Cranes, excavators work together to safely demolish Houston structure riddled with jobsite challenges
ForConstructionPros.com
In order to make room for a new 30-floor apartment building, the 10-story, 61-year-old-building currently sitting where the new apartment building was to be built needed to be demolished. Salt Lake City demolition contractor Grant Mackay estimated the project would take three months to abate the asbestos and two months to demolish the nearly the 180,000-square-foot structure, removing concrete walls and foundations. It turned out to present a number of challenges, including adapting to the wedding schedules of guests at La Colombe d’Or, a popular wedding venue located just feet away from the parking garage on site that was about to be demolished.

North Carolina county looks to boost construction and demolition recovery efforts
Construction & Demolition Recycling
The board of commissioners for New Hanover County, North Carolina, have voted in favor of issuing a Request for Proposal for equipment that would allow the county to increase the amount of construction and demolition debris it can recycle. Joe Suleyman, director of the county’s Department of Environmental Management, says the county has been pulling out around 6,000 tons of C&D material for the past decade in a labor-intensive method. Materials being recovered include pallets and lumber, asphalt shingles, carpet, sheetrock, metals and old corrugated containers. Local markets exist for all the material the county is recovering.

Building a website that converts
By Randall Craig
Have you ever considered what makes an effective website? You might think that it is great design, easy-to-find information and intuitive functionality. These may have made the list in 2002 — or even 2012 — but certainly not today. Many marketers now understand where the website fits into the mix. It is the hub to which every initiative (social media, advertising, media relations, direct mail, etc.) drives. When the user arrives at the site, they experience great design, easy-to-find information and intuitive functionality. Then nothing happens.
