Bigger and better

New Civil Engineer has revamped its website this week to bring you better, more useful information online.

When NCE launched in January 2000 we were at the height of the dot-com boom. The world wide web was going to change the way we lived, worked, played and shopped. Paper was out, screens were in.

Of course five months later Boo. com, the funky e-retailer, went bust and led the collapse of the dot-com bubble. Thousands more have followed it into oblivion since.

Virtual millionnaires have handed back the Ferrari keys and returned to their desk jobs.

Yet while all this was going on has continued to serve NCE readers with information. Information that supports, reflects and enhances the paper magazine. Information that helps you do your job better, develop your career and broaden your professional knowledge.

And all this will continue. This week we have revamped to make it easier to use and introduced new sections to help you. And we've added more.

We have never forgotten that, for the vast majority of NCE readers, the prime means of grabbing your weekly fix of industry news, views and features - and let us not forget ads of course - is the paper magazine that lands on your doormat or desk each Thursday.

As we head rapidly towards 2003, has become the logical extension to your weekly professional read. Just like the magazine it is a well structured and easy to access source of information, well sign-posted and easy to search.

Online has organised information into easy to search topics with up-to-date background briefings and links to all the articles carried in the magazine on that subject. We also have project specials, legal briefings, company profiles and sector reports, to support the magazine articles plus a fully searchable magazine archive and company directory.

The service is a vital tool for all civil engineers and for the last three years we have made this information available free as part of your weekly magazine and access to many parts of the site will remain free.

But to enable us to continue to develop this service and to make it even more useful in your work, we will soon be making a small charge for a access to key parts of - for information that does more than just support the magazine content.
