Editorial opportunity: Projects and products

February 27, 2013 |
Julie S. Higginbotham

I'm delighted to join the BD+C team as Senior Editor, and I'm so looking forward to meeting many of our readers and learning about your work. 

One of my duties will be coordinating our Drawing Board, New Projects Portfolio, Products at Work, and Product Solutions departments. We're always open to your information, showcasing the best of what you do. In general, we're aiming for a broad mix of items, seeking a balance of project types, locations, features, and methods (for instance, new vs. renovated).

Our Drawing Board department features work that's not yet completed, and our New Projects Portfolio comprises facilities that have been occupied within the past year or so. Products at Work consists of stories about products being used in real-world projects to meet specific needs and solve problems, whereas Product Solutions is a more typical "new products" department.

We're always interested in your suggestions for any of these departments. E-mail them directly to me at jhigginbotham@sgcmail.com. Make sure to include at least one high-resolution image, and (if applicable) information about the Building Team that created the project (architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and so on). It improves your odds of being selected if your description (preferably, 125 to 200 words) clearly explains what makes the project or product special and worthy of our readers' attention.

I look forward to hearing from you.
