The Little House is nestled into a lush second growth forest on a north facing bluff overlooking Hood Canal with distant views to Dabob Bay. Designed to repurpose an existing foundation, the new building is just over 20m2.  The simple form is abstracted against the forest – a stark exterior contrasting a warm bright interior.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueRecommended ProductsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82The owners live full time in Houston, Texas but have shared many summers with family at a nearby property outside Seabeck. They loved the wildness of the southern Canal and imagined a small retreat here of their own. Early design discussions focused on creating a compact, modern structure that was both simple and inexpensive to build. Intentionally restrained on an existing footprint, the concept grew from this premise – a simple box with large carved openings in both the roof and walls that selectively embrace the views and natural light.Save this picture!Floor PlanVisitors approach the site from the south. A thin canopy marks the entry and frames views of the Canal below. The more transparent north and west elevations pull the landscape and distant view into the space.  With primary views toward the water, the south and east elevations remain mostly solid, shielding views from the driveway and neighboring properties. Skylights carve into the roof, bringing light and views of the stars over the bed and into the shower.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueTaut oxidized black cedar and blackened cement infill panels clad the exterior while lightly painted MDF panels and soft pine plywood warm and brighten the interior. On a sunny western corner of the house a large patio reaches out into the landscape and connects the building to the larger site while serving as a jumping off point to the trail system wandering down to the water’s edge.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueThe small footprint ultimately served as an effective tool to govern the design process. Focus was placed on the essentials and extras were edited out by both desire and a very humble budget. The resulting project hopes to capture the essence of the modern cabin – small in size but much larger than its boundaries.Save this picture!© Andrew PogueProject gallerySee allShow lessCritical Round-Up: The 2018 Venice BiennaleArticles”Biodomes” in the UAE’s Al Hajar Mountains Will Promote EcotourismArchitecture News Share Lot Size:1.7 acres on Hood CanalCity:SeabeckCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess Specs Little House / mw|works architecture+design 2015 Johnson Southerland Contractor: Interior Design: PCS Structural Solutions Area:  1140 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Structural Engineer: Photographs Avery Cox Design, Avery Cox ArchDaily Manufacturers: Chown Hardware, Corian® Design, DuPont, Milgard, Quantum Windows & Doors, Viroc, Arauco, Ipe, Lueders Limestone “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/896184/little-house-mw-works-architecture-plus-design Clipboard Houses Landscape Architects: Photographs:  Andrew Pogue Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officemwworksOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeabeckUnited StatesPublished on June 15, 2018Cite: “Little House / mw|works architecture+design” 15 Jun 2018.

The Society’s generosity and commitment to our area through the fund we hold has seen support go to a huge range of projects. It is no surprise, then, to see the Society leading the way on dormant account funds and we are honoured to be the recipient of this first-of-its kind donation.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 The first release of dormant account money directly from a building society to a UK charity has taken place. Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland has received £1million from Newcastle Building Society under the ‘alternative’ dormant accounts scheme.The transfer builds on a long-term relationship between the two organisations and takes the value of Newcastle Building Society’s charitable endowment fund at the Community Foundation to over £2 million.The Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act 2008 allows institutions to take part in a scheme overseen by the Reclaim Fund to channel funds from dormant accounts to good causes. The main scheme involves the National Lottery Community Fund managing funds with each devolved administration deciding on their use through a national pot. However, building societies and others with balance sheet values below £7 billion can use an alternative scheme where qualifying dormant accounts can support a favoured local and aligned charity. Newcastle Building Society is the first to take advantage of the alternative scheme.Andrew Haigh, Chief Executive of Newcastle Building Society, said: “We have a strong relationship with the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, a charity with whom we have a built a significant community fund through Society donations and colleague fundraising. The arrangements for managing dormant assets through the Reclaim Fund have enabled us to make a substantial addition to the Fund, which will further strengthen our ability to make a positive difference for the communities we serve. Through the scheme, we have now doubled the size of the endowment in the Newcastle Building Society Community Fund at the Community Foundation to over £2m.”In the last financial year, Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland awarded 1,515 grants totalling £7.8 million. Most grants are funded through its endowment, which stands at £85 million. It also awards grants through programme and partnership funds. The Newcastle Building Society Community Fund at the Community Foundation was established in 1990 and supports community organisations in North East England and beyond where the firm has branches.Rob Williamson, Chief Executive of the Community Foundation, said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

RSF helps coordinate support for French journalist kidnapped in Mali

The group includes friends and colleagues of Dubois, the main French media outlets for which he works, other major media outlets, and journalists who have themselves been held hostage in the past.

May 5, 2021 Find out more News The creation of this group of 11 individuals and entities at RSF’s initiative comes 12 days after the release of a video confirming Olivier Dubois’s abduction. The group includes representatives of Libération, Le Point and Jeune Afrique, the three media for which Dubois most often works, representatives of a support committee formed by colleagues in Bamako, Mali’s capital, Florence Aubenas and Didier François (journalists who were hostages in Iraq and Syria, respectively), SOS Otages (a Paris-based NGO that defends the interests of hostages and their families), and a coalition of French-language media groups. “The main tasks that this group has set itself is to coordinate civil society strategy and initiatives in support of this French journalist’s release, and to carry out awareness-raising, communication and advocacy actions for as long as necessary to achieve this goal,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. Based in Bamako for the past several years, Dubois never returned after setting off on 8 April for a meeting in Gao with Abdallah Ag Albakaye, a senior member of the Support Group for Islam and Muslims (JNIM), a coalition of Islamist groups affiliated to Al Qaeda. A 21-second video released a month later, on 5 May, shows Dubois confirming that JNIM is holding him hostage. Seven and a half years after Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon, two French journalists working for Radio France Internationale, were murdered in Mali, the Sahel continues to be one of the world’s most dangerous regions for media personnel.

Genus plc Reports Interim First Half 2021 Fiscal Year Results

first_img 54.7 Six months ended 31 December 2019 Change 36.6 Operating profit inc. JVs exc. gene editing 153 Profit before tax Corporate Highlights: £m 44 Pinterest 285.7 10.3 Operating profit exc. JVs BASINGSTOKE, England & MADISON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 25, 2021– Genus plc (LSE: GNS), a global biotechnology leader in animal genetics, today reported interim results for the six-months period ending December 31, 2020, as well as provided a business update on recent corporate developments in its worldwide porcine and bovine genetics businesses. The full report has been made available on the Investors section of the Genus plc website. The Company will discuss its corporate, operational and financial highlights on a pre-recorded webcast, scheduled today, Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 7:01 AM GMT, 2:01 AM EST. A recording of the webcast will be available here and on the Company’s website. “Genus performed very strongly and made further good strategic progress in the first half of the 2021 fiscal year,” remarked Stephen Wilson, Chief Executive of Genus plc. “The Group continued to show its resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic and I would like to thank our people who have shown great dedication to our customers whilst navigating the various challenges that the pandemic has caused.” “Both PIC and ABS grew adjusted operating profits in double digits, with China, Brazil, India and Russia, being notably high growth markets. PIC’s expansion in China was significant, gaining share with large producers that have been re-stocking following the spread of African Swine Fever in 2019. PIC Europe’s growth was also very strong, reflecting success with key accounts and leveraging our genetics and supply chain. “ABS’s volume growth in the half was a record, driven by the continued success of Sexcel®, and strong performance by our proprietary NuEra® beef business. Latin America, Europe and Asia all grew strongly, and ABS’s adjusted operating margin improved through better product mix and operating leverage. Mr. Wilson concluded, “In the second half of the 2021 fiscal year we expect that growth will be lower and there are increased currency headwinds. Nevertheless, Genus continues to have significant growth opportunities and the Board’s expectations remain unchanged for the full year.” Outlook Genus performed very strongly in the first half of the year, and we expect that the Group will remain resilient as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact society and the world economy and presents challenges for elements of the animal protein value chain. Although growth in the second half is anticipated to be lower than experienced in the first half and there are increased currency headwinds, the Board expects the company to perform in line with its expectations for the financial year 2021. Results presentation today A pre-recorded webcast briefing to discuss the interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2020 will be held via a video webcast facility and will be accessible via the following link from 7:01am GMT today: https://webcasting.buchanan.uk.com/broadcast/600ed56bea090471deaf6780 An archived recording of the webcast will also be available on the Investors section of the Company’s website. 26 Pinterest 43.5 Actual currency Local NewsBusiness 1 Adjusted results are the Alternative Performance Measures (‘APMs’) used by the Board to monitor underlying performance at a Group and operating segment level, which are applied consistently throughout.

Revenue of £285.7m (2019: £270.7m) increased 6% in actual and 11% in constant currency during the period. PIC (8% growth) and ABS (17% growth) both contributed, with particularly strong trading across Brazil, Russia, India and China. Strategically important porcine royalty revenue was up 7% in constant currency and ABS’s volume growth was a record high of 19% achieved through sexed genetics up 42%, and beef up 22%. Adjusted profit before tax was up 32% (44% in constant currency), the highest growth rate in over 10 years. This reflected double digit growth in adjusted operating profit in both PIC and ABS. The ongoing impact of African Swine Fever (‘ASF’) in China led to very high pork prices continuing through the period, driving strong breeding stock sales, royalty income and farm margins for PIC. As a result of Genus’s strong earnings growth and cash flow generation, the Board has declared an interim dividend of 10.3 pence per share, an increase of 10% on last year’s interim dividend, which is payable on 1 April 2021 to shareholders on the register at 5 March 2021.

Removing Waste from the Process is Key to Keeping Costs Down in SFR Rehab

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago With the costs of labor and materials increasing, investors and contractors are constantly searching for ways to lower the cost of doing business when it comes to renovating or rehabbing their rental properties.The key to keeping costs down is to remove waste from the process, according to one expert on Tuesday at the Rehab Lab in the inaugural Five Star Institute Single-Family Rental Summit in Las Vegas.”The price of labor includes the processes, so if you can streamline your processes and take waste out of the processes, and cut your overhead costs or pass that on to a client,” said Steven Helser, CEO of ASONS, a panelist during the lab. “The other way to look at this is the materials. By only buying the level of materials you need at the right quality, you get massive discounts for national material suppliers like Home Depot and Lowe’s. Leveraging off of that, you can save that and pass that onto the client.”One way to keep costs down is to convert fixed costs into variable costs, Helser said.”If the client has a rehab team that goes out to do their renovations or their flips, they can get rid of that rehab team, and we as contractors can come in and take that fixed cost and make that a variable,” Helser said. “So if they’re not buying, they don’t have that labor cost. So it’s on our dime. And if we’re not performing for them, we’re out performing for somebody else. So we’re able to take and use that labor efficiently across multiple clients where one client would say ‘I have 10 or 15 people over here to do rehab or maintenance, and now I don’t have that anymore. I just pick up the phone and we know I’m going to have the right level of labor and performance and my costs are going to be lower.'””We take waste out of the system and we minimize the time from the time we get a purchase order to the time we invoice the client. So we’re moving that waste and making processes more efficient both inside and outside with our own performers or contractors.”In order to remove the waste from the processes, Helser said his company uses the Six Sigma approach, which was famously utilized by Jack Welch during his tenure as CEO of General Electric.While not many real estate investors or contractors are current utilizing this approach, more and more are coming on, Helser said.”We take waste out of the system and we minimize the time from the time we get a purchase order to the time we invoice the client,” he said. “So we’re moving that waste and making processes more efficient both inside and outside with our own performers or contractors. It allows us to have a complete hold on those overhead costs so we can take them down to a bare minimum. You match your labor with what business you have and it seems to work out. Same thing with materials.”While keeping costs of labor and materials down is an ongoing challenge for contractors in the single-family property rehab space, the availability of labor has also been an issue.”If you’re not self-performing with the way construction is going nowadays, all of the labor is going to the next job, like the big commercial jobs,” Helser said. “Having that labor available and keeping that labor engaged in this environment is very tough.”Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News, DSNews.com, The MReport, and TheMReport.com.  in Daily Dose, Featured, News Related Articles October 13, 2015 3,743 Views  Print This Post Tagged with: Asset Management Five Star Institute Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit Property Preservation Property Rehab About Author: Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: RESPA Claims Cited by Foreclosure Defendants Fall Flat in Florida Next: JPMorgan Q3 Earnings Increase 22 Percent Year-Over-Year Share Savecenter_img Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Asset Management Five Star Institute Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit Property Preservation Property Rehab 2015-10-13 Brian Honea Home / Daily Dose / Removing Waste from the Process is Key to Keeping Costs Down in SFR Rehab Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

He said there was ample scope for savings as the public procurement market was worth about €16bn a year.The estimated value of the stationery contract is €10m a year — roughly 25pc cheaper than the previous contract.It is not clear why  Donegal VEC or LYIT have not availed of the savings but public bodies may not have acted because existing contracts have not run out.Others are refusing to end long-standing deals with local suppliers, it is understood  Donegal County Council is seeking to strike a balance between making savings buy sourcing products nationally and supporting local rate paying suppliers.

Fire Marshal issues holiday fire safety reminders

first_img “Since propane-fired turkey fryers must be used outdoors, weather can become a factor,” Holmes said.“Rain could splatter the hot cooking oil or turn quickly to steam leading to more burns or destruction.”Holmes said that turkeys must be completely thawed before being placed in the fryer, as a partially thawed turkey will also splatter the oil resulting in burns or property damage.“The fryers use a lot of oil; about five gallons, so extreme caution must be taken when placing and removing the turkey from the fryer to be sure it isn’t dropped into the fryer causing more spillage and splatter resulting in burns and fires,” Holmes said.

The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.”Holmes said that the SFMO also cautions those who man the kitchen to keep the floor clear to reduce the danger of tripping and always keep knives out of the reach of children.“Be sure electric cords from counter top cooking accessories are not dangling within easy reach of children,” he said. “Always keep matches and utility lighter out of the reach of children and never leave children along in a room with a lit candle.” By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Fire Marshal issues holiday fire safety reminders Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Contentlast_img read more
