Educational engineering books that are fun to read and informative are sadly few and far between. A new release from Kate Ascher, the author of The Works: Anatomy of a City, called The Heights – Anatomy of a Skyscraper provides a detailed insight into the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of these most urban of structures.

As a creative, yet industrial professional, utility is not far from my mind when assessing options, but in many cases, particularly where daily human interaction is part of the design scope, aesthetics is of equal importance. Simply put, in the age of technology, an object must be able to be easy to use, and it’s […]
There are not too many blogs that I’ve found out there providing quality links to construction materials and products of use to the builder and those in the industry. Perhaps the assumption is that these people are too busy to hanging around on the internet blogging all day.

On top of all that I also know a bit about Search Engine Optomisation and the value of of cross links and relevant review posts on relevant blogs. This is one reason why I’m happy to participate in paid promotion of products or pages that may alos be of use to my readers.
But really, I didn’t know much about the existence of products such as photoluminescent exit signs , but now that I’ve read up on them it seems rather obvious! The thought of getting stuck in a high rise building without knowing which way to go to get out is pretty scary, and that’s why there is legislation in all developed countries regarding the installation of Exit Signs.

This site is authored by the Exit Store, which I had a browse of and thought was extremely comprehensive and well organised. The webite aims at and links to US sources, which makes sense for a US based company.
