International Construction September 2011 Podcast (audio)

09 September 2011

In this month's Podcast, iC editor Chris Sleight and Deputy Editor Helen Wright look at some of the key stories in the September issue of the magazine.

Key news stories this month include analysis of a new global construction costs survey published by EC Harris, while in business news we discuss Lafarge's sale of its worldwide gypsum businesses for proceeds of US$ 2.25 billion.

We also discuss two of this month's features, with a look at the wheeled loader sector, where new engine emission laws have driven a huge number of new launches this year. Meanwhile in the surveying sector, manufacturers are working on making their instruments easier to use and more rugged, while targeting first-time buyers with entry-level prices and packages.
