For construction firms all over the country, the summer season is notorious for being a busy time of year. The longer days, warmer temperatures and lack of school commuters make it a logical time to undertake major projects, especially on roads and highways.  Unfortunately, more construction projects means more traffic, and in turn, longer commutes.

CAD (computer-aided drafting) and BIM (building information modeling) software programs, like AutoDesk Rivet and Graphisoft Archicad, are the standard for engineers and construction professionals these days. Like any other kind of software though, they’re constantly being updated and expanded to include better, more efficient tools and systems. Unfortunately, this also means it requires quite a […]

In 2014, Easton Archery officially opened their world class archery training facility right here in beautiful Salt Lake City.

April is the month where spring really kicks into high gear. The flowers start blooming, the trees are regaining their leaves and we just finished celebrating Earth Day.   If you haven’t already considered doing so, now might be a great time to invest in some more energy efficient, environmentally friendly construction.   Not only […]

In addition, you have to worry about the well-being of your tenants — talk about pressure.   That only covers regular duties […]

3D laser scanning is used by architects, engineers, inspectors and even students, but did you know that the technology has only been around since 1998?   In under 20 years, this technology has completely changed the way many do their professions, and has made solving problems and improving safety easier than ever.   But how […]
