NEW CIVIL ENGINEER went on line today as part of the new internet-based service for the construction industry, launched by NCE publisher Emap Construct.
NCE Plus has been set up to complement the weekly magazine and together give civil engineers all the help they need to do their jobs effectively. It sits within the new Construction Plus portal alongside sites for NCE's sister titles Construction News and The Architects' Journal.
Key features of the new NCE Plus service are the rolling daily news service, the Knowledge Bank for technical tips and advice, job advertisements and product finder services. There will also be free access to NCE's archive of articles published over the last two years.
Although much of the information carried on the site will mirror that in the magazine, NCE Plus is not intended to replace the weekly magazine. NCE will continue to carry in-depth news, analysis and feature articles leaving the website to carry on where paper space runs out.
However, it is expected that the Construction Plus service will enable construction professionals to take advantage of the growing commercial potential of the internet. The construction, civil engineering and architectural communities created by the sites will enable clients and suppliers to be in closer touch with each other's business needs.
