From the 1920s until present day, the technological evolution of the office building, or more specifically, the office building skyscraper has been eminent. From past to present, the functions of this building have changed dramatically and with this change, a component cost shift has occurred. An investigation of different technologies that have transformed over the years has been performed on three notable skyscrapers: the Empire State Building (1931 completion), the World Trade Center (1971 completion), and One World Trade Center (late 2013 projected completion). All buildings are located in New York City, New York and were constructed at relatively equal intervals throughout time, from each other. A building can be broken down into different elements and for this analysis; five specific components were investigated. They were the podium, also known as the foundation and floors, the load-bearing members of the structure, or frame, the veneer or curtain wall system, the interior finishes of the building and any machinery involved with the buildings functional usage. All three buildings incorporate all five of these components in their design, but there are distinctions as to how the percentages of importance of each changed as the evolution and knowledge of technology progressed throughout time. This study has addressed the different methods each building used to achieve a technological cutting edge of their respective periods of time of construction, within the scope of the five main building components.

No. of bitstreams: 0 Previous issue date: 2016-02-15 / Telecommuting or working in home office is a work of formatting existing in various parts of the world. Such a format allows the employees to do its function remotely. Its use seek the closeness and support of companies or institutions in remote locations. Its use has positive aspects when it comes to resources the institution economy, flexibility and autonomy for employees, increased productivity and greater presence and company representation in remote areas of the matrices. However formatting also involves negative aspects such as the individual's sense of isolation, destance of leadership, little differentiation between work and family environment and professional visibility of difficulty within the organization. For young people who start their careers, especially trainees, teleworking shown a possibility of integration in a multinational, it gives them the possibility of entering into an organization that has no office in their states, to the company the advantage of get hand of young and skilled labor in regions that it has no presence. However some aspects of development and learning, effects of flexibility and autonomy in personal life and possibility intern career ascension are raised. This research seeks to answer the following question: What is the perception of the trainees about the internship program teleworking a multinational hygiene and cleanliness? The overall objective is to analyze the perception of a group of trainees about the internship program teleworking. To this end they were made interviews with 12 multinational trainees in six different Brazilian states that work with intership and teleworking. For the treatment of data was performed a content analysis of the interviews, categorizing the most relevant aspects in eight categories of analysis, five of them aimed to influence the intership with telework in personal life and three facing the intership and career. As a result it is perceived the great advantage that provides the flexibility to help trainees to reconcile with the studies, but the relationship with time is dubious because the difficulty of managing it generates extra work to young people. There is a general perception that telecommuting has important professional skills such as proactivity and prioritization of tasks; at the same time it brings to the individual a sense of isolation, concern for their visibility and the possibility of growth in the company. In conclusion it appears that the roles of leaders and company become crucial in this process, since there is no definition of responsibilities of the parties involved. This research proposes a telecommuting role model for organizations. Keywords: Telecommuting. Home-office. Intern, Trainee. / O teletrabalho ou trabalho em home-office é uma formatação de trabalho já existente em diversas partes do mundo. Tal formatação permite ao colaborador exercer sua função de forma remota. Sua utilização busca a proximidade e apoio das empresas ou instituições em localidades longínquas. Seu uso traz aspectos positivos no que tange a economia de recursos à instituição, flexibilidade e autonomia para o colaborador, aumento de produtividade e maior presença e representação da empresa em regiões distantes das matrizes. Contudo sua formatação também envolve aspectos negativos como a sensação de isolamento do indivíduo, distanciamento das lideranças, pouca diferenciação entre trabalho e ambiente familiar e dificuldade de visibilidade do profissional dentro da organização. Para jovens que iniciam a carreira, em especial os estagiários, o teletrabalho se mostra uma possibilidade de inserção em uma multinacional, pois dá-lhes a possibilidade de ingresso em uma organização que não possui escritório em seus estados, para a empresa a vantagem de obter mão de obra jovem e qualificada em regiões que ela não possui presença. Contudo alguns aspectos relativos ao desenvolvimento e aprendizagem, efeitos da flexibilidade e autonomia na vida pessoal e possibilidade de ascensão de carreira do estagiário são levantados. Essa pesquisa busca responder a seguinte pergunta: Qual a percepção dos estagiários acerca do programa de estágio em regime de teletrabalho de uma multinacional de higiene e limpeza? O objetivo geral é analisar a percepção de um grupo de estagiários acerca do programa de estágio em regime de teletrabalho. Para tal foram feitas entrevistas com 12 estagiários de multinacional em seis diferentes estados brasileiros que atuam com estágio e teletrabalho. Para o tratamento de dados foi realizada uma análise de conteúdo das entrevistas, categorizando os aspectos mais relevantes em oito categorias de análise, cinco delas voltadas a influência do estágio com teletrabalho na vida pessoal e outras três voltadas para o estágio e a carreira. Como resultado é percebida a grande vantagem que a flexibilidade proporciona ao ajudar os estagiários com a conciliação com os estudos, contudo a relação com o tempo é dúbia, pois a dificuldade de gerenciá-lo gera sobrecarga de trabalho aos jovens. Há uma percepção geral de que o teletrabalho acarreta importantes competências profissionais, como proatividade e priorização de tarefas; ao mesmo tempo ele traz ao indivíduo uma sensação de isolamento, preocupação com a sua visibilidade e possibilidade de crescimento na companhia. Como conclusão verifica-se que os papeis das lideranças e da empresa tornam-se fundamentais nesse processo, já que não há uma definição de responsabilidades das partes envolvidas. Desta forma esta pesquisa propõe um modelo de atuação de teletrabalho para as organizações. Palavras-chave: Teletrabalho. Home-office. Estágio. Estagiário.

A field study was performed using 51 participants that were randomly selected from several Brazos Valley, Texas businesses to participate in an 8-hour assessment of office seating habits that influence seating design and testing. A control group was established as those with BMI’s < 35 and an obese group was established as those with BMI’s >35. Data was collected through written survey and through data logging of seat and back contact pressure (average and peak), surface area, center of gravity and duration of contact by recording 8 metrics, once per second using the X-sensor pressure mapping device and software. Additionally, 50 days of caster roll distance was recorded for the participants using a caster mounted digital encoder. It was determined that at alpha = 0.05, using the Student’s T-test, a significant difference did exist between the groups in mean seat time per shift (p<.001) back contacts per shift (p<.002), seat contacts per shift (p<.01) and caster distance rolled per shift (p<.001). During a subsequent lab study, data were collected during 3 cycles of ingress, egress on the armrest use, along with anthropometry and critical chair testing parameters. Center of Gravity was measured from a fixed backrest (front to rear) for 16 participants. 4 male and 4 female obese with BMI greater than 35 and 4 male and 4 female with BMI less than 30 were compared. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a significant difference existed between anthropometric factors for normal and obese participants that would affect how a chair should be loaded during testing. The null hypothesis that normal means and obese means for each measure were equal was rejected by using independent samples T-test at alpha = 0.05 with p<.001 significance reported for all measures. These data suggest a need for a fresh look at several parameters used in the normal test standards as well as a need for a tougher test method for seating designed for the obese worker.
