BONE Structure timelapse video

BONE Structure®, designer and builder of luxury custom homes using a patented light steel frame building technology and integrated process has broken ground on its first California net zero-energy project. The Laval (Quebec) Canada-based company with US operations managed from San Francisco, began assembly last week on the 3,200 square foot home in Stanford, CA that will meet California’s 2020 Zero Net Energy (ZNE) new home building requirements. BONE Structure creates custom homes built from columns and beams that are laser cut in a manufacturing plant and delivered to the site for assembly. A licensed BONE Structure assembly crew of five workers will assemble the shell of the home in days, each using battery powered drill, and one type of self-tapping screw to secure the steel columns and beams in place. Electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilation systems are easily connected thanks to precut openings acting as “highways” within the structure. Precut insulation panels clip into place between the steel columns and polyurethane foam insulation is sprayed on the exterior that tightly seals the building and acts as a vapor barrier. Together, the steel structure, insulation panels, spray insulation, and the roof create a tight, energy efficient envelope.

Timelapse video of Burns & McDonnell world headquarters building

This timelapse video of the new Burns & McDonnell world headquarters building is a must-watch. When watching this video keep in mind the expansion project spanned 17 months, required 345,000 man-hours for completion and had zero safety incidents. The project team credits the integrated design-build delivery method for staying within the $85 million budget. Burns & McDonnell says their integrated design-build is an approach in which one team of architects, engineers, constructors and other professionals work collaboratively to see that all project details are executed to perfection from conception to occupancy. Now, serving as the anchor to the famed Ward Parkway corridor, the four-story, 310,000-square-foot facility is the third building on the firm’s 37-acre campus. Burns & McDonnell partnered with VanTrust Real Estate on the expansion project that increases the size of its world headquarters by 74 percent, accommodating 1,400 additional employee-owners....
