Advancement in construction technology

Construction isn’t just building something, built can also be defined as art of making building and monuments. We have been constructing various scriptures, monuments, buildings, since the dawn of mankind. However from those periods to the modern era there’s the construction technology has been completely revolutionized. Here’s the list of most advanced construction technology around the globe one could only think of.

 

  1. Material 10 X the strength of steel
    We all know steel as a most important material for the construction. And this is the only material we can due to its physical properties, especially strength. How about any material much lighter but having more strength than steel, AMAZING! Yes, one more amazing fact about that material graphene is actually from the parent component graphite one of the world’s softest metal. Just changing the molecular configuration from 2-D to 3-D can make the softest the world’s strongest. Graphene is currently developed at MI, Boston and researches are currently going on towards a whole new world of its applications.
  2. Fatigue Sensor
    Most of us here would have seen the movie “3 IDIOTS”, where Rancho asked engineers haven’t made any machine that could measure the stress. Well we thing that engineers at SMART CAP must have taken this way too seriously. Yes, now they have developed a hat that can measure the fatigue levels of the workers, known as head band, which could be attached to the hard hat of the workers. This cap is developed for mining construction workers and is currently being tested by the BAM NUTTAL who is one of the biggest mining contactors in the UK.
  3. Self-driving construction vehicles

Google is developing a self-driving tech for consumer usage known as WAYMO. Inspired from this engineers at COLARADO DOT, developed a same concept vehicle but just a much bigger one which wouldn’t be used to carry passengers but building materials. There are currently two vehicles developed namely AIPV (Autonomous Impact protection vehicle) and ATMA (Autonomous Truck Mounted Attenuator). These trucks use the GOS systems to check and control their distance, acceleration and speed. The path may either be as in form of a fixed program or programmable as per the requirement of the model.

  1. 3-D print structures

Most of us here know about the 3-D printing technology, creating objects and small tools from it. How cool it would be if we could just 3-D print a whole building. This is also not futuristic tech anymore. This is a joint project for MIT and Russian Apis co-robotic arm. The robotic arm used is a sophisticated one which uses a special concrete hat can build a structure in a single day. The robotic arm is designed to be self-sufficient, as it can be powered using variable power sources such as solar o battery powered. Is especially designed for disaster or distress situations where it can be deployed to build shelters just in a day even at the remotest locations.

Lucknow – The City of Nawabi Architectures

Lucknow, also known as the city of Nawabs with iconic Mahals and beautiful buildings and bungalows. In that edacity of city culture, there are modern constructions trying to improvise with the spectacular Royal buildings. Not only the the havelis or compounds but also 1BHK or 2 BHK houses can also have the iconic royal looks. Here are some ideas of interior designs for modern buildings to give them that improvised look inspired by the royal Nawab Culture.

  1. The Royal Palace (Bungalow)

The design is as iconic as the name suggests. The walls decorated with the royal petal cravings towards the roof. The royal chandelier hanging on the roofs, giving a shiny appurtenance.  The crafted walls goes well with the light golden colour doors with the knob handles polished to perfection. Here we cannot also forget about the golden design borders and big hall upfront the main entrance, decorated with royal while couches in the middle. The living rooms composing with the King Size beds nearby the window (though a charging point still remains the priority) which get along with the royal old style cupboards. The kitchen can express the most iconic beauty in its own terms with the composite glass wares and tanned cooking utensils. This contributes to a lustrous environment which gives a feel of royalty.

 

  1. The Kings Mansion (3 BHK house)

If you are here reading this you must have heard that “the consumer is a King and King never bargains”. If you are a person who do not compromise anything for a Royal beauty this is definitely for you. Yes, we here are talking about kings and kings do not lay bare feet on floor. Well we aren’t talking about floating in the air but a fur mattress under your feet. Let’s start with the floor mats, a fur textured, dyed like animal skin (just dyed we love animals). All let under the most used house features like bed , dining table, drawing area and all the floor spaces where we sit most frequently. Make sure that all the living rooms are oriented similarly and are identical.  Place the grilled queen size beds with a big mattress covered with sheet. The window’s curtains dressed up like it welcomes you with pride. All these there at the right places and you get the charm you want. Where the kitchen stays modular with a touch of royal looking wallpapers on the side walls which just adds royalty to the modern ethnicity to the level of perfection.

  1. The Hagrid keepers (2BHK house).

We all know the Hagrid from Harry potter and we know his house, here even the smaller modular houses can also get a fantastic royal looks. It just requires a bit touch of remodelling the interiors with the antique looks and a metal-ware with a glass composite structure. The living rooms in the small house show the best part of the Nawab looks, the positioning of the beds the colour of the surroundings, putting in some glass.
