The project was sited on a low lying wetland that demanded consideration due to a high water table. The solution to this problem was to elevate the house three feet above existing grade and to utilize an insulated slab on grade to avoid the probability of fostering mold growth in a crawl space. The Architectural water features we used to enhance the project while at the same time provided positive drainage.Save this picture!© Roger Wade StudiosAdditionally, the client wanted to avoid remove any of the mature trees on the site and still capture the view to the mountain range to the north. Careful siting allowed both objectives to be attained. Low energy consumption was a goal and this was attained utilizing an open loop ground source heat pump for both heating and cooling. Indoor temperatures are conserved utilizing R-40 and R-65 wall and roof assemblies.Save this picture!© Roger Wade StudiosCarbon footprint issues were addressed by utilizing 100% reclaimed material for the exterior siding and otherwise specifying materials that required no maintenance ie: cor-ten roofing and fascia detailing. New wood that was used received a water soluble “lifetime” finish that slowly weathered to a protective base coat over time. Wood sash windows of teak further reduced the exterior maintenance issues. Save this picture!© Roger Wade StudiosInterior finishes were selected for their low VOC content as well, with all casework being finished in an organic vegetable based oil material. Renewable bamboo is utilized throughout the house as well as a ceiling material. Electrical consumption was reduced by specifying LED technology in all of the public spaces and high output halogen light elsewhere.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessRenova Energia Proposal / Sotero Arquitetura e UrbanismoArticlesEscola Senai Proposal / NPC Grupo ArquiteturaArticles Share Photographs:  Roger Wade Studios Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project EHA Family Trust Residence / Ward+Blake ArchitectsSave this projectSaveEHA Family Trust Residence / Ward+Blake ArchitectsSave this picture!© Roger Wade StudiosHouses•Wilson, United States ArchDaily Year:  Manufacturers: European Home+ 13 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/310821/eha-family-trust-residence-wardblake-architects Clipboard United States Houses 2011 Area:  3 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” Architects: Ward+Blake Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/310821/eha-family-trust-residence-wardblake-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWard+Blake ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodWilsonHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 30, 2012Cite: “EHA Family Trust Residence / Ward+Blake Architects” 30 Dec 2012.

Since Julius Shulman immortalized his houses in his iconic photographs, Neutra’s bright, airy homes have widely been seen as the pinacle of modernism and desirability. One problem though, they’re in high demand and it’s not exactly like they’re making any more Neutra buildings; in fact, quite the opposite is true and as a result they have become a pretty expensive commodity.Read more about how to get your very own Neutra home after the break… Save this picture!Case Study House No.6 / Richard Neutra; Model by Jack Eddington © Julius SchulmanHowever, all that is about to change thanks to a new partnership between his son, Dion Neutra, the Neutra Office and California Architecture Conservancy, who have enabled regular Joe-sixpack license the right to build their very own Neutra-designed home.

Congressman wants President to Address Propane Issues

first_img Rep Kind on propaneIndiana Governor Mike Pence has taken action as a result of the propane fuel crisis, and now one lawmaker wants help from the President. As farmers, homeowners and propane suppliers struggle with a sharp drop in supply and the resulting spike in prices, Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind is asking President Obama to direct the Federal Government to address the current propane crisis.“This week I’m sending a letter to the President asking him to direct all the federal agencies, all hands on deck approach in order to address the crisis that we have right now when it comes to supply lines, the fuel lines, also export issues that are affecting the supply domestically, and what we can do in the future in order to avoid being caught flat footed and seeing this huge spike in domestic fuel costs for families.”Kind would like to see the Department of Energy explore a strategic propane reserve.“Does that make sense for propane? Should we have a strategic reserve when we get this polar vortex coming down as we have, unusually this winter, but because of the cold weather. It’s not just the upper Midwest. It’s also the southern states that are consuming a lot more fuel to deal with their heating needs which is very unusual. That’s what’s obviously led to supply shortages. But I also think we need to look at the tremendous increases in the exports that we’ve seen in the market lately. That too has limited domestic supply for when we need it.”Kind also believes that the export subsidies for the energy companies should be reduced or removed and that there will be a debate over the export of the increased oil and gas production here in the U.S. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Congressman wants President to Address Propane Issues SHARE Facebook Twitter Congressman wants President to Address Propane Issues SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jan 30, 2014 Previous articleWays for Producers to Conserve PropaneNext articleTen Considerations: The Role of Crop Insurance in the Farm Safety Net Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Government of Canada supports Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore energy sector workers

first_img Canadian government to support offshore energy sector workers. (Credit: Pixabay/Keri Jackson.) Canada’s energy sector supports hundreds of thousands of middle class families and their communities. COVID-19 and global price instability have caused unprecedented challenges for workers and companies in the offshore energy sector in Newfoundland and Labrador.In response to the significant economic and financial distress facing the province’s energy sector, the Honourable Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, on behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, has announced $320 million in funding, towards an agreement with the provincial government, to support Canadians with offshore energy jobs. This agreement will allow the province to support workers through activities such as safety improvements, maintenance and upgrades of existing facilities, and research and development.This aligns with the $1.72 billion investment that was announced in April 2020 to clean up orphan and/or inactive wells in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. An additional $750 million was provided to establish an Emissions Reduction Fund to reduce emissions in Canada’s oil and gas sector, with a focus on methane. Of this amount, $75 million was allocated to the offshore sector.Today’s announcement is in addition to the government’s intent to extend the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), recently announced in the Speech from the Throne. Since being unveiled, the CEWS – together with other elements of the government’s Economic Response Plan — has helped Canadians in the natural resources sectors, and all sectors, be able to keep their jobs and keep putting food on the table during the economic downturn. The CEWS has been helping protect more than 3.5 million jobs at businesses of every size, in every corner of this country.The agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador will work to re-affirm Newfoundland and Labrador’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions.Quotes“Our Government knows that resource- based provinces are facing a double hit from the pandemic and historically low commodity prices and that workers are facing real challenges.  Today’s financial support for Newfoundland and Labrador’s energy sector will help stimulate employment and support middle class families and their communities.”– The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance“We believe in our workers. We believe in this industry. And we believe in its future. This is about jobs. This is about ensuring a prosperous future for our offshore.”– The Honourable Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources Source: Company Press Release The agreement will allow the province to support workers through activities such as safety improvements, maintenance and upgrades of existing facilities, and research and developmentlast_img read more

Two additional members of the Group, the Norwegian mine hunter HNoMS OTRA and the Estonian mine hunter ENS ADMIRAL COWAN, will rejoin the Group in time for BALTOPS.During the port visit, Commander Brassel and the SNMCMG1 staff will meet with Swedish Navy officials and participate in the final preparations for BALTOPS.“This visit reinforces NATO’s strong maritime ties with Sweden,” said Commander Brassel. “In recent weeks we had the pleasure of joining together in a port visit to Riga, Latvia, and conducted a passing exercise with Swedish Navy vessels while en route to Tallinn, enhancing our interoperability between our naval forces.”In addition to the activities Commander Brassel mentioned, the Swedish Navy was recently a vital contributor and participant in NATO’s triennial submarine rescue Exercise DYNAMIC MONARCH, hosted by the Polish Navy in May. The Swedish submarine HSWMS HALLAND and the Swedish submarine rescue ship HSWMS BELOS played critical roles, with the latter deploying the exercise’s loan rescue submersible, the NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS).During the Baltic deployment, the ships of SNMCMG1 are participating in a robust program of operations at sea, numerous port visits, previously including Swinoujscie, Poland, Ventspils and Riga, Latvia, Tallin, Estonia, and the Historic Ordnance Disposal operation OPEN SPIRIT, which contributed to the destruction of 95 mines and 2 torpedoes.The 42nd annual BALTOPS is a multinational naval exercise led by U.S. Naval Forces Europe/U.S. SIXTH FLEET, based in Naples, Italy. Forces including SNMCMG1 will participate in numerous at-sea activities to test their warfighting abilities in multiple skill areas.A NATO Airborne Early Warning & Control Force (AWACS) E-3A aircraft will also be taking part operating in Swedish airspace, providing air and surface surveillance to participants. Another important role will be to control US, German and Swedish fighter aircraft during Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground operations.[mappress]Press Release, June 06, 2014; Image: NATO View post tag: Navylast_img read more
