Solar Energy Solution Creates Endless Opportunities?
Over the past decade, solar energy panels have gone through several radical advances as new technology has enabled more efficient, extremely durable and lower cost solar panels
This article reports on the latest innovation that will delight architects, engineers and designers because it removes many of the restrictions of existing solutions.
World’s First Rope-Less Horizontal-Vertical Elevator System
Thyssenkrupp has unveiled one of the industry’s most forward-thinking innovations created since the 19th century: the world’s first rope-less and sideways-moving elevator system, MULTI.
Instead of one cabin per shaft moving up and down, the MULTI offers multiple cabins operating in loop, like a metro system inside a building.
Without the use of cables, MULTI runs on a safe multi-level brake system and redundant wireless data and energy management on the cars.
Unique Formwork Solution for Google’s London Headquarters
There are occasions when sophisticated, advanced construction techniques cannot be applied. Something simpler and more innovative is required.
This was the case for building a sound studio into Google’s new London headquarters. The works involved construction of a reinforced concrete sound studio inside an existing completed building.
Customer requirements were for a system with a Low Carbon Footprint although the quality of the finished face was not important as internal blockwork was to be erected. This meant the costs could be reduced by using a cheap ply for the face.
On Monday, February 20, 2017, the Skanska-Kiewit joint venture project team celebrated the opening of the new northbound roadway of the Bayonne Bridge. Connecting New York and New Jersey, the newly opened roadway sits 19.5 m (64 feet) higher than the original—nested within the upper reaches of one of the longest steel arch bridges in the world.

USA: Challenging Tower Block Structure
Foster + Partners describe the new Comcast as a vertically stepped tower, with loft-like work spaces and state-of-the-art television studios for NBC at the base, and a 12-storey hotel above. The hotel lobby is at the apex of the tower, along with a restaurant and bar with unrivalled city views.
The Elan Valley Aqueduct (EVA) has been bringing water to the city of Birmingham, United Kingdom for more than a century. The 119 km-long aqueduct is one of the last great civil engineering achievements of the Victorian era.
Opened in 1904 by Queen Victoria’s son, King Edward VII, the aqueduct today carries 320 million litres of fresh water to Birmingham from mid-Wales every day - roughly twice the volume it carried a century ago.
The application of the patented Cobiax slab technology has optimised notable projects for stationary traffic in Germany: the expansion of the underground garage at the Universitätsklinikum (University Clinic) and the multi-storey car park in the Glücksteinquartier (Glückstein quarter).
On both of these projects by the same client and operator, the municipal Mannheimer Parkhausbe-triebe GmbH (MPB), the slab technology by Cobiax was used to optimise both constructional measures and utilisation parameters.
