The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Big Hearted Tradie Organises Valuable ‘Thank You’ for Bravehearts

When Brisbane electrician Rob Vernon heard Bravehearts’ call for help in renovating its new Strathpine office, he told his team to save the date, December 15 for a special opportunity for service this holiday season.

“I heard Bravehearts was expanding and in urgent need of tradies,” said Mr Vernon.“I’ve heard a lot about the work they do. I also know that, sadly, the demand for their crisis services is quite high too.”

The owner of Brisbane-based Vernons Electrical was personally touched by the work of the national child protection advocacy group this year, when the organisation provided much-needed support to a member of his family in crisis.

“I know their support made a difference to my family, so when I heard about their call for tradies, I knew it was a great opportunity to give back to Bravehearts for their tireless work with child abuse victims and their families,” Mr Vernon said.

All of Mr Vernon’s staff will join him on December 15 for a day-long tradie blitz on the new Bravehearts base, a Moreton Bay Regional Council-owned building in Strathpine.

Between his team of electricians and the generous support of his suppliers, Mr Vernon secured donations that will see the Bravehearts’ office fitted out with more than $15,000 worth of services and supplies.

“We are installing a brand new split system air conditioner, solar power, new lights, power points, security cameras, and security lights,” said Mr Vernon.

Spokesperson and founder of Bravehearts, Hetty Johnston, said the donations will be well received. “We have quite a bit of work to do before we can open the doors of our new office,” said Ms Johnston. “Bravehearts would like to express sincere thanks and appreciation to Vernons Electrical and their generous suppliers such as Solar Spec, Haymans Electrical, Airconditioning Direct, and Beacon Lighting. Christmas comes early sometimes and the timing could not be better as we continue to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.”

Bravehearts Inc. is a registered Charity registered with the ATO as a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient). They employ more than 50 staff across 9 offices. Bravehearts’ members comprise survivors, parents, friends, partners, professionals and non-abusive members of the community who share in the belief that child sexual assault must stop. The Strathpine office will be Bravehearts’ home base for rolling-out education programs to kids across Brisbane’s north.

To donate supplies or your tradie expertise, contact Kayleen Johnston +61 5552 3009. To interview Rob Vernon or learn more abut Vernons Electrical, please visithttp://www.vernonselectrical.com.au or call +61 0430 878 769

Messer Construction Co. To Host Graduation Ceremony For Green Build Boot Camp Participants

The National Sustainability Coalition is on a mission to take small and diverse companies to a higher level of operational efficiencies in the emerging green economy. In November, the organization launched the Green Construction Education Program. Partners in the initiative are the City of Cincinnati Small Business Enterprise Program, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky African American Chamber, Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Council, Ohio Small Business Development Center at the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati and Messer Construction Co.

At the core of the NSC’s initiative is a unique Green Build Boot Camp blended learning initiative designed to give businesses in construction and construction-related trades a basic understanding of sustainability concepts, the emerging green economy and the green built environment. The program has three levels of training that move a participating business along a Sustainability Continuum™ of continuous improvement. The intent is to increase sustainability-based thinking, perspectives and behaviors that are integrated into everyday operating procedures and the culture of the company, with an outcome of a complete transformation to sustainable operations.

“Through the Green Build Boot Camp workshops, we are ensuring that our inclusion program represents businesses of all kinds and sizes. It’s a way to support the development and utilization of small businesses, and especially businesses owned by minorities, women and veterans,” says Tom Keckeis, Messer’s President and CEO.

Messer sponsored the Green Construction Education Program by hosting the first level of basic training at its headquarters on Fishwick Drive in Cincinnati. The NSC positioned the Green Build Boot Camp© as the first step for small and diverse businesses to become marketable in the green construction economy. Over 80 individuals participated in the Level 1 Knowledge component, which is an engaging, interactive workshop that combines 4 hours of classroom instruction with 2 hours of web-based training. The workshop included a “show and tell” virtual tour of Messer’s green headquarters, which was recently awarded LEED Silver EB Certification for an existing building. Participants learned first-hand how transitioning their existing company to sustainable operations can build value and competitive advantage into the enterprise. Messer intends to extend the program through September.

Dem-Con Expands Mobile Shingle Grinding Service

Dem-Con Companies, an innovator in construction and demolition recycling and one of the top shingle recycling companies, expands its mobile shingle grinding service to recycle roofing material and construction waste into a saleable product that would otherwise end up in landfills. Dem-Con’s mobile recycling service is ideal for landfills and hot-mix asphalt production facilities that segregate and prepare, but lack the resources to recycle tear off shingles.

Dem-Con Expands Mobile Shingle Grinding Service

“Dem-Con’s mobile shingle recycling service enables customers to produce and sell a valuable material used in hot mix asphalt, from materials that would have gone to landfills,” said Chris Guillemette, vice president, business development, Dem-Con Companies. “The service has been very well embraced and we are steadily expanding, working consistently across the U.S.”

As a full or custom on-site service, Dem-Con’s mobile shingle grinding utilizes customers’ own equipment to save cost. For facilities not equipped with the machinery, Dem-Con supplies all of the equipment, providing technical and operational assistance — from delivery of shingles from the jobsite to hot mix design. The service includes a mobile staff that can travel anywhere in the U.S. The company has invested in multiple machines that enable its staff to fit into the customer’s schedule. The service is available anywhere in the U.S.

Dem-Con Shingle Processing is a company developed to recover shingles resulting from the manufacturing process as well as tear-off shingles from homes. Tens of thousands of tons are currently buried in landfills each year and Dem-Con shingle recycling is working to recover and provide alternative uses for this material to reduce reliance on virgin asphalt. Dem-Con works with many government and other organizations to develop equipment, specifications and end-use options for this material. The company, which will recycle more than 25,000 tons of shingles in 2010, offers local and mobile shingle grinding services.

Acoustical Solutions, Inc. Works with DIY Network’s Man Caves

In the past two years, Acoustical Solutions, Inc. has teamed up with Jason Cameron and Tony ‘The Goose’ Siragusa of the hit DIY Network television show Man Caves to transform ordinary spaces into a masculine refuges – in the most recent project, Acoustical Solutions, Inc. worked to transform a storage basement into a recording studio for Charm City Cakes’ Chef Duff Goldman.

During the two-day renovation, Acoustical Solutions, Inc. installed Sonex® acoustical foam into the 14’ by 25’ storage basement with the help of hosts Jason Cameron and Tony Siragusa.

Goldman had been using the storage basement as a rehearsal space for his band, “Soihadto,” but said, “We have big amps, and we’re a loud band. When we’re playing, my staff has to pretty much leave.” Show producers called on Acoustical Solutions, Inc. to design a solution that would allow the Food Network host’s band to practice without disrupting the staff in the bakery, which is located directly above the rehearsal area.

Going into the two-day project, Acoustical Solutions, Inc. Sales Manager, David Ingersoll said, “we really have our work cut out for us. There are a lot of different contractors all working in the basement at the same time and the two day deadline will be approaching before any of us know it.” Ingersoll continued to say,“that there was plenty of recording and application equipment in the space.” When the project was completed, Ingersoll mentioned that “…with the equipment paired with Sonex® acoustical foam and a few big screen TVs, the space had become so nice [he] didn’t want to leave.”

The featured episode is scheduled to air on the DIY Network on October 19th, at 8:30pm ET and will run nightly until October 23.

For more information Sonex® acoustical foam, please contact Acoustical Solutions, Inc. by calling 1-800-782-5742 or by visiting www.AcousticalSolutions.com.

Save Energy and Save Lives by Reducing Your Water Temperature

GW supplies are a Dartford based plumber’s merchant providing quality plumbing materials to the trade and public. They are concerned that many UK households are not aware of the anti scald products on the market and the damage hot water from the tap can do to your skin.

Every year 20 people die and 600 are badly injured from scalds caused by hot water. The Elderly and very young are most at risk from scalding. To prevent the growth of harmful legionella bacteria, hot water must be stored at 60°C or above. Unfortunately at this high temperature, healthy adult skin can be scalded with third degree burns in only five seconds.

The new Part G of the Building Regulations comes into force on 1st October 2009 and aims to help reduce the number of incidences of scalding by requiring that all baths and showers in new dwellings or new dwellings created by a change of use of an existing building have a device fitted that limits the temperature to 48°C. This is considered a safer temperature for adults and will help prevent these unnecessary deaths and injuries.

What’s the best way to limit water temperatures?

The most effective way of delivering safe hot water temperatures is by using a thermostatic mixing valve (TMV). A TMV will take the stored hot water and mix it in the correct proportions with the cold water supply to deliver a safe, stable temperature at point of use, whether it is a bath or basin.

TMVs are available in 15mm or 22mm pipe sizes.

While the legislative requirements of the new Part G only cover new dwellings or new dwellings created by a change of use of an existing building, Gurney & White Ltd and gwsupplies.co.uk believe in the interest of safety not only for the young and old, but for the safety of all. The installation of a TMV, either through the use of thermostatic bath shower mixers, or an under bath/basin thermostatic blending valve, should be standard practice for ANY bathroom refurbishment. Thermostatic mixing valves can also be added to existing plumbing to save an accident from happening.

Another advantage of fitting TMV blending valves is that of saving energy by not wasting hot water and thereby reducing the household’s carbon footprint.

GW Supplies stock a range of Intamix TMV blending valves in 15mm and 22mm sizes, and Inta, Bristan and Hansgrohe thermostatic bath shower mixers.

Aquavida Pool Remodeling Specializes In Swimming Pool Remodeling And Resurfacing, Offering Eco-Friendly Pool Solutions

Green’s the new black, as the fashionistas of the world would say, and it’s hitting the pool and spa runway full force. Energy-saving, eco-friendly products are making their way into the market, teasing dealers with trendier options and enticing homeowners to save a buck or two — not to mention the Earth. It’s time to look into upgrading and revamping the pool and making way for the next generation of “greener” pastures.

“The average age of pools we are remodeling is 15 to 20 years old,” says Thomas Lopez, president of Aquavida Pools in Phoenix. “At that point in time, they didn’t really offer any economical or efficient motors back then.” But times have changed, and repair-driven pool remodels are now taking a backseat to lifting up the hood and replacing what’s inside — because you want to, not because you have to.

Pool remodeling can be costly, especially if moving toward a more eco-friendly backyard. It’s an investment, says Lopez, and one that not everyone is able to make.

Green pool makeovers are a smaller part of the remodels Aquavida Pools does, says Lopez, because of the financial investment Green renovations can cost anywhere from $1000 to $35,000, adds Lopez, depending on what’s being done.

One of the main consumer selling points of going green — besides being more eco-friendly, of course — is the financial payback. But the initial cost of the project can scare customers away from green renovations. In today’s unstable economy, customers may have a hard time seeing beyond the bottom line and into the future.

Pump Magic
For the consumer who has just started thinking about remodeling a pool, there is a good place to start that doesn’t break the bank. “Probably the most economical approach is the basic industry-standard upgrade pump, an [energy efficient motor],” suggests Lopez. “The armatures in the motors consume less energy,” adds Lopez, so at a minimum, he recommends customers doing this upgrade.

But for consumers who are able to put a little more investment into their pool remodel, Lopez recommends a programmable pump. While these pumps generally cost more than the standard upgrade, their payback is well worth it.

Behind The Curtain
Micromanaging the pool through the use of a home automation system has really taken off, and while it’s more popular to the buying public as a convenience, manufacturers are eagerly finding ways for consumers to understand its energy-saving purpose, as well.

Incorporating an automated system during the pool remodeling process is a must have for the pool owner on the go. Time is a precious commodity these days and an automated pool makes life that much simpler.

“Controls themselves add flexibility and automation to managing the pool, even if people have got time clocks,” says Lopez. “Whenever you’ve got a proper pool controller, you can have multi-day or weekend settings. You can have settings for different periods of the year.”

Not only does automation offer a finer, more optimized control of pump speed, but it also allows “you to do a better job of managing energy-efficient equipment.You claim more energy savings from it, and at times, it’s what actually enables the energy savings in some of the other equipment.

Here And There
Little upgrades also mean bigger savings. Lopez recommends owners change over to LED lighting. The lights consume considerably less power and they last a lot longer, not to mention, “you probably have around a 80 percent savings in energy consumption with LED lighting,” he adds.

A simpler renovation suggestion is a programmable time clock. Phoenix’s swim season ends around the middle of October, says Lopez, but he notes that customers with a typical Intermatic time clock would still allow the pool to run on an eight-hour cycle, even during the off-season.

“So when you have a programmable time clock, you are able to put two program groups in it and set it to the exact day, so it will switch from group A to B, meaning summer and winter,” adds Lopez. Oftentimes, Lopez groups the time clock with the standard energy-efficient motor, inviting customers to start with a small, yet affordable eco-friendly renovation.

“Clearly, when you look at the energy savings opportunity, that falls in very nicely with the big push that’s going on in the world at large,” says Lopez. “Everybody is paying attention to the energy crisis. We aren’t green for the sake of being green. Everything is focused on the payback for the consumer. People are looking for the payback.”

Correct Building Products, manufacturer of CorrectDeck CX with Microban antimicrobial product protection, expands composite deck recycling to include jobsite scrap

Correct Building Products(R), manufacturer of CorrectDeck(R) CX with Microban(R) antimicrobial product protection, has announced on May 9, 2007 a pilot program to collect plastic wood composite jobsite scrap, complementing its active recycling program.

This information is timely as spring deck building season arrives. Additionally, more consumers are expressing interest in “green” building products. What many consumers and contractors are unaware of is that Correct Building Products produces composite decking made from recycled materials that can be recycled again. Green-conscious consumers can select CorrectDeck composite products with confidence.

Made from Recycled
CorrectDeck composite decking is made from 80 percent recycled ingredients such as waste sawdust, recycled plastic and polypropylene recycled materials. Located in Maine, Correct Building Products harvests scrap from local lumber yards as well as collects polypropylene bins from retailers and post offices. The manufacturing plant recycles and reprocesses all manufacturing scrap at the factory, meaning all downfall is recycled. There are no emissions and zero manufacturing waste. “Most forms of plastic recycling transform the plastic into a less valuable product,” said Martin Grohman, president of Correct Building Products. “Upcycling is very rare, but these products ‘upcycle’ a low-value waste product like sawdust into a high-value product such as premium composite decking.”

Completely Recyclable
All CorrectDeck products are also completely recyclable as a finished product – free of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) – and can be safely incinerated. CorrectDeck products are also printed with their resource content “60 Wood/40 PP” to make future recycling easier.

“Composite deck material is quite recyclable – it contains no thermosetting materials and is rot-resistant. In fact, recycling of composites is routinely done,” added Grohman. “We’re doing our best to promote recycling and to reduce the usage of unsustainably-harvested tropical hardwoods.”

Jobsite Recycling
The company will also be instituting a scrap recycling program to make efficient use of waste produced on jobsites. Recyclable materials include decking, railings and even installation sawdust. The test program includes a recycling container located outside CorrectDeck’s largest dealer, Hancock Lumber. “Once we get the process worked out,” noted Grohman, “we’ll expand the program as quickly as possible. Contractors have to pay to dispose of scrap. This free program will not only help them, it helps the environment.”

Correct Building Products(R) LLC is a $30MM+ producer of wood-composite products of all types, including CorrectDeck(R) and CorrectDeck(R) CX composite decking, RapidRail(R) and RapidRail(R) CX composite railing, and Dimensional Composite Lumber.
