Editorial Guidelines

Modern Contractor Solutions is a national construction magazine focusing on relevant topics for day-to-day operations of the commercial, general, and concrete contractor. Articles are concise, getting right to the point, which is preferred by on-the-go contractors dealing with busy schedules. In addition to Industry News, Product Releases, and the Trend Report, each issue of the magazine features the same sections:

  • Project Profiles                                                     
  • Equipment Solutions                       
  • Environmental Solutions               
  • Management Solutions                  
  • Software Solutions                            
  • Legal Solutions
  • Technology Solutions                      
  • Safety Solutions                                   
  • Maintenance Solutions

These same sections in every issue comprise the editorial calendar. This allows flexibility to ebb and flow with the construction industry and focus on timely content versus waiting for a specific topic tied to a specific issue.
