This longitudinal disposition gives place to full-empty successions, patios, connecting walkways, transverse views and a place created by time and discovered by surprise: a natural cave in the main access courtyard, which was integrated to the Project during the process of construction.Save this picture!Courtesy of Marià Castelló MartínezThe structure is easily comprehensible and manifests itself in three stratums with ascending levels of precision: the lower floor expresses  the obvious absence of containment walls added to the rocky layer, as well as the appearance of a small concrete structure that regulates the upper level of this floor and constitutes the support platform of the ground floor. On the upper floor, as if it were a real-scale scale model, the double-supported set up of the structure becomes evident from the inside, where it has been left seen in most cases. Here a single element (cross-laminated wood panels) cluster several functions: structure, closure and interior finishing.Save this picture!Section AThe superior quality of the used materials and their unions has played an important role in the process of creation and realization of the project. Bioconstruction criteria have given preference to natural materials and if possible from the construction place: sculpted rock, crushed gravel from the excavation, Capri limestone, pine and fir wood, recycled cotton panels, white Michael marble, high permeability silicate painter, etc. All this has reverted to hygroscopic enclosures which are permeable to water steam and guarantee pleasant and healthy indoor environment, while at the same time require fewer energy efforts for the proper building functioning. At the environmental level, the design provides passive bioclimatic systems of proven effectiveness in this climate, as well as water self-sufficiency thanks to a large volume rainwater cistern that reuses rainwater.Save this picture!Courtesy of Marià Castelló MartínezProject gallerySee allShow lessDatacenter AM4 / Benthem Crouwel ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMƯA Coffee Shop / 85 DesignSelected Projects Share Architects: Marià Castelló Martínez Area Area of this architecture project Spaincenter_img Products used in this ProjectWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesBuilding Engineer:Agustí Yern RibasStructure:Miguel Rodríguez Nevado, Ferran JuanInstallations:Javier Colomar RieraCollaborators:Marga Ferrer, Natàlia Castellà, Lorena Ruzafa, Elena VinyarskayaBuilder:Luis Tulcanazo Castro, Antonio Serra RequenaSubcontractors:iCarp Valencia S.L. / Velima System S.L. / Astiglass S.L. / Singularglass S.L.City:Platja de MigjornCountry:SpainMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!Courtesy of Marià Castelló MartínezText description provided by the architects. Bosc d’en Pep Ferrer is the traditional toponym of a large plot located next to the beach of Migjorn, on the south coast of the island of Formentera. This territory has a place that unleashes the desire to inhabit a oneiric view, where the horizon is only cut by the beautiful silhouette of the Pi des Català Tower, built in 1763. The project focuses on the duality between the telluric and the tectonic. The heavy and the light. The earth and the air. The handcrafted and the technological. Compression effort and traction resistance. The rock, which comes to the surface in the chosen place, has been carved as if it were a sculpture, offering a cavity reminiscent of the  ‘marès’ stone quarries. A whole space materialized with a single stone. Monolithic. Megalithic. Stereotomic.

We need regulations that will benefit all sports federations. Deadlines will not help develop sports in the country. NCS needs to understand the concerns of FUFA and other Federations in this exercise’ said the FUFA President.Magogo warned that if NCS does not wait until after the FUFA general assembly that will discuss issues raised in October, world soccer governing body FIFA will see this as interference, and trigger a ban on the federation.He said FUFA had meanwhile wrote to NCS on 4th May, 2016 but a response is yet to be received on four key points highlighted in the letter.Key points in the FUFA letter to NCS;FUFA will register with the NCS under the new regulationsNotified NCS that there is a clash in opinion by Government Legal and FIFA Legal on the registration of FUFA under the Trustee Incorporation Actcenter_img FUFA requests for more time till October for the Constitution to be amended to match the NCS regulations.last_img read more

Town of Jupiter Reaches Deal with Harbourside Place

first_imgThe town of Jupiter and Harbourside Place have reached a deal over code violations in a noise battle. The two sides signed the agreement Tuesday night according to a magistrate. The deal comes after the town slapped $300,000 in fines for 21 code violations on the complex, claiming Harbourside needed a special permit to hold live events.The legal battle has been going on for months with noise complaints from nearby residents fueling the conflict.A statement from the town of Jupiter reads: Harbourside received an approval from the Town in 2014, and promised to implement all of the terms of that approval. Since then, Harbourside has never implemented the terms it agreed to in exchange for its approval. Nevertheless, Harbourside was permitted to open, and in exchange it promised to implement the terms of its approval at a later date. Harbourside has not kept that promise. Instead of keeping those promises, or seeking a change to the terms of the approval it received, Harbourside filed a Federal lawsuit against the Town in 2016 that seeks to avoid meeting the promises Harbourside has made to the Town. Since the Federal lawsuit was filed, the Town has proposed various solutions that would permit Harbourside to operate as it was approved. Each proposal has been flatly rejected by Harbourside, because it would like to operate without complying with the terms of its approval, or any other terms, other than those it believes to be appropriate. The Town believes that Harbourside, like any corporate citizen of the Town, should live up to its promises.last_img read more

first_imgLOVERS OF HISTORY are invited to tour 45 different local sites during “Weekend in Old Monmouth,” held throughout Monmouth County, on May 2 and 3.During the annual event, all entrance fees are waived. Many of the sites are staffed by members of local historical societies, who are happy to answer questions about the rich history and architecture around us.People can visit All Saint’s Memorial Church in Navesink to see the beautiful stained glass windows, climb the narrow steps of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, or visit Dr. Cooke’s Medical Office in Holmdel and see the curious tools from the doctor’s black bag.“Weekend in Old Monmouth is a wonderful event for any- one interested in history and architecture,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the county’s Historical Commission, the coordinator of the weekend event.“The sites on the tour are generally operated independently of one another, but this special tour project coordinates the hours of operation at several locations so history buffs can travel by foot, bicycle or car to enjoy and take in many of the county’s rich historic places all in one weekend.”John Fabiano, executive director of the Historical Com- mission, said the tours are grouped by theme or geography. “Tour visitors can see the places in any order of their own selection. The proposed starting points are just suggestions for those who may be seeking guidance.”The tours also represent several historic themes:• Shore: While the tour includes sites on the north, (Sandy Hook), central (Ocean Grove) and southern shores, (National Guard Militia Museum) the drive along the shore is one of the best ways to feel and appreciate Monmouth County’s relationship to the ocean.Faith: Architectural gems of each of the last three centuries, 18th century Christ Church in Shrewsbury, 19th century All Saints Memorial in Middletown and 20th century St. Catharine’s in Spring Lake. In addition, Old Tennent Church in Manalapan is closely tied to the Battle of Monmouth and the Friends Meeting House in Shrewsbury represents one of the oldest worship traditions in Monmouth County.The Revolutionary War: The Revolution is visited here, not only the major sites in the Monmouth Battlefield area, but in lesser known places such as the Burrowes Mansion in Matawan, Marlpit Hall and the Murray Farm, both in Middletown.Military: There is Fort Hancock at Sandy Hook, the most heavily fortified installation on the East Coast for much of the 20th century, the National Historic Landmark Monmouth Battlefield in Manalapan and one of the more fascinating, but lesser known museums, the New Jersey National Guard Militia Museum in Sea Girt with museum exhibits and fighter aircraft and tanks.Preservation: Marlpit Hall in Middletown was the first restored house museum in the region, dating from its 1930s opening.Other elements on the tour also include lighthouses, Victorian homes, agriculture, industry, education and science.The following sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 2 and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 3:All Saints Memorial Church, MiddletownAllaire Historic Village, WallAllen House, Shrewsbury Ardena School Museum, HowellBurrowes Mansion Museum, Matawan Centennial Cottage, Ocean Grove, Neptune Christ Church, ShrewsburyCovenhoven House, FreeholdDr. Cooke’s Medical Office, Holmdel Eatontown Museum, EatontownEden Woolley House, OceanOld First Church, MiddletownFirst Presbyterian Church, RumsonFriends Meeting House, ShrewsburyGreat Auditorium, Ocean Grove Holmes-Hendrickson House, HolmdelInfoAge Science Center (Camp Evans), WallJewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County, Freehold TownshipKeyport Fire Museum, KeyportLongstreet Farm, Historic, HolmdelMacKenzie House, HowellMarlpit Hall & Taylor-Butler House, MiddletownMonmouth Battlefield Monument at the Monmouth County Courthouse, FreeholdMonmouth Battlefield State Park, ManalapanMonmouth County Historical Association Museum, FreeholdJoseph Murray Farmhouse, MiddletownNational Guard Militia Museum, Sea GirtOakley Farm House, Freehold TownshipOcean Grove Historical Museum, Ocean GroveOld Yellow Meeting House, Upper FreeholdRed Bank Woman’s Club, Red BankRoosevelt BoroughSt. Catharine’s Church, Spring LakeSandy Hook Lighthouse, MiddletownSeabright Lawn Tennis & Cricket Club, RumsonSeabrook-Wilson House, MiddletownStrauss Mansion Museum, Atlantic HighlandsOld Tennent Church, ManalapanTwin Lights Lighthouse, HighlandsVillage Inn, EnglishtownOld Wall Historical Society, WallWalnford, Historic, Upper FreeholdWilson Hall at Monmouth University, West Long BranchWest Freehold School Museum, Freehold TownshipAfter April 15, a detailed tour book and tour map will be available on the Monmouth County website at the tour dates, each tour stop will also have maps and booklets available.last_img read more

We Will Never Forget: Donor to Replace Stolen 9/11 Plaques

first_imgPolice continue to investigate who stole plaques from the county’s 9/11 Memorial. Meanwhile, a donor has stepped forward to replace them.Photo by Allison Perrine News of the theft brought people “out of the woodwork” to voice their concerns, said Tom Fobes, superintendent of park operations in Monmouth County. “It was really something, I can say that. So, it really, to me, shows ushow special it is, some of thethings that we do and howimportant it is to the peoplewe do it for,” he said. “It’s aspecial place and people tooknotice as to what happened.” Four stones with cast bronze plaques sit on the ground along the timeline walkway that lays out the chronological events of that morning. In September, three of the four plaques were stolen in the night, ripped away from the stones that held them. The theft stung a community which has vowed to never forget the 9/11 victims and heroes. “We are a 100-year-old firm and have done charitable contributions for many years,” said Baum of the three-generation family business based in Freehold. When an employee who lives in the Atlantic Highlands area informed him about the vandalism, he said he wanted to replace the plaques. At 266 feet, the overlook is the highest point on the Atlantic seaboard, excluding islands, from Maine to the Yucatan. But now a donor has stepped forward to make things right again. Richard Baum of the W&E Baum Bronze Tablet Corp. said he will donate three new plaques replicating the ones that were taken. He could not say what it might cost, but he expects the plaques to be finished in six weeks. center_img Every Sept. 11 since the attacks in 2001 the county has held a memorial ser vice at Mount Mitchill. “We put a lot of time and effort into this event, we’re very proud of this event,” said Fobes. The new ones will bereplicas of the stolen onesand will be made from castbronze like the originals.Baum said the company isdevising special measuresto prevent future vandalismlike creating special gluesthat would make the plaquesharder to remove. The oldplaques were attached to thestones with an adhesive andhardware. The stones are just one par t of the special memorial, located at 460 Ocean Blvd. The stones and the timeline walkway lead to a large eagle sculpture that sits on dark marble etched with the names, ages and hometowns of the Monmouth County residents who died Sept. 11. The eagle sculpture holds a beam from one of the fallen towers. A scenic view of the New York City skyline draws contemplation. There is a quiet, solemn air at the site. ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Shortly after the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Monmouth County 9/11 Memorial at Mount Mitchill in Atlantic Highlands was vandalized. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.last_img read more

What is the role of the Gauteng Industrial Development Zone (GIDZ)?

first_imgGlobalisation is upon us and South Africa is ensuring readiness by adopting what is called Specialised Economic Zones (SEZ). According to Investopedia, an SEZ is a designated area in a country subjected to specialised economic regulations different from other areas. These zones play a huge role in encouraging trade and investment opportunities that benefit the country through job creation.The Gauteng Industrial Development Zone Company (‘Gauteng IDZ’) was founded in 2009 under the Gauteng Growth and Development Agency (GGDA) and was established with the purpose of developing and operating the designated Industrial Development Zone at OR Tambo International Airport. OR Tambo International Airport accommodates over 21 million passengers annually, making it Africa’s largest and busiest international airport.The vision of the GIDZ is “to identify, design, package and enable focused export driven manufacturing and beneficiation programmes for location at the OR Tambo International Airport IDZ. OR Tambo International is known for its exceptional infrastructure and resources. It is a well-positioned logistics and distribution hub for air cargo internationally and in the region. OR Tambo international is the largest air cargo airport on the African continent, with the capacity to handle 40 000 tonnes annually. 82% of South Africa’s cargo comes through OR Tambo.”How does an IDZ impact citizens? In an effort to reposition itself in the world economy, the South African government launched the Industrial Development Zones (IDZ) programme with the aim to facilitate inclusive and competitive economic growth in order for citizens to enter new jobs and benefit from the investments attracted.The GIDZ also runs a post-graduate Jewellery Design course called [email protected] The Jewellery Design Centre was established in 2013, and puts students through an 11-month course offering training in Marketing, Commercial Jewellery Design and Product Development, utilising state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Manufacturing technology.
