Mark Buckshon is the publisher and interim editor of Washington Construction News. He is also president of the Construction News and Report Group of Companies. He combines a journalism and business background, and has published construction trade publications for more than 30 years, after an earlier career in journalism, which culminated when he lived through the transition from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe in 1978-80 as a sub-editor for the Bulawayo Chronicle and a correspondent for a Canadian news service.
Washington Construction News started as a monthly newspaper in 2000. It continues as a website updated with a weekly eletter providing focused local architectural, engineering and construction news for the District and suburbs in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland.
