What is This Is Construction?
Developing creative solutions to complex construction challenges often goes unrecognised. That’s why This Is Construction was created - to showcase the unsung construction projects of Australia.
This Is Construction is a construction media company bringing audiences inside Australia’s construction projects to share, inspire, captivate and educate.
Created especially for construction professionals, This Is Construction delves into the complex technicalities of projects exploring the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of design and construction decisions and methodologies. We provide the reader with a unique, behind-the-scenes insight into Australia’s buildings and infrastructure by sharing the stories of the industry’s brightest minds.
We do this by allowing construction industry companies to submit their projects to the site so we can create journalistic articles about them with a focus on how Australia’s smartest construction professionals are using creative and lateral thinking to create innovative solutions to build Australia’s buildings and infrastructure.
This Is Construction is a place where companies in the construction industry can build a portfolio of their work allowing them to demonstrate their capabilities, increase their online presence and attract new clients and customers.
..because even the smallest projects deserve recognition.

Q: What does it cost if my project is published?
A: Nothing. We pick the best stories and create the articles for free, but the chance of your project getting published is subject to demand. You may also hire us to create the article for you, which guarantees that it is published on our site and allows you to publish the story on your own website. Find out more about our services here.
Q: What sort of information should I submit about my project?
A: The submission form contains information on the content we require as part of your submission. These include key facts and figures, the challenges faced, any creative solutions that were developed, etc.
Q: Can I submit a completed article?
A: Yes, you may submit a completed article, so long as it complies with our project article publishing guidelines and it is not duplicated elsewhere online.
Q: Who owns the copyright on the published article?
A: If This Is Construction produces the article for free using your project information, the article is property of This Is Construction as per our Terms & Conditions.
But, if you submit a completed article and we publish it, you retain ownership of the article and it is published by This Is Construction under a ‘non-exclusive distribution agreement’.
If you hire us to create the article for you, you retain ownership of the article and can publish it wherever you like.
Q: Can I republish the article from This Is Construction on my website?
A: Unfortunately we don’t allow republishing of our articles unless we create them under a paid engagement, as per our Terms & Conditions. We encourage you to include a snippet (30-50 words) of the article on your website with a link to the full article on This Is Construction.
However, if you hire us to create the article for you, then you retain ownership of the article and can publish it on your website and wherever else you like.
Q: Can I submit completed articles on my website to be published on This Is Construction?
A: No, we only accept articles that are exclusive to This Is Construction. We suggest you rewrite the article so that it isn’t classified by Google as duplicate content. We do, however, allow a select number of companies to republish their existing articles on This Is Construction. Get in touch to discuss republishing your existing articles.
Q: Can I review the article before it’s published?
A: Unfortunately not. However, we will immediately notify you once the article is published so you can check for accuracy and we will make changes accordingly.
Q: How do I get a company page and can anyone get one?
A: Any company involved in the construction sector can get a company page. You must have an article published about one of your projects or in the Knowledge Hub to make your company page active. We will create a company page for you after your first article is published. So to attain a company page you must submit a project article or project information and be selected for publishing or submit a technical article into the Knowledge Hub. Alternatively, you may hire us to create an article for you.
Q: But won’t people steal my ideas?
A: The most successful companies and consultants, not just in the construction sector, share their knowledge generously online to demonstrate their expertise to potential customers. This helps them seal their position as leaders in their field and garner new clients whilst charging more for their in-demand services.
The upside of attracting interest, building brand sentiment and gaining clients/customers by openly sharing your expertise and demonstrating your ability is much greater than the downside of someone potentially stealing your ideas.
Q: What’s the catch? How do you make money? Will you charge us in the future?
A: There are no hidden charges and no fees will be introduced in future. Submitting articles and having a company profile on This Is Construction will be free forever. We make money by providing sponsorship opportunities, content marketing services and advertising on the site.
