The Top 10 Construction Safety Technologies Protecting Workers
The construction sector is among the most dangerous in the world, but that doesn’t mean firms must accept high levels of risk. New construction safety technology provides several ways to address and minimise worksite hazards, pushing the industry toward a safer future.
How to Fix Concrete Flooring Challenges
Concrete floors are popular choices as they are extremely durable and long-lasting if installed, cured, and finished properly. However, issues can arise during or after installation, and construction professionals must know how to diagnose and fix these concrete flooring challenges. This article outlines some crucial steps to take when addressing challenges in slab-on-grade concrete floors, including those with polished or broom finishes.
Design Ideas for the Built World
Computer-aided design (CAD) models are the building blocks for numerous design projects. However, once you create a CAD design, you might want to make something new that contains elements of the initial model. That’s an option called branching — so named because you use the first CAD model as a starting point and branch off it to make other things.
3 Ways to Track Construction Assets Using Ultra-Wideband
Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology uses high-frequency radio waves and operates across a broad portion of the spectrum. Although some of its earliest uses relate to the military, people are increasingly interested in using it for asset tracking in construction.
Paving Technologies Impact Industry in 2022
