  • A "Rush Construction" option becomes available for all Engineering projects that are not instantaneous. Using it cuts the construction time in half, but doubles the Credit, Elerium, and Alloy costs.
  • The usefulness of Advanced Construction is somewhat questionable as by the time it is acquired, there typically will be few if any facilities left to build. However, it can be good if manufacturing Firestorms quickly is a priority.
