BNP Media is pleased to announce the launch of Site Prep Magazine as an independent publication effective in January 2007.

Following three years of successfully offeringSite Prepas a supplemental publication, BNP Media 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 Prep will 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 Prep will be unique by presenting a heavy technology focus on the work site," said Publisher Dan Murfey. "Site Prep began as a way for our surveying and geomatics audience to connect on-site preparation with GPS/machine control as a focal point. But as Site Prep evolved, we've quickly realized the entire site construction and specifying community needs this information."

"We've also determined that Site Prep's editorial mix will expand," said Editor Kim Jensen. "While machine control will remain a regular topic, there is so much more we need to cover, such as 3D modeling, machine ergonomics, operator training, and equipment updates."

Site Prep's launch issue will publish in January, including bonus distribution at the World of Concrete and the National Utility Contractors Association Show.
