The approval allows ship owners who deballast in United States waters to make a confident choice of treatment technology. The USCG based its type approval of PureBallast on CMFDA/FDA testing conducted at DHI in Denmark. This testing was performed using the same hardware, power consumption and flow as the already market-leading IMO-certified version of the PureBallast 3 family.

Alexandra Bolton on skills and education in transforming construction

Article | March 5, 2020

Securing the skills, training and education required to transform construction requires industry, government and academia to work together towards a shared goal. We need both capability and capacity in the work force and that in turn needs new skills, education and training to support change. While this brings challenge, it also brings unprecedented opportunity to deliver a modern construction sector that is fit for future purpose and equipped to deliver better services and outcomes to society. It is an opportunity we simply cannot afford to miss.

How can we design better for Buildability?

Article | July 28, 2021

The use of highly sophisticated building models – as a result of BIM – has transformed how we design the built environment. However, although the digital models used by architects and engineers during design enable impressive visualization and documentation of the designer’s intent, the data and considerations required to construct it are often considered separately. We typically use the design model to communicate the final state of the project – not how it is constructed, even though such considerations result in a more accurate estimate on both project time and cost. Of course, different flavors of BIM tools exist that do consider such topics during manufacturing and construction, but how often do we truly consider the impact of the construction process as part of making the right initial design decisions?

3 Ways Design Will Change Post-COVID

Article | June 16, 2021

The global pandemic has affected fundamental aspects of everyone’s daily lives, from the way we work and learn to how we shop and socialize. The need for social distancing has brought about a number of changes to the public spaces used by all, such as one-way systems and temporary hand-sanitizing facilities. However, these measures are short-term fixes, often shoehorned into spaces that were not designed with social distancing in mind. The challenge for architects and designers as we move into a post-COVID future is to design for these new requirements in innovative and creative ways that still enable a sense of togetherness while maintaining physical distance – the new post-COVID architecture. These are three ways architecture might change as a result of the pandemic.
