I congratulate the Bentley team for this impressive achievement.”

About Construction Computing
Construction Computing is the only U.K. magazine to focus specifically on IT solutions for the construction industry. The title is published six times a year and is combined with CAD User AEC Magazine. It has a circulation of just over 10,000 copies per issue.
The magazine’s editorial purpose is to provide information about all aspects of construction IT product and service use across the whole range of construction areas. Editorial content is placed in a construction company and construction project context. For example, how will any specific IT component improve the course of a particular construction project, and how will it improve the performance of the construction company and its relationship with the client? Content is presented so that IT can be shown to provide real construction business benefits such as increased profitability, lower costs, and faster project execution.
