What used to take me hours now takes me just minutes. I can plan and schedule my job again.
No longer am I searching the web for the right resource, files.construction has all of the documents I need to do my job.
Each of my teams now uses the same documents across their projects - keeps us all on the same page.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted its building and
fire safety investigation of the World Trade Center (WTC) disaster of September 11,
2001, under the authority of the National Construction Safety Team (NCST) Act. The
NCST’s Final Report includes 30 recommendations that address (1) specific
improvements to building standards, codes, and practices; (2) changes to, or the
establishment of, evacuation and emergency response procedures; and, (3) research and
other appropriate actions needed to help prevent inappropriate future building failures in
fire situation. As part of NIST’s plan to implement the report’s recommendations
regarding new methods for fire resistance design of structures, NIST intends to develop
an international research and development (R&D) roadmap on the fire resistance of
structures. To support the development of the roadmap, NIST held a workshop on large-
scale experimental and modelling fire resistance of structures research needs. NIST has
commissioned three White Papers, to be used as the basis for technical discussions at the
workshop. This effort will provide input for prioritizing and coordinating international
research activities and facilitate the development of advanced validated tools for the
performance-based engineering fire resistant design of structures.
