About Us

At Construction in Focus, we take great pride in delivering a comprehensive view of the construction industry, month after month. We keep our readers up to date on the latest news and events in the industry, as well as highlighting the nation’s leading construction, design, and architectural firms. We conduct in-depth, one-on-one interviews with top representatives in these firms, delving beneath the surface to uncover the true stories of their successes in the field.

In our pages you will also find informative features on Australia’s most prominent organisations, institutes, associations, and government departments whose actions and policies have a direct impact on the construction industry. We profile the latest in green building trends and technology, and take a closer look at Australia’s iconic buildings of historical and cultural significance.

We sit down with Managers, Founders, CEOs, and State Ministers to get at the heart of the story. And through our competitive and comprehensive advertising scheme, we can get your story out as well.

Yet what, exactly, constitutes ‘smart’?
