Since 1971 until today, the journal is published under the name of "CONSTRUCTII" ("Civil Engineering").
Since 1992, INCERC, the National Institute for Building Research, is the exclusive editor of the journal CONSTRUCTII. During the same year, the journal was registered and received the ISSN code (ISSN 1221 - 2709), which is owned by the journal until the present day.
In the above structure, the journal CONSTRUCTII was published together with specialized supplements:

Since 2006, the journal CONSTRUCTII is issued under its acknowledged name, with the mention New Series, (year LIV). In its new form, the journal is issued twice a year. The papers are published in a bilingual system (Romanian, English), compliant to the layout of international indexed scientific journals.
Starting with No. 1 / 2009, year LVII, until 2011, the journal was edited in partnership by the National Institute for Research and Development in Construction, Urban Planning and Sustainable Spatial Development URBAN-INCERC, INCERC Bucharest Branch and the General Association of Engineers in Romania, AGIR.
