Bio-Concrete Revisted

The bio-concrete mentioned here last fall - Concrete that Repairs Itself - continues to move forward.  Below is a youtube video from the one of the inventors, Mircobiologist Henk Jonkers, describing bio-concrete.

Maintenance and repair of existing infrastructure and facilities represent a significant portion of the capital budgets of owners globally.  Concrete, a common building material, accounts for an enormous portion of such maintenance and repair work.  Advances in materials science - both biological and nanotech - hold great promise.

Advocates of IPD, BIM and lean process need to be cognizant of the the risks and benefits of these new materials.  Incorporating advanced materials into existing facilities and infrastructure will prove far more effective in achieving the "green agenda" that simply throwing money at the problem.
