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.

Eight Ways to Prioritize Reducing Embodied Carbon in Buildings

Pressure is mounting for the building and construction industry to become more sustainable. Designing more energy-efficient buildings is part of that, but reducing embodied carbon is a more pressing — and often challenging — issue.

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.

5 Unique Applications of IoT in Construction

Historically, construction has not been the most tech-centric industry, but that is changing. In light of lengthy delays and skyrocketing costs, more firms are turning toward technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) for help.

Paving Technologies Impact Industry in 2022

The last two years have been challenging for members of the construction industry. While this might seem frustrating, the environment has provided a platform for invention and innovation.
