Port Of Miami tunnel project features big challenges
Engineering News-Record
When the 2,000-ton cutterhead of a tunnel-boring machine named Harriet made a U-turn last summer in Miami, the event marked a major turning point for the Port of Miami tunnel project. Complex geology and a congested urban setting continue to challenge the design-build team as it constructs cross passages and completes tunneling through eight different layers of earth using both the earth-pressure-balance method and water-controlled pressure, also called hydraulic mucking. "This is the first time that a large-diameter tunnel has been bored through coralline limestone," says Louis P. Brais, project executive.

Demolition team finally topples giant smokestack
Yahoo News
VideoBrief A 175-foot tall smokestack in Washington state didn’t go down without a fight. An explosives crew detonated a payload beneath the 1,000-ton-smokestack at the former Peninsula Plywood mill site in Port Angeles, only to have it remain standing, most likely due to some rugged steel bars that were included to keep the thing standing in the first place.

Construction Source
According to a new report, the demolition of aging skyscrapers and the construction of more efficient, modern replacements could be the best means of shoring up the sustainability and environmental friendliness of urban areas. The study, conducted by consulting firm Terrapin Bright Green at the behest of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and other groups, concluded that the demolition of skyscrapers built in New York during the mid-20th century and the construction of larger replacements is a better option than retrofitting the existing structures.
