Collaborative BIM Advocates Meet at HOK's Office in Chicago!

James L. Salmon and Rich Cardwell attended the ABA's Construction Law Forum Fall Meeting in Chicago. The theme of the meeting was "Winds of Change" and the ConsensusDOCS Contracts were featured in every presentation during the 3 day meeting! While there Rich made a breakfast presentation to a standing room only crowd in which he compared and contrasted the ConsensusDOCS 300 Series Tri-Party Agreement with the AIA's new Integrated Project Delivery Documents.

On Friday, September 12, 2008 James and Rich made their way to Collaborative BIM Advocate Member HOK's Chicago office where James made a presentation to a diverse group of Collaborative BIM Advocates. James highlighted the use of collaborative agreements as a mechanism for achieving Integrated Project Delivery and showed those in attendance how the new generation of collaborative agreements support BIM and Lean.

Are Tiny Hydrogen Traps in the Works?

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. These fascinating developments may eventually lead to new tools we can put to good use in the building / facilities industry.
