The GOOD DESIGN award was founded in Chicago in 1950 and remains the world’s oldest and most significant awards program that honours new and important design produced around the world.

This year the Chicago Athenaeum awarded several awards, one of which went to Sentido. This touch-sensitive light switch, which integrates with KNX smart home systems, allows you to control everything in the house with one single touch. It is divided into two or four equal surfaces, each with its own functionalities. The entire surface of Sentido is touch-sensitive, creating an innovative and unique user experience. Lights, curtains and blinds can be operated even at the slightest touch. Touching more than one surface at the same time, turns on and off all the lights
in a room using a general scene. This multi-touch function makes light control highly intuitive and user-friendly. Sentido also has an internal temperature sensor, that discretely reports the temperature to the home automation system.

Sentido’s sleek and minimalistic design brings light switches to enter a new era. The
use of high-grade metals results in a timeless design, that blends in every architectural
environment. Sentido is one of the best awarded light switches worldwide as it has already won various prestigious design awards. Besides this GOOD DESIGN award, Sentido also won a « Reddot design award », an « iF product design award » and recently a « Manufacturer’s Excellence Award »and a « Resi Award » at CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado, US.

<![CDATA[Inner linings and wood ceilings in wineries]]> Wineries have become the venue of some of the greatest wood projects in the world. Not only do you find wood in the ubiquitous barrels. For many years, wineries have implemented wine tourism programmes and opened their facilities to the public. If you know that you are going to receive visitors at home, you take greater care in decorating it and making it look nice to offer the best image; and wineries are no different.
New rooms, such as reception halls, museums, wine stores, auditoriums, restaurants and private dining rooms make up the new hospitality areas in wineries across the world. These new spaces have large wood design ceilings, wood walls decorated with wood panels or special wood slats. Their offices and auditoriums have a false ceiling with removable ceilings or accessible ceilings, and the wood panelling that converts a cold room into a welcoming space can be found in every corner.
Furthermore, receiving many visitors means having large rooms which are acoustically susceptible to unbearable reverberations. Again, wood comes into play. The acoustic conditioning of these new spaces requires the use of sound-absorbent wood through the installation of acoustic panels on walls and ceilings that help control reverberation. Acoustic ceilings and soundproof doors or acoustic doors (as well as fire doors or FR doors necessary for safety reasons) top the list of wood items used in the acoustic conditioning of wineries in the 21st century.]]>

<![CDATA[The new DynamicX2 of Arthur Holm, presented at ISE 2015, receives a Best of Show Award]]>
The new DynamicX2 is a retractable motorized monitor that has been re-designed with a new-ultra thin housing and integrating new functionalities. DynamicX2 series are silent, fast, reliable, individually addressable and remotely diagnosable. They are HDCP compliant and provide a safety system which stops the mechanism in case of resistance.

These monitors provide automatic tilting by using only one engine; a system which is protected by an international patent. This means less components, higher reliability (5 years warranty), less noise and no maintenance. Its passive cover plate prevents dirt and any kind of object from falling inside the mechanism and the lift system has different speed levels depending on the screen position, having as a result a harmonic drive and eluding abrupt movements.

The new DynamicX2 add exclusive features in terms of control and factory service. They integrate an Interactive Setup Display, which allows individual addressing (30 monitors can be individually controlled through one port), shows on the LCD screen the command which has been received and helps to optimize installation time and costs. A secondary menu, allows the adjustment the speed and auto calibration of the system of the monitor. All monitors are HDCP compliant, assuring high bandwidth digital content protection compatibility.

The AHnet monitor control software facilitates the installation, control and administration of the ARTHUR HOLM motorized products. It has been designed to control and diagnose any installation of ARTHUR HOLM Dynamic products. It allows individual, group or overall control. It allows the creation of different memories to help to setup the arrangement of the room to respond to different work scenes. These are stored in the memory and can be retrieved by a single click.

The enormous building is equipped with a stunning durable zinc roof. It presented a considerable challenge for zinc processor Ridder / Skins For Buildings and zinc supplier NedZink. Not just because of the size but also due to the project’s height - installing the new NedZink NOVA Pro-Tec took place at a height of 38 metres. That’s why both project partners adopted an intelligent, efficient working method. NedZink supplies coils of new NedZink NOVA Pro-Tec to the building site. Ridder produces standing seams from them on the ground. The 26-metre long standing seams are then hoisted on to the roof by a crane and firmly fixed in place on a solid roof construction with clips: a steel deck with profile plates covered in a layer of FOAMGLAS® a hundred millimetres thick. The construction, which began in October 2010, is expected to be completed in 2016. Then NATO can show off the largest zinc roof in Europe!]]>

<![CDATA[Functions of the Solar Thermal Glass Robin Sun]]>
- Solar thermal collector (Solar Keymark 011-7S918): Coming from the integrated solar thermal collector element and associated reflectors strips. It was firstly designed to realize heating assistance in low energy buildings and to produce there tap water all over the year. Usual dimensioning permit to cover easily approx. 60% of hot water needs and 20 to 60% of heating demands (depends mainly of the insulation level).

- Solar factor (g-value or SHGC): Corresponds to the total amount of solar energy transferred inside the building when the fluid temperature is lower than the storage +5K. Typically the solar gain and reemissions represent:
– in the facades: 20% minimum in heating periods and tend to 5% in summer time.
– in the roofs: 25% minimum in heating periods and tend to 11% in summer time.
Our regulation permits with micro-recirculation (period, frequency, time are free parameters) to adapt the thermal capacity of solar thermal glass to the building.
In association with a bigger storage, a match flow fluid circulation strategy permit to influence the solar factor.

- Insulation (Ug): In the center of the insulated double glass unit, the solar collector element with its low emissivity coating, works like a radiative barrier and limit the glass internal convections.
The warm transfer is influenced by the water temperature and surrounding temperature (inside/outsides). Even without solar flux, each water circulations contribute to modify the warm transfer, like for example in cloudy days (diffuse light) or during the night (natural water circulation). For this reasons, the Ug value indicated in our documents has to be considered like a theorical maximal value.]]>

<![CDATA[CLASSIC]]> Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:39:49 +0100 <![CDATA[Colorful Facade with HAVER Architectural Mesh]]>
Understanding that a hospital can feel ominous to a child, the owners asked the architectural firm, Ponikvar and Associates, to take an approach to the renovation that was child-friendly, while at the same time created a separate identity for the children’s hospital that would differentiate it from other areas of the facility. According to Jack Ponikvar, “We were challenged to do something that was child-like without being childish.”

This differentiation demanded a dramatic change to the exterior of the building. Months of reviewing design options and product research led the architecture firm and the construction management firm, Ajax Building Corporation, to consider a light and colorful alternative to the somberness of the existing brick façade with HAVER Architectural Mesh.

The woven wire mesh product by HAVER & BOECKER provided options not available with any other type of material. The color selection allowed for a bright, multi-color façade layered over the existing brick cladding, which would be appealing to young patients while also establishing a new identity for the building. Additionally, creating colored facades with architectural mesh presents a multitude of unique design options. The interaction of artificial light, daylight, transparency, luminosity and color ensures the stylistic effects of the façade change continually. And, the painted stainless steel wire mesh is incredibly durable, weather-resistant and virtually maintenance free.

Bringing the visually striking design to life was not without its challenges. The outermost skin of the façade is made up of 26 green painted MULTI-BARRETTE 8124 panels. These include 19, 85-foot long panels that diagonally slope approximately 19 feet over the span of the design. Supporting the mesh panels at the changing elevations to maintain the rolling hills visual provided a unique test for the installation team. However, overcoming the obstacles has proven worthwhile in the appearance of the finished product.

The wire mesh LARGO-PLENUS 2022 with a 25 percent open area was used for the Shands Children’s Hospital project.]]>

In the case of new buildings and refurbishment, the focus is generally on the longevity of the building. This in itself requires a green roof as it will protect the waterproofing from the effects of weather and temperature fluctuation and will contribute to considerably extending the lifetime of the roof. The question is whether the choice will be for an easy-to-maintain, self-regenerating extensive green roof or a roof garden that can also be used for example for “urban farming”. From a green roof point of view, virtually anything is possible, provided the building is structurally equipped to carry the required load. Even a roof-top school garden with tomatoes, berry bushes and apple trees can produce a successful harvest.

Seating areas, pathways and play areas can always be installed on roofs. For example, in the “Rasselbande” kindergarten in Erfurt/Germany, a tube slide goes directly from the roof down to the ground. Depending on the building and the design requirements, ZinCo can provide various system build-ups for professional greening, including suitable railing solutions that can be installed without roof penetration – a definite advantage from a construction point of view.

In addition to the classic extensive and intensive green roofs there is another use for a flat roof: combining a green roof with solar energy. In this case, the synergy effect begins with the equipment which includes base plates that are suitable for use on a green roof. The base plates secure the solar mountings in line with the principle of the superimposed load, without penetrating the roof waterproof membrane. During operation, the extensive green roof provides for a comparatively low ambient temperature and with that for an improved level of efficiency of approx. 4 % of the photovoltaic modules.]]>

Who looks in the fireplace, so this looks mirrored projection of the film over the fire ember bed. Energy-saving LED lamps illuminate the ember bed additionally from below and leave it still vivid. Crackling and popping sounds can be optionally switched. "Opti-fire V2" models do not have a heating option, are absolutely maintenance-free - and therefore particularly suitable for public places such as bars or restaurants. The fireplace inserts can be used in wall units, TV cabinet, or incorporated directly into the wall.

WINCHESTER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2015-- It’s a clean sweep! First in Brand Familiarity. First in Brand Used Most. First in Brand Used in the Past Two Years. First in Quality. Trex Company (NYSE: TREX), the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, dominated the 2015 Builder magazine Brand Use Study, outranking all other composite manufacturers in every subcategory measured for the Composite/PVC Decking industry.

This year’s Study sets multiple records, as it marks the first time in recent history that a single manufacturer has topped all four subcategories. It’s also the eighth consecutive year that Trex has earned no. 1 rankings in Brand Familiarity, Brand Used Most, and Brand Used in the Past Two Years.

“Since first inventing the concept of durable and low-maintenance outdoor living products more than 20 years ago, Trex has consistently elevated the category by introducing design and manufacturing innovations that have secured its position as the preferred brand among both consumers and professionals,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “These rankings speak to Trex’s core mission, and are a clear indication that quality, aesthetics and high-performance can go hand-in-hand with eco-friendly values.”

This year’s Study is the first since Trex completed its strategic transition to solely producing high-performance composite decking materials in 2014. All Trex® decking collections now feature the signature high-performance qualities first introduced in 2010 on the company’s game-changing Trex Transcend® decking line, which delivers superior durability and wear-resistance, along with ultra-low maintenance and long-lasting good looks.

In that same time period, Trex has expanded its offerings into a full portfolio of beautiful integrated outdoor living options. From its wide selection of railing to Trex Elevations® Steel Deck Framing, Trex Spiral Stairs™, Trex Outdoor Lighting™ and accessories such as pergolas, Trex Outdoor Furniture™ and the just-introduced Trex Outdoor Storage™ collection – Trex’s product mix has grown far beyond decking to offer homeowners complete outdoor living solutions.]]>

The Troja Bridge is the latest addition to the Prague ring road and will carry a dual carriageway, two tram lines and pedestrian and cycle paths over the river Vltava.

The unique criss cross formation of the hangers makes the bridge stiffer, and allows for greater length to height ratios to be achieved over standard bowstring arch bridges.

The bridge has a span of 200 metres while the arch is only 20 metres high at its highest point compared to a standard bowstring arch which would need to be 50 metres tall. This arch bridge design helped save up to 40% in material.
Macalloy supplied its 520 tension rods system to be used as the bridge hangers. Macalloy designed a unique fatigue resistant thread form for the project which was tested in accordance with EN 1993-1-11:2006 and meets the requirements of Eurocode 3 for fatigue connections in bridges.
The steel tension rods were tensioned using Macalloys Techno-Tensioner device – a device that enables on-site stressing of tension rods using a turnbuckle connection.]]>
