The client, a young professional, approached us to extend her small 1950’s infill terraced house in Peckham to create a more usable kitchen and dining area with a better connection to the rear garden. The existing house had particularly low ceiling heights and narrow, awkward living spaces. The client felt that the house had been built from poor quality materials which compared poorly with the Victorian neighbours. The brief was to create a bright and open living space with materials of quality and character.Save this picture!Sketchnimtim took an ambitious approach for extending and updating this small and unremarkable house. Taking inspiration from the Case Study Houses of the 1950s, as well as traditional and contemporary Japanese domestic architecture, nimtim proposed an addition formed of a series of lightweight timber portals running both front to back and side to side. The timber structure defines a series of openings along the roof and onto the rear garden. This grid extends through the house and out into the garden; blurring the threshold between inside and out. Save this picture!© Elyse KennedyThe design references the original Victorian property that was situated on the site before being destroyed in the Second World War; stepping back in plan to echo the original closet wing, while allowing the garden to extend into the living space.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!SectionInternally materiality was key; materials had to be high quality, with a distinctive, honest timbre – in direct contrast to those of the existing dwelling. The exposed timber portal frames are in Douglas Fir that creates a warm, pink hue, the floor is poured concrete and an exposed wall of specially selected long bricks runs along one edge of the living space extending out into the garden. A restrained, simple palette is maintained with the translucent white plywood kitchen with wooden and marble worktops. Every material quietly affirms itself independently and collectively.Save this picture!© Elyse Kennedynimtim architects and their sister company nimtim landscapes worked together from the beginning to create a design where the house and garden were completely integrated. A simple and bold garden plan proposed a large paved area of elegant and low cost pavers with a large planted area that mirrored the geometry of the house creating an axis that extends into the stepped plan of the house.Save this picture!© Elyse KennedyThe beds were planted with prickly Berberis and large bulbous Hebes. Yellow Yarrow and Turkish Sage flowers give colour interest and height to the bed. A young pear tree provides a focal point at the back of the garden and a trellis with climbing honeysuckle hides a small shed and provides vertical interest.Save this picture!© Elyse KennedyProject gallerySee allShow lessFaculty of Architecture of the University of Porto Through Fernando Guerra’s LensesArticlesThese Maps Show Why It’s a Bad Idea To Make Things UpArchitecture News Share Year:  Photographs Area:  50 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: nimtim architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officenimtim architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGreater LondonUnited KingdomPublished on May 05, 2017Cite: “Arbour House / nimtim architects” 05 May 2017.

In the year 2013, being a couple without children yet, “R” and “M” bought this site in “Las Brisas de Chicureo”, with the scope of building something in the future. Ten years later, now with three children in the family, they made the decision of building their house. Considering the brief of the project, a fast and efficient construction in metallic structure was chosen. The design is based on two overlapped bars, where the public and private areas are separated in different stories. In the intersection of this volumes, as the core of the house, a double height access was design including the main stair, which was made as a sculpture in a single sheet of folded steel saving installation time and costs. This project has strategic concrete walls that reduce the support points of the structure (pilars), generating a more fluid space in the first story. This concept is a response to the modern requirements of spacious and integrated common spaces.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!Second floor planSave this picture!© Nico SaiehBeeing located next to a golf course defined the orientation of the bars, adopting an open position and orientation of the rooms towards the landscape. To do this, an external corridor is established with different terraces all facing north. Taking advantage of the spatiality generated by the overlapped bars, a solid roof is generated on the terrace and barbecue area, which makes it possible to use it throughout the year. On the second level, all the private rooms are located with a living and study room as the meeting place on the center. The materials of the house try to be as noble as possible, leaving the largest amount of raw materials exposed such as the concrete floor, the stainless-steel staircase and the main structure in black steel.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehTo emphasize the openings towards the exteriors, large panels of thermopanel windows are favored. The entire interior sky is clad in heat-treated woods (TopWood) and the furniture of the kitchen was design in neutral colors to give grater importance to the living and dining room area. Finally, the entire house is lined on the outside with EIFS panels for grater thermal efficiency. Also air conditioning systems are installed through the floor, walls and furniture, always hiding as much as possible the devices to achieve cleaner spaces.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Nico SaiehAdemás, para recalcar la apertura hacia el patio se privilegian los grandes paños de ventanales termopanel. Todo el cielo se reviste en maderas termotratadas TopWood y el mobiliario en obra de la cocina fue pensado en colores neutros para dar mayor protagonismo al living y comedor. Finalmente, toda la vivienda es forrada por el exterior con panel EIFS para una mayor eficiencia térmica y se integra en su diseño el uso de sistemas de aire acondicionado por piso o muro con aparatos bajo radier o bien, situados estratégicamente dentro de sus muebles para así evitar tener aparatos de climatización a la vista.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehProject gallerySee allShow lessReform of an Industrial Building for Cultural Facilities “La Nau” / Meritxell InarajaSelected ProjectsDi Vece Arquitectos Studio / Di Vece ArquitectosSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951473/vh-house-b-e-l-e-v-e Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this office[ b e l e v ê ]OfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChicureoOn FacebookChilePublished on November 17, 2020Cite: “VH House / [ b e l e v ê ]” [Casa VH / [ b e l e v ê ]] 17 Nov 2020.

Data indicated that the average vacancy rate declined by 10 basis points to 4.6 percent in November from a revised 4.7 percent in October. Morningstar attributes the decline in vacancy to a corresponding decrease in lease expirations, following a seasonal trend of lower lease expirations and vacancies in the winter months.According to Morningstar, the average retention rate for expiring leases declined 10 basis points to 78.7 percent in October, the latest month available, from 78.8 percent in September. However, it has remained over 75 percent for the past year. Of the 20 metropolitan statistical areas (MSA), Houston MSA had the highest vacancy rate at 6.9percent, up from a revised 6.6 percent in October. This was followed by Denver-Aurora at 6.3 percent, and Indianapolis at 6 percent. The highest blended rent growth was experienced in Sacramento at 6 percent, followed by Las Vegas and Riverside-San Bernardino MSAs at 5.5 percent each, the report indicated.  Lowest rent growth was recorded at 1.7 percent in the Houston and Nashville MSAs. According to Morningstar research, rent growth for properties included in single-family rental securitizations continue to exceed the RentRange rents for three- and four-bedroom properties located in the same MSAs. Analyzing single-borrower performance, the research found a decrease in lease expirations to 5.3 percent in November, a drop from 6.5 percent in October. This decline is also expected to lead to a decline in the vacancy rate in the coming months. The overall turnover rate increased to 3 percent in October, the latest month for which data is available, from 2.7 percent in September. The average delinquency rate increased to 0.7 percent in November, with five transactions reporting delinquency rates of 1 percent or more. Rents recorded an upward spike at 3.6 percent in November, compared with a revised 3.8 percent increase in October, according to the research.Focusing on how to build, manage and grow investment opportunities, 2019 will see an array of housing and mortgage professionals come together at The Guest House of Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee between March 11-13 for the Single Family Rental Summit. The Summit will feature subject-matter experts who will answer questions and offer viable solutions related to property management, acquisition, disposition, and financing.

A division bench of Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice NR Borkar were hearing a writ petition filed by Varad Kolhe, who secured 41 marks in the administrative law paper but contended that there has been an arithmetic mistake in adding up the marks awarded to him. The Court directed the said university to re-calculate the marks obtained without re-evaluating the answers given by the petitioner. Senior Advocate AV Anturkar along with Advocate Ranjit Shinde and Advocate Ajinkya Udane appeared on behalf of the petitioner and submitted that there has been an arithmetic mistake in evaluating the marks in the said paper. As per the assessment of the petitioner, instead of 41 he should get 61 marks in the said paper. Whereas, appearing on behalf of the respondent University and Director, Board of Exams, Advocate Rajendra Anbhute sought to take instructions from the moderator and then file an affidavit. When the Court asked about the actual marks obtained by the petitioner, Adv Anbhute submitted that on a re-calculation of marks, petitioner is at best entitled to 43 marks and not 61 marks as claimed by him. Finally, the bench observed- “Considering the rival submissions, we direct Respondent Nos.1 and 2 to re-calculate the marks awarded to the Petitioner in the ‘Administrative Law’ Paper without in any manner reevaluating the answers given by the Petitioner.

Letters

first_imgLettersOn 30 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. This week’s letters.Succinct insight to overseasrecruits The news story ‘Lack of topexecs forces firms to search overseas’ (News, 2 April) provided a succinctinsight into the trend towards overseas recruitment.Recent research among HR professionals, commissioned by Propeller inconjunction with the CIPD, supports the results of TMP Worldwide’s study, whichwas covered in the news story.Our survey shows that, in the wake of 11 September, confidence within theglobal business community is returning. The HR professionals surveyed confirmedthe need to recruit from overseas, because of the continued demand for topexecutives and a shortfall in suitable candidates in the UK.Our research also reveals that some international assignments are beingreplaced with shorter, more frequent business trips, e-mails and videoconferencing.However, the general consensus was that the need for companies to move staffacross borders will increase, but with a greater emphasis on safety forexpatriate staff. David Kneeshaw, chief executive , Propeller Harassment is a criminaloffenceI’m sure I am not the onlyperson to spot a contradiction in 23 April issue of Personnel Today. On the back page and in Paul Nelson’s article on page 9 (Analysis, 23 April),the CIPD’s Diane Sinclair is quoted as saying: “Harassment is not a criminaloffence, so if an employer receives an harassment complaint they are unable tocovertly monitor for it.”If you then take the time to read page 13 of the same issue (Legal, 23 April),it references the criminal offence of harassment as covered by the Protectionfrom Harassment Act 1997. This actually makes it a criminal offence.Ian Green, training controllerSurprise atAsda bingo recruitsI was really surprised to read‘Asda scours bingo halls for staff’ (News, 23 April).The news story claims that by seeking older employees Asda can reduce employeeturnover. But in Asda’s successful bid to become the best company to work for in TheSunday Times, it quotes its annual employee turn-over as 2 per cent – anincrease on last year from 1 per cent. Why waste time on employee recruitment when your company has the best employeeretention possible in the world of retail outlets? Could it be that its bestcompanies to work for submission was flawed?Bear in mind that a 2 per cent turnover equates to 2,400 leavers per year fromits 120,000-employee population – a remarkable figure. Tony Howell, CIPD elective student, Swindon CollegeE-mail policiesmust be reviewedThe Information Commissioner’scode of practice banning the blanket monitoring of e-mails should be seen as anindication for companies to review their e-mail policies.Everyone should be concerned about e-mail communication where security iscompromised, where a PR disaster is in the making or where costs are runningout of control.It is easy enough for companies to include e-mail audits as part of regularsecurity health checks. They are not a tool for spying on employees, but a wayto implement an effective e-mail policy, or if a policy already exists, tocheck that it works.Jocelyn Honeybunn, business development director, Failsafelast_img read more

These properties face credit risk under Local Law 97: Moody’s

first_img Full Name* Message* Tags 32 Avenue of the Americas, Two MetroTech and 60 Hudson Street (Rudin Management, Brookfield Properties, 60 Hudson, City of New York)In 2024, the owner of the former AT&T Long Distance Building at 32 Sixth Avenue could face $2.8 million in fines. The owner of the former Western Union Building at 60 Hudson Street could be on the hook for nearly $4.6 million in fines that same year.The two properties have origins in telegraph services and now house major telecommunications and data service companies. They also back large loans that could become a bit riskier due to New York City’s new building emission caps.A report by Moody’s found that 80 percent of commercial properties underlying commercial mortgage-backed securities in New York City would face fines under Local Law 97 that would “impair property cash flows” without retrofits or other forms of remediation.Under the 2019 measure, buildings larger than 25,000 square feet must meet new greenhouse gas emission caps starting in 2024 and even stricter limits by 2030. According to the credit rating business, the law’s first deadline will “spur little material credit risk” that would rise “moderately” through 2030.John Gilbert, COO at Rudin Management, which owns 32 Avenue of the Americas, said 93 percent of energy use in the building can be attributed to tenants, the majority of which are telecommunications companies.“I control elevators and lobby lighting and that is basically it,” he said. “I can’t tell a major telecommunications company that they can shut down their servers for several hours.”He said Local Law 97 unfairly penalizes property owners over something they can’t control.The report lists Rudin’s building and 60 Hudson, owned by the Stahl Organization, among the top six greenhouse gas contributors that back $1 billion in outstanding loans. Those properties’ loans are valued at $450 million and $280 million, respectively. The other properties are Related Companies and Vornado Realty Trust’s 85 10th Avenue, Leser Group’s 111 Livingston Street, Brookfield’s Two MetroTech Center and RFR Holding’s 380 Lafayette Street.The six loans pose “potential heightened risk to CMBS deals,” according to the report, and would account for 36 percent of total fines in 2024 attributed to CMBS properties in the city. According to the report, these properties could face fines representing between 4.6 and 13 percent of their 2019 net operating income if they do not take action to comply with LL97.The broader landscape of city properties is a bit less grim. Of the 767 city properties backed by CMBS loans with available carbon emissions data, only 64 would face potential fines greater than 2 percent of their 2019 net operating income. That number jumps to 335 in 2030.Gilbert said properties with critical infrastructure should not be treated the same as office buildings under the law.“The modern economy runs on broadband, and these buildings should be exempt from these regulations based on their use and critical infrastructure,” he said.A spokesperson for Brookfield said Two MetroTech Center would be “unreasonably penalized starting in 2030 for housing two significant and important data centers.”“We are completing a number of capital projects to limit the building’s energy usage to the extent possible, and we are working with tenants to explore other ways to do the same,” the spokesperson said in a statement.Owners of buildings with data centers, 24-hour operations, facilities critical to human health and with high-density occupancy can apply for adjustments to their emission caps. To do so, the owners must show that meeting 2024 limits is impossible because emissions in 2018 exceeded the caps set for 2024 by more than 40 percent. If approved, the building’s limits will temporarily be adjusted to 70 percent of its 2018 level. Owners have until July to apply for this adjustment.Property owners had fought for the inclusion of another workaround to the law in the state budget. The measure, which would have allowed owners to buy renewable energy credits generated outside the city to offset their emissions, was ultimately left out.Contact Kathryn Brenzel Email Address*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink green buildingsLocal Law 97NYC Office MarketPoliticslast_img read more

Please someone help me get this out the @NFL puts paperwork in [our] faces and thats it,” he added in a subsequent tweet.McClain, who spent the bulk of his 7-year career playing for the Baltimore Ravens, suggested that the NFL had ignored his cries for help and claimed it would be more willing to “aid” him if he played quarterback, a higher position than fullback.He recorded a career 1,310 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns before retiring in 2014.“Watch how fast they come to aid if I was som3 QB or anything but no I was f—— fullback that did it all,” he tweeted. “@NFL I need help and I need the process to speed the f— up im about to crash out and its paperwork I dont wanna hear it.”Several of the baller’s 32,000 followers reached out to ask if he was OK and if he needed resources for suicide prevention. He admitted that he wasn’t doing well, but he said he would keep on fighting.“Swear Queen Imma be solid. Had a moment but Imma fight this thing head on. Love the game but do the game love us back??? In due time I will see Queen. Always Love,” he told one concerned follower. “God be with me. I got this I got this,” he added in another tweet.The tweetstorm came just hours before 29-year-old Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck shocked the sports world with the announcement of his early retirement on Saturday due to concerns about the game’s impact on his health.Luck retired with two years remaining on his current contract, saying he was tired of a never ending “cycle of injury, pain [and] rehab.”“I felt stuck in it, and the only way I see out is to no longer play football. It’s taken my joy of this game away,” Luck told reporters Saturday. “I’ve been stuck in this process, I haven’t been able to live the life I want to live, it’s taken the joy out of this game.”A spokesperson for the NFL did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
