Construction Company Sunshine Coast
The bounds of construction technology have been stretched to achieve concepts formerly impossible. The quality, aesthetics and profitability of projects are improving continually. Here are some innovation concepts from Beachside Construction (Qld) company in Sunshine Coast.
Stewart Brand said “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.”
Asphalt not only uses old tyres now, but recycled plastic bottles, cigarette butts and recycled printer toner too. Solar roads are being experimented with, and energy-reducing roads that glow in the dark, as well as induction-priority lanes with embedded magnetic fields, which charge electric cars and streetlights.
Jared Diamond said: “Technology has to be invented or adopted.”
3D printed bridges are being built, which means there is no wasted cement, carbon-dioxide emissions are lowered, no formwork is needed, waste is reduced, and shapes can be innovative. Self-healing concrete using bacteria or fungus fixes fine cracks as they form. Prefabrication is more integrated. Predictive analysis helps to manage risk, and jobside connectivity reduces risk and mistakes in communication.
Sam Ewing said: “Computers are like bikinis. They save people a lot of guesswork.”
There are bricklaying, track-loading and other construction robots using trucks and dump trucks as well as self-driving ‘mega-machines’ that can be controlled from hundreds of miles away.
John Lasseter said: “The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.”
Virtual mock-ups test operating theatres and other medical facilities as well as every aspect of a construction project. Transparent aluminium is bullet proof, almost as strong as steel, looks like glass and does not shatter. Aerogel or ‘frozen smoke’ insulation is up to four times as efficient as fibreglass or foam insulation.
Sir Arthur C. Clarke said “Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic.”
Interlocking, extendable, modular bamboo structures for living are being developed: sustainable, renewable and resilient, they can resist earthquake tremors. Concrete smart bricks are also modular and are easy to connect, thus less expensive, with space for insulation, electricity and plumbing.
Steve Jobs said: “Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”
