major design overhaul in May 2007, which readers have responded to immensely well. The new format includes some additions to the original editorial, including an 'on-site talk' page, which provides a forum for construction experts to debate and find solutions to the issues affecting the industry.

    In 2006, Construction Week won international editorial recognition at the Tabbie Awards, which rewards excellence in trade publishing.

    And building on the solid reputation gained over the last few years, 2007 saw the magazine?s coverage continue to be used as a point of reference for several major international newspapers, including the New York Times.

    As you can see, Construction Week has grown to become a supreme product, respected in the Middle East and recognised internationally. We invite you to join us to help further raise awareness of the industry that is building the Middle East of tomorrow, today.
