Elevators: airports need an upgrade

Quality manpower is one of the biggest challenges during installation of elevators besides safety. Elevators are a key part of buildings and require to function safely and efficiently. However, the design aesthetics of the elevators should aesthetically complement the design of buildings as well. Experts are of the view that ensuring elevators are safe to

IoT: towards smarter construction

New technologies can help identify glitches that hamper construction efficiency. New smart building solutions have arrived in the form of economical, easy-to-install Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, switches, and gateways. The technology existing today allows buildings to essentially learn from itself. A modern building automation system will monitor the various facilities it controls to understand

Graebert’s CAD software: easing design

CAD software has changed the way the world works, particularly in the architectural segment. It has replaced traditional drafting and design methods like pen and paper, allowing industries to plan, simulate and produce their new ideas in a single program. One should go through the role of CAD in the architecture industry, highlighting how CAD

Beckhoff expands EtherCAT Terminals with TwinSAFE SC technology

The EtherCAT Terminals in the ELX series have been expanded by the addition of analog input terminals with TwinSAFE SC (single channel) technology. These highly compact I/O terminals can be used to support applications in hazardous areas that require both intrinsically safe signal transmission and functional safety capabilities. The highly compact ELX series terminals, which

Will my project benefit from control flow concrete?

A new type of highly flowable concrete bridges the gap between conventional and self-consolidating concrete. Conventional concrete has been used as a building material since 1824. It works just fine for many building projects since it’s easy to produce and to deliver to the jobsite. However, it’s not exactly an easy material to work with.
