By Chris Sleight08 May 2012

In this month's podcast, iC editor Chris Sleight and deputy editor Helen Wright look at some of the key stories in the May 2012 issue of the magazine.

In the news pages we discuss Bovis Lend Lease's admission that it over-billed clients in New York over a ten-year period. There is also an update on the problems SNC-Lavalin has seen with its operations in Libya.

This month's business pages look Chinese manufacturer XCMG's acquisition of Germany's Schwing Stetter.

From this month's features, we discuss some of the latest trends in road building and road building equipment, where there have been numerous new launches over the last few months. We also look at new developments in the concrete construction sector.

Finally, we take a look at some of the new machines and innovations that caught our eye at last month's Intermat exhibition in Paris, France.
