PivotThe placeLas Gaviotas is a small seaside resort on the coast of Buenos Aires located between the forests of Mar Azul and Mar de las Pampas. A virgin territory of fixed dunes with planted acacias and poplars to which is overlapped an orthogonal trace that defines lots suitable for construction of multifamily developments.In this case it is an atypical parcel, of just 15 m at the front, with a dense and young poplar plantation, located 300 meters from the beach.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraThe commissionIt’s a set of studio apartments for vacation, with a small administration and a house for the owners, in charge of the units’ exploitation. With a change of ownership involved, this property became a new two-room unit. The square footage to be built would be the maximum allowed under code.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Floor PlanThe proposalThe project should fulfill the premise that the resulting volumetric accentuates the set idea by proposing common spaces and making imperceptible the individualization of each unit, without thereby resenting intimacy and privacy. So that each house should have two access and with its own expansions, and controlled views to and from common spaces as well.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraIt was proposed a three-dimensional grid developed on two floors alternating covered, partially covered and open spaces of different scale and use, keeping all the trees from being affected by the proposed construction. In this way the views from the units would be a cutout from the original green landscape of the lot and its vegetation would also serve to achieve privacy between the houses of the assembly and in relation to their neighbors.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraThe functional organizationPassing through the courtyard entrance you access the set by a semi covered directly related to the administration. The ground floor units are reached through a free path through the common areas and you access them by their private expansions. From the two main courtyards and through their own stairs you enter the upper floor units that have private terraces as expansions, which are created as a result of occupying the space reticule.Each unit consists of a single room with two distinct areas: the sleeping room with a bathroom and a storing sector, and dining and sitting room with an area for cooking.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraThe constructionThe work was done in exposed concrete, a material that unifies in a single element structure and finishing. H21 concrete was used with the addition of a fluidifiant so that this mixture, with little amount of water to harden, results very compact and doesn’t require sealing. In the bathroom and kitchen areas was chosen to solve them with dry construction: galvanized pipes structure and pine boards on the exterior walls, and plasterboard on the interior. The floor cloths are also from concrete screed divided with aluminum plates. The openings are of dark bronze anodized aluminum. Electric floor heating is used as heating system combined with salamanders.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraThe furnitureExcept the beds, couches and chairs, the rest of the equipment of this house is solved in concrete.Save this picture!© Inés TanoiraProject gallerySee allShow lessDuravit Designer Dream Bath CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansPollard Thomas Edwards Architects’ Sawtooth Design Wins Finsbury Leisure Centre Comp…Architecture News Share Las Gaviotas Set / BAK arquitectos Houses CopyAbout this officeBAK arquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPlaya DoradaArgentinaPublished on August 16, 2016Cite: “Las Gaviotas Set / BAK arquitectos” [Conjunto Las Gaviotas / BAK arquitectos] 16 Aug 2016.

House, Senate Urge EPA to Adjust Ethanol Mandate

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 7, 2012 House, Senate Urge EPA to Adjust Ethanol Mandate Home Energy House, Senate Urge EPA to Adjust Ethanol Mandate SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) stands with 156 U.S. Representatives and 25 U.S. Senators in their quest to bring commonsense to Washington, D.C., and relief to rural America by encouraging Environmental Protection Agency Administrator (EPA) Lisa Jackson to implement a waiver to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Last week, more than 150 representatives signed a letter to Administrator Jackson and today more than 20 senatorsdid the same. The letters went to Administrator Jackson because EPA was granted the authority in the 2005 Energy Policy Act, which set the initial RFS, and in the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, which expanded the fuels standard, to waive the RFS because of severe economic or environmental harm.In the House, the letter was a bipartisan effort led by Congressmen Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.); Jim Matheson (D-Utah); Steve Womack (R-Ark.); and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.).“The RFS mandate has created a domino effect. Tightening supplies have already driven up the price of corn, and the extreme weather being experienced by much of the nation will only further increase prices.  I am pleased that my colleagues in the Senate have joined me and 155 other Members of the House of Representatives in urging EPA Administrator Jackson to act now to make a critical reduction in the RFS for 2012,” said Rep. Goodlatte. “We should not be in a position where we are choosing between fuel and feed for our livestock.”NCBA President J.D. Alexander said his organization supports American ethanol. Alexander, who is a cattleman from Nebraska, said corn-based ethanol has done a lot to stabilize many rural communities in his state and yields a co-product, dried distillers’ grains, which many cattlemen use as a feed ingredient. Alexander, like many of the members of Congress urging EPA to issue the waiver, is seeking a level playing field for cattlemen to compete “head-to-head” for a bushel of corn in one of the worst droughts in the nation’s history. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, roughly 70 percent of cattle producing regions are suffering from drought conditions.“We find it concerning that these mandates are allowed to continue today in the worst drought I have seen in my lifetime. Seventy percent of cattle country is under drought conditions – this is not isolated to a certain part of the country. One has to wonder how bad the drought has to get before EPA uses its authority to grant a RFS waiver,” said Alexander. “This isn’t rocket science. Let the market work.”The Senate letter was also a bipartisan effort led by Senators Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.).“In light of the widespread droughts that are causing severe economic harm to our nation’s farmers and ranchers, I am proud that a bipartisan group of senators signed on to the Hagan/Chambliss letter that asks EPA to use its authority to waive the corn-ethanol mandate of the Renewable Fuels Standard,” said Sen. Hagan. “A waiver from the corn-ethanol mandate will provide much needed relief for livestock and poultry producers suffering from record high corn prices brought on by the worst drought in 50 years.”The RFS requires 13.2 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol to be produced in 2012 and 13.8 billion gallons in 2013, amounts that will use about 4.7 billion and 4.9 billion bushels, respectively, of the nation’s corn. Some agricultural forecasters now are estimating that just 11.8 billion bushels of corn will be harvested this year – about 13 billion were harvested in 2011 – meaning corn-ethanol production will use about four of every 10 bushels.Source: NCBA Facebook Twitter Previous articlePence Campaign Rolls Out Ag PlatformNext articleCheers and Tears at State Fair Grand Drive Gary Truittlast_img read more

Government puts training schemes under one body

first_img The Government is pulling together the strands of its lifelong learning strategy after training experts criticised it for producing an incoherent muddle of bodies and schemes.The remit of Nick Stuart, director-general of Life Long Learning, has been extended to cover all post-16 education so he can oversee all developments and ensure they fit together.Personnel Today revealed in April that the vast number of Government learning and training initiatives is causing widespread confusion among employers who are expected to support the schemes and use them to train their staff.The schemes include the New Deal, Modern Apprenticeships, Learning Partnerships, Investors in People, the University for Industry, learning centres, learning accounts and the new Learning and Skills Councils.But different people with little contact with each other were in charge of each and the DfEE did not have a definitive list of the schemes.“Virtually every single thing is now my responsibility,” said Stuart. “We needed to pull together all the strands.”He has set up a cross-directorate review of all policies on access to adult learning including the university for industry, adult key skills and the trade union learning fund to see how they can link together.A national skills agenda linking higher and further education with training and basic skills is being announced by David Blunkett this week.“A whole range of things that were sat in boxes in different parts of the department are all coming together,” said Stuart. Roger Opie, director of education at the Industrial Society, who criticised the previous set-up, said, “We feel some listening is going on and we are seeing signs of what we hope is joined up government. But the proof of the pudding will be in the learning and whether the barriers of access and funding are overcome,” he said.

War of the fees! HouseSimple criticises Yopa and Purplebricks for their upfront charges

HouseSimple criticises Yopa and Purplebricks for their upfront chargesNew video asks pub customers to pay upfront for food, with predictable results as agency tells vendors “we won’t ask you to pay upfront like other online agents”.Nigel Lewis17th August 20181 Comment3,627 Views Online estate agency HouseSimple has taken a sideways swipe at rivals Purplebricks and Yopa over their up-front fee structures.The agency’s soon-to-be released latest TV ad features a gastro pub at which a cheeky but persistent waiter asks punters to pay upfront for their drinks and food before they are served.One group of friends are asked to pay £250 upfront for their meal, while one couple are asked to pay £50 for their bottle of prosecco before its brought over.Unsurprisingly, the apparently real-life customers at the pub are baffled and even let rip with expletives when faced with a compulsory up-front payment for their nosh and splosh.Experiment“We wanted to make a point with this experiment; that in certain situations people don’t react well to paying upfront for a service they haven’t yet received and in some cases, never will,” says Sam Mitchell, CEO at HouseSimple (right).“If we don’t expect to pay upfront in these situations, why should this differ when buying or selling your home? The film captured and reinforced our decision to be the first online estate agent to have a No Sale No Fee only proposition.”HouseSimple charges vendors a £995 flat fee that is paid on completion with optional viewings costing £35 each, while Purplebricks charges £849 upfront but then charges £300 for optional accompanied viewings.Emoov charges £895 on completion and £360 for unlimited viewings while Yopa offers an upfront £839 package with unlimited viewings costing £300 plus two more expensive ‘no sale, no fee’ options.Watch the video Purplebricks sam mitchell Emoov YOPA August 17, 2018Nigel LewisOne commentNick Neill, EweMove EweMove 22nd August 2018 at 10:55 amEweMove has operated a no-sale, no-fee proposition since 2013.
