The construction industry is evolving right in front of our eyes, and there has never been a better time to be a part of this exciting industry. Further innovations in this space are set to bring about even more advances as the world continues to evolve at a rapid rate.
Companies that research and implement construction technologies reap the benefits of enhanced efficiency, strengthened teamwork, and on-time and under-budget project execution, resulting in higher profit margins.
While obvious innovations such as robotics and 3D construction printing gain headlines, many technologies that improve building operational efficiencies arguably have much more of a positive impact.
Building regulations have been raising the pressure on building designers for decades in order to reduce the environmental impact of their projects and ensure their long-term viability. For years, building construction and service design have been motivated by improved energy efficiency and a need for low to zero carbon emissions. As a result, modern, higher-performance thermal materials such as Zenova IP and Zenova IR are being created, which promise to make future buildings extremely well-insulated at a fraction of the cost of current solutions.
Building regulations are also becoming much more stringent, understandably so, when it comes to fire safety. Few examples of this need for improved fire safety regulations compare to the Grenfell Tower tragedy in London on June 14, 2017 that claimed the lives of 72 people. A number of mistakes were made which caused and contributed to this disaster, prompting regulators and officials to take a deeper look at the failed system to ensure this can never happen again. As a result, more scrutiny will be required by manufacturers, property owners, businesses and government agencies to ensure compliance with the latest recommendations.
Zenova FP can easily be applied to compartmentalize any potential fire hazard zone, mitigating the ever-present risk being faced by this industry. Not only does Zenova FP restrict the spread of fire on any substrate, it also buys much-needed time for firefighters to respond to dangerous situations where every second counts.
