Dynamic Glass
With six different exterior shades of glass in the building skin, the 90-story Wanda Vista mixed-use high-rise tower presents a dynamic look as weather conditions change on the Chicago Skyline. In New York, Corning Glass has a marketing lab where dynamic glass windows are demonstrated for inquisitive homebuilders and developers. Each window has its own IP address, allowing a range of shading options driven by a mobile phone software app.
Transparent Solar Panels
The solar cells are so thin they become translucent and even transparent. This would allow the cells to be applied on top of a surface and be virtually invisible. Estimates are that using coated windows in a skyscraper could provide more than 25% of the building’s energy needs.

Studies hope to develop transparent solar cells that are efficient and can be placed on a variety of surfaces and objects, creating energy-harvesting systems without altering the design. 

Accelerated construction schedules, new technologies, and a lack of skilled or trained labor, can result in an increase in construction problems.
Our quality assurance app, CaptureQA®, identifies and reports issues in the field in real time. LJP Construction Services has tracked data from inspections of hundreds of construction projects of all building types nationwide.
"Our goal at LJP Construction Services is to offer extensive knowledge and skill sets that are unrivaled in the industry. We are here to assist with your construction service needs... Pre-Construction, During Construction, and Post Construction." -- Don Neff, President
