Projects on the house include an add-on to Bartlome’s bedroom that will give him a rehab workout area and a wheelchair accessible bathroom, wheelchair ramps, wood floors that will be easy to move around on, and a large concrete area outside. It’s a lot of work, but Danny Hinson, the project’s manager, says his crews aren’t having any trouble getting it done.
“A ton of people have come out of the woodwork just to help out, and they’ve donated everything,” Hinson told KBOI.
Construction Management’s 2014 Design Build Team Takes First at Reno
Paul was part of the design-build team. Design-build is a construction process that shortens project duration because construction begins prior to the design being completed.
“The design-build competition is unique in that the team not only has to come up with a construction proposal including cost estimate, schedule, site logistics plan, safety and quality control plans, but they are required to design a given structure from scratch,” said Keith Leonard, senior construction management major and president of Boise State’s Construction Management Association.
Tablets become more common at construction sites

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BOISE, Idaho — Boise State University professor Casey Cline isn’t waiting any longer to make the students in his construction management class more technologically savvy and ready for the professional world.
Starting this fall, all freshman enrolled in his class will be required to use iPads. The devices are essential, he says, to the new way of managing projects on site without the traditional paper and pens, from uploading data reports and photos to accounting for changes in job specs and safety materials.
“We saw the wave coming and want our students to be prepared,” Cline told The Idaho Business Review (Casey Cline’s interview).
Professionals in the construction field have been relatively slow to adopt new communications technology such as iPads and other tablet-style computers. But many and the industry in Idaho have realized recently that using tablets at job sites saves money and time.
