WASHINGTON - The Associated Builders and Contractors recently announced that it has started a new magazine, Construction Executive - "the magazine for the business of construction."
The first issue was published in January. The monthly 52-page, color, glossy publication provides news, information, discussion and debates on issues impacting the construction industry, as well as articles and interviews on programs and projects of importance to industry leaders, according to ABC officials. Construction Executive replaces ABC's monthly tabloid, ABC Today.
"We are very excited about the launch of this new magazine, which will have a broader editorial focus and reach a much wider audience than we've had in the past," said ABC President and CEO Kirk Pickerel. "Our commitment is to make this magazine the place where the industry's top decision-makers go to get the information and insights they need to make informed business decisions and grow their companies."
ABC officials said Construction Executive would explore critical issues the industry is facing, including work force development, procurement, risk assessment, specialty contracting, environmental building and more.
In addition to 23,000 ABC member-subscribers, the magazine will also go to executives at 21,000 construction and construction-related firms. Readership is to include construction industry presidents, CEOs, vice presidents, chief financial officers, project managers, superintendents and education and safety directors, as well as product and material manufacturers and suppliers.
