"To have our designs featured in Bd&e is our greatest ambition; we know that the magazine is enthusiastically studied in all major engineering and construction firms around the world. No other magazine covers the international bridge scene as comprehensively as the Bd&e, and none maintains a similar unbiased balance between technical and aesthetic issues."

"It is a pleasure to receive a high quality publication for which the staff frequently perform their own research, including site visits, and report what they see accurately and without any apparent bias. It is important for those of us in the bridge engineering profession to be well informed about what is happening around the globe: Bd&e does this for us magnificently."

Bd&e is probably the most popular magazine in the office. Certainly it always seems that someone has borrowed the issue I am looking for! The journal is very well presented and covers interesting international projects in sufficient depth to be a useful reference source. Together with the website I find it good for keeping up to date with what is going on.”
