The Associated General Contractors of America will hold its third Contractors Environmental Conference on June 12-13, in Arlington, Va. As an industry partner for this conference, NDA members receive a savings of $100 off the non-AGC member rates that kick in on April 26.

From leadership in sustainability to compliance with legal requirements, the 2014 AGC CEC will provide invaluable resources for environmental professionals in the construction industry.

Everyone benefits from the early bird registration savings through April 25.

Demolition asset recovery news: Recyclable materials drywall and plaster expected to become a hot commodity by 2016
Elder Demolition
Drywall is a major component in demolition asset recovery. Demolition outfits recover drywall for its key component, gypsum, a mineral that is also used in cement, fertilizer, and compost, among other applications. Since gypsum typically makes up to 90 percent of the weight of drywall, it can be recovered fairly easily and is currently being recycled in several locations across North America.

By D. Albert Brannen
Getting the most out of employees has always challenged employers. It is particularly difficult in today's highly-regulated business environment with increased global competition and changing employee attitudes. Performance management is not just about dealing with the poor performers.

Materials, electronics that dissolve when triggered being developed
Iowa State University via ScienceDaily
A research team is developing "transient materials" and "transient electronics" that can quickly and completely melt away when a trigger is activated. That could mean that one day you could send out a signal to destroy a lost credit card, or when soldiers are wounded, their electronic devices could be remotely triggered to melt away, securing sensitive military information. The field of study is very new, but progress is being made.
