Despite last year’s residential meltdown (-35%), industrial construction recorded strong growth in 2008, and commercial largely held its own, with gains in niches such as the hospitality and office sectors. Next year’s construction forecasts, released in December haven’t been good; industry experts predict a downturn in every single sector of construction for 2009. The good news is that fuel, lumber, drywall, and steel prices have fallen to their lowest prices in years.

Cheap Plastic Solar Cells on the Horizon?

Collaborative Construction

Researchers at UCLA have created cheaper plastic solar cells. Currently, solar cells are difficult to handle, expensive to purchase and complicated to install. The hope is that consumers will one day be able to buy solar cells from their local hardware store and simply hang them like posters on a wall. A new study by researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science has shown that the dream is one step closer to reality. Reporting in the Nov.

Technology and IPD May End Multiple Prime Contracts!

Collaborative Construction

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution. In the linked ENR article William Angelo opines that the perceived advantages of Multiple Prime Contracts can be achieved through the use of other more efficient tools. With changes to its controversial contracting law in a budget bill, New York state could become the sole champion of multiple-prime contracts. Other states have abandoned or are reconsidering the method in favor of flexibility while collaborative delivery systems may soon make it obsolete."

Are Tiny Hydrogen Traps in the Works?

Collaborative Construction

Scientists at Boston College have successfully grown tiny wire nets from silicon and titanium disilicide, a semiconductor. These nano-nets may lead to advances in micro-electronics and have the ability to facilitate the splitting of water into oxygen and hydrogen. Interestingly, the hydrogen remains trapped in the nano-netting, leading researchers to conclude that larger nano-nets may double as water-splitters and hydrogen fuel storage cells.
