Aggreko says considered approach needed to address humidity threat to construction projects from latest storms

Aggreko says considered approach needed to address humidity threat to construction projects from latest storms

With the opening days of 2024 seeing widespread flooding across Europe in the wake of Storm Henk, temporary power and temperature control solutions provider, Aggreko, is raising awareness within the construction industry of the risks to projects posed by high humidity and advocating a strategic approach to dehumidification.    Using the wrong equipment could lead to potential long-term issues for construction projects, with Aggreko advising that solely relying on heaters to dry sites could cause issues, as flooding continues to worsen across the UK and Europe. Storm Henk continues a long-term trend. According to the Met Office, the period between 1991 to 2020 was an average 1.75% wetter than the period 1981-2010 and 7% wetter than 1961-1990 for the UK overall, which shows that the issue of increased rainfall is only getting worse[1]. The European Union recently published figures showing that over 14,000 areas across its member states are at significant risk of flooding, amid a year that has seen widespread disruption[2]. This inclement weather can cause problems for construction sites, especially with the issue of humidity which can cause irreparable damage to critical assets, particularly when there is excess rainfall. According to moisture control experts at Aggreko, relative humidity on construction sites should be kept within an optimal range of 40-60%. Dehumidification systems help to reduce humidity, meaning that these issues can be eliminated before they cause problems and bring delays. Relying on heating systems, which are less effective at reducing humidity levels, can cause more damage to building materials and structures. This potentially can lead to issues such as increased mould growth, creating a deceptive sense of dryness and increased condensation. Tom Adlington, Building Services & Construction Sector Sales Manager at Aggreko UK & Ireland said: “Flooding, such as that seen over the new year, has the potential to cause time delays and budget problems for a construction site. Which is why it’s imperative the right approach to dehumidification is taken. “Heat alone cannot sufficiently dehumidify a site, which is why we advocate for a combined solution. This incorporates various technologies, including industrial dehumidifiers, to provide heat, air movement and moisture removal. Combining products such as power, dehumidification and heating can help create a complete solution that reduces project costs without compromising on reliability.

The Strengths of Hybrid and Electric Construction Equipment In Construction

The Strengths of Hybrid and Electric Construction Equipment In Construction

The paramount concern for environmental sustainability in our era prompts a transformative shift within the construction industry towards greener and more eco-friendly practices. The adoption of hybrid and electric construction equipment stands at this evolution’s forefront, revolutionizing builders’ and contractors’ project approaches. This article delves into the burgeoning trend of using such equipment; it scrutinizes not only its environmental benefits but also posits potential implications on industries while highlighting these technologies’ integral role in shaping sustainable building practices. The Rise of Hybrid and Electric Construction Equipment Diesel engines, renowned for their power and durability yet notorious for high emissions and fuel consumption, usually serve as the backbone of traditional construction machinery. However; a new era emerges with hybrid and electric equipment in construction—marking a departure from this standard approach—to provide an alternative that is cleaner: more sustainable. Combining traditional internal combustion engines with electric propulsion systems characterizes hybrid construction equipment. Advanced technologies underpin these systems, optimizing fuel efficiency and minimizing emissions. Conversely, fully electric construction equipment functions exclusively on electric power; this eliminates the necessity for any usage of fossil fuels. Aligning with global initiatives to reduce carbon footprints and combat climate change, this shift gravitates towards electrification. Environmental Benefits of Hybrid and Electric Construction Equipment The significantly reduced environmental impact stands as a prime advantage of hybrid and electric construction equipment: traditional diesel-powered machinery contributes to air pollution–emitting pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, particulate matter; this causes respiratory issues. Electric construction equipment offers an attractive contrast; it yields zero tailpipe emissions–a factor that promotes cleaner air quality not only on construction sites but also within surrounding communities. Moreover, electric motors outperform internal combustion engines in terms of energy efficiency; this superiority consequently reduces overall energy consumption. The resultant decrease not only mitigates the demand for fossil fuels but also delivers long-term cost savings to construction companies. Industry Implications and Adoption Challenges Both challenges and opportunities accompany the adoption of hybrid and electric construction equipment in the industry: notably, a major hurdle emerges–the higher upfront cost of these technologies relative to traditional machinery. Nevertheless, with advancing technology and increasing production scales; an expected decrease in costs promises to render these sustainable options more accessible for a broader range of construction companies. Promoting eco-friendly construction practices, government incentives and regulations also encourage the adoption of hybrid and electric equipment; specific environmental standards necessitate their use in many regions. Adopting sustainable machinery can contribute to compliance with these regulations, thereby enhancing construction projects’ adherence to environmental criteria. Operational Advantages of Hybrid and Electric Construction Equipment Hybrid and electric construction equipment, aside from their environmental advantages, gain popularity due to the operational benefits they offer: Electric motors yield instant torque – a performance that rivals or surpasses traditional engines. Furthermore; these machines function with reduced noise pollution on construction sites–a critical yet often overlooked aspect for worker wellbeing and nearby communities’ welfare. The greater design flexibility that electric drivetrains offer, due to their modular nature, often results in innovative equipment configurations: these not only enhance efficiency but also maneuverability. Lower maintenance costs and increased reliability are direct benefits; this can be attributed to two factors – the absence of traditional transmissions, coupled with the simplicity of electric motors. Supply Chain Accessibility and Support The accessibility of hybrid and electric machinery through a dependable construction equipment supplier is a pivotal consideration for construction companies exploring these technologies. When construction firms collaborate with suppliers boasting robust supply chains, they guarantee an uninterrupted procurement process; this reduces potential challenges and delays in acquiring essential equipment. Addressing Range Anxiety The limitation imposed by battery range presents a significant challenge in the realm of electric construction equipment; however, ongoing advancements in battery technology are actively addressing this concern. Notably, Lithium-ion batteries– becoming more energy-dense, lightweight and cost-effective — have surmounted their previous limitations: as a result, they render electric construction machinery not just feasible but highly advantageous for an expanding spectrum of projects. The Future of Sustainable Construction Practices The construction industry’s continued prioritization of sustainability promises a bright future for hybrid and electric construction equipment. Ongoing technological advancements in these areas, combined with an increasing awareness regarding the environmental impact of construction activities, are positioning electric machinery as a crucial actor in shaping the industry’s evolution. Embracing hybrid and electric equipment, construction companies contribute not only to a greener planet but also position themselves as leaders in sustainable building practices. The demand for eco-friendly construction solutions is likely to escalate; regulatory requirements, environmental consciousness—both significant influencers—and the enduring economic benefits of reduced operating costs coupled with increased efficiency will drive this increase. Concluding, the construction industry’s integration of hybrid and electric equipment represents a positive stride towards sustainability and environmental consciousness. As technology advances incessantly–and adoption proliferates exponentially–the commitment to cleaner, greener building practices will reshape our construction landscape with unprecedented efficiency. This investment in these technologies transcends mere machinery; it manifests as an avant-garde stake for both sectors—the future resilience of constructions along with planetary sustainability at large.

Arco launches circular hi-vis range with recycling start-up

Arco launches circular hi-vis range with recycling start-up

Arco, the UK’s leading safety company, has launched a new responsible hi-visibility clothing range designed in collaboration with Stuff4Life, a polyester recycling start-up that features garments designed for circularity. The eight initial launch items include short-sleeve t-shirts, short sleeve and long sleeve polo shirts, waistcoats, sweatshirts, fleeces, softshells and overcoats. As a key supplier of hi-visibility clothing, Arco is committed to addressing the problem of what to do with garments that have reached the end of their useful life. As a result, the garments in the responsible hi-vis range have been designed to last longer, are made from certified recycled and responsibly sourced materials and developed with end of life in mind, focussing on the recyclability of materials. Designed with life-extending features, the responsible hi-vis range has been developed to increase the longevity of the clothing. Garments are tested to retain integrity, dimensional stability, UV protection and colourfastness to above the average number of washes – knitwear and trousers are certified for up to 50 washes – twice the typical use cycle – which reduces the need for replacement and reduces carbon emissions. All garments are made using 100% Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified recycled polyester and have been sourced and produced ethically by GRS-certified manufacturers*. To improve efficiency and reduce additional component usage, labelling has been printed directly onto the garment. All additional components, including poppers, toggles, zips, ribs, cuffs, neckbands and collars, are made from recycled polyester so do not need to be removed before entering the recycling process.The hi-vis range has been developed in conjunction with Stuff4Life and can be recycled using their patent-pending chemical recycling solution that’s currently being scaled-up. Once a garment comes to the end of its life, the recovered materials from the recycling process become valuable raw materials that can be transformed back into new polyester yarn for garment production over and over again. This more sustainable approach to re-creating raw materials helps to significantly decrease the environmental footprint of manufacturing, playing a pivotal role in the shift towards a circular economy.Dalvir Sarkaria, Product and Procurement Manager at Arco said: “Customers are placing growing significance on making responsible product choices. As a result, we recognised a clear requirement to develop and introduce a new range of products with the aim of supporting customers to achieve their sustainability objectives.“The launch of our Arco Responsible hi-vis range is an exciting moment for us and demonstrates our continued commitment to delivering on our strategic plan for sustainability – A Safe Tomorrow – and by supporting our customers’ desires to make responsible choices for their business. Using a complete circular approach, the range can offer assurance to customers with proven sustainable credentials whilst remaining excellent quality and competitively priced.” John Twitchen, Founder of Stuff4Life, commented: “We’ve worked closely with Arco’s product development team on the new range. Our input has helped to reduce the impact of garments in design, in use and at end of life. In tandem, we have developed our polyester depolymerisation process to ensure the maximum recovery of polyester-rich garments and enable the supply of as-good-as-new products back into the supply chain, driven by the ambition of delivering a truly circular process.” The Arco Responsible hi-vis clothing line includes garments that have been designed for all weathers and temperatures and conform to the relevant hi-vis safety standards. The range includes interactive outdoor clothing and garments with UV protection, wicking properties and other practical features.

Leeds Beckett and Coltraco collaborate to develop a novel low-cost building airtightness testing tool

Building performance experts at Leeds Beckett University have teamed up with world-leading technology manufacturers, Coltraco Ultrasonics, to develop their Portascanner® Airtight, a novel rapid low-cost ultrasonic device which can be used to quickly assess and quantify the airtightness performance of a building. The Portascanner® Airtight is a handheld tool which uses ultrasound to detect and locate air leakage sites. It is the first system of its kind to also quantify the extent of any air leakage. The tool can be applied to both new and existing buildings, so can be used before, during and after building or renovation. The new collaboration between Coltraco and Leeds Beckett University has been funded by the Government through Innovate UK to develop, evaluate, and optimise the use of the Portascanner® Airtight – creating an improved version of the product, along with best practice guides and training materials for professionals. Dr David Johnston, Professor of Building Performance Evaluation in the Leeds Sustainability Institute at Leeds Beckett University, said: “The airtightness performance of building fabric can have a significant impact on energy use and CO2 emissions. Therefore, it is important to develop low-cost tools that are capable of rapidly assessing and quantifying the airtightness performance of a building, providing an alternative to existing methods of testing airtightness. All of these tools will be important in helping the UK meet its Net Zero obligations.” The project will assess the use of the new technology within both a controlled and real-world environment. This will be used to design and develop a rigorous, best-practice process. The team will also compare the technology with other airtightness testing technologies – such as blower door fans – to assess the accuracy of the Portascanner® Airtight and how it compliments tried and tested existing technologies. The team also plan to make improvements to the technology, including upgrading the hardware to include a wireless sensor, and developing and testing a mount for a geostationary drone, to hold the generator in place on external structures for tall buildings. Daniel Dobrowolski, Senior Physicist – Research, Development, Design, and Ergonomics at Coltraco Ultrasonics, said: “We are committed to evaluating the benefits of the Portascanner® Airtight as a rapid testing tool through a systematic empirical study and so this project is a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with the academic experts. The research we undertake with Leeds Beckett will aid professional airtightness testers, building services engineers, and building surveyors to confidently take full advantage of Coltraco’s innovative technology to improve building airtightness and, ultimately, building sustainability.” Professor Johnston added: “We look forward to further developing our relationship with Coltraco, and demonstrating how industry and universities can work together to improve the sustainability of the built environment in the UK.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals
