hange is inevitable, and in a year of change we bring you one more: a new homepage for ENR.com. It is another sign of our commitment to bring you the same quality ENR news, features, analysis and opinion articles in a cleaner, simpler design with an easy-to-use navigation scheme.
The phone-friendly navigation remains largely the same, with the topics and pull-down menus at the top of the page just below the ENR logo. Find specific project types here, or information on our latest events.
What’s gone is the three-column format and the headline stack on the left-hand side of the old page.
By scrapping the three-column format, we can better showcase some of our news with feature photography that helps bring stories to life. Those stories might include news about a new bridge or airport, a natural disaster, action in Washington, D.C., a signature Digging Deeper regional feature, a report on a river restoration or even innovative PPE. Still other times those stories will be about what’s happening up in the executive suite—or deep down in the foundations of a new skyscraper.
You will also find our most-viewed stories displayed on the homepage for the first time.
All the rest of ENR’s most important news, analysis and commentary will be displayed in the boxes below. These stories will include company news, contract awards, regulatory and risk-related events, which roll in at all hours from our staff and correspondents.
On the new, longer ENR.com home-page, ENR’s original videos, with projects and interviews, now appear below the other news and feature reports, as does ENR’s stack of aggregated news reports from the Associated Press and other media outlets. Further below you will find ENR’s past issues; just click on them to see the content inside in a digital magazine format.
At the bottom of the page you will find the links through which to contact ENR’s editorial and business staff, the editorial calendar, how to subscribe, and what you get with ENR’s Unlimited program. It also includes information on obtaining ENR newsletters, and much more. We hope you enjoy the new homepage and we look forward to refining it in the future to better meet your needs. n
