The project transforms and enlarges a small house located in the center of Brussels. The architectural intervention is limited to the addition of an extension at the rear facade that connects the living spaces to the existing small garden. The added volume is carved near the adjoining terraces for respect of the direct neighborhood and to limit the densification of the island interior. Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDThe small width of façade (less than 5 meters), the formal complexity of the volumetry developed, the limited timing of construction and the difficulties of access have oriented the architectural design towards the prefabrication of a steel shell.Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDThe ancestral methods of boilermaking, and modern welds, together with a thorough reflection of the structural capabilities of steel sheets have reduced to a strict minimum the amount of material required for the realization of the module.Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Severin MALAUDThe new shell consists of a single sheet of steel 5mm thick. It is stiffened by a set of 5 stiffening gantries of 20mm thick for 100mm deep. This simple structure makes it possible to optimize the space generated by the intervention. The new envelope regulates all interior finishing details generated by the complex formal volumetry generated by the project. This allowed to integrate the staircase to the envelope to minimize the cost of implementation.Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Severin MALAUDWith a simple painting, the steel becomes the visual signature and the inner skin of the project. Finally, the physical characteristics of steel allow it to serve as a natural vapor barrier vis-à-vis the outer insulation that surrounds it completely. The principle of prefabrication allowed a significant saving of time for the implementation of the project: 3 weeks of manufacture in workshop, 1 week of painting, and only 3 hours for installation by mobile crane. Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDSteel also has the advantage of being 100% recyclable, suggesting that within a few decades, the module can be extracted from the project and recycled in its entirety. Save this picture!© Severin MALAUDThis project is a prototype meeting the many constraints related to the act of transforming and expanding into a city.

Lowering the cost of IT

Tagged with: Technology Howard Lake | 17 February 2008 | News Ian Ryder, Managing Director of IT infrastructure support and management company appiChar Ltd, argues that uncertain financial times ahead make it a good time for charities to review their IT support.As we head further into 2008, it’s becoming clear that the recent years of easy money are coming to a close and that belt-tightening will be a growing theme over the next few years. This is likely to have an impact on everyone from the smallest charity up to government itself. Indeed, for a lot of government-funded organisations this is where the biggest worry may come from – a government that has borrowed heavily during the boom years is likely to have to cut back just as the economic cycle turns down and tax revenues decline.If this situation does come to pass, organisations will need to look for effective ways to save money without affecting the quality of service. IT outsourcing offers many organisations one of the simplest and productive ways to achieve this.As an example, an organisation with 100 staff may have two full time IT staff costing over £60,000 per year plus other overheads such as management time, office space and possible recruitment fees. Outsourced help means that you often get access to a team of highly experienced professionals at a fraction of the cost of employing individuals and it also means that you always have back up to cover for sickness and holidays.To outsource a standard Microsoft-based system will cost a lot less per year and you get an accountable supplier that doesn’t go on holiday, doesn’t have sick days and doesn’t say ‘we’re busy, come back next week’! On top of this, a good partner is able to retain good staff as they offer a clear career path which most small to medium organisations can not always offer. Often the alternative is to recruit someone really experienced, but you then run the risk that they will leave after 12 months or recruit someone who means well but IT probably wasn’t the career they had in mind… they’re guaranteed to be there for 10 years!Of course, as with recruitment, the most important thing with outsourcing is to get the right people. It’s no good to outsource your crown jewels to someone that may or may not deliver. Finding a partner that can clearly demonstrate that they have relevant experience, skills and track record is crucial.As a personal anecdote, several years ago I was the IT manager for a well known not for profit organisation with about 50 staff. I had one full time support person and also a volunteer. I now wonder what we did all day…attend a lot of IIP meetings I seem to recall. Now as a provider of outsourced IT services we can deliver full support and management services to similar sized organisations with about 3 days per month – somehow it took 45 days+ with an internal team!In this day and age for many small to medium organisations trying to manage an internal IT department makes very little financial sense and may well not be resulting in the best level of service available to the organisation.appiChar Ltd is a specialist in implementing, managing and supporting the IT infrastructures behind over 100 not for profit organisations.www.appichar.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

France 24 correspondent tortured for covering pro-democracy demonstrations

first_imgNews News BahrainMiddle East – North Africa Tenth anniversary of Bahraini blogger’s arrest German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors to go further When Nazeeha Saeed, the Bahrain correspondent of France 24 and Radio Monte Carlo Doualiya, was summoned to a police station in the city of Rifa’a for questioning at midday on 22 May, she expected to be back home two hours later and had no inkling of the nightmare awaiting her.On arriving at the police station, she took a seat and waited calmly. Other women, mainly nurses, were also waiting, sitting on the floor.An hour later, she was called. She entered an office where there was a male officer. In a quiet but unsettling voice, he told her to answer the questions that would be put to her. He then left her with a female officer, who accusing her of “lying” in her reports and told her to admit her links with the Hezbollah TV station Al-Manar and the Iranian Arabic-language TV station Al-Alam. “You must confess,” the woman kept repeating, going on to accuse her of participating in the pro-democracy demonstrations that have taking place in Bahrain since March.An hour later, she was taken to another office. There, a woman police officer mocked and insulted her. When Nazeeha ignored her, the policewoman grabbed her by the chin, held it hard, and slapped her with the other hand. “You must tell me the truth,” she screamed, continuing to slap her and then seizing her by the hair and throwing her to the ground. Four policewomen proceeded to slap, punch and kick her repeatedly. One of the women took her shoe and forced it into her mouth. “You are worth less than this shoe,” she said.With the shoe still in her mouth, she was dragged to yet another office, where she was blindfolded and was initially made to stand. Then she was forced to kneel on a chair, facing the back of the chair, exposing her back and the soles of her feet, which were now beaten repeatedly with a piece of flexible black plastic tubing. As she cried out with pain, a police officer kept shouting “Shut up and answer my questions” without asking any questions or without giving her time to say anything.She continued to be accused of lying and of “harming Bahrain’s image.” The blows kept on coming. The blindfold finally fell from her eyes and she noticed the male officer, the one who had spoken to her initially, coldly observing the scene.Nazeeha was then taken to a room where there were other women, nurses, who were awaiting their turn to be interrogated.After a while, she was taken back for another interrogation session. The nightmare resumed. Blindfolded again, she was told to bray like a donkey and to walk like an animal. A new humiliation. And she was beaten again. At one point, a woman held a plastic bottle against her mouth. “Drink, it’s urine,” the woman cried, pressing her lips against the mouth of the bottle. Nazeeha managed to knock the bottle out of the policewoman’s hand, but the policewoman picked it up and poured part of its contents over her face. Nazeeha did not know what it was, but it stung her face.She was taken to another office and was forced to kneel on a chair again. The soles of her feet, her back, her arms and her head were again beaten with the plastic tube.She was taken back to the room where other women were waiting and the blindfold was removed. When she recovered the use of her eyes, she saw that it was past midnight. All the women, including Nazeeha, were now allowed to go to the toilet and were brought food. They were also brought documents to sign, without being able to read them. Nazeeha signed.The policewoman who had initially received her at the police station checked all the women with a stethoscope and told them they would be sent to prison for 45 days, pending trial.The head of the police station nonetheless asked to see Nazeeha. He told her he was very surprised to find her there and pretended not to know she had been interrogated. She was allowed to phone her mother and was finally allowed to return home. But she has not yet recovered from the ordeal. She continues to suffer physical and psychological after-effects.The interior ministry subsequently announced proceedings against those responsible for the mistreatment. Nazeeha gave an account of her ordeal to the military prosecutor in charge of the investigation. She is currently in France receiving medical care and is due to return to Bahrain tomorrow.Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the way this journalist was mistreated and urges the authorities to carry out an independent and transparent investigation that sheds all possible light on this shocking and disgraceful episode. Those responsible should be charged and tried, as should those in the chain of command who were involved.This young woman’s case gives a glimpse of the treatment of journalists by security forces in Bahrain. The list of detained reporters, photographers and cyber-dissidents keeps on getting longer amid complete indifference on the part of the international community.

Security concerns make US tough for relocations

first_imgBy Mike Berry It also uncovered other major shifts in the wayinternational transfers are being managed compared with last year’s study. The US has been named as one of the world’s three mostchallenging countries for relocating employees, due to the threat of terrorismand the measures put in place to prevent it. Previous Article Next Article www.gmacglobalrelocation.com The survey reflects responses from 134 multinationalorganisations representing almost 7,500 offices around the world. “This year’s survey captures some of the businessrepercussions involving mobility to the US in an environment of increasedsecurity,” said Brian Glade, vice-president of international programs forSHRM. The US was cited as being particularly challenging by theemployees relocating, as well as for the HR professionals who handle thetransfers. Companies surveyed said up to 70 per cent of theirtransferring employees would have an assignment length of one year or less.This represents a major shift from the past historical average, the surveysaid, with just 13 per cent of all assignments being for a year or less. Comments are closed. Two-thirds of respondents indicated their companies wereattempting to reduce international assignment expenses in response to currenteconomic conditions, with more than half seeking alternatives. The report said companies are increasingly relying on localhiring as a substitute for sending expatriates on assignments. Chief among the complaints were delays in obtaining socialsecurity numbers and visas, immigration restrictions, and dissatisfaction withthe US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The annual Global Relocation Trends Survey, produced by GMACGlobal Relocation Services, the US National Foreign Trade Council and theSociety for Human Resource Management (SHRM), placed the US third in posing thegreatest challenges to relocating employees in terms of language, culture andother obstacles.

Plans to force property portals to carry EPC certificates under fire

first_imgPropertymark has endorsed the government’s plans to make Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket play a greater role in transparency within the property market but has criticised Ministers’ proposals to make them carry proof of EPC certificates.The Government has been pushing the big portals to play a bigger part in aiding compliance and making the sales and rental markets more transparent for some time now.This has included attempts by the housing ministry and National Trading Standards to persuade portals to carry more statutory property information, as well as prevent portal juggling and prevent landlords stipulating ‘no DSS’ in adverts.But when it comes to EPCs, Propertymark says the picture is more complicated.“For instance, it is not common practice to advertise the tenancy type or whether the property has an exemption under the energy efficiency rules,” its submission to the government’s recently-ended consultation on tougher EPC regulations says.“Furthermore, rooms in shared accommodation are not required to have an EPC unless it is required for the property as a whole.Compliance“Private landlords cannot advertise directly on property portals, so based on the consultation document which states that around 43 per cent of landlords use a letting agent to either let or let and manage a property for them, this means the UK Government is focusing a large proportion of it is future enforcement activity and compliance on less than half of the sector.”Propertymark has also given feedback back on several other issues related to EPCs, including how forcing landlords to reach EPC band C by 2028 for their rented properties is ‘unrealistic’.Read its full consultation submission.National Trading Standards MHCLG Energy Efficiency Rating EPCS January 21, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
