Construction started last month on the 284-ft-tall mass timber-and-concrete apartment building in Milwaukee—which, if completed as planned in mid-2022, would be the world's tallest hybrid timber tower.
U.S. Representative Dina Titus is demanding answers from the head of the General Services Administration about GSA’s newly released criteria for construction, which call for two new courthouses—in Florida and Alabama—to be built in the “classic architectural style.”
The daring rebuild of the dysfunctional landmark Portland Building, designed by the late Michael Graves and considered to be the building that triggered the postmodern movement in architecture, was so successful that the building team is writing a playbook for the delivery model it used, which it calls collaborative design-build, with progressive contracting.
The American Wood Council and International Code Council have released a joint publication, Mass Timber Buildings and the IBC, which gives an overview of code changes regarding mass timber construction.
The New York City Dept. of Buildings has granted permission to use SpeedCore in New York City. The high-rise lateral-load resisting system of tied dual-plate wall modules field-filled with concrete has the potential to slash superstructure construction time compared to steel frames with reinforced concrete cores.
A collaboration, led by Medistar Corp. and researchers from the University of Houston and Texas A&M, has developed a heating ventilating and air conditioning system filter that can trap and instantly kill 99.8% of the coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, says the team.
We'll discuss an integrated CAD and BIM approach to project delivery, which allows engineers to work in a 2D CAD environment to deliver 3D BIM models and high-quality 2D deliverables from the same workflow. Using a 3D model to drive 2D deliverables augments existing plans production process with the best features of 3D modeling: automated rebar detailing, conflict detection, & quantities/geometry reporting.
As bridge designs become more complex, engineering teams face many challenges with limited project budgets and tight deadlines. Join us for an exclusive webinar as we share details of a prominent bridge design project executed by Arup. Discover how they delivered a fabulous bridge design on-time without jeopardizing quality. We’ll also share the best practices they learned from this one-of-a-kind project.
Future-Proofing Infrastructure Stories by AREP and Bentley
Building and public space design is not just about improving the aesthetics of infrastructure, it’s important to consider the usability of the building for the inhabitants. During this webinar, we'll explore the tools and projects that allow buildings of all types to be designed and operated with a better understanding of how the people will use them.
A panel of industry judges reviewed a record number of entries to select 30 winning projects located in 21 countries on six continents. Colón, Panama’s urban renewal, providing modernized, safe and livable infrastructure for the country’s second-largest city, was chosen as ENR’s Global Project of the Year.
