Construction continues to find itself in the spotlight, given scrutiny over climate change net zero targets and post-COVID infrastructure development projects, which means demand for insightful and topical content is rising. Here are our Top 10 titles which are setting the standards at home and abroad.
1. Construction Global
For a truly international perspective, Construction Global tops the list. With its wealth of news, analysis, features, comment pieces and Top 10s, covering every key sector, industry executives never miss a beat. The digital-first publication benefits from close synergies with other leading technology titles in the growing Biz Clik Media Group stable.
Strengths Best for all round news and features content
2. Construction News
Construction News has a head start over many of its rivals – and not just because of its search engine-friendly title, nor its remarkable history, stretching back to 1871. Its web pages are packed with information on every conceivable housing and construction issue, though its focus is restricted to the UK.
Strengths strong heritage, breaking news and industry insights
3. Construction Week Online
A go-to site for projects, tenders and contract news in the MENA region. Neat layouts and ease of navigation add to the site’s appeal, and the brand’s appeal is bolstered by awards, conferences and events. Dubai will soon have its moment in the sun when it hosts the delayed Expo 2020 in October, where eye-catching country pavilions, forward-thinking designs and novel technologies will be on display.
Strengths Based in Dubai, its MENA coverage is strong
4. Inside Construction
Blending news, opinions and research, Inside Construction keeps its fingers on the engineering and construction pulse in Australia. Alongside the staple contracts and tenders, it has dedicated sections to cranes & lifting, and demolition & recycling.

5. Construction Review Online
This neatly designed website tracks major construction developments throughout Africa, and project leads focus primarily on Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Nigeria. Bonus points for being available in a wide range of languages (menu top right).
Strengths Useful resource on African construction and engineering
6. Construction Europe
From Siberia to Romania, Construction Europe’s remit is as broad as it’s long. The Home Page’s engaging picture-slide feature is among the site’s attractions and there are sections dedicated to equipment and Contech, among others. Useful for continental-wide insights.
Strengths Covers large area with news and longer reads
7. Property Week
Property Week ticks a wide range of boxes, from news, financial insights and insights to law, jobs and events, and social media channels are neatly lined along the top of the home page. The RESI Awards, which it organises, celebrate the residential property sector and its successes over the past year.
Strengths Constantly updated content and professional website design
8. Housing Today
Housing Today helps housing professionals navigate a rapidly changing housing landscape. This is important as the boundaries between public and private housing provision are becoming blurred, with housing associations building homes for sale and private housebuilders building homes for rent.

Much like the FT, no sector escapes Bloomberg’s editorial microscope, with stories featured in Businessweek and Bloomberg News. As well as having its finger on the market pulse, across everything from commodities to currencies, Bloomberg blends market, economic and political analysis – and in these multimedia times, the rolling schedules of Bloomberg TV adds another dimension.
Strengths Breaking news and industry research reports
10. Financial Times
In these times of energy and construction-related climate concerns, the Financial Times is placing more company execs under scrutiny and analysing everything from supply shortages to Florida’s ‘condo politics’.
