In Plane Sight: The Fort Worth Alliance Airport ATC Tower

3 days 14 hours ago
[ By Steve in Architecture & Offices & Commercial. ]

The Fort Worth Alliance Airport air traffic control tower is an FAA-certified Level 5 facility whose design showcases the best features of Modernism.

Designed by architectural firm Albert Halff Associates, the control tower opened in 1992 and is the crowning glory of Fort Worth Alliance Airport. It was also one of the final pieces of the puzzle to be put in place at AFW, which officially opened on December 14th of 1989. We’re not sure how pilots managed to fly into and out of AFW in the interim… maybe they just winged it.

Based on the Netherland’s chosen theme of “uniting water, energy, and food” the pavilion will be built using a construction method prioritizing closed-loop circularity, local materials, and a post-use recyclable agenda.

Find the Right Bidding Software for Construction

4 days 9 hours ago

Construction companies, as well as subcontractors,  get most of their jobs thru bidding. A construction bid is a process where the construction form presents a potential client with a proposal or a tender to build a building or manage a construction project. And, although bids are not chosen on the basis of cost alone, contractors that submit the lowest tenders tend to wind the contract and win the project.

In construction bids, the contractors have one golden rule: Start with highly accurate cost estimates and then, submit the lowest bid. And this starts with looking at the construction plans (which are provided by the would-be client) and performing a material quantity takeoff. If the contractor estimates the project too high, he might lose the bid altogether. But, if the contractor bids too low, he might end up losing money.

One of the best ways of ensuring that your estimates are accurate, save for having a good estimator on your team is by using a tender management software.

Concept: Coexistence of old and modern appearance
This building with Gwanghwamunhaemul is believed to have been built in 1940. We wanted to see the Gwanghwamunhaemul as a brand suitable for Jeong-dong, where the modern and old tastes coexist, and thought that they were both modern and contemporary in the 1940s. So, before we started to look for the old look of space, we started ironing out the wooden ceiling, the interior and exterior structural material of the metal, as well as the modern design elements.

Every year, more than 500 design elites from more than 30 countries around the world will gather here. Architects of Zoyo are trying to find design basis from the historical relics of Liangzhu culture with thousand-year history and design means based on industry in order to create a special interval between the new and old in space, and the past and the future in time.

Each is embedded with the voices and stories of real people — from Afghanistan, Congo, Syria, Iraq and Sudan — who have escaped those same rooms and buildings to build a new life in America.”
