Following three years of successfully offeringSite Prepas a supplemental publication, BNP Media (Stone World's parent company) is pleased to announce the title's launch as an independent publication effective in January 2007.Site Prepwill be published six times annually and joins BNP Media's family of 40 trade magazines, including 20 in the construction field. The launch follows the publication of eight supplement editions, extensive market research and field visits to construction sites and equipment manufacturers.

Site Prepwill be written for professionals involved with construction site preparation, including grading/excavating/demolition/landscape contractors, site specifiers/planners, and heavy equipment dealers. Initial circulation will be 30,000.

“Site Prepwill be unique by presenting a heavy technology focus on the work site,” said publisher Dan Murfey. “Site Prepbegan as a way for our surveying and geomatics audience to connect on site preparation, with GPS/machine control a focal point. But asSite Prepevolved, we've quickly realized the entire site construction and specifying community needs this information.”
