VOLUME Construction Advisor Today   ISSUE 47   MARCH 18, 2010


When a contractor completes a project and is ready to receive final payment, there is more involved than an inspection and approval of the work itself. Construction contracts typically require submission of extensive documentation: affidavits, proof of payment, lien waivers, warranty information, record drawings, consent of surety, etc.


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) soon will open a facility that is intended to serve as a model for daylighting and energy-efficient construction. Upon completion, it is expected to be the largest net-zero building in the United States, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) spokesperson George Douglas told GBI.



The construction industry cannot afford to be complacent when it comes to productivity and needs to be proactive in dealing with this issue, Michael Casten, founder of the consulting firm Construction Concepts, said during a webinar sponsored by CPC/BIM earlier this month, telling attendees, "I would suggest to you that if you haven't recently solved your productivity problems, you have one."
