Natural lighting, 1200 solar panels, and the use of sustainable materials are some of the design features of a new school in Farmington, Utah. Located in Davis School District, Odyssey Elementary School was also designed to obtain Gold certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. With older schools providing surroundings that may not be conducive to a productive teaching environment, the project presented an opportunity to create a space designed to encourage learning, starting with its colorful exterior.
 
 
 
 
The Stapleton Redevelopment project near Denver—a 16-year, $200-million endeavor—is still undergoing its transformation from an international airport to a thriving residential and mixed-use community. As the Colorado project progresses, final phases of asbestos abatement, demolition, and soil remediation are well underway. The 1902-ha (4700-acre) site was home to the Stapleton International Airport in 1919, which became Denver International a decade later.

The way we build bathrooms is changing. Owners of homes, condominiums, hotels, and spas want more than just utility—they are seeking a retreat-like atmosphere with the latest design elements, while still requiring reliability and durability. At the same time, many want their bathrooms to be barrier-free.
 
 
Observations of numerous building envelope failures in stucco (i.e. portland cement plaster) indicate it may lack durability when correct installation practices are not performed.

Over the past 20 years, physical security systems have evolved from hardware and software components to a comprehensive professional, functional, and technological domain. This requires specialized knowledge and subject matter expertise to design and specify security solutions. The most recent and significant development in integrated security systems is physical security information management (PSIM)––a software and professional services solution requiring a non-traditional approach to specification, design, and deployment for architects, engineers, consultants, and security professionals.
