In this month’s edition of Construction Global we spoke with Evan Tattershall, CEO of the Melbourne Metro Tunnel in Australia. The new metro link signifies how construction works will help improve and strengthen Melbourne's infrastructure against an ever increasing population, providing increased long-term advantages for the city.

Also featured in this month's edition is a piece on the ‘Iceberg Principle’, where President and co-founder of EquipmentShare Willy Schlacks spoke with Construction Global about contractors becoming misled in terms of cost and ownership when purchasing expensive equipment within construction and building, yet there is no way of measuring the long-term impacts. However, this is set to change.

Also included is our favourite buildings made out of wood, which have stood the test of time and have become popular tourist spots within the areas in which they are situated due to their complexity and significance within the regions. Wood has provided several advantages within construction throughout the ages, which is now being further utilised with cross-laminated timber, providing sustainable builds. In a bid to construct builds which are provide long-term benefits, modern construction workers are beginning to utilise this material in their works in a bid to lower their carbon footprint and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions

We sincerely hope you enjoy the issue, and as always, please tweet your feedback to @ConstructionGL
