Erecting a new building in an urban setting means coordinating a whole range of challenges not faced in open areas. Just managing the logistics—material deliveries and construction site traffic, for example—takes on a new level of complexity in the face of rush-hour traffic and sidewalks full of people.

Specifiers and contractors can enhance their concrete cutting, polishing, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) imaging, and selective demolition skills with two newly released resources from Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association (CSDA).
