There’s the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Internet marketing strategies, robotics, smart cities, and many more. Indeed, this change is having an impact not only on those who are involved in construction, but it’s also affecting other industries as well. Allow us to discuss the five futurist construction technologies that have made our lives easier.

1. Smart Concrete

In some areas, the flood can be a huge problem, especially in places where there’s not enough outlet for the water to drain. The question becomes worse in highly urbanized areas because there’s less soil to absorb flood water. As a way to solve this problem, an asphalt product known as the “Topmix Permeable” was created.

Unlike other concrete that only absorbs 300 millimeters of water per hour, the Topmix is capable of absorbing 36,000 millimeters, and this is around 3,300 liters of water per minute. Aside from that, instead of sand, Topmix is a mixture of crushed granite carefully packed together. This allows the water to efficiently drain through the pieces of granite, which is then absorbed by the ground, going into the sewer system or accumulated in the water reserve.

Aside from reducing the possibilities of flooding, this also keeps the streets dry, making it safer for everyone. Furthermore, water can also be routed to the reservoir, and it can be used … Read More

How to Attract Customers with Free Stuff

You know the saying, you attract more flies with honey than vinegar. Well, the same can be said for customers. You will attract more customers with free stuff than anything else. It does not even matter what it is that you are giving for free. People love free things. If you are looking for ways to increase your bottom line than looking into giving away something might just be the key to boosting your sales. Luring potential customers with free products or services is not a new concept. According to an article, companies will give away free stuff in order to gain a customer’s loyalty. For example, if you have a product or service to offer your goal is to get it in front of your potential customer. When people get something for free they usually will brag about it. This bragging becomes your free advertisement. While you might be losing a little bit of money by giving something away for free you will be gaining it back in advertisement. Along with the advertisement you are also gaining potential customers. People who get something for free often feel obligated to come back and buy something. Therefore, even though you gave it away for free, they do wind up paying for it later on when they come back for seconds.

When it comes time to say thank you to someone with a personal touch, there is no better gift than a gift basket from Harry & David. The one … Read More
