There is almost unlimited potential in adaptive reuse and redevelopment, and rehabilitating historical buildings represents one of the most sustainable approaches to the design and construction of built space available to us, for several reasons. [1] LEED v4 for Building Design and Construction updated with addenda on July 2, 2018. [2]

Now in its 8th year, award-winning Colorado Construction & Design (CCD) is Colorado’s leading construction news and marketing magazine. [3]

KieranTimberlake designed the facility and Shawmut Design and Construction was the general contractor. [4] Each year judges at BD+C base their award selections on the design, engineering and construction quality and excellence of newly-built projects. [5] Primera collaborated with the project team through overlapping design and construction phases and continued through system acceptance and warranty. [5] Primera joined Goettsch Partners as the Architect of Record with Clark Construction serving as General Contractor in the early design phase to provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection services. [5]

Is the Canadian design and construction industry about to experience a radical, transformative and critical technological revolution? The answer, according to some industry leaders, is. [6]

A project by a team of UNC Charlotte architecture alumni at Little Diversified Architectural Consulting was named a finalist in the Metals in Construction Magazine 2018 Design Challenge. [7] Since 1998, School Construction News has been the news magazine devoted specifically to educational facility construction and operations. [8] An aerial view, taken this week, of the three buildings under construction that will comprise the Pacific Vista Commercial Center in Carlsbad, Calif. This Center is scheduled to start operating this fall. [4]

It is the only magazine that reaches the complete building team, including design firms, contractor/building firms and building owner/developer/management firms. [5] Select Newsletter: Construction Dive Topics covered: commercial, infrastructure, design, green, regulation, multifamily construction, and more. [9] In construction, while digitalization has successfully automated design, the disconnect between designing and making is ripe for an industrial revolution. [10] While innovative product manufacturers use technology to move from mass-production to mass-customization, the construction industry is only just picking up on Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for repetitive mass production of standardized components. [10] Rather than design components and have them made in remote factories to be delivered and then assembled onsite, Newtecnic facilitates the use of temporary construction labs where local skilled craftspeople using locally sourced materials deploy advanced production machinery. [10]

A 2016 report from the EPA shows that commercial and residential building operations account for 11% of all greenhouse-gas emissions in the U.S. Good design is green design, and architects have a responsibility to share best practices, including repurposing and upgrading existing buildings. [1] Our newly built McCormick Square Marriott Marquis project and our Wintrust Arena project were both honored with the top award in the annual awards program that recognizes projects that best exemplify the collaboration between owner, architect, engineer, and contractor to produce buildings that exhibit architectural and construction excellence. [5] Building construction and operation are major contributors to global warming. [1]

Building Design+Construction Magazine is owned by Scranton Gillette Communications, a fourth-generation family-owned business-to-business communications company. [5]

Building material manufacturer XLam has set the pace for a timber revolution in Australian construction, the Urban Developer reports, with production officially under way at their newly opened Cross Laminated Timber plant in Wodonga The facility measures 12,000sq m and was announced in 2016, when the $25 million project was originally conceived to fill a gap in the industry responding to the demand for a sustainable, easy-to-use and fast building solution. [11] The world’s tallest engineered timber office building has begun to take shape on Brisbane’s skyline, with construction of the 45-metre, 25 King project now nearly 70 per cent complete Property giant Lendlease is developing the building for the building’s owner, Melbourne-based ethical investment firm Impact Investment Group. [11]

The environmental implications of this change in construction methodology are significant to both the industry and society as waste from constructing and maintaining buildings starts to become a thing of the past. [10] When promoting the lightweight Dymaxion House in the 1920s, Buckminster Fuller asked prospective buyers, “How much does your house weigh?” The same question should now be asked about every building because each extra pound requires more energy and resources to manufacture, transport, and assemble, as well as to heat, cool, clean, and maintain after construction. [10] Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Building Cos.’ work hasn’t yielded any costly or schedule-delaying surprises that could affect the project’s tight, 30-month schedule. [9] This can happen when good ideas and engaged, upskilled people combine with exciting technologies to make the construction industry more agile, environmentally positive, and economically sustainable while producing aptly impressive buildings that enhance our cities and society. [10] As robots become more advanced, they will interact with construction labs, generating, moving, and installing both new and replacement building parts. [10]

Andrew Watts, FICE, FIED, FIET, FRSA, RIBA, is CEO of Newtecnic ( www.newtecnic.com ), an engineering design house that undertakes the engineering design of building structures, fades, and MEP installations in partnership with leading international developers, architects, and contractors. [10] Deploying modular and cassette fade design methodology means buildings can easily be modified to take advantage of new technologies as they arise. [10] Aimed at improving building performance, a new standard offers comprehensive guidance on energy modeling during design. [12]

The Little project, Living in the Wall, increases well-being by incorporating elements of active design (encouraging occupants to move throughout and engage with the building), biophilia (an appreciation of nature, with ubiquitous views of the outside, garden roofs, and garden rooms), circadian rhythm (broad access to natural daylight), and community (multiple indoor and outdoor gathering spaces). [7] The sepcific challenge was to design a curtain-wall system for a hypothetical 30-story building on a 2.65-acre riverfront site in Brooklyn, NY. [7]

CannonDesign worked with Benchmark Construction to develop a carefully coordinated development sequence: removing each bridge of the facility, only after the surrounding structure had been completed, which helped establish an alternative path of travel between the buildings. [13] SURFACES REPORTER is India’s 1st and only Interior Design and Architecture magazine dedicated to products and materials. [14]

[8] WELL Building Standard pioneer teams with architects to advance wellness innovations in the built environment. [4] SEG’s 12-person team works out of a historic commercial building that has achieved net zero energy using strategies that include waste heat recovery, natural ventilation, a photovoltaic roof system, and real-time energy-use monitoring. [4] The Golden State is leading the energy independence revolution with changes in building codes. [15]

Williams Company Building Division is serving as general contractor for the $28.5 million Boone High School Capital Renewal and renovation project now underway. [8] At the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Child, Teen & Family Center and Department of Psychiatry Building, patient waiting rooms are located adjacent to the central atrium in a highly visible corridor. [4]

Its nine-story atrium, surrounded by glass elevators, allowed the Building Team to redistribute the building’s weight loads and give the hotel more height. [4]

Sustainable Engineering Group will bolster its new owner’s design and planning abilities. [4] The NewSchool of Architecture & Design challenges and inspires all who enter its doors. [15]

North Ridgeville middle school, near Cleveland, uses a compartmentalized HVAC and plumbing design. [1] Based on the results of this year’s Top 40 Electrical Design Firms survey, 2017 was a year of slow but steady growth — with firms on the list bringing in a combined revenue total of $2.22 billion generated specifically from electrical. [16] Combined revenue growth slowed for electrical design firms on EC&M’s 2018 Top 40 list, but don?t mistake that for inactivity. [16] It’s time to unveil EC&M’s highly anticipated Top 40 electrical design firms list for 2018, ranked specifically. [16]

Primera was hired early in the design phase to provide LEED fundamental and enhanced commissioning services. [5]

The project is pursuing LEED Silver certification through the New Construction v3.0 rating system. [5] The Construction News and Report Group of Companies publishes regional and national publications, websites and e-letters for the architectural, engineering and construction community. [6] New technologies: How will they redefine the architectural, engineering and construction. [6]

Projects are also judged on how the building team (architects, engineers, contractors, CMs, subcontractors, building owners, developers, government entities, etc.) collaborates to overcome obstacles to make the project succeed. [5] Primera is pleased to announce that two of our projects recently received the Platinum Award in the 2018 Building Design+Construction (BD+C) Building Team Awards. [5]

In partnership with the Engineering Departments of Cambridge University, Newtecnic’s R&D team analyzes, develops, tests, validates, and specifies new building technologies and methods. [10] Because the building is a centerpiece of the city and it has been designed for a life of at least 60 years, the issues of automated cleaning, maintaining, and updating the building during this period have been central considerations since the project’s outset. [10] Rather than building a single-purpose DfMA factory, which requires years of operation to turn a profit, small flexible manufacturing assets are easy to scale through the building life cycle. [10]

Robots referencing the building’s 3D cloud-hosted digital-twin, in conjunction with GPS, can calculate routes and locations on the building fade. [10] Like a constantly updated digital user manual, all the information required to construct and operate buildings, and their interconnected machines and systems, can exist within the building’s 3D digital-twin simulation model. [10]

The three Building Product Disclosure and Optimization (BPDO) credits in LEED v4 are pushing the industry into new territory. [12] Many building owners and operators will, by these means, simply adapt, refresh, and renew buildings throughout their lives to suit contemporary needs. [10] Our remit also ensures that all building components and fabrications are quality assured before they are brought to the site. [10] Paula Melton and Peter Yost discuss their process of writing a feature article about building failure. [12] Applying first principles, appropriate technology, and thinking of buildings not just as a kit of parts but as systems that can change, develop, and adapt over time, their useful life can be extended while staying relevant for future generations. [10]

Fortive expects the construction software and data firm to generate $130 million this year and anticipates a 10% return on capital within five years. [9] The loan for the approximately $700 million, 67-story tower, which will be built in part by United Construction & Development, is the largest lent to a private project in the borough. [9] The project delivery method considered the “alternative” to design-bid-build is expected to represent 44% of construction spending. [9]

The merging and blending of these advances indicates that construction is on the cusp of a revolution, and I am proud that Newtecnic is in the vanguard of a technological movement that solves many of the cost, environmental, energy, logistics, and waste problems that the industry faces. [10] The construction industry’s move toward robotics and mass-customization brings designers and makers together for positive disruption within and beyond the industry. [10]

Taxpayer-funded construction initiatives are on pace to hit around $93.5 billion for roads and $72.5 billion for schools this year, for example, while prison spending is still rapidly being turned to the private sector. [9] The Construction Health and Safety Risk Cards which have been in circulation since last year have been digitised. [11] Construction has begun on Egypt’s shiny new capital city to ease the congestion of overpopulated capital Cairo, The Urban Developer reports Located 40 kilometres from Cairo, the US$45 billion ($60bn), yet-to-be-named city is set to replace the tired Cairo capital, with the government promising “a new lifestyle, new community and a new worldwide centre of attraction”. [11] Manhattan Construction Group continually ranks among the top construction service providers in the nation. [17] Use fewer cranes during construction and maintenance by deploying robots to do the heavy lifting in hazardous conditions. [10] Concepts for robots and drones are included together with manufacturing, construction, and disassembly instructions and methods. [10]

The introduction of digital technology makes construction as efficient as any advanced manufacturing process where precise component quantities are made to order. [10] Because these have assured quality and exacting specifications based on the as-built construction, they are guaranteed to match the structure and have predictable performance over a predetermined life cycle. [10]

Other projects around the world that the company is engineering are planned to deploy construction labs from the earliest stages of construction. [10]

Use automation to close the disconnect between design and manufacturing. [10] NZ Wood has announced Stage Two Finalists for the 2018 NZ Wood-Resene Timber Design Awards 2017 finalists “This is New Zealand’s only timber design award event and allows engineers, architects, architectural designers and builders to showcase innovation using timber,” says Debbie Fergie, NZ Wood’s Promotion Manager. [11]

Light clay-straw walls, passive solar design, and active solar technologies combine to make an innovative high-performance, net-zero energy home.
