Generations in Construction

With the Boomers starting to retire, the Millennials beginning to outnumber the GenXers in the workforce, and those of Generation Z now starting to enter the workforce, we are seeing changes in work patterns. In this article we look at the generation shift and its effects on the construction industry.

PDF has become a popular format for transferring documents to others, but the types of information that a file contains can vary, affecting its usefulness. Here we look at the PDF Coalition's efforts to bring about consistency with the PDF documents.


Intrigue & Increases
