New online construction publication Build in Digital has formally launched today, promising to provide quality insight into the rapidly evolving world of digital construction.
Reporting from “the bleeding edge of digital construction”, the publication will offer the latest news from the UK and beyond, provide incisive commentary on key issues and developments, while encouraging interaction and collaboration from within the sector.
Commenting on the launch, Build in Digital editor Liam Turner said: “There is a growing need for a sharp, responsive journalism that’s aligned with the construction sector’s accelerated interest in digitisation and technology.
“Build in Digital aims to facilitate such reporting and to keep construction professionals informed and up to date on the issues that matter most to them.”
Mark Farmer – CEO of Cast Consultancy and the government’s MMC champion – added: “It’s great to have a new online source of news and information for the construction industry.
“The way in which we are all engaging with content now means digital media has never been more important, and to have a good breadth of choice for the latest news and events, especially in the fast moving areas of technology, MMC, and innovation is really important.
“I wish Build in Digital well with its launch.”
