Construction News

Good morning. Back once again here for another entry. It’s hard to believe that we have almost reached the end of 2017 and we are about to reach 2018 in two months. Hopefully the construction industry picks up particularly in the petroleum industry which has been hit with low oil prices and job losses. Anyway, a whole lot has happened during the two months I have been gone from this blog and I will tell you about them in the next paragraph.

First off, I would like to say that some construction has been going on in regards to infrastructure. A new road near Sarcee Trail and Glenmore Trail is being paved since from what I hear there has been talks about expanding this road so more cars can use it. So this bridge that has been constructed years ago, the one we drive on will be torn down.Now I don’t know why they are going to tear the ring road down because people have been getting used to it due to the reduction of traffic congestion years ago.

Another thing that has been going on is some building downtown which has been falling apart due to some falling glass that has been hitting the ground, that has resulted in closing a part of downtown.Now, I cannot say much about this building but what I do know is that the building has been poorly built and designed since what building has been built on glass? Glass cannot sustain itself for long since it can break easily and probably suffer major damage if natural disasters strike like tornados or earthquakes. Glass buildings are not sustainable for the long run. The architects could have design the building with concrete and then use the glass for the windows.

Well, those are the stories I have for this month.Take care and have yourselves a Happy Thanksgiving this month for readers in the USA.For the rest of you have yourselves a Merry Christmas and all the best during this holiday season and the best in 2018.
