Installations are often a practically invisible part of a building. Miles of cables, piping, tubes and wires are concealed behind the ceilings, floors, walls and foundations. The facilities themselves are tucked behind voids or form unsightly blemishes on rooftops.
Materials and manufacturing processes remains an essential component of industrial design education. But for many students and young designers, they are still unsure of their comfort with these complex issues and how they affect their designs.
In recent years advanced materials have emerged and are having a major impact on the products around us. Coming from science and technology advanced materials can outperform traditional materials as they for instance can be tougher, can withstand higher temperatures, and can be tailored into new shapes.
The increasing availability of product environmental information provides an opportunity for consumers to choose more sustainable products and for designers to be rewarded for selecting more sustainable materials. Here are some tips on how to do this.
Biomimetics is on everyone’s lips and it is now difficult to imagine a future where it does not play a key role in the development of our society. The development of new materials is not unconcerned with this new discipline, though we must be aware of what we can obtain (and what we cannot) from imitating nature.
One of the most significant future transformations in the material sphere will be the development of a carbohydrate economy. This will be a global economy based primarily on renewable material feedstocks—as opposed to our current economy, which is founded largely on fossil fuels.
If you carefully observe designed objects around you, perhaps you may find the unspoken process of their birth. Their ingredients and parts should come from somewhere in this globe, and mixed and combined together in a factory of somewhere, through hands and ideas of somebodies.

Choosing Pressure Washing Equipment
As you begin to plan and build your business, there are many challenging decisions. So choosing the best pressure washing equipment for your business is a one of those important decisions. One of the terms you will hear most often is, what is your business model going to be? Likewise, the questioner is trying to determine what type of business are you going to be going after. Residential and Commercial cleaning can be two different types of cleaning, requiring different types of equipment. Notice I said can be? They can also be very similar, and can be done the with the same exact equipment.
One of the things I like to do in our school is to help you choose pressure washing equipment. Especially when selecting equipment for the type of work you plan to do. While I do not sell equipment, (yet) I do have several trusted vendors that I can recommend. They will provide you quotes for exactly what you need. And they not try to over sell you or sell you items you do not need. If you only intend to clean houses, not roofs, there is no need for a dedicated pump. Soft Washing vinyl siding, stucco, eifs, and even brick houses come clean with a pressure washer and the correct nozzles. The only time a dedicated pump would be needed is if you are planning to clean roofs.
Dedicated pumps that are powered by a 12V battery, or even some air diaphragm pumps, are really best suited for cleaning roofs and the occasional small house or building. If you are planning to get into large upscale homes and commercial buildings, then choosing pressure washing equipment that has a high volume pump, like 5-10 gpm will enable you to clean much faster, making you more profitable. These types of pumps allow you to not only to get your detergents on a large surface faster, they will also provide much faster and more thorough rinsing.
Never buy Pressure Washing Equipment that will not make you profitable
I am more than happy to assist any student of my school with the choosing the best pressure washing equipment for your business. Usually after a short consultation I can pin point your exact needs and then refer you to a vendor that will build your system and provide much needed support after the sale.
