Winslow Geo Anchor “Bridges” Stream as Alternative to Concrete Piers New Application Enables Development of Prime Hillside Lots and Provides 50% Cost Savings

Pacific Housing Systems' Winslow Geo Anchor was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading) project in Walnut Creek, CA (about 25 miles east of SF) was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading). Pacific Housing Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of next generation foundation, floor and core solutions for residential homebuilders developing projects where marginal soil is prevalent. Its solutions enable developers to increase the speed, quality and quantity of new home deliveries and maximize their market share of new housing starts.

Pleasant Hill, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- Pacific Housing Systems today announced the completion of its portion of a project in Walnut Creek, CA (about 25 miles east of SF), where its Winslow Geo Anchor was used for the foundation of a 70-foot bridge (H20-44 loading).

The span is now being built, and will cross a good size stream, enabling the development of two prime hillside lots that were previously restricted due to the simple inability of transporting materials from one side to the other. 14 anchors were used in the foundation - seven on each side - instead of 20 piers initially architected. The structure will easily meet the 37-ton load (enough to support a county fire engine) requirement, as "each" anchor has been tested at 50 tons capability.

Rick Kolby, principal of the group developing the project, Tice Valley Partners, said, “In addition to the nearly 50% we saved in materials and labor, the Winslow Geo Anchor had no impact on the stream itself. It was easily installed, is environmentally friendly and extremely structurally sound -- factors made the code and review process easy. In essence, we were able to provide a much better look and feel to the entire area, and that will be a huge benefit as the years go by and future households enjoy the residences.”

Kinetic Concepts, Inc. Opens Doors On R&D; Lab / Call Center in San Antonio, Texas

New building for KCI is an 80,000 SF new building and finish-out, featuring Research Lab and call center space, offices and a large gallery where KCI's 90+ patents are showcased. This building represents the 44th successful commercial building project for Developer CMC - Commercial Realty Group and General Contractor Bob Moore Construction.

Arlington, TX (PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (KCI) manufactures more than 40 products that improve advanced wound care by accelerating the healing process or preventing complications. With more than 4,000 employees worldwide, KCI's revenues for their two top product lines were $764 million in 2003, a 32% increase from 2002. KCI, which became a publicly traded company in 2004, is growing fast and expanding their need for facilities of all types.

By 2004 KCI needed new space for offices and research and call center facilities. They turned to CMC – Commercial Realty Group and Bob Moore Construction to create a new 80,000 building in San Antonio's University Park. Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects designed the building; Rehler, Vaughn & Koone designed the interior.

"We have great relations with KCI and this is our second building for them,” said Subash Gaitonde, Partner / Principal of CMC. “KCI needed the building shell and finish-out completed in just seven months. Even though we lost 30 days to rain, Bob Moore brought it in on time and in budget."

The building features a gallery that showcases some of KCI’s products and the 90+ patents the company has received. A large R&D; Lab provides facilities for developing innovations for KCI’s Vacuum Assisted Closure® Therapy System, specialty hospital beds and therapeutic surfaces. The building also features 35,000 SF of call center space to support the company’s patient financial services, and multiple private offices. The overall design focuses on open spaces, with high ceilings and indirect lighting, to provide a comfortable environment for employees and guests.

“We knew in advance the schedule would present a challenge,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “Because of this we hand-picked the subcontractors and that paid off, especially with all the bad weather we experienced. They certainly rose to the challenge. Our superintendent, Quinton Grudzinski, was a big part of the success as well. The number of overtime hours he put in was phenomenal. Chuck Williams with KCI really knew what he wanted, and was able to communicate that very effectively to the entire team.”

The KCI building is the latest in a long list of successful commercial buildings constructed for CMC – Commercial Realty Group by Bob Moore Construction.

“We have used Bob Moore Construction exclusively since we founded our company in 1990,” added Jesse Pruitt, Partner / Principal of CMC. “We stay with the relationship because of the quality service they provide.”

Subash Gaitonde agreed. “Jesse and I worked with Bob Moore Construction before CMC was formed, in the mid-1980s,” he said. “We hired Bob Moore Construction for a single project, and they did a great job. We used them again, and again. When we formed CMC in 1990 we stayed with Bob Moore and have ever since. Today, 20 years later, we view Bob Moore Construction as an extension of our own team when we present to clients.”

The relationship has generated 44 successful commercial building projects across the United States. San Antonio’s University Park Business Park alone includes five separate buildings owned by CMC and built by Bob Moore Construction.

“We’ve worked with Subash and Jesse for 22 years,” said Phillip Bell, President of Bob Moore Construction, “and we’ve completed more separate projects for them than for any other client. We’ve built for them from San Antonio to New York, from small office buildings to major distribution centers. Regardless the project, we’ve always enjoyed our dealings. Our relationship with Subash and Jesse is certainly one that we cherish, and we look forward to constructing many more buildings with CMC in the years to come.”

Vancouver, BC, Canada (PRWEB) February 24, 2022 -- Minaean International Corp. (TSX VE: MIB), the Canadian-based developer of alternative building technologies using light-gauge steel, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Minaean Building Solutions Inc., are pleased to announce that they have been awarded through their joint venture subsidiary in New Delhi, India, the contract for the construction of a 30,055 square foot building for the Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University at Rajouri, in the north Indian State of Jammu.

The construction of this project will be carried out in three phases over a period of six months. The total value of the project is approximately $475,000. It is anticipated that the satisfactory completion of this project will lead to a further order for an additional university complex to be attached to the present one. The value of this further contract would be approximately $1,000,000

“The selection of Minaean by this prestigious client is a significant addition to Minaean’s portfolio of projects in India”, says Minaean Chairman, Mr. Hari Varshney. “It is an important step in the Company’s expansion into northern India.” The award of this contract comes a month after Minaean was awarded the contract for the construction of dormitories for the highly regarded “Sri Matha Vaishno Devi” temple project in Kashmir. With Minaean’s light gauge steel panel and framing system being highly adaptable to the hilly regions due to its versatility and light weight, it is seen as a revolutionary type of construction system compared to the conventional brick and mortar system which cannot be easily used in the mountainous areas of India.

KL Design Group Completes Design of the Pearl Wine Shop and Bar Mestizo at Andina Restaurant

KL Design also developed the corporate identity, and architectural and materials selection for both Bar Mestizo (www.andinarestaurant.com) and The Pearl Wine Shop (www.thepearlwineshop.com)

(PRWEB) February 18, 2022 -- Portland-based KL Design Group has completed the renovation of Bar Mestizo at Andina Restaurant, as well as the design of The Pearl Wine Shop, a retail wine shop and private dining cellar in the lower courtyard of the historic Pennington building. “I try to alter the design landscape of Portland with each restaurant or hotel project,” says Kyle Lynch, principal and founder of KL Design Group. “I create unique places with an urban and sophisticated aesthetic that moves people out of the familiar.” KL Design also developed the corporate identity, and architectural and materials selection for both Bar Mestizo (www.andinarestaurant.com) and The Pearl Wine Shop (www.thepearlwineshop.com)

Latin Flair at Bar Mestizo:
Kyle Lynch took the existing bar area at Andina and transformed it into a lively space for lunch, happy hour or late night dining. KL Design added new banquettes along one side of the room, a sandstone fireplace, intimate booths, and communal wooden tables with an inset “lazy susan” element for sharing Andina’s small plate appetizers. KL Design also incorporated a raw bar station into the bar and designed a jamon cart for tableside preparations of butifarras, a Peruvian tradition of cooked ham sliced and served to order on a house-made quinoa roll. “Bar Mestizo presents customers with a different version of Andina’s popular Peruvian cuisine,” says Lynch. “The redesigned bar is more approachable and creates a separate vibe from the main dining room.”

Cellar Dining in The Pearl Wine Shop:
This cellar-like wine shop combines a retail space with an intimate setting for private dining events. Located on the lower level of the Pennington Building, beneath Andina, the Pearl Wine Shop offers audiovisual elements for business meetings, as well as the artistic ambience found in one of the neighboring art galleries. The 21 featured wines are presented along a fir mantel accented with lighting from above to emphasize each bottle. “It is a minimalist design with a touch of rustic, wine cellar décor with a knotty alder table seating 16, high-backed Mediterranean chairs, tumbled slate walls and a walnut floor.”

About KL Design Group:
Kyle Lynch founded KL Design Group in 1998 as a multi-faceted studio offering interior, architectural and landscape design, as well as web design and development for both private and commercial clients. Clients include: fivespice, Gower St. Bistro, St. Honoré Boulangerie, Vault Martini, Tucci Restaurant, Cannon Beach Hotel and Tututun Lodge.
