Net Zero Construction: What It Is and How to Achieve It With a PEMB

The goal of reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHG) to net zero has become a priority for industries of all types, including construction. That means achieving a balance between the amount of GHG added to the atmosphere and the amount removed from it. Innovations in technology have put this goal within reach—even for large structures such as pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB).

OSHA 30 Training and Construction Facts and FAQs

Anyone entering a field that involves safety risks would be well advised to take an OSHA course. And many jobs require it. Entry-level workers can take a 10-hour course, while supervisors, safety directors, forepersons and others in positions of responsibility are encouraged to take the 30-hour training—popularly known as OSHA 30.

AI and the construction industry

AI and the Construction Industry

“There’s much more to the construction industry than erecting buildings. There’s planning, designing, engineering, problem solving, cost estimating, risk assessment and communication, to name just a few essential activities. In all these areas, AI can provide helpful insights that increase productivity while minimizing errors and wasted time.”
