Hansford becomes NCE’s seventh editor

Mark Hansford has been appointed editor of NCE, becoming the seventh to lead the brand since its launch in 1972.

Hansford, a qualified civil engineer, left consultant Atkins in 2000 to join NCE as a reporter.

He has reported from the scene of a host of international engineering disasters including a bridge collapse in northern Portugal, a tunnel fire in Baltimore and tsunami-struck Sri Lanka. In 2003 he was the first construction reporter into Iraq following the second Gulf War. Reports such as these have earned him awards including IBP News Reporter of the Year in 2003. He is currently IBP Construction/Infrastructure Writer of the Year.

Promoted to deputy editor in 2011 he is now steering NCE’s transformation from print-based UK magazine to a truly global digital information source for ICE members and other infrastructure professionals.

Hansford will continue to be supported by news editor Alexandra Wynne who is re-examining NCE’s content to ensure it is providing the essential information to help engineers deliver infrastructure fit for the future.

The team will also be supported by the return of Dave Parker as technical editor emeritus.

Parker was technical editor of NCE for 12 years before leaving in 2006 to become a freelance author.

He is a former visiting professor of civil engineering at Queen’s University Belfast, and during his time at NCE successfully campaigned for the establishment of the CROSS confidential reporting scheme.
