Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!

Constructing a building is a massive undertaking with months and even sometimes years of planning, design, and construction. There are many moving parts and integral pieces so if there is a single misstep or miscommunication, the building project can experience costly delays or redesigns. Having clear and open communication is key. At Gausman and Moore, our professional engineers work together with the various disciplines needed to successfully complete a building. Outlined below is a list of the many ways our engineers encourage a cohesive team to reach the final goal.

Principles of Sustainable Design: Understanding Photovoltaics

When energy from the sun is converted into usable energy, it is done through the science of the photovoltaic process. This process is what most people are referring to when they think of solar energy. Renewable energy sources are becoming more popular by the day as more buildings, both commercial and residential, are turning toward alternative energy. So what exactly are photovoltaics, and how does this science work?

Using Smart Micro-Grids in your Project

Sustainable technology buildings and localized business parks are taking advantage of smart microgrid technology. Large power plant systems can be costly and unreliable. A smart microgrid system takes the same concepts of a large power grid design and scales everything down to accommodate a small, local business park or campus. There are many applications for a smart microgrid installation, which come with sustainable benefits. Below, we will examine how smart microgrids work and their several benefits they can bring to your next building project.

Getting Through Tough Design Decisions with Energy Modeling

Creating an aesthetically pleasing building with an energy-efficient mindset can sometimes be challenging. Often it feels as if you cannot accomplish both within the same building. If you start early enough in the design process though, both goals can be accomplished. Relatively new in the field of building design is a process called energy modeling. With energy modeling it is now possible to project what type of energy impact your building will have over a 30-year period.

The Difference Between a Project Manager and a Construction Manager

All building construction projects require various forms of leadership and management, and deciding the type of leadership required for a project is an important task. The best decision can make a huge difference in the efficiency of a construction project, from inception to completion. Project managers (PM) handle all management responsibilities from a project’s inception to completion, whereas construction managers (CM) manage only the construction of a project. But what’s the difference between the two regarding each of their roles in a new project?
