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

From the news pages, we look at an annual study of construction costs in different countries around the world from consultant EC Harris and discuss the acquisition of Shaw Group by Chicago Bridge & iron for US$ 3 billion.

This month also marks International Construction's 50th birthday and we discuss some of the changes and trends in the industry over the last five decades.

Other features look at trends in the high-rise construction sector and there is also a look at the latest models for developed and emerging countries in the wheeled loader market.
