For this week’s discussion, what journal articles have you been able to find that help with your topic research? Post your comments and respond to two other student comments by the end of the week.
The journal articles that I have been able to find that have helped with my research, are articles that relate to how different projects have used the phases of the construction process in different ways. The journal articles have focused on value engineering and cost effective ways to plan out a project in the front end. The articles talk about research in the planning stages of construction and making sure everyone understands the communication pipe line for a project. This eliminates any confusion in the future for everyone on the project team. The main articles I have found have to do with the medical field and building hospitals. Hospitals have so many details in the project and may be difficult to build because of the circumstances. The articles have published material to help other builders, clients, and architects in the future.
World economies are growing at a fast rate. The need for sustainable housing developments and healthy buildings is more important than ever. The journals and articles from EU LIRN database have numerous articles involving LEED. One of the many I have chosen is called Going Green: Aluminum’s Role in Sustainability . Aluminum reflects solar heat and is lightweight and most importantly recyclable . Using aluminum provides greener options.

To my research, I have found most helpfully the academic studies from different universities database. I know that may sound vague, but the topic I have chosen for my capstone is “reinforced concrete”, and there are almost infinity possibilities of information in so many ways; like what it is, its applications, its types, when and how to use it.
