Our Approach

Now in its 13th year, award-winning Colorado Construction & Design (CCD) is Colorado’s leading construction news and marketing magazine. CCD conducted reader research upon launching the magazine and readers told us what they most wanted to see. With that, we have created and delivered the kind of news they can use in a timely, organized manner.

CCD is the official publisher for AGC Colorado and Media Partner with numerous trade organizations including AIA Colorado, ACEC, CRMCA, IECRM, PCI Mountain States, CAMPC, RMMI, AISC, RMSCA, SMACNA, ULI, USGBC, SMPS Colorado and others. CCD serves as an information sharing resource for architects, engineers and general contractors, and subcontractors (the AEC and MEP industry) in Colorado.

CCD is direct mailed every six weeks to major AEC Colorado industry decision makers including real estate developers, business owners and government officials including those at the municipal, county, state and federal levels. CCD is also mailed to school districts, economic development agencies, chambers of commerce, Mayoral offices, the Governor and leading AEC Colorado industry association members and executives. In other words, we reach those individuals who are most likely to contract for construction and design services.

Take CCD with you on the go! View recent and past issues online on desktop computers and mobile devices. We reach more than 50,000 construction and design industry professionals in print and welcome thousands more unique and returning visitors to ccdmag.com monthly.
