NCE’s website nce.co.uk had a fourth successive record month in April, with more than 78,000 people visiting the site for the latest civil engineering news, jobs and in-depth reports on major projects.
In total more than 310,000 pages were viewed, with NCE’s as-it-breaks news coverage proving the biggest draw.
But with the new-look NCE now two months old, in-depth information on the biggest projects is proving increasingly popular. Last month 15% of all traffic was relating to our coverage of London’s £16bn Crossrail scheme.
Our Crossrail coverage is simply market leading, with news of the appointment of Bechtel as project delivery partner breaking on www.nce.co.uk hours ahead of trade and national media competition.
But it is not just about breaking news first. We are also first with in-depth analysis and big interviews. Bechtel’s Crossrail boss Cliff Mumm’s first – and to date only - industry interview broke first on nce.co.uk.
And we are constantly striving to improve. We know that our business coverage is highly sought after so from this week we will be providing a weekly analysis of the performance of consultants’ share prices in association with City analyst Numis Securities. Make sure you don’t miss NCE’s Share Tracker update by signing up to our free Friday business news alert.
And we know that this is a difficult time for those unfortunately out of work, so we have teamed up with recruitment specialist Hays Civil & Structural to offer invaluable careers advice.
