There is something so special about opening up a magazine where you get to read about all the latest construction trends, stunning buildings that completed construction and other news about the industry. It is something I used to love doing when I was younger. For a while, I felt as though magazines in this industry had been lagging behind what other industries were producing. It is why I decided to start my own.
It was a daunting task. I did not have any prior experience with starting a magazine. But I went and found some great help. The main reason why our magazine is such a huge success is because we have some great editors. These are the guys who are responsible for the wonderful work that is put out to our readers every few weeks. And it is them who deserve all the credit.
A key reason why I see our magazine as different is because we cover more than the usual stories. Yes, we will have in-depth profiles on the major stories that are making the rounds. It is a given. But we also do a lot of profiles on local stories. We want to make sure that we are staying close to our roots. Many of our readers come from the Pembroke Pines area and we want to make sure they are getting something out of our content.
We are also excited to tell everyone about a new section to our magazine that is coming up in the next few months. We will be conducting interviews with real construction workers, contractors and other professionals from the industry. The goal of these profiles is to give our readers a look at the people who are the backbone of this industry.
Instead of focusing our profiles on CEOs and owners, we want to dig deeper. We want to learn about and hear from the people who are in the frontlines, working on driveways, office buildings and skyscrapers!
