P.A.E.P.C. News
Week of August 12, 2012

P.A.E.P.C.: Planning. Architecture. Engineering. Procurement. Construction.

Each week there is such an overload of information and articles on the web it’s hard to pick out what’s important, valuable or even entertaining and worth your time.

Well, we decided to deliver our favorite headlines all in one place. Have other interesting articles or videos to add? Comment below, and we will include them in next week’s edition!

1. Engineering the 2012 Olympic Park

Sure, the Olympics may be over for 2012, but there’s at least a years worth of content from it! We loved this video about lessons learned from the engineering and construction of Olympic Park in London. Enjoy!

2. Collaboration Kitchen

Have you seen Kraft Foods’ Collaboration Kitchen? Basically, it’s a place where anyone can submit an idea and have the chance to collaborate with Kraft. Have a food or beverage idea you’ve been sitting on? Take a shot! They also have a list of current needs, mostly related to food science, if you happen to be a rock star in that area. We are big on collaboration here at ONEsource, (check out our tagline!) so we really like this idea.

3. Big Spending in the Carolinas

According to a press release on August 15, Industrial Info Resources out of Sugar Land, Texas has done a study and found that “plans for capital spending at food and beverage manufacturing and sites located in North Carolina and South Carolina are showing a robust $1.2 billion. However, the bulk of planned project activity falls on the northern side of the two states. Industrial Info has identified close to 50 active projects that are currently in the planning stage or early phase of construction within the Carolinas. Project expenditures range in value from $500,000 to $200 million.” Looks like the Carolinas are the place to be right now for food and beverage construction.
