Browse the new Building web site and you will find the best online news, jobs and data in the construction industry

Welcome to the new-look Building web site. There are now a host of new features including a rolling news service, daily opinion columns and regular briefings on markets, costs and construction law.

The brand new daily news will feature breaking stories throughout the day and will keep you informed of everything in the construction sector from boardroom upheavals to the latest from Whitehall.

Industry experts will keep you abreast of all the latest issues in our daily opinion column, and a diary of upcoming events will keep you informed of the best conferences, seminars and black-tie dos on the calendar.

Our new social diary Offsite will also keep an eye on who’s doing what, where and with who. If you have an event that you would like Building to attend drop us an invite and we will record the occasion in words and pictures.

The full text of all the stories and features in Building magazine will now be available as soon as the magazine is published on Friday and our new archive search will allow users to quickly retrieve over 45,000 stories from the Builder Group archive.

A pictorial index of Building magazine covers will also enable users to browse back issues online. Users will also be able to search Building’s online Picture Library, which has over 2000 images of some of the best buildings in the world.

The Building web site will be continually improved and updated. In the coming months look out for a competition on the Olympics, live web cams recording the progress of the biggest construction projects around the UK, and live web chats with leading industry figures.

This week all the web site content will be free to access. From next Monday subscribers to Building magazine will be able to enter the web site using the reader number printed on the plastic bag containing the magazine.
