Construction innovation in America is an endless source of fascination among our team, and the 4th of July has us thinking about America’s iconic construction projects. Most of America’s iconic landmarks were completed using methods of construction that had barely changed in centuries – it blows our mind!
As construction technology advances, it’s hard to imagine a time when every element of massive construction projects was done by hand – blueprints, measuring, leveling, nailing – almost nothing was automated or done by machine until the mid-1900’s. Instructions were given onsite and in person – not via phone, fax or email. The construction workers pictured below would not recognize the modern day construction jobsite.
The FieldLens team wishes everyone a happy, fun and safe 4th of July!
