How to Find Best Material Takeoff & Estimating Company

Article | February 18, 2020

Construction material takeoff is considered as a very important part of the overall cost estimation in any construction project. Without a price estimation, it is not only difficult to provide a layout but lack of material estimation also raises a lot of doubt later. In this process, the contractors are required to use the actual blueprints of the building to be prepared and calculate the quantity of material that will be required for the overall price and the supplies that are needed. According to this information the project budget is calculated later, which is the main reason it is very important to have an accurate estimate.

15 sites in the frame to become home to the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant

Article | February 18, 2020

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) has revealed the long list of sites under consideration for development of the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant.An open call for sites to host the Spherical Tokomak for Energy Production (Step) facility was opened last year and compliance check of those nominated has led to publication of the long list. According to the UKAEA, moving fusion from research and development to design and delivery is an important part of the UK’s ambition to be a world leader in sustainable, low-carbon energy. Fusion has the potential to provide an abundant source of low-carbon energy by copying the processes that power the sun and stars. UKAEA has said that this new technology will play an important role alongside established renewable technologies such as wind and solar.Step programme director Paul Methven said: “STEP is about building on the amazing science done over decades in fusion and translating that into a real prototype power plant that paves the way for this fantastic new energy source.

Increase Construction Productivity with Mobile Time Tracking Apps

Article | February 18, 2020

Since the 1950’s, United States agricultural and manufacturing industries have increased their productivity rates by 1,000%. In stark contrast, productivity rates for the U.S. construction industry haven’t increased at all. Thanks to the rise of construction-technology, there are less obvious and less expensive ways to become more efficient. And they don’t involve completely changing the way you build. Instead, they use mobile apps to speed up or automate time-consuming administrative tasks. So you, your employees and your subs can spend less time on “busy work” and more time on the work that moves your projects forward.
