Royal Leamington Spa has a strong architectural heritage dating back to when the town was a popular Victorian spa resort. The Old Library and The Gallery have been converted into 30 private luxury residential units ranging from studios to large 3 bedroom houses. The proposed design is sympathetic to the local history and context, blending original heritage features and character with crisp, modern interior design, incorporating multi-level living spaces and with integrated technology, modern appliances and energy efficiency. Being a Grade II listed building, demolition and rebuilding was not considered an appropriate solution for the site.Save this picture!Courtesy of TateHindleAn expansive landscaped communal courtyard has been created within the building by opening up an existing glazed atrium. This intervention helped to unlock the potential of the building for residential use,  allowing for double aspect apartments, more  daylight  as well as creating a tranquil area for residents to relax on sunny days. The large floor to ceiling heights of the former public building have been cleverly adapted to create an intermediate  level of accommodation to the courtyard side while retaining the larger original double height spaces for living and dining. The roof volumes were sensitively modified to create split level units in the roof space, some of which have roof terraces overlooking the central courtyard.Save this picture!Courtesy of TateHindleNew windows have been sensitively introduced to the external brick facades to keep in character with the original building. The existing  brick façade has been restored and retained with ornate terracotta motifs and door window surrounds, arched entrance portico, turrets and and a bell tower. The internal courtyard reveals a modern façade of punctured openings of aluminium glazed windows set behind a veil of terracotta rainscreen cladding. The building has been delicately landscaped to soften the imposing scale and make it a desirable place to live. Save this picture!First Floor PlanSimon Tate of TAG states “Tate Hindle’s keen eye for design and detail comes through in the apartment spaces, the landscaped courtyard and eclectic mix  of the old and the new”Save this picture!Courtesy of TateHindleThe Building has been assessed under Part L1B and L2B of the building regulations. A variety of sustainable measures have been adopted to improve the environmental performance of the building. These include an high efficiency condensing boiler, photovoltaic panel system, , LED lighting, meter provision for individual energy source consumption and PIR sensors to communal lighting. The primary Low to Zero Carbon Technology (LZC) technology installed are Photovoltaics (45 no. panels of 235w/p capacity) contributing to an on-site generating capacity of 10.58 kWe maximum load. This equates to 8,898.75 kWHRs of displaced electricity (for a typical 850 hour season), resulting a CO2 reduction of 5,106 kGCO2 per annum or 5.79% for the site. The predicted annual C02 emissions is 88,118.48 Kg C02/Yr and the energy demand is 459,697.65 KW Hrs/Yr. The actual building usage figures are currently unavailable as the project was only recently  commissioned. The air tightness tests of the flats demonstrated performance levels in excess of Part L requirements. Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse for 60 Friends / Martin HurtadoSelected ProjectsEmerging Practices in India: Abin Design StudioInterviewsProject locationAddress:Avenue Road, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire CV31 3PF, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.

Required fields are marked * Make a comment July 5 is the busiest day for animal shelters everywhere. Pets scared by the loud noises of the Fourth of July fireworks run away from their homes. Humane officers and concerned citizens bring many cats and dogs that are confused and exhausted to safety at the shelter. PHS recommends the following tips:• Do not take pets to watch fireworks.• Keep pets inside during Fourth of July celebrations. Keeping them confined at home will help them to feel safe. Playing a radio may help diffuse the loud noise of fireworks.• Be certain that pet’s ID tags are current. Update pet’s microchip information if necessary. A visible form of identification is the best way to ensure that pets can be returned home.• If a pet may become extremely agitated or stressed, consult a veterinarian and discuss the possibility of sedatives or overnight boarding. Pet owners can call an animal behavior specialist to work with pets, but do this well in advance.• If a pet runs away, search the kennels of the shelter closest to home. Many shelters post photos of the animals that come into their facility on their website. PHS’ website, www.pasadenahumane.org, is updated hourly so that lost animals may be quickly reunited with their owners. Post signs and visit nearby shelters for at least the next month. Animals can run a long way when they are badly frightened.• If a cat is lost, it may stay in hiding for several days or weeks, so be sure to leave plenty of food and fresh water outside. (Pick it up at night so unwanted wild animals aren’t attracted.) Post signs and check local and neighboring shelters in person and online; a pet’s description may fit several animals in the shelter.PHS will have extra animal control officers on duty the evening of July 4 and will open at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 5 to help reunite lost pets with their families. The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is located at 361 S. Raymond Ave, Pasadena.About the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCAThe Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is an open door, community-funded center, which provides all animals a place where they receive a safe haven, care and respect.

This was told by Mr. Rahul Mehra, Standing Counsel for Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi, to the Court. The Division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar was further informed that apart from Mr Mehta, a team of Special Counsel for Delhi Police would also include ASG Maninder Acharya, ASG Aman Lekhi, Standing Counsel (UOI) Amit Mahajan, and Advocate Rajat Nair. This development came in a writ petition moved by Aqil Hussian, wherein a controversy arose between the Delhi Government and the Central Government relating to who would represent the Delhi police.On February 26, Rahul Mehra had objected to the appearance of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta in the case filed by Harsh Mander seeking probe into Delhi riots.Following that, on February 27, the Lieutenant General of Delhi passed an order appointe Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to represent Delhi Police in the case filed by Harsh Mander.However, there still existed a confusion if the LG can directly appoint counsel for Delhi police by passing the Delhi Government. This has been now settled with the Delhi Government also approving the appointment of SG Tushar Mehta and the other three special counsel. On May 29, Mr Rahul Mehra submitted that , it is only on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers of the GNCTD that the power under Section 24(8) Cr.P.C. to appoint the Special P.P./ Special Counsel can be exercised by the Lieutenant Governor, and that the Lieutenant Governor has no independent power to make such appointments. Mr. Mehra further submitted that the Delhi Police has accepted that position since it had applied for the appointment of Special P.P./ Special Counsel to the Ministry of Home, GNCTD and appropriate orders have been issued by the Home Minister of Delhi Government, Mr Satyendra Jain. Appearing for the Centre, Mr Amit Mahajan submitted that the approval of the Home Minister of the GNCTD has been obtained by the Delhi Police, so as to avoid the controversy and the same does not necessarily reflect the understanding of the Union of India with regard to interpretation of the judgment of the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in State (NCT of Delhi) Vs. Union of India & Another, (2018) 8 SCC 501. While noting that the present controversy does not survive for determination in the present case, the court observed: ‘We hope and expect that such like issues would be similarly resolved in other cases as well, so that the focus of the Court remains on determination of the merits of the disputes before it, rather than on such like issues.’ The matter will now be heard on June 08.Click here to download the Order Next Storylast_img read more

Yang targets vacant lots with $900 million tax plan

first_img Commercial Real EstateDevelopmentmayoral racePoliticstaxes With at least $1.3 billion in property taxes unpaid, and commercial building valuations (and tax bills) plunging during the pandemic, the plan would be timely, Yang said.But developers and trade groups are skeptical, arguing the tax would make properties more expensive to build out.“The city’s property tax system is fundamentally broken and we agree with Andrew Yang that it needs comprehensive reform, but this idea will not help to achieve that goal,” James Whelan, president of the Real Estate Board of New York, told the Post.Martha Stark, who was finance commissioner under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, thinks Yang could be on to something but that his math is off. She estimated the plan would raise closer to $500 million.Yang’s plan is hardly novel; tax surcharges on vacant land, storefronts and homes have been proposed for years, but never enacted.[New York Post] — Suzannah CavanaughContact Suzannah Cavanaugh Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Tags Share via Shortlink Andrew Yang (Getty, iStock)Andrew Yang sees nearly $1 billion in untapped property tax revenue sitting in New York City’s vacant lots.The contender for mayor announced a plan Thursday to hike taxes on empty commercial lots by 500 percent over five years, the New York Post reported. The idea is to kickstart development but Yang estimated the plan could rake in $900 million a year for the city.Vacant commercial land is taxed based on a valuation of less than 20 percent of what it would actually sell for, which Yang said disincentivizes development, the Post reported. By taxing properties on their sales price, he argues, the city would rake in cash and encourage owners to build.Read moreDoes Andrew Yang’s housing plan make sense?

Antarctic mapping: a bleak future?

first_imgAntarctic cartographers face many challenges. They are required to prepare accurate maps of a remote and dangerous environment in support of science programmes, logistic operations, and search and rescue activities. Yet they have limited resources in terms of manpower, funds and primary source material for this vital work, perhaps because their science discipline is held in low esteem by their peers. They are commonly regarded as service providers rather than scientists in their own right.last_img read more

Generation of EMIC Waves and Effects on Particle Precipitation During a Solar Wind Pressure Intensification With Bz>0.

first_imgDuring geomagnetic storms, some fraction of the solar wind energy is coupled via reconnection at the dayside magnetopause, a process that requires a southward interplanetary magnetic field Bz. Through a complex sequence of events, some of this energy ultimately drives the generation of electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves, which can then scatter energetic electrons and ions from the radiation belts. In the event described in this paper, the interplanetary magnetic field remained northward throughout the event, a condition unfavorable for solar wind energy coupling through low‐latitude reconnection. While this resulted in SYM/H remaining positive throughout the event (so this may not be considered a storm, in spite of the very high solar wind densities), pressure fluctuations were directly transferred into and then propagated throughout the magnetosphere, generating EMIC waves on global scales. The generation mechanism presumably involved the development of temperature anisotropies via perpendicular pressure perturbations, as evidenced by strong correlations between the pressure variations and the intensifications of the waves globally. Electron precipitation was recorded by the Balloon Array for RBSP Relativistic Electron Losses balloons, although it did not have the same widespread signatures as the waves and, in fact, appears to have been quite patchy in character. Observations from Van Allen Probe A satellite (at postmidnight local time) showed clear butterfly distributions, and it may be possible that the EMIC waves contributed to the development of these distribution functions. Ion precipitation was also recorded by the Polar‐orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite satellites, though tended to be confined to the dawn‐dusk meridians.last_img read more
