NCE interim editor named construction/infrastructure writer of the year

NCE’s interim editor Mark Hansford was last week named Construction/Infrastructure Writer of 2013 at the prestigious International Building Press annual awards.

Hansford took the title in the newly-introduced category, in what the judges said was a growing area and a category that was hotly contested.

The judges thought the overall standard was very high with technical complexities explained very well. However, judges in particular praised one of Hansford winning submissions on Moscow Spartak’s new football stadium.

“His article on the Russian stadium was a technical tour de force,” they said. “It explained the byzantine Russian codes very well and really got under the skin of the project, which could not have been easy.”

Overall, they said Hansford’s winning articles were “all interesting, very well written and explained technical subjects simply and without any jargon”.

Shortlisted in the category was NCE sister title Construction News news editor Tom Fitzpatrick. The judges said Fitzpatrick’s articles were “written with great clarity, well researched and highly informative”.
