New Trends in Construction and Building
Building information modeling

Building Information Modelling takes into account the most crucial thing in a construction project: Collaboration. To put it simply, BIM refers to a collaborative method of working which is based on the generation and exchange of data and information between the various project parties.

Project management software

Like various other industries, construction has realized the potential of implementing a project management software. Real-time project management software has been continuously advancing in order to draw more insights from data.

VR and AR

Compared to augmented reality, virtual reality is a much more common tool in construction. It is often used in BIM. Its biggest benefit is the ability to provide virtual walk throughs in order to sell property and pitch architectural ideas to clients. The possibility to virtually show clients what their investment will look like beforehand, makes VR a very attractive technology.

Robotics

Robotics and Automation have revolutionized various industries. Its arrival in construction has been slow but it’s here now and rapidly spreading. There has been much technological advancement made in robotics. One such example is MIT’s Digital Construction Platform which uses 3D printing to create form structures.

Drones

There has been much talk about Drones and the numerous advantages they provide to a construction project. It is extensively used in mapping the construction site (thereby gathering data of the entire site), reporting the changes and updates of the project to clients, and monitoring and inspecting job sites.

Modular construction

Modular buildings or prefabricated buildings is the development of a building structure off-site, and then transporting it to the desired site without compromising on quality. There is no change in building materials and supplies, and the job is done in less time.

Green construction

One of the most significant change observed in the construction industry is the growing interest in green construction. There has been a global change in the way people consume. Consumers have started to change their lifestyles.

In short, 2018 holds

A lot of excitement for the construction industry. From BIM to VR to Green Construction… we will see a lot of progress in all of these sectors. Lets keep a look out and see where the industry is next year.

Risk management plan in construction

Intense competition for available work
Expectation to produce a high return on all invested funds
Intense pressure to save as much money as possible as well as time
Consistently low margins and lower profits
A high number of litigation cases as well as disputes
Safety issues

New Normal Public Bathrooms

Both organizations know that their clients will be paying careful attention to bathrooms, whether in restaurants or movie theaters. In industrial locations, the same is true. Workers want to know that steps are being taken by their employers to protect their wellbeing. In industrial locations, bathroom cleanliness has always been a problem. But now, because of COVID, those issues have greatly increased.
So, when it comes to restrooms in the post COVID period, we should expect a "New Normal". The following are among the changes anticipated researched by bath remodeling in Boulder, CO:
Cleaners for Bathroom.
Although toilets have always been thoroughly cleaned once a day or between shifts, many industrial toilets will employ people during the day just to clean them on an ongoing basis. We might note, many employers like to see the toilets being cleaned during the day by their employees. This helps to alleviate anxieties regarding the restrooms' cleanliness.
The return of towels made of cloth.
There are concerns that pathogens can become airborne due to blow dryers. To help avoid this, several facilities are eliminating blow dryers and re-installing paper towel dispensers.
Soap dispensers with a push button.
Just like air blowers, expect soap dispensers with push-buttons to be a fast thing. It is possible that these will be replaced with touchless devices. Manual-fill soap dispensers would also possibly disappear due to this. The door to contamination is opened by manual soap filling dispensers. They will be replaced, removing this issue, with cartridge soap dispensers.
Farewell platinum.
Silver is used to make most of the toilet fixtures, latches, and other things found in restrooms. These are going to be replaced by polished copper. Copper is an antimicrobial that is natural. Ions blast the pathogen like an onslaught of rockets as a microbe falls on copper, escaping cell respiration and punching holes in the cell membrane.
Removal Fixture.
Expect facilities to decrease the number of toilets in their restrooms, sinks, and urinals. The goal is to get less people at one time in the bathroom. Users would have to wait for a stall to open outside the toilet - standing six feet apart.
Partitions of urinals.
The trend was to eliminate partitions between the urinals. That will be reversed in the men's room of the New Standard. Expect the addition of more partitions. Some hotels, just as they have for toilets, are also considering building fully enclosed stalls.
Proof of service.
The bathroom cleaning "check-off" sheets are put on the back of restroom doors by several industrial facilities. These suggest who, and when, cleaned the bathroom last. For everyone to see, expect those to be put on the front of doors and bathroom entries now. Plus, ATP readings can also be included so that customers know that the toilet has been clinically checked to ensure safe use of it. Such monitors on a surface do not recognize particular pathogens, but a high reading suggests that they may be present.
The Common Thread: Washing
In the New Standard bathroom, these are just some of the improvements we can expect. But better cleaning is one shared thread they'll all share. It's more than just better washing, though. The forms in which toilets are washed would also come under much further scrutiny.
