A major supplement

20th Century civil engineering

Civil engineers have surpassed themselves in the 20th century, pushing forward the boundaries of what is possible. They have a right to feel proud of their achievements over the last 100 years and New Civil Engineer plans to celebrate them with a prestigious supplement to be circulated with the 11 November issue.

The supplement will look at how infrastructure schemes, conceived and built by civil engineers have changed the expectations and lifestyles of entire populations for the better.

The 20th century has been the century of transport; and the supplement will look at how civil engineers have worked to allow people to travel vast distances in hours rather than days or weeks.

Water supply, sanitation, power and communications have been transformed by British engineers, not just in the UK, but all over the world. The supplement will look at what has been achieved and how.

We will be focusing on the bridges, the buildings, the tunnels, roads, railways and airports, and the British civil engineers themselves that have revolutionised everyday life in the last 100 years.

Help us create a supplement that is a fitting tribute to the achievements of Britain's civil engineers in the 20th Century.
