We Are Back With a Brand New Platform and It’s All About YOU
After a 3 month hiatus from publishing, we are excited to announce the launch of This Is Construction 2.0 - a new platform that allows companies in the industry to submit their projects and build a portfolio of their work.
Our new platform is all about all of YOU - the contractor, the engineer, the subbie, the product supplier, the contech company, the architect - anyone involved in the delivery of Australia’s buildings and infrastructure.
We want to showcase YOUR work, YOUR challenges, YOUR decisions.
So get involved!
There are some incredible projects going on around the country and our mission is to explore the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of design and construction decisions and methodologies used in these projects. We want to provide a unique, behind-the-scenes insight into Australia’s buildings and infrastructure and share the stories of the industry’s brightest minds - that means YOU!
So how does it work?
You can submit your project stories through our online portal here. You may submit either a completed article (in accordance with our Publishing Guidelines) or detailed information about your project so that we can create the article for you.
If your project information is detailed and compelling enough we will select your story to be written by us for free. We will create a company page for you if your story is published.
Sponsoring companies can also submit technical resources into our new Knowledge Hub - a place where professionals can learn and upskill. This is a valuable tool for companies to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise. Read more about our available sponsorships here.
Your company page links to your project stories, your technical articles and any news articles about you.
Why submit your projects?
We write journalistic articles about your projects - for free!
This Is Construction provides a platform to demonstrate your expertise and capability to the whole industry. You can build a portfolio of your best work and link to the impressive projects you have worked on.
Our project stories provide a platform for you to show the industry the challenges you’ve overcome and how you used lateral thinking to achieve project outcomes so you can position yourself as an industry leader.
What projects are we looking for?
We don’t just accept articles about the next Opera House - we want to hear about projects of all shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter how small, we are looking for projects that have some form of unique challenge, problem or solution.
Please reach out!
We rely on your participation to survive! So if you’ve got a good story, have an idea for a technical piece or have some news you want to share, then please reach out and talk to us!
Take a look around and explore our new platform. We will be continuing to upgrade the site to make it better for you so please feel free to drop us feedback on how we can improve your experience.
And most of all, we hope you enjoy our content!
