This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The safety of construction workers who toil in close proximity to cranes garnered congressional attention after tower cranes were involved in multiple fatalities at buildings under construction in 2008 (e.g., nine deaths in two incidents in New York City). Additional crane-related fatalities occurred since the House Education and Labor Committee held a hearing on construction worker safety in June 2008.

Provides guidance in the selection, design, construction, and operation of subsurface flow constructed wetlands. The information is necessary, especially for small communities, where there has been considerable effort to construct and maintain treatment facilities cost-efficiently, capitalizing on the minimal energy requirements of this technology. Contents: factors capable of influencing performance expectations; design and construction considerations (calculating design require., recommended design and construction considerations); and operational considerations.

Presents 3 alternative technologies for conventional residential construction: foam-core structural sandwich panels, light-gauge metal framing, and welded-wire sandwich panels. The feasibility, quality, and costs associated with each method are evaluated. By evaluating the design and construction of homes with alternative materials, this report will stimulate builders to investigate building materials options more thoroughly. Background chapter discusses the use and costs of lumber in residential construction. Directory section. 75 tables and photos.
