Durham, N.C., Aug. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DURHAM, N.C. — August 1, 2017 — Prescient, a fully integrated, proprietary and patented design, engineering, manufacturing and installation solution for the construction industry, today announced they have been selected by JE Dunn for work on a mixed-use, four-building student housing project on the University of Oklahoma’s campus in Norman, Oklahoma. OU Cross Village is a $194 million student housing project that will consist of four four-story residential hall buildings totaling nearly 500,000 square feet, including more than 250,000 square feet of Prescient’s structural steel solution. The four buildings will feature 413 residential units and house 1,231 students as well as 40,000 square feet of integrated dining, fitness and entertainment space. The project, contracted by JE Dunn, is being developed by Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions and development partner Provident Resources Group. The interiors are being designed by Clark Nexsen and the exteriors are being designed by Studio Architecture. “With any student housing project, time is of the essence,” said Gordon Lansford, JE Dunn CEO. “We would not be able to complete a project of this magnitude in time for the new school year’s move-in deadline without a proven, field-tested system that provides time- and cost-saving advantages like the innovative Prescient system.” Each of the project’s buildings will consist of one story of concrete podium structure and three stories of Prescient structure. The project also includes a 1,000-space parking deck. “Student housing projects carry costly penalties for developers and general contractors if a move-in deadline corresponding to the commencement of the school year is not met,” said Magued Eldaief, Prescient CEO. “Consequently, fast and timely construction is critical. Our state-of-the-art Digital Thread and custom manufacturing system are able to provide cost-effective, precision-manufactured, quality student structures across the country in a fraction of the time of traditional construction methods.” Prescient structures incorporate a combination of steel posts, trusses and panels that are custom-manufactured using Prescient’s proprietary design software. The system is a superior option for multi-unit projects like residence halls because it is non-combustible, minimizes disruption in the areas surrounding the construction zone and reduces the need for rework, helping owners reduce both timelines and budgets. “This project is Prescient’s eighth student housing endeavor and the first in Oklahoma,” said  Satyen Patel, executive chairman of Prescient. “Our solution resonates with the needs of the student housing sector. It is a better way to plan, design and build”. Prescient’s other student housing projects include The Corner at West Campus in Austin, Texas; Kansas University Central District Residence Hall and Kansas University Central District Apartments in Lawrence, Kansas; Uncommon Tampa on the University of South Florida's campus in Tampa Bay, Florida; Uncommon Fort Collins on Colorado State University’s campus in Fort Collins, Colorado; and Colorado Christian University Residence Hall in Lakewood, Colorado.

Established in 2012, Prescient is aiming for nothing less than a revolution in the way buildings take shape through new levels of cost efficiency, environmental sustainability and quality of outcome for all participants. Prescient’s platform ensures buildings perform better, cost less and take less time to build by employing a Digital Thread for leading-edge integrated manufacturing. Digital Thread. The foundation for Prescient’s revolution is a standardized light gauge framing system that utilizes proprietary software applications which create a design and construction platform. Our thread connects projects from the initial architectural design through the finished building. The Prescient Digital Thread is based on a model-centric design and planning platform that liberates project stakeholders to plan better and execute better. As a result, a project is no longer a series of isolated steps with familiar breakdowns and gaps. Instead, it becomes an orderly progression through a repeatable flow, connecting developer, designers, suppliers and contractors at every step. This seamless approach means higher productivity, higher quality, fewer last-minute conflicts on site, less waste, shorter schedules and a better ROI. Integrated Manufacturing. Prescient uses precision manufacturing technology including robotics, laser cutting systems and state-of-the-art numerically controlled flexible manufacturing systems to deliver buildings with very tight tolerances, comparable to the automotive industry. Prescient’s Digital Thread integrates planning and design with manufacturing and installation. We are Prescient. And we’re rebuilding construction from the ground up.

A method and device is described for correcting PET images for the attenuation of effects of the tissues and periodic movements of the patient. The device provides gamma-rays for image registration along with the CT scan. The gamma-rays are detected by the same detectors that form the emission PET scan. The device for generating the gamma-rays is a rod that contains an array of detectors, and a radioactive source that emits two rays in coincidence with each other. One of these rays is a gamma ray, and the other can be a beta ray, an alpha ray, or a low energy x-ray. The position of the rod, which is moveable within the ring of the PET scanner, is monitored so that its position can be coordinated with the signals generated from the ring detectors.
