Herndon, VA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) re-launched its popular Interlocking Concrete Pavement Magazine as Interlock Design. Interlock Design sports a fresh new look, improved content and a more robust online version that will increase readers’ knowledge of technical considerations, inspire the creative application for interlocking concrete pavement and permeable interlocking concrete pavements and highlights industrial, commercial, institutional and municipal projects. The magazine also communicates construction best practices and association resources to design professionals and contractors.
“The re-design is visually more appealing and provides focused content for design professionals and contractors in printed and online formats,” said ICPI Executive Director, Charles A. McGrath, CAE. Interlock Design is also planning to broaden its scope of features. The online version compliments the print magazine by offering up-to-date industry news and events through the website and features expanded content and in-depth editorial on the latest industry trends, plus noteworthy projects. The website will utilize technology such as interactive podcasts and video interviews with design professionals and contractors.
Readers will get their first look at the revamped quarterly magazine in August. The premiere issue features “Green Alleys”, which looks at how three U.S. cities are using permeable interlocking concrete pavement in their alleyways to reduce stormwater runoff. The issue also highlights green alley design considerations, a report on how one state transportation agency developed a specification and design guide for permeable interlocking concrete pavements and much more. David Smith, ICPI Technical Director and Rob Bowers, P.Eng, Director of Engineering will continue to write leading technical articles on design and construction.
Jessica Chase, CAE, ICPI Director of Marketing and Membership said the re-launched magazine will establish “a stronger connection with our readers” and “a clean modern look.” The new magazine, created in cooperation with publishing house, GLC Custom Media based in Chicago, has expanded opportunities for advertisers and plans in place to increase its 24,000 circulation over the next year.
Industry professionals are encouraged to contact ICPI with new product information and trends as well as unique projects for consideration as features in the magazine.
