Stop Construction Errors Before You Build

Whether you are building your dream home or nuclear plant construction errors can and do occur. The structure could not be up to code, or there can be miscommunication between architects and the engineers which could result in costly mistakes. This not only slows the construction process down, but it costs you, the owner, money. Yet errors can be resolved before construction even begins by implementing a PC Associates constructability review.

Consider a New York Times article that focused on the improper placement of cooling system protection devices at the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant. The error occurred because the construction blueprints failed to contain instructions to building engineers to flip the blueprint over for proper installation procedures. Protection devices were being added to two reactors. Instructions for the first reactor were on the front page and the second reactor details were on the reverse page. Yet, no details were given for this, resulting in improperly installed protective structures.

What Metals to Invest In

Getting Started in Precious Metals Investing

Precious Metals

Like any investment, precious metals can be risky if they are not approached right. However, informed precious metals investments are extremely low-risk, while also offering considerable potential for rewards. If you take the time to learn about the various precious metals and their markets, you will be able to accurately determine when to buy, when to sell, and when to hold. Investing in precious metals is not difficult. It just simply requires some learning on the buyer’s end.

The four most popular investment metals are gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, with gold taking the clear lead. Another option is rhodium, which is often overlooked by those who are looking in to the precious metals markets. Your first step is going to be to decide if you want to invest your money in multiple metals or just one. Having multiple metals will give you more of a safety net if something goes wrong, but it also means less profit if something goes right. You will want to determine whether your plan is to spread your money out for safety or make it grow by investing more into one metal.
