It keeps a lot of the heat out but not all. In... 3 More Answers

What's the cost implementation going to be like? Basically, what are the pros and cons of using BIM?
In order to work, BIM is a full-bodied process. Every trade has to participate - first, they have to be committed to accurately placing their equipment into their drawings in 3D in order to do clash detection, then all parties need to have all the plug-ins to be able see and evaluate everyone else's work. Next, you will need to manage the pro... 3 More Answers

What's the roof like on the iT house project? I quite like it but unsure about the cost.
I think that as demonstrated with this project, flat roofs can be just as attractive as pitched ones. it all comes down to the look you are trying to achieve.

The advantage of a flat roof is that it can also accommodate a deck a... 1 More Answer
