Design and writing services available! Our design and writing team will work with you to achieve your advertising goals within our magazine. 

Civil + Structural Engineer Media is passionate about being the best source of news and information for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industries.  What started as two separate print publications over a decade ago has transformed into both a digital magazine and website that generates an average of 80,000 visitors a month.

As the way our readers consume their news changes, so do we.  According to Engineering.com, 84 percent of all Engineering content is consumed digitally.  Our brand has evolved to reflect this new method of consumption by adding media to our platform.  We are no longer a print publication but rather a multi-platform resource to the AEC industry.  We are a comprehensive media outlet.

Our redesigned website is structured around 8 topic-specific channels:  Environmental & Sustainability, Structures & Buildings, Transportation & Infrastructure, Water & Stormwater, Business News, Software & Technology, Unmanned Systems, and Surveying.  Each piece of news and article is contained within one or more of these channels, making the information more accessible to our readers.  Channel sponsorships are currently available for 2020.

We have also returned the popular Civil + Structural Engineer Media weekly e-newsletter.  This platform has a high delivery open rate and advertisers can utilize our unique “e-newsletter takeover” to further enhance their content.

Our services are adaptable to the needs of interested advertisers.  As we move through 2020, Civil + Structural Engineer Media is looking forward to delivering your advertising needs and letting your content shine on each of our media platforms.

ENEWS TAKEOVER

Become an E-newsletter Sponsor and achieve 100% SOV!

Our sales team put our heads together to come up with a clever plan for our advertisers to capture a very targeted list of prospects through our already existing database. What we came up with next was almost too good to be true. The results have been nothing short of impressive and client satisfaction has been exciting.

The process begins with your banner ads appearing on our C+S enewsletter, this will be the first of two. You will own 100% of the ad space. Our C+S formatting will otherwise stay the same.

The ads you will receive on E-newsletter #1 are:

  • Leaderboard
  • Advertorial
  • Advertorial Image
  • Medium Rectangle
  • Video block

One week after sending E-newsletter #1, we will deploy E-newsletter #2 to a list that was generated of engaged readers from E-newsletter #1. Engaged = those who clicked on any of the above ads/advertorials.

E-newsletter #2 will be 100% your content. The formatting will be what is typical of a dedicated email blast; an event announcement, an ebook download, a product push, etc.

A week after E-newsletter #2 has been sent, we will provide you with a complete list of those who opened the email.

The process we developed weeds out the uninterested parties, leaving a thorough list of interested and qualified leads.

Project Management for AEC Professionals – ONE DAY SEMINAR

AEC Professionals are extensively trained on technical skills and less so on how to manage a team. However, with rapidly evolving technology, increasing fee pressure, multi-generational teams, and many other challenges, effective team leadership in project environments has proven to be the key to thriving in the high-pressure AEC environment. These challenges, coupled with the fact that project managers are often left to learn on the job, leaves new and seasoned leaders left to use a trial and error style team leadership that is prone to missteps. Each decision made can impact profit, risk, and client-relationships.

CEO Roundtable Retreat – TWO DAY SEMINAR

The CEO Roundtable Retreat is a unique opportunity for AEC firm leaders to engage and interact with industry peers to discuss current issues facing firms today, explore industry trends and next practices, and confront the biggest challenges they face leading their firms.  Zweig Group’s CEO Chad Clinehens, PE, moderates the program guiding group conversations, encouraging integration and networking, and ensuring attendees gain valuable insight, new ideas and tools – and a new network of colleagues – to foster effective leadership at their respective firms.
