30 Story Hotel Completely Built and Finished in Fifteen Days, on New Years Eve (Amazing Video)


As an architect, I find this completely amazing. Before the Olympics we showed the Ark Hotel erected in six days, but it had nothing on this 170,000 square foot, 30 story hotel that was turnkeyed in 360 hours. It completely changes the way buildings are constructed and, I believe, is about to change the entire industry. Broad Sustainable Construction/Video screen capture I have followed the Broad Corporation for years at TreeHugger, as they became the world's largest producer of air conditioning equipment. This prefabricated building system works much like the Kenner Girder and panel building set of my childhood; [...]

Illustration of Mix Design of Concrete by ISI Method


The concrete is widely used construction material. The main ingredient of the concrete is cement, aggregates, water and admixtures. Due to the varying properties of the materials used in concrete, the design of concrete is not an easy task. The various methods of mix design are applied for determining the qualities & quantity of concrete. The objective of designing a mix is to produce a concrete of required strength, durability and workability as economically as possible. In our country, generally Indian Standard Institution (ISI) concrete design method is preferred and hence has been discussed. The use of Indian standard institution (ISI) [...]

Inflatable dams installed to help NYC reduce sewer overflows.

The $15.7 million project in Williamsburg and Red Hook is the city’s first attempt at using the synthetic-rubber systems, which have been big hits overseas and other parts of the country. The underground dams include controlled mechanisms and automated sensors that cause the dams to inflate [...]
