The “Único Building” is a group of twelve apartments distributed in eight floors, located in the area of Nueva Costanera.  The simplicity of its rectangular volumetry, contrasts with its meticulous envelope treatment, created with the main objetive of obtaining maximum internal confort and control of privacy for its residents, thus avoiding the residents´problem of incorporating elements external to the project itself.  For this reason, a second facade was designed independent of the main structure, allowing great thermal confort within enclosed wall areas and a dynamic solar control system and privacy in window areas. As a result, a great stony expression contrast was created with the dynamic perimetral perforated blinds. Continuous metal bands in every floor connect the terraces of the east facade with the envelope of the rest of the volume. These bands also incorporporate the guides that allow the blinds to slide.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!Detail Section – 1Save this picture!© Nico SaiehThe Project was thought of considering the highest standards of passive thermal confort in order to minimize the necessity for thermal conditioning equipment. To achieve this, all facades have incorporated flame retardant sprayed polyurethane, as well as clay alveolar palmettes attached through metallic profiles to create the effect of ventilated facades. Solar control is achieved using cristal Low E type thermopanel windows, which were preceeded by microperforated metallic blinds. These elements have a double objetive. In the first place, they sift the light and control the amount of incoming heat of different spaces. Furthermore, these panels give the facades a kinetic effect, depending on the hour of the day and the specific use the owners give to each different area.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!1st Floor plan – 1.250Save this picture!© Nico SaiehAs for temperature control, aerothermy was chosen as its technology takes advantage of the energy of external air. Direct cooling cycles are used in air conditioning  and the reverse to produce heating and hot water through an independent heat bomb for each apartment. Heat through aerothermy is sustainable and qualified as renewable energy by the European Union.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehProject gallerySee allShow lessMAD Architects Begins Construction on Mountainous Quzhou Sports Campus in ChinaArchitecture NewsShortlist for the 2018 Architectural Photography Awards RevealedArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Aurelio González 3450, Vitacura.

PSE&G, which has lobbied for the measure for months, has said that without an additional $300 million from ratepayers each year, it will have to close the three nuclear plants. Legislators pass incentive tax package to lure major companies to NJA corporate-tax incentive package intended to entice Amazon to build its new headquarters in NJ won final approval in the Legislature on Monday and has been sent to Gov. Chris Christie for his signature, according to a report from NJ Spotlight. The governor is expected to sign the measure, which would provide per-job tax credits worth as much as $10,000 annually to any company that is willing to hire at least 30,000 employees and invest at least $3 billion in a corporate headquarters in New Jersey. Amazon, based in Seattle, is looking for a place to build a second corporate headquarters that could employ as many as 50,000 employees. Bayonne is one of the many cities vying for the location. NJ to require six-month refills of birth controlA new birth control bill signed by Gov. Chris Christie will require insurers to pay for six-month supplies of birth control in New Jersey. The bill’s sponsors argued that having a half-year’s supply of birth control on hand isn’t just about convenience, it’s about staying consistent, according to a report from WHYY.Legislature removes NJPCA police powersThe Assembly passed a measure Monday that would turn over enforcement of animal cruelty laws to local police and county prosecutors and remove police powers from the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to a report from The Record.

Teaching technology

first_imgThis semester, nearly 50 students are logging on and learning through an innovative program at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. They are earning their UGA master’s degrees in agricultural leadership conveniently online. “The master’s program is designed to develop agricultural leaders,” said Dennis Duncan, head of the CAES department of agricultural education, leadership and communication, where the program is offered. Students in the Master of Agricultural Leadership, or MAL, engage with instructors and each other through online learning communities. “This program offers professionals an opportunity to obtain a master’s degree without commuting to Tifton, Griffin or Athens (where CAES has campuses),” Duncan said. “The objective of the program is to provide training for educators, county agents and other individuals seeking leadership positions at agricultural agencies, producer groups, government agencies and related businesses.” Diana King is one of several instructors engaging students in this new learning environment. “All professors teach differently,” King said. “My classes are asynchronous. I create a series of modules and students progress their way through them throughout the semester. I expect students to complete one module each week.” King’s online modules include reading assignments, instructional videos, quizzes and other course work. To foster communication, King has students in her Youth Organizations class participate in discussion boards and respond to each other’s posts. King holds online office hours where she is available to answer questions and facilitate discussions. Donald Gilman, Worth County High School teacher in Sylvester, Ga., and MAL graduate, said the online learning community helped him manage his career and schooling. “I chose the MAL program because it offered a unique opportunity to earn a master’s degree from the University of Georgia and do so by utilizing new technology rather than strictly face-to-face classes,” Gilman said. “I could attend class when it was convenient for me.” Gilman is now working on his doctorate degree. “The level of instruction in the MAL not only helped me deliver better programs to my students, but it also has prepared me for the rigors of the PhD program that I am currently enrolled in,” he said. Some courses are taught using online classrooms, essentially chat rooms with presentation tools. Instructors can chat via text or be heard, use web cams and present material through PowerPoint document sharing or screen sharing. Using technology like Wimba and Skype, professors deliver instruction to students across the state, or from other states. “Because it is online, we can have guest speakers from literally anywhere, because they can participate using distance technology” King said. Separate online classrooms are built for students to use while working on group projects. They can collectively contribute to presentations and participate in discussions. MAL courses include Youth Organizations, International Agricultural Development, Program Evaluation and Diffusion of Innovation — to name a few. Students hoping to become teachers can earn the certification required to lead a classroom in Georgia’s school system.

Thurston Economic Development Council Receives USDA Food Hub Grant

first_imgFacebook29Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston Economic Development CouncilThe U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded the Thurston Economic Development Council (EDC), the Washington State University (WSU) Thurston County Extension and the Northwest Agriculture Business Center (NABC) a Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP) Planning Grant to develop a Southwest Washington Food Hub.LFPP offers grant funds to support the development and expansion of local and regional food business enterprises to increase domestic consumption of, and access to, locally and regionally produced agricultural products, and to develop new market opportunities for farm and ranch operations serving local markets.“A food hub helps multiple local food producers aggregate their products in such a way as to make it easier for large purchasers like hospitals and colleges to buy more locally produced food. Establishing a Food Hub in our region will open markets to local food producers, increasing overall food production and increase local food options for consumers,” said Aslan Meade, Director of Strategic Alliances at the Thurston EDC.Meade explained that when economic development agencies in Spokane established the LINC food hub, Gonzaga University committed to participate as an initial buyer. This first guaranteed buyer allowed for the hub to establish and grow.  LINC is now a worker and farmer-owned cooperative with more than 50 local food producers selling their wares to multiple buyers throughout their region.In the planning phase of the Food Hub, any farmer or processor within Lewis, Thurston, Grays Harbor or Peirce counties, interested in selling into the hub should contact Aslan Meade at [email protected]last_img read more
