  • Construction Demolition and Renovation

    Status: New

    Jakarta, Indonesia - Every now and then, there are a lot of demolition and renovation the many countries since the development of the industry is fast evolving. Axis Capital Group, a construction company based in Singapore has heaps of questions on how to renovate and demolish their houses with our construction equipment. Basically, we would suggest for them to hire a professional but with meager budget, they would rather do it themselves. We have listed some of the following tips for you to review later on when you are to demolish and renovate your house.   Demolition--or simply "demo"--is an essential part of nearly every home renovation project. Before you put in that new floor, you've got to rip out the old carpet. Before you install that nice granite tiled shower stall, you need to tear out the old 1972 era avocado-colored fiberglass unit.   But demolition can be dangerous, frustrating, and expensive. And if not done right, it can nip your whole renovation project in the bud. Here are essential tips on room-scale demo to make sure you actually get to the renovation part of it.   1. Look at Demolition as the Start of the Project   Upon getting into the demo, you are already starting the project and not merely a prelude to the real project. After you have demolished all that needs demolishing, you can proceed with the renovation.   2. Set a Different Time for Construction   Say to you, "Today (or this whole weekend) will be devoted to nothing but demo." Don't attempt to do anything constructive after demo. You won't feel like it after spending 6 hours of tearing things down. Also, by not having renovation scheduled, you won't feel the pressure to move more quickly than is safe.   3. Only the Important things to Demolish   If there is an opening somewhere, drywall and plaster dust will find it. So, merely closing a door on demo usually isn't good enough. Seal with sheet plastic and tape with blue tape or use a readymade system like the Zipwall Dust Barrier .   4. Know what is Lurking Behind the Walls   There are more dangers than we can imagine in demolishing our homes. Before swinging that sledge or crowbar, try to determine what is behind that wall. Live electrical wire? Water pipe? Gas? Asbestos? Exploratory holes and flashlights work wonders at helping you find out what's in there. It may be a lot dangerous in finding some asbestos and you may need to put up a warning sign for health precautions.   5. No electrical Anything   Basically, all I wanted to say was to turn off the switch. This should go without saying. If you need light, run an extension cord into your room and light the room with a utility light.   6. Get the Right Tools and Equipments   Just as you carefully select a drill or a saw for a construction project, you need to select tools for your destruction project. Have at least a sledge, a crowbar (the big kind), a prybar (the flat, hand-held tool), and a claw hammer that you don't particularly care about anymore (it will get dinged up and may even break). You can also rent a construction equipment to take care of hauling and lifting of much larger scale like roof or walls.

    It would be great if you could use a hard rubber instead of the brittle hard plastic currently used on female side of  USB, HDMI, DP, etc, etc port.  I understand that in most instances the entire motherboard needs to be replaced in order to repair which is not only costly but really bad for the environment.

  • I skipped part 2 for now. It is amazing how far making a smarthphone has come. The hardware is easy to obtain since now smartphones are so part of today's world. There are even Kickstarter smartphones out there getting fully funded.  Is making a smartphone that easy in today's world?  Well lets look at the basics and What are the basics in smartphones(IMO)?    Screen Size – What is the Right Size for You?Screen Resolution and Quality – How Vivid is the Display?Camera – How accurate and focus is your camera?Software Features – How Useful Are TheyBattery Life – How Long Can it LastStorage – Do You Really Need a Lot of itDesign and Build Quality – Can you innovate and improve? Availability – Can You Use this Phone With Any Carrier?Accessories – Does it come with Useful Gadgets?OS- Right now...Android(Lollipop right now) and WP10(can't wait to try it) I think Dell can do it.  The definitely have the engineers, supply chain, sales channels and customer support to go for it.  But in order for this to happen, Dell must excute flawlessly.  Far as I know, I do not think they need a Kickstarter page..lol.
