By Scott Wolfe
It's the time of the year for construction and materials companies to step back from the daily grind and evaluate the prior year's successes and failures, and to plan for the year ahead. Through this process, it's inevitable that you'll pursue your accounts receivable aging report and feel your stomach churn about the money you earned but couldn't collect. The question is why, and perhaps more importantly, how do you correct it and avoid write offs in 2014?

Equipment focus: Spherical miracle
Construction & Demolition Recycling
As the United States space program declines, gone are the crowd-captivating shuttle launches and International Space Station trips. And while other countries continue space exploration, much of the infrastructure associated with NASA's previous efforts is being retired, restructured or demolished to make way for new facilities. At the agency's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif., Pantano Demolition tackled the removal of four massive vacuum spheres once used in support of the facility's hypersonic wind tunnel. It faced formidable challenges, but by using a pair of Genesis GXP 990R mobile shears, the company overcame them and redefined the phrase "heavy metal."

Can buildings be too young to save?
The Boston Globe
It's possible to love a city without loving all its buildings. That's a lucky thing for Boston, where some of the most notable works of architecture since the 1960s are also the most loathed. There are the looming twin towers of the JFK Federal Building, the forbidding 1972 addition to the Central Library, the dementedly Seussian Stata Center at MIT, and the Government Service Center, an aggressive concrete behemoth designed by star architect Paul Rudolph. And of course there's City Hall, finished in 1968, which has been called the ugliest building in the world.
