This month we have refocused our efforts on the construction, architecture and property spheres. After all, we’re seeing a steady and slow return to (somewhat) normal operations around the world. Of course, any movement from a standing position seems lightning fast in comparison, though this quarter’s inclusions certainly seem to be moving to make up for lost ground.
Just as there is no one-size-fits-all construction site, there are no one-size-fits-all construction uniforms. Of course, PPE and hazard protections should be taken into account, but how important is it to be able to wear work shorts on the construction site? Considering the different categories of work shorts for men and some tips on how to choose the best fit, here is why you should think about work shorts on your next construction job.
Smart home devices such as Alexa or Google Home are edging seamlessly into our lives and becoming items that increasing numbers of us use day in, day out, without even a second thought. If you’d place yourself in the not-so-tech-savvy category, fear not, as here’s some handy advice on how to set up your smart home.
As always, we endeavour to be your source for all the latest news and features from across the global construction and property industries. Whilst it is certainly a challenging time for the greater construction industry – to put it lightly – we hope to offer a brief respite by focusing on the successes and achievements of companies from across the world as they look to innovate in their areas of expertise.
Nearly everyone goes through a period in their life where they have to rent their living space. After you’ve experienced your fair share of apartments, you might want something different.

As summer quickly approaches, now’s a perfect opportunity to head outside and work on some projects. From painted front doors to backyard fire pits, there’s a ton of different ways to add a little curb appeal to your house. These ideas don’t take too much time or effort, either – which makes for an awesome weekend remodel.
In May 2016, one of the UK’s leading independent environmentalists, Chris Baines, wrote a thought-provoking article for the BBC’s Wildlife magazine. In the article, he put forward the novel idea that developments, such as the construction of high speed rail line HS2, could actually be good for nature. Controversial though this might be to environmentalists and naturalists, the fact is, with an increasing population comes an increasing need for more infrastructure. So, it’s never been more important to try to align the two problems; that is nature vs developments.
While the Government is mobilising resources, there are significant shortages for frontline staff in the NHS, GP practices and social care sectors. Cantillon and DeGroup are therefore encouraging the demolition and wider construction sector to retain a base stock of PPE, and make the rest available to those frontline services who need it far more at this time. You have the ability to save lives by doing so, no donation is too small!
