Excavator showdown: Tracked vs. wheeled
Equipment World
When it comes to high-production digging, you just can’t beat an excavator on steel tracks. But take away the undercarriage and add wheels and you get a very different machine. Wheeled excavators can’t dig as aggressively as their tracked cousins, but with a quick coupler and attachments they can perform a surprising variety of jobs and maneuver in places where any other type of heavy equipment would be impossible.

For concrete, climate change may mean a shorter lifespan
The Boston Globe
A new study out of Northeastern University suggests that for a dense coastal city like Boston, a more immediate vulnerability may lie in something not even considered. It’s not rising seas that will get those areas first; it’s collapsing concrete. Untold tons of concrete make up a city’s buildings, bridges, roads, and parking garages. As solid as it looks, reinforced concrete is vulnerable to long-term corrosion and decay: Over the course of decades, elements from the environment slowly work their way through to corrode the metal rods inside.

Construction technology: The cloud and beyond
By Nate Budde
We use technology to improve or simplify our lives and jobs every day — no matter what job you have or what industry you are in. Despite the fact that everybody uses technology in some way, some industries lag far behind the curve in the adoption of certain technologies. It's odd, but many construction industry participants have not yet realized how much simpler, easier, cleaner and more efficient the proper use of new technology could make their outdated and inefficient current process, even though they are currently using technology in some way anyway.
