High-Tech Features to Help Sell a House or Find a new Home

The old lawn signs do not suffice anymore. Dynamic brochures, visualization maps, satellite overviews, advanced search filters, personal statistics… here are a few examples of a new breed of high-tech features offered by Cytadia to help sell a house or find a new home in a digital age.

Montreal, QC (PRWEB) June 30, 2021 -- In an era where more than 70% of all home buyers begin their search on the Internet, online tools helping home buyers and sellers connect are essential and Cytadia offers them for free.

On the one hand, sellers want to catch the viewers’ attention and to know if their ads can do so effectively. On the other hand, buyers must sift through vast amounts of data to isolate interesting real estate listings. Cytadia provides high-tech solutions to all these needs.

For home sellers, Cytadia offers ads with virtually unlimited text and pictures thanks to a dedicated web server and a proprietary engine relying on PHP/MySQL technologies for automated listing and picture management. "From our experience, the time to sell a property seems directly proportional to the number of pictures included in an ad and the level of detail of its text description" mentioned Nicolas Plouznikoff, co-founder of Cytadia. Cytadia also enables sellers to access easy to understand personal statistics showing the effectiveness of their ads. Finally, sellers can generate printable PDF brochures on the fly and hand them out to prospective buyers visiting their property to help them remember it.

To help home buyers, Cytadia has enhanced its free community service by interfacing with other publicly available web services like Google Maps. Users can seamlessly switch between viewing all their search results in a list or on a Google Map on which color coded properties make it easier to find a home in a specific geographic area, or to survey a neighborhood using a satellite image. Moreover, thanks to custom advanced search filters, prospective buyers can gradually refine their search in either display mode.

"By constantly listening to its users and with its unique philosophy geared toward innovation, Cytadia is rapidly becoming a major player helping house sellers and buyers meet online" said Alexandre Plouznikoff, director of operations and co-founder of Cytadia. "Our sustained growth in the last 6 months is clearly a testimony to this fact". "Our goal is to continue to be on the leading edge of technological innovations while catering to homeowners looking to sell a house privately, with no commission and absolutely no hidden fees, or even to real estate agents looking to increase the exposure of their properties".

About Cytadia:
Founded by two computer engineering Ph.D. students, Cytadia is a leading free real estate community allowing 1) home sellers to place until sold real estate ads with virtually unlimited text and pictures; and 2) buyers to find a new home rapidly. With more than 2000 active listings in the United States and Canada combined and thousands of visitors daily, Cytadia helps numerous homeowners sell their properties for free each month.

Consumer Alert: Home Builders Create Mortgage Monopoly. Building Standards Also Questioned.

In order to increase profitability, many regional and most national home builders are now offering their own mortgage products. By offering "incentives," the unsuspecting new home owner gets lured into a trap where they actually think they are getting a good or fair deal on their mortgage. In reality they are not. These same builders frequently look the other way on non- english speaking, illegal workers being the core of the work force related to a substantial portion of residential contruction activities in many states.

(PRWEB) June 30, 2021 -- According to Thomas Martin, President of the National Mortgage Complaint Center, "millions of new home purchasers have been overcharged after they felt like they felt like they were forced into using the mortgage product of a regional or national home builder". According to Martin, "the reason most national and many regional home builders have become mortgage lenders can be summed up in two words....More Profits". Martin explained, "by offering "incentives" such as "bonus" construction features, or a portion of the closing costs to be paid, the home builder lures the unsuspecting new homeowner into a trap, where the home purchaser ends up with an interest rate/monthly mortgage payment that could be much higher than the best possible interest rate/mortgage payment available for their credit". "Or the potential new homeowner might get stuck with junk mortgage fees that even the most crooked mortgage lender would think twice about ever charging a consumer".

Martin says "what makes things worse, is that frequently these same builders have shell title or escrow firms that in no possible way can act as a disinterested third party with respect to closing, or the issuance of title insurance to the consumer". "By controlling the entire transaction there are little to no safety nets for the consumer, because the builder typically will say "take it or leave it," or "if you don't use our mortgage product the house costs $10,000 more".

What the new home owner does not understand is that by accepting the builders mortgage program in 90+% of the cases examined by The National Mortgage Complaint Center, the consumer never knew the builder was receiving an undisclosed kick-back called a "yield spread premium" for increasing the consumers interest rate/monthly mortgage payment. This is because the builder could/can hide behind a double standard (in federal banking laws & HUD's RESPA) that allows for banks or mortgage bankers to avoid disclosure of this kick back scheme also known as back loading or back ending the deal. As a result tens of millions of home owners are now paying a much higher monthly mortgage payment than anything close to what they deserved or could have received on the open market.

Martin said, "to make matters even worse from a consumer standpoint; much of the new home construction in the United States is the result of the toil of illegal aliens, who in many cases cannot understand or read English. In the states of California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Texas, Georgia, North & South Carolina, Florida and Colorado it appears like the majority of residential sub contractors use these types of workers." Martin went onto say; "this instantly calls into question; if the worker cannot read or understand the English language, how does he/she understand a set of blue-prints or the instructions of a construction manager, whose only language is English"? Martin concludes, "this could translate into construction defects on a scale this nation has never seen before."

Martin is also very concerned about the treatment of these illegal or undocumented construction workers in relation to forced overtime without extra compensation and or forced 6 day a week work schedules. Martin would like to know, "just exactly how do these workers get paid without a valid social security number in a post 9-11 world?" According to Martin, "the reason the regional or national home builder allows its sub contractors to use this type of labor force is simple .......cheap labor equals more profits for almost everyone." "The exceptions to profits for almost everyone could be the consumer, who paid too much for their mortgage product from the builder, the consumer who purchased a poorly built home and or the undocumented worker" who according to Martin " was either paid under the table (with no tax) or was over-worked and underpaid compared to US citizens performing the same type of construction tasks."

If you are a purchaser of a new home you should contact the National Mortgage Complaint Center at http://nationalmortgagecomplaintcenter.com/ for an inexpensive examination of your mortgage documents. The National Mortgage Complaint Center would also be very interested in learning about construction defects, leaking roofs, mold, failed windows, foundation cracks or any other problem involved in any new home, sub division or condominium nationwide. If you have information related to national or regional homebuilders using or allowing undocumented or illegal aliens to perform construction duties at residential subdivisions or developments of any type you should contact the National Mortgage Complaint Center immediately. If you are an employee or former employee of a regional or national home builder or an industry insider with specific information about wrong doing on the part of national or regional homebuilders you should report your information to The National Mortgage Complaint Center or its sister organization The Corporate Whistleblower Center at http://Americaswatchdog.Com/ immediately.

Wrecking Corporation of America Announces Completion of Old Washington DC Convention Center Demolition

Wrecking Corporation of America, the subcontractor for the December 18 implosion of the old Washington DC Convention Center, announced today that all work on the site has been completed. Wrecking Corp. started preparing for the implosion of the 800,000-square-foot building in October 2004, beginning with stripping the building of seats, architectural finishes and loose contents. The next step was one month of structural modifications to the structure itself to facilitate the implosion, a week to load the explosives, and 20 seconds to put the building on the ground. The 7:30 am implosion, which was watched by crowds of people standing outside the fenced area, was followed by six months of processing and debris removal.

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- Wrecking Corporation of America, the subcontractor for the December 18 implosion of the old Washington DC Convention Center, announced today that all work on the site has been completed.

Wrecking Corp. started preparing for the implosion of the 800,000-square-foot building in October 2004, beginning with stripping the building of seats, architectural finishes and loose contents. The next step was one month of structural modifications to the structure itself to facilitate the implosion, a week to load the explosives, and 20 seconds to put the building on the ground. The 7:30 am implosion, which was watched by crowds of people standing outside the fenced area, was followed by six months of processing and debris removal.

“The last step in the demolition process is the final grading, which was completed this month,” said Terry Anderson, EVP, Wrecking Corporation of America “One of the challenges we faced in completing this project was the removal of massive foundations that had to be reduced to an aggregate-sized product of four inches and less. This material was used for fill to provide the sub-grade of the new parking lot. To accomplish this we set up a crushing and screening plant on site to process the large quantity of concrete and masonry. For a couple of months we had the only crushing plant in downtown DC.”

The employees of Boston Properties, which occupies the 901 New York Avenue Building immediately north of the site, had a bird’s-eye view of the ongoing debris clean-up phase of the project. “We were amazed; it was a well organized and efficient site. It seemed that nothing went to waste,” said Jack Burkhart, Vice President of Land Development for Boston Properties.

“After it was all said and done, we recycled a little over 12,000 gross tons of steel, crushed 50,000 to 60,000 cubic yards of concrete and land filled only 350 dumpster loads of C&D; (construction and demolition) waste,” Anderson said.

About Wrecking Corporation of America
Wrecking Corporation of America took down its first downtown DC building 30 years ago. Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, Wrecking Corp. has worked on a number of high-profile projects downtown and in the surrounding metropolitan areas, including the George Washington Hospital and the Former Washington Convention Center.

Hurricane Season: Meet Hurricane Storm Boards and EnvironFoam Homes from Design Recycle Inc. (DRI)

DRI Hurricane Storm Boards and Shutters passed the impact tests imposed by the Florida High Hurricane Zone Building code. EnvironFoam Homes, DRI featured product at the MIT Enterprise Forum of Washington and Baltimore in March 2005, begin shipping free DVD Demo.

Upper Marlboro, MD (PRWEB) June 28, 2021 -- Like wine, Hurricane Storm Boards (HSB) and Hurricane Storm Shutters (HSS) age well. Unlike plywood, they last for 50 years. Unlike aluminum panels, they handle safely and cost much less. They can sustain repeated onslaughts of heavy rains and storms. They passed the Large Missile Impact Test and Cyclic Load Test conducted by Hurricane Test Lab and met the requirements of the Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zone Building code.

Made from recycled plastics, HSB and HSS replace plywood used in emergency board up on homes and commercial buildings. Hurricane Storm Boards come in four sizes; Hurricane Storm Shutters come in flat and curved panels, ready to protect your properties against estimated 35 hurricane days this year, versus average 24.5 hurricane days.

The Hurricane Storm Board structure led to the invention of EnvironFoam Homes, DRI featured product at the MIT Startup Lab presentation last March. DRI finalized the packaging of EnvironFoam Homes (EFH) and began distributing free DVD demos and taking orders.

EFH features include walls, floors, roofs of same plastic composite material, unit dimension 8’ x 8’ x 8’, fold like cardboard box, fit in a shipping container, weather proof, pest proof, shock absorbent, reusable, affordable, 20 years life, and three unskilled workers can set up one home in 90 minutes. See more at designrecycleinc.com/foamhome.html.

Unlike tents, EFH or Quick Buildings restore dignity to the homeless, victims of earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, fighting and fire. After surveying the South Asia areas affected by tsunamis last December, President Clinton commented "they (victims) cannot live in tents forever". EFH present a practical solution to tent relief. EFH, made from infestation-proof materials, can be used to store new tents, medicines, water and food, and fit in the business plan for disaster relief advocated by the Business Roundtable, an association of the chief executives of 160 U.S. corporations.

About Design Recycle Inc.
Design Recycle Inc specializes in the manufacturing of numerous "green products" made from recycled materials, including utility poles ("Thermo Poles"), landscape timber, playground surfaces, Hurricane Storm Boards, EnvironFoam Homes and various affordable housing systems.

DispatchThis.com Succeeds in Niche Construction Industry With Web-based Resource Management Solution

NOGU Technologies, Inc. has successfully launched a Web-based resource and customer management software called DispatchThis exclusively for concrete pumpers. With an estimated 90 percent of the U.S. concrete pumping market still running operations on paper, DispatchThis is positioned to positively change the way this growing industry conducts business.

Sacramento, Calif. (PRWEB) June 28, 2021 -- NOGU Technologies, Inc. has successfully launched a web-based resource and customer management software called DispatchThis exclusively for concrete pumpers. With an estimated 90 percent of the U.S. concrete pumping market still running operations on paper, DispatchThis is positioned to positively change the way this growing industry conducts business.

DispatchThis customers have been able to transition the management of their operations from paper to software. This move has resulted in fewer mistakes made and a more efficient staff. Automated features including e-mail receipts of orders received, and an early warning system for impending jobs that need to be fulfilled have improved relationships with customers by ensuring the completion of jobs in a timely, accurate fashion.

“It’s proven effective,” states DispatchThis co-founder Rahul Gupta. “Our largest customer threw away their old paper scheduling book during the first week of using DispatchThis, removing at least two extra steps in their order fulfillment process -- and they haven’t looked back.”

NOGU Technologies attributes the early success of DispatchThis to the Web-based nature of the product. DispatchThis is the first and only web-based software solution in the concrete pumping industry. Combining co-founder James R. Nolan’s industry experience with the benefits of Internet technology has proven a powerful combination.

“Our customer is the small-to-medium-sized business owner. By offering an affordable web-based solution, we remove the headache of running software in-house,” said Nolan. “We do all of the backups, server maintenance and software upgrades which allows more time for business owners to do what they do best—pump concrete.”

DispatchThis is offered to the concrete pumping industry for a low monthly fee starting at $225 per month. As an added benefit, all feature additions, version upgrades and customer support are included at no additional cost.

Though DispatchThis is a complete solution offering dispatch, contact and equipment management, the team at NOGU always has one eye set on the future. In the next six to twelve months they will be adding invoicing, GPS and hand-held components to the software, further streamlining operations and modernizing the industry.

NOGU Technologies, Inc. is a technology provider for the construction industry. Their first product, DispatchThis.com (http://www.dispatchthis.com), is a resource management solution for the concrete pumping industry. Their customers currently manage fleets ranging in size from 3 to 81.

At a VIP presentation held at Mariposa Restaurant in the Fashion Show Mall on Thursday June 23 2005, the developers announced Tower I is currently 80 percent sold out and Tower II will begin taking reservations in September, 2005. For business reasons, developers have decided to boost each tower by an additional 2 stories, adding 24 residential units to the existing 404 units per tower. Skeptics of Las Vegas high rise development will not have much to say after July 6th, 2005, when the Allure Highrise Condominium Towers breaks ground.

The Allure may suffer from a height inferiority complex when the neighboring Ivana High Rise Supertower, formerly known as The Summit Las Vegas, leaves a whopping 93 story footprint on a neighboring corner. The Ivana is borrowing the name of millionaire Ivana Trump and will be more than double the height of Allure. Many skeptics, however, debate if the Ivana Hirise will be able to secure the estimated $700 million USD needed to construct the megalith.

The Allure will be one of few vertical residential developments to actually be in some state of construction. Already completed are the Turnberry Towers Las Vegas and The District Lofts in Green Valley. Currently under construction are Panorama Towers, SOHO Lofts, Newport Lofts Las Vegas, Metropolis, Manhattan, and The Platinum.

New England Resort Becomes Second Shell Vacations Systems Franchisee

After a five-year search for the ideal New England timeshare property, Shell Vacations Club (SVC) has made a major commitment to the region with the affiliation of its second franchised vacation ownership resort. Shell Vacations Systems (SVS) second franchisees are Perry Williams and Paul Peck, developers of Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa located in the historic community of Francestown, New Hampshire.

Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) June 27, 2021 -- After a five-year search for the ideal New England timeshare property, Shell Vacations Club (SVC) has made a major commitment to the region with the affiliation of its second franchised vacation ownership resort. Shell Vacations Systems (SVS) second franchisees are Perry Williams and Paul Peck, developers of Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa.

Located in the historic community of Francestown, New Hampshire, the resort is set amidst 675 pristine wooded acres with rolling hills and abundant stone walls a semi-private 18-holegolf course and an adjacent ski and ride area. The golf course was originally developed in the 1920s by famous golf course architect Donald Ross and Williams and Peck saw a tremendous opportunity in the land, its in-place infrastructure and its close proximity to Boston. After new construction in excess of $10 million and further renovations, the resort will contain 112 units in 16 two-story buildings with a clubhouse and spa.

The new franchisees are also committed to expanding the Shell Vacations Club resort network. Their franchise agreement with SVS gives Peck and Williams an exclusive right to sell under the SVS banner in New England subject to increasing sales and developing additional resorts within the next two years. Already in active sales, Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa is scheduled to convert to sales of the Shell Vacations Club points in September. This aggressive schedule is made possible because Peck and Williams gain immediate access to Shell's tools, systems, and sales and marketing collaterals.

Says Sheldon Ginsburg, President and CEO, Shell Vacations LLC, "For some time, our Carriage Hills Resort in Canada has been our only property in the East. This affiliation is pivotal for us as it clearly demonstrates that we are not just a 'West Coast' company. With this franchise we have begun implementing our plan to weave a complete North American network and are now in talks with other East Coast developers. We also plan to expand our Club internationally through franchising, beginning with Canada and Mexico. Several current initiatives are moving us in that direction."

Adds Tracy Sherles, President of the points-based Shell Vacations Club and architect of Shell's franchising initiative, "This special opportunity at Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa fits perfectly with our strategic goal of creating a New England experience for our Shell Vacations Club members. Shell intends to blanket the region with a mix of resorts, activities and benefits available on the basis of points. We are already working on a myriad of special New England experiences that will be inviting to SVC members who are visiting the region, as well as to those who live there.

Jeffrey Server, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Development for Shell Vacations, applauded the commitment of these two developers to bring out the best of the property and fulfill its tremendous potential through renovation and rejuvenation.

"Clearly, Perry Williams and Paul Peck understand the importance of maintaining a traditional New England look and feel to the property. Their improvements to landscape, amenities, unit and design standards will place Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa squarely in the midst of other Shell Vacations Club resorts in terms of overall quality."

About the Developers
Williams and Peck are partners in two Maine properties: Rangeley Lake Resort, a timeshare in Rangeley and the Timbers at Sugarloaf/USA, a whole ownership luxury ski-in/ski-out condominium project in Carrabassett Valley both about 80% sold out. Williams runs the day-to-day operations of Rangeley Lake Resort while Peck runs the Timbers. Peck has been an attorney for nearly 20 years, concentrating in real estate, corporate, and commercial law with the 130-year old law firm of Drummond & Drummond in Portland, Maine.

Said Williams, "We put a great sales and marketing team in place at Rangeley Lake Resort and could see we would soon face the prospect of having nothing left for them to sell. We bought Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa and affiliated with RCI primarily to keep the team together. We had no future development plans after this resort and, frankly, the last thing on our mind was franchising with anybody. We really did not want to be 'corporate' and affiliated with a big brand, as we believe we are entrepreneurial in spirit."

"Then we learned about Shell's franchising program and felt it was the wave of the future because of the Club's usage flexibility," added Peck. "We also discovered that being entrepreneurial is what Shell is all about. At their core, they still like to make things happen just like we do. With the franchise, we'll still be running our own business - but with the benefits and credibility of a big company behind us. And of course, we're still a part of RCI."

What were their motivating factors in becoming a Shell Vacations System franchisee?

"We were looking for a knowledgeable partner to take our business to a higher level," said Paul Peck. "We realized we might spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and many years and still never get there by ourselves. We didn't want to wait to grow. Since Shell has been at it for 25 years, we knew being a franchisee would be the ideal process to get us where we want to go faster and more cost-effectively."

Explained Peck, "Being a Shell Vacations Systems franchisee will provide a better experience and result in a higher value for our customers' vacation dollars. Since Shell will frequently contact our owners to help them use the product, they will be happier and our portfolio will perform better. On the back end, being a franchisee will enable us to obtain better reporting and financial snapshots of our company. Using Shell's systems and the Shell Vacations Club makes it much easier to expand to new resorts throughout New England because we do not have to start from scratch."

Williams agreed. "Having gone from single site developer to two resorts, we could easily see the synergy in being affiliated with Shell's 21 other resorts. It's exciting for us to so clearly define our future path. Being a Shell franchise will enable us to keep our machine going for a long time. With the New England territory as our exclusive region, we plan to develop other resorts in the near future. Now there is no end in sight. Plus, it's great for employee morale. We look forward to using the Shell brand as we continue to recruit top flight sales and marketing personnel."

A New England native herself, Tracy Sherles has looked for an opportunity to help develop a vacation club in the region for the past 15 years and was thrilled to have the New Hampshire property under the SVS banner. SVS Vice President Joe Malone, born in New England and currently based there, has long felt that a points-based club in this region would help fulfill the dreams of many vacationers and make complete business sense for the organization.

Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa
The main house at the Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa (built in 1790) features an enormous fireplace in the tradition of that era and houses a restaurant, tavern, banquet facility, pro shop, and administrative offices. A documented ghost living in the basement adds to the ambiance.

"We intend this to be a family-friendly destination and ideal for family vacations," said Williams. "Francestown is the kind of place where you don't have to lock your doors. It's peaceful and relaxing; the historical surrounding area is the main attraction. Many of the homes were built in the 1700s, and one general store here has been open every day for the last 215 years."

Eleven million dollars has recently been spent at the Crotched Mountain Ski and Ride Area adjacent to the resort, which features downhill trails with all new lifts, as well as night skiing. Crotched Mountain Resort & Spa offers cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, tubing, ice skating and hiking trails in addition to championship golf and clubhouse amenities.

The first Shell Vacations Systems franchisee, Salado Creek Villas in San Antonio, was affiliated with SVS in March of this year.

Shell Vacations is one of the nation's largest independent vacation ownership developers, now operating 22 resorts in eight states and Canada along with various preview centers. The company has over 2,500 employees and a hospitality division serving close to 100,000 owners/members.

Wrecking Corporation of America Awarded Contract for Preparation of Second Liberty Center Site in Ballston

Wrecking Corporation of America, which has helped pave the way for the future of the DC area through numerous high-profile demolition projects, has been awarded a $5 million contract for demolition and excavation services at the Liberty Center site in Arlington’s Ballston area.

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 27, 2021 -- Wrecking Corporation of America, which has helped pave the way for the future of the DC area through numerous high-profile demolition projects, has been awarded a $5 million contract for demolition and excavation services at the Liberty Center site in Arlington’s Ballston area. The general contractor for the project is Clark Multi-Family Builders LLC, an affiliate of Maryland-based Clark Construction Group; the developer is Arlington-based Shooshan Company. Wrecking Corp. also handled the demolition and excavation of the site of the current One Liberty Center building.

Site preparation for the second Liberty Center project involves demolition of 700,000 square feet of existing building, including two 14-story towers and their foundations, plus a 3-level below-grade parking garage. The project requires processing and removal of concrete debris to be recycled; 8,000 cubic yards of it will be crushed and used on site as backfill. In addition, there are three phases of excavation, totaling 80,000 cubic yards of earth, to facilitate the construction of three new buildings.

“A demolition job of this size in an urban setting such as Ballston is always a challenge,” said Terry Anderson, Wrecking Corp. EVP, “and public safety is our priority when planning these kinds of projects. The towers will be demolished with a crane, which is a cost-effective methodology we have used through out the Metro area. When we performed the demolition of the tower on the first Liberty Center site a couple of years ago, we held extensive meetings with Arlington County and our client to coordinate traffic and pedestrian control, as well as work hours, to bring the project to fruition. Due to that planning and the support of the Arlington agencies, especially the police department, the building was razed safely with minimum impact to the surrounding community.

“In addition to the demolition on the second site, the excavation of about 80,000 cubic feet of earth requires a lot of planning to stage the necessary trucks and equipment without major traffic disruptions in the surrounding area. On the first Liberty Center project, we excavated close to 76,000 cubic yards and went down about 60 feet below street grade. There were times we were moving more than 200 loads a day off that site. In order to sustain that level of activity safely we employed numerous flagmen and personnel dedicated to traffic control.”

Demolition on the site, located at the intersection of Quincy Street and Wilson Boulevard, is scheduled to begin in July and is slated for completion by October 2005

Foxboro Launches Campaign to Find the Control Room in North America that’s Most in Need of a Makeover

The Foxboro Automation unit of Invensys Process Systems today announced a campaign to identify the control room in a North American process plant that is most in need of a complete design and equipment makeover. Invensys and partners will provide upgrades worth up to $350,000 in value.

(PRWEB) June 24, 2021 -- The Foxboro Automation unit of Invensys Process Systems has announced a campaign to identify the control room in a North American process plant that is most in need of a complete design and equipment makeover.

The winning company will receive a “TV-reality-show-inspired” makeover. This will include professional control room design by User Centered Design Services (a consulting company focused on effective control room design and operations); a conceptual design solution walkthrough video from Smith LaRock (a professional services firm that provides planning, architecture, and interior design services); a new operator console from Wright Line (a manufacturer of consoles, enclosures, and other furniture for technology-intensive environments); Foxboro workstation and monitor upgrades; plus appropriate Invensys engineering, alarm management, and training services, with a total estimated value of up to $350,000.

“The control room is the critical operations nerve center in a process plant,” said Paul Steinitz, marketing director at the Foxboro Automation unit of Invensys Process Systems. “Here, the operators routinely make decisions that impact plant safety, availability, and performance. With this in mind, it’s surprising how many control rooms are so obviously in need of an upgrade, either because the ergonomics are poor, the environment is not conducive to good decision-making, the control system is obsolete, the alarm sub-system needs to be rationalized, or a combination of these problems.

“While we’re certainly trying to have some fun by launching this TV-reality-show-inspired ‘makeover’ campaign, we also hope to draw attention to the above situation and encourage North America’s brownfield process plants to take the necessary steps to empower their operators by upgrading their control rooms.”

Potential candidates are encouraged to send photos of their control rooms, along with a control room description and their specific “makeover” goals and objectives to Foxboro, where an expert team of judges will choose the control room most in need of a functional and cosmetic upgrade.

For more information, or to submit an entry, readers should visit http://www.foxboro.com/crm2. Foxboro will announce the winner of the control room makeover at the 2005 ISA Show in Chicago, October 25-27, 2005.

Maria Shriver and Entertainment's Most Powerful Women Join Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity's All Women Build - 'Power Women, Power Tools' Set for June 25th

The 2nd annual Women Build 'Power Women, Power Tools' is an invitation-only event where Hollywood's top women will help build homes for seven Los Angeles area families currently living at poverty level.

(PRWEB) June 24, 2021 -- Hollywood for Habitat For Humanity (www.hollywoodforhabitat.com) announced today its second annual Women’s Build event. The ‘Power Women, Power Tools’ Build, featuring some of the most powerful women in the entertainment industry, will take place on June 25th from 9 am to 2 pm. The invitation-only event will kick off with a welcome address from HFHFH founder, Director/Screenwriter Randall Wallace (Braveheart, We Were Soldiers) and California First Lady, Maria Shriver.

HFHFH hopes the build will empower women to tackle the issue of poverty housing hands on and encourage others in Hollywood to come forth in support of future builds. The Power Women Host Committee this year includes Melanie Cook (Ziffren, Brittenham, Branca, Fischer, Gilbert-Lurie, Stiffleman & Cook), Nicole David (William Morris Agency), Barbara Dreyfus (United Talent Agency), Paige Hemmis (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Diane Nelson (Warner Bros. Entertainment), and Maria Shriver.

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity South Bay/Long Beach, the Host Committee, along with other top-level entertainment industry executives, will help build homes for seven Los Angeles area families currently living at poverty level. These families – the future homeowners - will be on hand to build side-by-side with volunteers as part of Habitat’s ‘sweat equity’ program. Each family selected must volunteer at least 500 hours of build time on their home as a down payment before paying back a no interest loan.

“The entertainment community has become a valuable partner in building awareness and raising funds to build homes so that these families can move out of the substandard conditions they are currently living in,” says Erin Rank, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity South Bay/Long Beach. “The Power Women, Power Tools Build demonstrates that women have the power to break stereotypes in all industries, and become a part of the solution to ending poverty housing in our community.”

“In this Power Women, Power Tools build, women who are blessed in status and career are reaching out to women who are rich in their love, courage, and determination to build a better life for their families. Both sides bring a blessing to each other, ” says HFHFH Founder Randall Wallace.

The event could not take place without support and donations by its sponsors. The state of California contributed $200,000 in Self–Help Technical Assistance funds to Habitat for Humanity to support the building of the sixteen-home site. The Ralph’s / Food 4 Less Foundation is sponsoring breakfast, Starbuck’s is supplying coffee, Chef Robert Catering will graciously provide lunch for all volunteers, and a Ben & Jerry’s truck will be on site to serve complimentary ice cream. Additionally, Warner Bros. has donated tote bags and t-shirts, and Paige Hemmis of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” has donated her signature pink Tuff Chix brand tool belts.

Launched in 2000 with a twenty-home “Blitz Build”, HFHFH involves the entertainment industry in raising money, publicity and volunteer support for Habitat for Humanity’s mission of eliminating poverty housing from the world and making decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. HFHFH has sponsored 150 homes around the world from Los Angeles to New York and Northern Ireland to South Africa.

Power Women, Power Tools is made possible by the efforts of its Host Committee and hundreds of volunteers throughout the year and takes place Saturday, June 25th beginning at 9 am at 22526 Halldale Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90501. The event will begin with a welcome address by Randall Wallace and Maria Shriver. Please visit www.hollywoodforhabitat.com for more information.

Commercial Real Estate Investment Bank Addresses Foreign Investment into U.S. Commercial Real Estate Assets

Commercial real estate lender, Pacific Security Capital, provides strategic insight into the considerations surrounding foreign commercial real estate investments of U.S. real estate assets.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com -- Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, provides strategic insight into the considerations surrounding foreign commercial real estate investments of U.S. real estate assets

Commercial real estate in the United States has historically been recognized as a favored asset class that has yielded steady appreciation without the fluctuations that are characteristically present in competing asset classes. This, in turn, has long made commercial real estate an attractive investment to foreign investors. The political and economic stability of the U.S., the absence or threat of government appropriation or nationalization, and the recognition of the historical strength of the US Dollar have no doubt also been contributing factors to the lure of foreign investors.

Having years of commercial real estate lending experience, Mike Myatt, the Executive Managing Director of commercial real estate investment bank Pacific Security Capital, provides insight that “given the attractive market characteristics described above, there has been a tendency for foreign investors to allow the sense of urgency surrounding the placement of funds. Thus, the desire to maintain competitive yields to drive their entry in to US commercial real estate markets.”

Myatt adds that “while resulting in great velocity with respect to time to market considerations, this scenario is regrettably akin to letting the tail wag the dog. If either ignored or misunderstood, navigating the complexities of international real estate finance with respect to the structuring of foreign investment into the US commercial real estate market can lead to a veritable plethora of increased costs and risks.”

Experience shows that a rush to place capital on the part of foreign investors will result in the selection of the wrong assets in the wrong markets and in a resultant sub-par investment performance. This scenario coupled with poor tax planning, insufficient infrastructure and the lack of a hedging strategy has caused many a horror story about what can happen to foreign investors with an ill-conceived investment strategy.

To maximize returns, create operational leverage and manage economic risk the foreign investor should assess the following items prior to expatriating capital into US investments:
- Financially engineer a business model that leverages the best of both foreign and domestic strategic tax planning;
- Assess the need for, and cost of currency hedging;
- Determine best practice methodology for accessing deal flow in alignment with investment strategies;
- Understand the increased costs and complexities of logistics and operations;
- Choose a business model that will lend itself to maximizing US capital markets access

About Pacific Security Capital
Pacific Security Capital is a leading commercial real estate investment banking firm providing commercial real estate loans, structured finance, investment sales and advisory services. The combination of direct lending, advisory, intermediary, corporate and professional services, syndication and acquisition services consistently allow PSC to rank among the leaders in the industry.

New Home Construction Boot Camp Seminars Offered by The Allen Mortgage & Real Estate Group and MW Johnson Construction - Helps Home Buyers Build for the First Time

The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group is working in conjunction with MW Johnson to Offer New Home Construction Boot Camp Seminars designed to ease the frustration of building for the first time.

St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- http://www.NewHomeBootCamp.com -- The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group, a leading Minnesota Mortgage Broker today announced that it is working with MW Johnson Construction, a local home builder, to offer New Home Construction Boot Camp Seminars designed to ease the frustration and anxiety of those building for the first time.

As home building becomes more complicated and expensive, more and more first time home builders are looking for educational instruction from many sources including parents, online venues and home building professionals.

“Witnessing the growing number of those building for the first time, who are also first time homebuyers, has been amazing to us,” said Cindy Allen, mortgage broker, Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group. “We began to realize that there is a clear need for home building education. This is why we are working in conjunction with MW Johnson Construction to offer the New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar.”

The New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar offers home buying tips such as what type of property tax benefits are offered to new builders, insight into custom design, how to understand the differences between warranties, what types of new building materials are trends and which are here to stay.

“What many new home builders do not realize is that they can accumulate equity during the building process,” said Melissa Johnson, New Home Consultant, MW Johnson Construction. “For this reason, we educate and offer examples during the boot camp about how seminar attendees can build equity for themselves.”

The New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar also offers answers to basic building information questions including:
- What qualities and credentials should I look for when choosing a builder?
- How should cost overruns be estimated?
- Should I believe the builder’s construction timeline?
- Does it cost more to build in the winter?
- What types of permits are necessary?
- What is the most effective way to communicate with a Job Superintendent?

Seminar attendees are raving about how the New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar has taught them to effectively build a new home.

“I learned that you don’t have to already own a home to be able to build a new one,” said Hildah Makori, New Home Construction Boot Camp attendee. “A first time homebuyer can afford to have one built too.”

“The Construction schedule sheet that explained the different phases of the construction process and how long each phase would take, was a very big help,” said Joshua Peterson, New Home Construction Boot Camp attendee.

Anyone interested in learning more about building a home can register to attend upcoming New Home Construction Boot Camps hosted in the following MN communities at www.NewHomeBootCamp.com:

Introducing Simple Guardian, the Simple Solution to Jobsite Theft

Our Simple Guardian Office Trailer Kit is the best professional quality wireless security system on the market and the only one specifically designed for the entire job site.

(PRWEB) June 22, 2021 -- Recent research has identified jobsite theft as a top concern for the construction industry, with losses of more than $1 billion in the United States each year. These losses are a result of a widespread lack of effective security solutions for jobsites and equipment located on the sites. Simple Guardian, an innovator in automated security notification services, today announced the debut of their JOB SITE KIT, its simple, portable, wireless alarm system that is designed specifically for the construction industry and uses patented wireless technology to monitor numerous pieces of equipment or areas simultaneously.

Simple Guardian features a base unit and four unique wireless sensors. It is a user-friendly self installed system that can be customized for different jobsites. Through the base unit, stationed in a jobsite trailer, the remote sensors can monitor key assets and areas on the jobsite. If an intruder tries to enter a secured area, disturb a piece of protected equipment, or remove materials from the site, the alarm activates and a notification is sent to the key holders.

Simplicity is the key to providing a useful solution in which anyone can manage the system. Simple Guardian gives construction managers and foreman an easy to use application to manage the system. Through Simpleguardian.com, changing access codes, notification lists or reviewing system reporting is a breeze.

"Simple Guardian understands the significant impact job site losses continuing to have on the construction community," commented John Kruger, President. “As we focus on simplicity of use, we maintained an eye on costs. Our JOB SITE KIT, wireless sensors and notification services are a fraction of the standard industry costs.”

While other security systems used on jobsites typically do not protect equipment outside of the trailer, Simple Guardian has pioneered a variety of unique add-on accessories. These accessories can be placed throughout the site, on job/gang tool boxes, materials, equipment, and inside the facility under construction to ensure that valuable tools and areas of the jobsite are protected.

Wireless sensors can be placed on equipment, tools, and locations throughout the construction site. For example, the Simple Cord, will protect equipment normally secured by a lock and chain. The Simple Board is specifically designed to be placed upon stackable materials, such as lumber, block, or brick. The Simple Sensor detects motion and is designed to be placed inside of the building under construction.

Simple Guardian Alarm kits are available at select industrial and specialty tool suppliers across the country, or directly from www.simpleguardian.com. The base system retails for $275, and the and the wireless sensors will range in price from $75 to $285. The notification service starts at $12.95 per month for a single location. Simple Guardian offers other kits for a range other applications such as; homes, small businesses, recreation property and farms.

Senior Living: Showering Seniors with Safety, Comfort and Style

Sunrise Senior Living and its architects have partnered with suppliers such as Best Bath Systems to provide residents with high-quality fiberglass showers that provide safety, comfort and residential styling

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- Life is golden for many seniors, but as they continue to age, the journey also tends to become more precarious – and dramatically more expensive – when injuries and resulting medical expenditures occur. A fall in the bathtub or shower in a senior living facility can result in trauma that add up to tens of thousands of dollars in unplanned expenses for seniors and their families, possibly resulting in painful therapies, increased fragility or permanent disabilities.

While showering in a tub is arguably inherently hazardous for anyone, shower stalls can be particularly troublesome for seniors. Moreover, the design of some fiberglass shower “units” can be aesthetically unpleasing and present installation complexities. Senior care and other lodging facilities must also meet building codes and disability act requirements.

“A critical aspect is the senior’s dignity,” says Gene Schoenfelder, VP Construction Management Sunrise Senior Living. “They need to get in and out of the shower safely. But if they don’t feel they need help, or use a walker or wheelchair, how do they get across an inch-and-a-half threshold?

“How do we provide for them to sit down or have privacy if they prefer not having a caregiver with them in the shower area? How do you handle the water controls and shower wands? All those factors go into the planning and implementation at our senior living facilities,” adds Schoenfelder.

Regardless of the level of care required, Sunrise insists that its facilities maintain a warm and friendly residential atmosphere, not an institutional one. To maximize success, Sunrise often partners with vendors such as Best Bath Systems (www.best-bath.com).

An innovative leader in adaptable access bathing products since 1972, Best Bath has worked with Sunrise and others on shower system and bathroom design that meets the requirements of seniors, acute care patients, residents in rehabilitation and those requiring “universal access” accommodations.

“We have worked closely with manufacturers in designing customized shower units for Sunrise,” says Timothy Danforth, AIA partner in charge of construction administration at BeeryRio Architecture + Interiors, the primary architect for Sunrise facilities in the U.S. “Best Bath has always been responsive.”

Best Bath collaborated with Sunrise and BeeryRio on a unique shower design that includes a low profile, collapsible, neoprene “water dam” at the base of the shower entry. The water dam is highly flexible, and gives way to wheelchairs, walkers or feet, and then reforms its original shape to prevent water from flowing out onto the bathroom floor.

Safety devices such as grab bars and handrails are also crucial components in senior facilities. In some cases, due to injuries or increasing frailty, safety bars must be added or relocated. Best Bath satisfies those needs by incorporating a heavy, 1/2-inch plywood backing into the walls of its shower enclosures for easy installation or relocation of grab bars that hold securely under lateral loads of 300 lbs.

“We always tell the builders to buy the best product for the senior living project. That is widely recognized as Best Bath, which is superior in material gauge thickness, design and plumbing preparation,” says Danforth.

New Affordable and Hassle-free Home Improvement Option Now Available to Homeowners

Interior Door Replacement Company Opens Its Doors in Burbank

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- Replacing interior doors once meant hiring three or four contractors, enduring a noisy mess, and paying handsomely for the privilege. Fortunately, times have changed. Today, Burbank-area homeowners can call one company, skip the disruptions and replace their old, ugly doors with custom interior doors for less than $130 each.

"This service has never before been available in the Burbank area," says Mark Neumann, owner of Interior Door Replacement Company (IDRC), which just opened at 2850 N. California St., Ste 110, in Burbank, "People are thrilled to find out how easy and inexpensive it is to replace their interior doors. Demand was already high before we opened our business."

When a customer hires IDRC to replace interior doors, Neumann says they will have new doors installed in five to seven days. Early in the week, a service team visits the home to measure existing door openings – noting gaps or spots that rub. They mark the old doors and take them back to the shop. There, they use proprietary tools to custom match, cut, sand and finish the new doors so that they fit correctly within the existing door jambs. Later in the week, the team returns to install the customized doors.

"Because most of the work is done off-site, there is no mess left behind in the home," explained Neumann.

With an Internet tool, homeowners can even view the finished product before IDRC ever steps foot in their homes. An online gallery at www.interiordoor.com allows homeowners to create their own doors with custom hinges and handles, and receive free estimates.

Prices for IDRC's custom, raised-panel, interior doors begin at $129 installed. Homeowners can choose from a wide variety of custom hinges, handles and doors, including specialties such as mirrored wardrobe doors. Prices include painting, installation, clean-up and disposal of old materials. All jobs are covered by a limited customer satisfaction guarantee.

Neumann says, "Most local homeowners can replace all the interior doors in their home for around $1,000. You can't beat that price for a home makeover."

In addition to homeowners, Neumann plans to target real estate agents, construction contractors and anyone else seeking a practical way to increase a home's value.

About IDRC
Interior Door Replacement Company custom fits and installs new interior doors for as low as $129 per door. Since its inception in 1997, the national franchise has installed more than 100,000 interior doors in homes across America. Headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., IDRC has locations across California and in Colorado and Arizona. For more information about IDRC, visit the company's website at www.interiordoor.com.

Oil Tanks In The Basements Of Office and Apartment Buildings Can Be Ticking Time Bombs

Thousands of apartment and office buildings throughout the United States have old steel heating oil storage tanks in or below their basements or sub-basements. Many of these oil tanks were installed at the time the buildings were built in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's and they are much larger than doors, stairs and hallways connecting their location to the outside. With age these tanks can deteriorate and leak fuel oil into the ground. New technologies now make it easy and cost efficient to refurbish these tanks in place, saving thousands of dollars in replacement costs and virtually eliminating potential pollution problems.

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- The building manager showed his concern in the tone of his voice when he called. The 10,000 gallon heating oil tank in the basement of the Federal building his company managed for the GSA was emitting a strong odor of fuel oil throughout the building basement and some parts of the upper floors. The concern was that the tank, situated in a walled off area and installed when the building was built decades ago, may be leaking oil.

This call was one of hundreds of calls received yearly by AmTech Tank Lining and Tank Repair, a company that specializes in providing services to tank owners from coast to coast. Their customer list includes major oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Sunoco, Shell and Hess as well as national companies such as Procter and Gamble and Navistar.

Jeff Colner, VP of operations for AmTech, reports, “Many of these older fuel oil tanks are partially or fully buried or sealed and releases of oil can’t be detected by odor. Many times it’s not until ground contamination is discovered or a minor permeation grows into a major leak, that the problem is detected.”

Colner continued, "Most of these oil tanks were installed at the time the buildings were built in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's and they are much larger than doors, stairs and hallways connecting their location to the outside, making it almost impossible to remove and replace them intact. With age these tanks can prevent serious problems. New technologies now make it easy and cost efficient to refurbish these tanks in place, saving thousands of dollars in replacement costs and virtually eliminating potential pollution problems.”

Colner is a veteran with steel tanks and their problems. Amtech Tank Lining and Tank Repair deals with the problems inherent to older gasoline, fuel oil and chemical storage tanks. With state of the art equipment and materials, he and his associates go right inside steel tanks, abrasive blasting, repairing and then virtually making a fiberglass and plastic tank on the interior of the older steel tank.

He added, “Corrosion is a funny animal, and the overall structural integrity of most of the steel tanks we examine is almost as good as the day it was installed. The problems come from isolated corrosion cells making minute permeations through the steel shell of the tank. Allowed to grow, these corrosion permeations can go from a minor weeping to a quarter inch hole if not addressed. A lot of oil can escape from a small hole, and it doesn’t take a tanker load to cause a pollution problem.”

Colner explained, “The refurbishing is sort of like a tank in a tank approach. The fiberglass and plastic lining we fabricate inside the steel tank adds an additional structural wall and is not subject to corrosion. The abrasive blasting process conditions the interior steel tank wall before we add the fiberglass and plastic. This helps guard against future internal corrosion problems.”

When asked about what the long-term effect of a leaking tank and the environmental cleanup process, he responded, “We don’t do environmental studies or cleanups, so I wouldn’t comment about that. It’s our job to find minor problems, or situations before they become problems, and remedy them, before you get to the point of needing environmental services.” He continued, “What we do isn’t rocket science, it’s just good, sound engineering process.”

AmTech Tank Lining and Tank Repair operates across the country, and is a member of the Armor Shield Lining network of a dozen nationwide applicator locations. The network has lined and repaired over 100,000 tanks since 1967. Call the AmTech Hotline at (888) 839-0373 for immediate information or visit the Amtech Tank Lining website at www.amtechtanklining.com.

California Inventor Winner of Two “International Gold Medal” Awards at “Inpex 2005 Invention Show” for the Eco-Mode Toilet

ECO-MODE Invention Company announces that Jorge Artola, from Stockton, CA, was awarded the prestigious “International Gold Medal” for the ECO-MODE in two categories. The ECO-MODE is a toilet that is environmentally friendly. This patented invention was exhibited at INPEX in June 2005, in Pittsburgh.

STOCKTON, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- ECO-MODE Invention Company announces that Jorge Artola, from Stockton, CA, was awarded the prestigious “International Gold Medal” for the ECO-MODE in two categories. The ECO-MODE is a toilet that is environmentally friendly. This patented invention was exhibited at INPEX in June 2005, in Pittsburgh.

The "Eco-Mode" is an odorless, environmentally friendly toilet that could help conserve water. The invention operates without a tank and it will replace any standard toilet, according to the inventor. The Eco-Mode would also feature a clog-free design, so it is maintenance free. The invention also can be manufactured at a lower cost because of these design features.

Artola won the “international Gold Medal” in the “Bath/Plumbing” category and also won the “International Gold Medal” in the “Environmental Category” at the 2005 INPEX.

“I received very good feedback from attendees,” said Bernard Artola of ECO-MODE. Artola was also interviewed by “The Tonight Show” and “Voice of America” media who were impressed when he demonstrated flushing a "official" baseball using only ½ gallon of water.

The Eco-Mode would be a replacement to a standard toilet with no retrofit needed. The odorless toilet includes a built-in “quiet” exhaust fan to extract the odor thru the existing vent pipe. The invention uses a gravity discharge container that catches the waste, uses a pressure-assisted jet rinse, and sends it through the piping. This could help eliminate water waste, as water would only be used to clean the bowl and supply water for the next flush. The water use of the Eco-Mode would be about ½ gallon (2 liters) per flush with variable user selected settings.

The TDOC System Free Copy of Market Leading Document Control Software for the Construction Sector

A free trial of TDOC - market leading document control software for construction engineering management

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- An evaluation version of TDOC, the market-leading technical document administration for the construction and engineering sectors, is being made available free of charge by the developers.

Three months support is offered free of charge during the evaluation period. The evaluation is limited to 100 records of information in any table.

TDOC is a Project Management tool for managing both documents and processes for Construction Engineering Management Document Control. It is suitable for both small jobs, and complex major projects typically with a high electrical and mechanical content & complexity such as hospitals, airports, etc.

CEMDC (Construction Engineering Management Document Control) has a number of well defined processes for the contractual transmission of technical documentation such as drawings, specifications, manuals and so forth; for raising, circulating, and responding to Requests for Information (or Technical Queries); and for scheduling the provision of information between the contracting parties (SDRS or VDRL).

The mass of associated general correspondence, often on forms, is managed, as well as the following specific documents: contemporaneous notes, time sheets, snagging (Inspection), minutes of meetings, daily record diary and event lists.

TDOC has and is being used in a number of market sectors including water and sewerage, rail infrastructure, hospital construction, airport construction, construction and management of head office buildings, oil industry fabrication (both rigs and plants) and chemical and process plants and MOD(N) infrastructure development.

TDOC handles paper as well as electronic documents as the complex technical document approval procedures involved in major construction projects are often best accomplished on hard copy.

When it is necessary to generate a document (such as a transmittal note covering the contractual movement of technical documents) then this is done directly from information held in the database, thus massively reducing clerical effort, and ensuring absolute integrity. The resulting document is available in paper or electronic formats.

Communication by EDI is a key part of TDOC. The TDOC standard is the only one available for transmission of Technical Documents: the TDOC RFI standard was adopted by the CITE.

TDOC also enables Electronic Communication with third parties who do NOT have a formal system but who do have email. This has been enabled using HTML forms which generate both an EDI response and a copy email back to the responder ensuring the responders records remain intact.

The TDOC System was first sold to Amerada Hess for the Scott Project in Aberdeen, following a visit to the firm who were responsible for the electrical design and whose project management activities were outsourced to a firm of consultants who had developed it for the management and preparation of contract claims.

Following its success on this project which saw major bespoke developments which later turned into the SDRS, several major contractors and managers purchased TDOC for their North Sea Oil activities.

The TDOC System has been sold to over 150 companies who not only take document control seriously but also understand that mass market products (however configured) cannot provide an adequate let alone a cost effective solution.

TDOC's users range from major property owners and managers such as Standard Life, to well known project managers such as Heery International, to major contractors such as Balfour Beatty, to major designers such as Teknica, to smaller specialist firms like RSP Consulting Engineers, to major operators such as the ONYX group who design, develop, and operate waste disposal plants.

There is no "typical size of company." TDOC's users range from small firms of consulting engineers with just twenty staff to large ones with hundreds of engineers and draftsmen and a dedicated document control team.

Nor is there a typical size of project: The largest project undertaken to date had a build value in excess of £Stg 500 Million, a team of several document controllers with the reprographics on site, and hundreds of peopleable to make their own enquiries and generate reports. On the other hand small firms of general contractors use it for every contract which can range from as low as £100 thousand to several million.

"Many construction companies have tried to develop their own in-house solutions to technical document management using FoxPro, dBase or Access. In 99% of cases the systems have failed to deliver what is required. Attempts to adapt off-the-shelf packages have also failed miserably," said Richard Townsend-Rose, director, TDOC Projects Limited. "TDOC is the only system which has been developed from scratch to meet the needs of document control and management within the construction and engineering sectors. That is why we are offering this free evaluation copy to let users experience the benefits for themselves."

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning with Light Reduces Costs

The innovative laser cleaning systems produced by Cleanlaser Systems from Germany, come to the UK. Used throughout the world for industrial and restoration cleaning, the equipment offers power and versatility, uses no water or chemicals and has the lowest cleaning running costs.

(PRWEB) June 17, 2021 -- CIProcess Ltd, the UK-based, innovative Cleaning and Process Systems company, announces that it is the exclusive distributor in the United Kingdom of laser cleaning systems produced by Clean Laser Systems in Aachen, Germany.

Developed over the last 10 years, the innovative laser cleaning systems combine power and versatility, with the lowest operating cost of all industrial cleaning methods. They offer a safe cleaning method and are environmentally friendly, using no water or chemicals and producing no effluent.

Primarily used for industrial cleaning and surface treatment, renovation and paint removal applications they also remove contaminants, production residue and coatings without damaging the substrate. Metallic and reflective surfaces are ideal although other substrates can be addressed.

Operating costs are reduced, through downtime minimization, low running costs and life span extension, with ROI paybacks of fewer than 12 months often achieved. They are easy to automate and can be integrated into existing manufacturing lines, to be used on-line and in-place without damaging equipment or requiring machine dismantling.

In use with leading companies and governments throughout the world, there are over 65 Cleanlaser systems in operation. Standard units are available in 120-W and 500-W versions, in portable or stationary versions, and special designs are also available.

Dave Adams, the technical director of CIProcess, reports "Laser cleaning is a precise, cost-effective method for cleaning when traditional methods fall short. Cleaning lasers are adept at removing additives, colorants, grease, rust, and other contaminants, while also minimizing abrasion and heat build-up.”

The Nd:YAG pulsed, solid-state lasers direct a high precision programmable scanning beam of up to 0.5mm diameter. The cleaning surface reflects laser energy and is minimally affected, however, any contaminants on the surface absorb the laser energy and are quickly vaporized, with any fumes or particulates removed by an in-built filter.

The cleaning stops when the contaminant is consumed, and consequently there is a minimal heat build-up, avoiding the microscopic roughening and cracking of metal surfaces that can be present when using traditional cleaning methods.

Cleanlaser systems are currently in use in the automobile, aerospace, bakery, food, electronics, restoration and other industries. New applications are constantly emerging and clients are invited to discuss their applications and submit their products and processes for testing in Cleanlaser’s laboratories.

The Cleanlaser systems are part of CIProcess’s extensive range of innovative cleaning and processing equipment including CIP/COP systems, innovative blast cleaning systems, skids, electrical and hygienic installations.

- The hand dryer, which uses 80% less energy and dries hands three times faster than traditional dryers is now available in a graphite finish; modern-looking texture doesn’t show fingerprints-

East Longmeadow, MA (PRWEB) June 18, 2021 -- Excel Dryer, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of American-made hand dryers, has introduced a new graphite finished cover to its line of XLERATOR® hand dryers. The new, modern-looking textured finish helps to further cut back on time associated with restroom maintenance. “In addition to drying hands three times faster and using 80% less energy than traditional hand dryers, the new graphite finish helps to minimize the appearance of fingerprints and particles on the dryer,” says Denis Gagnon, president, Excel Dryer. The new cover, recently launched at an industry trade show, has already drawn attention from architects and specifiers. According to Gagnon, the company recently shipped an estimated 400 dryers for installation in England’s new Wembely Stadium, which is slated to open in early 2006.

“The new graphite version will continue to deliver the fast results that patrons have come to expect, while providing additional convenience and time savings for building and facilities managers,” adds Gagnon. XLERATOR delivers a 90% cost savings when compared to paper towels and is the first hand dryer to achieve GreenSpec® approval. It also qualifies for LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and LEED-EB™ credits by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Currently, XLERATOR is installed in a variety of facilities, including high-profile destinations such as Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park and Westminster Abbey.

(PRWEB) June 20, 2021 -- The Appliance Slide received a U.S. Patent in late 2004 and has caught on like wild fire in the new home market along with the home improvement market. The inventor and U.S. Patent holder for this product is named Mike Coleman which resides Concord, North Carolina.

The Appliance Slide was designed to allow a single person, reguardless of their size and strenght to move a standard 27" wide washing machine or dryer for the purpose of cleaning under and behind the unit. Another great accomplishment with this product is the ability to retrieve items dropped behind the units with ease. The appliance glides on a special tracking system and does not allow the unit to come in contact with the floor. No contact means expensive floor repairs and replacement is no longer a worry. Early detection of water leaks, blackmold, mildew, dust mites, fungis and other problems can be easily corrected before health problems and other complications arise.

Mr. Coleman has been approached by several manufactures and other investors concerning the exclusive rights to manufacture The Appliance Slide or sell the patent out right. Please visit us at Applianceslide.com

Home Extensions Move into Fast, Sustainable Modern Methods of Construction

National Timber Frame firm Benfield ATT today announced its partnership with London-based Express Extensions (EX2) to create single-storey custom-designed home extensions for occupiers of homes where traditional brick construction would not be feasible.

(PRWEB) June 19, 2021 -- The movement towards using engineered timber frame panel construction for home extensions in the South East of England has been supported by some of the UK’s most prestigious organisations, including the UK’s largest timber promotional campaign, wood. for good.

Charles Trevor, Managing Director, wood. for good commented “Timber frame construction not only helps to promote sustainable development but also promotes good supply chain management and innovative construction techniques such as EX2’s system. It is not surprising that timber frame is strengthening its position in the market and is also helping the UK government to deliver on its promises under the Kyoyo Protocol to reduce CO² emissions by 20% by the year 2010. Using timber frame for small scale home extensions such as these is good for the environment - not least because a timber frame building contains almost twice as much timber as other housebuilding methods.”

Express Extensions - which is now in its second successful year – works with the homeowner to add extra space to homes in densely populated areas of South London, North Kent and North Surrey. The home extension kits are delivered and erected in millimetre-precise timber frame panel and roof truss form and are then clad with tiles, bricks or render externally, and with plasterboard internally to match the existing property. The speed of build through the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) techniques allows more extensions to be built more quickly, and satisfies the growing demand for extensions in current market conditions to add extra space (and value) to urban and difficult-to-access properties.

Benfield ATT, who engineer and manufacture the structural system, are delighted with the uptake of EX2’s services. Managing Director Professor Michael Benfield commented “We have been using off-site manufacturing and MMC technologies for our Home Extension clients nationally for years. Knowing this, EX2 has developed a fast, exciting and very cost-effective approach to extending terraced properties or properties where access is difficult.”

EX2, which has just completed its third project in the borough of Southwark alone, is also pleased with the media coverage and with the level of interest it has received as a result. “EX2 are experienced consultants and design/builders and have a very good understanding of the planning system in the area. We know what can be achieved and the best ways of adding value to a property, and we pass this knowledge on to our clients,” commented Managing Director Christopher Smith. “We manage the project from design to build completion for a fixed price - simple or complex - so the customers know exactly what they’re getting, with no nasty surprises at the end of the build”.

The two companies will continue working together to develop the low-cost single-storey extension market in South London, North Kent and North Surrey.

American Solid Surface Kits offers the Avonite countertops in seven colors with current pricing starting at $19.95 per sq. ft. or $50 per lineal ft. (without shipping cost). There are also over 200 colors ranging in price from $27 to $32 per sq. ft.

Solid surface materials are not sold to the public without professional installation. Costs start from $150 per lineal ft. to $220 per lineal ft. on name brand products.

The industry has promoted the idea that countertops are too difficult for non-professionals, and therefore need a 10-year installed warranty. This keeps the cost up, and furthermore is a false statement.

For 22 months Solid-Surface-Kits.Com has sold these kits to homeowners to self install. In that 22-month period these homeowners have had no failures, thus proving that a homeowner provided with the proper installation methods can successfully accomplish the installation without paying two or three times the cost for these tops.

Since 1988 training and certification in the solid surface industry was enacted. And almost all installation failures have since then been eliminated by using proper installation methods. The industry is a known science at this point.

American Solid Surface Kits uses the science of these methods in teaching only the installation part of solid surface. The kits are custom built for each kitchen and packaged and shipped directly to a consumer's door.

American Solid Surface Inc. was founded by two local business persons, Dewayne Michaels and Richard Morin.

Internationally Renowned Inventors Keynote Speakers for Energy Conferences in US

Dr. Danny Stefanini, Savastat SC HydoPath technology inventor, and Andrew Bowley, inventor of Savastat Boiler Load Compensation Controls traveled to the US as guests of Savastat-USA. They were keynote speakers at three conferences, including the 2005 Annual Conference of the Kentucky Association of Physical Plant Administrators (KAPPA) held at Kentucky State University in Frankfort, Kentucky, June 8-10, 2005. The conference themes included, “The Environment, Energy Efficiency and Our Budgets” with solutions available with the Savastat boiler controls and physical water treatment product lines.

(PRWEB) June 16, 2021 -- Dr. Danny Stefanini, Savastat SC HydoPath technology inventor, and Andrew Bowley, inventor of Savastat Boiler Load Compensation Controls and founder of Fuel Economy Limited, traveled to the US as guests of Savastat-USA. They were keynote speakers at three conferences, including the 2005 Annual Conference of the Kentucky Association of Physical Plant Administrators (KAPPA) held at Kentucky State University in Frankfort, Kentucky, June 8-10, 2005.

The 2005 Annual Conference of the Kentucky Association of Physical Plant Administrators (KAPPA) presented an informative slate of speakers that included Dr. Danny Stefanini and Andrew Bowley discussing “Boiler System Savings” available with the Savastat boiler and water treatment product line. Kentucky State University presented Certificates of Appreciation to the two distinguished speakers.

Additional program sessions and panel discussions focused on the KAPPA 2005 Conference theme, “The Environment, Energy Efficiency and Our Budgets.” Sessions covered topics of interest for all including Central Plant, Grounds, Housekeeping, Energy Savings Performance Contracts, Employee Relations and more. Attendees toured selected campus facilities and viewed vendor displays throughout the conference.

Savastat-USA and its authorized dealers sponsored two Energy Conferences, one in Columbia, South Carolina, on June 7, 2005, and one in Frankfort, Kentucky, on June 9, 2005. Attendees included federal and state government dignitaries, industry and education leaders from across US as well as state Department of Energy representatives.

While major US companies like General Electric introduce five-year plans to reduce greenhouse gases by 1%, the technologies developed by the two specialists from the United Kingdom are creating typical energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions of 15-25% annually. Dr. Danny Stefanini and Andrew Bowley the developers of the Savastat product line have achieved over 350,000 successful installations worldwide. These installations reduce energy consumption, eliminate lime scale and bacteria in water systems without using chemicals, reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment life. Recently, Savastat-USA received South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control approval for use of the Savastat-SCP unit in public swimming pools throughout the state. These non-chemical water solutions reduce costly maintenance, provide greater safety and are now being introduced across the US by Savastat-USA.

According to Mary Ann Shatto, the President/CEO of Savastat-USA, Inc., commercial and government agencies are becoming aware of the many benefits and savings being provided by Savastat equipment, largely because of conferences like the ones sponsored last week. Savastat-USA is a business partner with the US Department of Energy’s Rebuild America and Energy Smart Schools programs as well as an Energy Star Business Partner.

The three conferences provided Savastat-USA the opportunity to bring Dr. Danny Stefanini and Andrew Bowley to the US to discuss in detail how their emerging technologies provide major industry solutions. For instance, the Savastat-SCP commercial water treatment technology physically treats water by eliminating hazardous bacteria and algae without the use of harmful chemicals. This technology has important applications for water parks, public pools, and health care facilities that face the hazards of spreading water-born diseases. Savastat-USA and its authorized dealers provide healthier pools, spas and recreation.

The Savastat-LC and Savastat-HW technology, invented and discussed by Andrew Bowley, are intelligent next generation controls for boilers and direct fired hot water heaters that provide a historical average of 15-25% energy savings and reduce greenhouse gases by the same amount.

Additional technology applications discussed by Dr. Danny Stefanini were how Savastat SC with HydroPath technology marketed in the US by Savastat-USA eliminates and prevents lime scale without the use of hazardous chemicals in chillers, cooling towers, steam boilers, heat exchangers and other applications which have met with rave reviews in the US. The technology, with well over 300,000 installations worldwide, has a 100% “fit for purpose” success rate.

Many satisfied Savastat-USA customers who have achieved impressive results with Savastat products came to the conferences and shared their success stories impromptu with conference attendees.

New Career Skills Sparks A Career Change--Train To Be An Electrician

New Career Skills the nationwide provider of training in plumbing, carpentry and electrics for mature career changers, has launched a new, flexible learning electrician course to address the shortage issue. The electrician training course enables men and women of any age to re-train and change career with ease.

(PRWEB) June 16, 2021 -- By 2008 Great Britain will be short of 36,700 electricians unless 7,340 electricians join the profession every year.*

Reasons for shortages include limited capacity within colleges to address the problem and oversubscription on courses. With new building regulation, Part P introduced in January 2005, the demand for skilled electricians is sure to increase further.

Aiming to reduce injuries and accidents in the home, Part P stipulates any significant electrical work in a household must be carried out by a qualified and registered electrician. If a householder does decide to do the work, it will have to be checked by local authority building inspectors who will charge for doing so.

New Career Skills the nationwide provider of training in plumbing, carpentry and electrics for mature career changers, has launched a new, flexible learning electrician course to address the shortage issue. The electrician training course (http://www.electricianscareer.co.uk) enables men and women of any age to change career with ease.

New Career Skills offer a flexible, blended learning program that allows students to complete the theory part of their training at home using interactive materials and tutor support. Then, when ready, students can complete practical sessions at one of New Career Skills’ nationwide centers of Electrical Excellence. This training program provides a stepping stone to achieving an NVQ 3.

As well as offering a complete change in lifestyle, electricians' hours of work are flexible suiting people with families and other commitments as opposed to the regimented 9am-5pm of office jobs.

Commenting, Tim Adderson, managing director, New Career Skills, said: "The UK shortage of electricians is a huge problem affecting us all. Younger students aren't as enthusiastic about learning a trade and are more interested in entering office-based careers or studying for vocational degrees. The introduction of building regulations such as Part P should also have an affect on the demand for skilled electricians.

We have answered the needs of both the industry and mature career changers, many who have work and family commitments and can't afford to take weeks off work to train."

“Fire Your Yellow Page Rep” - Summer Tour Launched By Big Time Inc.

HVAC Marketing On Steroids. This day covers how to become a legend in your local market and create customers for life. It will help contractors to increase sales and stop wasted marketing money. All in one action packed day.

Lindenhurst, IL (PRWEB) June 16, 2021 -- Have you ever seen a heating, air conditioning or plumbing company so famous in its local market that they don’t need to advertise in the yellow pages, newspapers, or other traditional marketing methods and yet customers are magnetically drawn to them? This is subject of a summer tour being held by Joe Crisara at Big Time Business Development in 28 cities across The United States. The classes are being held at many of the conveniently located Johnstone Supply stores throughout the nation and begin July 25, 2021 and run thru September 2, 2005.

“I felt obligated to my clients to develop this grass roots marketing program,” said Crisara. “I receive telephone calls everyday from contractors around the country who tell me that they are spending as much at 25% of their budget for the year on yellow pages.” said Crisara, who is a partner in a HVAC business consulting firm called Big Time, Inc. and has personally helped over 200 contractors wanting to find a better way with his published book, Finding Gold in Something Old-The Story Of The Oldest Furnace Contest. “When I first started hearing how the yellow page directories are taking advantage of contractors, both big and small, I would get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Then I started to get mad. And then I decided that I could do something about this by showing contractors there is another way.”

It starts out with his book, Finding Gold in Something Old-The Story Of The Oldest Furnace Contest, which shows contractors how to run a successful oldest furnace contest, (or oldest A/C, boiler, or water heater). But that is only 1 of the 4 programs he goes over during this 3 hour, edge of your seat program. Joe will also be going over “Fire Your Yellow Page Rep-How to minimize your HVAC/P business dependence on yellow page advertising,” “Instant Referrals-Generating a constant stream of new customers using proven referral systems that you can put on autopilot,” and “Raving Fans-The power of releasing customer testimonials in your marketing message.”

The class costs only $99.00 if you purchase the tickets before the Early Bird date of July 15th, 2005 and $149 after. Plus all participants will get a free HVAC Publicity Workbook, a free special report-Giving Your HVAC/P an Unfair Advantage, and “Instant PR” Press Release Builder Software.

Innovative Window Repairs are More Beneficial for School Facilities than Window Replacement…but Do Facilities Management Know this?

Some school buildings are so poorly maintained; nine out of ten times the problem is the windows. Replacing windows can be a costly measure and very few companies actually do the repair. Window Repair Systems has come up with an innovative product to repair the windows that improves the function, energy efficiency and safety, which in turn saves the school district money.

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) June 15, 2021 -- With school budgets being cut, improving efficiency in school facilities can still be done. “Its unbelievable how long schools let their windows become so dangerous and inefficient. The biggest problem I have found is that the maintenance departments have no idea what our products and services can do in the long run not only for the windows but for the staff, the children and the building as a whole”, commented Marketing Associate, Michael Fox. Window Repair Systems is dedicated to providing school districts with options for their problem windows. The most common problem is inoperable windows. The Turbo II balance kit is a retrofit that brings the windows back to life. After the process is complete, the windows operate better than before.

Another major problem is drafty windows and/or poor building envelope. The fact is that a 1/16th inch gap, or the thickness of a dime, around a window is roughly equal to holding a window open 3 inches. This may sound technical and extremely costly to fix, but its not. School facilities management needs to be in the “know” when it comes to maintenance of their windows. Simple cost analysis will show that WRS products and services can produce significant savings over a longer period of time than simply replacing windows that will need major maintenance in coming years. With this new retrofit, there can be 10-20% savings on energy. To school districts this can be a significant amount of money.

In 2004, a Florida school district called WRS because a child lost the tip of their finger by a falling or “guillotine” window. Since this was an emergency, WRS quickly assessed the problem and sent the district the proper hardware to fix their problem. There are hundreds of incidents each year of injuries caused by dangerous and neglected windows, and Florida is not the only state with these issues.

Safety is a big issue when you’re talking about children being around windows in a classroom. The “guillotine effect” is when a window is pushed up and falls down by its own force due to failing mechanisms in the window. Another problem is windows falling into the classroom. WRS incorporates their innovative, specifically manufactured, guides that keep the window in line and prevents the disaster of a window from falling into the classroom.

For more information and to receive a free catalog contact the regional sales rep or visit www.windowrepairsystems.com. WRS also schedules field visits to assess any window troubles.

About Window Repair Systems, Inc:
Window Repair Systems, Inc. has built a solid reputation by supplying high quality window hardware and being the leader in the window repair industries since 1989. Specialists at Window Repair Systems, Inc. have over 25 years in sales, service and product development experience. Our reputation has grown exponentially through the years spanning over 9,000 schools such as, Denver School District, New York City Public Schools, Miami Dade Public Schools and Los Angeles California Public Schools.

A leader in the window hardware industry, and also a leader in repair innovations. No other company can offer such high-end services, innovations and hardware. What separates WRS, Inc. from the others is reputation, loyalty and knowledge.

Saving the Planet? Savastat-USA Is Doing Its Part

One American company is on a mission to lessen the strain on US businesses from soaring energy costs. These costs are wreaking havoc with the budgets of non-profits and eating profits nationwide. Savastat-USA, led by CEO Mary Ann Shatto, is canvassing the country with technology new to the US market but applied successfully in many parts of the world for over a decade.

(PRWEB) June 15, 2021 -- One American company is on a mission to lessen the strain on US businesses from soaring energy costs. These costs are wreaking havoc with the budgets of non-profits and eating profits nationwide. Savastat-USA, led by CEO Mary Ann Shatto, is canvassing the country with technology new to the US market but applied successfully in many parts of the world for over a decade.

Savastat-USA is the US distributor for a line of products that reduces the consumption of natural gas, propane, and fuel oil used for heating by a minimum of 15% annually; saves over 20% on the costs of hot water heating, and those two product lines are just the tip of the iceberg. Savastat-USA also provides proven solutions for a water treatment industry that has been reeling from legislation in many communities and states that are banning water softeners and conditioners because of the negative impact on the environment.

When asked why her organization was so optimistic about its role in the market place, the CEO’s answer was simple, “Timing. Many sectors of the US market are suffering and searching for solutions that will not only save them money, which has a direct impact on their bottom line, but also offer environmental benefits like reducing co2 emissions as well.” She continued saying, ”When you can help an organization like the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice reduce its heating energy usage by 17.5% and also provide the added benefit of reducing co2 emissions, it gives everyone involved the feeling that they just helped save the planet.”

The commitment within the Savastat-USA organization is commendable and noticeable. From the corporate boardroom to regional management to the dealer network, this company is focused and motivated. “The goal is green,” Shatto states, “green meaning we know that the benefits of our technologies result in cleaner air and water, reduced dependency on foreign energy sources, and increasing the amount of money our clients can retain in their budgets. We work closely with branches of the US Department of Energy like Smart Energy Schools and Rebuild America because of our like-minded goals and direction. When a school district like Windsor Local Schools in Vermont is able to put over 15% of its heating budget back into its general fund as a direct result of lowering energy consumption with a return on investment well under 12 months and reallocate the money to books or learning programs – there is a deep sense of satisfaction in that.”

Savastat-USA currently offers three product lines: the Savastat LC Series for closed-loop hot water boiler systems; the Savastat HW Series for direct fired hot water heaters; and the Savastat SC Series for water treatment. The LC Series saves an average of 15% to 23% on boiler energy consumption. The HW Series for direct fire hot water heaters typically saves 20% of energy consumption on electric or gas hot water systems. The SC Series for the physical water treatment markets removes scale and prevents corrosion in steam boilers, humidifiers, chillers, cooling towers, heat exchangers and hot water systems. Recent research proves that it also kills bacteria. Over 300,000 units have been installed worldwide with a 100% success rate.

And the Savastat SC-P for the hot tub and commercial swimming pool market reduces chemical use by 70% and backwashing by 75% while removing bacteria and providing crystal clear water. These award-winning products have been used successfully overseas for years. They are distributed throughout the United States by the Savastat-USA Dealer Network and also by the Savastat-USA Sales Team.

When asked about skeptics and competition, Savastat-USA’s CEO replied that there truly isn’t any direct competition for these technologies. For example, the Savastat LC Series works with building management systems and other energy savings measures that may already be in place. Ms. Shatto explains, “Many of our clients are already using weather optimizers or advanced controls from companies like Siemens, JCI, or Honeywell and think that our product can’t help them, but when we show them the additional benefits of adding our product to compliment their current conservation strategy, then adding our products becomes an obvious means of increasing the bottom line.”

“When you look at the long list of notable businesses that use the Savastat technologies like Mercedes Benz, NASA, IBM, Nestles, or Lockheed Martin Space Operations, it is hard for skeptics to argue with success.” The Savastat-USA Chief Executive Officer smiled and said, “Now you know why we wake up every day feeling that we can help save the planet.”

South Plainfield, New Jersey, June 2005 – Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., (website: http://www.dallascontracting.com) a specialized contractor providing demolition, dismantlement, onsite concrete crushing, equipment salvage and scrap metal recycling to various industries, completed a 2,000-ton concrete aggregate crushing project in New Jersey.

(PRWEB) June 15, 2021 -- Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. was awarded a concrete aggregate crushing project that required the processing of nearly 2,000 tons of material in several days. The materials included masonry block, concrete sidewalk and asphalt from the parking lot. The client had a very aggressive schedule and needed to complete the project over a weekend.

To accomplish the project goals, Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. mobilized its portable concrete aggregate crushing equipment to the site. The equipment consisted of an Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. UltraMax 1000-15CV crushing plant with stacking conveyors and a wheel loader. An operator, a foreman and several laborers were used to run the equipment. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. was able to meet the project schedule and crushed nearly 2,000 tons of material within a 3 day timeframe. The project was completed without injury or incident which is part of Dallas Contracting’s commitment to safety.

The crushed materials were used by the client for onsite backfilling. This saved the client money by not having to import materials to the site and also by not having to send materials offsite for disposal or offsite recycling.

Paramount Disaster Recovery Roof Consultants Launches Three New Web Sites to Assist Homeowners with Roof Damage Insurance Claims, Including Calshake and Cemwood Roofs

Roof consultants can save homeowners and property owners hundreds of thousands of dollars. Paramount Disaster Recovery Inc. launches three new web sites to help property owners navigate the roof damage insurance claims process.

Palos Verdes, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2021 -- Now that the rainy season has ended many homeowners and building owners are looking to make roof repairs. Unfortunately most of them will end up paying far more for those repairs than they should because they don’t understand the roof damage insurance claim process. Homeowners can save themselves a great deal of money and countless headaches by using a roof consultant firm, such as Paramount Disaster Recovery Inc., to handle the entire roof damage insurance claim process.


Insurance companies are looking to limit or deny payout on roof damage claims. Many causes of roof damage, including foot traffic, high winds, and hail among others, are covered by most insurance policies. However, many of these legitimate claims are rejected or only partially paid for by the homeowner’s insurance company because of poor documentation or incomplete roof inspection. That is where a roof consultant can end up saving the homeowner hundreds of thousands of dollars in roof repair costs.

One recent Paramount client was initially awarded a $1500 claim to patch their roof that had been damaged by high winds. After Paramount had a chance to access the total damage it was discovered that the roof patch that the insurance company had recommended was an inadequate solution and had in fact led to mold growth within the structure.

The Paramount team of insurance claim consultants re-filed the claim documenting the original damage along with the additional mold damage and won a settlement of $380,000 for the client. This paid for the mold removal and a complete roof replacement. Without the help of Paramount’s roof consultants the client would have had to pay those costs completely out of his own pocket.

For a homeowner, commercial building owner, even Homeowners Associations the roof damage insurance claim process can be an overwhelming experience. In order to make the process easier Paramount is launching three new web sites, www.roof-damage.com, www.calshake.com, and www.cemwood.com. Roof consultants can save property owners hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless headaches. Now Paramount has made the process even easier with three new web sites designed to provide the information and resources needed to get your roof fixed right.

About Paramount Disaster Recovery Inc.:
Since 1989 Paramount Disaster Recovery has been helping individual homeowners, business owners, and homeowner associations (HOA) with their roof repair needs, including roof consultants, insurance claim consultants, and roofing contractors. Paramount is a proud member of the Building Owners & Managers Association International, the Community Associations Institute, and the National Institute of Disaster Restoration.

Not only do they arrive fully assembled on a flatbed trailer, but they also feature shiplap lodge-pole pine log-profile siding. Because of the linking shiplap construction of the logs, there is no need for annual chinking between log gaps.

According to Chernoff, Spirit Elements’ customers are able to personalize their Homesteader Cabins with many customized options. Delivered nationwide, these fully assembled cabins can arrive with a finished insulated interior, sleeping loft and electrical package to further accommodate the owner and bring comfort to these stylish structures. Decorative touches such as window boxes, an ornamental stone chimney, and a porch swing go hand-in-hand with practical touches such as additional windows, and the option of a 6’ double door on the cabin’s end.

Available in sizes ranging from 15’ x 16’ to 15’ by 30’, The Homesteader is custom made to order with 2”x 4” framing on 16” centers and a 5/8” plywood sub-floor and roof sheathing.

New Martinson-Nicholls Heated Anti-Fatigue Mat Provides Warmth & Economy

The heated, under desk floor mat provides warmth and anti-fatigue comfort in cold climates and winter months. Available with an anti-slip surface option, the foam and vinyl mat is both safer and more economical than a space heater.

(PRWEB) June 13, 2021 -- Martinson-Nicholls announces the introduction of Winter Warmth's low voltage, anti fatigue heated mat. This mat is ideal for under desks or to stand on for those who need heat and fatigue reduction. This low voltage mat consumes 1/3 the amount of electricity of the space heater creating a safer environment and more efficient radient heat.


The overall thickness of the Winter Warmth Mat is 1/2" consisting of 3/8" foam and a 1/8 vinyl finish. This mat reduces fatigue from either sitting or standing and has beveled edges on all four sides making it ideal for many applications.

The Winter Warmth Mat has a timer accessory that can be preset so the mat will turn on or off automatically creating a warm working environment before you even get to work. The timer also assures that never again will an owner or manager need to return to the office to make sure space heaters are turned off. Even should the Winter Warmth Mat be left on, the low voltage assures safety and lower energy costs.

The Winter Warmth Mat generates a radiant heat which creates an extremely comfortable even heat while reducing fatigue and stimulating circulation. It is ideal for people who spend long hours on their feet or in cold environments, including bank tellers, toll booth operators, machinists and any other users of space heaters. The vinyl mat includes an anti-slip option of a 3M™ Safety-Walk mineral-coated, slip-resistant surface.

Mary Davis, HT (ASCP) of the Cleveland Clinic stated, “After sitting for hours, I enjoy resting my feet on the Winter Warmth Mat. It is very relaxing on the feet and legs.”

There is a two year warranty/replacement policy. These mats will be available to the public in a 2' X 3' in September of 2005. Distributor inquiries are welcome.

"New Release- Sci-Fi Book, 'Unlimited Energy', Written for Women as Well as Men - in Time to Stimulate, G 8, Live 8, Discussions; Plus will Give a New Dimension to Renewable Energy Ideas"

'Unlimited Energy' is a multi-level predictive fiction set in 2022, that sets out to solve the looming energy and pollution crisis of the time. It uses cutting edge science to bring about realizable solutions. Mind Control, at a new level for those worried about Conspiracy theory and machines. Released in time for, live 8, G8, this will give impact to the discussions.

(PRWEB) June 11, 2021 -- In reading, ‘Unlimited Energy’ I first thought the book which was released today, June 1, was going to be just a frolic in the near future. It has turned out to be much more and has a depth, which, in view of the fact that it was written four years ago, will stagger many scientists and energy corporations. This is a positive example of. ‘How to Change the World’

‘Unlimited Energy’ explains many things in a simple manner and extraordinarily coincides with today’s revelation from the ‘Millennium Project’. eg. One page of the book describes the start of the universe in terms of dark matter, and super fluid vortices and gravitational containment effects in a way that is understandable.

Going even further is the effect of light on the Galaxy and the involvement of light and its shearing effect on the cosmos. The effects of capturing huge amounts of light in super fiber optics is said to produce inertia coils.

The main theme of 'Unlimited Energy' is to promote the use of non polluting renewable energy Two theories are played out throughout the book. First is the use of a two mile high tower. Second is the logic for, and production of a source of renewable energy, from countries with abundant sunlight. It can be safely carried in your pocket. The Author claims to have done the initial development work. This has only recently become practical because of the production of new photo-voltaic plastics.

The hero is teamed up with a multi-peta byte animate, beautiful of course, to solve problems caused by pollution and a serious lack of oil in 2022. There is also an in depth discussion throughout the book of the growth of artificially induced intelligence and it’s combination with human intelligence to produce something that will save mankind from the machines of the future. An insight into how consciousness develops is thought provoking.

Technical issues are easily understood and add credibility to the plot. ‘Unlimited Energy’ is written in a style that we associate with ‘Star Trek’ or ‘Farscape’. The reader will appreciate that this is a language that is universally understood and that the book is intended for all countries.

‘Unlimited Energy’ is a book that is written as much for women as for men, and sex scenes are tastefully described in a poetic way. This is an amazing romp, with a very serious message, through several countries including Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and USA.

Finally, for those who like the occasional moist eye or Socratic humor, this will be even more enjoyable.

Throughout July, Healthcare Facility Planning and Design Will Be Explored In A Series of Executive Education Seminars from Harvard Design School

Hospital administrators, physicians, architects, and facility managers are invited to participate in executive education seminars on healthcare planning and design.

(PRWEB) June 11, 2021 -- In July, Harvard Design School’s Office of Executive Education will offer six seminars that focus on the design and planning of healthcare facilities.


These seminars will enable hospital administrators, physicians, architects, and facility managers alike to gain new insights into the complexities of the master facility planning process while exploring emerging technologies and important healthcare issues and trends.

The seminars offered include:
- Service Line Planning: Taking the Guesswork Out of Healthcare Facility Master Planning, July 11
- Business Plan to Facility Plan: Operational Programming for Health Care Services, July 12
- Strategic Facility Master Planning: Balancing Competing Health Care Facility Choices, July 19
- Planning the Emergency Department of the Future, Part 1: July 19-20
- Planning the Emergency Department of the Future, Part 11: July 21-22
- Real Estate Development in Healthcare, July 20

Service Line Planning: Taking the Guesswork Out of Healthcare Facility Master Planning:
This seminar reviews the major trends shaping the future for our nation’s hospitals and illustrates why service line planning has become “required homework” for any health care facility’s master planning process. Participants will learn how to forge a link between a hospital’s strategic planning process and its facility master planning process and will gain an understanding of the basics of clinical service line planning and how it can be used to inform master facility planning and capital investment decision making.

Business Plan to Facility Plan: Operational Programming for Health Care Services:
Intended to introduce operational programming to hospital planners and architects, this seminar acquaints participants with the principles of operational programming, the process required to undertake such an effort successfully, and the statistical techniques available to translate a health care organization’s clinical service plans into future facility requirements. Participants learn how operational needs and parameters—such as service volumes, workflow, patient processing, and materials handling—affect the demands placed on the facility plan.

Strategic Facility Master Planning: Balancing Competing Health Care Facility Choices:
Whether the future includes renovation, new construction, reallocation, or relocation, the strategic facility master plan provides guidance for facility investments. This seminar explores the requirements of the master planning process, which include prioritizing facility choices, buy-in, a clear demand-based process, flexibility and adaptability, and well-defined deliverables and documentation.

Planning the Emergency Department of the Future, Part I and Part II:
This two-part, team-taught seminar introduces evidence-based concepts from architectural design, operational research, computer informatics, and medical science that allow participants to understand the full spectrum of issues confronting modern emergency department design. Part one is a two-day intermediate–advanced program that systematically explores the intersection of design and operations that lead to new emergency department layouts that operate better than traditional departments. The second two-day expert session focuses in detail on emerging factors that will shape the emergency department of the future. Participants may enroll in both or either session(s).

Real Estate Development in Healthcare:
Designed to explore the social and economic factors affecting the value of hospital properties and the relationships between these facilities and their physician groups, this seminar will integrate these dynamics with the growing trend of hospitals optimizing their real estate assets. Trends and factors in hospital mergers, consolidations, and acquisitions; real estate development models, considerations, and options for site development; campus and facility development methodologies and approaches; and projecting long- and short-term development needs are among the topics explored in this seminar.

All of Harvard Design School’s Executive Education Seminars are registered with the AIA (American Institute of Architects) Continuing Education System and earn AIA/CES units. Complete seminar and registration information can be found at www.gsd.harvard.edu/execed.

About the Office of Executive Education at Harvard Design School:

Size Matters With Nu-Heat Underfloor Heating

Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating is the only underfloor heating company to supply distributor-and-manifold architecture with 10mm tubing (Fastflo-10™) to the domestic underfloor heating market. We asked Andrew Grimsley, Technical Director of Nu-Heat to explain why Nu-Heat recommends this system.

(PRWEB) June 11, 2021 -- Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating is the only underfloor heating company to supply distributor-and-manifold architecture with 10mm tubing (Fastflo-10™) to the domestic underfloor heating market. We asked Andrew Grimsley, Technical Director of Nu-Heat to explain why Nu-Heat recommends this system.


Q. Why 10mm tubing?
We specialise in domestic underfloor heating and believe that the distributor-and-manifold design, combined with Fastflo-10™ results in faster heating response times, lower running costs, ease of installation and the avoidance of unwanted heat losses. We review all underfloor heating projects based on their individual merits, specifying the best tube size, design and tube layout suited to any given project.

Q. Why manifold-and-distributor architecture?
The Nu-Heat approach is rather like having motorways running to the outskirts of each town, and local roads serving local needs. You certainly would not want several motorways ending up at your front door. Our distributor-and-manifold architecture ensures that there are no ‘hot spots’ in the property as the tubing runs to and from the distributor in that zone, rather than, as with other systems running the tubes through corridors to a manifold. The latter system results in several tubes being laid up on each other, resulting in uneven heat distribution.

Installation options enable the distributors to be located discreetly within the floor, in particular walls, in cupboards or elsewhere. It is possible to place the distributors somewhere accessible, although there is no inherent need for this. Their long term reliability is assured as the distributors comply with stringent British standards for plumbing installations. Nu-Heat also specifies pressure testing as a routine part of the installation process.

Q. How does the system work?
Nu-Heat’s Fastflo-10™ manifold-and-distributor architecture carries warm water to each zone via one pair of larger-bore pipes, usually 18mm in diameter. For effective heat distribution, the flow is divided into a number of coils of Fastflo-10™ tubing. The number of coils used in the zone depends on the size and heat density required (in Watts per square metre).

The required heat output for each zone is calculated by Nu-Heat’s Optimiser 4.0 software. To ensure the correct design, many factors are taken into account, including heat losses, floor construction, floor coverings and water temperature.

Fastflo-10™ technology enables rooms to be heated faster than larger tubes due to its smaller diameter. The greater surface area, relative to the water volume, means it is able to generate heat more rapidly and efficiently; delivering heat where it is wanted, when it is wanted. Combine this with a maximum tube length of 50 metres and homeowners will warm their houses faster, due to the shorter distance the water has to travel to and from the distributor (opposed to other systems supplied where the water has to join the motorway network).

Fastflo-10™ is more flexible than larger tubing; which enables installers to place the tubing into awkward corners, ensuring the entire floor is used as a heat emitter. Fastflo-10™ can also be placed at closer spacing than larger tubing, again strengthening its ability to act as a complete heat emitter and eliminate unwanted cold spots.

Q. How is it actually installed?
Once all factors concerning the project and the design has been approved, installing a system is relatively straightforward. When working with screed, the UFH tubing is simply clipped to the standard insulation layer before pouring the screed. For suspended timber floors the system can be fitted easily and safely, especially from below, after the decking has been laid. The tubing is simply fed through pre-notched or battened joists and clipped to the underneath of the decking.

Q. Are there any exceptions where Nu-Heat would specify a different tubing size?

Whilst Nu-Heat’s Fastflo-10™, with manifold-and-distributor architecture, provides the optimum underfloor heating solution for the room sizes and mix encountered in most residential properties, exceptions are sometimes encountered. In any such case, Nu-Heat will propose the use of larger heating tube sizes, such as Fastflo-14™, from its comprehensive product range.

Nu-Heat warm water underfloor heating has fully designed over 9,500 underfloor heating systems to the UK, specifying its unique distributor-and-manifold architecture, combined with their Fastflo-10™ tubing. To find out more about their specialist systems and how they can help you achieve faster heating response times and greater comfort, please call their sales team on 0800 7311976, alternatively visit http://www.nu-heat.co.uk

Architectural Stained Glass Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Example

Esthetic Accents carries on the mission of architectural great. Frank Lloyd Wright's approach to architectural stained glass lives on.

Portland, OR (PRWEB) June 10, 2021 -- Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius, but he worked far in advance of the technology that would make his design work more practical. His architectural use of stained glass, for example, was aesthetically pleasing and a signature component of his designs, but today thanks to breakthroughs in materials, mass marketing, and efficient production techniques, nearly everyone can have stained glass the world-renowned architect would have loved.

Inspired by the pioneering work of master architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Portland, Oregon-based producer and purveyor of architectural stained glass, Esthetic Accents, has made Wright's vision available and affordable to homeowners, builders or developers throughout the world.

Those familiar with the Frank Lloyd Wright style will appreciate the attention to detail, the organic look and feel of the glass Esthetic Accents brings to market. The company that has led the way to the mass customization of architectural stained glass lives by the words of the master architect. In fact, He might have been describing Esthetic Accents philosophy when he said: “Organic buildings are the strength and lightness of the spiders' spinning, buildings qualified by light, bred by native character to environment, married to the ground. The architect should strive continually to simplify; the ensemble of the rooms should then be carefully considered that comfort and utility may go hand in hand with beauty.” The use of stained glass is in keeping with Wright’s approach. As Wright said, “True ornament is not a matter of prettifying externals. It is organic with the structure it adorns.”

Many of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous houses were graced with stained glass panels bearing his trademark geometric, Native American and Asian-inspired designs. Esthetic Accents provides the variety of styles, looks, shapes and sizes that Wright insisted on. There was only one way in which Wright’s designs could be improved upon: making them more durable. Thanks to breakthroughs made possible by new advances in technology, architectural stained glass can now be made with zinc beveling rather than less durable lead, and can be tempered and electroplated in large quantities, quickly, efficiently, and affordably.

Frank Wright believed that stained glass was not just something one should see only in churches. It was something to be lived with, providing a look that added light and color to any living space. Architectural stained glass is sturdy, decorative, and practical. Its uses are many and varied, indoors and out: doors, windows, shower enclosures, hot tub privacy panels, railings, skylights, kitchen cabinets, privacy windows, bathroom sidelights, room dividers -- all can benefit from the use of durable, tempered stained glass. Thanks to Esthetic Accents, all of these are now realistic design choices that are perfect for a home, yard, and even for commercial applications.

Mary Spear, co-owner and founder of Esthetic Accents, said, “People who love Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass can now enjoy the beauty and the effect of the Wright style with practical and affordable stained glass designs that he inspired. He may be gone but it is almost as if he were in the world again.”

Aleluya, Real Estate Developers Spend Millions in the Bible Belt -- West Coast of Florida

South Florida is a hot real estate market and now smaller counties on the west coast of Florida, six hours north of Miami, Florida, are starting to reap the benefits. North Florida, far from the hip Miami Beach scene, once nick named the bible-belt, is reaping the benefits of higher land prices in major cities in South Florida (Miami, Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, Boca Raton, Ocala, Tallahassee, and Weston). As developers search for cheaper land to build they are venturing to smaller counties in North Florida with populations of less than 2,500 that still have affordable land prices with acres going for less than $10,000, a steal by developers and first time investor standards. - As land developers feel the price squeeze in South Florida, they are seeking to capitalize on the ability to build and buy for less in small west coast counties that are looking for growth and to profit from the booming Florida real estate market with property prices way below major cities.

(PRWEB) June 10, 2021 -- The same way many during the gold rush went digging to find the glimmering gold dust in the west, land developers, the new property cowboys, are heading to the west coast of Florida for cheap land buys to build condominium developments and single family homes.

Ocala and Tampa have become popular among developers in the past 8 months as more buy up land. Their good fortune is spreading now to surrounding west coast counties that are banking on their new popularity.

If you haven't heard of Jena, Chiefland, Cross City, Steinhachee, Suwannee River, Fanning Springs, Andrew, take a look at Map Quest or Yahoo Directions for a reference point. These small counties are becoming more popular than Ft.Lauderdale and Brickell, in Miami, as buyers go West to the new frontier to buy up land treasures at 90% less than prices in South Florida.

Cross City, population 2,500, land area 1.9 square miles, 35-40 minutes west of Gainsville, is one of the new land Florida hot spots on the west coast. This small county has some of the best land in Florida and when it is placed on the market the properties fly.

Much of the land has been owned by Florida families for over 80 years. They are now parting with it because of the hot Florida property market. Keller Williams Real Estate in Miami, Florida, is quickly listing many of these properties and making millions for west coast property owners. KW Realtors saw the trend and quickly began a marketing program for the land to interest potential buyers and seller.

"Our brokerage just listed 320 acres in Cross City, Florida, at $10,000 an acre, totaling $3,180,000. We've received hundreds of calls. You can't find these deals in South Florida any more, "says Vladimir Golik, Broker/Owner of Keller Williams. "The acreage is well located adjacent to the Airport, and is suitable for condo development, single family homes, even agricultural. The Property is on highland, which not much land is in North Florida. Another big plus is accessible from highway RT 19, that is a big plus when so much land in west and north Florida is on paved roads."

Jena Beach is another popular west coast Florida investment area. Jena was named one of the fastest growing counties in Florida by Florida Trends magazine. This fishing town is Hampton-like during the Summers, and property prices are soaring just like the Hamptons.

Jena, with access to the Gulf of Mexico and great marinas is a boaters paradise that is well situated for pre-construction condo development with shop opportunities or straight commercial land use. There is currently a condo development project in the Jena area, BridgePoint Condominiums, average price is $350,000-$600,000, the first phase has already sold out (http://steinhatcheefl.com/floorplans.html).

Golik, also has eight acres available in Jena that was just listed for $2.7 million, just waiting for the right developer, as he says.

As land prices continue to rise in South Florida the move is on to the west as land prices continue to rise in South Florida the move will continue west toward the Gulf of Mexico, the last of the virgin Florida water.

Cooper Construction and AMB Property Corporation Break Ground at AMB Milton/401 Business Park

Canadian–U.S. collaboration paves the way for one million square feet of distribution facilities in the Greater Toronto Area

Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Cooper Construction Limited of Oakville, Ontario has been selected by AMB Property Corporation (NYSE:AMB), a global developer and owner of industrial real estate, to build AMB’s first project in Canada. AMB recently acquired a 33-acre site and 15-acre option from Cooper Construction on Regional Road 25, just north of Highway 401, which will support development of one million square feet of logistics and distribution space in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Demand for industrial space in the GTA continues to be strong with average vacancy rates in the 5% range over the past 10-years. The GTA is North America’s fourth largest industrial market, after Los Angeles, Chicago and the greater New York/New Jersey area. Its geographic position and significant manufacturing base make it an extremely important North American distribution hub market. One quarter of Canada’s consumer population lives with a 100-mile radius of the GTA and approximately half the U.S. population is located within a one-day drive of Toronto’s prime industrial locations.

“AMB Milton/401 Business Park is well situated for third-party logistics and bulk distribution customers,” said Jay Cornforth, AMB’s senior vice president, development. “The park is located just 15-20 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport, has rapid access to Highway 401 and is two and a half hours from the Detroit/Windsor border crossing – Canada’s busiest point of land entry. The highly functional and well-located product we are developing with Cooper Construction will help our customers speed their goods to market.”

Cooper Construction, which has been actively engaged in all aspects of the construction industry in Ontario since 1905, is providing design/build construction services for AMB, including architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical together with turnkey construction services for the state-of-the-art facility.

“We have worked with AMB to create the GTA’s most functional distribution facility in the market,” said Ken Nevar, Executive Vice President, Cooper Construction. "With rapid access to customers via Highway 401, the AMB Milton/401 Business Park development is ideally suited for companies looking for a well-positioned location in the flourishing community of Milton."

The facility plans call for outside storage accommodating ample trailer parking and 52-foot wide bays. Building depths will be approximately 355 feet with a clear height of 28 feet and column spacing of 52 x 50 feet. The facility will be rear loaded, with a dock door ratio of 1/7,000 square feet and independent truck courts of 183 feet. The property will benefit from ESFR sprinkler systems and has been granted M2 zoning status, encompassing both warehouse and distribution uses.

The listing team of Gord Cook and Ian Gragtmans of Colliers International will represent AMB in the leasing of AMB Milton 401 Business Park. They have successfully closed more than 11 million square feet of real estate transactions since 1998.

Souvenir Building Network Introduces Custom Architectural Miniatures

The Souvenir Building Network (www.souvenirbuildings.com) introduced today a new one-stop shopping service for the production of custom-made architectural miniatures.

Nellysford, VA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 9, 2021 -- The Souvenir Building Network (www.souvenirbuildings.com) introduced today a new one-stop shopping service for the production of architectural miniatures. Drawing on an exclusive, worldwide network of skilled manufacturers, the SBN will obtain comparative estimates for a custom-made replica and handle all production details from design to final shipment.

For the first time, architects, real estate developers, museums, historical attractions and corporations can quickly and easily order custom made replicas of their properties, secure in the knowledge that it will match their needs and pocketbooks. Souvenir building collectors can turn to the SBN online catalog to find miniature buildings and monuments for their collections.

The Souvenir Building Network began selling three-dimensional metal replicas of famous buildings and monuments to collectors in 1994. Over the years it has developed a network of skilled manufacturers of souvenir buildings in the United States, Russia, China, Spain and Italy. The manufacturers include large companies, boutique operations and individual artisans. They work in pot metal, pewter, zinc, cold cast metal, crystal, polyurethane and polyresin.

The services of the SBN have been used by a variety of clients, including architects, real estate developers, banks, museums and city fathers who needed a special souvenir to mark an event. Clients include the LPA Architects of Irvine, CA; the Macklowe Organization and Deutsche Bank of New York City; the Dollar Savings Bank of Pittsburgh; the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and the city of Petersburg, VA.

To produce a souvenir building or architectural miniature, a designer uses photographs, drawings or architectural elevations of the actual building to make a scale model or pattern. Once the customer has approved the model, it is used to make a casting mold. This mold can then produce dozens, hundreds or even thousands of replicas.

Pricing is generally quoted as the model/mold cost and the unit production cost. Model/mold costs typically range from $600 to $6,000; unit production costs range from $1 to $200 and up. Prices depend on the architectural details and complexity of the original, as well as the size, quantity and materials used for the miniature.

A souvenir building can be as small as a silver bracelet charm, or as large as a 12” high skyscraper.

Commercial Real Estate Investment Bank Offers Advice on How Corporations Can Use Real Estate to Access Untapped Capital

Pacific Security Capital offers advice to corporations on how to use commercial real estate investments to their advantage.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Pacific Security Capital (http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com), a leading commercial real estate investment bank providing commercial real estate loans, structured finance, investment sales and advisory services shares valuable advice on how corporations can use real estate investments to access untapped capital.

Most corporations of any size and scale have large investments in the land and facilities necessary for the successful operation of their business. Mike Myatt, Executive Managing Director of Pacific Security Capital, advises that “while making corporate investments into real estate assets may seem to be a reasonable strategy at first glance, they are rarely investment or capital driven decisions, but rather operating decisions that in retrospect usually fail to maximize the leverage and value of their land and facilities beyond what is typically provided for within traditional ownership and financing structures.”

When an operating business finds itself in need of low cost capital their corporate real estate assets should be evaluated as a source of readily accessible quality capital. While a number of financially engineered solutions are available to maximize corporate real estate assets the most commonly used structures center around Sale Leaseback transactions.

Sale Leaseback transactions are popular solutions for the following reasons:

Improved Financial Statements: By moving corporate real estate assets “Off-Balance Sheet” financing solutions are engineered that create no mortgage or other indebtedness to be carried as debt on your company's balance sheet. The immediate boost in cash without offsetting debt can improve the overall financial health of a business. Book income typically increases in the transaction's early years, with rent payments less than the interest and depreciation under conventional financing. With our solutions, the book value of company assets is effectively understated — enhancing your company's Return on Assets (ROA).

Financial Flexibility: Corporate and commercial real estate transactions are not bound by formalized loan industry or REIT requirements, giving lenders flexibility to meet the operating needs of your business. Rents can be fixed for the full lease term without inflation adjustments or any percentage rent. Rents can also be stepped to be lower in the early years or reset periodically to take advantage of improved credit, interest rates and other conditions. We can also address unexpected financial and business contingencies.

Operational Control: Most commercial real estate investment banks offer programs that will allow you to retain complete operational control of the property for as long as it is required in your business.

Low After-Tax Cost: The lease payment under a sale leaseback structure is fully deductible over the lease term, making the after-tax cost to your company less than with alternative forms of asset-based financing and less than the market rent you would typically pay. For federal income tax purposes, a company can only depreciate buildings and other physical improvements, but not land. Most sale leaseback solutions factor the value of the land into the rent. The rent is fully deductible, effectively enabling you to depreciate the cost of the land.

Credit Tenant Property Can Provide Similar Financial Benefits To the Issuance of Corporate Bonds: If a business is deemed to be a credit tenant or its financial equivalent its corporate real estate assets can be effectively be used to secure management-free cash flow with exceptional liquidity and high leveragability performing like corporate bonds while preserving the benefits that real property offers. Because of the secure character of credit tenant property investments, properties can be leveraged far more highly than traditional real estate. Based on the lease guarantee by the tenant, non-recourse financing may be arranged with a 1.0 debt coverage ratio, allowing for financing Up to 100% loan to value. Income from an investment grade tenant over the length of a multi-year lease offers reliable returns comparable to those of corporate bonds. Credit tenant leases are usually written for terms ranging from 10 to 25 years. Lengthy terms eliminate concern about tenant turnover normally associated with real estate ownership.

Near-Zero Volatility: Many of the corporate real estate programs today offer fixed rent structures providing full inflation protection. Because the key value determinant of credit tenant property is the long-term corporate guarantee, this asset does not experience the cycles affecting other real estate markets. Long-term, highly leverage financing removes interest rate risk and minimizes pricing volatility. Circumstances affecting traditional real estate, such as changes to surrounding property, local politics and market swings have little impact on credit tenant property values.

Liquidity: The long-term corporate guarantee of rental income and expense coverage combined with the tenant-based financing enable corporate real estate assets to be traded with exceptional liquidity not typically associated with real property. Most lenders will allow businesses to convert existing fixed real estate assets into cash at fair market value at what may be a premium over book value. Funding can also be used for new construction including the cost of the land acquisition. Proper use of corporate real estate as a financing tool will eliminate the need for a business to tie up capital or credit in land or buildings.

Mr. Myatt shares a final piece of advice: “A wide variety of sale leaseback structures are available from lenders who have a practice area dedicated to corporate real estate finance. When developing your capital formation strategy make sure you evaluate corporate real estate assets as a viable vehicle for accomplishing your goals.”

Outdoor Kitchen Products Allow Contractors to Maximize Profits

Modular BBQ island installations allow outdoor kitchen contractors to maximize their profits by minimizing installation labor, tools and equipment, while giving customers elegant choices.

Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- National Pool and Tile (NP&T;) an Anaheim, Calif.-based distributor of pool tile, stone, decking and pool finishes, knows that outdoor kitchens are a growing trend in moderate to high-end homes nationwide. In response to this trend NPT now offers a modular BBQ island product that minimizes labor and maximizes profits.

This growth is a boon to savvy residential installation contractors who know that today’s homeowner wants a custom outdoor kitchen and entertainment center that allows them to hand pick everything from the stainless steel rotisserie grills, burners, coolers, and sinks, to built in cabinets and stereo equipment.

“Adding NPT BBQ Islands to our services broadened our customer base and our product line,” says Matt Perezchica, general manager of Johnson Pools in Windsor, Calif., who has been in the pool construction for 17 years. “It’s one more thing we can offer existing customers.”

In the past, creating custom BBQ islands required specialized masonry labor and tools used—not to mention purchasing and transporting heavy materials, like stone, concrete and wood products, from different suppliers. To address this problem, NPT has created a modular BBQ island product that allows landscape contractors, remodelers, and builders to make high profit margins by offering a variety of prefabricated modular island units that come preassembled. One laborer can off-load by hand, assemble and finish a basic unit in one day with minimal tools.

Brandon Holladay, owner and president of Champion Landscaping & Design, a high-end residential landscape contractor in Houston, Texas has installed traditional BBQ islands since it started up in 2001, but a few years ago Holladay started selling customers on NPT BBQ Islands. Because he’s been able to capitalize on the growing outdoor kitchen market, Holladay says he expects to double his 2004 gross sales, which could earn him $1,200,000 in 2005. A huge part of Champion’s growth is because they’re able to capitalize on the labor and material cost savings by using a modular BBQ system rather than the traditional method of building the BBQ frame from scratch.

Flat Panel Monitors Justify Costs

Everyone wants the new thin stylish flat panel monitors instead of fat old CRTs but management demands justification for the expense. Now they have it.

Denver, Colo. June 8, 2021 (PRWEB) June 8, 2021 -- New flat panel LCD monitors are stylish, contemporary, and make every office look more professional. While every worker wants an LCD, management demands justification for the expense of replacing existing CRTs.

Fortunately, there are very real benefits that result from upgrading to LCDs – benefits that flow directly to the bottom line. The total cost of ownership is neutralized by a positive return on investment that can easily exceed 100%. According to major industry reports, the cost savings incurred by converting to LCDs are:

Space: Real savings come from more efficient use of the work space. CRTs have hogged the desktop for over twenty years. The corner workstations that were necessary to provide a home for the deep CRTs are no longer needed. Workstations can now be designed and arranged for specific tasks and space requirements. Stations that are designed with LCDs and a monitor arm can be over 20% smaller, without sacrificing any functional working area.

Rent: Less space quite simply means less rent paid. Additional savings can be realized through affiliated costs such as taxes, maintenance, and janitorial.

Tenant fit-out: Costs in completing interior tenant construction are reduced in smaller spaces

Building mechanical and electrical: Reduced energy requirements allow for downsized major mechanical and electrical requirements of smaller facilities.

Furniture: Without the bulky CRTs, smaller and less complex furniture is acceptable for a fully functional workstation.

Energy: Xcel Energy determined that Flat panel LCD monitors save 60 – 90% in direct electricity use over CRTs. In addition, due to the substantial reduction in heat output of the LCDs versus CRTs, there are also lower costs for air conditioning.

Product life span: The average electronic life span of an LCD is thirteen years versus five years for a CRT. This fact alone offsets price differentials between CRTs and LCDs.

Cost of disposal:
Eight state landfills, including California have stopped accepting CRTs because of the lead content and the costs of disposal are increasing annually.

Health and safety: According to the American Optometric Association, 90% of users of existing CRTs suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), costing businesses $2 billion a year. Because they do not flicker like CRTs, LCDs greatly alleviate CVS and associated costs.

As beneficial as they are, flat panel LCD monitors do not create space saving benefits. Because of the relationship between the user and the monitor, the front of the screen must be at the same distance from the user’s eyes as with the CRT, which is in the range of 20 – 26 inches. Simply placing a LCD on the work surface in place of a CRT will not realize any effective gain in usable work space because the only real space savings will be directly behind the monitor, which is basically useless.

Transforming space behind a flat panel monitor into usable space can be accomplished by installing the monitor onto a monitor arm. SpaceCo created a free floating monitor arm named SpaceArm that not only frees up the work surface directly under the LCD for other uses, and the monitor can easily be moved back and out of the way when the user needs full use of the work surface for other tasks. Articulating monitor arms also increase the ergonomic integrity of the work space. With SpaceArm’s advanced five axis position adjustment and pneumatic counterbalance, the height, depth, and tilt angle can be easily adjusted as desired. The monitor can also be ergonomically adjusted to the correct focal distance and axis of vision.

With the proven financial benefits of LCD monitors and the addition of a monitor arm, the question for businesses is not “Can we afford to upgrade?” but rather “Can we afford not to?”

Bob Linnert, Designer of Custom House Plans, Has Released a Free Report, "The Seven Biggest Mistakes People Make When Building a House (and What You Can Do to Avoid Them)".

Anyone who is looking for house plans and getting ready to build needs to read this report first. Avoiding these common mistakes will save thousands of dollars and months of possible delays. And it is really very simple.

(PRWEB) June 8, 2021 -- Building your new house is supposed to be an exciting time, getting even better and better as the house progresses. But sometimes the dream turns into a nightmare. The house plans are not right. Things don't turn out as expected. The contractor doesn't work out, people don't do what they say. There are mistakes in the building and the price keeps going up and up, not to mention the frustration of continual delays.

Bob Linnert, well known designer of custom house plans, has seen these scenarios over and over again. People would come to him halfway through their project with serious issues and they needed immediate professional help. After a while he was able to see a pattern emerging. It was uncanny. He found that there were really only Seven mistakes that people were making, but they were making them repeatedly. Just seven. Not everyone that was in crisis had made all Seven, but every single person with a major problem had made at least one, without fail.

He checked with his own customers, people whose home-building experiences had been great. And what he found was this. None of them had made any of these mistakes. This was more than a coincidence. These seven issues seemed to be the difference in a good building experience and a disastrous one. He has since been sharing these concepts with outstanding results. Now he has put all of this into a free report. If you are building a new house now or in the near future, you owe it to yourself to read this report now. Visit www.bbd-plans.com for this free report.

Research Reveals Builders Don’t Listen – Help is on the Way

Stebnitz Builders, a Delavan Wisconsin Remodeler, is using a new method called Procedural Listening. Procedural Listening ensures that all client communication is documented and absorbed throughout their entire organization. This has allowed Stebnitz Builders to achieve amazingly consistent results and even higher client satisfaction.

Delavan, WI (PRWEB) June 8, 2021 -- Stebnitz Builders, a family-owned design-build home remodeling company, announced today that it has implemented a methodology called “Procedural Listening”, which is a proprietary discipline that ensures all client communication is documented and passed throughout the entire organization.

“I know listening sounds like common sense and something you’d think everyone would just do,” says Chris Stebnitz, one of three family members who own the company. “We discovered research that showed that only 30% of what is said is actually heard. That meant that 70% of what is said is not retained.” Chris Stebnitz goes on to say that their new methodology helps ensure that 100% of what is said by the client is not only heard but also documented. Once all client needs are documented and agreed upon, it is internalized by every part of the organization, which has been trained in Procedural Listening.

Procedural Listening was not something that manifested overnight. In 2004 Stebnitz Builders invested in a self discovery process to find ways to separate their company from their competitors. Beginning in fall of 2004, several months were spent talking to clients, associates, suppliers and other stakeholders to identify what, if anything could be done to improve their company.

“Like every business, ours is very competitive,” says Dan Stebnitz. “Winning national awards isn’t enough. We needed to continue to look for ways to differentiate ourselves.”

“We’ve always kept track of client feedback and are used to people saying good things about their project,” says Dave Stebnitz. “Now we also hear great things about the way our company listens. It’s incredibly rewarding to know that people truly appreciate their remodeling experience as a result of the Procedural Listening process.”

For more information about Stebnitz Builders’ or their Procedural Listening methodology, visit www.stebnitzbuilders.com, or email us at e-mail protected from spam bots, or call 800.410.8027.

Your Nearest Neighbor could be a Billion-year-old Boulder

A new residential community in Prescott, AZ, is filled with rock formations found nowhere else in the country.

Sedona, AZ (PRWEB) June 7, 2021 -- (Prescott's neighbor to the northwest and known for its spectacular red rock formations) has nothing on this new residential community.

Granite Park, a residential community located in Prescott, Arizona, is filled with 1.4 billion-year-old granite rock formations. These towering boulders add a level of majesty to this community found nowhere else.

Rock formations of this type are rare in the United States. Northern Arizona to southern California are the most common locations for these statuesque boulders.

Formed in the Precambrian age, 1.4 billion years ago, these rocks started life under the earth's surface as large masses of molten rock, according to Dr. Archie M. Dickey, professor of environmental science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The rocks then cool before reaching the surface.

"This procedure is referred to as an intrusive igneous rock formation," said Dr. Dickey. "The molten rocks cool slowly and in the process form large, course-grained rocks."

After the granite was exposed at the surface, it was then at the mercy of the elements. Wind, rain, snow all started eroding the rocks.

However, in the case of these particular formations, they produced their unique shapes and vistas because the granite first weathered in blocky, rectangular joints.

Visitors can actually see this throughout Granite Park – the blocky reddish-brown linear lines on the boulders. Dr. Dickey explains that as the weathering continued, the granite turned into its now round distinctive shape. This type of weathering is called spheroidal weathering.

Residents of the new Granite Park community will be able to stroll down trails featuring these two-hundred-foot high rock cliffs and four-foot-wide passages. Some of those trails will connect to Prescott city parks.

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. Celebrates 26 Years in Business

Dallas Contracting Co., Inc., (website: http://www.dallascontracting.com) a specialized contractor providing demolition, dismantlement, onsite concrete crushing, equipment salvage and scrap metal recycling to various industries, celebrates its 26th year in business.

South Plainfield, NJ (PRWEB) June 7, 2021 -- Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. was started by two brothers, John Sisto and Donald Sisto. Initially the company predominantly performed excavation and site work services. While performing these services, the brothers saw there was an opportunity to expand their business by performing demolition services. Demolition and dismantlement services quickly became the main service of the company.

In 2000, Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. was awarded several demolition projects that had a sizeable amount of concrete, brick and masonry to be demolished. To send the materials offsite for recycling was going to be expensive. In addition, the clients were requiring that imported backfill be used to fill the voids where the slabs and foundation were removed. The brothers saw an opportunity to purchase a portable concrete crusher to not only crush the concrete aggregates onsite but also to use this material as structural backfill. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. purchased an Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. UltraMax 1000-15CV Plant with stacking conveyors. To facilitate the concrete crushing operation Dallas Contracting also purchased a Komatsu PC-400 mounted with a concrete pulverizer jaw attachment and a Komatsu PC-300 mounted with a hydraulic hammer. With this equipment, Dallas Contracting can provide complete demolition, concrete removal and crushing operations from building demolition, slab and foundation removal to concrete sizing, onsite concrete crushing and stockpiling or backfilling.

To compliment the demolition and concrete crushing services, Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. also entered the used and surplus equipment market. Damon Kozul, PE, CHMM heads the investment recovery department within Dallas Contracting. Mr. Kozul examines each project for salvageable or re-useable equipment which includes everything from electrical components, motors, pumps, reactors, tanks, valves, surplus inventory, generators, laboratory equipment and other process or mechanical equipment. The ability to salvage and sell used equipment from projects has allowed Dallas Contracting to offer our clients the ability to see substantial offsets in their overall project costs. In some cases the value of the used and surplus equipment has been so substantial that Dallas Contracting has actually paid the client for the project instead of the typical transaction where the client pays the contractor to perform the project.

About Dallas Contracting Co., Inc.
Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. has been in business for 26 years, is financially sound (D&B; Rating of 3A2), is bondable, and works on a nationwide basis. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. offers a turnkey approach to demolition, concrete recycling and remediation projects by offering the following services under one roof:

Demolition, Onsite Concrete Crushing and Recycling, Environmental Remediation, Rigging, Brownfield Redevelopment, Surplus and Used Equipment Sales, Interior Demolition, Equipment Removals, Dismantlement, Plant Relocations, Asset and Investment Recovery, Wrecking, Equipment Salvage, Scrap Metal Recycling, and Boiler and HVAC Demolition.

Centres-Siegel Tackles Challenging Shopping Center Project

A shopping center site at 28th Street and Iris Avenue in Boulder, Colorado will soon see the active redevelopment and leasing that has eluded the property for the last four years.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 6, 2021 -- Centres-Siegel tackles challenging shopping center project: Safeway-anchored property in Boulder nearly 75% leased.

A shopping center site at 28th Street and Iris Avenue in Boulder, Colorado will soon see the active redevelopment and leasing that has eluded the property for the last four years. Anchored by a successful Safeway store which will undergo an expansion of its own, the 28,000 square-foot Safeway Marketplace has begun redevelopment to accommodate new tenants for the first time since its initial construction in 2001.

“This property is in a terrific location for retail in Boulder,” said Dick Siegel of Centres-Siegel, the company that is redeveloping, leasing and managing the property. “It took just the right combination of resources and people to succeed at this site. We are excited to have been chosen for this project and excited about the businesses we have already been able to attract.”

Leases have already been completed with Washington Mutual, Cost Cutters, Papa Murphy’s, Boulder Liquor and John’s Cleaners. Spaces for these businesses, which constitute 75% of the leasable space, are already under construction with scheduled completion of September 1. Negotiations are on-going with several other well known companies in the quick service restaurant category. Siegel expects the remaining available space to be fully leased by the end of 2005.

According to Howard Garelick, director of real estate for Safeway, “getting Dick Siegel and Ken Karl from Centres-Siegel involved was exactly what we needed to get this project moving forward. Their experience and skills in both developing and leasing shopping centers has made a real difference.”

Centres, Inc. is a full service real estate development and construction management organization, specializing in retail, food and drug facility development. The company, established in 1982 by Ken Karl, develops projects throughout the United States and counts 200 retail projects, in 20 states, totaling more than 9 million square feet among its achievements.

Richard (Dick) Siegel brings more than 40 years of diverse experience identifying, negotiating and closing retail real estate transactions totaling more than $400,000,000 to his position as partner with Centres-Siegel.

El Boom de las Casas Prefabricadas

El alto precio del ladrillo provoca un aumento en la demanda de casas prefabricadas.

(PRWEB) June 6, 2021 --
• La rapidez de construcción de este tipo de viviendas y el menor coste en el precio de la construcción y un mayor aislamiento térmico - acústico, son las principales ventajas frente a la construcción tradicional.

• Seguramente alguna vez le han llamado la atención las casas americanas alguna de ellas imponentes por su tamaño y que aparecen en el cine o la televisión, y que se diferencian del sistema de construcción que tradicionalmente se realizan en España. Lo cierto es que dichas viviendas son casas “hechas en parte en la fábrica” se realizan mediante estructura y ensamblaje de la misma.

• La comercialización de este sistema de construcción industrializada, hace años que se realiza en nuestro país, actualmente el sistema es muy similar a la construcción de grandes edificios hoteles, naves industriales, pero con diferencias basadas a la construcción de viviendas unifamiliares.

• Las casas prefabricadas tiene las mismas garantías que una construcción tradicional de ladrillo, con algunas ventajas como el tiempo de ejecución de la obra y el coste de las mismas. “Estas viviendas no tienen nada que envidiar a las casas de construcción tradicional, siendo incluso más confortables, debido a los materiales aislantes, ahorrando en energía por tanto en los gastos en la factura de calefacción o aire acondicionado.

• Al mismo tiempo realizamos una función de conservación del planeta por el ahorro energético sobre la combustión de materiales fósiles, reduciendo así la contaminación atmosférica.

• También se reduce el consumo de agua por que la mayoría de los materiales que se utilizan prácticamente no requieren de agua para la fabricación y posterior construcción, (construcción bioclimática y ecológica).

• Estos materiales con los que se trabaja son muy dúctiles y permiten que en un futuro se hagan reformas, ampliaciones con mayor rapidez, menores problemas y más económico. "Casas Prefabricadas" Información detallada en:

New in Homes

Using stains to solve brick matching problems

(PRWEB) June 4, 2021 -- Construction professionals involved in a renovation or restoration project involving masonry consistently run into problems associated with color matching new and old masonry. Renovators and project managers often spend hours driving from one end of the Metroplex to the other, trying to find a brick matching a sample from their project in color and texture.

Bricks come in a variety of textures: smooth, sandy, rough, hand made and others, also the most of new bricks have 3 to 5 colors blend. Attemting to match not only the color, but it's texture is daunting and often impossible task. The problem is compounded by the discontinuation of many of the more traditional brick lines found in older structures(before 1970).

Brick and masonry staining
Brick staining has been used in North East Coast in the US for over 25 years and Europe for over 50. When performed by skilled and experienced technicians, this process can often produce an exact match to an existing brick both in color and age. Technicians typically learn to mix the stains trough several years of on-site training.

Stains generally comprise a combination of pigments that are mixed on-site, tested on the new brick and modified until the technician finds the perfect match. Then a fixing agent penetrate the porous of the bricks and become a part of them. It is important the formulation used does not seal the masonry unit in any way. The structure must be allowed to breath in exactly the same manner as untreated surfaces.

The stains are light fast, UV resistant, unaffected by frost and usually available with a 25 year warranty. The formulation is then added to the brick to make the color permanent.

Potential applications
There are several applications in which masonry staining can significantly contribute to the final appearance of the project and provide an economical alternative to brick replacement.

Repaired walls
Masonry repairs can leave walls looking mismatched when the bricks used do not properly match existing bricks.

Smoke damage
Smoke can cause serous descolorization in masonry. In one such case, a wall had been cleaned eight times but its appearance could not be improved.

Dye lots
Dye lot differences can occur when two different runs or batches of brick are installed on the same building.

Staining for the long-haul
Brick staining using a safe and non-intrusive formula, can effectivelly resolve brick and masonry color matching problems. Architects, project managers, remodelers and property managers do not have to accept mismatched masonry in additions or repairs. Painting bric can improve a structure's appearance, but in most cases requires redoing every five years. Staining should least 25 years or more.

New Market Research Reports an Open Market for Windows and Doors

New market research study indicates that the market for windows and doors has grown at a healthy rate of 15.8% over the past 12 years.

New York (PRWEB) June 4, 2021 -- Specialists in Business Information (SBI) estimates the market for windows and doors at $29.16 billion in 2004, a 15.8% rate of growth from the period 1992 through 2004. Several factors have affected the industry. Energy efficiency, new materials, and value-added products have been major influencers in the windows and doors market, along with the recent strengthening of government influence over the industry with the introduction of new codes on hurricane resistance affecting the east coast and stricter energy codes throughout the country.

As the industry moves forward in creating and improving window and door technologies to meet these codes, it is not losing sight of decorative style and architectural enhancement. Changing lifestyle and demographic trends, which emphasize individual tastes, forces window and door manufacturers to increase development of customized and innovative products, especially in a growing remodeling market.

Although SBI predicts a housing slowdown due to the rise in interest rates, it will be partially offset by a growing remodeling market, according to Don Montouri, Acquisitions Editor for SBI. With that in mind, SBI estimates that the doors and window market will reach $39.05 billion by 2009.

Windows and doors are no longer for the professional market only. Consumer DIYers are also driving the market particularly in retrofit windows which use existing frames to install new windows and entail no structural change or damage to exterior walls or the weather sealing.

SBI’s new report, The U.S. Market for Windows and Doors, presents an in-depth analysis of products, manufacturers, and remodelers in the market. The report covers windows and doors based on structure, functionality, utility and framing material with comprehensive data on U.S. shipments, imports, and exports, end-use markets, replacement market, purchaser demographics, and the competitive environment. Competitive profiles of major manufacturer and retailers are also included.

Innovation at OFFSITE2005 UK Construction Industry Event, Watford, England, 8th June

Inventa Partners, the innovation and technology transfer specialists, are hosting a reception on 8th June at 5:00pm at the Integer Demonstration House, OFFSITE2005, Watford in the UK

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Visitors to OFFSITE2005 in the UK can find out about new opportunities to achieve competitive advantage by employing the latest materials technologies to develop their building products and processes, through access to resources that include £60 billion of research funding and 30,000 scientists.

Inventa Partners, the innovation and technology transfer specialists, are hosting a reception on 8th June at 5:00pm at the Integer Demonstration House. They will be advising businesses on how they can benefit from the ‘Innovation Discovery Programme’, which is a collaborative scheme with BRE to provide construction companies with access to the expertise of Inventa’s European technology partners, who include QinetiQ in the UK.

Note to Editor: Inventa Partners Service
Inventa Partners’ service comprises four project phases:
1. Defining the project requirements and objectives
2. Assessing appropriate technologies
3. Agreeing the technical and commercialisation opportunities and issues
4. Facilitating the transfer of technology from the Inventa partner to the industry client

In the opening phase, Inventa develops a project brief with the client to identify the product or system application where the introduction of new technology or processes will potentially offer specific commercial advantage. It is significant that the initial focus at this stage is external - on the market and application - rather than internal, on production materials and processes, according to Kerry Thompson: this ensures the project team adopts lateral thinking when exploring the range of possible solutions.

Activity at this stage includes defining the programme objectives as well as parameters – ranging from technical constraints through to the impact of impending legislation. Kerry Thompson says, “ This is a critical stage: we identify opportunities that many companies – often major multinationals - previously did not know existed or technology requirements that they thought were unsolvable. Whilst the solution may not exist currently in the public domain within their industry sector, it may well be available elsewhere, tried and tested by one of our R&D; partners for an alternative application."

“ The programme we develop operates at a strategic level - to leverage market advantage through applied technical advance - and so requires agreement and participation at boardroom level, not just from the client’s R&D; or production team.”

During the second stage, Inventa undertakes detailed briefings with technology partners – such as materials scientists and process specialists - to identify and assess a range of candidate technologies. Inventa produces a final ‘Technology Discovery Report’ that sets out the best solutions, prioritised according to the agreed assessment criteria.

In the next phase, Inventa will confirm with the industry client the technological and business opportunities and then develop a ‘commercialisation roadmap’ for the client and the technology owner. This sets out the activity required to achieve full implementation. A typical roadmap might include an initial trial; followed by prototype testing; further development work; and licensing arrangements or a joint venture agreement, or both.

At the fourth and final stage, Inventa can assist the progression of the programme through its knowledge of the often unforeseen technical and business issues that arise from commercialisation.

This role as facilitator is supported by the detailed understanding Inventa will have developed in the preceding period of the needs and interests of the industry client. Inventa will continue to seek out additional, multiple technological opportunities for the company, based on this close association, for a fixed period of usually one year from project inception, within its terms of engagement.

The Vital Role of Acoustical Door Seals

When most people think of door seals they think of weather-stripping to stop the cold air from coming into their homes. What most people do not realize is that a one percent opening around a door will also let through fifty percent of the noise. Acoustical door seals are ideal for home theaters, offices, bedrooms, media rooms, medical buildings for HIPAA compliance, recording studios, apartments, industrial plants and anywhere else privacy or noise reduction is desired.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- The importance of acoustical door seals is derived from a fundamental property of sound: Sound waves travel through any opening with very little loss. While the amount of air flowing through a gap increases in proportion with the size of the gap, the size of the gap in a sound barrier does not matter. A tiny hole transmits almost as much sound as a much larger gap or hole. For example, a one square inch hole in one hundred square feet of gypsum board partition can transmit as much sound as the rest of the partition.

Because of this phenomenon, any unsealed gaps and clearances in door assemblies effectively cancel out the noise reduction benefits of sound rated doors. The performance loss is especially serious at medium to high frequencies, where normal conversation levels usually take place.

For acoustical door seals to be effective at blocking sound, the seals around the head, jamb, and sill of the door must be complete, uninterrupted and airtight throughout the service life of the door. For uninterrupted contact, the door seals must be installed all on the same side of the door and frame. Performance also depends on good surface contact between the seals and the door edge or frame, which can usually be achieved using compression seals.

However, gaps caused by imperfect door alignment are a common problem in newly installed seals and can also surface later on as buildings shift and settle and doors cycle through changes in temperature and humidity. For consistent performance over time, the most advanced acoustical door seals are designed with adjustable features to restore a sound-tight seal when clearances increase for any reason.

As with the door itself, the mass of the sealing material used in acoustical gasketing is a major factor in achieving higher sound reduction ratings. Combining complimentary materials can also provide better performance. Ultimately, the quality of the acoustical gasketing or seal is the biggest factor in overcoming any installation hazards and determining how close the actual sound performance of an assembly will come to the published rating of the door.

Acoustical door seal kits are available that include an automatic door bottom, which is spring operated, dropping a neoprene seal onto a threshold effectively sealing off the bottom of the door. In addition to that, door seal kits include high-grade neoprene door jambs for the vertical sides and the top of the door. Custom kits are available for oversized, undersized doors as well as double doors.

Donald Trump and Ivana Trump Battling on the Las Vegas Strip?

Over the weekend of May 30th and 31st, Ivana Trump was spotted in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ivana, the first ex-wife of real estate mogul Donald Trump, is lending her name to the 73-story luxury condo project formerly known as The Summit Las Vegas. The renamed high-rise, The Ivana, will be the tallest residential building in Las Vegas and is being developed by Australian Victor Altomare. By contrast, the Donald’s Trump International Hotel and Tower will rise an impressive 64 stories - 9 stories short of his ex.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Over the weekend of May 30th and 31st, Ivana Trump was spotted in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ivana, the first ex-wife of real estate mogul Donald Trump, is lending her name to the 73-story luxury condo project formerly known as The Summit Las Vegas. The renamed high-rise, The Ivana, will be the tallest residential building in Las Vegas and is being developed by Australian Victor Altomare. By contrast, the Donald’s Trump International Hotel and Tower will rise an impressive 64 stories - 9 stories short of his ex.

Donald Trump boasted to Larry King that his Trump International Hotel and Tower would be “absolutely fantastic. There will be nothing like it in Las Vegas.” The Trump Tower has already galvanized the Las Vegas high rise market with dozens of projects from various developers being rushed to the drawing board. “When Donald Trump announced plans to build it Vegas, it attracted the attention of the rest of the world. It helped legitimatize Las Vegas as a high rise condo market”, says Beverly Lacey a specialty high rise REALTOR in Las Vegas.

The New York Daily News recently cited a close friend of Ivana’s as saying “Ivana is investing her world-class fame. She was the guiding force in designing the interiors of Trump Tower, The Plaza, and The Grand Hyatt New York.” Lets hope she does better in Vegas than Miami, Florida where she lent her fame to a waterfront projected called Bentley Bay. The south beach developer of that project has been accused of fraud and filed bankruptcy for protection.

Construction on The Ivana is scheduled to begin July, 2005 whereas Donald’s Trump Tower Las Vegas will break ground sometime in late 2005. Trump Tower I has already sold out and Trump Tower II will begin taking reservations in December, 2005.

Eric Ettinger & Robert Ettinger Partnering to Re-Shape Long Island City

These two mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection (MEP/ FP), consulting design engineers are renowned throughout New York City and the tri-state area as a son and father team that are dedicated to formulating original designs that consider the architects’ and developers’ requirements along with the people who will live and/or work in the building. Robert Ettinger founded Engineering Associates in 1960. It began, forty-five years ago when Robert Ettinger formulated breakthrough engineering designs in modular hot water heating systems that received accolades throughout the engineering community. Today the spirit continues in this son and father team. Developers and architects regard them as highly creative and flexible team of consulting engineers that consistently create effective designs. Their innovative contributions to building design in NYC, the metro and tri-state area are notable.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Eric Ettinger and the Ettinger Engineering Associates team is in the process of designing a project at Thomson Avenue & Court Square (45-31 Court Square), which is being developed by The Andalex Group. This residential conversion project is situated in the heart of Long Island City the dynamic neighborhood just minutes from Manhattan that is home to a spectacular arts community. The unique triangular shaped structure will be transformed into luxury condominium residences with outstanding views of Manhattan. Ettinger Engineering Associates is excited to be a part of the progress in Long Island City and honored to perform the (MEP) engineering design for this project. We look forward to being an integral part of the ongoing development in this area. Ettinger Engineering has chosen to use vertical water source heat pumps to provide heating and cooling to all of the apartments. The obvious benefit is the ability for each tenant to control their individual heat and air conditioning temperature in their own apartment. Other benefits include the system’s energy efficiency long-term will accrue cost savings. For the developer, a substantial cost savings will come from Ettinger Engineering Associates ability to adapt the existing steam boilers to feed the closed loop heat pump system.

Thomson and Court Square will also have many special features including a distinctive pool and gym. Advanced technology will be utilized in these areas to keep the tenants and their guests comfortable. Ettinger Engineering chose a “Desert System” unit for the pool area dehumidification requirements. This system dehumidifies the air coming from the pool, maximizing comfort levels for all. This is truly an exceptional building in a part of our metro-area promising to be the next “hot spot” to live.

The architectural firm working on this project is Costas Kondylis & Partners.

India Iron Group Offers New Wrought Iron Machines

The India Iron Group has announced the new designs and export prices for their wrought iron machines with effect from 01,June 2005.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- The India Iron Group has announced the new export prices for their wrought iron machines with effect from 01,June 2005. The Group say that prices have been increased by about 12% from last year on account of the tremendous hike in iron and steel prices in India. However, prices of their popular PR-20 embossing unit have been somewhat reduced due to redesign of the machine to handle hollow tubes and pipes. The basic PR-20 is now offered for export at Euro 3,200 ex-works compared to the earlier price of Euro 4,700.

As a closeup view of the dies and toolings of the PR-20 iron embossing machine showed, the tooling technology is identical to that used by European manufacturers of similar machines as India's BISON company is an OEM supplier of CNC (computer manufactured) and hand crafted roller embossing dies to many German and Spanish machine manufacturers also. The best international tool steels are used to make these roller dies which are then tempered in computer controlled furnaces for long life.

Prices have been raised ,however, on the Group's BISON SBZ-3 stand alone iron scrolling machine. This computer controlled scroll forming machine is capable of producing upto 300 complex wrought iron scrolls per hour. Multi-segmented scrolling dies driven from a variable speed AC drive with encoder feedback and derivative spring back control results in accurate and consistent scrolls every time, as per the company sources. The SBZ-3 ornamental iron scroller and scroll bender is now priced at Euro 5,600 ex-works.

The India Iron Group also has a dedicated facility for automated ornamental iron scroll production. This unit is presently exclusively catering to the Middle East and Gulf market. With the increase in capacity by introduction of 12 new computerised machines, 2 of them with robot loaders, the Indian Iron Group is aggresively targeting the European and North America markets which are highly price sensitive.

American Standard Building Systems, Inc. Launches Retail New Home Division

Professional house plans and 100% financing enable homeowners to "Build with Confidence."

Martinsville, VA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 2, 2021 -- American Standard Building Systems Inc., one of the nation's oldest and largest manufacturers of framing components and new home building systems, announces the launch of its Owner Builder Solutions™ consumer direct division. Owner Builder Solutions turns homeowners into home builders by allowing the customer to assume the role of general contractor, thereby saving up to 25% of the cost of building a new house.

Owner Builder Solutions' homes are constructed exclusively through a process known as Systems Building, or "conventional construction under factory controlled conditions." The Owner Builder Solutions home is not a modular or mobile home; rather, it employs the process of automating traditional home building methods. Utilizing advance AutoCAD technology, the home is "built" in a computer before the first piece of lumber is cut. Once the various components are constructed, the entire structure is shipped to the building site where it is assembled on the customer's foundation.

"Owner Builder Solutions assists homeowners with the most critical stages of home building—the foundation and structural framing phases," explains American Standard Building CEO James A. Lester. "These phases are often the most under-estimated aspect of the home building process, both in time and cost. Because the computer generates a very accurate materials take-off, we can guarantee the price of the materials for the structural framing and dry-in, something very few suppliers are willing to do."

The concept of the owner as builder has recently gained momentum with the advent of do-it-yourself television programs and the expansion of home improvement "super-stores" which tend to remove the mystery and apprehension of the home building process. Illustrating this trend is the fact that in 2000, more then 40% of all building permits were "pulled" in the name of the homeowner rather then a general contractor. Supported by the precision of computer design, "owner builder" service programs like Owner Builder Solutions provide a more affordable way for homeowners to build their own new home.

Owner Builder Solutions excels in this growing market because of its systematic approach to the entire process, enabling the homeowner to confidently take charge of their home building project. An Owner Builder Solutions account executive is available to work with the homeowner through the entire planning process and beyond, offering invaluable guidance and tools. For instance, the Line Item Cost Break Down computer application allows the homeowner to keep track of the entire cost of the project on one single form.

The client first works with the experienced architectural design staff to either select or custom design their house plans. Once the blueprints are finalized, the planning process concludes with the selection of subcontractors and the gathering of bids for the other materials and labor required to complete the home. Once all building costs are estimated, the customer is ready to make final submission for his construction loan.

Through relationships with the nation's leading construction lending institutions, Owner Builder Solutions offers 100% construction financing for every aspect of the home building project. In most situations, out of pocket expenses total only $800 to $1200. Additionally, homeowners may not have to make construction loan payments while their new home is being built. The Systems Building process is especially popular with financial institutions because its small margin of error significantly enhances the customer's chances of success.

"Owner Builder Solutions provides the ideal 'move-up' opportunity for customers who are hesitant to purchase a pre-owned home," Mr. Lester explains. "In many cases, the traditional three closing 'land-construction-permanent' financing process can be combined into a single closing 'construction-to-permanent' (CTP) mortgage. The entire process makes new home building easier and more affordable than ever."

About American Standard Building
American Standard Building Systems, Inc. was formed in 1968 to construct high quality homes under controlled conditions. Since then, the company has built and delivered more then 38,000 housing units to customers through out the United States and aboard. Located in south-western Virginia, American Standard Building continues to flourish despite a struggling local economy, providing much needed jobs for Martinsville and the surrounding area.

Clean, Restore, Beautify & Protect Your Deck in Just One Day

Clean, Restore, Beautify & Protect Your Deck in Just One Day.

Somerset, NJ (PREWB) June 2, 2021 -- Have the long months of winter taken a toll on your deck? Is it dirty, mildew-stained, gray or weathered? Don’t worry. It’s easy to clean, restore, beautify & protect your deck in just one day.

Just follow these simple steps from the experts at Wolmanâ Wood Care Products:
In the Morning- Clean & Restore: Clean away dirt and gray weathered wood with an acid-free, biodegradable deck cleaner, like Wolman DeckBriteâ. DeckBrite is tough on ground-in dirt, mildew and algae stains, yet it’s gentle to handle and safe to use near grass, plants or shrubs. Its fast-acting foaming action loosens and lifts dirt, stains and weathered-gray discoloration in 10 minutes or less. And unlike chlorine bleach, which can actually degrade the structure of the wood, DeckBrite’s oxygen-activated formula cleans and restores the wood to its original, like-new look without whitening or damaging the wood surface. Protective finishes will adhere better and last longer.

In the Afternoon- Beautify & Protect: After you’ve cleaned your deck, keep it looking beautiful for years with just one coat of quick-drying Wolman RainCoatâ Tinted Water Repellent. Unlike other oil-base deck finishes, RainCoat’s waterborne formula can be applied to damp surfaces, so you can apply it the same day you clean. It’s available in four sheer, natural wood shades to help you achieve any look you desire. And just one coat of RainCoat will help block UV graying, resist ugly mildew stains, and provide guaranteed protection against water damage for three years! RainCoat also comes in a totally clear formula that allows wood to gray naturally.

The Next Morning: Bring out your patio furniture and enjoy your deck this spring – and, for many seasons to come.

Swiss Watch Company Frédérique Constant Celebrates its New Headquarters in Plan-les-Ouates, Genève

Frédérique Constant, a company that manufactures Swiss watches, celebrated its "first stone setting" ceremony for its new headquarters in Plan-les-Ouates, Genève. The project began in Autumn 2003 and the expected completion date is Nov. 1, 2005.

Plan-les-Ouates, Genève (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 1, 2021 -- Frédérique Constant, a company that specializes in making Swiss watches, celebrated its "first stone setting" ceremony for its new headquarters in Plan-les-Ouates, Genève. The ceremony, which took place at the company's new site, featured a speech by owners and founders Peter Stas and Aletta Stas-Bax and their son, Pieter-Jan Constant Stas. Guests included Mr. Carlo Lamprecht, Councillor of the Republic and Canton of Geneva and Mr. Michel Favre, Secretary-General of Plan-les-Ouates.


During the ceremony, Mr. Stas announced that his son, Pieter-Jan Constant, would be setting specially selected items in the excavation on the main floor of what will be the new Frédérique Constant headquarters. Pieter-Jan Constant, who carries the “Constant” name as fifth descendent of Constant Stas, placed the following items in the excavation: one of the first prototypes of the FC-910 Manufacture Caliber and a copy of the business plan that has been the base of the success of the Swiss watch company.

With the strong growth of the company, Frédérique Constant (www.frederique-constant.com) has been looking for new premises since October 2003. In Genève Canton, the final conclusion was that constructing a new building was the most cost-efficient solution. After having completed the procedures to obtain the building permit, construction started immediately.

The project began in Autumn 2003, and the actual construction of the building began in late February 2005. The Swiss watch company is expected to move into the building by October 2005, and the expected completion date is Nov. 1, 2005. Mr. Stas says the company will strongly invest in new people and equipment. He says that in the short term, the company plans to hire 25-35 new people, bringing the total for the company to 70 persons.

The new headquarters will be the fourth location of Frédérique Constant in the past eight years. Before 1997, the company was located in an old farm in Troinex. In 1997, it moved to Carouge, which again became quickly too small and since 2000, it has been located on the fourth floor of a commercial building in Chêne-Bourg. By the end of 2003, it became clear that these premises would also become too small to accommodate a larger production.

“Clearly, this new factory in Plan-les-Ouates will enable us to better organize development and production of our calibres and watches,” said Mr. Stas.

The factory will house a total work and storage space of 3,200 square meters divided over four floors. The top floor will house management and support staff and the third floor will house the atelier. On the fourth floor, amongst other facilities, a 200 square meters conference room is planned to invite customers for presentations and training. Other relevant features are the two main conference rooms, the cafeteria and fitness room.

"While Frédérique Constant is heavily investing in this new building, the company will remain 100 percent committed to continue the successful strategy of offering Swiss Made watches with passion at sensible prices," Mr. Stas said. "With the slogan 'Live your passion,' we will continue development and production of exciting new collections. Our plans, including the recent acquisition of the Alpina watch brand (www.alpina-watches.com), give us strong confidence that we can continue our growth in the future."

Additional background information about the new Frédérique Constant building:
Total surface terrain: 6500 m²
Number of floors: 4
Total floor space: 3200 m²
Number of conference rooms: 3
Different specialisations: Calibre design and assembly
Number of departments: 6
Types of departments: Sales, Marketing, R & D, Production, Logistics, S.A.V.
Capacity: 70 employees short term, 100 employees mid term
1 Fitness room
2 Dressing rooms
1 Cafeteria with outside terrace

The Staten Island Real Estate Market Will Continue to Grow

Although Staten Island has been treated like the proverbial stepchild by New York City officials for many years, the success of its real estate market in the past decade has been a true Cinderella story. Residents of other boroughs who previously contended that Staten Island is not really part of New York are flocking there in droves. Companies, too, are establishing or increasing their presence and visibility on the island.

Staten Island, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 1, 2021 -- Naysayers, beware. As homeowners around the country lose sleep over the housing bubble, Staten Islanders are laughing all the way to the bank. Although Staten Island has been treated like the proverbial stepchild by New York City officials for many years, the success of its real estate market in the past decade has been a true Cinderella story. Residents of other boroughs who previously contended that Staten Island is not really part of New York are flocking there in droves. Companies, too, are establishing or increasing their presence and visibility on the island.

Elad Kushnir, a real estate expert and CEO of Best Home Properties, Inc., a Staten Island real estate development company, cites some interesting facts:

- In the past decade, Staten Island has had the highest population increase of all of NYC boroughs.

-The cost of living in Staten Island is the lowest of all NYC boroughs. This has and will continue to encourage increased migration into the island.

-The recent down-zoning of many Staten Island lands will decrease the supply of housing on the Island, consequently maintaining or even increasing home prices.

“I am confident that these factors will provide the market with sustaining power over a long period of time,” Kushnir says. In fact, Kushnir is so convinced of Staten Island's future success that he has increased his company's investment in the island. BHP recently acquired a plot of land on 120 Montgomery Ave. in Saint George. With the multi-million dollar renovation of the Staten Island Ferry, the neighborhood of Saint George, like the rest of the borough, is experiencing a sharp increase in property values. A fast, free and convenient commute to Manhattan is one important contributing factor in the rising of property prices in Saint George.

The plans for the Montgomery project include the development of three two-family townhouses. These houses will be built to suit the needs and lifestyles of the “Manhattanites” –those who live on the island but commute to Manhattan for work.

Salvadeo Associates Architects, one of Staten Island's leading architectural design firms, will lend their expertise to the design phase of this project. 120 Montgomery Ave. is now in its development and planning stage, with final architectural plans scheduled to be completed by the end of June 2005.

About Best Home Properties, Inc.:

Best Home Properties, Inc. (BHP) was established in 2002 by Elad Kushnir and Tal Goldstein, two seasoned veterans in the field of real estate. BHP specializes in acquiring, rehabilitating and reselling distressed properties. More information is available at www.besthomeproperties.com

About Elad Kushnir:

Elad Kushnir is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Best Home Properties, Inc. Additionally, Kushnir acts as the company's CFO, dealing with all aspects of financial management and planning for the company.

Prior to establishing Best Home Properties, Inc., Kushnir was the Manager of Online Development for the Isram Group of Companies, a multi-million dollar business headquartered in NYC, with operations on all six continents. During his three years at Isram, Kushnir oversaw the successful development and operational integration of three travel websites.

Kushnir received his Bachelor of Arts at Columbia University in New York City.

At the 350-room Crowne Plaza Hotel Hartford, J/Brice will design and renovate the public and prefunction space to create a contemporary upscale hotel that is in keeping with the new City Center and young business clientele who are contributing to Hartford’s new-found active nightlife. At this 18-floor hotel with 7000 square feet of meeting and event space. J/Brice was specifically awarded this contract to aid the Crowne Plaza in meeting the elevated expectations of Hartford’s growing marketplace.

At the Crowne Plaza Hotel Secaucus-Meadowlands, four miles from New York near Giants Stadium Meadowlands Sports Complex, plans call for an extreme makeover, elevating the property with high-end finishes. J/Brice will also reconfigure much of the public space to create Michael’s the hotel’s new restaurant and lounge.

In announcing the selection, Tony Gentile of Rosdev Group states, "Our goal is to maximize the potential in Connecticut’s capital region among its growing business travel and meeting market. In Secaucus, J/Brice is working with us to create a property that meets demand for upscale business and social events in this burgeoning region. Among all the firms competing for these projects, we selected J/Brice because its people demonstrated an appreciation for subtle local market differences, provided specific design solutions for each hotel, and prepared a detailed and realistic budget at the outset."

Says Jeff Ornstein, J/Brice founder and CEO, "Our ability to create unique experiences that are in concert with locale and market, has consistently won us hotel projects and the confidence of our clients in North America. More recently, we have found appreciation for our methods and design philosophies in Asia and the Middle East. Being a responsible hospitality designer requires the ability to unite visionary aesthetics with business acumen."

VideoRay Underwater Robot Aids United Nations in Tsunami Cleanup

Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) rushed to Phuket, Thailand with Expert Training

(PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- After the devastating Tsunami of December 26, 2004, it was clear that the destruction of human homes and lives was accompanied by significant damage to many of the region's natural resources, including coral reefs. The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS - www.unops.org ) is coordinating the UNDP Reef Recovery and Rehabilitation Project in Thailand, along with the Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC - http://www.pmbc.go.th/English/English.asp).

With the hazards and difficulties of extended human diving in this environment, a public tender was prepared to locate the best portable Remotely Operated Vehicle to assist divers and document the condition of reefs before and after reconstructions and to survey wreckage and debris in the water. UNOPS selected the VideoRay Pro III from VideoRay LLC, as the most proven, feature rich and cost-efficient ROV, and on April 15th an urgent purchase ordered was issued for one unit and training. Less than two weeks later the unit was in Bangkok, and within a month the training was completed.

Scott Bentley, the President of VideoRay LLC, and Steve Van Meter, the Hazardous Duty Robotics Specialist on leave from NASA, Kennedy Space Center, traveled to Phuket to train VideoRay operators including Niphon Phongsuwan, the primary Marine (coral reef) Biologist of PMBC, Lynsey Hill, the Technical Coordinator, Reef Recovery and Rehabilitation, Thailand, of UNOPS and David Marsden, a Professional diver for UNOPS. The three day training sessions included basic operations, maintenance including disassembly and reassembly of the unit, and operations from both piers and a large diving support vessel. "It is important for us to have the best scientific tools available to observe underwater specimens and activity" said Mr. Phongsuwan, describing the importance of the VideoRay to PMBC. "The video record and stills we capture with VideoRay let us document the status, growth, and change of living coral reefs."

"We need to get the tonnes of debris from houses, boats, and other man-made material which fell on the reefs removed as quickly and efficiently as we can, using mainly volunteer labor." Said Ms. Hill. "We're very excited about the use of VideoRay - a device that has no limits on depth, dive time, or the other physiological constraints we must live with when we dive. The VideoRay will check out sites before we dive them, and work alongside of divers during cleanups - saving us time and making us far safer and more efficient. And, with the ability to capture video and stills to our laptop computer, we'll have better documentation of our project."

Since the cost of the VideoRay was lower than anticipated for this capability, the UNOPS is considering purchasing additional accessories including a larger monitor, a water quality sensor and scanning sonar to make the underwater robot even more valuable to the project.

Complete Garage Door, Dallas/Fort Worth Texas Premier Garage Door Company, Blowing Away the Competition

Complete Garage Door of DFW, Texas, is blowing away the competition with quality service, and affordable prices.

(PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Complete garage Door opened it's doors in August of 1997. It has since grown into one of the most respected garage door companies in the Dallas/fort Worth area. Their highly trained, qualified technicians, along with their outstanding customer support, and low prices, are what separate them from the competition. As the owner of the company explains "I've worked for a lot of the larger garage door companies in the Dallas/Fort worth area over the years, and could never get used to the fact that they over-charge for everything. Some of them don't honor their warranties, and are only out to make a dollar. If people knew how much springs, rollers, and other parts really cost, they would be outraged at what they are being charged. I decided back in 1997 that I could offer customers the same products and warranties that larger companies offered, for a much lower price. We keep our advertising costs low, and pass this savings on to the customer. Our Customer Reviews speak for themselves."

Along with their low prices, Complete Garage Door offers a Best Price Guarantee. If you receive a lower bid from any other company, they will beat that price! How's that for Customer Service?
