Construction's Carbon Dilemma: Why, When and How?
Sustainability and climate change continue to be key topics within the construction industry globally. The UK Government has set out to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050. It is estimated that 25% of carbon emissions come from homes and a further 17% from non-domestic buildings, so a decision was made to improve energy efficiency in every household.
How Fire Safety might change construction in the next few years?
Fire Safety is an essential yet complex area all builders must address. As high-rise development increases so does the chances of fire hazards. In recent times, London has some of the worst high-rise building fires. This ultimately led to the widely known Hackitt Report.
Bridging the Gap between Design & Build
There is a gulf between the design and construction companies on a building project and the operations managers who take over the end-product. This can occur when information isn't properly defined at the outset because designers, contractors and manufacturers don't have a specific brief as to what's required of them.
