June 2019 issue

As Winston Churchill once said “there’s nothing wrong with change…if it is in the right direction”. Evolution in the industry is fundamental to growth and success. In the construction industry, we’re forever seeing products and legislation adapt to meet the future demands of buildings and their users. Positive changes promote efficiency and can improve aspects such as health and safety and our carbon footprint.

As one of the industry’s most regarded construction titles in the sector, FC&A too has just gone through a period of change. The team here are excited to announce FC&A and the group’s wider portfolio of magazines are now under new ownership having been acquired by Cross Platform Media.

As its name suggests, Cross Platform Media has a dedicated approach to being fully responsive to the way people receive and digest news. From printed publications to websites and apps, these platforms cater for all reader habits, whether you’re after news on the go or would prefer a magazine to read at your leisure.

The new ownership promises fresh opportunities for our loyal customer base and regular readers and we look forward to sharing more with you as the year progresses.

In the meantime, I am delighted to share with you yet another jam-packed issue of inspiring case studies, advisory articles and thought-leadership comment. In this month’s edition, we unveil the striking new home for the collections and records belonging to the Imperial War Museums. We also profile the successful refurbishment of the Irish Hunger Memorial in New York which benefitted from a full waterproofing system from Kemper System.

Elsewhere, we bring you the latest talking points on mental health in construction, why military leavers best suit the sector and we discuss the challenges faced in the high-rise buildings market.

I hope you enjoy this issue. Don’t forget, you can also access all of the magazine’s features, product news and supplier information on FC&A’s user-friendly and engaging website. Fully responsive, the website allows you to read all the latest stories on-the-go either on your phone or tablet. Simply search www.fca-magazine.com.
