Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. Expansion Moves Into Riverside and San Bernardino Counties

National Concrete Washout is servicing builders and contractors in fast growing California counties; Riverside and San Bernardino.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 31, 2021 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that National Concrete Washout, has recently begun distributing and servicing Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties of California.

Atlantic Concrete Washout, Inc., a start-up company specifically formed to distribute and service the CWS, began servicing Southeast Florida in the beginning of 2005 and has now expanded their operations into two fast growing California counties and doing business under the name, National Concrete Washout.

“Concrete Washout Systems has provided us with an excellent opportunity to expand our business. With this expansion we have become a truly national company,” stated Ted Honcharik, CEO of Atlantic Concrete Washout. “We are thrilled with the support we have received from CWS and excited about the potential for growth in the Southern California Market,” added Mr. Honcharik.

“Mr. Honcharik has done a phenomenal job in penetrating the stubborn Southeast Florida market for Concrete Washout Systems” stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “We believe with his assistance in Southern California, Concrete Washout Systems will continue to expand; providing critical and timely services to an exploding construction market,” added Mr. Mickelson.

CWS is currently seeking licensed partners in numerous markets across the nation. Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, Denver, Colorado and Southeast Florida and have recently signed license agreements for portions of Minnesota and Texas.

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

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

Restoring Antique Clawfoot Bathtubs

Antique clawfoot bathtubs and pedestal sinks are excellent candidates for refinishing versus buying new ones. The Pennock family of Longmont, CO saved thousands by hiring Miracle Method to refinish their antique bathroom fixtures.

(PRWEB) September 1, 2021 -- Mike and Amanda Pennock are die-hard do-it-yourselfers. They own a Victorian style home in Longmont, CO and have repainted the exterior, installed new appliances, and rebuilt the front porch. But when it came to redoing the bathroom with its time worn claw foot tub and pedestal sink, the Pennocks were stumped.

We love our clawfoot tub, but the porcelain surface was rough and the sink had chips in it. We could buy new ones, but it would cost us $4500 to $6500, said Amanda. It wasn’t only that a new tub and sink were expensive; they liked the style they had and would have to spend a lot of time finding an exact match.

The expense for new fixtures was beyond their budget. They knew they could save money doing their own tiling of the floor, replacing the vanity and wallpaper but what could they do about the tub and sink? Besides they also wanted a two-tone tub and brass feet.

They found their solution at an architectural salvage yard. Sitting in the center of a dozen very rough claw foots was a totally restored tub. The owner explained how it was restored. He had hired Brian Weber of Miracle Method, a professional surface restoration company to repair and refinish the inside and outside of the tub. It looked and felt like new and they were told the Miracle Method process worked on porcelain, ceramic tile, cultured marble and acrylic surfaces.

The Pennocks contacted Weber. Weber had not only restored a number of claw foot tubs, but also showed them how the Miracle Method process could be used restore their sink and update their Formica vanity top. The Pennocks wanted the tub white on the inside, red on the outside and with brass feet. Weber arranged to transport the tub and sink to his shop, as it is easier to do 360-degree jobs outside the smallish bathroom.

There was still plenty of DIY work to do while the tub was at Miracle Method, the Pennocks tore off the old wallpaper, repainted walls and tiled the floor. They worked quickly over a weekend as the tub restoration only took three days. The restored tub was returned and set in place. Mike installed new antique reproduction fixtures. Only the countertop remained. The Pennocks chose to have Miracle Method refinish the vanity to coordinate with the tub making removal and replacement of the Formica top unnecessary.

The end result is a restored bathroom that gives the Pennocks the Victorian look they wanted and the satisfaction and cost savings they were looking for. Refinishing the tub, sink and countertop cost less than $1000, far less than if they had purchased a new clawfoot tub, pedestal sink and removed and replaced the countertop.

Not every project has to be, or should be done yourself. There was no way the Pennocks could duplicate the smooth, durable surface Miracle Method provided. In addition Miracle Method offers a five-year warranty against peeling. And says Brian Weber, with the same proper care and maintenance recommended by new tub manufacturers (nonabrasive and bleach-free cleaners only), a refinished surface should last 10 to 15 years.

Miracle Method has been in business for more than 25 years and has grown to more than 100 franchisees like Weber’s. It is not just a process for antique tubs. Miracle Method surface refinishing has been used by millions of homeowners as well as major hotel chains including Hilton, Holiday Inn, Marriott and others. “When customers find out that Miracle Method is used by hotels like Bally’s in Las Vegas or the Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco, they appreciate the quality and durability of our product,” offered Weber.

Weber offered some advice to others looking to refinish tubs, tile or countertops "The key to a good refinishing job is the process of cleaning, preparing and bonding. These are the most important steps in order for the new finish to stick to the old surface. Miracle Method's success is directly related to our proprietary bonding agent that we have used for the past 25 years." Unlike some other refinishing companies or home DIY kits, Miracle Method does not use dangerous, toxic etching acids in the process.

Refinishing is a viable and affordable alternative to expensive tear out and replacement. “This project cost us far less than buying a new tub and sink. It also shortened the time it took to finish the bathroom. It’s amazing how bright and smooth the finish is,” says Mike.

Log Cabins: Getting More From Your Garden With Dunster House

Get more from your garden by taking advantage of the space available and utilising it more effectively. Suggestions for making a garden more practical, enjoyable and attractive include: log cabins, garden offices, climbing frames and deck kits. The UK company, Dunster House (www.dhleisureandgarden.com), offers a wide range of these self assembly garden products at affordable prices.

(PRWEB) August 30, 2021 -- When we think of gardening, we tend to think of all the hassles of mowing the lawn, weeding, and watering the plants, but a garden is much more than that. Gardens should be viewed as a centre of relaxation and enjoyment for you and your friends and family. Maximise the potential of a garden by utilising the space, and taking advantage of the possibilities. A garden has many uses, both practical and leisure.

The company, Dunster House, has come up with some ideas on how you can use your garden more effectively:

- Log Cabins
With house prices constantly rising, a garden office or log cabin would solve any issues of space for much cheaper than moving or the cost of an extension. Log cabins can have many functions, such as: storage, gym, games room, or somewhere to relax.

- Garden Offices
A garden office offers the comfort and flexibility of working at home, but still allows you to separate business from pleasure. An office right on your doorstep is convenient. Situated away from the rest of the home you are easily able to escape from the office, and whilst at work you are free from any distractions in the house.

- Climbing Frames
There are growing concerns about children's health, and a need to encourage them to be more active. Playing outdoors can help them to develop and improve their health and fitness. Make exercise fun by creating an exciting adventure playground in your garden with a climbing frame. Keep children safe and free from boredom.

- Deck Kits
Building a patio area in the garden creates a surface for barbecues, entertaining guests, or a place to relax comfortably. Decking is a quick and easy way to build an attractive patio.

There are many companies in the UK specialising in garden products, one of which is Dunster House (www.dhleisureandgarden.com). They supply a range of easy to assemble items for the garden, all at competitive prices. Items vary to suit you, your garden, and your budget.

New Software Provides Plant Engineering and Facility Management Groups a Robust Paperless Inspection and Reporting Solution

Comprehensive, yet intuitive software provides an industrial grade replacement to traditional paper based inspection systems.

Hayward, Calif. (PRWEB) August 30, 2021 --Vorpalware, a software development group focused on mobility solutions for business, today announced the release of the PlantLog software solution, which provides a complete end to end paperless inspection and reporting tool for accurately collecting and analyzing equipment status readings and other facility observations.

The PlantLog solution aims to dramatically improve efficiency by reducing the time needed to perform inspections and the administrative work of archiving, retrieving and compiling collected logs as well as providing a simplistic yet insightful means of visually trending data to assist with critical decision making for maintenance and process improvement.

“The emergence of the global economy and a trend of operational budget reductions has been putting pressure on facility managers to identify areas that could be modified in order to obtain greater optimization and efficiency” said Jim Duffy, President and Founder of Vorpalware. “While a standard paper based inspection system satisfies the need of taking actual readings, it does little to ensure the data is complete and accurate and provides no means of analyzing historical data to locate potential bottlenecks, redundancies or other areas that could be enhanced by altering its process.”

Groups can now replace traditional paper and hand written inspection systems by using rugged barcode enabled PDA’s that identify equipment and present the operator with a list of readings to take in a clear and concise manner while ensuring readings are taken within normal operational thresholds. Engineers can then view a component’s complete history with just a few mouse clicks, filter the inspections by a given date range, generate graphical charts and reports or export the data as a standard spreadsheet for sharing with external parties or regulatory agencies.

“We have been a part of the Vorpalware pilot program for over a year now and have found it to be a compelling alternative to our archaic paper based setup.” Said Neal Pearson, Engineering Manager at the Children’s Hospital of Central California. “The ability to trend recorded metrics provides us with valuable insight into our current and future plant conditions while the ability to assemble logs has significantly reduced administrative time in preparing JCAHO report submissions.”

The PlantLog product includes the following capabilities:

* Automatic equipment identification through barcode labels scanned from PDA
* Date, time and operators name are automatically attached to each inspection record
* Optional notes can be entered for each inspection.
* Warnings alert operator when a reading was taken outside of optimal ranges.
* Readings outside of optimal ranges are automatically displayed in red when viewing historical data
* User permissions feature to designate who can edit the inspection dataset, view historical data or perform actual inspections.
* Networked environment to allow multiple users to view inspection data
* Print out historical inspection data or export to Microsoft Excel
* Filter historical data by any given date range
* Create and memorize graphical charts for data analysis
* Quickly find all instances of a given value for an individual reading

Vorpalware provides PlantLog as a complete turn key solution that includes all PDA hardware, barcode labels, software and installation support. No other external dependences are required including database servers and reporting tools, which are integrated in the PlantLog software.

Pricing and Availability:
The PlantLog solution is immediately available direct from Vorpalware and is licensed on a ‘per site’ basis. Licenses are $5,695 for commercial users and $4,556 for non profit and government entities, plus the cost of PDA terminals at ~$800 each.
Multi license discounts are available as well as an evaluation package by request.

Phoenix Real Estate Prices Rise 47% in the Past Year, Despite Fears of a Real Estate Slowdown

Greater Phoenix real estate prices rise by 47% in 2005. This increase is more than triple the national average and indicates that the Phoenix area continues to be a popular location for home buyers. In the face of a speculative real-estate "bubble," prices continue to increase. Can it continue?

Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) August 30, 2021 -- Phoenix area real estate prices continued rising in 2005, posting a robust 47 percent gain over last year, seemingly contradicting fears that the real estate market has peaked. This large increase is more than triple the national average, and confirms that the greater Phoenix, Arizona region is still a very desirable place for people to live.

These numbers stem from a recent survey released by the National Association of Realtors. The survey concludes the typical US home price increased 13.6 percent, making the greater Phoenix area 47 percent gain (culled from the same survey) seem almost larger than life. The figures presented reflect changes from the second quarter of last year to the same period this year.

But what about this "real estate bubble" we keep hearing about? Real Estate prices are largely fueled by supply and demand, and the numbers overwhelmingly indicate an overabundance of buyers competing for available homes. Will prices keep rising like they have?

There may be signs the market is peaking.

This past July, area home prices posted their smallest month-to-month increase so far this year. In fact, the July increase is a third of what it was earlier in the year. According to the Arizona Real Estate Center at Arizona State University, the median price of a pre-owned home reached $255,000 in July. That's only a 2 percent increase. Earlier this year, area home prices posted month to month increases of 6 to 7 percent.

This coincides with recent predictions by industry experts who say price increases, while remaining at strong levels, should start to slow down.

This sentiment is repeated by Phoenix area real estate experts as well. Scottsdale realtor Echo Farrell stated, "I’ve seen a small increase in the time it takes a home to sell. It seems the bidding wars, where buyers simply lined up and made offers, is starting to slow down a bit."

This isn’t cause for alarm, however, as Farrell is quick to point out: "There’s still a tremendous demand for area homes" notes Farrell "but maybe we’re seeing the end of the incredible price jumps. Which is good in a way – a strong yet stable market is always desirable for buyers and sellers alike."

For additional information on the Scottsdale area real estate market, contact Echo Farrell, or visit http://www.azsonorahomes.com.

Echo Farrell has lived in the Scottsdale area for 17 years, and has her finger on the pulse of the region when it comes to real estate trends. As an experienced realtor she is an expert on the Phoenix and Scottsdale real estate markets. She works with both buyers and sellers to help them achieve their real estate dreams.

Sanuvox Releases the Very First Combination HEPA Air Filter / UV Air Purifier That Can Be Used as a Duct Mounted or Stand-Alone System

The Sanuvox HFX HEPA Filter is 99.97% effective, trapping particles down to .3 microns in size. Air purification is done through Germicidal Photo-Oxidation. The air is pulled through the UV Reflecting Box where the air is bombarded with UVC & UVV light destroying biological & chemical contaminants such as mold, bacteria, viruses, VOCs, solvents, cigarette smoke and thousands of other air-born contaminants.

(PRWEB) August 31, 2021 -- The Sanuvox HFX HEPA Filter / UV Air Purifier is specifically designed for applications that require air filtration and purification.

The HFX is equipped with a 2” pre-filter and a 2” HEPA Filter that is 99.97% effective, trapping particles down to 0.3 microns in size. Air purification is accomplished with a high intensity 19 mm. UVC/UVV Quartz Lamp which destroys biological and chemical contaminants.

Sanuvox's patented UV system uses a proprietary UVC/UVV 19 mm. Pure Fused Quartz 'J' Lamp installed parallel to the air flow in an Aluminum Reflecting Box for increased 'dwell time' and reflectivity. The Germicidal Photo-Oxidation process bombards the air, destroying biological and chemical contaminants. The air then passes through the pre-filter and finally the HEPA filter removing particulates down to 0.3 microns in size.

HEPA Filtration has been gaining in popularity; many applications are requiring HEPA Filters to trap the particulates in the air. Ultraviolet Air Purification has been proven to be the most effective means in destroying the biological and chemical contaminants that are much too small to be captured by filtration. The two technologies compliment each other, successfully combining HEPA filtration with Ultraviolet UVC/UVV purification resulting in a single unit that is highly effective in trapping particles in the air, while destroying contaminants such as viruses, mold, bacteria, cigarette smoke, odors and VOCs.

The two-speed (200/300 cfm) unit can be used as a Stand-Alone purifier/filter or installed onto the ventilation system. The HEPA filter has a life expectancy of 3 years and the UV Lamp and all replacement Lamps are warranted for 3 years.

“We are excited to offer a turn-key solution for many IAQ needs. One unit that can be used as a stand-alone filter / purifier with no ducting, continually destroying viruses, mold, germs, cigarette smoke, VOCs, as well as removing particulates from the air, or the unit can be installed onto the ventilation system for a whole-system treatment.

Log Cabins: Getting More From Your Garden With Dunster House (www.dhleisureandgarden.com)

Get more from your garden by taking advantage of the space available and utilising it more effectively. Suggestions for making a garden more practical, enjoyable and attractive include: log cabins, garden offices, climbing frames and deck kits. The UK company, Dunster House (www.dhleisureandgarden.com), offers a wide range of these self assembly garden products at affordable prices.

(PRWEB) August 29, 2021 -- When we think of gardening, we tend to think of all the hassles of mowing the lawn, weeding, and watering the plants, but a garden is much more than that. Gardens should be viewed as a centre of relaxation and enjoyment for you and your friends and family. Maximise the potential of a garden by utilising the space, and taking advantage of the possibilities. A garden has many uses, both practical and leisure.

The company, Dunster House, has come up with some ideas on how you can use your garden more effectively:

- Log Cabins
With house prices constantly rising, a garden office or log cabin would solve any issues of space for much cheaper than moving or the cost of an extension. Log cabins can have many functions, such as: storage, gym, games room, or somewhere to relax.

- Garden Offices
A garden office offers the comfort and flexibility of working at home, but still allows you to separate business from pleasure. An office right on your doorstep is convenient. Situated away from the rest of the home you are easily able to escape from the office, and whilst at work you are free from any distractions in the house.

- Climbing Frames
There are growing concerns about children's health, and a need to encourage them to be more active. Playing outdoors can help them to develop and improve their health and fitness. Make exercise fun by creating an exciting adventure playground in your garden with a climbing frame. Keep children safe and free from boredom.

- Deck Kits
Building a patio area in the garden creates a surface for barbecues, entertaining guests, or a place to relax comfortably. Decking is a quick and easy way to build an attractive patio.

There are many companies in the UK specialising in garden products, one of which is Dunster House (www.dhleisureandgarden.com). They supply a range of easy to assemble items for the garden, all at competitive prices. Items vary to suit you, your garden, and your budget.

Patented Stack Technology Cuts Fuel Bills for Natural Gas and Fuel Oil

By utilizing Stanlin Energy Group’s environmentally friendly patented technology, business owners can see a dramatic reduction in their fuel bills.

(PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- By utilizing Stanlin Energy Group's environmentally friendly patented technology, business owners can see a dramatic reduction in their fuel bills. Typical savings may amount to between 7 percent and 20 percent on power boilers and between 15 percent and 29 percent or more on atmospheric boilers, furnaces and hot water heaters, according to Rick Creighton, president, of the Stanlin Energy Group based out of North Providence, RI.

Energy savings makes sense, especially in these days when energy costs are dramatically rising. Recently, crude oil prices hit over $66 a barrel and, according to the August 7, Houston Chronicle, natural gas prices are expected to increase by 18 percent or more this heating season.

“We have found a way to help save energy in these unpredictable times at a reasonable cost,” Creighton says.

Typical payback period for the system is between 24 and 36 months. Creighton says. “The payback period may even be reduced with today's ever increasing and unpredictable fuel costs.”

“Our technology is simple,” says Al Greene, director of field operations. “There are no moving parts; it uses no fuel; it is maintenance free; and it comes with a 10-year warranty. The technician installing the system tunes the stack to your boiler, creating a permanently balanced venting system. This allows the flue stack to work with the heating equipment rather then against it. The result is optimum heating efficiency."

The Stanlin Energy system controls what happens in the flue stack to make the equipment run near its shop-certified rating, Creighton says.

By using thermodynamic rather than mechanical controls of stack gases, the Stanlin Energy regulator creates a positive stack pressure. This provides more efficient combustion, reduced boiler run times and reduces maintenance and fuel consumption, Creighton says.

“Since the Stanlin Energy system works with the current boiler, there is no need for expensive boiler replacement. Life expectancy of the system is over 30 years,” Greene says.

And the technology is environmentally friendly, in many cases lowering the total tonage of emissions released to the atmosphere due to a more complete burn of the fuel, according to Greene.

To learn more about how the Stanlin Energy Technology reduces fuel consumption or to see if your boiler qualifies, check out: www.stanlinenergy.com/info or contact Al Greene at (281) 343-0857.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (PRWEB) August 29, 2021 -- Commercial Contractor Bob Moore Construction Company has completed construction of the Riverpark 300 commercial building and finish-out of Miller Electric’s regional distribution and training center in Fort Worth, Texas.

Miller Electric consolidated operations in Houston and Dallas Texas into a single distribution and training center in a 55,000 SF space in the newly constructed Riverpark 300 building. The Miller Electric finish-out was built in conjunction with the building itself.

The 300,000 SF Riverpark 300 commercial building is located in Northeast Fort Worth, and is owned by commercial developer Seefried Properties in Grapevine, Texas. Bob Moore Construction was the General Contractor, Teague Nall & Perkins in Fort Worth, Texas performed Civil Engineering duties and Realacorp America in Atlanta, Georgia managed A/E and structural design.

Riverpark 300 was built to accommodate up to four tenants with separate entrances at each of the building's corners. This 300,000 SF commercial building features 88 loading doors set up in cross-dock configuration and a 32' clear height ceiling. The Miller Electric Distribution Center / Training Center includes a warehouse and distribution area with 18 loading doors. Also provided is management office space, an employee break room and an elaborate training facility where 450 distributors each year will receive classroom and hands-on training.

"This project went smoothly all the way through," said Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction company. "Miller Electric was clear on what they needed and Seefried Properties is always great to work with. Miller got involved fairly early in the construction process, so we were able to deliver their area and the entire building on the original schedule."

"Kyle and site superintendent Jerry Clem were just outstanding," said Carter. "The home office likes the look of our building and the fact that we got in so quickly. Because Kyle and Jerry helped us get the warehouse racking installed and the floor striping painted so fast, we saved more than 120 man-hours and started operations almost immediately. Working with Bob Moore Construction was just outstanding - we couldn't have asked for more."

Approximately 245,000 SF of commercial space is still available in Riverpark 300. For more information about this space, contact Bob Rice with Seefried Properties at (817) 481-9925.

State Creates Central Data Base to Track Manufactured Housing Tax Information

Under a new state law -- supported by the manufactured housing industry -- the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs will maintain a central data base where tax assessor-collectors can go to determine if all taxes have been paid before an ownership change occurs.

Austin, Texas (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 26, 2021 -- A new Texas law -- supported by the manufactured housing industry -- will provide more safeguards for consumers as well as benefit state taxing authorities by creating a "one-stop resource" for manufactured home title searches.

Under the newly enacted reforms, tax assessor-collectors can go to a central data base for all tax information on a home to determine if all taxes have been paid before an ownership change occurs. The data base will be maintained by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs www.tdhca.state.tx.us.

There are about 760,000 manufactured home owners in Texas. About 110,000 of those homes have been declared to be real property and are taxed as an improvement to the land on which the home is located.

"Previously, this information was available only on a county-by-county basis," said Kevin Ketchum, executive director of the Texas Manufactured Housing Association www.texasmha.com. "There is now one place to go to determine if any tax liens exist."

Consumers gained additional protection with a requirement that tax collection on resale of manufactured homes rest with the persons actually owing the tax. In the recent past, taxing authorities sought payment from unsuspecting buyers instead of those who created the tax debt.

"We support the collection of all property taxes," Ketchum said. "We just believe that they should be paid by the people who owe them."

The Legislature also added requirements that all new salespersons receive ethics and regulations training as part of securing an initial license and standardized the consumer protection disclosure form.

"These legislative mandates further strengthen the decisive changes taken in 2003, when the manufactured housing act was overhauled," Ketchum noted. "We believe these reforms will trigger a turn-around in the state's only unsubsidized, affordable housing market."

Timber Frame Construction Used to Solve Tsunami Disaster Crisis

The British Red Cross are using UK ‘Off-Site’ Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) techniques as part of the housing reconstruction programme in the tsunami-stricken Maldives. Working with leading Timber Frame company Benfield ATT, the British Red Cross are using factory-produced Kit Homes as construction site offices in the disaster area.

(PRWEB) August 26, 2021 -- The British Red Cross is helping people in the Maldives recover from the tsunami by re-establishing their livelihoods, part of which involves building houses that can withstand future disasters. In all, the British Red Cross - part of the world’s largest humanitarian organisation - is building over 700 houses on the six of the worst affected islands.

There is no doubt that these houses are badly needed. When the tsunami hit the Maldives 2,000 houses were completely destroyed, leaving 10,000 people homeless. Mike Goodhand, head of logistics at the British Red Cross, who recently returned from the Maldives, said “Every single person we have talked to said that their starting point is the house. They couldn’t begin to think about opening up a carpenter’s shop or start working on their land until they have somewhere safe to live.”

Six Benfield ATT DiRReP (Disaster Relief, Relocatable or Permanent) housing kits, which comprise both open and closed-cell Timber Frame Panels, will be erected to serve as construction site offices on the islands (see - www.benfieldatt.co.uk/disaster_relief_housing).

Developed and manufactured in-house by South Wales-based Benfield ATT, the two-bedroom units are designed to be ‘erected by three unskilled labourers, in two days’ and include a studio living area, kitchenette and separate shower room and toilet facilities. The fully-insulated Kits come complete with foundations, double-glazed windows, ventilation, plumbing and electrical harnessing, together with all the tools, fixings and sealants required. The units can be extended and converted to permanent housing when required, or dismantled and relocated elsewhere.

Paul Tappin, Benfield ATT Technical Sales Manager commented “Timber Frame is ideally suited to this kind of emergency-response situation. Within two weeks from Order, we had the first Flat-Pack home containerised for shipping and heading their way – both our Technical and Manufacturing teams have responded to the urgent situation brilliantly, without any delay to other client projects.”

Timber Frame could provide an excellent starting-point for instant regeneration in disaster-affected communities. MD of Benfield ATT Professor Michael Benfield suggests that this is a major step forward for society, commenting “The uptake of Timber Frame can significantly reduce our impact upon Climate Change. By minimising carbon emissions and ‘locking-up’ the carbon, we hope that climate-linked weather disasters are reduced for future generations. This isn’t going to happen overnight, but the British Red Cross have made a small step in the right direction.”

Positive News for House Sellers

After trying to purchase a house and experiencing the wrath of some none to pleasant estate agents, Essex based businessman, Mark Coker, decided it was time for action - to help other house sellers and save them cash.

(PRWEB) August 26, 2021 -- Houseseller sick of spending thousands in agents’ commission are set to benefit from a revolutionary website which will take the fuss, expense and stress out of buying and selling properties.

After trying to purchase a house and experiencing the wrath of some none to pleasant estate agents, Essex based businessman, Mark Coker, decided it was time for action.

“During the purchase of a house, I experienced some unpleasant attitudes from a couple of estate agents and on both occasions was gazumped,” Mark explains.

“I looked around for alternatives to buying through agents and found these were limited.

“It appeared to me that most industries have a range of choices for the consumer, for example going on holiday you can use an agent for the full all-inclusive deal or just book a flight with a low cost airline. When selling a house it is an agent or nothing.”

So, instead of giving up on his dreams of buying the perfect home, the 35-year-old decided to set up a website to end the nightmares of stressed homebuyers everywhere.

And the fruit of his labours, www.pointblankproperty.com, offers a viable, low cost, value for money alternative to buying and selling through estate agents.

“Pointblankproperty is offering people a good value choice in the market place. It is not about competing against agents; agents are as welcome as anyone to advertise on our website if they choose to do so,” Mark says.

After registering details on the site, and for a flat fee of £10, sellers can create their own personal adverts for up to five properties, attaching a description and photographs for each.

Once the advert is added to the www.pointblankproperty.com database, it can be immediately viewed by potential buyers for eight weeks.

Users of the site are given a password protected account and potential buyers can email enquiries about the property via the website, which is forwarded on to the seller.

The website charges nothing in commission and instead aims to put buyers back in control.

“People have a choice, they can pay several thousand pounds to sell through an agent or they can advertise in the classifieds of a local paper,” adds Mark.

“But where else but www.pointblankproperty.com will they get global coverage for a £10 one off fee?

“No commission, no seller’s fees, no cost to the purchaser, password protected accounts without the seller’s identity being revealed and enquiries forwarded from http://www.pointblankproperty.com/, for the safety of all.”

Patented Stack Technology Cuts Fuel Bills for Natural Gas and Fuel Oil

By utilizing Stanlin Energy Group’s environmentally friendly patented technology, business owners can see a dramatic reduction in their fuel bills.

(PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- By utilizing Stanlin Energy Group's environmentally friendly patented technology, business owners can see a dramatic reduction in their fuel bills. Typical savings may amount to between 7 percent and 20 percent on power boilers and between 15 percent and 29 percent or more on atmospheric boilers, furnaces and hot water heaters, according to Rick Creighton, president, of the Stanlin Energy Group based out of North Providence, RI.

Energy savings makes sense, especially in these days when energy costs are dramatically rising. Recently, crude oil prices hit over $66 a barrel and, according to the August 7, Houston Chronicle, natural gas prices are expected to increase by 18 percent or more this heating season.

“We have found a way to help save energy in these unpredictable times at a reasonable cost,” Creighton says.

Typical payback period for the system is between 24 and 36 months. Creighton says. “The payback period may even be reduced with today's ever increasing and unpredictable fuel costs.”

“Our technology is simple,” says Al Greene, director of field operations. “There are no moving parts; it uses no fuel; it is maintenance free; and it comes with a 10-year warranty. The technician installing the system tunes the stack to your boiler, creating a permanently balanced venting system. This allows the flue stack to work with the heating equipment rather then against it. The result is optimum heating efficiency."

The Stanlin Energy system controls what happens in the flue stack to make the equipment run near its shop-certified rating, Creighton says.

By using thermodynamic rather than mechanical controls of stack gases, the Stanlin Energy regulator creates a positive stack pressure. This provides more efficient combustion, reduced boiler run times and reduces maintenance and fuel consumption, Creighton says.

“Since the Stanlin Energy system works with the current boiler, there is no need for expensive boiler replacement. Life expectancy of the system is over 30 years,” Greene says.

And the technology is environmentally friendly, in many cases lowering the total tonage of emissions released to the atmosphere due to a more complete burn of the fuel, according to Greene.

Paint and Wallcoverings Industry Grows to $9 Billion Market, According to New Report

The market for residential paints and wall coverings has maintained continuous growth in 2004. New study finds that marketers are looking outside the paint to build brand image.

New York, August 23 (PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- Piggybacking on an upbeat construction and remodeling market, the market for residential paints and wall coverings has maintained continuous growth and has exceeded $9 billion, according to The U.S. Market for Paint and Wallcoverings, a new report from Specialists in Business Information (SBI), a division of MarketResearch.com.

The home paint market is crowded, so to stand out, marketers have begun to look outside the paint can to build brand image. Convenient packaging has been a factor in product differentiation, especially for the DIY users—an example being the all-in-one paint can and roller tray option.

And, as with purveyors of most other consumer goods, paint marketers are starting to hitch their wagons to popular culture to build brand image and increase product awareness. Manufacturers have entered into licensing agreements with popular home improvement shows, associations, and historic monuments, such as ICI Paints’ alliance with This Old House Ventures, Inc., to produce a new line of paints under the ‘This Old House’ name.

“Home make-over television shows have given a lift to the paint industry,” said Don Montuori, publisher of SBI. “While most homeowners will never experience a team of professional designers and a camera crew invading and remodeling their house, many have been inspired to spruce up the homestead by these shows, and one of the most accessible jobs is giving rooms a new coat of paint, or putting up new wallpaper.”

The U.S. Market for Paint and Wallcoverings presents an in-depth analysis of products and manufacturers in the market. It analyzes the paint and wall coverings market as one that comprises exterior and interior painting, interior/exterior wood staining, ceramic tiles, wood panelling and wallpapers. Key issues and trends affecting the overall market have been outlined, different product categories have been identified, and a profile of the paint consumer developed.

America’s #1 Builder, D.R. Horton, to Participate in Eliant’s Revolutionary Customer Experience Program

Eliant's “New-Home Customer Experience Management System”™ is revolutionizing the building industry's focus on home buyer satisfaction.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- D.R. Horton, Inc., the largest homebuilder in the U.S. three years running with $10.8 billion in revenue and 45,263 homes sold in 2004, has signed on to participate in Eliant’s nationally acclaimed “New-Home Customer Experience Management System”™. This move signifies D.R. Horton’s commitment to offering homebuyers a piece of the “American Dream” and equating high quality homes with a quality homebuyer experience.

Based on 22 years of homebuyer and homeowner survey results, Eliant has determined that the ‘quality’ of a home is no longer the singular driving force behind homebuyer satisfaction and future referrals. “The key to future referrals from delighted homeowners,” said Bob Mirman, Eliant founder and CEO, “is not simply the quality of the home but the nature of the customer’s experience.” Eliant’s New-Home Customer Experience Management System™ provides residential builders with a system to create, manage, and control their customer’s entire experience.

“D.R. Horton’s remarkable focus on quality has earned them an extraordinary reputation in the home building industry,” continued Mirman. “We are honored to assist them in developing cutting-edge systems to ensure consistent, memorable customer experiences.”

Elements of The New-Home Customer Experience Management System are being used by Eliant’s top ranked builders to create loyal home buyers by systematically managing each home buyer’s experience.

“It’s not just about customer satisfaction or a quality home anymore,” states Alex Roqueta, President of Eliant. “The top builders are already building a quality product. However, a quality experience resides in the eyes of the buyer and can be totally managed by the builder to create a positive, memorable experience – or an ordinary, uninspiring one.”

Donald R. Horton established a small construction business in 1978 in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. Now D.R. Horton operates 53 divisions in 63 metropolitan markets across the US. As America’s largest builder, based on domestic homebuilding revenues, homes sold, and homes closed, D.R. Horton is the first homebuilding company in the world to sell more than 45,000 homes and close more than 43,000 homes in a single year. Posting a 24% increase in sales in 2004, D.R. Horton projects further growth with goals of 50,000 homes sold and $12 billion in revenue for 2005.

Founded in 1984 by CEO Bob Mirman, Eliant conducts over 400,000 homebuyer surveys annually, utilizing its cutting-edge tracking and information management systems to provide builders with timely, actionable and strategic Satisfaction Solutions™. Eliant’s 250 builder clients include some of the most sophisticated firms in the country, including Lennar Family of Builders, D.R. Horton, Standard Pacific Homes, Pardee Homes, Shea Homes, John Laing Homes, and William Lyon Homes. For more information, visit www.eliant.com.

American School of Gas Measurement Technology Gets a New Logo in Celebration of 40 Years of Industry Service

Association Publishers develops a new logo for the American School of Gas Measurement Technology.

Houston, Texas (PRWEB via PressReleaseHelp) August 24, 2021 -- Commemorating 40 Years of Gas Industry Training, the American School of Gas Measurement Technology recently unveiled a new logo. The school, scheduled for September 19th – 22nd, 2005 at the Marriott Westchase Hotel in Houston, Texas, is busily preparing the 135 distinct classes and hands-on training involving everything from basic measurement theory to current topics that include: the Fundamentals of LNG, Importance of Hydrocarbon Dew Points, and Ethernet Radio Communications.

Created by Association Publishers, the logo is designed to simplify and contemporize the ASGMT branding in the natural gas industry. Lyle Johnson, Creative Director for Association Publishers, stated that the "ASGMT logo is the result of many man-hours of creative development which included 32 distinct creative design paths." The logo chosen for the school incorporates a simplified character set with an integrated Natural Gas Flame to represent the industry the ASGMT serves.

Out of this one design 4 different variations were developed to allow the school to use their new logo with or with out the "Anniversary" banner and with or without the supporting text. In this way the ASGMT can easily use the logo on letterhead, brochures, promotional specialties and supporting collateral.

Rusty Woomer, the 2005 General Chairman, stated "The new ASGMT logo not only marks our 40th anniversary but also reflects upon our past and future. The ASGMT long recognized that there was a real need for regular educational schools for those engaged in the field of gas measurement and related disciplines. Like the preverbal three-legged stool, ASGMT stands on an educational stool whose legs are classes, lectures and hands-on, exhibits, and plant tours. While we continuously refine the elements of the school, the principal tenet, which is education, has remained unchanged and will continue to remain unchanged. This new logo seeks to reflect our commitment to natural gas industry and training."

Mark Slusher, General Manager for Association Publishers commented, "We're excited to be a part of this important milestone in the ASGMT history. The school which started in 1966, has continued to grow and evolve over the years primarily due to its easy international access for Latin American attendees and the General Committee's drive to constantly evaluate and improve the educational mix of the school."

Drawing approximately 1000 attendees annually, the ASGMT serves as one of the largest not-for-profit training schools in the natural gas industry. Held at the Marriott Westchase Hotel, in Houston, Texas, the school is scheduled for September 19th – 22nd, 2005. Considering the pre-registration fee for the 2005 school is only $95 USD, the ASGMT is an excellent training value.

To learn how you can attend the ASGMT, register via the web at www.asgmt.com, or via the following: The American School of Gas Measurement Technology, PO Box 3991, Houston, Texas 77253-3991.

Commercial Real Estate Investment Bank Overviews How to Choose a Capital Provider and Navigate Commercial Capital Markets

Leading commercial real estate investment bank, Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), identifies considerations for commercial real estate borrowers to think about when choosing a capital provider.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) August 23, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com -- Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, explains how to best navigate the commercial capital market to choose a capital provider.

Financing a commercial real estate transaction is no longer a simple matter. Now, there are many considerations that must be evaluated when selecting a capital provider.

Mike Myatt, executive managing director with Pacific Security Capital, explains that “in order to increase project velocity, improve operating efficiency, conserve internal capital, increase leverage and lower the overall cost of capital, it is essential that a sponsor develop an integrated capital formation strategy surrounding acquisition/refinance/development initiatives.”

Among the many things those commercial real estate borrowers in today’s marketplace need to address when seeking capital are:
- The selection of the appropriate capital provider;
- Level(s) of the capital structure to be addressed;
- Operating considerations;
- Control provisions;
- Rate, term, pricing and structure;
- Closing time frame;
- Third party requirements;
- Certainty of execution;
- Recourse provisions;
- Exit and pre-payment options;
- Inter-creditor or other multi-party agreements;
- Post closing servicing issues;
- The effect of the capital acquired on tax, balance sheet, future projects or portfolio considerations, and;
- A whole host of other value-added considerations.

The first thing that borrowers must understand is that all capital providers are not created equal. There is a definite hierarchy within the world of capital providers and understanding the value-ads offered by different capital providers is important in choosing a relationship.

Myatt adds that “while many borrowers believe financing to simply be a commoditized offering, the selection of a capital provider, should take into account far more than rate and term considerations. In choosing a capital provider, the goal of any borrower should be to develop a close relationship with the firm that can provide not only the broadest access to capital, but more importantly a firm that offers best-in-class subject matter expertise, certainty of execution and as many value-added benefits and services as possible. Capital providers can most easily be broken-down into three groups:

Direct Lenders – Those that lend their own funds
- Commercial real estate investment banks
- International, national, regional and local banks
- Life Insurance Companies
- Agencies (Fannie, Freddie, FHA)
- Pension Plans
- Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT)
- Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds, Opportunity Funds
- Credit Companies
- Private Lenders

Indirect Lenders – Those that place funds on behalf of others
- Financial Intermediaries
- Investment Advisors
- Syndicators
- Mortgage Bankers
- Mortgage Brokers

Hybrid Lenders – Those that do both of the above
- Certain Investment Banks
- Certain Investment Advisors
- Certain Banks
- Certain Credit Companies
- Certain Financial Intermediaries

Once a borrower has selected the appropriate capital provider, it is essential that the capital provider be engaged as early on, and at as high a level as possible. Experienced sponsors realize the benefit of getting their capital provider involved early on in the planning process. Waiting too long to involve your lender will typically lead to a project built with less leverage and at a higher cost of funds. By including your capital provider in the beginning of the project planning process you will end-up with a project plan that is built around optimizing capital formation leading to greater project profitability.

Effectively utilizing the entire capital structure, to maximize leverage while achieving the lowest blended cost of funds and isolating risk, is essential to the creation of a solid capital formation strategy. In general, the farther you move up the leverage curve utilizing more leverage in the senior position the lower the overall cost of funds will be. Conversely, the deeper you move down the capital stack utilizing mezzanine or equity instruments the more expensive the cost of capital.

Selecting the appropriate capital provider and engaging them properly will aid in the streamlining of the borrowing process. If borrowers will focus on capital formation as a priority at the early stages of project planning the likelihood of increasing profits in a risk managed environment is high.

Government Grants License to Oregon Company to Sell Nuclear, Chemical, Biological Protection Devices for Overpressure Filters for Bomb Shelters and Safe Rooms

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Military Affairs and Defense Trade Controls have granted an export license to, American Safe Room Inc. to manufacture and sell their Safe Cell 100N to anyone in America as well as export the device to approved foreign countries for use by their military.

(PRWEB) August 21, 2021 -- American Safe Room Inc. of Sutherlin, Oregon has started shipping a controlled military device to the general public. Their ASR-100N is a positive pressure air filtration unit for stripping nuclear fallout, weaponized biological toxins and chemical gases from the airflow. It works by taking outside air and pushing it through its filter banks and on into the room creating an overpressure with the safe insuring that toxins from the outside cannot migrate into the protected space.

Among improvements over its predecessor, the ASR-100, has the ability to run on any voltage of any electrical service used worldwide. It can also switch automatically from normal line voltage to an emergency battery back-up if the grid power fails and as last resort can utilize an optional hand operated pump in case of long term power failure.

The ASR-100N was the brainchild of Len Henrikson one of the engineers at American Safe Room Inc. Henrikson says “It was my intent to develop an easy to install and affordable military CBRN air filtration unit to offer the general public and still follow the military specifications of the Army Corps of Engineers for for a collective protection filtration device”

Henrikson explains, the options for civil defense against nuclear fallout, weaponized biological agents and warfare gases, are very limited. At the bottom end is "duct tape and plastic." One step up is gas masks. Both of these "solutions" have serious limitations. Sealing up a room is almost impossible without an overpressure (a relative atmosphere of higher pressure inside the room) and the inherent problem of replenishing the room with oxygen and discharging the carbon dioxide that people exhale. This is the same system and grade of equipment employed by the military in their collective protection shelters and armored vehicles to keep toxin out of the crew compartment, “this is what we make”.

The Safe Cell ASR-100N and other military devices can be seen by visiting their company’s website www.americansaferoom.com/

American Safe Room, Inc., an Oregon corporation formed by a group of engineers in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, committed to quick, reliable, and affordable protection from intentional or accidental release of atmospheric nuclear, biological or chemical agents.

Glow-in-the-Dark Emergency Exit Signs Help Save Lives, Comply with Revised New York Law

Hyline Safety Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of photoluminescent safety signs, offers all required glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs and egress path markings for Class E Commercial High Rise Buildings, according to New York City’s recently amended Local Law 26. Once these signs are in place, commercial high-rise building occupants will have a safe illuminated path through dark stairwells in the event of an emergency or power outage.

(PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- Hyline Safety Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of photoluminescent signs, will be offering New York City all the newly required Local Law 26-compliant RS 6-1 glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs and an assortment of all the specific required signs and markings. The signs will provide a non-toxic, non-electric, and non-radioactive source of protection in the event of an emergency or power outage.

“Photoluminescence is the most economical and foolproof method to ensure that people can easily find and use the path to a safe emergency exit,” said Evan Lipstein, CEO of Hyline Safety Company. “Using glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs and egress systems will clearly point out escape routes in darkened environments. This is imperative to aid people's abilities to find their way out of a building quickly, efficiently and safely.”

Once the signs are in place, commercial high-rise building occupants will have a safe illuminated path through dark stairwells in the event of an emergency or power outage. Hyline use the latest photoluminescent technology with high-grade Strontium Aluminate industrial pigments that absorb and store normal ambient light. In the event of a sudden power outage, the stored light energy is immediately visible, enabling the Hyline Safety evacuation guidance systems and glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs to provide a safe illuminated path through dark stairwells, and hallways.

The major benefits of glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs are:
* Help the safe, orderly and speedy evacuation of buildings in blackout conditions
* Cannot fail, ever, provided they have been exposed to normal lighting levels prior to darkened conditions
* Function under any conditions, including heavy smoke that would obscure electrically operated emergency lighting systems
* Easy and economical to install and maintain
* Require no electricity, zero maintenance and are not affected by heat, cold, or explosion

Upgrading emergency systems to glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs is required by New York Local Law 26. The deadline for installation is July 1, 2006. Using Hyline Safety glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs will reduce confusion and avoid panic in blackout conditions, and with periodic inspections and minimal maintenance (keeping the face of the signs clean and unobstructed), the glow-in-the-dark emergency exit sign systems can last for 25 or more years.

To schedule an evaluation of a building’s emergency exit lighting needs or to learn more about the Hyline Safety glow-in-the-dark emergency exit sign systems, visit www.HylineSafety.com or call 212-688-5600.

Window Repair Systems, Inc. Helps School Districts Save Money While Protecting the Environment

School districts can save on energy and have more to spend on the students. Windows are the hidden budget drain, but there is a solution.

Victor, New York (PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- Window Repair Systems announced today that it is helping schools districts maximize savings in energy and operating costs while earning the ENERGY STAR label for buildings, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) national symbol for superior energy performance.

As a provider of energy-efficient services and products, Window Repair Systems is improving the energy performance of its clients through upgrades and implementing proven energy management strategies. Clients can strive to earn the ENERGY STAR label for their buildings and positively impact their operating expenses and shareholder value.

At the Troy State University at Dothan, Window Repair Systems was contracted to repair roughly 200 windows. With their TURBO II balance retro-fit, Window Repair Systems not only made the windows significantly more safe but the retro-fit decreased the CFM (air infiltration/ cubic feet per minute) from 15 CFM to 3CFM. This decrease in CFM is roughly five times, reducing indoor temperature fluctuations and reducing the amount of energy used to regulate those temperatures.

The Dothan project will pay for itself in energy savings in two years. "Imagine what school districts can buy with the money saved with the TURBO II retro-fit. New computers, more building renovations and updated school materials, are just some of the benefits that can be seen after the correct energy program is implemented," stated Marketing Associate, Michael W. Fox.

Not only does Window Repair Systems retro-fit windows with their TURBO II balances that decrease air infiltration and increases safety, they also carry various “energy kits” which consist of products that range from window shades to window film.

"Investments in improving energy performance can achieve competitive rates of return while cutting energy costs by 30 percent," said Jean Lupinacci, branch chief, EPA.

Window Repair Systems has committed to helping its customers achieve superior standards of energy performance in their buildings. This will help these customers reap financial rewards and position themselves as environmentally responsible citizens.

EPA estimates that by 2010, the savings from energy-efficient investments will reduce the annual greenhouse gas emissions in the United States by 2.4 million tons – the equivalent of the pollution produced by 1.7 million cars – and save taxpayers more than $750 million per year.

Brainium to Specialize in Corporate Event Management and Marketing Services

Brainium, Inc. has refocused its marketing communications agency to specialize in the management, marketing, and production of corporate events and meetings for 50-5,000 attendees.

Manchester, NH (PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- Agency Will Help Companies Deliver Improved Event Experiences and Achieve Marketing Objectives

Brainium, the Corporate Events Agency, today announced that it will focus its core service offerings to support the management, marketing and production of corporate events for 50-5,000 attendees.

Brainium recognized that there was tremendous opportunity in combining our event management backgrounds and marketing communications expertise to create a truly unique, niche agency focused on helping clients develop and deliver exceptional events that greatly enhance their marketing initiatives."

Brainium's corporate event services include theme and program development, project management and event marketing, attendee acquisition and registration, audio/visual and staging, communications planning, hotel/property logistics and negotiations, graphic design and collateral production, speaker and presentation support, and video production. The agency is marketing its services directly to corporate clients and is pursuing partnerships with leading advertising and marketing agencies seeking to enhance their service offerings with a proven partner who can offer turnkey, outsourced event management.

According to Pete Lecours, chief events brain for Brainium, "For any company that utilizes corporate events as a way to market their products or services, it's critical to work with an agency partner who truly understands the intricacies of producing an effective corporate event. At Brainium we really do understand the marketing reasons behind any successful event or meeting. We also provide negotiating power and a high-level of expertise in dealing with hotel and convention properties and we’re able to leverage relationships with third-party vendors, such as audio/visual and staging companies, in order to create dynamic, memorable events that communicate key messages and engage audiences. Basically, we do the heavy lifting, take care of the details and make our clients look good -- actually, we make them look extraordinarily brilliant."

Laboratory Director to Present at Wood Coatings Conference

Introducing an Immobilized Antimicrobial Coating to the Building Products Industry

MIDLAND, MI (PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- Robert Monticello, Ph.D., Laboratory Director and Vice President of ÆGIS Environments, will present at the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology’s (FSCT) AC Series Conference “Coating and Wood Composites: The Changing Future” September 26, 2005, at the Marriott Charlotte Executive Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.

His presentation, entitled “Bridging of Industries Makes Old Technologies Seem New: A Commercial, Registered, and Immobilized Antimicrobial Agent Available for Use on OSB and Composite Lumber” will address and present data on an immobilized antimicrobial agent currently used in the textile industry and its applicability in the building and construction industry, specifically when applied to composite lumber such as OSB and engineered composite lumber such as deckboard or trim materials. In addition, appropriate test methods and their relativity to real-life performance will be presented.

From the abstract:

In the world of antimicrobial agents, not all are created equal. For this reason, the application process, performance, expectation, and test methods must also be different. The new and adapted chemistries involved in such actions differ in their ease of use, mode of action, spectrum of activity, and toxicity to humans and the environment. The call for safer, less toxic antimicrobial agents is made in every industry that uses preservatives and protectants as a performance enhancer or product stabilizer – the Building/Construction industry is no different.

With the loss (voluntary ban) of CAA and increased awareness of the toxicity profile of other common antifungal/antialgal additives, the wood and composite industry is demanding the availability of new technologies to help combat mold and mildew in and on their products. For biocidal product manufacturers, the research and development involved to create new molecules is a relatively simple hurdle compared to regulatory registration hurdles that must occur on national (US-EPA) and international (EU-BPD). The time and expense involved in creating new antimicrobials almost seals their fate. The use of older well-tested technologies currently used in other industries provides a new source of registered antimicrobial agents w with excellent safety profiles. This is true in the established textile market where performance claims for antimicrobial agents can range from simple odor control to treating with sanitizers and disinfectants to producing hygiene surfaces capable of eliminating infectious microorganisms to mold and mildew control, both on the textile and for the surfaces they contacts. Traditional antifungal/antialgal agents used in the wood and construction products industry have been eliminated because of their negative environmental and human toxicity legacy. Test techniques have had to be able to be modified for evaluating new antimicrobial agents.

For more information regarding this conference, please visit http://www.coatingstech.org. For more information on the presentation or to inquire about ÆGIS’ antimicrobial products please visit www.microbeshield.com.

About Us: ÆGIS Environments - Originally developed in the 1970’s, the ÆGIS Microbe Shield™ technology is the world’s first antimicrobial for the treatment of goods which is odorless, colorless, non-leaching, long lasting and effective against fungi, bacteria and algae.

Construction Recruiter Reveals Secret to Hiring Top Management Talent

Follow these four steps to hiring better candidates.

(PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- When it comes to hiring top management talent in the construction industry, the concepts are very simple to understand. It's just a matter of doing those things that win the most desirable candidates to your team. "It really is that simple," says Scott Love, a ten-year veteran of the executive search industry. Love's firm, Scott Love Associates, recruits senior level executives within the commercial construction industry. He says, "The problem is that most people never take the time to find out what really motivates the candidate."

Love says that there are four critical steps to make your company more appealing to the talent that everyone else is chasing after. In an increasingly competitive market, you need to think out of the box and focus on how you can serve the prospective candidate pool.

1. Get clear on the uniqueness of your organization and the opportunities within it. Love states that most construction companies miss the mark when it comes to this because they've never taken time to look at their hiring process from a marketing perspective. "Marketing is all about differentiation, so you need to find out what is different about your firm and what is different about the experience that a recent graduate or seasoned manager will feel when working there." Love recommends talking to existing managers and employees and getting their feedback through confidential surveys. Ask them why they joined, why they stay, and if there was one bit of information that they could pass on to a prospective candidate, what would it be?

2. Find out from the candidate what motivates him or her beyond compensation and show how your company can deliver on those desires. Find out what the top three things are that they would need to see in an opportunity (outside of compensation) and present your prospective position in those terms. Love sums it up by saying, "Don't sell your company based on why you joined it or why you find it appealing. Instead, find out why someone else would join it, and show them that your opportunity will help them achieve what they really want. Remember, it's not about you. It's about them."

3. When the candidate transitions, stay with them. At the time they turn their notice in, they are susceptible to changing their minds and taking a counteroffer to. "That's the most critical time of the whole deal and the time that they need to build positive relationships with as many future colleagues as possible." Love says that the mistake most employers make is to assume that the deal is closed when the candidate accepts the offer. "It's not closed until they show up, and even then sometimes it's not really closed."

4. Love says to tell stories of how a future colleague is experiencing what that prospect wants to experience. Tell success stories which validate that the motivations of the candidate can be realized within your company. "Credibility is built on specificity. If you back it up with factual evidence, such as stories, then it's not your opinion but an irrefutable fact. If you tell them your opinion, then it loses credibility. But if you say, 'Let me tell you about one of our senior level executives and how he is doing what you are telling me is important to you,' then you win them over completely."

Love is also the author of two books on recruiting and writes a nationally syndicated leadership column called 'Leading to Win.' He conducts senior-level searches within the construction industry and speaks professionally at corporate and association meetings on leadership, rain-making, and building authentic employee motivation. He can be reached at 828-225-7700 or at www.constructionleadership.com.

Carter Jonas' Clients Receive Documents Faster After Introduction of WinScribe Digital Dictation System

National firm of property consultants, Carter Jonas, has slashed the amount of time it takes to deliver documents to clients after introducing the WinScribe digital dictation workflow system. The system, supplied by WinScribe’s exclusive UK Platinum Partner SRC, was piloted in the firm’s Cambridge, Peterborough and Shrewsbury offices and is now being rolled to over 200 staff firm-wide.

London (PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- National firm of property consultants, Carter Jonas, has slashed the amount of time it takes to deliver documents to clients after introducing the WinScribe digital dictation workflow system. The system, supplied by WinScribe's exclusive UK Platinum Partner SRC, was piloted in the firm's Cambridge, Peterborough and Shrewsbury offices and is now being rolled to over 200 staff firm-wide.

Carter Jonas first invested in basic digital dictation technology in 2003 with a system that enabled surveyors to use handheld recorders and email their dictations to an individual secretary back at the office. The WinScribe digital dictation workflow system significantly extends this facility by using an intelligent central server that automatically sends dictations to secretaries, no matter where they're located, enabling better utilization of support resources and significantly reducing the time it takes for documentation to reach a client.

“Cost effectively improving our service to clients is central to the firm's IT strategy and allows us to generate a real edge over our competitors,” said Patrick Hastings, head of IT at Carter Jonas.

“While the basic system we were using was certainly an improvement over analogue, it became clear that digital dictation technology has moved on considerably over the last couple of years and we soon realized that far more significant improvements could be achieved by introducing a more intelligent, server-based dictation workflow system with sophisticated remote working support.

“The WinScribe system is the ideal solution for a highly mobile, multi-office surveying firm like ours because it allows typing work to be intelligently distributed and shared between offices and departments, which enable much greater team working. Our surveyors' dictations are available to secretaries for typing virtually as soon as they're created which eliminates backlogs of work and means we can deliver client documentation in a fraction of the time.”

Surveyors working away from the office simply record their dictations using handheld devices and then upload the digital files to a laptop or their home PC, which automatically sends the dictation to the WinScribe system. When in the office, surveyors simply dock their device to a dedicated unit which automatically submits their work for completion.

“Over the last few years we've invested heavily in mobile working facilities to give our rural surveyors access to the Carter Jonas network wherever they may be, but until now dictation had been the missing link. Where once surveyors used to have to drive to an office to drop off a tape, now the system is totally integrated with our network infrastructure,” continued Mr Hastings.

Chris Hart, SRC CEO added, “WinScribe is the world's most widely used digital dictation system and provides a breakthrough in mobile working facilities for surveyors. With new features such as the ability to upload dictations from any Internet enabled PC, coupled with telephone dictation and Intelligent Work Management, firms of all sizes can gain a significant competitive edge and that is one of the key reasons why so many are now adopting the system.”

WinScribe digital dictation is in use by a rapidly growing number of surveying firms, including GVA Grimley, Tuffin Ferraby & Taylor, Capita, Atis Real, The Valuation Office and Currie & Brown.

About SRC:
As the UK's longest established provider of professional speech technology solutions, SRC has more experience than any other digital dictation or speech recognition vendor.

ÆGIS Laboratory Director to Present at Wood Coatings Conference

Introduction of an immobilized antimicrobial to the building products industry.

MIDLAND, MI (PRWEB) August 21, 2021 -- Robert Monticello, Ph.D., Laboratory Director and Vice President of ÆGIS Environments, will present at the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology’s (FSCT) AC Series Conference “Coating and Wood Composites: The Changing Future” September 26, 2021 at the Marriott Charlotte Executive Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. His presentation, entitled “Bridging of Industries Makes Old Technologies Seem New: A Commercial, Registered, and Immobilized Antimicrobial Agent Available for Use on OSB and Composite Lumber” will address and present data on an immobilized antimicrobial agent currently used in the textile industry and its applicability in the building and construction industry, specifically when applied to composite lumber such as OSB and engineered composite lumber such as deckboard or trim materials. In addition, appropriate test methods and their relativity to real-life performance will be presented.

From the abstract:

In the world of antimicrobial agents, not all are created equal. For this reason, the application process, performance, expectation, and test methods must also be different. The new and adapted chemistries involved in such actions differ in their ease of use, mode of action, spectrum of activity, and toxicity to humans and the environment. The call for safer, less toxic antimicrobial agents is made in every industry that uses preservatives and protectants as a performance enhancer or product stabilizer – the Building/Construction industry is no different.

With the loss (voluntary ban) of CAA and increased awareness of the toxicity profile of other common antifungal/antialgal additives, the wood and composite industry is demanding the availability of new technologies to help combat mold and mildew in and on their products. For biocidal product manufacturers, the research and development involved to create new molecules is a relatively simple hurdle compared to regulatory registration hurdles that must occur on national (US-EPA) and international (EU-BPD). The time and expense involved in creating new antimicrobials almost seals their fate. The use of older well-tested technologies currently used in other industries provides a new source of registered antimicrobial agents w with excellent safety profiles. This is true in the established textile market where performance claims for antimicrobial agents can range from simple odor control to treating with sanitizers and disinfectants to producing hygiene surfaces capable of eliminating infectious microorganisms to mold and mildew control, both on the textile and for the surfaces they contacts. Traditional antifungal/antialgal agents used in the wood and construction products industry have been eliminated because of their negative environmental and human toxicity legacy. Test techniques have had to be able to be modified for evaluating new antimicrobial agents.

Record Temperatures Slow the Soundproofing Industry

Why sales are slow in the acoustical treatment and soundproofing industries.

(PRWEB) August 20, 2021 -- The intense heat and humidity throughout the United States has slowed the sales of acoustical products across the board. There are people searching for soundproofing and acoustical products, but they just aren't purchasing at this time. We have learned that 95% of all incoming calls do indeed turn into sales. It may be 3 months down the line, but generally most people who call do indeed buy. From my experience, most soundproofing sales take place in the Fall, Winter, or Spring. The competition is fierce, but there is geneally enough business to go around.

The older more established companies thrive via their reputation in the industry, and the newer companies find it a little intimidating swimming with the "Big Fish". Just remember, that the little guys are the backbone of this country's economy, so the next time you are looking for a good soundproofing supplier, look past the top ten listings on Google, Yahoo, or MSN, you might be surprised at the quality of service the little guy provides. That's my perspective, we welcome yours.

As Always,

No Ordinary B.S. Only College in America to Offer Degrees in Building Arts

The American College of the Building Arts welcomes its inaugural class of students during its first Convocation ceremony held this morning at McLeod Plantation at 10 a.m. The ceremony will also celebrate the opening of the newest college in South Carolina and the first ever in American history to be licensed to offer a degree in one of the traditional building arts.

Charleston, S.C. (PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- The historic bell on the grounds of McLeod Plantation will ring this morning when the American College of the Building Arts welcomes its inaugural class of students during its first Convocation.

The ceremony will be held this morning at McLeod Plantation at 10 a.m. The ceremony will also celebrate the opening of the newest college in South Carolina and the first ever in American history to be licensed to offer a degree in one of the traditional building arts.

With the successful completion of their studies, which include the liberal arts general education requirements (English, Math, History, etc.); students of the College will receive either an Associate's or a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Sciences. Students will major in one of the six traditional building trades: architectural metal, architectural stone, carpentry, masonry, plaster working, or timber framing.

David AvRutick, President of the American College of the Building Arts, will welcome America's first building artisan baccalaureate candidates and guests on the morning of the 19th and lead the ceremony. Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr., recognized as a national leader in preservation and urban planning, will also address the gathering.

Mayor Riley said, "We are extremely proud to have the American College of the Building Arts in Charleston and to welcome their first incoming class of students. As one of the great centers for preservation in America, Charleston is the perfect home for the College and will serve as a wonderful textbook for the students. We are thrilled to be home of the first college of its kind in America."

In addition to speeches by Mayor Riley and President AvRutick, Master Artisan Jean Wiart will offer the Keynote Address as the representative of the building artisan community; a tradition the College plans to follow every year. A graduate of the French program, Les Compagnons du Devoir, which has been continuously teaching the building arts for over 600 years, Wiart has received several prestigious awards for his work in France and has also been highly praised for projects in New York and throughout the United States, including the restoration of the torch for the Statue of Liberty. Wiart, the founder of the American extension of Les Metalliers Champenois, S.A., of Reims, France, specializes in historic preservation and select metal craftsmanship.

Wiart has stated, "I am extremely flattered to be the keynote speaker and building artisans' representative at the first Convocation at the American College of the Building Arts. The need for the graduates of the College is something I know all too well and am very excited about helping launch this important program.”

Following the Keynote Address, another new tradition will be unveiled, the Splitting of the Stone. This ceremony, deeply rooted in history, consists of a stone being split in half using only a plug and metal feathers. This process reveals the true nature of the stone for the first time and represents the opening of a new era and all its new possibilities. This dramatic event will be a symbol of what the new College will offer both its students and the nation. President AvRutick will lead this ceremony and be joined by a number of other individuals credited for helping create the College. Participants include: Philip Simmons, Master ironworker and Charleston's national treasure, who is considered to be the Inspirational Founder of the College; John Paul Huguley, founder of the School of the Building Arts – the College's predecessor organization; Nancy Hawk, Chair of the College's Board of Directors; Simeon Warren, the College's Associate Dean for Strategic Planning, as the representative of the faculty; and a student representing the entering class.

After the Stone Ceremony, Nancy Hawk will declare the academic year of the College open. At that time, another student representative will ring the McLeod Plantation bell, which has been mounted in one of the major live oak trees on the plantation for decades, to signify the opening of the American College of the Building Arts.

A reception under the live oaks, hosted by President and Mrs. AvRutick, will follow the Convocation events. Media are warmly invited to attend the Convocation Ceremony and reception.

About The American College of the Building Arts:
The American College of the Building Arts provides a focused liberal arts education and trains new generations of artisans in the traditional building arts to foster exceptional craftsmanship and encourage the preservation, enrichment and appreciation of our architectural heritage. The College operates in three locations: the historic Old City Jail in downtown Charleston, the Noisette Campus at the former Charleston naval base and the future permanent home being created on the nearby 330+-year-old McLeod Plantation. All three sites offer the students and faculty the chance to work together in a living laboratory that encompasses history and beauty. The inaugural class will study primarily at the Noisette Campus and use McLeod and the Old City Jail as their learning labs.

New Technologically-Advanced Speakers Bring Unique Sound Quality Into 'Focus'

Focused Sound speakers already making an impact at venues nationwide. http://www.dakotaaudio.com

Bismarck, N.D. (PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- New technologically-advanced speakers are bringing unique sound quality into 'focus.'

It's a product that has already shown its prowess at venues like the Country Music Hall of Fame, select national museums and even the Mayo Clinic. Now Dakota Audio is aiming to bring its innovative speaker technology to many other venues worldwide.

Focused Sound is a compact product from Dakota Audio that controls sound in a unique manner so listeners can experience high quality sound directed to a specific area without being distracted by large, obtrusive speakers.

How Does Focused Sound Work?: http://www.dakotaaudio.com/howItWorks.shtml
Multiple small, high-quality loudspeakers comprise Focused Sound, which provides excellent sound quality and control in thin, almost inconspicuous packages. Patent-pending technology allows Dakota Audio to design arrays for specific situations and provide coverage patterns not available with other technologies.

"The combination of thin, unobtrusive looks, low distortion and excellent frequency response is unsurpassed in the field of directed audio," says Lynn Mader, inventor and developer of Focused Sound.

Dakota Audio mounts the multiple loudspeakers on a flat surface, eliminating the sonic coloration of domes. By strictly controlling the "launch" time of the sound from each loudspeaker, all speakers act together in concert at the target location. This control, known as correlation, allows Focused Sound to deliver well-controlled sound dispersion, adjustability and coverage patterns that are not physically possible with a dome.
http://www.dakotaaudio.com/whatIsItAnyWay.shtml

Typical focused arrays give a reduction in volume of more than 20 decibels as a listener steps from the sound's "target zone" to the untargeted area just a few feet away. By varying the design of the array and the timing of the speakers, different patterns and focal lengths may be obtained. The thin (3 inches "thick") arrays are much less conspicuous than a "flying saucer convention" of dome speakers. The 36-inch square arrays can be customized to almost any shape or size.

Normally, the arrays are mounted overhead using thin aircraft cables. However, Focused Sound also can be mounted under grates in the floor, either under directly under the listener, or offset several feet from the listener (with the sound projected at an angle).

"We welcome side-by-side comparisons with any other technology for controlling sound," says Mader. In fact, that's exactly how Dakota Audio proved itself and landed its biggest clients, including the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn.; the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.; the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia; the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis, Tenn.; and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

Dakota Audio can customize Focused Sound to meet indoor and outdoor acoustical needs. Information about the product is available online: http://www.dakotaaudio.com or by calling (800) 428-3461.

Energy Bill Provides Incentives for Building Energy Efficient Homes; BioBased Insulation Helps Builders Meet Energy Requirements

Americans now have greater opportunities to live in healthier, more energy efficient homes thanks to an energy bill that has just made its way through the 109th Congress. The bill offers American builders incentives to build more energy efficient homes, and BioBased Insulation, an energy-efficient, soy based foam insulation can help them meet government requirements.

WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- Americans now have greater opportunities to live in healthier, more energy efficient homes thanks to an energy bill that has just made its way through the 109th Congress. The bill offers American builders incentives to build more energy efficient homes, and BioBased Insulation, an energy-efficient, soy based foam insulation can help them meet government requirements.

The “Efficient Energy Through Certified Technologies and Electricity Reliability (EFFECTER) Act of 2005” is also known as H. R. 134. The bill defines a qualified new energy efficient home as, “A dwelling unit, located in the U.S., with an annual heating and cooling energy consumption which is at least 30 percent below the annual level of heating and cooling energy consumption,” and has “building envelope component improvements account for at least one-third of such 30 percent” of a compatible dwelling unit.

Builders will receive a $1,000 tax credit for construction of the qualified energy efficient home. If a house is built at the 50 percent efficiency level, with one-fifth of savings coming from a building envelope component, builders will receive a $2,000 tax credit.

A building envelope component is defined as, “Any insulation material or system, which is specifically and primarily designed to reduce the heat loss or gain of a dwelling unit when installed in or on such dwelling unit.” This also includes exterior windows and skylights, doors and any metal roof with appropriate pigmented coating that reduces heat gain of dwelling and meet the Energy Star program requirements.

An innovative way to reach these defined levels of energy efficiency in your home is by applying BioBased 501, which is the greenest, most environmentally-friendly insulation in the industry. BioBased 501 is an open cell, semi-rigid spray foam. In one step, the insulation provides a sealed thermal envelope, preventing outside air infiltration, which is the major cause of energy loss in homes.

“Thanks to Congressman like John Boozman helping push this legislation which offers builders tax credits of $1,000 or $2,000, homeowners will be able to find homes that allow them to save 30 to 50 percent on energy costs by using the spray foam insulation formulated with a soybean-based polyol,” explains Joshua Hutchinson, Director of Government Affairs for BioBased Systems.

BioBased 501, manufactured by BioBased Systems, is the recipient of two national green building awards. In 2003, BioBased Insulation was voted the “Outstanding Green Product of the Year” at the National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Building Conference and was selected among the "2003 Top 10 Green Products" at the U.S. Green Building Council's Green Build Conference.

“BioBased Insulation was formulated with the environment in mind,” according to Mike Muccio, Chief Operating Officer for BioBased. “BioBased Insulation behaves like petroleum-based foam insulation while drastically reducing the negative environmental side effects. This cutting edge technology allows our scientists to replace many of the petroleum-based products found in existing spray foam insulation with less expensive and annually renewable soybean derivatives. This allows a reduction in the high costs normally associated with green building.”

“Consumers who convert from conventional insulation products to BioBased Insulation realize a cost-savings in their first month’s utility bill,” Muccio said. Because of its energy efficiency, BioBased Insulation also reduces the required size of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems, another money-saver for builders and homeowners.

BioBased Insulation is much more effective than other insulation products, according to Muccio. “Within seconds of application, our spray foam insulation expands to 100 times its original liquid size. As it expands, it conforms and fills each cavity, crevice and void to create a sealed thermal envelope. This innovative product adheres to any surface and will not shrink, settle or disintegrate.”

Murayah Launches New Form of Wall Art, Handcrafted Marble Tile Murals for Home and Business Decor

After selecting and acquiring proprietary rights to fine art from Museums around the world the Denver-based company creates these masterpieces on Italian marble tiles for homeowners and business owners who wish to make an artistic impression.

Denver, CO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 18, 2021 -- Murayah has launched its new collection of fine art wall murals on Italian marble tiles. These fabulous tile murals will transform any kitchen wall, bathroom, shower, foyer, bar or wine cellar into an artistic statement of wall art. The company uses its own proprietary process for creating some of the world's finest art on Italian marble tiles.

Thousands of art pieces from more than 70 museums, private collections and fine art institutions throughout the world were reviewed and considered for the Murayah mural collection. The result of this three years extensive effort is a stunning collection of fine art murals on tiles that will enhance any living or working environment, and create wonderful wall art.

The mural collection includes over 200 fine art wall murals, accent tiles and artistic border tiles. Each marble tile is quarried in Italy and tumbled to reveal its own natural veins and unique character. The murals and tiles are maintenance free; they arrive pre-sealed, are water and oil proof and can withstand every day's living conditions. The Murayah collection can be viewed at www.murayah.com.

Launching Murayah was a gradual process that started in 1994 when Gadi Friedman, Murayah's founder and president, attended an art class at the University of California in Los Angeles. While viewing some of the world's finest art in museums and private art collections throughout Los Angeles, Gadi couldn't help but hear the same comments repeatedly: “If I could just afford those beautiful paintings.”

He thus started wondering if there was a way to recreate those masterpieces into wall art without compromising the integrity of the fine art.

“It was an exciting idea,” says Gadi, “and one that I felt had the potential to enrich people's life. I wanted to create the art on a material that not only would reflect the art in its best, but also be durable enough to withstand every day's living conditions. It didn't take long before I stumbled upon natural stone and tumbled marble tiles and realized that their unique character and natural beauty would be a perfect medium for those masterpieces."

Gadi Friedman, who was passionate about wall art, got hooked and in the next year developed a process for hand-printing images on stone. It took another three years to put together a fine art collection that would complement the different décor styles, whether Mediterranean, Tuscan, Traditional, Victorian, French Country or contemporary.

Many people believe that wall murals are out of their reach, that they are cost prohibitive and too fragile. But Murayah makes sure this is not so, said Gadi.

“Our concept is unique,” he added, “because we bring the world's finest art to homes and businesses around the world, at affordable price and without compromising the integrity of the art. Although our artisans were not engaged in painting the original art, they add to it another dimension of beauty and longevity by creating it on natural stone.”

The result is an original masterpiece and authentic representation of the world's best artists. Each piece of wall art is individually crafted, and no two murals are alike.

“Visiting our web site www.murayah.com is like taking a tour at a private museum," summarized Gadi. “The Room Scene section shows different mural installations in kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, wine cellars, restaurants and hotels. The Gallery section features a large collection of the world's fine art masterpieces. It is quite fascinating to see how a beautiful mural can transform any living or working environment into an artistic statement."

Commercial Loans Expert Explains Why CMBS Loans Make Sense for Borrowers

Pacific Security Capital, a commercial loans expert, addresses why Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) loans make sense for commercial loan borrowers.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) August 18, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com -- Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, explains why Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) loans make sense for commercial real estate borrowers.

Mike Myatt, executive managing director with Pacific Security Capital, provides his insight: “It has been our experience that many commercial borrowers tend to shy away from the CMBS markets due to what amounts to a general lack of understanding of the conduit world.”

Without a doubt, conduit financing provides the best pricing available in the market for permanent loans and also affords the borrower the ability to climb the leverage curve in an aggressive fashion.

There is also a misconception that CMBS financing involves a higher degree of complexity and therefore is more difficult to work through the closing process. Pacific Security Capital closes transactions in the agency, life company and CMBS world, and of the three, Pacific Security Capital believes there is more certainty of execution with less complexity in the conduit financing world than either of the other two arenas.

Myatt adds that “the only real issue that could surface as a complicating factor is dealing with operating issues that run afoul of loan covenants, post securitization, as dealing with the sub-servicer or master-servicer can at times provide some difficulty. However, the key to navigating the CMBS world is in understanding the process going in, so that you can create the proper loan structure and manage your transactional risk.”

About Pacific Security Capital
Pacific Security Capital is a leading commercial real estate investment bank providing commercial real estate loans, structured finance, investment sales, development 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. PSC is headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon with other offices in major markets in North American and Europe. More information about the company can be found at www.PacificSecurityCapital.com

NiteLites of Houston to Light Up the Scene at the 24th Annual Houston Home Show

NiteLites of Houston will be showing off their unique lighting systems at the 24th Annual Houston Home Show from August 19 – 21, 2005. Stop by the NiteLites’ booth for more information from owner Scott Biason and his staff.

(PRWEB) August 18, 2021 -- The 24th Annual Houston Home Show will have the enlightened experience of NiteLites landscape lighting crew this year. The show is being held at the George R. Brown Convention Center August 19th - 21st in Houston, Texas. Scott Biason, owner of NiteLites of Houston, and his staff will be their ready to assist with visitors' home lighting needs.

NiteLites is an industry leader in the low voltage, outdoor landscape and architectural lighting field and specializes in both residential and commercial lighting applications.

NiteLites specializes in creating the perfect lighting effects for the individual elements of your home or commercial lighting project. Some of these effects include:

Accent and spotlighting – To add drama to a landscape or to focus attention on a specific architectural feature of a home by shining an intense spotlight on it.

Path or outdoor lighting – Placing fixtures at a low level to make walking on a garden path safer and more serene.

Washing – Installing a light at the base of a wall or hedge to wash light over the surface, creating a soft glow effect.

Up lighting – Shining a light up from the ground into the branches of a tree to accentuate the shape of the tree and to highlight its foliage.

Moonlighting – By locating lights 14 to 16 feet up in the branches of taller trees and angling the light upward, a romantic moonlight effect is created. To create a subtle, whimsical lighting effect on the ground, similar to a full moon shining through the trees, the well elevated fixtures will be angled toward the ground.

Shadowing – Installing spotlights low in front of a tree or statue with a striking profile will create shadows with depth. To create an even more dramatic look, your lighting designer may place the lights high above the focal point.

Silhouetting – By positioning lights behind and below an object, a distinctive silhouette is produced.

Spread lighting - Hiding lights in low-lying landscaping and ground cover causes the lighting to “spread” which emphasizes the textures and patterns of the plants.

NiteLites is offering a free demonstration for your home. See the results of a NiteLites System before you invest anything. Ask your NiteLites of Houston professionals to design and temporarily install a lighting system on your property. You will work with a NiteLites designer to create an application that reflects your personal tastes and fits your budget.

Concrete Washout Systems, Inc.'s Southern California Expansion Continues

California Concrete Washout Systems, LLC has begun servicing builders and contractors in the greater San Diego market.

Elk Grove, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 17, 2021 -- Concrete Washout Systems, Inc., announced today that California Concrete Washout Systems, LLC recently began distributing and servicing Concrete Washout Systems (CWS) in San Diego and Southern Riverside Counties of California.

California Concrete Washout Systems is a newly formed company operating under the guidance of Mark Jenkins and Dave Vaccarezza. Mark Jenkins is president of both Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. and Elk Grove Waste Management, a CWS licensee in the Sacramento Valley market and Dave Vaccarezza is president of California Waste Recovery, also a CWS licensee in Central California.

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to represent CWS in the greater San Diego market,” stated Dave Vaccarezza, Managing Partner of California Concrete Washout Systems, LLC. “The San Diego market is exploding with growth and we see ourselves positioned to offer our risk management services to builders and contractors alike with a strong team and an innovative product,” added Mr. Vaccarezza.

“We are very excited to have CCWS as a partner with the experience and expertise their team has to offer,” stated Kevin Mickelson, Vice President of Concrete Washout Systems, Inc. “The San Diego market is developing at a rapid pace and is in need of risk management solutions that CCWS will be offering,” added Mr. Mickelson.

CWS is currently seeking licensed partners in numerous markets across the nation. Licensed partners will own and operate a Concrete Washout Systems business in their designated region where they will be responsible for all aspects of the business. Currently Concrete Washout Systems has licensed partners throughout most of California, Hawaii, Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, Denver, Colorado and Southeast Florida and have recently signed license agreements for portions of Minnesota and Texas.

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

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

Porta-King has Solutions for Congested Ports

Multi-purpose buildings increase security and maximize limited space. As port traffic increases, ports have more needs for pre-assembled buildings. Their purposes keep expanding as they accommodate new security measures and technological equipment.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 17, 2021 -- According to the American Association of Port Authorities, over the next 15 years the amount of cargo handled by U.S. ports will double to 4 billion tons per year, partly due to outsourcing. This challenges the maritime industry because ports are already understaffed and receive less than 10% funding from the Transportation Security Administration’s annual budget, despite the threat of maritime terrorism. As more employees and security equipment are needed, more buildings are required.

Although prefabricated buildings have been used at ports for a long time, their purposes keep expanding as they accommodate new security measures and technological equipment.

Gregg Pearlstone, Vice President at Porta-King (www.portaking.com), notes that assembled buildings are no longer just traditional guard booths but are complex and electronically-integrated security building systems.

“At Porta-King, we are constructing buildings that serve as freestanding data centers, security and truck checkpoints,” said Pearlstone.

According to Porta-King, many ports are adding state-of-the-art options to their buildings to make them more secure and technologically integrated. Popular features include ballistic rated construction, custom shelves and cabinets to house sophisticated security equipment, intercom systems, data ports or other specialized electronics. In addition, these custom designed units include climate control and can be equipped with pre-plumbed restrooms along with many other custom design features. Porta-King structures can also feature exterior lighting packages for increased security. Most guard buildings constructed for use at Ports or other operations located near the ocean will include roll-down shutters for protection against hurricane force winds.

As maritime traffic becomes even more congested, Pearlstone believes that Porta-King buildings are ideal because of their mobility and effective space management.

“Since American ports are so busy and have limited space, Porta-King buildings are necessary because they can easily be moved around ports. In addition, the prefabricated design enables immediate installation without the added disruptions to traffic flow associated with the construction required for a conventionally built security building,” said Pearlstone.

Porta-King has been a leader in custom-designed, pre-assembled buildings since 1969. In addition to its exterior pre-assembled buildings, Porta-King offers a full line of modular wall systems and enclosures including single and two-story designs, as well as structural steel mezzanines used for storage, production and elevated office space. Porta-King buildings provide shelter and storage solutions for virtually any working environment. For more informtion visit www.portaking.com.

Real Estate Agents, Bankers, Brokers to Meet at Real Estate Wealth Expo Featuring Donald Trump, Magic Johnson

Vendors have an opportunity to gain leads with access to an estimated 58,000 real estate investors who will attend the Real Estate Wealth Expo. These consumers are eager to learn about the latest profitable opportunities and hear from industry experts, including Donald Trump, in an exciting, receptive environment.

New York, N.Y. (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 16, 2021 -- The 2005/2006 Real Estate Wealth Expo (RE Expo) held Oct. 22-23, 2005 in New York, will be an ideal opportunity for vendors to reach an enormous real estate audience. They can gain visibility, generate leads and make sales in addition to meeting with key media and industry professionals.

According to Steve Crawford, of Nationwide Realty, past RE Expos contained a “great atmosphere, impressive displays, and affluent clientele.”

The purpose of the RE Expo is to update and educate consumers, establish property visibility, increase service awareness, and generate sales leads within the real estate and financial industries. The first RE Expo was held last year in New York and attracted 20,000 attendees. The second RE Expo, held April 2005 in Los Angeles, drew more than 46,000 attendees. The October 2005/2006 RE Expo is expected to attract more than 58,000 and will provide an integrated marketing and networking environment for exhibitors under one roof.

“RE Expo has shown to be a powerful marketing tool for bringing us valuable leads. Collectively, our team acquired over 250 qualified appointments,” says Sonia Goldfinger of Net Foreclosures.

At RE Expos, vendors are surrounded by hundreds of corporate executives and business moguls, presenting an additional opportunity to network, generate leads and form partnerships. Past participant Patricia Seligman of Mortgage Network says, “The Real Estate (Wealth) Expo provided a terrific opportunity to connect with investors, realtors, and most of all, serious buyers; tons of leads.”

Vendors can capitalize on this unique marketing opportunity because they will be able to meet receptive customers face-to-face. An exhibit booth can be reserved for $5,000 - $20,000, sponsorships are available for $25,000 - $250,000, and inclusion in the RE Expo ShowBook is available for $795 - $15,000.

The October event features more than 70 seminars, including celebrity presentations by Donald Trump, Magic Johnson, Robert Kiyosaki and Anthony Robbins.

Discount tickets are available for companies interested in attending RE Expo seminars. Although normally $149 for regular tickets and $499 for VIP pass and front row tickets, both can be purchased through an independent sales associate for $74.50 and $249.50, respectively, until Sept. 23.

Since PMI sets professional standards, conducts research and provides access to a wealth of information and resources, being featured in their magazine provides instant credibility for a company that has a strong proven product line and management team but until the summer of 2005 has been “under the radar on the national level.

When asked what she thought of the recent attention the Mary Ann replied “When first notified, I was extremely nervous but proud and excited. This is a great opportunity and hopefully the beginning of more media attention for the benefits of the energy saving products and physical water treatment technology that we provide the US market. Most of the competitive countries in Europe and Asia take for granted the products we are the distributor of for reducing energy consumption, maintenance and other costs that can significantly impact a company’s bottom line. In several countries there are laws making it mandatory or monetary incentives for businesses to use our technologies. The US business market has always cried out for the need of technology that provides the benefits that we offer, but have been slow to embrace its arrival. The US businesses we work with love the results and have been great advocates, which has a lot to do with the attention we are receiving now.”

Savastat-USA has also sponsored recent events like the two successful regional energy seminars in South Carolina and Kentucky where the inventors of the Savastat products were flown in from Europe to be keynote speakers. An impressive list of attendees from the federal and state government sectors as well as dealer's representatives, potential customers from the business and education communities, along with close work with the DOE (Federal Department of Energy’s) Rebuild America and Energy Smart Schools programs and Energy Star has solidified Savastat-USA’s market position in the US.

Savastat-USA’s work to provide an integrated strategic message across multiple media channels led to being featured in PM Network magazine; a magazine that has won ASBPE, APEX and Communicator awards for writing and design excellence and in 2004 placed in the top 25 best issues in the Tabbie Awards (Trade, Association and Business Publications International). 2 press releases from early summer 2005 garnered over 200,000 readers in over 1,800 industry specific and regional media outlets providing the initial life for the national marketing campaign. Savastat-USA’s marketing director stated “our future gets brighter every day.”

Loose Loads Turn Into Debris Danger

Drivers are facing increasing danger on freeways due to poorly secured materials, tools and other loads. When loose material becomes dangerous flying debris, it has a huge impact on our roadways and on our insurance liability rates.

CORONA, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2021 -- Drivers are facing increasing danger on freeways due to poorly secured materials, tools and other loads. When loose material becomes dangerous flying debris, it has a huge impact on our roadways and on our insurance liability rates.

“Daily we’re seeing a deadly old menace on our roads and highways. It is proving very costly both in terms of people hurt or killed and millions of taxpayers’ dollars to clean it up,” says Angel Rivera, President of LOAD-HELPER LLC and creator of Load-Helper, a tie-down system developed to secure those hazardous shipments in transit.

To counter the growing debris problem, the California Department of Transportation has launched a new, $6.5 million dollar public awareness campaign called, “Don’t Trash California” to focus attention on the problem.

“The fact is,” says Rivera, “that along with making people aware of the danger of road debris, we need to provide contractors and others a simple way to secure their loads more safely. Our product, Load-Helper, works with existing tie-downs to make securement effective. It will save valuable time when tying down before a driver is about to get on the road with materials or tools in a truck bed or attached to an overhead frame --- but it can make all the difference.”

According to CALTRANS, the tool that most often turns into flying debris is an aluminum ladder. That item is closely followed on the statistics list by sheets of plywood and lumber that are improperly secured and become loose on the road.

“Its simple physics -- loads fly out the back of a truck when the vehicle moves forward or they shift to the front when braking. Unfortunately, that’s the one fact most people fail to consider until they see part of their load flying off. Our system provides that added all-important help to shield loads from becoming projectiles and striking other vehicles,” adds Rivera.

LOAD-HELPER Systems include a full-line of different sizes and lengths of shields to secure a wide array of loads. LOAD-HELPER, LLC., is a California-based company that manufactures transportation tie-down systems designed to make highway and road travel safer.

Renovate the Empty Nest for $1,000 or Less

Interior Door Replacement Company offers three makeover projects that promise major results.

(PRWEB) August 16, 2021 -- As the "Y Generation" heads off to college, 80 million baby boomers are entering their empty nest years. With over 65 percent of high-school graduates enrolling in college, millions of parents are adjusting to newfound freedom at home.

"Nearly a quarter of empty nesters will renovate their homes after the kids fly the coop," points out Michel Hanet, owner of Interior Door Replacement Company in Scottsdale (www.interiordoor.com). "Some will convert the graduate's bedroom into a study. Others go so far as tearing down walls to make room for a long-forgotten hobby. But many baby boomers are looking for an economical way to reclaim their home's identity," furthers Hanet who provides home renovation services.

Hanet offers three makeover projects for under $1000 that promise major results.

1) Fake it. Faux finish walls add color and texture with limited pain and suffering. Without the constant interruptions of football games and school dances, homeowners can use the free time to sponge, splatter and stipple their way to new surroundings. With minimal supplies and artistic ability, anyone's walls can be transformed to look like leather, denim, marble, stucco or even real wood.

2) Give your kitchen a face-lift. There's no need to remodel the entire kitchen to get a new look. Re-face old cabinet doors and drawer fronts, with newer, stylish materials including wood panel, wood veneer or laminate. Fresh facings can bring light and color into a functional kitchen that just needs a little sprucing up.

3) Remove the ccars of childhood - interior doors marred from years of indoor skateboarding, dart games and personal adornments will never look new again. Rather than sanding, scraping, repainting and patching doors that squeak and don’t fit anyway, why not replace them altogether? Working with existing door jams, Interior Door Replacement Company custom-sizes new doors off site, minimizing the hassle - and the mess - for homeowners. They even dispose of the old doors.

"Renovations don't have to be invasive and time-consuming," explains Hanet, who owns Interior Door Replacement Company in Scottsdale. "They don't even have to be expensive. Because our services start at $129, most homeowners can replace every interior door for less than a thousand dollars."

IDRC's five-step system minimizes discomfort for homeowners. A service team marks and picks up the old doors early in the week. During this visit, which takes less than an hour, they measure the door openings and note gaps or spots that rub. Back at the shop, the team uses 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.

About IDRC
Since 1997, the IDRC franchise has custom installed more than 100,000 interior doors. Headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., IDRC has locations throughout California, Colorado, and Arizona and will soon be expanding to more states. For more information and an online gallery where doors can be custom designed, visit www.interiordoor.com.

HB&G; Introduces Product for Building Industry - PermaWrap™ Columns

Troy, AL (PRWEB) August 15, 2021 -- As the leader in column innovation, HB&G; introduces PermaWrap™ cellular PVC Columns to the building industry. These attractive new columns are designed to eliminate costly damage and replacement of columns during the construction process, and will leave client’s smiling at the walk-through.

“The idea of using cellular PVC for square columns is not new. Cellular PVC is recognized for its durability and weather resistance for exterior applications since it won’t rot, crack or splinter like wood. Over the past nine months, we’ve developed a wraparound column concept,” said Tim Bobo, Marketing Manager for HB&G.;

According to Bobo one of the biggest problems builders face in the field, when using wood and cellular PVC columns, is that the columns often become scratched, nicked, dinged, and damaged during the construction process. That’s because the columns are installed during the framing process, which exposes them to all kinds of damage as building materials and equipment are dragged on and off of the porch going in and out of the house. When that happens, the builder is responsible for the repair and the replacement of damaged columns. With PermaWrap™ Columns, contractors can install them around existing structural posts with the final trim package to eliminate costly damage and call backs.

“Another advantage of using PermaWrap™ columns, for a builder already using cellular PVC or wood to build square columns, is that the PermaWrap column is going to look a lot better than anything else they can build out in the field and will go together much faster,” explained Bobo. “Using a new production process, the columns are “V” Grooved in sheets that can be folded around a square post so that they’re no seams or unsightly nail holes to cover and paint. It has locking joints so that you just glue it, wrap it around, and lock in place. It’s really simple and fast to put up and it looks terrific.”

Competitively priced, each PermaWrap™ Square Column includes neck molding, adhesive, installation brackets, and handrail installation blocks. The columns are available in white but may also be painted using the manufacturer’s instructions. All are backed with an HB&G; five-year warranty.

“Initially,” says Bobo, “we’re going to offer 6, 8, 10 and 12-inch square columns in 6’, 8’, 9’, 10’ & 12’ lengths. Future plans include the introduction or PermaWrap™ in a number of other styles including fluted, raised panel, recessed panel & a Craftsman tapered column.

For more information please contact Tim Bobo at HB&G;: 800-264-4424, Extension 6512.

Phare Consulting Foresees Convergence Revolution in Access Control

An overview presentation by Phare Consulting will be given at the ISC EAST 2005 Conference.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 11, 2021 -- Access Control will follow CCTV as the next segment of physical security to converge with IT. This is the key finding of a presentation by Phare Consulting to be given at ISC East 2005 on August 23rd.

Rich Anderson, President of Phare Consulting says: “The management teams of most end users today have significant pressure to reduce security risk and costs simultaneously. Access Control is often the most critical and most expensive system employed in physical security. The benefit of an IT convergence strategy would be very rewarding for these end users”

To understand the likelihood of Physical and IT convergence, as well as the nature of the opportunity, Phare has recently interviewed a broad segment of enterprise level physical security end users. Their opinions, and Phare’s marketplace analysis, have led to the following key findings:

* Convergence is being driven by eight key end-user forces. These forces include not only the current state of the technology, but also the interest and concern of senior management.

* Manufacturers will be driven not only by end-user needs, but by the ability to reduce R&D; costs. The use of open IT standards to develop security products can also be a major advantage in the R&D; process since significant portions of the hardware and software may already be available for licensing.

* The key opportunity for end user cost savings is in the elimination of proprietary wiring and installation labor. As much as 40% of the end user’s system purchase price is made up of the installation of proprietary wiring and door hardware.

* Most significant IT shops already have 60% of the software required to do Physical Access Control. With the increased use of identity management, network monitoring, and common reporting environments, many IT groups are paying twice for the same functionality today.

The convergence of IT and Physical Security will cause significant structural changes at all levels in the industry.

Phare believes these changes will alter the organization, processes, and responsibilities of many end user security organizations. Clearly, manufacturers will also see significant shifts in their product offering, as well as the value proposition they provide. Most affected, however, may well be the integrator whose excellent physical security skills may not be enough to overcome an absence of a track record in IT technology.

The presentation mentioned in this release will be available from the Phare Consulting web site following the ISC EAST 2005 conference.

About Phare Consulting
Phare Consulting is a Boca Raton, Florida based management consulting firm focused on the development of successful strategies and organizations. Our business is helping to make companies grow. With an extensive background in high-tech B2B companies, and a particular emphasis on the electronic security industry, Phare is uniquely positioned to deliver results - not just reports - to our clients.

Green Roof Blocks™ Donates Green Roof Program to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

Green Roof Blocks™, makers of a portable self-contained green roof system, recently donated its patent pending product to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE). The university will use the green roof system for research purposes.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 11, 2021 -- Green Roof Blocks™, makers of a portable self-contained green roof system, recently donated its patent pending product to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE). The university will use the green roof system for research purposes. Green Roofs are vegetated roof covers that help to reduce energy consumption and costs, decrease storm water runoff, and preserve the life of roof materials. Individual Green Roof Blocks™ cover four square feet of roof surface and contain a growth medium with drought resistant plants.

The initial Green Roof Blocks™ were installed on the SIUE Engineering Building on July 20. The event was attended by several notable SIUE faculty and administrative members including, Chancellor Vaughn Vandegrift, Provost and Vice Chancellor Sharon Hahs, Vice Chancellor Ken Neher, Dean of Graduate Studies and Research Stephen Hansen, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Kent Neely, Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Wendy Shaw, Director of the Environmental Sciences Program Kevin Johnson, Director of Facilities Management Bob Washburn, Associate Professor of Environmental Science Program and Department of Biological Sciences Dr. William Retzlaff, Campus Architect Richard Klein, Engineering Faculty Dr. Susan Morgan, Environmental Sciences Faculty Dr. Nic Guehlstorf, School of Engineering Director of Development Sarah MacDougal and Environmental Sciences Graduate Student Krista Forrester. Also in attendance were Green Roof Blocks™ president Kelly Luckett, Green Roof Blocks™ vice-president Mike Crowell, Jost Greenhouse owner Vic Jost, and Lakeside Roofing.

The initial 16 Green Roof Blocks™ installed are part of an eventual 1000 Green Roof Block™ system. The remaining Green Roof Blocks™ may be purchased by individuals for $100 each, with proceeds benefiting the student research project. Contributors will be able to compose a message on an engraved plate that will be mounted on a plaque overlooking the green roof. Each position on the roof will have a corresponding position on the plaque allowing donors to identify the particular Green Roof Blocks™ their donation made possible. Those interested should contact Marilyn Marsho, 618-650-5048 or by e-mail: e-mail protected from spam bots.

When Service Is More Than Just A Word – Excelsior’s Individual Solutions for Special Business Are Leading Customers To Success

If software is an essential part of your product or solution which has been on the market for 10 or more years, you are surely familiar with the challenges analytic ag from Zuerich, Switzerland faced in late 1990s...

Novosibirsk – Zuerich (PRWEB) August 11, 2021 -- If software is an essential part of your product or solution which has been on the market for 10 or more years, you are surely familiar with the challenges analytic ag from Zuerich, Switzerland faced in late 1990s. Tool vendors no longer exist or do not support their old products, customers want modern graphical interface and interoperability with the latest third-party software, staffing becomes a problem because good, ambitious programmers want to use the latest and greatest technologies, and so on. You begin to think that the only way to catch up with the younger competition is to throw away the old code and hire some young talent to write new from scratch. Fortunately, there exist also less expensive, evolutionary approaches.

Excelsior, LLC from Novosibirsk, Russia, known mostly for its Java Virtual Machine product called Excelsior JET, also acts as a provider of individual software solutions for special business. Today, analytic ag is one of Excelsior’s satisfied customers.

“Analytic ag is a software developer, which started as a data processing center 33 years ago,” said Oskar Herber, founder and Managing Director of analytic ag. “Today we are selling a software suite that automates production of various documentation used in the window manufacturing process. We have hundreds of users, window manufacturers as well as trading companies, in Switzerland and also in some other European countries.”

In analytic’s solution, the whole variety of window types, parts, methods of construction, price calculation and manufacturing documents circulation is hold in original data bases and is maintained with hundreds of programs implementing the industrial know-how. The software has a long history. The original version was developed for the first personal computers and has survived several migrations from one platform to another.

The cooperation with Excelsior started in May 2000, when analytic intended to make another modernization of the software. Driven by customer demand, analytic needed to port their programs from MS-DOS to Windows and design more usable graphic interfaces. The then current version of the software was written in TopSpeed Modula-2, so Excelsior has offered its ISO Modula-2 compiler called XDS as a destination for migration.

“During the past five years, we have migrated analytic’s TopSpeed/MS-DOS Modula-2 code comprising the core business logic to XDS Modula-2 on the Windows 2000/XP platform and integrated it with the new graphical user interface made in Delphi, which greatly improved usability,” said Mr. Vitaly Tsikoza, Project Manager for Excelsior. “We have also introduced modern technologies into software organization, maintenance, and deployment.” The relationship between the two companies has proved so successful that Excelsior is now responsible for the improvement and further development of analytic’s main applications.

Mr. Herber added: “We were very happy with the quick and professional services of Excelsior all the time. We recommend using them for development as well as for special solutions in the Modula-2 environment. An extra plus in working with Excelsior is the fact that there are never any problems with the compiler or the operating system using programs developed by Excelsior. They are so much familiar with their own system, that no problems can come through to us at all.”

About Excelsior
Excelsior provides advanced software development solutions such as optimizing compilers, source to source translators, program debug, analysis and reengineering tools, and related services including application porting and migration since 1999. Privately held, Excelsior, LLC, has its headquarters in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Eliant Announces Ryland Homes' Participation in Revolutionary Customer Experience Management Program

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 11, 2021 -- The Ryland Group, Inc., the country’s 7th largest builder with $3.9 billion in revenue and 15,101 homes closed in 2004, has signed on to participate in Eliant’s “New-Home Customer Experience Management (CEM) System”™. This move signifies Ryland’s strong commitment to customer service as the cornerstone of the firm’s operating philosophy.

“The Ryland Group is very excited to be part of Eliant’s unique ‘Customer Experience Management’ program,” said Eric Elder, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications, of the Ryland Group. “Although we have established a national reputation as a customer-focused builder, Eliant’s system will help us become more consistent in the delivery of an extraordinary purchase experience to more of our customers.”

Based on homebuyer and homeowner surveys collected over the last 22 years, Eliant has determined that the ‘quality’ of a home is no longer the singular driving force behind homebuyer satisfaction and future referrals. “The key to future referrals from delighted homeowners,” said Bob Mirman, Eliant founder and CEO, “is not simply the quality of the home but the nature of the customer’s experience.” Eliant’s New-Home Customer Experience Management System™ provides residential builders with a system to create, manage, and control their customer’s entire experience.

“Ryland Homes is a very successful company due in part to their proven willingness to adapt to the changing attitudes and expectations of today’s homeowners,” continued Mirman. “We are honored to be able to assist them in creating this management system to ensure extraordinary experiences at every touch point with their buyers.”

Elements of The New-Home Customer Experience Management System are being used by Eliant’s top ranked builders to create loyal home buyers by systematically managing each home buyer’s experience.

“It’s not just about customer satisfaction or a quality home anymore,” states Alex Roqueta, President of Eliant. “The top builders are already building a quality product. However, a quality experience resides in the eyes of the buyer and can be totally managed by the builder to create a positive, memorable experience – or an ordinary, uninspiring one.”

Founded in 1967, The Ryland Group, Inc has constructed more than 230,000 homes in 339 communities spanning 27 markets across the country. As one of “America’s Best Managed Companies,” according to Forbes’ annual Platinum 400 list, Ryland has obtained top five rankings in eight distinctive housing markets of Chicago, Orlando, Minneapolis, Tampa, Charlotte, Indianapolis, San Antonio, and Baltimore.

While conducting over 400,000 homebuyer surveys annually, Eliant utilizes its cutting-edge tracking and information management systems to provide builders with timely, actionable and strategic Satisfaction Solutions™. Eliant’s 250 builder clients include some of the most sophisticated firms in the country, including Lennar Family of Builders, DR Horton, Standard Pacific Homes, Pardee Homes, Shea Homes, John Laing Homes, and William Lyon Homes.

Bilingual Guidebook Offered by Landscape Lighting Manufacturer

CAST Lighting publishes a new Spanish/English guidebook for professional landscape lighting installation. This first-of-its-kind manual serves the growing number of Spanish-speaking workers in the landscape lighting industry.

(PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- CAST Lighting, a leading manufacturer of outdoor lighting products, announced the release of a newly revised edition of its instructional guidebook, “Landscape Lighting Installation.” This new edition features both English and Spanish versions in a back-to-back format.

David Beausoleil, President of CAST Lighting, explains, “Professional Landscape Lighting is a fast-growing industry that employs large numbers of Spanish-speaking workers. There are limited resources for the training of these workers and virtually no instructional manuals in Spanish. We decided to invest in the translation of our manual because it provides a simple, yet comprehensive, step-by-step approach to landscape lighting installation. This learning resource empowers the Spanish-speaking worker to fully understand the process and achieve greater success in the business.”

While it is a relatively young company, CAST Lighting has gained a reputation as an innovative solution provider. Countering many prevailing trends in the lighting industry, CAST Lighting offers a small line of high quality solid bronze and copper fixtures and price them affordably. CAST also attributes its increasing success to its focus on education and support. This year, over 1,000 contractors from across the nation received intensive hands-on training from CAST.

David Beausoleil remarks, “Training and support are our number one priorities. The CAST sales staff spends more time in the field with new contractors than they do selling. We also have an aggressive ongoing project to build an online knowledge base of the Art and Science of Landscape Lighting. First time visitors to our website are surprised to find hundreds of pages of education and online tools to support their lighting businesses.”

The bilingual CAST Lighting manual, “Landscape Lighting Installation” is included along with CAST transformers and is also available free-of-charge by contacting CAST Lighting at (800) 914-CAST or info @ cast-lighting.com. The document is also available as a download from the CAST web site.

Landscape Lighting Manufacturer Launches Interactive Image Gallery

CAST Lighting announces the launch of an interactive online image gallery. The new gallery is a showcase meant to educate both homeowners and professional lighting installers. Extensive navigation allows users to select landscape lighting photos based on architectural style, lighting technique and many other criteria.

(PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- CAST Lighting, a leading manufacturer of outdoor lighting products, announces the launch of a newly designed image gallery in its corporate website (www.cast-lighting.com). The new gallery features an extensive navigation that allows the viewer to select images based on architectural style, lighting technique and other criteria.

Stephen Parrott, CAST's Media and Marketing Director, designed the gallery using Macromedia's Flash technology. He explains the concept behind the endeavor, “Over the past several years we documented dozens of landscape lighting projects resulting in nearly 200 high resolution images. We wanted to make these images available to homeowners and lighting professionals in a gallery that acts as both an educational and promotional tool.”

Explaining the technical decisions involved, Mr. Parrott states, “Since a great majority of homeowners have high-speed Internet access and high-quality monitors, we felt comfortable with the decision to go with large photos and Flash technology. This allowed us to create an interactive gallery that gives a truer experience of the visual impact of Landscape Lighting.”

CAST Lighting is well known for its commitment to education. Founder and President David Beausoleil has been teaching landscape lighting installation and design for the past 12 years through courses at Rutgers University and through hands-on seminars sponsored by CAST.

Beausoleil further explains the importance of the gallery, “Our new interactive gallery represents hundreds of hours in programming and development – time well spent since the result is an extremely useful tool. We feel that presenting images in this way helps the entire industry; now, homeowners can better see the value of professionally designed landscape lighting and experience its artistry.”

The new interactive gallery can be viewed at the CAST Lighting website, www.cast-lighting.com.

Research and Markets: Shake Up of Quality Management in Construction

In the construction industry, those who see quality as simply a chore are on the fast track to going out of business.

Dublin (PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c22021) has announced the addition of Quality Management in Construction Third Edition to their offering

In the construction industry, those who see quality as simply a chore are on the fast track to going out of business. Many client organizations now require formal evidence of quality management capability as condition for tendering for contracts or consideration for partnership projects. Client organizations are increasingly unwilling to accept poor quality and the consequent costs relating to rework and time overruns. This puts the pressure on the providers of goods and services to absorb the costs generated by their own shortcomings. Quality is increasingly part of an integrated management systems approach; a construction site that fails to integrate quality, environmental and health and safety issues is likely to attract the attention of the regulatory authorities, sooner rather than later.

Quality Management in Construction is a road map to business success through quality. Amongst the many topics it covers are: a step-by-step approach to creating a quality management system that is right for your company; how to include all your stakeholders in the quality process; how to identify and map your key processes; how to use your system to help market your business and stay competitive; how to monitor and improve ongoing business performance and much, much more.

Russian Investors Buy Dubai Real Estate Worth AED 700 Million

Akar Opens Office In Moscow To Service Upmarket Investors

(PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- Akar Real Estsate company that is involved in developing, building, leasing, managing and marketing real estate projects in Dubai announced the opening of an office in Moscow to deal with the increasing number of Russian investors eyeing long term investment opportunities in the emirate.

“In the last one year, over 300 Russian investors have bought both commercial and residential properties in Dubai estimated at over AED 700 million (US$ 191 million),” said Sultan bin Hareb Al Falahi, Chief Executive Officer of Akar. “The potential is considerable and while we do have Russian speaking staff in our Head Office, the purchase of property always follows a great deal of deliberation and it makes sound business sense to have a physical market presence,” he added.

Akar also has marketing offices and representation across Saudi Arabia, Jordan, India, Singapore, the UK, France, Austria and Germany and is involved in the development, design, construction, marketing and management of a network of commercial and residential properties that offer significant value to investors and enhance the economy and landscape of Dubai.

The company offers its marketing expertise to other real estate owners through its overseas network.

Commenting on the increased international interest in UAE’s real estate market, Mr. Sultan remarked: “Investing in real estate in the UAE is considered a safe opportunity that reaps excellent return on investments. With low interest financing available, a stable currency and a booming economy with the country’s GDP projected to grow to a record AED 316 billion (US$ 86 billion) by the end of the year, all of the demographics point towards an increased demand for properties,” he said.

The Russian government’s efforts to advance structural reforms have raised the country’s economic prospects in recent years. The year 2004 marked the sixth consecutive year of growth for the Russian economy, which averaged 6.5% annually since the economic crisis of 1998.

The real estate market in the UAE is booming. Fuelled largely by a desire for sharper returns than properties in international markets. Investors are using their investments to leverage even larger properties, which stir up demand.

The property market in the UAE is growing with a mix of local, regional and international investors: individuals, funds, companies and real estate investment trusts. All of these have created an exceptionally aggressive market that is approaching record prices.

K. Hovnanian Homes’ Raleigh Division Revisits NewHome101 Campaign, Introduces New Website

New home buyers and apartment renters in Raleigh, NC now have the tools needed to help with the home buying process, thanks to K. Hovnanian Homes in Raleigh. The homebuilder is currently running its second year of NewHome101, a campaign that highlights the advantages of buying versus renting, and buying new homes as opposed to old. The new website, www.NewHome101.com, provides mortgage calculators, new home planners and helpful tips for purchasing a home.

RALEIGH, NC (PRWEB) August 9, 2021 -- K. Hovnanian Homes’ NewHome101 campaign, which helped lead the company to its best year in the Triangle area, has returned for 2005. Last year, the four-month campaign and the Newhome101.com website generated over 400 leads and 50 home sales in a four month period.

The marketing featured witty radio spots and direct mail pieces that created a buzz among apartment renters throughout the Triangle. Direct mail pieces, with a tongue in cheek nature, highlighted the undesirable drawbacks of renting, and promoted the satisfaction and pride that comes with homeownership.

The campaign demonstrated its appeal on a broader scale, as it brought the homebuilder 11 awards from local, national and international committees, and highlighted the Raleigh Division’s marketing efforts in national publications.

“The new plan is based on the same platform, but offers home buying solutions to a larger audience through additional components,” said Briggs Napier, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for K. Hovnanian Homes’ Raleigh Division. “We’ve revamped the NewHome101.com website, created a special section for Realtors, introduced incentives to homebuyers, and included options for first time and move up homebuyers looking for more valuable housing options.”

The NewHome101 website was originally designed to make its audience aware of the townhomes offered by K. Hovnanian Homes in six different communities throughout the Triangle, and to educate them about the ease and advantages of becoming a homeowner. The updated version now appeals to the move up audience by revealing the advantages of buying a newly constructed, technologically improved home versus an older house.

“Older homes can certainly claim a degree of ‘charm’ or ‘character,’ but we’ve often found that those homeowners gradually discover a lot more than they bargained for, as expressed in our radio spots,” added Jonathan Hayward, Sales Manager for K. Hovnanian Homes.

One tool that worked especially well with 20- and 30-somethings was the NewHome101 Organizer, a pocket folder full of tips for first time buyers, and a simple means to help keep home shoppers organized while applying for a mortgage and preplanning for the steps involved in the construction of a new home. An organizer is also available online, making the home shopping experience even more web friendly.

The campaign had the ability to educate and ultimately influence a discerning and financially apprehensive audience about one of the most difficult and monumental decisions in their lives. Napier believes it made the home buying process much less of a headache by taking the time to educate the audience about what it takes to become a homeowner. “NewHome101 will continue to give unhappy renters the luxury of making a sensible investment, and will now make current homeowners aware of the satisfaction of owning a newly constructed home,” he said.

MobileDataforce® Launches Intercue Publisher 2.0, Enabling Companies to Easily Update Mobile Employees with Electronic Forms

Intercue Publisher ensures consistency across the enterprise by allowing companies to track those who have, and have not, installed the latest updates.

Meridian, Idaho (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) August 9, 2021 -- MobileDataforce®, the leading provider of rapid application development solutions for mobile environments (RADS-ME), announces the release of Intercue Publisher v. 2.0 to enable companies to automatically distribute new and revised electronic forms on Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Palm OS, and Tablet PC devices, plus Windows XP laptop and desktop computers.

Companies that use handheld devices to collect data in the field experience a common problem: ensuring that a new or revised form is received and used by all employees. If employees are using different variations of the same work order, for instance, or do not have a new work order installed on their handhelds, numerous technical or administrative problems could result. Intercue Publisher solves this problem by automatically publishing all new and edited forms to all subscribed users and creates reports that offer details on the employees who have successfully received and installed the most recent updates.

Intercue Publisher enables companies to target specific devices that have been deployed across the enterprise for each update. With every form that is published, companies have control over which workstations and which mobile devices associated with those workstations will receive the new form.

“We developed Intercue Publisher to help manage the distribution of large numbers of electronic forms to mobile field workers with handheld computers,” says Kevin Benedict, CEO of MobileDataforce. “When you have remote users, many different electronic forms, and different versions of these forms, it is important to have an application like Intercue Publisher to bring order to this process.”

Echota Marks Halfway Point with 283rd Home Sale

Echota, a gated resort community in the mountains of Boone, North Carolina, reached its halfway point in new home sales. Echota is located within two hours of Charlotte, Hickory and Winston-Salem and approximately three hours from Raleigh.

BOONE, NC (PRWEB) August 9, 2021 -- Echota (www.EchotaNC.com), a gated resort community in the mountains of Boone, NC, reached its halfway point in sales last month, four years after it opened. The Foscoe Realty and Development community is also on pace for its best year for sales since its inception.

With the construction of Echota’s second phase - Echota on the Ridge - now underway, developer Mark Harrill expects the second half of the Adirondack-style homes to sell even faster. “The second home market has dramatically increased within the last few years, and more and more people are taking advantage of the properties the High Country has to offer,” said Harrill.

According to Foscoe Realty and Development, Echota’s second home market includes many buyers from the Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham and Greensboro - Winston-Salem markets who are seeking a home which can serve as a weekend getaway, and double as a rental property.

After selling 50 percent of its homes, the development company finds that homeowners give familiar reasons for buying in the High Country. “They can come relax and escape to a cooler climate,” said Tiffany Phipps, marketing coordinator for the development company. “These are professionals who just want to kickback, wear blue-jeans, and take in the convenience of a quiet haven that’s within just a few hours’ drive.”

Many homeowners spend several weeks at Echota each year, and then rent their homes out to vacationers during peak seasons. Foscoe Realty and Development provides the rental service, adding an additional opportunity for investment for second homeowners.

Echota features Adirondack-style townhomes, condominiums and single family homes in the heart of the High Country, a region known for its breathtaking mountain views. Echota on the Ridge will offer the same homestyles on a compelling setting along the incline of Echota’s surrounding mountains. The community’s amenities include a clubhouse with indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, hiking trails and stocked ponds for fishing. Developers, who recently broke ground on a new residents’ club and pool for Echota on the Ridge, noted that all amenities are reciprocal for both phases.

ABOUT ECHOTA
Echota is centrally located within minutes of Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk, and within two hours of Charlotte, Hickory and Winston-Salem. The recent completion of the new Interstate 40 makes Echota accessible from Raleigh in approximately three hours. For more information about Echota, call the sales center at 800-333-7601, or visit www.EchotaNC.com. The sales center is open Monday - Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Sundays 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Commercial Real Estate Lender Evaluates Whether the Condo Craze Over or is Just Heating Up

Pacific Security Capital, a leading Commercial Real Estate Investment Bank, has noticed that over the past few years condo activity has been hot, however many lenders are now concerned about the future stability of the condo market.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) August 8, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com -- Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, has noticed that over the last two years there has been so much condo activity that many commercial real estate lenders are starting to express concern over the future stability of condo markets.

Mike Myatt, executive managing director with Pacific Security Capital explains that “some lenders have recently found themselves over allocated in condominiums as a result of the recent activity and have therefore become wary of all but the best opportunities.”

Myatt adds, “While the best opportunities (typically in Florida, Southern California and select destination markets) are still attractive, developers in smaller markets are finding condos much more difficult to finance in recent months. Additionally some of the recent trends in the commercial real estate market do suggest some legitimacy surrounding concerns being voiced by underwriters. The single greatest concern is the extremely high prices being paid by condo converters for existing multi-family projects. When a sponsor purchases apartments at a price that won't allow the property to operate as a stabilized for rent property any negative change in market conditions could see conversion speculators being underwater in their properties.”

Warning signs aside, the reality is that many of the commercial real estate lenders expressing concern over the current state of affairs in the condo market are the lenders that have been the least active and have less knowledge about the asset class. Lenders familiar with the condo market are not as concerned about the opinions of their peers, but rather with the fundamentals of the projects and sponsors they underwrite.

Projects that demonstrate that they underwrite according to the following guidelines should be able to find financing even with the caution currently being expressed by some in the commercial real estate lending community:

1. Sponsor Suitability: Sponsors that have a successful track record of developing other condo projects will be looked upon more favorably than those who are building their first project. Having net worth and liquidity in reasonable proportion to the project size always helps as well.

2. Capital Structure: Projects that have a sufficient sponsor equity contribution will receive more interest than those projects looking to move aggressively up the leverage curve.

3. Entitlements: Projects that are fully entitled and permit ready will attract more interest than early stage projects.

4. Market Feasibility: How many units are you building vs. how many competitive units are currently available for sale. How many competitive units are coming online during the time period that your project is being built and how many units does the market absorb each year? What are your per square foot sales prices, how do they compare to the market, and is your location, construction quality and amenity package in line with that of comparably priced projects?

5. Marketing: Who is going to sell your units and do they have a strong track record of selling condos within the market you are building in?

6. Presales: What type of presales have you been able to generate? The higher the percentage of presales, the more are lender interest you will attract.

The bottom line is that good projects from good sponsors will always receive interest from the capital markets.

About Pacific Security Capital
Pacific Security Capital is a leading commercial real estate investment bank 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.

2005 Summer Heat Wave Makes ULTRA-Cool™ Roofs Even More Appealing

As the heat wave of 2005 continues throughout the United States, more and more homeowners are looking for ways to keep their homes cool without running up sky-high air-conditioning costs. The best solution, of course, is to prevent heat from entering the home in the first place – the approach that enables today’s new "cool roof" technologies to help reduce the cost of air-conditioning a home by up to 20 percent.

(PRWEB) August 8, 2021 -- As the heat wave of 2005 continues throughout the United States, more and more homeowners are looking for ways to keep their homes cool without running up sky-high air-conditioning costs. The best solution, of course, is to prevent heat from entering the home in the first place – the approach that enables today’s new “cool roof” technologies to help reduce the cost of air-conditioning a home by up to 20 percent.

“Homeowners in virtually all parts of the country are coping with record high temperatures this year – which means they could benefit tremendously from a roofing system that keeps the attic cooler,” said Tony Chiovare, president of Custom-Bilt Metals, a long-time leader in the painted metal industry. His company was one of the first manufacturers to incorporate cool roof technology in its metal shingles, metal shakes and standing seam metal roofing products.

“We believe this summer’s heat wave will make more and more homeowners realize how critical their roofing system is to the overall comfort and efficiency of the home,” Chiovare said.

Chiovare pointed to the results of one recent demonstration project, in which metal shakes coated with Custom-Bilt Metals’ ULTRA-Cool™ coating were found to reduce the amount of heat penetrating into a home’s attic by as much as 36 percent, offering significant savings in the energy required to cool the homes.

“Because less heat penetrates the roof, the attic remains cooler and, in turn, the heat leaking into the air-conditioned home drops,” Chiovare said.

Custom-Bilt Metals’ ULTRA-Cool coating is a high reflective finish developed by BASF Corporation’s Industrial Coatings Division. Like other cool roof technologies, the ULTRA-Cool finish works by reflecting a greater amount of the sun’s infrared energy, which accounts for more than half of the solar energy striking the roof surface.

Most painted metal roofs reflect about 5 to 20 percent of this energy, but cool roof coatings can increase this reflectance level to nearly 60 percent, according to tests by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Yet since infrared energy is invisible, the roof color is unaffected

“Each additional percentage point of reflectance reduces metal temperature by one degree, so the difference in temperature can be very dramatic, especially in medium to darker colors,” Chiovare said. A metal roof coated with a cool roof finish can be as much as 55 degrees cooler on a sunny day, he noted. These cooler roof temperatures can produce as much as 20 percent savings in air-conditioning costs.

“These important field tests demonstrate the tremendous energy-saving potential that cool roof technology can provide,” said Chiovare.

In addition to energy savings and lower utility bills, he noted that the ULTRA-Cool coating also provides other advantages to building owners including greatly improved fade resistance.

“Over 10,000 hours of accelerated exposure has proven these roofs are significantly more fade resistant than conventional roof coatings,” he said. “And, since these roofing systems remain so much cooler in even the hottest weather, the amount of heat expansion and contraction is also reduced, which will add to the roof’s durability and longevity.”

Chiovare said the national laboratories’ tests of his company’s roofing systems, coupled with this summer’s heat wave, have combined to convince him of the potential importance of cool roof technology.

“Metal roofing is already widely recognized for offering so many benefits, such as greater fire resistance, lighter weight, seamless integrity, color choice and longevity,” he said. “These benefits are now enhanced by the environmental and cost-saving advantages offered by ULTRA-Cool coatings.”

Custom-Bilt Metals has been a leading supplier in the painted metal industry since 1974, and currently stocks more than 2,000 different items in its 15 national branch locations. For more information on Custom-Bilt Metals or metal roofing systems in general, contact Tony Chiovare, president, at 1-800-826-7813, or visit the company’s Web site at www.custombiltmetals.com.

NH Post and Beam Kit Home Builder Featured on DIY Network Show "Assembly Required"

Yankee Barn Home's crews brave brutal New England winter in special two-part series about building post and beam home.

(PRWEB) August 7, 2021 -- In many parts of the country, icy winter conditions and below zero temperatures bring home construction crews to a cold halt. But that's not the case here in New England, where the indomitable Yankee spirit is alive and well in the construction of a new post and beam house in the dead of last year's brutal winter.

Yankee Barn Homes of Grantham, NH, and Millstream Structures of Newport, NH are featured braving the elements in a two-part series airing on the DIY Network's Assembly Required TV show on August 14, 2021 and August 21 at 2 pm as they rush to frame and enclose a post and beam barn-style home in five very cold days.

In this first of two episodes, the crew from Millstream Structures battles the elements with a post and beam kit from Yankee Barn homes, a young family decides if prefab is the way to go for their Vermont home, and builders who specialize in post and beam construction explain how they overcome challenges to stay on schedule. In the second episode, the crew continues their struggle against inclement weather as the family pushes forward to complete their post and beam home before ski season.

The DIY Network is owned by the Scripps Network and features cable programming for do-it-yourself projects, including home building; home improvement and woodworking.

About Yankee Barn Homes
Yankee Barn Homes manufactures award-winning custom post and beam barn-style homes at their factory in Grantham, NH which are then shipped and built worldwide. At the most recent HBRANH awards ceremony, seven Yankee Barn homes were recognized for excellence including two gold medals, three silver medals, and two bronze medal winners.

New Tape Provides Soundproofing to homes, buildings

Preventative Soundproofing for new Construction

(PRWEB) August 7, 2021 -- With all the new construction of subdivisions and office buildings springing up everywhere, why not take some preventative soundproofing measures during the construction phases of your new home of office building?

There is an easy and very economical way to add soundproofing to your new home or addition using a product from www.soundproofingamerica.com, called "stud and joist isolation tape."

This easy-to-use product is a tape that is 1 716" in width and can be taped to the joist or stud edge where the drywall screws to the stud or joist.

This tape actually isolates the wooden or metal structure from the wallboard itself and prevents sound transmission through the stud structure. One layer of the tape is all you'll need. It is extremely easy to apply and there are a variety of different applications for it.

If your stud and joists are 16" OC for example you could adhere a double layer of the tape to every other stud (32"OC) then only screw the drywall or wallboard only into the taped studs. This will make for less drywall to stud structure contact and actually gives you the same results as a staggered stud wall which is used in nearly all studio and home theater applications today.

This tape is very versatile and is inexpensive as well. The cost is $18.50 for a 100' roll of this remarkable tape.

This isolation tape should be mandatory in all multi-family dwellings. Call the Professionals at Soundproofing America when you're ready to begin any new construction. Thanks for reading about American Isolation Tape.

Soundproofing

The confusion in this country about how to soundproof your Home, office or industrial spaces.

(PRWEB) August 7, 2021 -- There is so much confusion out there as to which soundproofing products work best, where to find these products, and who can instruct me on how to install them for the best results? I hear these questions asked everyday.

The basic rule of thumb is that mass is needed for good soundproofing. Lead is undoubtedly the most massive and best soundproofing agent in the world, but we all know the hazards of leads use in regards to the EPA etc.

So if you don't want to use lead, what is your alternative. Well, I'm glad you asked. We carry a state-of-the-art material that is specifically designed to emulate lead sheeting, it is called mass loaded vinyl or (MLV) for short. Mlv is used in the place of lead sheeting or foil and generally has the same, if not better STC rating than does the lead. There is absolutely NO LEAD in MLV, so it is extremely safe in any home or industrial application. There is also no out gassing of this product whatsoever. MLV is a great soundproofing agent on it's own, but when used in conjunction with other soundproofing agents such as Roxul AFB or Roxul SAFE (mineral wools) or bonded acoustical cottons, MLV is a phenominal soundproofer.

MLV is a reflective barrier just as lead sheeting is a reflector. This is why absorbent materials such as the BA cotton or Roxul mineral batts work so well with the MLV.

These products are used in residential ceiling, walls and floor, they are also used in various industrial and commercial applications.

So, now that you know a little bit about MLV and it uses, where do you find it? Once again, I'm glad you asked. The professionals at www.soundproofingamerica.com are experts in the use and installation of MLV and MLV composite systems.

There are systems for home recording studio applications, home theater, and basement or garage soundproofing situations, you can even soundproof your car, boat or aircraft using MLV or MLV composite applications.

If you need answers about soundproofing, call the professionals at Soundproofing America, we fore go the sales hype and help you with the best and most economical soundproofing solutions on the planet. Put us to the test, and we'll prove to you that we are not the biggest, but we are definitely the best.

As Always,
Dr.Bob

“Today’s Family” to feature Superior Park Model Homes

Superior Park Model Homes, based in Pelham, GA, manufactures quality park model vacation homes.

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 7, 2021 -- – Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of Superior Park Model Homes for its innovative, educational television series, Today’s Family. The company will be featured in a segment on “Park Model Home Trends” for the Ultimate Family Outdoor Series.

Superior Park Model Homes, based in Pelham, GA, manufactures quality park model vacation homes that are primarily designed as temporary living quarters for recreation, camping, and seasonal use. They are small “cottage” homes ideally suited to any outdoor campground, mountain, beach, or lake setting. Park model homes are built on a single chassis, mounted on wheels and have a gross ground floor area not exceeding 400 square feet in the set-up mode. They are set up on a semi-permanent basis, so that families don’t have to hook and un-hook their units to travel with them. Some of the company’s high quality luxury models even offer amenities and upgrades that are otherwise not available in the market today, such as granite or solid surface countertops, stainless steel appliances and real ¾” tongue-and-groove oak hardwood floors.

John Sprague and Jim Sheehan started Superior Park Model Homes after already operating Everglades adventure RV and sailing resort and a licensed RV dealership, Florida Rustic Cabins. Over time they felt that the park model homes they were purchasing from several manufacturers did not meet the companies’ expectations of quality, amenities offered, and warranty. Therefore, they decided to take matters into their own hands and created a new company, Superior Park Model Homes, to manufacture the quality product which they intended to rent and sell.

Superior produces a nice base line as well as a unique, high quality luxury series in both log and vinyl. They have created two models, the Beachside series and the Big Lake Lodge series. The Beachside series is contemporary and modern in style and design, as well as a top value because of its quality components and construction. It offers durable and maintenance-free vinyl exterior, with plush carpeting in the living area and bedroom. The Big Lake Lodge series gives owners the best of both worlds in regard to appearance, quality, design and charm. It offers real wood logs, as well as real tongue-and-groove wood floors. Superior has recently created the new Mojave series, which is a stucco-sided luxury park home.
Their park model homes can also be ordered as a loft or super loft model, a new concept to be introduced on the show. These park model homes come with many interior upgrades, and can truly make one never want to leave.

Superior is a factory-direct source for high quality park model vacation homes. The company has an advantage due to its owners’ previous experience in the campground and resort field, as well as in the dealer business. They completely understand the needs of their clients and take pride in creating a home away from home. For more information, see http://www.superiorparkmodelhomes.com.

(PRWEB) August 7, 2021 -- With the events of September 11th 2001 still looming in that backs of our minds, many people don't feel as safe as they used to. The same is true in countries like Israel where the threat of attack is something they deal with on a daily basis.

Many of the dwellings in Israel have what is called a nuclear attack or simply a safe room. This is pretty much a lead lined room in the structure which would alleviate or at least minimize the radiation from a nuclear attack. These rooms are stocked with basic living supplies such as food wated and the other necessities of life.

This room would be used by the entire family in the even of a nuclear attack or any type of hostile enguagement.

These rooms are generally well soundproofed due to the extensive use of lead throughout the room. These rooms can ser a 2 fold purpose, they can be used for playing your music loud and not bothering neighbors, it can be a refuge of solitude for reading The Word of God (The Bible) or simply for deep meditation.

The fallout shelters of the 1950's are similar to most safe rooms, but are not generally within the confines of the home itself. It wasn't a bad idea in the 1950's and it is definitely not a bad idea in the year 2005 and beyond.

This concept might be something to consider, especially for people doing new construction in large urban areas near the East or West Coasts of the Continental United States. I thought this information might be of interest to people who are also considering soundproofing in their new digs.

Thanks and remember, for all of your soundproofing needs, contact the professionals at www.soundproofingamerica.com

August 13 Premier to Introduce Residential Phase of a New Tennessee Riverfront Community

Telliquah Preserve, an exclusive, gated residential/resort community of only 28 single-family residences on the banks of the Tellico River and at the foot of the scenic Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, will be unveiled to the public at a ‘priority selection event’ on Saturday, Aug. 13.

(PRWEB) August 5, 2021 -- Telliquah Preserve, an exclusive, gated residential/resort community of only 28 single-family residences on the banks of the Tellico River and at the foot of the scenic Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, will be unveiled to the public at a ‘priority selection event’ on Saturday, Aug. 13.

The event will be hosted by Tom Cormier, a resident of nearby Tellico Plains and president of Telliquah Resort Development, LLC. Cormier, who co-developed the highly successful Nestlenook Resort in Jackson, New Hampshire, said Telliquah Preserve will be dedicated to honoring and sustaining the area’s storied tradition and natural beauty.

“This specific parcel of land is like a precious jewel in an unpolished setting. Whether it’s the last of its kind or one of a kind, there will never be another place quite like this,” Cormier said

Telliquah Preserve is the first residential phase of the Telliquah community. In addition to the 28 private homes, it will feature exclusive amenities including a pool, walking trails, fitness trails and private parks.

Initial construction at Telliquah was completed last year and included Bistro by the River, an upscale restaurant, and Telliquah Outfitters, a guide service and outdoor equipment store specializing in fly-fishing gear. It also included a performing-arts pavilion and a park and walking trail built to take full advantage of the river and mountain views.

Guests at the Aug. 13 event will be pre-qualified and will have demonstrated a serious interest in purchasing one of these remarkable home sites. Anyone interested in more information or securing a priority selection placement should call (423) 253-7360 or toll free (866) 835-5426.

“The entire Telliquah experience is so unique and so appealing that initial interest has far exceeded our expectations,” said Cormier.

Lodge homes at Telliquah Preserve will be reached via a covered bridge over the Tellico River. “What’s truly remarkable is that all home sites are above the 100 year flood-plain,” Cormier noted, adding that home sites will range in price from $275,000 to $395,000.

The developer’s stringently controlled builder’s program will ensure all homes meet the approval of the community’s architectural review board. Strict aesthetic guidelines are in place in order to maintain the integrity of the historic mountain retreat.
Telliquah Preserve is nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, at the gateway to the Cherokee National Forest and the recently completely Cherohala Skyway. The Skyway was recently designated one of only 20 “National Scenic Byways”.

Although off the beaten path, Telliquah Preserve is only an hour from two major airports in Knoxville and Chattanooga. It is less than a three-hour drive from Atlanta and Nashville and five minutes from Tellico Plains.

Tellico Plains is home to about 900 residents and is known as “the town so quiet it doesn’t even have a traffic light.” The town features antique shopping, a nearby artist colony and a museum.

Tellico Plains is steeped in history. Originally the site of the Cherokee summer gathering place, it became home to a few hardy pioneers. The town and surrounding area is the subject of a book, The Disappearing Cemetery, by author and historian Tom Cordle.

Senate Bill Will Impact Michigan Builders

Senate bill 631 and 631 were introduced that will change the Michigan Residential Builders licensing requirements. 60 hours of education will be required before a license is issued and 21 hours of education will be required during each three-year renewal period. Fines and jail sentences will be stiffer on unlicensed builders.

(PRWEB) August 4, 2021 -- One June 22, 2005, Bills 631 and 632 were introduced to the Senate. If these bills pass, they will highly impact the Residential Builders Licensing requirements in the state of Michigan.

If the proposed legislation passes, license registration and renewal fees will be increased, and residential builders applicants will be required to complete 60 hours of education in the field prior to receiving a license, as well as another 21 hours of continued education throughout each three-year licensing period. Also, much stiffer fines and jail sentences will be imposed on those individuals who are caught performing work illegally in the building trades.

It is not yet known when these bills will pass, if they pass at all, however, Teri Francis, co-owner of The Builders License Class, Inc. states, "In my conversations with the State of Michigan, as well as educational institutions, it is expected that the bills will pass in some fashion, if not in their entirety. They could pass in six months or take two years." Teri also states, "Most likely, the builders licensing process will be very similar to the real estate licensing process."

The Builders License Class, Inc. currently holds an eight-hour course in 32 cities throughout Michigan that will prepare people to pass the current builders license exam. For information on a course near you, go to www.licensetobuild.com or call 1-800-727-7104.

Cyberlux Receives Commitment From Cabinet Manufacturer to Use Aeon Technology as New Standard

DreamWerks Design Studio to Use Cyberlux Aeon as Solid-State Lighting Solution in Kitchen Cabinet Line

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (PRWEB) August 4, 2021 -- Cyberlux Corporation announces that DreamWerks Design Studio, a custom kitchen cabinet manufacturer, has committed to use the Aeon Pro product as the lighting solution in all of its Aero-Strata contemporary kitchen cabinet line of products.

"DreamWerks Design Studio had the opportunity to review the Cyberlux Aeon Pro under-cabinet lighting and was so impressed with the product line, as well as the follow-up service the sales staff provided, that we decided to standardize on the Aeon Pro line as the lighting solution in our high-end, Aero-Strata contemporary kitchen cabinet line," stated Jon P. Brocksopp, president of DreamWerks Design Studio, LLC of Racine, Wis. "We build approximately 15 Aero-Strata kitchens a week in which we plan to use approximately 80 Aeon Pro lights, so for us to standardize on this product says a lot about the Aeon Pro solid-state lighting technology."

The Aero-Strata custom kitchen line of products is the contemporary kitchen cabinet solution that DreamWerks Design Studios produces for its discriminating customers who expect the best quality and the latest design innovations. As a lighting solution, the Aeon Pro solid-state task and accent lighting products address the three pervasive problems with traditional task and accent lighting -- short operating life, significant heat generation and energy inefficiency. The Aeon Pro products are maintenance-free with an industry-leading 15-year light-life guarantee, generate virtually no heat during extended operation and are energy-efficient, including the Aeon Pro E line which has exceeded California's Title 24 energy efficiency standards.

"We are delighted to receive the commitment to the Aeon Pro product line from DreamWerks Design Studio. The remarkable performance of the Aeon Pro technology was designed with a customer like DreamWerks in mind. We are excited to see the adoption of our solid-state lighting technology as their standard lighting solution in the Aero-Strata product line. The commitment of DreamWerks Design Studio to the Aeon product demonstrates the way our solid- state lighting technology will be adopted which emphasizes the significance of revenues associated with customers like DreamWerks and the Aeon dealer channel in general," said Mark Schmidt, chief operating officer and president of Cyberlux.

The Aeon task and accent lighting products are made with solid-state diodal elements and do not require bulbs. The result is a product that is maintenance-free, cool to the touch with long-lasting energy-efficiency. The Cyberlux Aeon Pro line provides the choice of a warm, 3000K white light or a cool, 5000K white light selection. With lighting sizes from 8 inches to 48 inches, the Aeon Pro products start at an average of $100 per unit.

The overall Aeon product line is comprised of three grades of products: Aeon, Aeon Plus and Aeon Pro.
- Aeon is the basic, easy-to-install, solid-state diode lighting fixture.
- Aeon Plus includes an additional variety of configuration possibilities to solve a large number of lighting needs.
- Aeon Pro is the top tier of the Aeon line. It includes multiple light rod lengths in addition to the configuration choices of the Aeon Plus.

Aeon dealers have strongly supported the introduction of the Aeon solid- state task and accent lighting products, including dealers in the top North American housing markets such as greater Chicago, Memphis, San Diego, San Francisco, Tampa, Sonoma County, and Toronto. The Aeon sales network is comprised of dealers and lighting industry professionals who meet a range of criteria including their market reach, years in business, annual revenue, customer base and their ability to effectively represent Aeon products with Cyberlux solid-state lighting technology.

Cyberlux is continuing to qualify dealers across the country to join its Aeon sales network. With dealers now in the top 25 North American housing markets, the Aeon dealer channel is expanding to cover the top 50 North American housing markets.

With the continuing expansion of the Aeon dealer network, customers can contact Cyberlux, either through the Cyberlux call center (1-800-939-CYBL) or the Web site for further information.

(PRWEB) August 3, 2021 -– Friendly Plumber is, above all, a real American success story. Robert Maiolo began the San Francisco company in the summer of 2000 with a mere $1,000 in start-up capital. From that small bit of seed money, Maiolo has grown the company into a plumbing service with no need to stand on shoulders to measure up to the giants in the industry.

Now the company is available for sale to someone with the plumbing know-how and business savvy to make the company a success beyond the Bay Area.

One secret to the company's great success is their remarkably visible web site. The web address, http://www.friendlyplumber.com, has scored high returns on all major search engines both in their local area and for more general plumbing related services since 2000.

Two factors figure prominently in the site's runaway success. First, a fetching happy face logo greets browsers coming to the site. Second, and more importantly, the site's ample do-it-yourself section, called Plumbing 101, has received awards as both a USA Today Hot Site of the Day and a Kim Komando's Radio Show Kool Site of the Day. Plumbing 101 contains a series of informational and instructional articles written in an accessible style conducive to fostering confidence in beginners. Furthermore, the site has received accolades from the International Association of Web Masters and Designers and Bay Insider.

The Company website, www.friendlyplumber.com offers free, unlimited advertising potential; giving special access to reach a diverse, ever-changing market segment audience through major search engines as Google, MSN, AOL, Yahoo and Netscape. It holds and has maintained top ten position for industry related key words such as “plumber,” “plumbing repair,” “plumbing home improvement,” “plumber California,” “plumber San Francisco,” and “plumbing tips” since its June 2000 inception.

Friendly Plumber's potential is not limited to the San Francisco area. Given the web site's massive Internet footprint, smart business people looking for a platform from which to launch a regional or national plumbing venture have a good basis for a beginning. Speculators looking for an address from which to launch a premium plumbing portal could not do any better than Friendly Plumber.

For details on the sale, please contact Robert F. Maiolo at (415) 242-8818.

Sublots.com Launches in Northeast Ohio; Provides Access to Building Permits as They're Issued

Sublots.com provides a complete online business suite for residential building professionals.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 3, 2021 -- Anyone involved in the residential housing market knows that finding new business opportunities often included a trip to a local building department to access the latest issued building permits. As of a few days ago that's all changed. Sublots.com provides real time access to all new residential building permits as they're issued -- in twelve Northeast Ohio counties.

After holding extensive focus group meetings with landscapers, cement, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and other residential housing subcontractors, Sublots formulated its initial go to market strategy. At start up the company planned to provide access to all new building permits in each community allowing subcontractors access to view permits for a monthly subscription fee to its website at www.sublots.com.

Today, Sublots.com not only offers access to view new building permits as issued, the site includes construction classifieds, construction job boards, the ability to get cash for your invoices within 48 hours, the ability for developers and builders to sell their lots directly, and the first of its kind cash back shopping that allows all members to receive a cash back rebate from shopping at nearly 400 online merchants.

Several weeks after its Northeast Ohio opening, Sublots.com already features 1376 new residential housing starts in 517 communities.

One of the Sublots.com founders, Dan Toth brings over 15 years of experience as an owner of a insulation contracting firm. Mr. Toth says "For years our insulation company as well as every other subcontracting company had sales people out there gathering building permits weekly as part of a standard and ongoing marketing effort for new business. Sublots.com eliminates that sales person for all of these companies. All for about the price of a cup of coffee a day."

According to Mr. Toth, "The initial driving force behind Sublots.com was access to building permits. However, after these focus group meetings we determined that the ability for a subcontractor to get paid within 48 hours, the ability for a member to get potentially thousands of dollars in cash back on building supplies, and equipment, and the other tools we've added to the site make it a complete business suite for residential building professionals."

Sublots.com has partnerships with over 400 online merchants that offer its members up to 20% cash rebates on building supplies, construction equipment, and much more. Members have the ability to sort new residential housing builds by square footage, by value, by builder, by community, and more.

The company plans to roll out additional services as it expands throughout the state of Ohio in 2005, and nationally throughout 2006.

Sealing the Deal...

Arizona's ProSource Wholesale Floorcoverings averages 4,000 square feet of Temperstone a month

(PRWEB) Aug. 3, 2005 -- Don Stoor knows flooring. So, when a sales rep he’d worked with in the past introduced him to an exciting new product designed to revolutionize the way natural-stone floors are protected and purchased, he was willing to listen. The product: TEMPERSTONE™ protected with TEMPERBOND™. The result: Stoor’s Phoenix outlet of ProSource® Wholesale Floorcoverings averages sales of more than 4,000 square feet of TEMPERSTONE™ travertine and slate per month. “We feel pretty good about it,” he says. Stoor has more than 30 years experience in the flooring business, mainly in wholesale distribution and manufacturing. Although not attracted to retail sales, he likes the idea of working with trade professionals, which is why he went to work for the owner of two ProSource® franchises in 1999.

Stoor explains that ProSource® grew out of the recognition that trade professionals didn’t always have a good vehicle to buy floor coverings. The franchise began in 1990 and today is one of the top wholesale distributors of floor coverings in North America. When one of his reps, who previously worked for a large importer of naturalstone tiles, left his employer but kept calling about a new line he was working on, Stoor’s interest was whetted. “Then, all of a sudden, he came to us with TEMPERSTONE™, and we took it on,” Stoor says. “We saw that TEMPERSTONE™ offers a different concept and that’s why we got involved.” The TEMPERSTONE™ concept, pioneered by John Spencer, hopes to mirror the success the carpet industry experienced with from-the-factory stain protection. The TEMPERSTONE™ line features a full line of stone products pre-treated with the technologically-advanced TEMPERBOND™ sealants under factory conditions, and offers a one-year warranty that John Spencer believes will increase consumer appeal for natural stone and overcome uncertainty buyers might have over choosing it over a synthetic product (such as ceramic tile). “I think most people like the concept that it’s already presealed,” says Stoor. “Once it’s installed you can go ahead and grout it without using a grout release, then seal the grout immediately, as opposed to waiting for seven-to-ten days after you grout it to seal it. It’s a time thing.”

Figuring in a cost of $2 per-square-foot to do after the grout sealing, Stoor says the TEMPERSTONE™ price is competitive and the customer service and support is extremely good, both to him as a wholesaler and to the end users receiving a one-year warranty with the installation of their floors. “After an order is placed, they send the final customer a care kit with sealer and cleaner at no charge,” says Stoor. “We’re also pleased with their service, whether it’s replacing a sample that’s broken or delivering a big order. People who provide service get our business, and it’s part of why we’re doing so well with them.” Stoor adds that he also appreciates the continuing efforts of his TEMPERSTONE™ rep to train his staff on the advantages of the product. While would-be buyers haven’t yet started to ask for TEMPERSTONE™ by name, thanks to an aggressive marketing campaign that brand recognition isn’t far in the future. Even so, Stoor says once people see the advantages the product offers, it’s certainly moving more of them away from other hard-surface floor options. “Travertine, especially, already has a perceived value in this market,” he says. “However, not everybody likes travertine because they don’t want the cost of upkeep later on. When we can offer something that’s presealed, well, we do sell quite a bit of TEMPERSTONE™. It’s a great selling point.” ¦

For more information on becoming a TEMPERSTONE™ distributor or on the nearest TEMPERSTONE™ distributor to you, contact TEMPERSTONE™ at (866) 490-7893 or visit the Website at www.temperstone.com.

Affordable Architectural Stained Glass Meets Design Challenges - Glass Made All the Difference

Esthetic Accents Offers first case study to document a breakthrough process in mass-customized stained glass production.

Portland, OR (PRWEB), August 2, 2021 -- Remodeling an older home often presents the owners with a series of challenges. Scott and Robin, home improvement professionals themselves, faced several. Since Scott is a long-time home improvement expert, one often featured on regional television lifestyle programming, they also knew how to get the help they needed.

Their house had great potential but realizing it would mean solving some tricky problems. The solution to many of the most difficult ones was found in the unique approach to stained glass provided by Esthetic Accents. Remarkably, the cost was a fraction of what it would have been if artisan stained glass were used. EA’s product line is highly attractive and durable, and can be manufactured to specifications within 90 days.

Because the house is located in particularly desirable area, the view from the house’s kitchen might not seem to be the sort of problem a homeowner should expect. But it was one – not only for Scott and Robin – but it is a concern for nearly 50% of our customers. The bay window was a major problem in this house. It provided a view all right, but one dominated by a stellar up close and personal view of one side of their next door neighbor’s house. It wasn’t at all what they had in mind. Whenever Scott or Robin were in the kitchen, the house next door was always there with them. The kitchen itself was striking. It had already been extensively remodeled, had huge bay windows, cushion-top tile, granite counter tops, and was always pleasant and filled with light.

To preserve the light and the overall style of the kitchen, Scott and Robin worked with Esthetic Accents to enhance its look with a stained glass window that would allow the sunlight to remain one of the kitchen’s most important natural design elements. It would also give them the privacy they wanted. As this was a new bay window, they did not want to replace the glass. Instead, they chose to install the stained glass against the existing glass. A clear tape was used on the top and bottom of each of six panels. A bead of clear silicon was used to seal the panels in place. The glass beautifully complemented the design of the rest of the room. It even took full advantage of the bronze and grey color scheme of the room and reflected the shape of the cushion tile used in the kitchen.

Other challenges were also overcome with Esthetic Accents unique stained glass solutions. Robin and Scott had a stunning antique hutch that was obviously made to house glass. The hutch is in the dining room adjacent to the kitchen. The problem was that it had only an empty place where the glass should be. This gave them an opportunity to choose a stained glass look that would perfectly complement all of the other design elements used in the kitchen. Something that would match it in uniqueness.

The look they chose was a surprisingly elegant chicken wire motif that fits the overall theme perfectly. Rooster figures were also placed in the front of the bay window over the sink in the kitchen to accent the look.

The kitchen also has a sitting area connected to it – with two sidelights and a French door that make use of a similar stained glass design glass for a look that is completely compatible with what was done in the kitchen. It serves to pull the two rooms together by using common design elements with the bay window. Because the sidelights and door are older, inserts were used to replace the existing glass.

The installation required the glazier to remove the old glass inserts and replace them with the new stained glass inserts. He removed old glass and old glazing tape and installed the new glass and tape. The installation was done in a fully professional manner and now provides complete weather sealing.

“It all works beautifully together,” says Robin. “The glass was the final touch. We now have a look that we enjoy living with every day.”

Scott adds, “As a professional, I am used to searching out solutions to touch design challenges. This works as well as any I’ve ever found.”

Esthetic Accents design professionals combine personalized service and the convenience of the Internet to provide excellent customer service nation-wide. Our online showroom and design center, toll free number and knowledgeable design staff make navigating through the design process straightforward and enjoyable.

The Chase Home Finance Mobile Homeownership Center Drives the Benefits of Home Ownership Into Urban Communities

The Chase Home Finance Mobile Homeownership Center, a retrofitted resource center, drives the benefits of African American and Hispanic homeownership by rolling into urban communities with mortgage specialists, educational workshops and financial counseling services handled by experts from the local community. The Chase Home Finance Homeownership Mobile is a collaboration between Chase Home Finance, Freddie Mac, and The Community College Foundation.

New York(PRWEB) August 3, 2021 -- The Chase Home Finance Mobile Homeownership Center, co-sponsored by Freddie Mac, is driving the benefits of African American and Hispanic homeownership through its financial literacy tour into major urban communities in the East, Midwest and South.

Although African American and Hispanic homeownership has increased during the last decade, the April 2005 U.S. Census indicated that African American homeownership is at 48.8 percent and Hispanic homeownership is at 49.7 percent, both lag behind the 69.1 percent homeownership rate of the U.S. population.

“This is an important opportunity to educate communities on the home buying process so people can start building equity through homeownership,” explained Tom Garvey, Executive Vice President, Chase Home Finance. “This is a significant part of Chase Home Finance’s $500 billion Chase Dream Maker CommitmentSM launched in 2003. It is a pledge to help millions of traditionally underserved minorities and communities by increasing home financing across the full economic spectrum—from low to moderate income borrowers. Homeownership is instrumental in building wealth and financial stability.”

Already, the Chase Home Finance Mobile Homeownership Center has rolled its retrofitted resource center into African American and Hispanic communities in Pennsylvania, Georgia, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. This summer, it will be situated in communities throughout Chicago. The Chase Home Finance Mobile Homeownership Center features mortgage specialists, educational workshops and financial counseling services handled by experts from the local community. Onboard is access to a broad range of home finance solutions: online information on the home buying process to mortgage approval from Chase Home Finance professionals. In addition, there is credit counseling and free check-ups on credit scores.

The Chase Home Finance Homeownership Mobile is a collaboration between Chase Home Finance, Freddie Mac, and The Community College Foundation. Additionally, Chase Home Finance has partnered with local housing and credit counselors, real estate professionals, city housing departments, churches and schools in each community.

“The Mobile Homeownership Center brings information directly to where people live, work, play and pray,” said Bob Tsien, senior vice president of Freddie Mac. “We are proud to be working with Chase Home Finance on this unique approach to help people learn the facts about homeownership.”

With the 2004 merger of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank One Corp., Chase Home Finance’s parent company now includes more than 2,500 Bank One and Chase bank branches in 17 states. Chase Home Finance, an Equal Housing Lender, is headquartered in Iselin, New Jersey and is one of the nation's largest residential mortgage lenders, serving more than four million customers.

Freddie Mac is a stockholder-owned company established by Congress in 1970 to support homeownership and rental housing. Freddie Mac fulfills its mission by purchasing residential mortgages and mortgage-related securities, which it finances primarily by issuing mortgage-related securities and debt instruments in the capital markets. Over the years, Freddie Mac has made home possible for one in six homebuyers and two million renters in America. For more information about Freddie Mac, visit www.freddiemac.com.

Commercial Real Estate Loans and the Impact of Rising Interest Rates on Commercial Real Estate

Pacific Security Capital, a leading commercial real estate investment bank, addresses the impact of rising interest rates on commercial real estate loans.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) August 1, 2021 -- http://www.pacificsecuritycapital.com -- Pacific Security Capital (“PSC”), a leading commercial real estate investment bank, headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, addresses the impact rising interest rates could have on commercial real estate loans and the commercial real estate market overall.

There has been no shortage of conversation surrounding the topic of rising interest rates in the commercial capital markets over the last two years. Mike Myatt, Executive Managing Director of Pacific Security Capital explains that “the reason for all the column fodder is that interest rate movement has a direct impact on the state of capital markets supply and pricing and can have a very real impact on the overall commercial real estate market.”

As a baseline for a deeper analysis it is useful to have a macro-economic understanding of what happens to property level supply and demand drivers and the resultant impact on Net Operating Income (NOI) in a rising interest rate environment. As a general economic principal when interest rates rise the cost of new construction increases thereby slowing the number of construction starts and depleting new supply of product coming online. This scenario in turn causes an increase in overall market absorption rates and creates a “landlord’s market” environment.

Myatt adds that “the environment which favors the landlord creates an opportunity for property owners to increase rents thereby allowing NOI growth to keep pace with any escalation in interest rates. While this scenario is favorable to existing property owners and making the rise in interest rates less of a concern, the impact to developers and tenants is detrimental and can have a negative overall impact on the economy if a high interest rate environment lasts for any length of time.”

At a more micro level some of the major issues surrounding the impact of increasing interest rates on commercial real estate loans and commercial capital markets are addressed below:

Flow of Funds: In a low interest rate environment real estate provides a reasonable investment alternative to other low yielding asset classes. With rising interest rates the supply-side availability of capital marked for commercial real estate will constrict. The aforementioned contraction will be due to a combination of reduced demand for new supply as weaker developers are weeded out of the market and alternate investment opportunities in other asset classes begin providing a better yield while being perceived to have less risk when contrasted to commercial real estate investments.

Loan Pricing, Sizing and Cost of Funds: The overall blended cost of capital will increase dramatically. This dramatic increase will come not only as a result of rising rates across underlying indices but moreover as a result of lower advance rates in the senior position shifting a higher percentage of the capital structure up in the leverage curve. The reduction in LTV and LTC advance rates will cause a borrower to rely more heavily on mezzanine and equity financing resulting in shift from the current “borrower’s market” climate to a “investor’s market” environment.

Investment Sales: Sales of investment grade properties will slow rapidly as many of the buyer’s in today’s low interest rate environment will move to the sidelines. Institutions and REITS will remain active buyers while many of the individual investors will be forced from the investment sales market. Default rates will climb and more distressed property will come onto the market as investors who leveraged up on floating rate debt during the low interest rate environment will have a hard time keeping control of property as their debt service obligations increase.

Commercial real estate owners who believe that interest rates will rise substantially and will remain elevated for any period of time should be looking to refinance short-term commercial real estate loans, floating rate debt with long-term fixed rate debt. Buyers looking to acquire investment property should look for assets with upside potential for NOI growth through improved management and upside pop in leasing opportunities.

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.

Hardwood Floors: A Realtor's Goldmine

Hardwood flooring is a common element of success in the sale of a property. In a study conducted by iFLOOR.com, a number of realtors agree that highlighting hardwood flooring in listing descriptions attracts more buyers.

(PRWEB) August 1, 2021 -- For realtors everywhere, the backbone of any sale is effective marketing. With the cutthroat competition in real estate, the property you are selling has to have an edge over others, and the flooring you have just might make the difference.

Hardwood flooring is a common element of success in the sale of a property. In a study conducted by iFLOOR.com, a number of realtors agree that highlighting hardwood flooring in listing descriptions attracts more buyers.

This is further supported by a survey from The National Wood Flooring Association, which indicates that 90% of realtors find that homes with wood flooring sell faster and for higher prices than houses without wood floors. Anita Howard, the organization's Communications Director, adds that 32% say that it increased home prices by 2-5%, while 10% say that wood floors boost the value of homes by about 6-10%. About 2% of realtors say that it helps properties top the price of others in the area by more than 10%.

Even real estate appraisers agree. Says Jake Boeger of Boeger Real Estate Appraisers, "Adding updated hardwood flooring can add to a home's overall condition." He adds a note of fair warning though, "I always stress to homeowners that they need to research their market to find how much homes in good condition are selling over homes in average / poor condition."

Charles Loo, an appraiser from Orange County, CA says "I think a real, solid hardwood floor increases the value of a home." Based on the feedback from a group of appraisers and realtors surveyed in the study, there is a clear consensus that an investment in hardwood flooring is a good way to boost a home's valuation, and sell that property more quickly.

Since the early '90s, hardwood flooring has been making waves, capturing a quarter of the market share once dominated by wall-to-wall carpeting. Today, sales for this type of floor continue to grow at an exponential rate. iFLOOR.com, the largest internet-based flooring store, has been at the receiving end of this upswing in demand. According to Steve Simonson, CEO, since its inception, the company has grown by 5,900%. Hardwood flooring makes up 29% of the company's sales.

Modular Construction - Do You Mean Trailer?

How do you design a modular building so that it looks like a planned addition and not a temporary trailer?

(PRWEB) July 31, 2021 -- The best approach is to make the modular building blend into the existing campus by building the new modular building so that it will mimic the predominant architectural features of your main facility. This is easily done because modular construction offers a wide variety of exterior veneers that allow the modular building to seamlessly blend in with its architectural surroundings.

A question that is often asked is what's the cost difference between a professionally- designed modular building compared to a temporary trailer or skid structure? Literally, the cost is just pennies per-square-foot. Another common question is what’s the resale potential for a modular building compared to a temporary trailer or skid structure? State-approved modular buildings have a strong secondary-use market. Site-constructed skid buildings and non-coded trailers do not. It just does not make sense to waste your money on a trailer or skid when, for pennies per-square-foot more, you can have a professionally-designed facility.

What most modular construction projects lack is a plan to integrate the modular building into the property. We refer to this plan as the Installation Criteria and it allows you the opportunity to seamlessly blend the modular building with your site. The Installation Criteria will determine whether or not your modular building will add value to your property and look like a planned addition or resemble a temporary trailer. The following key elements are evaluated in order to determine the best method for installation:

* What are your project objectives?
* What are you trying to achieve by the use of the facility?
* What is the timeframe for anticipated use?
* What is the timeframe if the need is extended?
* How much of your budget do you want to dedicate to site development?
* What are the existing site conditions and your slope of grade?
* What are the defining architectural features around the building site?
* What is the best way to use these features to accent your modular building?

Consider how the physical design of your workplace has a powerful effect on the productivity of your faculty and students. If you offer them an attractive and functional environment, it will open up the path for learning and productivity. It is a proven fact that people respond differently to various colors, shapes and textures. Create a comfortable, quiet, safe haven to grow and learn for your faculty and students. You must minimize distractions and maximize stimulus. Different types of facilities encourage a variety of new behaviors. Create an environment that will foster a positive reaction from your students and staff.

Allow for the possibility that your project may exceed its original plan of a short-term solution. It is quite common for a short-term space needs to develop into long-term additions to your property. Plan for a long-term space solution and enjoy the increased aesthetic appeal over the short-term. Use landscaping around your modular building. Add depth, color and texture to an ordinary flat surface with small trees and shrubs. Create an impressive entrance into your modular building by using auxiliary structures such as a portico or porch. Take your visitor's eye away from the square lines of the modular building with interesting supplementary features. Create an attractive egress design that uses your slope of grade to develop a functional and appealing entrance.

Your temporary space project is much more than just generic specifications and a basic floor plan. Any factory can construct a modular building, but it takes imagination, creative design, complete customer need evaluation and overall project planning to create a successful modular project. Plan in advance for the long-term situation and utilize the benefits in the short-term. Take the time to properly plan your modular construction project and enjoy the fruits of your labor for years to come.

(Dallas Contracting) providing an excavator and an onsite concrete crushing plant to crush 5,000 tons of concrete, asphalt and brick into 2 inch minus material to be used for onsite backfilling. The work had to be completed quickly as the client had a backfilling deadline that had to be met.

To accomplish this task, Dallas Contracting utilized a Komatsu PC220LC excavator with bucket attachment and an UltraMax 1000-15CV Plant (manufactured by Eagle Crusher Company, Inc.). The Ultramax is a 3 stage portable crushing unit that has a feed hopper size of 11 cubic yards and is powered by a 275HP Diesel and 75KW generator. The typical throughput for the crushing plant on material of this nature is about 1000+ tons per day.

The materials were first sized to 2 feet x 2 feet in order to fit into the feeder. The materials where then fed into the hopper utilizing the Komatsu excavator. Rebar from the concrete is sorted out from the aggregate material via an onboard magnet. The rebar is discharged to the side and the crushed materials are discharged towards the rear. The crushed aggregate material was sized to 2 inch minus.

Due to the client’s timetable, all materials needed to be crushed as soon as possible in order to meet their backfilling schedule. Dallas Contracting was able to meet the client’s tight schedule and all 5,000 tons of materials were crushed in five (5) days. The crushed aggregate was immediately utilized by the client for onsite backfilling. The project was completed on schedule and without incident or injury.

Our concrete aggregate and asphalt crushing services offered the client many benefits including:
* Environmentally friendly - conserve landfill space
* By utilizing the crushed aggregate materials onsite as fill material, it saved the client a substantial amount of money by not having to import backfill materials or send the original materials offsite for disposal.

New Visitors Center in Rhode Island

Lusi Construction is nearing the final stages of the Blackstone Valley Gateway Center in Lincoln, RI. An open house was held yesterday to showcase the project.

Lincoln, RI (PRWEB) July 30, 2021 -- The Blackstone River State Park Visitor Center is nearing completion. The Center is located in the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. In appreciation of all the people who are responsible for this exciting project, A. F. Lusi Construction, general contractor, hosted an old-fashioned cookout attended by dignitaries, elected offices, subcontractors and the project crew.

The 10,000 square foot building is the northern anchor for the statewide bike path. The visitor center will be completed at the end of September. The grounds including parking and bike path will be done at the end of November. In addition to the visitors’ center, it holds offices for the RI State Police, the RI Department of Environmental Management and an up-scale Federal image Dunkin’ Donuts with wainscoting and granite counter tops and tables. The project is 85% funded by the U. S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration.

The main area of the distinctive facility includes a map of the Blackstone River Valley in a nine-color terrazzo floor.

According to Armand Lusi, President of Lusi Construction, “This is a unique and wonderful project for the State of Rhode Island that gives our state a memorable stop-over for visitors crossing our border. We are pleased that the state procured this project through sealed competitive bidding using a single prime contractor. This is the only proven, objective procurement method that ensures the best value for the state.”

The project began last fall when Lusi used ground thaw equipment to work through the very harsh winter. Project Manager Scott Lindemann stated, “This project is going exceptionally well. The design was especially enjoyable for us to build because its post and beam frame provided variety from the steel-frame construction that makes up the bulk of our work.”

The architect for the project is Providence-based Robinson Green Beretta Corporation.

Established more than fifty years ago and located in Smithfield, RI, A. F. Lusi Construction, Inc. is a general contractor best known for its exemplary work on public buildings such as the restoration of the Federal Court House in Providence, RI, the construction of the Bradford R. Boss Arena at the University of Rhode Island, the Center General complex at the Howard Complex in Cranston, RI. Lusi is currently constructing the Center of Excellence School for Meeting Street School located in Providence, RI.
