Free Magazines

Construction Industry magazines and publications

Just because something is free, it does not mean that it is part of our throw away culture like the spam we get all too often through our physical and digital letter boxes. Publishers foster a wealth of informative and useful information on new technologies, materials as well as emerging manufacturers and installers of ground breaking products. They showcase inspirational design from the smallest details to the largest building, and everything in-between.


Ezines offer the best of all worlds in the provision of all the above content, that can be read anywhere, any time, and best of all the ones listed below are FREE.

Just click on any of the thumb nails and you can read the latest issue, and, or register to receive each new publication direct to your mail box.

If you prefer the smell and touch of the real publication many publishers also offer an option to post you out a hard copy. But don’t worry because that will usually be free as well.

Refurb Projects Journal was launched in 1987 to cater for the expanding repair, maintenance, improvement and Refurb sectors of the UK Building Industry. Total value of the R & M market in 2010 was estimated to be £33 billion with estimates for 2011, 2012 and 2013 rising to £34 billion.

A massive market and with new build activity falling, refurbishment in the Health, Leisure, Education and Social Housing sectors will be the mainstay of the industry.

Also, the ‘Green Deal’ will create work and revenue, with 26 million homes being encouraged to reduce their carbon footprint and increase energy efficiency. This will also apply to the commercial building sector.

Sustainability and the protection of the built environment are essential ingredients of the refurbishment market, and Refurb Projects Journal is a leader in reporting and promoting these ideals.

Well aware of the need to provide on-line services, Refurb Projects has launched this new site that will carry news, views, projects, invite opinions and be a source of news and information available on-line and by smart phone.
