Olympic stadium set for redevelopment

Posted: 30 May 2013 12:00 PM PDT
The Olympic Stadium in London is ready for improvement work to prepare it for future events and new occupants.
One of the most recognisable venues of the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Olympic Stadium will soon become the new home of West Ham United Football Club and is set to host a number of other sporting and entertainment events.
In order to accommodate these future usages, the stadium will be redeveloped into a 60,000 seater venue, which can be extended to 80,000 capacity for concerts and entertainment events.
A retractable seating area will also be developed, which will be able to cover the athletic track during football games and rolled back once more for specific events.
Furthermore, the stadium will include a new lower-tier of seating. An extension to the roof will also be developed in order to shield spectators from adverse weather.
West Ham United will play their home games at the stadium from August 2016 onwards, as the side look to move from their current home The Boleyn Ground (otherwise known as Upton Park), which has stood in East Ham since 1904.
Planning for the scheme has now been approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), with the project set to cost in the region of £439 million. Construction work will begin later this year, supporting a number of jobs for people in the UK capital.
Dennis Hone, chief executive of the LLDC, hailed the “important milestone” for the project, saying:
“As we prepare for the phased reopening of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this summer, with the long-term future of all eight permanent venues on the Park now secure, we remain firmly on track to deliver a meaningful physical and social legacy for Londoners,”
Further changes to the building will see two new support buildings, extra turnstiles and a two-storey building for concessions. A BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for energy efficient buildings is expected to be achieved following completion.

Australian construction industry positive on growth

Posted: 30 May 2013 02:00 PM PDT
Master Builders Australia (MBA) has painted a positive picture for the state of the construction industry in the southern hemisphere country, with forecasts of mixed recovery across three major sectors.
The figures are based on positive growth paths for the next three years, up to 2015-16. However, the MBA is warning that the current economic conditions still place “many significant headwinds” on the progress of recovery over the next few years.
Residential building, non-residential building and engineering construction are all the areas in which growth has been predicted. If this is achieved, a number of jobs in construction could be created in the coming years through an increase in activity and investment.
Firstly, in regards to residential construction, the MBA suggests the value of work done is to improve strongly from a low base in the coming three years. The organisation suggests that costs could grow to AUD $60.9 billion in 2015-16 from the AUD $46.2 billion baseline set in 2012-13.
Property construction is expected to grow year on year, with 164,000 expected to commence in 2013/14, 179,000 in 2014/15 and 183,000 in 2015/16. The growth in dwelling construction is even more positive due to 2014/15 potentially marking a high in housing construction since it peaked in 2004 at 175,000.
Chief economist for Master Builders Australia Peter Jones suggested that Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia would be the key areas for growth, but kept in mind the risks associated with economic uncertainty and consumer confidence.
“The improvement in the Residential Building outlook comes from a very low base and the challenge remains for policy makers to address supply side inefficiencies and impediments that have contributed to the nation’s growing housing shortfall,” he added.
While non-residential construction is expected to show a decline between 2012-13 in real terms, the MBA suggest that commercial and industrial sectors could help to boost the industry in the subsequent years. However, weakness is still expected in institutional sectors and education construction.
Values for non-residential work have been predicted to improve to $33.9 billion in the final year of the three-year estimation.
Despite this minor encouragement in the industry, the level of work to be completed by the end of the forecast time is still expected to be lower than what was recorded in 2009-10, representing a need to further stimulate this particular sector.
“For Non-Residential Building, strongest performing states are forecast to be New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, with industrial, retail and office building leading the way,” Mr Jones suggested.
The engineering construction sector will see a relative decline in growth over the next few years, but will still remain strong due to the heights reached during the resources investment boom, which is soon set to reach its peak.
Whereas 2012-13 is predicted to see a 5.4 per cent rise, there is expected to be a fall of 12 per cent in the next three years.
Although an eventual 12 per cent decline in growth can be perceived as a negative factor, the stability of the sector as a whole should keep engineering construction above water for the next few years.
“After very strong growth, Engineering Construction activity in the Northern Territory, Western Australia and Queensland are forecast to fall back, albeit remaining at extremely high levels in an historical context. Victoria and Tasmania look set to benefit from stronger infrastructure spending,” Mr Jones stated.
Australia will welcome this predicted growth with open arms and look towards further expansion of projects in the coming years to help support this growth beyond the originally estimated timescale.
Now might be the time to look for work down under, with a number of skilled jobs set to be up for grabs, especially in the three aforementioned sectors of encouraging activity.

IMF backs infrastructure investment

Posted: 30 May 2013 04:00 PM PDT
With the UK economy still stuttering, the International Monetary Foundation (IMF) has suggested that chancellor George Osborne’s austerity policy should be offset by spending in infrastructure.
The IMF has said that there are some signs of growth in the UK, but it is still “far from strong”. It has been suggested by the organisation that plans for infrastructure spending should be brought forward in order to rebalance the economy and encourage sustainable recovery.
Infrastructure has been one of the long-standing sectors that has been recommended as a way to boost the economy and tackle the financial crisis.
Deputy managing director of the IMF David Lipton said: “Recent data suggest some improvement in economic and financial conditions, which is encouraging.
“But the UK has a long way to go. Investment has been persistently weak and unemployment, especially among young people, is high.”
Not only would infrastructure spending help to increase construction jobs and reduce wider unemployment, but further work will see more encouragement for businesses to invest in the UK.

¿Cuánto debe mi ayuntamiento?

CINCODIAS 30-06-2013
Cada español debería abonar 747 euros para dejar la deuda municipal, que asciende a 35.290 millones, a cero. Sin embargo, existen muchas diferencias entre municipios. De hecho, cuatro de cada diez pueden presumir de no deber ni un euro.El saneamiento de unos contrasta con la mala situación de otros. Con el buscador elaborado por Cinco Días podrá saber cuál es la deuda de su pueblo y cuánto debe cada vecino.
El pueblo más endeudado de España es Monasterio de la Sierra, en Burgos. “¿Somos los primeros? El año pasado éramos los segundos”. Así habla Jesús María Esteban, alcalde de este pequeño pueblo de Burgos que superó en 2012 a Aguilar de Segarra (Barcelona), indiscutible líder de la particular clasificación hasta ahora. Los lugareños de Monasterio de Sierra –48 según el INE y 46 según la actualización del alcalde del Partido Popular– deben algo más de 8.500 euros cada uno. La construcción de una casa rural de titularidad municipal y la paralización de la obra del pantano de Castrovido –que debía aportar ingresos al municipio a través del cobro del IBI– explican la situación.

OHL entra en el metro de Doha con un contrato de 1.100 millones


El contrato, ganado por un consorcio en el que participan OHL, Samsung C&T y la empresa local Qatar Building Company, consiste en el diseño y construcción de las estaciones Msheireb y Education City.

El importe total del contrato asciende a unos 5.100 millones de reales catarís (unos 1.100 millones de euros), de los que 400 millones corresponderán a la obra civil y el resto a trabajos electromecánicos y de arquitectura.

Estas dos estaciones serán edificios “modernos” e incluirán intercambiadores entre las distintas líneas de metro y otros transportes, como el ferrocarril de larga distancia. La estación de Msheireb será la más importante de Doha, al estar ubicada en el centro de la ciudad, que actualmente se encuentra en pleno proceso de regeneración.

Por su parte, la estación de Education City estará situada junto a las que serán algunas de las principales instituciones educativas del Golfo y conectará con el ferrocarril, ya que este complejo pretende acoger estudiantes de toda la región.

OHL ya está presente en Qatar mediante su participación en la construcción del Centro Médico y de Investigación de Sidra, presupuestado en unos 2.000 millones de euros. Además, también forma parte de la ejecución de dos destacados proyectos en el Golfo, el viaducto Jamal Abdul Nasser en Kuwait y el ferrocarril de alta velocidad entre La Meca y Medina, en Arabia Saudí.

Worldwide airport construction projects announced

Posted: 29 May 2013 04:00 AM PDT
A number of airport construction deals have been announced across the globe recently, in a timely announcement in the run-up to peak holiday season.
The construction of new airports and improvement works on old ones will help increase tourism in the country in question, as well as improve links to the country and increase the opportunities for trade.
Not only that, but construction work will obviously help to create jobs in the sector, with skilled workers in particular keeping their eyes out for projects which could make the best of their capabilities.
Starting on home shores, plans have been unveiled for an extension of Stansted airport in the UK capital.
It has long been suggested that the UK requires more airport and runway capacity, with a number of areas vying to the right to increase their capacity.
Stansted is looking like one of the forerunners to become an international airport hub, helped by its easy access to London.
Whilst being close to the centre of one of the global business locations, the airport is just far enough away so that planes will not have to fly over the main city area.
Make Architects has now released evidence from their own studies which champion Stansted as a potential area for airport expansion.
Proposals suggest that work could be conducted at a cost of £18 billion and provide some £100 billion in investment for the east of the UK.
Founder of Make Ken Shuttleworth said: “We have proved that Stansted is a viable option, deliverable, affordable and linking to central London in less than 30 minutes, crucially ensuring the distribution of growth and economic development to benefit the national population.”
Across the Atlantic, Washington Dulles International Airport is in line for a very different kind of improvement, with a deal signed to build a metro line to improve access to the site.
A deal has been signed by Clark Construction Group and Kiewit Infrastructure South to bring the project to reality, with work set to feature the construction of six stations and an 18km addition to the Silver Line.
The project will be delivered at an estimated cost of USD $1.2 billion (£790 million).
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority CEO and president Jack Potter said: “This is the first of many milestones to come for the second phase of the Silver Line.
“Its completion will improve the transportation options for those traveling through the region and serve as a major driver for the local economy,” he added.
In India, a new airport has been planned for construction in 2015, with a feasibility study to be completed by February next year, the Indian Express has reported.
The international airport is set to be located in the Pune – part of the Chakan-Rajgurunagar belt.
An official has told reporters that the airport will have two six-kilometer runways running parallel to each other, with the airport to be in the same area.
Two airport related stories have emerged recently which both involve Turkey.
The first is the construction of a new airport in Istanbul, the third for the country’s largest city.
Turkish newspaper The Lira reported the news on Monday (May 20th), saying that an agreement has been signed by the Ministry of Transport, Shipping and Communications of Turkey and the consortium Limak-Kolin-Cengiz-MaPa-Kalyon – who will deliver the airport’s construction.
The airport, set to be built in the Lake Terkos region of the city, is expected to be used by 150 million passengers every year once it is completed.
Turkish construction company TAV has also put in a bid for the construction of airports in Kuwait and Bahrain.
Speaking to Construction Week, Middle East director for TAV Yusuf Akcayoglu said that the construction company is now waiting on tender documents to be released for both potential projects.
For those with experience in airport-based construction, it is worth researching worldwide roles, which could provide lucrative work for someone with a specific skill set.

Cómo Vender Más: Los 5 impulsos naturales que nos hacen comprar

Cada vez tengo más claro que el Marketing tiene un componente muy importante de psicología. Saber cómo las personas toman decisiones, saber cuales son los instintos naturales que nos impulsan a desear algo o conocer los elementos que realmente tenemos en cuenta para atribuir valor a un producto o servicio puede hacer que tu negocio tenga éxito o fracase.
En este post en concreto quiero resaltar cuales son los 5 grandes impulsos naturales que nos influencian a la hora de tomar decisiones o llevar a cabo acciones, incluyendo la compra de un producto o servicio:
El impulso de “Adquirir”
No cabe duda que tenemos un impulso natural por adquirir cosas, ya sean objetos físicos como un coche, una casa, un teléfono móvil, o cosas inmateriales como status, poder e influencia.
Cientos de miles de negocios viven de este impulso de adquirir cosas que queremos tener pero que en la mayoría de los casos no necesitamos. Además, cualquier negocio cuya premisa sea hacernos más ricos, poderosos o influyentes (o por lo menos aparentarlo) conecta perfectamente con este impulso.
El impulso de “Agradar”
Todas las personas tenemos un impulso natural por el que queremos agradar a los demás, sentirnos valorados, establecer relaciones (ya sean de amistad o de amor), etc. Los negocios que nos ayudan a establecer estas relaciones y fortalecerlas, como bares, restaurantes, discotecas, eventos, servicios para encontrar pareja, etc, conectan con este impulso.
Del mismo modo lo hacen todas las empresas o negocios que nos ayudan a ser más atractivos o gustar más a la gente como pueden ser los servicios de estética, moda, complementos, etc.
El impulso de “Aprender”
El ser humano es curioso por naturaleza y siempre quiere aprender cosas nuevas. Muchísimos negocios están basados en este impulso como la formación, los medios de comunicación, el mundo editorial, etc. Cualquier empresa que prometa hacernos más “cultos” o tener más conocimiento conectan directamente con este impulso.
El impulso de “Defendernos”
Todos tenemos in instinto que nos hace defendernos a nosotros mismos, nuestras propiedades y a las personas que queremos. Negocios que nos ayudan a sentirnos más seguros conectan con este impulso natural. Algunos ejemplos son las empresas que venden Alarmas y Sistemas de Seguridad, Compañías de Seguros, clases de artes marciales, etc…
El impulso de “Sentir”
La necesidad de nuevos estímulos, experiencias, placer, entretenimiento es el último de los 5 impulsos básicos del ser humano. Muchos negocios se basan en este impulso. Algunos ejemplos son la industria del cine, los eventos deportivos, restaurantes, agencias de viajes, etc…
Conocer estos impulsos naturales del ser humano te puede ayudar a valorar una idea de negocio o a darte cuenta cual de estas necesidades básicas cubre tu producto o servicio de modo que puedas utilizarlo como un argumento de venta fundamental.
