Engineering News-Record Unveils Contractor Business Quarterly
Print and Digital Media Solution Focuses on Strategies for Growth
June 13, 2012 - New York, NY
Engineering News-Record (http://ENR.com), part of The McGraw-Hill Companies, today announced that Contractor Business Quarterly (ENR CBQ) will debut in ENR's July 16, 2012 issue. ENR CBQ is a print and digital section in ENR that addresses business strategies to help contractors improve performance, productivity and profits.
In print, ENR CBQ will reach more than 30,000 contractors within ENR's total paid circulation of 63,000. A digital edition of ENR CBQ will be available online at ENR.com for access by ENR.com's more than 200,000 monthly unique visitors, with additional digital distribution to include selected active contractors drawn from the Dodge database of more than half a million projects annually.
"The debut of ENR CBQ continues ENR's innovative leadership in bringing to market essential news and insights in the format ENR readers prefer, whether in print, online, or through webinars, live events or coming soon—our mobile news app," said Janice Tuchman, ENR editor-in-chief.
"ENR CBQ is a new and innovative extension of the ENR media network, now going further to address the business needs of the contractor community and those that need to reach them. Contractors have told us that they want and prefer independent, objective journalism edited through the lens of the contracting executive, and they want it delivered within the one media brand they trust and rely on above all others – ENR," said Paul Bonington, ENR's vice president and publisher.
The new quarterly section will differentiate itself from ENR's news and features to include topics essential to managing a construction business. Said Tuchman, "Contractors, specialty contractors and construction managers make up the largest part of ENR's audience, and ENR CBQ will give them a thoughtful look at the business side of contracting. The package will include analytical features about management strategy, balancing risk and project delivery systems as well as ownership strategies, workforce and technology. We also will tap McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge for business intelligence resources on active markets."
ENR CBQ is the latest in ENR's mission to inform its audience, employ technology, and provide leadership for the construction industry. Last year, ENR launched seven new regional editions in print and online to answer audience requests for more local information, and established the Construction Industry Confidence Index to provide quarterly benchmarks on the state of the industry. ENR's mobile alerts were among the first in the industry among B-to-B media. ENR has recently won several industry awards, notably two Jesse H. Neal Awards for excellence in journalism, including Best Website and Best Technical Content.
