LuminOre Coatings are a Safe Bet for Wynn Las Vegas

In its grand opening, the new Wynn Las Vegas unveiled architectural artistry, elegance and some spectacular effects made possible by LuminOre Inc., specialists in composite metals.

Vista, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- This week’s grand opening of the new $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas -- built by Steve Wynn -- has completely energized Las Vegas, and the new mega-resort’s architectural artistry and elegant sophistication has literally been the talk of the town. Creating an environment that insiders say ‘must be experienced to be understood,’ the Wynn Resorts chairman has incorporated some spectacular effects with help from LuminOre Inc. of Vista, Calif., specialists in composite metal.

”We're very excited to be a part of the Wynn Las Vegas experience,” says Tom Valente, founder and president of LuminOre Inc. “Mr. Wynn has produced some of the world’s most famous hotel-casinos ever built, including the Mirage, Treasure Island and The Bellagio, and his designers very often require unique applications in metals and metal alloys to achieve a desired look or environment. LuminOre’s patented metalizing process has revolutionized the way the world works with metal, and our clients are able to deliver a custom metal finish efficiently and cost effectively on practically any surface.”

In addition to its use by billion-dollar resorts such as the Wynn Las Vegas and The Bellagio, motion picture set designers and special effect companies, LuminOre’s patented, sprayable metal finishes offer extensive industrial and marine applications. LuminOre’s composite metals spray onto virtually any surface using conventional spray equipment, and are available in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, nickel-silver, stainless steel, X-metal and Z3. The end result is a protective coating that withstands the harshest of environments, is non-conductive of electricity and anti-corrosive.

”LuminOre’s patented cold-sprayable process allows a thin layer of metal to be applied over any substrate, in virtually any configuration or design,” explains Terry Gould, president of LuminOre Industrial & Marine Coatings Inc., a licensee of LuminOre which specializes in marine and industrial applications. “LuminOre looks, feels and acts like hot-cast metal, yet no heat is needed. From foam to fiberglass or plaster to paper, the LuminOre process adheres to most any surface other than skin and water. Once cured, the product has many of the characteristics of a cast metal, including texture, luster and heat conductivity.”

According to Gould, LuminOre’s benefits goes far beyond Las Vegas and the world of sophisticated design elements. Testing over the past several years, he explains, has shown LuminOre to be an excellent deterrent to marine organisms attaching themselves to hulls or structures beneath the water line.

“In the Great Lakes where there is a very large Zebra Mussel problem,” says Gould, “we’ve had test plates in the water protected by LuminOre material. After five years, not a single footprint of Zebra attachment has been recorded.”

The LuminOre process has made incredible contributions in a variety of diverse industries, and Valente concludes that many of its uses are still being discovered. From metal artistry in Vegas to fine furniture finishes to protective coatings in harsh marine environments, the innovative breakthrough of LuminOre’s cold-metalizing process is actually changing the way architects, designers and industrial engineers approach problem-solving with metals.

Headquartered in Vista, Calif., LuminOre® Inc. is a specialist in composite metal finishes. LuminOre’s patented, cold-metalizing process seamlessly applies to almost any surface, giving the look of solid metal casting without the weight and expense. In addition to highly specialized effects in furniture, design, construction and architecture, the extremely versatile LuminOre applications provide long-term protection for chemical tanks, potable water storage, industrial facilities and in harsh marine environments.

To Really Get in Shape, Do it on a Rubber Floor

The ideal floor for many sports activities is Toughsport Rubber Flooring from American Micro Industries, Inc. The sound and shock absorbing properties of this recycled rubber floor make it ideal for your home gym or the fitness center at “the Club”, the children’s playroom or a childcare center. Rubber flooring absorbs impact, thus reducing stress on the knees and other joints during aerobics. It quiets the sound of exercise equipment such as treadmills, stairmasters, and rowing machines and also reduces impact noise from clanging weights and footfall.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- To really get in shape you need the right shoes, the right clothes, and the right exercise equipment. A major but often overlooked element is the floor, and rubber is now the state-of-the-art flooring material for fitness and sports activities. Just as science and technology have greatly improved the effectiveness of our exercise routines by improving what we wear and the equipment we use, the floor under our feet has been improved, too. A hard-surfaced tile floor over concrete can actually be detrimental for many sports and fitness activities such as aerobics, gymnastics, yoga, or weight training. Harsh impact results in excessive stress on joints during aerobic activities, while the operational noise of exercise equipment can be distracting and take away from your total fitness experience.

Environmental Groups Support Beachwalk Condominiums Building Boardwalk to the Bay

Tampa Bay Watch and other environmental groups give nod to construction of community boardwalk over mangrove wetlands to the bay.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- Beachwalk, the condominium community that recently opened in Tampa, has received approval from the Environmental Protection Commission to begin construction on a boardwalk across scenic wetlands out to Old Tampa Bay.

Located adjacent to Rocky Point and Dana Shores, Beachwalk overlooks miles of open bay, pristine wetlands and a nature preserve. Part of the community’s appeal will be a network of boardwalks strategically placed across the wetlands culminating in a gazebo providing seating and shade overlooking the bay.

Because these boardwalks will span across protected plant and animal habitats, Beachwalk enlisted guidance and support from both Tampa Bay Watch, a not-for-profit steward of the Bay area waterways, and Tampa Bay Estuary Program, a government agency responsible for protecting Tampa Bay, the largest estuary in the state of Florida.

Peter A. Clark, Executive Director of Tampa Bay Watch, says, “The concept of enhancing environmental awareness as a part of Beachwalk’s condominium project is commendable. I am particularly pleased that the boardwalk is routed to avoid impacting mangroves, while eliminating invasive species in the process.” Clark also notes that “this is an example of how a well-planned addition can improve the environment while also enhancing enjoyment of the area for residents and friends.”

The almost one half-mile long boardwalk, constructed of pressure-treated lumber, will stand approximately six feet above ground. At regular intervals educational signage will be placed along the boardwalk to enlighten visitors about delicate plants and animals in the Tampa Bay ecosystem and other sensitive conservation issues. Two rest areas with benches will also be provided.

“We know that the people choosing to buy at Beachwalk not only appreciate our exceptional location on the bay, they also care about preserving its delicate ecological balance,” says Adam Schlesinger, the developer. “That’s why we are implementing a club for owners who want to actively participate in cleanup, wildlife protection and related environmental activities.

We call it Beachwalk’s B.E.S.T., an acronym for Beachwalk’s Environmental Stewardship Team.”

In addition to the scenic boardwalks, an array of other features will add to the quality of life at Beachwalk. These include a Clubhouse that features a community wine cellar, a virtual golf simulator and a rock-climbing wall. Designed for entertaining and activity, the clubhouse also offers residents a complete fitness center, Cyber Café with Wi-Fi high-speed internet access, a sun deck featuring a swimming pool with custom waterfall, a club room with a catering kitchen and a casual juice bar.

The community also boasts a boat dock, 24-hour attended entry gate with remote control access, concierge services and the convenience of a pet walk area.

Beachwalk is located in the heart of the Tampa Bay area just minutes from Clearwater and major business centers, top-flight shopping, The International Mall, fine restaurants, Raymond James Stadium and Tampa International Airport.

Within Beachwalk’s relaxed village setting are cottage-style one and two-bedroom residences. The spacious, designer-appointed floor plans feature private entries, oversized decks, custom crown moldings, ceramic tiled floors, plush carpeted bedrooms, energy-efficient appliances, private garages and more.

Beachwalk’s three fully furnished models are created by award-winning interior designer Leslie Schlesinger. Her highly praised portfolio of work includes Audubon Condominium at Feather Sound as well as feature stories in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Haute Décor and Traditional Home magazines.

“We’re 70% sold out,” says Don Egnor, sales director at Beachwalk. “And for good reason. We offer spectacular views, great floor plans, terrific value and amenities rarely found, even in communities selling at twice the price. Once people see it, they are eager to call Beachwalk home.”

Ceebraid-Signal Corporation, well known for its condominium conversions and other residential properties throughout the eastern United States, purchased Beachwalk, formerly known as Bayside Village, in February 2004. The community is undergoing a major transformation, from site renewal to redevelopment of the units, as well as, common areas and landscaping. Phase One residents will be able to move in to Beachwalk as early as Spring 2005.

Other Ceebraid-Signal Corporation projects include Eden and Bacara condominiums located in Boca Raton, FL; Il Lugano, an exclusive lakefront condominium, and The Brazilian Court, an historic boutique condominium hotel, both in Palm Beach, FL; Audubon Condominium on the water in Feather Sound; Gramercy Mews and Chelsea Lofts in New York City, NY; and Highgrove, the cornerstone of high-end condominiums in Stamford, CT.

The exclusive sales and marketing agent for Beachwalk is Coldwell Banker, The Condo Store, which specializes in the sales and marketing of luxury condominium developments. For more information, call 404 705-1582 or visit www.condostore.com.

Beachwalk’s condominium residences are priced from the $150,000s for one bedroom units and from the $190,000s for two-bedroom units. Floor plans range up to 1,298 square feet.

The Sales Center is located at 5831-01 Memorial Highway in Tampa, FL and is open from 10 am to 6 pm weekdays, 10 am. to 5 pm. on Saturday and from 12 Noon to 5 pm on Sunday. Call 813 884-7755 or visit www.beachwalkcondos.net for more information.

A-Class Environment Rating for Window Profile Used In Construction

The manufacture of pultruded profiles, used in the construction of Octaveward's Samson windows, has exceptionally low environmental impact. This was the conclusion of the Building Research Establishment in examining composite building components and means these profiles have been given a class leading "A" rating.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- The manufacture of pultruded profiles, used in the construction of Octaveward's Samson windows, has exceptionally low environmental impact. This was the conclusion of the Building Research Establishment in examining composite building components and means these profiles have been given a class leading "A" rating. The performance and durability of building components is essential to having a sustainable future, but just as important is the environmental impact of manufacture.

The BRE study examined the materials and processes used in the manufacture of various composite materials. The impact that these had on climate change, release of toxic agents to the environment, ozone depletion, fossil fuel depletion and other environmental changes was assessed and scored on a weighted scale. This objective grading resulted in an aggregate "A" rating for pultruded profile, the lowest class of environmental impact.

Commenting on the finding, Octaveward director Trevor Williams, explained, "Even before the BRE study we were convinced that due to its strength, durability and low maintenance the Samson window was an environmentally friendly choice. What other window system has a guaranteed life of 35 five years, a projected life of 60 and so little maintenance requirement? The BRE study now tells us that the environmental impact of this product starts low - a significant achievement and major contributor to sustainability."

Samson windows can be fabricated in traditional or modern styles and offer a range of long life colour finishes, guaranteed for 15 years. The frame meets the latest Building Standards requirement for thermal efficiency with a maximum U value of 2W/m²K while special glazing options can reduce heat loss even more.

Stop Construction Site Theft and Vandalism

L & R Logistics has an answer to construction site theft and vandalism
(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- L & R Logistics the leader in construction site security has released its second generation of the SiteGuard Early Warning Perimeter Monitoring System. We have come a long way from the traditional image of the drowsy night watchman “protecting” his watch station. This simple yet highly versatile device can protect a job site by detecting an intruder and reporting that intrusion to whomever you chose.

The intrusion can be reported in a clandestine manner by sending a text message to a cell phone or voice message. Or, if you prefer, can set off sirens, turn on lights, and/or trigger any device to perform a task of notification. In this age of electronics, anything that can be triggered to produce an output can be employed. Here’s another nice feature….the input is as versatile as the output! Any device that produces an input i.e. electronic trip beams, motion detectors, heat sensors, smoke detectors, sound (glass breaking) sensors…can interface with the SiteGuard device.

The SiteGuard Early Warning Perimeter Monitoring System is a fully self contained unit. L & R Logistics has integrated a Cellular Data Radio within the module resulting in a simple, smaller and less expensive alternative. This small unit contains Auto Arming / Disarming, Event Storage, Relay Output (for lights and sirens) and Cellular Data Technology in one small, compact and inexpensive model. The device is available with many Battery / Power Supply and Sensor options. This technology can be remotely deployed and setup in minutes to protect your assets. Since the system is portable it is also easy to move and reconfigure as the site topography changes. And since it is compact, it will fit almost anywhere.

One problem that almost all builders and contractors face is cash flow. SiteGuard can be leased or a lease/purchase can be arranged. Compared to the cost of getting robbed, this system is downright cheap!

SiteGuard has been on the job since 2004 but in that time has produced over 231 arrests nationwide. This is not to mention the hundreds of undocumented incidents where intruders were frightened away or escorted off the site.

So, don’t wait until your site is next…

Fenwal's Applications Lab Expands Into New Markets: Doubles OEM Customer Appliances Served in 2004

A higher percentage of manufacturers in emerging markets are expressing the need for application development support.

Ashland, MA (PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- Fenwal Controls, Inc., a leading manufacturer of standard and customized automatic gas ignition and temperature controls for commercial and industrial OEM customers, has expanded the capabilities of its Applications Lab.

“OEMs in commercial cooking, hydronics, HVAC, pool/spa and RV have fast-track new product development timelines and are using Fenwal to optimize their designs and maximize performance and reliability. In 2004 the number of customer appliances under evaluation in Fenwal’s applications lab doubled over the previous year, as a higher percentage of manufacturers in emerging markets expressed the need for application development support.

“Beyond commercial and industrial, we’re seeing more projects in residential and municipal markets for automatic ignition of specialty luxury gas appliances,” says Jerry Harting, Director of Sales and Marketing, Fenwal Controls. Projects currently under evaluation include customers’ gas fireplaces as well as gas lanterns, which have found renewed popularity.

First Flush of Success as New Primary School Toilets Launched

Portaloo has launched a new Portaloo Junior Washroom to provide portable primary school toilet facilities in response to demand.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- The days of dark, dank toilets in schools will soon be long gone, thanks to the launch of the new Portaloo Junior washroom portable school toilets.

The toilet unit, which has been specifically designed for use by Key Stages 1 and 2 primary school children, has been developed by the UK’s leading supplier of http://www.portaloo.co.uk[portable toilet] facilities in response to customer demand.

John Smith, Portaloo Business Manager, said: “Recently we have had more and more customers in the education sector requesting portable toilet facilities that are designed specifically for use by primary school-age children. In the past we have met this demand by modifying our existing products, but we wanted to provide a solution that was especially designed for this requirement.

“Through our work with customers we identified all the features needed to ensure Portaloo Junior washrooms provide the highest quality school toiletes for primary school children across the country.”

The 7.48m x 3.27m toilet block can accommodate up to 80 pupils. It provides separate boys and girls toilets or can be used as a single sex block.

Designed in conjunction with The Education (School Premises) Regulations 1999, which includes guidelines on ‘Washrooms for Pupils’, the children’s toilet unit has an all-steel construction, providing maximum durability, comfort and easy maintenance.

John continued: “As well as meeting the requirements set out in the Education (School Premises) Regulations, we have also ensured that the new toilet units incorporate safety features to protect the young children using them.

“For example, we have included finger guards on the entrance door and internal doors so that fingers can’t get trapped, possibly causing nasty injuries.

“We have also used bright, contrasting colours for all the internal furnishings, which helps visually impaired people as well as providing a nice, vibrant environment for young children.”

Portaloo Junior can be used as a stand-alone toilet building, or can be easily linked to an existing building or Portakabin products*.

It also features a concealed central storage cupboard, which houses all the pipework and cisterns for the toilets. This reduces the risk of accidental damage or vandalism and also provides ease of maintenance for any plumbing work that needs to be carried out.

Other features include:
- Low-level urinals, pedestals and recessed washbasins suitable for pupils at Key Stages 1 and
- A thermostatically-controlled water supply, which ensures consistent water temperature and prevents scalding.
- A high capacity 50-litre storage tank, providing a plentiful supply of hot water.
- High-level heaters for maximum comfort and child safety.
- Scalloped toilet cubicle doors, which allow teacher supervision whilst maintaining privacy.
- Vanity units with recessed washbasins enhance the appearance, whilst also concealing plumbing and therefore minimising the risk of damage.
- Child-height mirrors over the washbasins.

John concluded: “The new Portaloo Junior product is an ideal solution for schools in a whole range of circumstances, such as periods of refurbishment or to accommodate an increase in pupil numbers.

“They provide smart, comfortable primary school toilets, which can be sited anywhere they are required on the school grounds. The feedback we have had from customers so far has been very positive and we are looking forward to working with more schools across the country to help them provide quality washroom facilities for their pupils at all times.”

* http://www.portaloo.co.uk[Portaloo] is a subsidiary company of Portakabin.

Getting to Grips with Building Access in the Leisure Sector

On 1 October 2004, the third and final part of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) came into force. This legislation has had a huge influence on the way services, such as leisure facilities, are provided in relation to people with disabilities and apply to both existing and new buildings.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- On 1 October 2004, the third and final part of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) came into force. This legislation has had a huge influence on the way services, such as leisure facilities, are provided in relation to people with disabilities and apply to both existing and new building access.

With an annual spending power of £50 billion, making sure that people with disabilities can fully access your buildings makes sound financial sense.

However, not all leisure service providers seem to appreciate this. Many companies still haven’t fully got to grips with the implications of the new regulations and the steps they need to take to ensure that their buildings are fully accessible for everyone, regardless of ability, both internally as well as externally.

The Disability Rights Commission works with disabled people, employers and service providers to achieve its vision of “a society where all disabled people can participate fully as equal citizens.” It was established in April 2000 by an Act of Parliament to stop discrimination and promote equality of opportunity for disabled people.

Its role includes ensuring that all organisations take the required steps to meet the new regulations set out in the DDA by closely monitoring the provision that is made available, and encouraging people with disabilities to exercise their rights by highlighting any instances where access is inadequate.

To help organisations in the leisure sector meet these requirements, http://www.portaloo.co.uk[Portaloo], a Portakabin subsidiary, has helped lead the modular building industry, and specifically the portable restroom sector, in interpreting and devising workable solutions to help meet the regulations.

John Smith, Portaloo Business Manager, said: “A popular misconception is that Part III of the Disability Discrimination Act covers only wheelchair access to premises. This isn’t the case, as it covers all forms of access to goods and services, including provision of access for the partially sighted and people with physical disabilities.

“Unlike the employment provisions of Part II of the DDA, there are no exemptions for service providers on the basis of their size. All types of businesses are now legally required to take positive steps to make all goods and services accessible to disabled people. Portaloo can provide building solutions that can help companies in the leisure sector provide the vital amenities that will help them to achieve this.”

Jake Fowler, Head of Building Control and Property Information at York City Council, who worked with Portakabin to devise workable access solutions, added: “The scope of this legislation is huge and we’ve had to standardise on many features. For example, doors should be wide enough to take a wheelchair, which is common sense really, but there have been no regulations previously.

“Unfortunately I think a lot of people will get caught out. Portakabin is the exception rather than the rule. We haven’t had many approaches from companies about what they need to be doing. They seem to have buried their heads in the sand.”

Kevan Halliday-Brown, Regional Manager of the Federation of Disability Sports Organisations (FDSO), supports this sentiment. He said: “Our mission is to encourage people with disabilities to get involved in sport and leisure activities so that they can explore their talents and abilities. We have an extensive programme of events that runs throughout the year, and while we have a good network of leisure facility providers that host the events for us, we are always looking to increase this.

“Access is obviously a key criteria for us when looking at the suitability of a particular venue, and we still regularly come across buildings that don’t provide adequate access despite the introduction of the final part of the DDA.”

Updating facilities to accommodate the regulations often requires refurbishment work to be done. However, the DDA requirements state that ease of access for all must be provided at all times, even during periods of refurbishment.

To help achieve this, Portaloo can provide disabled persons toilet and shower units, which allow organisations to provide high quality amenities for disabled people where they might not have previously existed. Typical features of the 9m² toilet unit include a single pedestal, allowing plenty of room for wheelchair manoeuvring, grab handles around the hand basin and pedestal, as well as a raised toilet seat for easy transfer from wheelchairs, and a low-level door threshold for easy access.

As a subsidiary of Portakabin, Portaloo is also able to provide entry ramps to ensure that all of an organisation’s buildings meet the regulations. Portakabin Access is one of the few organisations in Europe that provides ramps that meet all the requirements of the DDA on a short or long-term basis. The ramps are delivered, installed and removed by a dedicated team of access experts, which means the process is totally hassle-free for the customer.

John concluded: “We always strive to help our customers in every way possible. Ease of access for everyone is an important subject and I hope that all organisations across the country that aren’t meeting the needs of disabled people are doing everything they can to ensure they are very soon. If they don’t they will certainly find themselves under pressure to do so in the very near future.”

Any company requiring advice and guidance on providing access for people with disabilities can contact the Disability Rights Commission for further information or visit http://www.drc-gb.org.

For further information on the products and services available from Portaloo contact 0845 200 5555 or visit http://www.portaloo.co.uk.

Portaloo, the UK's Leading Supplier of Portable Toilets, is on the Move

Portaloo, the UK’s leading supplier of portable restroom facilities, is on the move to bigger and better premises, doubling its number of employees on the way.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- Portaloo, the UK’s leading supplier of http://www.portaloo.co.uk[portable toilet] facilities, is on the move to bigger and better premises, doubling its number of employees on the way.

The move for the company’s Midlands Region Hire Centre is thanks to its huge success in providing quality toilet and shower blocks to organisations in a range of sectors across the UK.

The two-acre purpose-built site at Foundry Lane in Smethwick, West Midlands will enable the company to keep a greater quantity of buildings on site, allowing customers to see first-hand the growing number of Portaloo products available, and further improve the speed in which they can be delivered to customers.

Ben Coupar, Midlands Region Hire Manager for Portaloo, said: “We’ve always provided an extremely high quality, speedy service to our customers, but moving to bigger premises will allow us to respond to requests even more quickly through an expanded team and having a greater number of units on site.

“The business has grown by over 65% during the last couple of years and we have seen more and more organisations in an increasing variety of sectors recognising the benefits of providing the highest quality rest facilities at all times.”

http://www.portaloo.co.uk[Portaloo], a subsidiary of Portakabin, provides a range of quality restroom facilities, whether it be toilets, washrooms or showers, or a combination of all three.

Disabled Access to Buildings Remains a Problem in Many Areas of the UK

Many of Britain’s 10 million disabled people cannot access education, employment, social or leisure facilities because they are physically barred from participation. A couple of steps or a heavy door are enough to prevent someone in a wheelchair from gaining access.

(PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- Many of Britain’s 10 million disabled people cannot access education, employment, social or leisure facilities because they are physically barred from participation. A couple of steps or a heavy door are enough to prevent someone in a wheelchair from gaining access.

In the 21st century we all agree that it isn’t acceptable to exclude people because they happen to be disabled. Yet it continues to happen.

Real life discrimination
The following examples, taken from the Disability Rights Commission website, highlight the shocking difficulties faced by some disabled people when trying to carry out every day tasks able bodied people take for granted.

· A wheelchair user who paid more than £400 a year for membership of a well-known gym found out too late that two-thirds of the club is out of bounds to wheelchair users.
· A wheelchair user and self-confessed book lover is unable to get to the upper floors of her favourite bookshop to browse among the book sections because the shop has no lift.
· A woman who uses a wheelchair can't get into a single shop in her home town because they all have steps. She has to carry a portable ramp in the back of her wheelchair. She also can't get into her bank or use the cash machine, which isn't low enough. Her husband has to do her banking for her.

New regulations
The introduction of the most recent phase of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), introduced in October 2004, is aimed at combating problems such as these. It states that all those who provide services to the public must ensure that their services are fully accessible to people with disabilities. This may mean removing or altering physical barriers such as steps and applies equally to both new and existing buildings.

This, together with the removal of the exemption from the DDA for small businesses, coupled with the recent changes to Part M of the building regulations, means that providing sufficient access to buildings is now more important than ever and the new laws are equally important for interim building solutions as they are for permanent buildings.

Enter the Portakabin Access team
With its team of qualified experts, the Portakabin Access department is well placed to help customers understand the regulations and offer advice and solutions on all aspects of access.

Portakabin Access Business Development Manager, Haz Basarab-King, explains: “In essence the changes in the law means that service providers now need to ensure that their http://www.portakabin.co.uk/productsandservices/services/portaloo/bproductsandservices/[buildings are accessible] to everybody. The changes to Part M stipulate that everyone should be able to gain access to all buildings and facilities, from people with pushchairs to the visually impaired, and the introduction of the latest part of the DDA means that there should be no obstruction for disabled people to access a building.

“However, there is no doubt that these new laws can be confusing and knowing exactly what you do and don’t need to adhere to can be difficult to understand.

“At Portakabin we have a team of access experts who have all had access auditing training. This means that we can offer customers thorough advice on exactly what they do and don’t need to do to comply with the regulations. Not only can we provide advice on the Portakabin products, which can be tailored to suit any customer needs, but we can also advise on aspects of access internally.”

The training the team undertook was carried out by a company that specialises in access audit training and is affiliated to the CAE, (Centre for Accessible Environments), an advisory body to the Government.

The training course has provided the team with an increased awareness and working knowledge of issues relating to all aspects of access to buildings, which in turn provides Portakabin customers with complete peace of mind.

What the FDSO thinks
Kevan Halliday-Brown, Regional Manager of the Federation of Disability Sports Organisations (FDSO), said: “Situations such as the one highlighted above and indeed those real life scenarios at the beginning of this article, illustrate that there is still a long way to go before everyone appreciates the difficulties faced by disabled people when it comes to access.

“In the leisure industry it is equally important for disabled people to be able to gain access to facilities, from the swimming pool to the showers. Legislation such as the DDA is helping though and it’s prompting service providers to think. It’s estimated that disabled people have an annual spending power of £50 billion in all sectors; money that business and venue owners may be missing out on if disabled people cannot access their premises and facilities.”

And finally…
Since October 2004 anyone not complying with the regulations may be faced with legal action. For all public access buildings, regardless of size, failure to make ‘reasonable provision‘ may lead to legal action under the DDA.

Whilst the Federation of Small Businesses says that 42% of its 185,000 members have done nothing to comply with the Act, the message that they need to is definitely getting through as the Portakabin Access team has seen its orders double year on year.

Haz concludes: “Portakabin fully supports the aims of the Act and changes to Part M. It’s absolutely right that everyone should be able to enjoy the same level of access to work and leisure opportunities.”

Seattle, WA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 28, 2022 -- eBid Systems today announced the Spring ’05 release of eBid eXchange, highlighting two new Editions of the service designed specifically for the construction industry. This expands the Company’s presence serving the utilities, transportation, manufacturing, and public sectors.


eBid eXchange is an online procurement software system providing powerful capabilities for subcontractor database management and the sourcing of goods and services. With eBid eXchange, small- and medium-sized businesses can now afford powerful and configurable procurement tools in a private and secure environment.

The Bid Solicitation Edition provides an online, searchable subcontractor database, bid solicitation by e-mail and fax, and bid response tracking. Additionally, the Bid Solicitation Edition offers a private subcontractor portal for each client to post information about their projects and commonly used forms that can be downloaded. At $995 per year (up to 5 users) the Bid Solicitation Edition appeals to contractors looking to move up from limited, desktop faxing systems.

The Bid Room Edition is a full-feature, private online plan room that provides capabilities for posting plans and specifications, online document viewing and takeoff, Request for Information (RFI) management, online bid response, and self-service subcontractor registration. Contractors using the Bid Room Edition achieve even greater savings with a comprehensive, electronic communications platform. The Bid Room Edition is available at $39 per user per month.

Martin Hogger, of Seattle general contractor MRJ Constructors, remarked, eBid eXchange “will be useful for sending bid requests/addendums, avoiding the time consuming efforts of entering new subs/suppliers and updating, and having subs/suppliers download our forms and project documents.”

Keith Jones, eBid President and Founder, explained, “Our new Editions of eBid eXchange serve the 99% of contractors who know they could work more efficiently and cost-effectively over manual methods of communication. Those in the construction industry definitely appreciate the value of good tools.

Glasgow Company Wins Prestigious UK Construction Award

Glasgow scaffolding/access company, Turner Access Ltd., was announced as The Access and Scaffolding Specialist of the Year for Specialists in Construction Awards 2005.

Govan, Scotland (PRWEB) April 28, 2022 – Glasgow Company, Turner Access Ltd., was announced as the winner of the Access and Scaffolding Specialist of the Year, a prestigious Specialists in Construction Award 2005, on April 19.

The company, employing 129 people, is based in Govan and is the major manufacturer of scaffolding and access equipment in Scotland. Gary Gallagher, Managing Director of Turner Access Ltd., said, “We don't beat them at football or rugby anymore but Scotland is top for Scaffolding and Access.”

The company was nominated largely because of their innovative access solution to the problems of strengthening the Tinsley Viaduct, Sheffield, a two-tier bridge with the M1 on the top tier and the A631 running underneath on the bottom tier. Throughout the past two and a half years, Turner Access Ltd. have been responsible for providing what are the two longest single working platforms ever built (now claimed as an official world record), each one measuring 1km long by 35m wide.

At a time when health and safety in the construction industry is under the microscope and with the release of the new Working at Height Regulations on April 6, the Tinsley project has a virtually unblemished safety record. As of March 2005, over two and a half million man-hours had gone into the project, an average of 35,000 hours per week. There have been no serious accidents and it has been over 1.4 million hours since there was a lost time accident.

Turner Access, using Safespan® and PlusEight® system scaffolding, have been integral in the project winning RoSPA awards, a Working Well Together award, and have contributed significantly toward The Specialists in Construction Awards 2005 award won by this project.

Safety has been the primary concern throughout and Turner Access leads the industry with innovative ideas to keep not only the user of the platforms safe but also the scaffolding/access installer. One of Turner Access’ products, PlusGard®, an advanced guardrail, was a finalist in the Quality in Construction Awards 2004. The judges commented, “This one product could make a huge difference to safety on just about every site in the UK”.

The success of the Tinsley Viaduct contract has helped to create jobs in the Glasgow area, and the implementation of new projects using these award-winning systems is anticipated to have a positive impact on future employment.

Lighting Expert Cautions Landscape Lighting Professionals Against Premature Use of LED’s.

Landscape lighting expert, David Beausoleil, issued a public statement today drawing attention to the industry’s latest innovation, Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s). His concern is that landscape lighting professionals will begin replacing industry-standard incandescent and halogen lamps with LED’s before these new lamps have been standardized and proven.

(PRWEB) April 27, 2022 -- Landscape lighting expert, David Beausoleil, issued a public statement today drawing attention to the industry’s latest innovation, Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s). His concern is that landscape lighting professionals will begin replacing industry-standard incandescent and halogen lamps with LED’s before these new lamps have been standardized and proven.

Mr. Beausoleil, an instructor at Rutgers University and founder of Cast Lighting, expresses his concern, “While LED lamps have great potential as an energy efficient, long-lasting light source in outdoor lighting applications, there are many problems with models currently available. The main issues are heat build-up, poor color rendition, undeveloped optics and a lack of quality standards. These new lamps have been rushed to market before all the bugs have been worked out. Landscape lighting professionals that use LED’s are risking their reputations since the lamps may not perform as desired and prematurely burn out.”

LED’s are miniature electronic lamps used for many years as indicator lights in computers and electrical devices. Their small size, long life and energy efficiency make them ideal for these applications. Recent research has broadened their use to include bright light sources in flashlights, street signs and brake lights on cars. Since individual LED’s are relatively dim, they are grouped in bundles to achieve a greater intensity of light. These new higher-output devices have pushed the limits of the technology and have yet to make significant inroads as dependable bright light sources in architectural lighting.

Despite the early stage of development, LED products dominated the recent Light Fair Conference held in New York City. This yearly industry event is the largest forum of lighting manufacturers in the world. LED versions of all commonly used incandescent lamps were found in many booths – most of them from Asian companies. In contrast to these offerings, LED researchers in pre-conference workshops explained in great detail the manufacturing obstacles that have yet to be overcome. Their best-guess estimate for when LED’s would be ready as bright light sources was 2 to 3 years.

Emphasizing the need for caution, Mr Beausoleil stated, “The early years of landscape lighting were plagued by poorly manufactured products. Because of this, lighting systems were failing prematurely and reputations were damaged. It’s taken many years for our industry to mature and for the products to reach a high level of quality. Lamp quality is especially important; my company, Cast Lighting, offers over 30 models of lamps, each of them precisely manufactured to achieve the patterns and intensities essential for the palette of the landscape lighting designer. When LED’s reach this level of sophistication, then we will offer them, too – but that’s a few years down the road.”

About David Beausoleil
David Beausoleil, Founder and President of Cast Lighting, LLC., is widely recognized as a leading authority on Landscape Lighting design and installation. He founded Cast Lighting with the intention of providing the highest quality products and training at prices affordable to the small business owner. Through his courses at Rutgers and hands-on trainings conducted across the country, thousands of landscape professionals, designers and architects have launched landscape lighting businesses.

$20.6 Billion is Spent Annually on Electrical Mechanical Infrastructure in the United States According to New InterUnity Group Research

Each year $20.6 Billion is spent on the electrical mechanical infrastructure that supports Information Technology in the United States according to InterUnity Group research.

(PRWEB) April 27, 2022 -- The Data Center of the Future: What Is Shaping It?, April, 2005


Each year $20.6 Billion is spent on the electrical mechanical infrastructure that supports Information Technology in the United States according to InterUnity Group research.

The 2005 survey of AFCOM members identifies four major challenges facing Data Center Managers. They are:

1. Preventing the obsolescence of electrical mechanical infrastructure,
2. Supporting new computing technologies,
3. Improving data center security and reliability, and
4. Improving internal communication.

Survey respondents indicated that new computing technology is driving electrical mechanical infrastructure upgrades every three years. To prevent obsolescence, major upgrades will be required by 41 percent of respondents within the next 36 months. Almost one half of these require action in the next 12 months.

New equipment purchases without concern for power and cooling requirements keep 59 percent of Data Center Managers awake. Power densities of new servers and switches concern 49 percent of Data Center Managers. Power requirements are increasing 8 percent per year. Over 40 percent of Data Centers are experiencing annual increases of more than 10 percent.

Insufficient cooling capacity is a major problem facing 43 percent of respondents within two years. Cooling requirements are increasing 8 percent per year. However, 39 percent of respondents are experiencing annual increases of more than 10 percent.

One of the new technologies, Blade servers, has been adopted by 56 percent of respondents. Forty-four percent of respondents have not adopted Blade servers due to one or more of the following reasons:

• No perceived benefits,
• No need for additional capacity, and/or
• Cooling concerns.

Utility computing strategies offer great promise, yet 49 percent of respondents will not employ a Utility computing strategy. Twenty-one percent will implement utility computing for the first time in the coming year. A surprising 11 percent have not yet explored Utility computing.

One of two Data Center Managers have major concerns about reliability or security, even though 81 percent of Data Centers are reported to be more reliable and better protected since the 9/11 disaster. Lack of Business continuity/Disaster recovery plans keeps 37 percent of Data Center Managers awake at night. Data Center Security is a major concern for 31 percent.

Lack of involvement in the planning and procurement of new equipment is the universal concern for three of four (73 percent) Data Center Managers. Forty-five percent are concerned about being incapable of supporting business goals within two years. The underlying reasons are:

• Acquisition of new equipment without adequate concern for power or cooling requirements (59 percent),
• Uncertainty about future IT needs (43 percent),
• Insufficient space (37 percent), and
• Data Center consolidation (35 percent).

Conclusion
New computing technologies are shaping The Data Center of the Future. Data Center Managers are being forced to react and upgrade electrical mechanical infrastructures every three years. To create longer lasting infrastructures, Data Center Managers must become proactive. Active involvement in the planning and budgeting for Information Technology is required.

Data Center Managers face major challenges in order to maintain current levels of service. To be successful in the future, they need to develop the skills to handle political and economic issues in addition to the technical requirements.

Sell a Motel at a Online Auction?

The Owners of the Villa South Motel and Restaurant Complex Think So Ira Royster owner of the Villa South Inn and Restaurant (villasouth.com) has put his Sandersville, Georgia landmark up for sale in an unconventional way – on the online auction sites, eBay and Bidup (bidup.org)

(PRWEB) April 27, 2022 -- Ira Royster owner of the Villa South Inn and Restaurant (villasouth.com) has put his Sandersville, Georgia landmark up for sale in an unconventional way – on the online auction sites, eBay and Bidup (bidup.org)


Royster is selling the landmark motel and restaurant and stated he is ready to retire to his small farm and to help promote his family’s candle business, Wicks and Wonders Candles (georgiacandle.com).

Royster’s eBay effort even landed him coverage in the Atlanta Constitution and the Chicago Tribune about the site’s increasing number of real estate listing.

It appears to be generating considerable interest in the in the motel complex. Royster said the listing has generated numerous questions and some bids at the auction site. Royster further stated that he believes the site will sell on eBay and that the high bid so far has been $2,200,000. which was rather close to his minimum asking price and that people have contacted him from California to India.

The TDOC System - Powerful Cost Effective Software - for Construction Engineering Management Document Control

TDOC Projects Ltd releases ver 4.30 of The TDOC System. A proven software solution with a FREE Trial available, featuring Electronic Data Interchange with

(PRWEB) April 27, 2022 -- With the release of version 4.30, TDOC has again established itself as the market leading software for Construction Engineering Management Document Control for complex building and civil engineering projects.

It has been proven in the field over fifteen years. Current users include Standard Life, Mowlem Water Engineering, Balfour Beatty, Onyx and leading contractors to the rail sector. The system is capable of handling the most complex projects involving hundreds of thousands of documents. It is equally useful on small projects with just a few documents.

TDOC is one of the most powerful document control and management systems currently available. To date the system has been used on projects totalling £7 billion and the software has been continually refined and enhanced over the past 15 years. Developed by professional software developers under the direction of civil engineers and construction specialists, the software makes handling technical documents easier and more efficient. It can be used to organise drawings, specifications and schedules as well as general documentation such as Requests for Information, correspondence and forms.

The new version introduces an enhanced technical documents module making document transmittal even faster. When issuing documents by email all transmittals are generated in a user-selected format such as pdf. The attached documents are automatically compressed and attached to the despatched email together with an EDI note to allow receiving software (if available) to automatically record receipt. Alternatively CDs can be created to hold both the transmittal notes and the transmitted documents which is especially useful for contract tendering where paper prints are required,

Mowlem Water Engineering, the water engineering division of civil engineering giant Mowlems has successfully been using TDOC for technical document management and control for the past four years. "We are working on very large and complex engineering projects which generate hundreds of thousands of drawings and documents which are constantly being updated and revised," said Dave Hesketh, chief designer.

He added, "Without a system such as TDOC it would be a nightmare to keep track of the complex document approval cycle. The software does exactly what we need and we have been able to customise it to our particular methods of working."

The key benefits of TDOC can be summarised as follows:
- Easy to use with considerably less effort required compared to other systems such EDM and portal-based systems
- Chasing outstanding returns is automated
- TDOC makes it easy to generate complex reports, even on huge numbers of documents, with even more complex analysis and selection crtiteria.
- Handle paper and electronic documents in any mixture ? any TDOC generated document can be sent as paper, fax or electronically
- The whole team can access the information without disturbing the document controller and (with adequate communications infrastructure) can also be accessed over the internet.

For further information on, or a Free Trial of TDOC please visit www.TDOC.net

Please call 0141 637 3124 to arrange a presentation.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Sails Into the State of Hawaii

Concrete Washout Systems of Hawaii will begin servicing builders and contractors within the state of Hawaii.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 26, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with its newest partner, CWS Hawaii, who will begin distributing and servicing the Concrete Washout Systems™ (CWS) in Hawaii.


CWS Hawaii, a start-up company formed to distribute and service the Concrete Washout Systems™ containers, will begin servicing the entire state of Hawaii. Gregory Perrin, a veteran in the concrete pumping industry and owner of American Standard Concrete Pumping Hawaii, Inc., will be guiding the new company.

"Concrete washout is a huge problem for our Island construction community. CWS is the first system that fully addresses all the problems associated with concrete washout," stated Gregory Perrin, President of Concrete Washout Systems of Hawaii, Inc. "This system will help protect our Island's limited natural resources, landfills, marine life, water supply, and the beauty of our Island paradise," Mr. Perrin noted.

"Mr. Perrin's accomplishments and experience as a veteran in the concrete pumping industry have an immeasurable value to us and we are very excited to have him come aboard," stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "As a pump owner and operator, Mr. Perrin understands the compliance issues related to not only the pumping operations but the concrete industry in general and realizes the value and benefit of our business model. CWS Hawaii will be providing a much needed and innovative risk management tool and service to a strong construction market," added Mr. Mickelson.

Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, Phoenix, Arizona, Denver, Colorado and Southeast Florida.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application. This risk management system replaces other outdated washout BMP’s, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

About Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.
Concrete Washout Systems is a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling. The patent-pending Concrete Washout Systems provides a cost effective, environmentally friendly and compliance alternative for homebuilders, contractors, ready mix and pump operators and environmental engineering firms.

Electrophysics® Unveils Breakthrough Thermography Camera Highlighted by Cutting Edge Industrial Design

HotShot combines high performance and best in class ergonomic design in a cost-effective line of thermographic cameras.

Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 26, 2022 -- Focused on developing innovative infrared imaging cameras, Electrophysics is proud to introduce HotShot. HotShot represents a paradigm shift in thermography camera design and is an entirely new concept in industrial inspection data collection. HotShot is the world’s first thermography camera with an advanced ergonomic design, integrated data logger functionality and icon-based user interface. The camera was designed specifically for industrial inspection of high voltage electrical systems, production machinery and buildings. HotShot features a unique articulating thermal camera head that enables framing of electrical and mechanical systems from floor level to overhead while maintaining an optimal viewing angle and hand position, even when operating in tight spaces.


HotShot integrates a high performance microbolometer infrared sensor that delivers sharp, highly sensitive thermal images. It’s easy-to-use joystick control and 3.5” LCD touch screen with on screen control buttons, facilitates the identification of inspection point locations, incident information and observation details that can later be automatically incorporated into reports. A Compact Flash accessory port provides an industry standard interface for a wide range of existing and future accessory devices including a visible camera, CF memory cards, a WiFi card and a miniature hands-free viewfinder. The USB port and active sync provides an easy method for downloading data to a computer.

“During the early phases of our product development, we interviewed a large number of thermography camera users to learn what they wanted in a next generation camera. Responses were centered around making the user interface more intuitive and automating the methods of getting field information into reports,” said Chris Alicandro, Director of Sales for Electrophysics. “While a number of companies have focused on point-and-shoot cameras without the capability of data entry in the field, Electrophysics focused on a design that incorporated data capture routines and a tightly integrated report generation software program. Users also stated that they wanted much lighter weight systems that they could operate for longer periods of time on a single battery charge. Weighing less than 1.8 lbs and featuring a low-power design that will run for 4 hours on a single charge, the HotShot delivers a high level of power in a very lightweight housing,” concluded Alicandro.

Several HotShot models are available featuring application-specific software, extended object temperature ranges, as well as accessories, including both wide angle and telephoto optics. The base model features a temperature range from –20° to 350°C with +2% accuracy and an IP-54 environmental rating. The HotShot is also designed for field upgrades and customers will be able to upload new software as new features are added.

Headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey, Electrophysics develops advanced thermal imaging, near infrared and night vision systems for use in a host of imaging applications. Since 1969, Electrophysics has maintained its focus on delivering products that reflect the company’s exceptional engineering capabilities to meet specific real world demands while keeping pace with rapidly evolving imaging technologies. The Company has realized exceptional growth as a result of its customer-centric philosophy and remains firmly committed to continually innovating its products in order to enhance the experience of end-users. Electrophysics is vertically integrated with expertise in complex signal processing, optics, embedded software, PC software applications development and hardware design.

Breakthrough in Building, Home Distributor Works with South Carolina Businesses to Close Home Ownership Gap

Omega Quality Properties, LLC a Home Distributor of New York teams up with South Carolina businesses to help Baby Boomers, minorities and immigrants become homeowners.

(PRWEB) April 24, 2022 -- Look at Omega Quality Properties, LLC at http://www.Omegaqualityproperties.com that company specializes in panelized homes. Studies show that these homes are energy efficient and better than stick built. It’s like getting a luxury automobile for the price of a family car. Omega Quality Properties, LLC an independent Eagles Nest Homes Distributor, has teamed up with local businesses to close the homeownership gap. They hope to accomplish that by giving more Baby Boomers, minorities and immigrants help becoming homeowners. There initial efforts will involve getting accurate information to these groups about the homeownership process.

There is definitely a gap in homeownership between minorities and whites. This gap is due to a number of factors, namely misleading information. National Housing survey shows that there are four elements that keep the American Dream just a dream for some. These elements are information, confidence, credit and affordability. NHS survey shows that only 60 -percent of African Americans and 27- percent Spanish Hispanics knows that a 30-year mortgage commitment is not required. An overwhelming 57 percent of African Americans and 64 percent of English Hispanics believes perfect credit score is not necessary for a mortgage. Banks such as Indy Mac and Homeowners Mortgage finance people with challenged credit scores.

Minorities surveyed had other concerns about the homeownership process. The largest minorities groups are Hispanics 42%, African-American 32%, and Asian 17%. These groups lack confidence about the process, because of misleading information sent to them. The truth is each situation is different for each family. Their lack of confidence, according to the survey by NHS is also due to discrimination. In addition, lack of savings for down payment and closing costs were other reasons people failed to become homeowners.

Housing and Urban Development stepped in to help close the homeownership gap between whites and minorities. HUD announced $1.9 million is available for down payment assistance in South Carolina. These funds available through the American Dream Down Payment Initiative (ADDI) are available for first time homebuyers to use towards down payment and closing costs. These funds were earmarked for communities such as Charleston, Columbia and Richland County.

“I am excited about working with Mr. Vaught, Coldwell Banker and Mr. Holston, Holston JC Construction, Co. both of Columbia South Carolina to provide an affordable home,” says Jerome Frierson, VP of Omega Quality Properties, LLC. We have an innovative process that will give minorities and others confidence about the homeownership process. Panelized homes statistics shows that 56% of homes built were panelized homes instead of stick built. “The panelized home with builders’ assistance provides a greater incentive to build a home”, says David Straight, CEO of Eagles Nest Homes. “The potential of saving $25,000 on a $100, 000 home will spark the interest of a substantial amount of people he says.”

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Sweeps 2005 World of Concrete Awards

Experts and attendees agree, Concrete Washout Systems is the most innovative product at trade show.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 22, 2022 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., (CWS) announced today that it has received the coveted Most Innovative Product Award from the 2005 World of Concrete for its patent pending Concrete Washout Systems container.

Products were recognized by a panel, comprised of concrete and masonry industry experts, and World of Concrete attendees for having the greatest impact on the concrete or masonry industry. Concrete Washout Systems was awarded both the experts and attendees choice awards for the most innovative product in the production category.

"We are very pleased to have received both the experts' and attendees' choice awards this year at World of Concrete 2005. There were so many great products showcased at World of Concrete and we are appreciative of the recognition by both the groups," stated Mark Jenkins, President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "Attending World of Concrete this year allowed us not only the opportunity to demonstrate our system at the show but also the opportunity to provide awareness and a solution to the compliance issues the concrete and masonry industries face today," added Mr. Jenkins.

The patent pending CWS is a portable, self-contained and watertight bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and wastewater. It allows trade personnel to easily washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on site and facilitates easy off site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater, while protecting the storm drain system from potential illegal discharges. The off site recycling component creates an even more environmentally sound application. This system replaces other outdated washout BMP's, which are costly, unsightly and damaging to the environment since their containment value diminishes, due to inherently faulty material, over use and lack of maintenance.

About Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.
Concrete Washout Systems is a risk management specialist and industry pioneer in concrete washout and wastewater removal, treatment and recycling. The patent-pending Concrete Washout Systems provides a cost effective, environmentally friendly and compliance alternative for homebuilders, contractors, ready mix and pump operators and environmental engineering firms.

Leading Lighting Manufacturer, Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc. Commits to Making Every Day, Earth Day

For the Environment, One Day is not Enough!

Riverside, NJ (PRWEB) April 21, 2022 -- Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc. (www.SeaGullLighting.com) a leading manufacturer of functional and decorative lighting products, and Energy Star® Partner of the Year is reminding everyone that although Friday, April 22nd is the calendar date for Earth Day, individually and collectively we have the ability and power to make every day, Earth Day!

Business, organizations and consumers all play an important role in reducing harmful, greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our environment for future generations. For the past 15 years, Sea Gull Lighting has actively participated in the Energy Star program by dedicating its efforts to the development, refinement and marketing of hundreds of Energy Star qualified decorative lighting products.

According to Ace Rosenstein, Sea Gull Lighting vice president marketing and business development, "As a charter member of Energy Star since 1992 and honored Partner of the Year by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, Sea Gull Lighting has boldly pioneered the advance of energy efficient lighting as well as dedicated its resources to the promotion of the technology’s many environmentally-friendly and cost-saving benefits.”

Sea Gull Lighting currently markets over 500 Energy Star qualified lighting and ceiling fan products in a vast array of styles, colors and finishes to complement a wide range of decorative and functional demands of designers, builders, architects and home owners. Once known for green hues, humming and flickering, Sea Gull Lighting has worked closely with the EPA and others to advance fluorescent lighting technologies and fixture style making the latest Energy Star qualified lighting fixtures virtually indistinguishable from their traditional incandescent counterparts.

"I invite you to join me in celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Earth Day and take the time to reflect on our nation’s environmental accomplishments and recommit to challenges of the future", said EPA's Acting Administrator, Steve Johnson.

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of “Earth Day”. On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire. Now 35 years later, Earth Day is being celebrated around the globe. Through the combined efforts of the U.S. government, grassroots organizations, and citizens like you, what started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a world-wide campaign to protect our global environment.

Did You Know?
- Energy Star qualified lighting provides more light while using 2/3 less energy than standard incandescent lighting.
- The average home is responsible for more air pollution than the average car.
- If one room in every US household was brightened by Energy Star qualified lighting, the annual energy savings would be equivalent to removing more than 8 million cars from the road for one year.
- It’s easy to see that Energy Star qualified fixtures are a stylish addition to any décor. What you can’t see is that they use less energy with bulbs that last 6 to 10 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs.
- The US demand for electricity is due to increase 28% over the next 20 years. And global demand will double by 2025.

About Energy Star®
Energy Star was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce air pollution through increased energy efficiency. Today, the co-sponsored program between the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations. More than 7,000 organizations have become Energy Star partners and are committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes and businesses.

About Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc.
Headquartered in Riverside, New Jersey, Sea Gull Lighting Products, Inc., is a leading manufacturer and marketer of decorative and functional lighting as well as ceiling fans for residential, commercial and architectural applications.

The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group Launches First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp - Answers First Time Home Buying Burning Questions

The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group, a leading Minnesota Mortgage Broker, today announced the launch of its First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp.

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) April 21, 2022 -- The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group, http://www.The-AllenGroup.com/reg_class, a leading Minnesota Mortgage Broker today announced the launch of its First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp.

Deciphering mortgage rates and loan programs are just the beginning of what is most often an overwhelming home buying process for first time owners. A few of the top questions on the home buying checklist include “Should I choose a fixed or an adjustable rate? What are the advantages to working with a Broker vs. a Bank? How much can I afford without getting in over my head?”

“One of the more important things I learned during the first time homebuyers class was the importance of owning and the financial investment that goes along with it,” said Jon Canfield. “Another thing I learned was that the home buying process is complicated and very time and mind consuming. This was something that I was not aware of as a first time homebuyer. The class and the staff in place were very knowledgeable and easy to work with, making for a smooth and easy transition into buying my first home.”

There are many questions, both known and unknown, that can slow-down and many times derail the new home buying process, which are answered in the Boot Camp.

“The home buying process can seem very simple, but it’s what first time homebuyers DON’T know that can really hurt them,” said Cindy Allen, Allen Mortgage & Real Estate Group principal. “There are many expensive pitfalls that may not become evident until a new homebuyer is in the middle of an unforeseen problem. Then they must learn the hard way. We don’t want buying your first home to become a nightmare.”

Lack of knowledge, for first time homebuyers can cost thousands of dollars, which is why the First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp illustrates various mortgage programs, payment examples and other unknown expenses and potential challenges that must be taken into consideration before embarking on such a large and important investment.

“In order to help first time homebuyers become more prepared to make the biggest decision of their life, we are helping them by offering a comprehensive educational course,” said Allen. “The First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp is designed to help build a solid understanding in what can often be a misunderstood process.”

The First Time Homebuyers Boot Camp is designed to convey the home buying process from start to finish, from understanding credit scores to pre-approval to understanding what moves interest rates and knowing whether an ARM or Fixed mortgage, depending on an individual’s circumstances, is better for the first time homebuyer.

Class instructors cover many unasked, yet important concepts including strategies for increasing affordability, what should a first time homebuyer look for in their first home in order to move on to the second home when the time is right and an explanation of how owning a home can decrease income tax.

First Time Homebuyers Boot Camps are being hosted in the following MN communities:
April 27 – Edina
May 19 – Arden Hills
June 23 - Apple Valley
July 19 – Bloomington
Aug 24 – Blaine
Sept 22 – Woodbury
Oct 19 – Plymouth
Nov 14 – Lakeville
Dec 15 – Eden Prairie

About The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group
The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group has been a leading MN mortgage broker and mortgage lending company for nearly 20 years. With a commitment to first time homebuyers, the team at the Allen Mortgage & Real Estate Group commits to sharing the truth about the home buying process.

Theirry Francois' Scagliola Stone Show House will Host the Atlanta Symphony Associates 2005 Decorator’s Show House Charity Event

Theirry Francois' Scagliola Stone Show House will host the Atlanta Symphony Associates 2005 Decorator’s Show House Charity Event. Once a year, the Atlanta Symphony Association orchestrates an event that brings music and art, composers and designers, together. This year, it will be surrounded by the antique beauty of Scagliola Stone.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 21, 2022 -- Originally, 225 West Paces Ferry was created by Theirry Francois, owner of Stone Age Designs, http://www.stoneagedesigns.net/ as a vehicle for showcasing his Scagliola stone custom designed stone fireplace mantels and stone kitchen hoods while providing a medium to bring together some of Atlanta’s most talented architects, designers, and builders. This year he incorporates another group of artists by hosting the 2005 Atlanta Symphony Associates 35th annual decorator’s show house.

Attracting over 20,000 visitors, the Atlanta Symphony Associates Decorator’s Show House, http://www.decoratorsshowhouse.com, is an Atlanta spring tradition to raise money for the Atlanta Symphony orchestra and it’s community outreach programs. This year, 225 West Paces Ferry will showcase the work of Kasler, Topol, Weaks, and Oetgen (four Southeast Designer of the year honorees) and over 30 of the region’s top landscape and interior design artists, including the award winning designs of Stone Fireplace Mantels, and Stone Kitchen Hoods by Stone Age Designs.

"This home has provided a medium for us to come together to share our talents with one another, while benefiting a deserving charity like the Atlanta Symphony Associates," comments Theirry.

What makes this home truly unique, according to Theirry, "Is the Scagliola stone accents from the exterior throughout the interior." Stone Age Design’s cultured stone, http://www.stoneagedesigns.com/scagliola.html derived from the 17th century Italian "Scaglia" made by Italian monks is formed with Theirry Francois secret recipe for Scagliola - a blend of crushed marble, limestone, and travertine. This blend gives Theirry’s cast stone fireplace mantels and cast stone kitchen hoods the look of carved quarry stone, but is not as costly, is easy to use and install, and has unlimited design possibilities.

In fact, Stone Age Designs has a great deal of artistic freedom since the details of the designs are in the molds created from Theirry Francois secret recipe for Scagliola. Unlike the carved custom fireplace designs of the past, the molds are easily created for custom Stone Fireplace Mantels, and custom Stone Kitchen Hoods, from CAD drawings to create unique designs unlike any other stone fireplace mantel or cast stone stove hoods.

"No other home in the United States currently has more Scagliola stone. A range of custom Scagliola stone designs make this French home unique, adding a sense of European flavor and warmth" says Stone Age Designs. Undoubtedly, 225 West Paces Ferry, with it’s stone fireplace mantels, cast stone stove hood, stone walls, floors, columns, staircase, and exterior designs will provide an elegant backdrop for the 90+ musicians, informative demonstrations, and tastings scheduled to take place between April 16th and May 8th as part of the 35th annual Decorator’s Show House.

Four Pearls of Wisdom: The Elements of Amberly

Amberly, located in Cary, NC, will span 1,000 acres and offer 5,000 new homes. The Raleigh, North Carolina area recently received its first glimpse of the vision of Amberly.

Cary, NC (PRWEB) April 19, 2022 -- Beyond the towering trees and magnificent greenways of Amberly, deeply rooted in the vision created by its owners and developers, a revelation of four fundamental values will pave the future of this 5,000 home master planned community. Education, Wellness, Technology and Environment – four essential elements establish the inspirations of a community lifestyle previously unforeseen in the Triangle area and all of North Carolina.


The element of Environment speaks of the incredible outdoor opportunities Amberly offers, and was “chosen to represent nature because of its implication of a constant search for harmony with the earth,” said Bob Jones, General Manager of Amberly. With vast amounts of preservation areas and a portion of the community that borders property owned by the Army Corps of Engineers, Amberly will be a place where residents can fully communicate with their surroundings. The community’s natural backdrop will offer opportunities for residents to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle while constantly searching for natural harmony through the miles of greenways and walking trails.

Education is an element of Amberly that applies to all, as residents will be encouraged to continuously develop their minds within the framework of the fine public and private educational institutions that serve Amberly. Amberly, in affiliation with local universities, will attempt to broaden the scope of knowledge for residents through a multitude of programs. The community will also be heavily centered on arts and culture, and will provide residents with experiences that captivate the mind.

Technology will play a major role in the daily life at Amberly, providing new innovations to bring advancement in life. Amberly embraces a life full of new technologies and discoveries by incorporating the most up-to-date trends into the community. Amberly, which is located in close proximity to the Research Triangle Park, will build upon the vast technological resources of the surrounding area.

Wellness, the final element of Amberly’s founding, illustrates a thriving community – one where residents are given the ability to grow in a healthy manner. The community will emphasize complete wellness – mental as well as physical – and the pursuit of these objectives by providing wellness and continuing education, as well as a fitness center to promote a healthier lifestyle, which will be the cornerstone of this element.

“From the outset, our intention was to make Amberly a complete lifestyle experience for people of all ages. When coupled with all of the great assets of Cary and the Triangle area, Amberly is truly the place to live,” said David Guy, a principal with GS Carolina, Development Manager for Amberly.

“The core values – the range of elements that helped develop our vision – are the focal point for our efforts in developing Amberly,” added Bob Jones.

The inspirational concepts behind Amberly, “Education, Technology, Wellness and Environment,” will continue to ensure community growth, as its developers strive to offer residents everyday opportunities and escapes from their daily routines, allowing them to customize their lifestyles to suit their very own needs and desires.

The Amberly development team, along with several Cary officials, unveiled their vision and the founding elements for the master planned community at a grand opening event at the Mathews House in Cary. The “Friends of Amberly” event, which took place in early March, 2005, also featured a DVD presentation, the unveiling of Amberly’s logo and website, www.Amberly.com, and a dedication by the developer team.

Underwater Robot Keeps Divers Safe, Captures Detailed Video During Caribbean Refinery Inspection - ROV Assists Completing the Mission with Minimum Additional Cost

Ocean and Coastal Consultants, Inc. (OCC – ( http://www.ocean-coastal.com/ ) of Trumbull, CT is a recognized industry leader in civil, structural, coastal, and geotechnical engineering for waterfront structures. When tasked with inspecting an offloading pier at a Caribbean Refinery early this year, they started with standard Engineer-Diver techniques. However, due to safety concerns, making use of the Engineer-Divers was not possible.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Ocean and Coastal Consultants, Inc. (OCC – ( http://www.ocean-coastal.com/ ) of Trumbull, CT is a recognized industry leader in civil, structural, coastal, and geotechnical engineering for waterfront structures. When tasked with inspecting an offloading pier at a Caribbean Refinery early this year, they started with standard Engineer-Diver techniques. However, due to safety concerns, making use of the Engineer-Divers was not possible.

Electronic Sales of New England (ESNE - http://www.esalesne.com/ ), a premier technology provider in nearby Old Saybrook, CT was tasked with finding a solution - fast. Mark Warren, a Principal of ESNE recommended a VideoRay (http://www.Videoray.com) Remotely Operated Vehicle for its portability, ease of use, and maneuverability in tight locations. He had a leased unit on the way to the site within 18 hours of getting the call.

Jeff Snyder of OCC was the engineer and ROV operator on site. He commented on the mission - "Despite the fact that we had a mid-level VideoRay - the Explorer model - and I had previously operated a Pro III model – I was able to get everything we really needed in a very short period of time.” We inspected almost the entire structure, penetrating through locations where divers could not have entered safely. We also inspected mooring dolphins away from the primary structure. When we had problems or questions, the VideoRay team talked us through them by phone."

To do the inspection, Jeff broke the structure into segments where the VideoRay was flown on the surface to a piling, where it submerged for the underwater inspection. A full video documentation was recorded. He was able to inspect 75-95% of the support beams and underside of the concrete deck and was able to determine the condition of the beams and concrete. He was also able to see a good sample of the "H" piles and the center beam to make their determinations about the structural integrity of the facility. Stan White, president of OCC commented further: "There's two aspects to doing a job like this right. One aspect is to understand what to look for, how problems develop and how they can be fixed - the engineering expertise our firm has worked years to develop. Another is stay on top of the right tools as they become available, and keep your people safe and productive.

The quick deployment of the VideoRay to solve a field discovered condition on this job is something we're proud of - and we're proud of Jeff for the way he pulled it off." Scott Bentley, the president of VideoRay, compared the development of ROV technology to the early years of computer development. "A popular misconception in the 1980s was that big computers were needed for 'big' computer jobs. Many people feel that way about ROVs - only big ROVs can do big jobs. We're now learning that smaller is better on inspection ROVs - VideoRays have the thrust, control, cameras, and accessories needed to inspect this site, which was very large and very complicated. Look for VideoRay to develop even more capable units in the near future."

Termite Damage Repairs

Termite damage can be avoided with these common sense tips from experts. Protect your house now, or pay the price later.

(PRWEB) April 17, 2022 -- www.fscci.com helps homeowners recover from the devastating damage of termites.


Residents of North metro Atlanta are getting online to seek qualified contractors with experience in termite damage repairs. With swarm season in full swing, Atlanta residents are in the unwelcome position of finding their homes invaded and damaged by these flying pests.

Though termite infestation is more evident during swarm season, termites do damage to property year round. Unlike most home repairs, the extent of termite damage is not always immediately evident. What appears to be a small dimple in drywall can be removed to expose extensive 2x4 damage.

Www.fscci.com has nearly ten years of experience with this unpredictable type of repair work in the Atlanta area.

Doug Boyer, president of Four Seasons Construction Company, Inc. says, “It’s not just a run of the mill repair. It’s about restoring the structural and aesthetic integrity of the home and making suggestions to keep the property safe in the future.”

Boyer offers a few good tips for homeowners, including making sure the exterior sheathing of your home is at least 6" above grade, not using pine bark and other wood landscaping products directly against your home’s foundation, and keeping plants far enough away from your foundation so you can have a clear view.

Termites are subterranean and make “mud trails” from the earth to get to an easily accessible (edible) part of your home. If you can easily view your foundation wall, you can see these trails early, and get your home treated before damage occurs.

Four Seasons Construction Company, Inc. recommends a regular termite treatment plan with a reputable pest control service that offers a repair bond.

“Repairs can be costly and time is not on your side,” Boyer said. He went on to state that a company that offers a repair bond is willing to stand behind their product.

Www.fscci.com is owned and operated by Four Seasons Construction Company, Inc. which specializes in termite damage repairs and residential remodeling in the North metro Atlanta area.

Uncovered Window Wells Trap Children

Uncovered window wells become even more hazardous this time of year, as children start playing—and exploring—outdoors. The cure can create new safety hazards if covers are bolted or locked down to prevent emergency egress from the basement.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2022 -- Uncovered window wells become even more hazardous this time of year, as children start playing—and exploring—outdoors. The cure can create new safety hazards if covers are bolted or locked down to prevent emergency egress from the basement.


“Buy a cover that supports adult weight, locks from the outside to keep out intruders and overly-curious kids, and unlocks from the inside if you need to get out of your basement in a hurry,” advises custom window well cover manufacturer Glynn Kierstein.

“A quality-built window well cover will provide many years of peace of mind and protection for a very modest investment—especially when considering the price you may pay for poor quality or no protection at all,” adds Kierstein, maker of the Coverwell™ custom window well cover.

Selecting a suitable window well cover can be perplexing. Following are tips to help you decide:

1. Address strength and durability. Generally, the more you’re willing to spend, the more strength and longevity you buy. If you want the cover to support the weight of a child or adult, a major safety consideration, you’ll want a higher-end plastic or metal cover. And, how long does it need to last without discoloring or falling apart?

2. Assess less-obvious functionality. Other important functional issues include sloping to allow water run off, ability to cover windows that extend above the walls, construction that prevents wind vibration, and ability to eliminate up to 15% of heat loss through the windows. Think about what you want the cover to cover in terms of specialized functional needs.

3. Assess aesthetics. A good-looking window well cover can add to property value. Think about form versus function. If, for example, you want the cover to look good for appraisal or resale purposes, buy accordingly.

4. Consider security. Crime statistics show that 4% of burglars gain access through basement windows. Think about the security benefits of a locking window well cover.

5. Consider emergency safety. Think about egress issues when buying a cover. Type of installation and locking systems will determine the ability to exit in case of a fire or other emergency.

6. Get fit. Decide how well you want the cover to fit, both a form and function consideration. Well-fitting covers help ensure best function (e.g., no gapping that allows in excessive moisture) and, obviously, can look better than the result of fitting a square peg into a round hole.

7. Examine ventilation. Proper ventilation prevents condensation and heat buildup. Determine the importance of ventilation and buy accordingly.

8. Get light. Some covers block considerable light—either because of the type of construction or rapid discoloration. Decide how much light you want, and select a cover that won’t easily discolor.

9. Mount up. Think about whether the cover will be mounted to the well or wall. Generally, the less standard your requirements, the more customization will be required.

10. Clean up. Ease of cleaning either the well or the cover should be factored into the buying decision. Easy cover removal, self-cleaning aspects and portability are factors to consider.

A well-covered window well can add peace of mind, safety, security and value to your property.

Brazos Masonry Signs with Bricklayers' Union - CEO Cites Growing Demand for Skilled Masonry Workers in Texas and Oklahoma

Large, highly respected Texas firm voluntarily enters collective bargaining agreement to get access to local labor union's skilled workers and training. Training is done using Mobile Training Units that go to the job sites where the labor shortage is.

Amarillo, TX (PRWEB) April 15, 2022 -- In a move that’s captured the attention of construction industry observers across the Southwest, Mackie Bounds, CEO and Owner of Brazos Masonry in Waco recently signed an agreement with Local 5 Oklahoma/Arkansas/Texas of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) after 15 years of operating without a collective bargaining agreement.

“We welcome Brazos Masonry’s commitment to the labor-management process and are confident that this cooperative partnership will expand work opportunities for Brazos Masonry and for BAC members,” said BAC president John J. Flynn.

“This was the best business decision I’ve ever made,” said Mackie Bounds, CEO and Owner of Brazos Masonry of Waco. “Brazos had two high-profile projects in the Panhandle -- the Globe-News Center of Performing Arts in Amarillo and the Texas Tech residence hall in Lubbock – but there weren’t enough skilled masonry workers in those areas. So we went to the BAC for recruitment and training.”

“I can’t say enough about the quality of their work and their work ethic – as far as I’m concerned, I want Brazos to be union shop on all of our projects,” Mr. Bounds said.

A key factor was the use of BAC’s Mobile Training Units, which went to Brazos job sites in Amarillo and Lubbock, “and turned unskilled workers into well-trained, highly skilled bricklayers,” Bounds said. BAC President Flynn noted that the mobile units “are creating new opportunities for our members not only in Texas, but around the country.“

In response to the region’s growing demand for skilled masonry workers, BAC recently launched an aggressive campaign to train bricklayers throughout the Southwest through the use of mobile classrooms. These Mobile Training Units compliment BAC’s existing network of local, regional, and national training centers and programs, which it operates in partnership with the International Masonry Institute (IMI), the training and marketing arm jointly controlled by labor and management. The BAC/IMI training system has turned heads in Texas and led more than one leading business, including Brazos Masonry, to become a union contractor.

The Mobile Training Units allow for in-class, state-of the art instruction on topics ranging from the installation of new materials to jobsite safety to journey-level upgrade courses Because training can be conducted right on the job site, local workers, such as those in Amarillo and Lubbock, gain skills and, then, are hired for projects in their communities.

The units help BAC meet many of its goals, including providing access to good jobs that provide quality benefits and safe work environments. “Training is the way we can keep our members competitive and ensure that the art of masonry survives in this age of automation and new materials. The success of this project is demonstrated by the commitment of Brazos Masonry, a company with which we are proud to work and with whom we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship,” said Ed Navarro President of the BAC Local 5 Oklahoma/Arkansas/Texas.

The Mobile Training Units, which are currently deployed in Amarillo and Lubbock, will continue to move throughout the region to host programs and provide training to Local Union members. Due to the initial success of the Units, BAC plans to launch more units during the next several months.

International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers represents 100,000 skilled masonry workers in the United States and Canada. Founded in 1865, it is the oldest continuous union in North America. For more information, visit www.bacweb.org.

International Masonry Institute is a joint labor-management cooperative program of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) and the contractors who employ its members. Its core programs are quality craft training, research and development, and technical assistance to the design and building communities. For more information, visit www.imiweb.org.

Brazos Masonry, Inc. Inc. of Waco, Texas, is one of Central Texas's most respected and successful masonry contractors. In 2002, the 16-year-old company ranked second among all masonry companies on the Texas Construction Top Specialty Contractors list. The company has received numerous Excellence in Masonry and Golden Trowel awards and completed many high profile projects, including Southwest Texas University at Georgetown, the student life and baseball facilities at Baylor University, upgrades to the football stadium at the University of Texas, and Baylor’s Humphrey Law Center, which won Best Masonry Project in the 2002 Best of Texas Awards. www.brazosmasonry.com.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Signs Exclusive Agreement with the Nations Largest Waste Container Manufacturer

Wastequip will begin manufacturing and marketing Concrete Washout Systems containers.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 14, 2022 - Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., (CWS) announced today that Wastequip Manufacturing, the nations largest solid and liquid waste container manufacturer, has signed an exclusive agreement and will begin manufacturing and marketing the patent pending concrete washout systems containers.

For more information visit http://www.wastequip.com .

"We welcome the opportunity to work with Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. in providing the building trades and concrete industries with a quality, cost-effective, and environmentally compliant alternative to their concrete washout needs," stated Bob Rasmussen, president and chief executive officer of Wastequip.

"We are very pleased to have Wastequip as an exclusive manufacturing and marketing partner with the market share they represent. With our other exclusive manufacturer for the west coast, we have aligned ourselves with the two largest container manufacturers in the United States," stated Mark Jenkins, President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. "Wastequip is at the forefront of their industry because they maintain a strong commitment and personal interest with their clients and they seek out new technologies, such as ours, that impact their client's business and ultimately their client's bottom line.

DreamBeachHouses.com: A Beautiful New Southwest Florida Real Estate Website

Homebuyers dreaming of a place amidst sand, sun and coconuts can now spend hours exploring beautiful island, waterfront and water view homes in startlingly clear high-definition virtual tours on a Southwest Florida Realtor’s recently-launched website - DreamBeachHouses.com – and might find themselves booking a flight to Fort Myers afterward.

Sanibel, FL (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 14, 2022 – Homebuyers dreaming of a place amidst sand, sun and coconuts can now spend hours exploring beautiful island, waterfront and water view homes in startlingly clear high-definition virtual tours on a Southwest Florida Realtor’s recently-launched website – and might find themselves booking a flight to Fort Myers afterward. Viewed on DreamBeachHouses.com America’s continental subtropics are more alluring than ever.

“Last year I was sitting in front of the computer in New York squinting at virtual tours on Realtor.com, browsing properties in California, Florida, New Mexico – anyplace warm and beautiful,” says Brad Bealmear, an agent for VIP Realty in Fort Myers and the force behind DreamBeachHouses.com, “but as a commercial photographer I had problems with the quality. Most of those tours look like you are viewing a room through a Coke bottle. Then I came across a group of virtual tours in Southwest Florida that were different – compared to the others the tours resembled Cinerama. It dawned on me that if I worked with the company (SWFL360.com, based in Cape Coral) I could combine my photography with real estate sales in one of the most desirable areas in the US and produce one very nice website.” And that is how it happened, with Bealmear offering high-quality photographic tours and a handsome home on the Internet to his listings at no charge.

Although most of the properties displayed on the website are high-end (and some are VERY high end) Bealmear insists that there are plenty of great lower-cost buys to be made in the area. “Fort Myers downtown is going through a renaissance and there will be lots of exciting new building along the Caloosahatchee Riverfront, while at the same time there are cool old ‘20s houses in the area still priced fairly low - for a little while longer.” He says. “Cape Coral is an unbelievable place – you just have to see it. There are 400 miles of canals and you can get a nice house on the water with a pool very reasonably.” Somewhat pricier areas featured on the site are Sanibel and Captiva Islands (over half of Sanibel is preserve) Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island.

Hurricane Charley buzz-sawed through the area in August, but the real estate industry seems to have barely noticed. Prices only dipped in directly-hit areas, and that looks to be a fleeting phenomenon as the entire region continues to enjoy steadily rising value in its housing. There are only a certain number of square miles of inhabitable subtropical land in the continental US, and of that a much smaller area of island property. When residents are seen wasting no time rebuilding and replanting after a disaster, then that area can only be seen as quite a good bet for real estate investment. Owners of the homes so beautifully displayed on DreamBeachHouses.com are obviously finding the region to be well worth the money spent.

International Barrier Releases the First Series of Technical Bulletins that Substantiate the Superior Strength of Blazeguard as a Construction Material

International Barrier Technology Inc. (“Barrier”) (IBTGF: OTCBB; IBH: TSXV), a manufacturer of proprietary fire resistant building materials, recently released two technical bulletins, detailing improvements in load strength and nail pullout resistance over traditional building materials.

Watkins, MN / Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) April 14, 2022 -- International Barrier Technology Inc. (“Barrier”) (IBTGF: OTCBB; IBH: TSXV), a manufacturer of proprietary fire resistant building materials, recently released two technical bulletins, detailing improvements in load strength and nail pullout resistance over traditional building materials.

The Blazeguard® brand of fire resistant deck panelling was tested according to APA Test Method S-2 for ability to withstand uniform loading by Progressive Engineering, Inc., of Goshen, IN, an ISO certified facility. The Blazeguard® FR Deck Panel C showed significant improvement in ultimate load strength over untreated substrate, a result which should be considered whenever design loads are a deciding factor in fire resistant panel selection.

The same deck panel (also known as Mule-Hide FR Deck Panel C) was also tested by Progressive Engineering for nail withdrawal resistance. These test results showed that in situations where nail pullout or wind lift resistance is a concern, Blazeguard® panelling was found to be over 50% more resistant than untreated 7/16” OSB substrate.

Blazeguard® has many properties which are superior to alternate fire rated material choices" said Michael Huddy, Ph.D., International Barrier's President. "The certification of these properties through a nationally recognized organization enables architects and building design specifiers to use these properties to their advantage, providing greater market opportunity and sales. Strength gain and nail pull, in particular, will help modular builders design and build roof decks for snow, wind and earthquake zones more efficiently."

The results of these two tests demonstrate that in addition to Blazeguard’s® fire resistant capabilities, the panelling also exhibits inherent compositional strengths that exceed APA requirements and criteria. These strengths are proven to result in structural improvements over traditional untreated building materials.

The bar has been set extremely high for all new Silver Cross franchisees.

According to it's founder the main reason for the success of Silver Cross is the quality of people being choosen to award a franchise coupled with an extremely strong marketing system in a market segment that is about to explode.

National Noise Epidemic Calls for Soundproofing

Ever increasing noise levels impact millions more each year, causing increased stress, disturbed sleep patterns and a deteriorating quality of life.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 11, 2022 -- Without soundproofing, peace and quiet is almost impossible to achieve. The US Census Bureau estimates a population rise of 5% by 2010, which is a major contributor to the noise problem. Additionally, air traffic is expected to grow 4.3% annually through 2015 and automobile ownership is projected to grow over 15% by 2010 in some areas.

The escalation in noise has resulted in dozens of noise-related lawsuits against next-door neighbors, airports, railroads, nightclubs, supermarkets and dog owners, citing everything from noise-induced hearing loss, non-physical stress and annoyance, noise pollution, to disturbing the peace and quiet.

Many sound walls have been built as a means of soundproofing homes situated next to freeways and other busy traffic areas; unfortunately instead of solving the noise problem, they just “spread it around”. The closest homes have the noise reduced from “very loud” to “loud”, but many more homes have their noise levels changed from a tolerable level into a significant noise problem.

Many home owners, businesses and developers are taking soundproofing into their own hands, rather than expecting someone else to do something about it.

Unable to sleep comfortably previously, a 15th floor apartment dweller on Second Avenue in New York City stated that after soundproofing, the street noise was barely noticeable and sleeping became a pleasure instead of a struggle.

One Louisiana bed-and-breakfast owner had continuous complaints about the noise level from the bar next door. After taking measures to soundproof their establishment, a 150-year old house, the complaints completely stopped.

Some developers offer soundproofing as an upgrade to their standard home designs. It took one Northern California developer over a year to sell 9 of the 12 homes he had just built when offering soundproofing only as an upgrade; on the last three homes, he decided to pre-install the soundproofing, and sold these almost immediately.

“You can do something about the noise problem with soundproofing, even if a highway is only 50 feet away from your home,” explains soundproofing expert, and president of Soundproof Windows, Randy Brown. “For existing homes and buildings, the thing to do is to install soundproofing to handle the greatest noise source: your windows.”

“To say ‘People can learn to live with the noise’ is unacceptable,” adds Brown. “’Soundproofing’ is a relative term: 100% soundproofing is not possible, even with specially built sound studios. But with other less drastic measures you can stop 75 to 95% of the noise, which does not even require replacing your windows.” Brown notes that adding dual pane windows alone will only reduce noise levels by 20% at best.

Ground Broken for Cutting-Edge Logistics Center at Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport

Trammell Crow launches four-building project to provide first ever cargo facility to support Airbus A380 aircraft. The project will ultimately result in 743,000 SF of new class A and rentable apron space. Bob Moore Construction is the general contractor for this project.

(PRWEB) April 11, 2022 -- Bob Moore Construction, on behalf of Trammell Crow Company, has broken ground for a multi-building project on a 35-acre tract at the Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport. This four-building project features the United States’ first cargo facilities designed to support the Airbus A380 aircraft.

The Groundbreaking Ceremony took place on March 17, 2022 at D/FW Airport. Steve Bradford, principal of Trammell Crow Company's Global Airport Development, hosted the event and Jeff Fegan, CEO of D/FW Airport, was featured speaker.

The recent groundbreaking initiates the project's first phase, which includes the 114,000 SF CargoCentre III, the 114,300 SF AirFreight & LogisticsCentre I and the 114,200 SF AirFreight & LogisticsCentre II, to be completed in October. The project will ultimately include expansions of these buildings and one additional building - AirFreight & LogisticsCentres III - for a combined total of 743,000 SF of class A and rentable apron space.

A key feature of the cargo building's design is that it will support parking for four Boeing 747-400F planes or three of the new Airbus A380 aircraft. No other U.S. airport has a cargo facility that can park these wide-body planes by its logistics space.

Bob Moore Construction is the general contractor for this project. Carter & Burgess Inc. of Fort Worth is the lead architect and engineer, and Gromatzky Dupree & Associates of Dallas also worked on the design.

"I've been involved in this project for almost four years," said Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction. "Coordinating with all the various parties and getting it to this point has been a very complex and challenging process. Several people, including Steve Bradford and Robert Brandt of Trammell Crow Company, worked closely to get this done. When you work this long to make something happen, it's very gratifying when everything finally falls into place. I'm excited to see the equipment rolling and the sitework started for the new buildings.

"I'm proud that Bob Moore Construction will play a major role in the creation of these very important additions to D/FW Airport as well,” Whitesell added. “When this project is complete, the Metroplex will be able to boast capabilities that no other city in the country can match. It will be good for the airport and good for our local economy.”

Modular Building Specialist, Yorkon Is Awarded Its 50th Contract for Tesco

Off-site construction specialist and Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, has been awarded its 50th contract for the UK’s biggest supermarket retailer, Tesco.

(PRWEB) April 10, 2022 -- Off-site construction specialist and Portakabin subsidiary, http://www.yorkon.co.uk/[Yorkon], has been awarded its 50th contract for the UK’s biggest supermarket retailer, Tesco.

Yorkon is now the sole modular building supplier for Tesco’s ‘Express’ convenience stores and since forming the partnership in 2001, has manufactured buildings worth in the region of £11m for sites as far afield as North Yorkshire and Dorset.

Yorkon’s 50th construction project for Tesco is a new 3,000 sqft standalone store at Fazakerley near Liverpool. Developed on a brownfield site, the store will comprise 9 12m long steel-framed modules and will feature curtain walling to two elevations, a sloping white fascia canopy and full height glazed automatic sliding doors.

The modules will be craned into position complete with glazing, floor tiles, internal walls, freezer/chiller, checkouts, plumbing and toilets pre-installed in the factory. This more innovative method of construction reduces the programme time for a typical Tesco Express store to just four weeks from erection of the building to completion, whilst improving quality, cost control and safety on site.

Guy Digby, Property Services Manager for Tesco Express, said, “Our aim is to deliver stores which meet the changing needs of our customers and to provide a pleasant working environment for our staff. To this end, Tesco formed a partnership with Yorkon three years ago, having explored the benefits of off-site construction, which with volume, is more cost-effective, guarantees quality and reduces build times to the benefit of our customers.”

Keith Blanshard, Director and General Manager of Yorkon added, “We are delighted to be awarded our 50th order for Tesco. This partnership is the result of long-term commitment and a process of continuous improvement on the part of both organisations, ensuring Tesco and its customers receive the highest standards of quality, service and value.”

Yorkon manufactures two store designs for Tesco Express – a standalone option and a store for petrol forecourts. These are available in three store sizes – 2,000 sqft, 2,500 sqft and 3,000 sqft and two layout configurations to suit individual sites. Yorkon has also completed a number of bespoke projects for Tesco, including a 2-storey store with office accommodation above the retail area, pitched roof and brick cladding.

Tesco Express customers also benefit from an in-store bakery, ATM machine, air conditioning and the availability of fresh, frozen and chilled products.

Yorkon Hands Over New School Building In Just 5 Months

Off-site construction specialists and Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, has completed the design and construction of a new school building for Leeds City Council. The 1,000 sqm facility for children with special needs was handed over just five months after the contract was awarded.

(PRWEB) April 10, 2022 -- Off-site construction specialists and Portakabin subsidiary, http://www.yorkon.co.uk/[Yorkon], has completed the design and construction of a new school building for Leeds City Council. The 1,000 sqm facility for children with special needs was handed over just five months after the contract was awarded.


The original school was destroyed by fire, and has been replaced by a purpose-designed building on a new site adjacent to Farnley High School. Built around a central courtyard, the single-storey self-contained school accommodates 7 general classrooms; an ICT suite; design technology, science and food technology laboratories; music and art rooms, and offices.

Internally, the school has a light and bright design theme decorated in around 20 vibrant colours chosen by the children from each year. The building is constructed from 26 steel-framed modules, which were manufactured off-site and craned into position during half term. This approach minimised disruption to teaching at the adjacent school, which remained fully operational throughout the construction programme.

Peter Miller, Headteacher at the new West Leeds Specialist Inclusive Centre, said, “Everyone thinks the new school is brilliant. Parents, students and staff are all genuinely delighted with the facilities. The quality of finish is impressive, the design was sufficiently flexible to meet our requirements and the speed of construction was critical. Now that the building is open, we have seen huge benefits to the school day and in the quality of education we can provide.”

“The timescale for this project was challenging because the children from the original school were having to study in interim accommodation on split sites”, said Chris Langley, Operations Manager at Yorkon. “Off-site construction meant the new building could be up and running much faster – with a positive benefit to the children’s education and with significantly less disruption to the other school on the site.”

Yorkon designed, manufactured and fitted out the new school in a £1.2m contract, which also included provision of mechanical and electrical services, data cabling, laboratory facilities and benches, partitions and internal doors.

Yorkon has been manufacturing award-winning modular buildings for schools for more than two decades. This highly innovative method of construction is an efficient alternative to traditional site-based construction – saving time, guaranteeing quality and minimising disruption to teaching and local residents.

Editor’s Notes

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. Completes Interior Demolition and Used Equipment Salvage Project

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., a specialized contractor providing demolition, equipment salvage, dismantlement, onsite concrete crushing, scrap metal recycling and used/surplus equipment sales to various industries recently completed the interior demolition and removal of used equipment from a former office and light manufacturing building in New Jersey.

South Plainfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 8, 2022 -- Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. (Dallas Contracting) was contracted by a large general contractor to provide interior demolition services and equipment removal at a 100,000 square foot office and light manufacturing building located in central New Jersey. The scope of work included interior demolition of all interior sheetrock walls, partitions, flooring, drop ceilings and HVAC. It also included the removal of all mechanical and boiler room equipment.

Interior demolition (also known as strip-out or gut-out) of the 100,000 sf building was conducted utilizing a 10-man crew with several scissor lifts and skid steers. The crew systematically worked from the rear of the building towards the front demolishing the sheetrock walls, partitions, floor coverings, drop ceilings and HVAC. Workers on scissor lifts utilized demolition saws and torches to cut piping, ductwork and other conduit. Debris and garbage was removed utilizing skid steers. The skid steers were also utilized to help sort salvageable scrap metal and then load the scrap metal into containers for offsite recycling.

A mechanical room containing chillers, boilers, switchgear, compressors and air dryers also needed to be completely gutted. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. utilized a combination of our interior demolition and rigging crews and our investment recovery and used equipment-purchasing experts to salvage equipment for resale. Equipment salvaged for resale included various pumps, air compressors and associated air dryers and filters, switchgear, dry type transformers and several motors. The remaining equipment was either too old or outdated to be of any value for resale. This non-salvageable equipment was cut up and sent offsite for scrap metal recycling.

Dallas’s first goal was to itemize, salvage and rig out all the resalable used equipment. Packaging and filling line equipment including conveyors were dismantled, match marked and sent to several end user buyers. Stainless steel storage and process tanks were rigged out of the facility using forklifts and equipment rollers. There were over ten (10) stainless steel tanks of various sizes and capacities. Some of the tanks were immediately sold and some were sent to our storage yard to be inventoried for future sales. There were also compressors, transformers, mixers, pumps, valves, and scales that were placed on pallets and either sold immediately or brought back to the yard for inventory and future sale. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. maximized the value of the scrap metal by sorting ferrous and non-ferrous metals and through our strong relationships in the scrap metal market.

The entire project was completed in a month and a half. There were no injuries or incidents as safety is the number one priority for Dallas Contracting.

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. is a demolition, salvage and concrete crushing contractor based in New Jersey. We have been in business for over 25 years, are financially sound (D&B; Rating of 3A2) and bondable. Our work is completed professionally with an OSHA trained workforce. We provide the following services: Demolition, Industrial Demolition, Building Demolition, Concrete Aggregate Crushing, Remediation, Construction Demolition, Rigging, Brownfield Redevelopment, Surplus Equipment Sales, Interior Demolition, Equipment Removals, Dismantlement, Environmental Services, Plant Relocations, Investment Recovery, Used Equipment Sales, Wrecking, Equipment Salvage and Scrap Metal Recycling.

Celebrating 20 Years of Happy Cracks: The Crack Team Foundation Repair Specialists Charting Significant Expansion in the Next Two Decades

Acknowledge and disregard conventional wisdom. Buck trends. And by all means, incorporate humor into your business. These are the exceptional philosophies that have brought success to The Crack Team since its launch in 1985. The Crack Team, St. Louis-based foundation repair specialists, now commemorating its 20th anniversary, has locations in Boston, Chicago, Detroit and Kansas City.

(PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- This year marks the 20th anniversary of The Crack Team, the St. Louis-based foundation repair specialists with branches in the Boston, Chicago, Detroit and Kansas City areas. Since launching in 1985, the company has evolved from an offshoot of another into a nationally recognized enterprise, widely known for its unmistakable branding and outstanding franchise opportunity. The Crack Team thrives due to it’s commitment to a single core service and philosophy that business and humor need not be mutually exclusive.

Through two decades when many business owners turned to technology and diversification of products or services as primary business strategies, The Crack Team remains focused solely on low-tech residential foundation repair. “I am proud to say it is rare that a home repair business has such longevity,” says Mike Kodner, founder and chairman of The Crack Team. “I credit our long term success in part to the fact that we have not changed the fundamentals of the business since day one. We offer a quick, permanent, cost-effective solution to a common problem. In this industry, where referrals and reputation are everything, homeowners know The Crack Team is a company they can trust.”

It’s been that way since 1985 when Mike Kodner began concentrating solely on the foundation repair segment of his home remodeling business. After his transition from a successful career in home building to high-end basement remodeling, he repeatedly heard homeowner concerns about leaky basement cracks. His innovative resin-injection system solved the problems associated with what was frequently a messy, painstaking and invasive home repair process. As all homes with poured-concrete foundations are inherently susceptible to cracking, he soon realized he had discovered a niche and launched The Crack Team.

Bob Kodner, president of the company, took the reigns from his father Mike, to whom he refers as “the Ray Kroc of crack” in 1993. Bob Kodner believes that humor and professionalism can, and should, coexist. His philosophy has served the company extremely well. He created the branding that truly personifies the company – the cheerful concrete mascot Mr. Happy Crack. When introduced in 2002, Mr. Happy Crack significantly enhanced the company’s already successful business and catapulted The Crack Team into everyday lexicon when bus ads all over St. Louis proclaimed Mr. Happy Crack’s slogan, “A dry crack is a happy crack!”

Mr. Happy Crack literally puts a friendly face on a cracked foundation, a problem that causes great anxiety for homeowners. Kodner’s vision resulted in the holy grail of branding for any business -instant recognition with extraordinary consumer recall. “We’re building one of the greatest brands in American business,” he says.

In 2004 alone, Mr. Happy Crack was named “favorite local advertising icon” in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch online reader’s poll, “the biggest celebrity in St. Louis” and “perhaps the greatest print ad in history” by St. Louis magazine. Beyond increasing sales leads and opportunities for positive publicity, the distinctive branding generates revenue through a line of merchandise and apparel featuring Mr. Happy Crack. The apparel, available for purchase online at mrhappycrack.com, builds awareness of The Crack Team brand name and creates fans across the country. Further, and perhaps most importantly in terms of potential growth, franchisees benefit from and appreciate the instant recognition.

In addition to marking a company milestone, the year 2005 coincides with a defining moment for The Crack Team. While maintaining dedication to the core business philosophy, Bob Kodner has primed the company for expansion via an expertly designed franchise system. 2004 set the stage with the launch of the first franchise locations outside the St. Louis area in Chicago, Boston, Kansas City and Detroit. Now the company is on track to reach its goal of 100 franchises by 2007. The Crack Team offers anything but the cookie-cutter business opportunity stereotypically associated with the word “franchise.”

Kodner comments that he “worked methodically to design an atypical franchise system. We appeal to a businessman looking for an extraordinarily hands-on investment.” He counts 2004 as one of the most personally rewarding years of his involvement with the company. “Our charter franchise owners are savvy entrepreneurs and a great example of the direction we’re going. We’re excited about the potential of The Crack Team brand and look forward to many more years of growth.”

New, Free Website Links California Consumers with Service Pros in Everything from Construction to Babysitting

Are you familiar with the age-old problem of trying to find good help? You’re not alone.

(PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- If you live in Northern California, pay a visit to www.servicesagent.com and you will see why this unique website might be the next revolution in business-to-consumer communications. This free web service is where you find good help you can trust – quickly, simply and economically.


Say you have a contract job available for home repairs, but don’t have the inclination to plow your way through the Yellow Pages in search of a laborer capable of completing the job on time and on budget. At ServicesAgent.com, just enter the details of the project through common text fields and easy-to-navigate dropdown menus, post any sample pictures of the project and enter the area dimensions. Next, a service professional bids on your Request for Quote. You view the bids, select the one that best suits your needs and then both you and the service professional are given access to contact one another.

“Some of the jobs you’ll find posted on our site include home improvements, housecleaning, babysitting, landscaping and catering, among others,” explained Noel Rodriguez, one of three Bay Area-based graduate students who created the site. “If a service you’re looking for isn’t there, you can add a new service listing and we do the research to find a service provider in that area. We also leverage a network of service providers who routinely bid on projects and the customer decides who to work with based on the service provider’s profile. You can sit back and relax while ServicesAgent does the shopping for you.”

But perhaps the most unique feature to this site is the WOM or Word-of-Mouth score. In much the same way eBay helps buyers evaluate the trustworthiness of sellers through a referral rating system, ServicesAgent.com utilizes the WOM score to assist consumers in making an informed decision when hiring a service professional. The higher that professional’s WOM score, the more referrals he or she has received through contracting jobs via the website. This special feature is just one of the ways ServicesAgent.com is helping consumers find good help.

And for the service professional, the Services Showcase link allows you to design your own webpage in minutes through ServicesAgent’s easy-to-use template, complete with your WOM score, project details and pictures in order to help your organization promote itself and gain more business.

“Service providers also benefit from ServicesAgent.com because it gives them an online presence and lets them select projects that match their delivery capabilities,” noted Gerardo Galvan, another partner in the company. “Since we launched officially last December, we have been really successful in signing up new members and customers have expressed their pleasure with the quality of the vendors and the work they performed. To reward service providers who do a good job, we assign the WOM score and this helps the customer make a more informed decision.

“Bridging the gap between customers and service providers is what ServicesAgent is all about,” he added.

Customers are already recognizing the power of ServicesAgent.com to reduce the time, complexity and pure frustration of finding the right person to do the job.

“As a nurse working 12 hours in ICU, I do not have time in my busy schedule to spend searching, calling and making appointments with contractors for my home projects,” said Anna, a recent customer. “I had a heritage tree removed from my front yard using Services Agent. The process was simple – I submitted my request for a quote with pictures and within days I received five bids for my project. I saved time and money and the project was done effortlessly.”

Service providers also rave about how easy the site makes communicating with potential customers. “I enjoyed the job as well as the site and it all worked out great,” said Mark.

Make a free visit to www.servicesagent.com today and find out how easy it is to find the help you’re looking for.

Fire Resistant Building Materials Company Reports Record Sales Volume

Fire Resistant Building Materials Company Reports Record Sales Volume And Record Q3 Revenue of $1,197,181 (US) Third Quarter Fiscal Year Shipments At All Time High

Watkins, MN; Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- Fire Resistant Building Materials Company Reports Record Sales Volume And Record Q3 Revenue of $1,197,181 (US) Third Quarter Fiscal Year Shipments At All Time High.


International Barrier Technology Inc. (“Barrier”) (IBTGF: OTCBB; IBH: TSXV), a manufacturer of proprietary fire resistant building materials, is pleased to report record sales volume for the period of January - March, 2005 of 1,361,100 square feet, a 19.4 percent increase over the same period the previous year and an “all time” record quarterly volume. Sales volume for the nine month period increased to 3,858,000 sq.ft. from 2,103,400 the previous year, an increase of 83 percent. The previous quarterly sales volume record was 1,290,600 sq.ft. for the quarter ending December 31, 2004.

Sales revenue was $1,197,181 (US), for the quarter (Q3 2005) and $3,299,944 (US) for the nine month period ending March 31, 2005. Last year sales for these periods were $997,801 and $1,853,628 respectfully. The new sales volumes represent percentage increases of 20.0 percent for the three month period and 78 percent for the six month period. Each of these figures marks another record for both third quarter and first nine month period sales.

“Barrier is extremely pleased with the strong start to calendar year 2005,” said Michael Huddy, Ph.D., International Barrier’s President and CEO. “The period of January through March is traditionally one of the slowest of the year. Our strong showing was more a reflection of increasing market share than it is a reflection of the building industry as a whole. We could not be more exited about the prospects for the improved efficiency and capacity being planned as a result of the new production line starting up later this year. Until that time, we will continue to press capacity limitations on the existing line and feed sales growth with existing technology.”

Mule-Hide and its distribution affiliate, ABC Supply, Inc., continue to aggressively promote UL-listed Class A and Class C roof deck assemblies and are systematically adding new manufacturing customers to the group of facilities currently utilizing the Blazeguard® based system. Mule-Hide and Barrier jointly participated in the annual Modular Builders Institute (MBI) convention and trade show held in Las Vegas, Nevada in March 2005. “The excitement for Mule- Hide’s FR Deck Panel System was palpable” observed Huddy. “I have great confidence that as the year progresses our rate of growth will continue. We are already beginning to test additional roof membranes in the quest to gain additional applications, market share, and to begin to add residential customer to the existing base of commercial users.”

Facility Maintenance & Contractors Turn “Green” with Non Slip Floor Coating

Arizona distributor Eco Safety Products providing “green” safety coating alternatives to help facilities and contractors increase safety, while reducing costly installation time.

Glendale, AZ (PRWEB) April 4, 2022 -- Installation of safety coatings are nothing new to facilities and contractors, but having a safety coating that meets all environmental standards, allows faster installations, and provides a durable non abrasive non slip surface, is. Facilities are increasingly adding non slip surfaces to a variety of substrates in areas where slip injuries are most likely to occur. Common surfaces are work areas, handicap ramps, entryways, loading docks, stairways, boat docks, vehicle steps-beds-ramps, machinery, service bays, and walking surfaces of all types.

Traditional non slip coatings contain flammable ingredients, strong odor, abrasive aggregate such as sand or aluminum oxide, and becomes brittle over time. The long limiting curing stages and lingering odor of each coat also add too the many lists of the challenges for the installer and end-user. To provide a better solution that overcomes these challenges, Eco-Safety Products has been successful in providing solutions for these specialty applications. “We are definitely seeing an increase of “green building” conscious applicators.” states John Bennett, President, Eco-Safety Products.

These innovative single component non slip coatings are made of cross-linked acrylic urethane co-polymer, making them extremely weather, wear, and impact resistant. They are available in 19 standard colors. Applications are unlimited from marine to commercial or industrial applications. They contain zero VOC’s, are non-flammable and virtually odorless providing safe application, transport and storage. These coatings may be roller, spray, or trowel applied. The inherent formulations of all coatings are chemical, abrasion, U.V., and wear resistant. They can be used on a variety of substrates such as concrete, metal, wood, and fiberglass. There are special formulations for aqueous or submerged applications, and a more flexible and pliable formulation for wood or fiberglass applications. Each product formulation is available with recycled rubber aggregate which provides a non abrasive, easy to clean non slip surface texture. These coatings are applied in two coats yielding a 40-50 dry mil. providing outstanding adhesion and durability. The dry time between coats is usually less than 60 minutes and light pedestrian use is typically available within 12 hours. A hard cure is within 24 hours.

As with any coating application, the proper surface preparation and primer coat are imperative for maximum performance. Special primers are available which increases adhesion while providing a sealer-primer function for concrete surfaces to help prevent moisture vapor impacts. “These coatings have been extremely versatile and effective. We continue to hear innovative solutions and application benefits from facilities and contractors across the country. Not to mention costs savings and convenience. We have yet to hear a single negative comment. Knock on wood.” adds John Bennett. For more information visit www.eco-safety.com

Westwind Launches Flights to Rocky Point

Phoenix Airline Receives ‘All Clear’ for Rocky Point Flights Inaugural Scheduled Service Departs April 1; Air Service Link to Support Rapid Real Estate Development in Mexico

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 3, 2022 -- After a year’s effort and with hearty encouragement from both sides of the border, Westwind Air Service has received the ‘all clear’ to initiate scheduled service into Mexico. Initial marketing plans will focus on the state of Sonora and will complement Westwind’s full slate of charter flights and tours into the Grand Canyon and Page markets. Flights commenced Friday April 1. All flights will depart from the City of Phoenix Deer Valley Airport (7th Avenue and Hiway 101). Concurrent with this exciting development, the company announced it now provides scheduled service into the Grand Canyon.

The booming oceanfront resort community of Rocky Point is targeted as Westwind’s initial fly-to market. The Cessna Grand Caravan is the vehicle of choice for the carrier. The Caravan holds nine passengers and Westwind will be offering round trip service from the Phoenix to Rocky Point for the value price of $279 round trip. The flight takes approximately an hour, provides customer convenience from ‘door to door’, avoids long lines at the airport and reduces the drive time from the Phoenix market..

Real estate development in Puerto Peñasco is at full tilt, with over $400 million in development investment in the ground and on the design boards. Projects range from complete master planned communities to single family homes, luxurious condos, condo hotels and full service luxury resorts, such as the Mayan Palace. In May, the much-anticipated Forrest Richardson-designed 18 hole golf course will open at Las Palomas, affording the vacationer/resident a familiar Arizona amenity – but with a landscape benefit provided by the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On February 18, Governor Eduardo Bours and cabinet welcomed representatives from Westwind to the state of Sonora, with a full contingent of tourism support resources. That visit was part of a larger economic development and tourism event which provided the ceremonial groundbreaking for the improvements to the existing airport. A new airport facility with capacity for jet traffic is currently being designed and should be open for operations in late 2007.

For more information on booking a flight to Rocky Point, please contact Westwind Air Service at 1-888-869-0866 or go to their website at: www.westwindairservice.com.

North Woods Timber Frames Inc. is a builder of handcrafted Timber Frame Homes and Additions that will offer inspiration and beauty for generations to come. Located north of Madison Wisconsin, providing complete general contracting services, including SIP installations, for WI, IL, and MI.

LaValle, WI (PRWEB) April 3, 2022 -- North Woods Timber Frames Inc. is owned and operated by Bill Spangler. The office and business is located in a model timber frame home in LaValle Wisconsin near the Wisconsin Dells.


This model is open, by appointment, for showing to anyone interested in viewing first hand the beauty and dramatic impression that a modern day timber frame home or addition can provide.

Timber Framing is the centuries old craft that has enjoyed a revival in fine homes across the country and more recently in the Midwest. The hand crafted timbers are connected using joinery called mortise and tenon. This joinery is permanently locked together using oak pegs which eliminates the need for glue or metal fasteners. The beauty and superior strength of these massive timbers enables homes to be constructed with towering ceilings and open floor plans that no conventional or log home can duplicate.

North Woods Timber Frames Inc. is an exclusive builder for Black River Timber Frames in the Midwest. The beautiful handcrafted joinery and timbers used in our frames are selected from northern Wisconsin white pine, noted for its strength, minimal shrinkage, value and most importantly beauty. Other wood species are also available.

Single Piece Bay Canopies Speed Site Work In Liverpool Housing Regeneration Project

The nationwide housing crisis and shortage of skilled site labour is forcing many builders to examine traditional construction methods. Key aims are to streamline site processes to reduce construction times, assure quality and achieve higher standards such as improved insulation and reduced maintenance. The use of one-piece canopies from Octaveward typifies the new approach.

(PRWEB) April 2, 2022 -- The nationwide housing crisis and shortage of skilled site labour is forcing many builders to examine traditional construction methods. Key aims are to streamline site processes to reduce construction times, assure quality and achieve higher standards such as improved insulation and reduced maintenance. The use of one-piece canopies from Octaveward typifies the new approach.

A project in Liverpool for Cobalt Housing shows what can be achieved. In a major initiative to upgrade post war housing, which is structurally sound, but in other respects run down, a programme of comprehensive refurbishment is underway. Most of the properties have ground floor bays with UPVC windows and bay roofs of timber, felt and Rosmary tile.

Octaveward canopies are single-piece GRP fabrications. Traditional in appearance, they match the Rosmary tiles closely, but provide a long-life zero maintenance solution that meets standards and is in keeping with the character of the property. They are fabricated off site in a quality assured certified environment and high levels of insulation are built in. A 15-year guarantee is given.

The single piece canopy can be installed in a matter of hours rather than days as required for conventional joinery, felt and tile constructions. In fact, over 40 properties per week are fitted with the new canopies. This allows other trades to access site more quickly so that the entire programme can proceed without any delay.

Octaveward can fabricate canopies to simulate most traditional roofing materials, including tile, slate and lead. "Even to a trained eye it is often difficult to spot the difference between our single piece GRP canopy and the traditional alternative. The big difference is the time saved, reduced dependence on skilled trades on site and the benefit of having buildings closed, secure and protected from the weather more quickly," explained Octaveward director Trevor Williams.

The current programme with Cobalt has been running for two years and over 1000 properties have been renovated. Capital projects manager, Nicola Smith commented, "We have a variety of objectives to meet. Refurbishment needs to be of high quality to meet current and projected standards and avoid future maintenance. We want to cause minimal disturbance to our tenants and we want to lift the appearance of the properties while retaining their essential character. Octaveward and the other team members have helped us achieve this."
