These existing buildings have been radically transformed by completely rethinking the internal configuration, punching larger openings through the building envelope and introducing private courtyards. This draws natural light deep into the floor plates and enriches the new residential use.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasLocated in a north-west London courtyard tucked between a Victorian terrace and main railway lines, this landlocked site presented a great design challenge. Our task was to convert and remodel a run-down industrial compound from the 1950’s into contemporary residential accommodation. The buildings, once a mechanic’s garage and office, today comprise a generous open-plan three-bedroom house and two one-bedroom apartments.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanExternally the buildings were re-faced, providing on the one hand the opportunity to create cavity walls and hence substantially upgrade the thermal performance; on the other a new façade material could be introduced, uniting what was previously a patchwork arrangement into a balanced composition. Responding to the courtyard setting a reflective façade material was used that glistens in the direct sunlight and give the development a jewel-like appearance. The shimmering surface changes with the light conditions and injects an element of surprise and nobility into the main courtyard.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe existing predominant material in the courtyard is brick, used on the rear facades of the Victorian terrace. This is in stark contrast to the ornate rendered front elevations, a treatment that Victorians esteemed. Our intention was to connect the development with its setting and pick up on this front : rear material relationship. Therefore we opted for brickwork as the courtyard facing material of the new residential units, however, because these elevations are the front facades of the new development we used the most elegant version of this traditional material – coated with a metallic bronze glazing. Along the rear elevation facing the railway lines we used a dark insulating render, inverting the Victorian strategy.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn order to distinguish the different parts of the development and to give each building its own identity, we introduced asymmetrical gables to the front facing elevations. Even the previously flat vaulted passageway into the courtyard picks up this theme and received an inverted gable.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasBrick is also the predominant material within the interior and was used as a device to record the buildings’ history. As walls were moved, ground floor slabs lowered and ceilings pushed up to maximize the height on the ground floor, changes in the bond of the white washed brick walls mark the previous position of these elements. The result is a richly textured internal perimeter, imbued with the memory of place. This is contrasted with polished and rough concrete finishes, a coffered ceiling and Oak paneling.Save this picture!SectionThe ground floor of the main residence accommodates the living, dining and kitchen areas. The open floor plan is structured by three elements: large openings bringing in the natural light, a sunken seating area set into the polished concrete floor and a wide staircase leading to the upper floors.Project gallerySee allShow lessCF House / Christian Calle FigueroaSelected ProjectsVideo: Steven Holl and the Architectural ExperienceArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Lyndon Douglas+ 15 Share 2014 Structural Engineers: Richard Jackson Engineering Consultants EC1 Refurbishments LLP Lighting Designer: The Gables / Patalab Architecture THD Consulting Engineerslast_img read more

TxDOT announces seal coat projects on area roads

first_img WhatsApp Twitter By admin – April 27, 2018 Facebook Twitter Pinterest Local News Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp TxDOT announces seal coat projects on area roads Two seal coat projects are scheduled this summer in the Odessa District of the Texas Department of Transportation. Weather permitting, work is expected to begin the week of Monday.Ronald R. Wagner & Co., LP, of Kendalia, Texas, won both contracts and will be working on both projects simultaneously. One project covers about 265 miles and has a low bid contract price of about $9.5 million. The second project covers about 98 miles and has a low bid contract price of about $2.6 million. Work will be done on interstates, farm to market roads, U.S. highways and state highways.Each year the Odessa TxDOT District seal coats select roads as part of a program to prolong the life of the roads. Seal coating offers three major benefits, according to TxDOT: it protects the road base by keeping water from seeping in; it seals cracks and stops them from spreading; and it provides a new surface which improves safety.It is likely that loose rocks will be encountered in the working areas during the seal coat process. Motorists are urged to find alternate routes if possible when work is happening.Pilot cars and flaggers will be used on the majority of both projects due to necessary lane closures. Wait times will vary depending on the amount of traffic. Motorists should obey any warning signs or flaggers they encounter, TxDOT advises. Slower speeds are also recommended.PROJECT ROADSANDREWS COUNTYSH 115 from 1 mile west of US 385 to Winkler County line.CROCKETT COUNTYFM 305 from Upton County line to Pecos County line.ECTOR COUNTYFM 554 from SH 158 to Loop 338.MARTIN COUNTYFM 3113 from FM 829 to SH 137.SH 137 from BI-20 to Midland County line.MIDLAND COUNTYSH 137 from Martin County line to Glasscock County line.BI-20 from West Wall Street to East Wall Street.Loop 40 near Midland International Air and Space Port.FM 715 from just north of I-20 to FM 1213.FM 868 (Midland Drive) from West Wadley Avenue to Andrews Highway (Business 158).PECOS COUNTYInterstate 10 and frontage roads from 0.4 miles west of FM 2886 to 2.1 miles east of US 190.FM 1776 from FM 1450 to US 285.Business Interstate 10 (Dickinson) from I-10 west of Fort Stockton to I-10 east of Fort Stockton.RM 2400 from US 285 to Terrell County line.US 285 from 18.9 miles south of BI-10 to Terrell County line.FM 305 from Crockett County line to US 190.US 190 from FM 305 to I-10.SH 349 from SH 290 to Terrell County line.FM 1450 from Reeves County line to 2 miles east of Reeves County line.RM 2593 from SH 18 to FM 1450.REEVES COUNTYFM 1450 from 5 miles east of US 285 to Pecos County line.FM 3398 from FM 1216 to Ward County line.FM 1216 from US 285 to end of state maintenance.FM 3334 from FM 2903 to SH 17.FM 3078 from I-10 to SH 17.FM 1215 from I-10 to end of state maintenance (4.4 miles).FM 2448 from SH 17 to I-10.TERRELL COUNTYUS 90 from 2 miles east of US 285 to Pecos County line.US 90 from 7.4 west of SH 349 to 10 miles east of SH 349.UPTON COUNTYRM 2401 from SH 349 to Reagan County line.WARD COUNTYFM 1776 from SH 18 to the Pecos River.I-20 frontage roads from 1.7 miles west of FM 1927 to Crane County line.FM 871 from RM 366 to end of state maintenance.FM 872 from FM 871 to end of state maintenance.RM 2355 from FM 516 to SH 115.Spur 65 from Spur 57 to I-20.Spur 247 from SH 115 to Spur 57.FM 3398 from FM 516 to Reeves County line.FM 873 from FM 3398 to FM 516.FM 516 (all 11 miles of it).

Soil temperatures

first_imgGeorgia’s recent warm daytime temperatures have home gardeners itching to dig in the soil and plant summer crops. But University of Georgia experts warn gardeners not to be tempted. Soil temperatures are still far too low for seeds to germinate and transplants to survive.“In Georgia, we may have a warm front come in one day and a cold front a few days later,” said Bob Westerfield, a consumer horticulturist with UGA Cooperative Extension. “It may hit 75 degrees outside, but the air temperature isn’t important when it comes to gardening – the soil temperature is.”Westerfield has been tracking the soil temperature in his research plots on the UGA campus in Griffin, Ga. Last week, he recorded a soil temperature of 48 degrees.“That soil’s not ready for tomatoes. Summer crops need from 60 to 65 degrees.” he said. Green beans can handle temperatures of about 55 degrees, but it is still not quite warm enough for them. If gardeners ignore his advice and seed their gardens, he says the seeds won’t germinate. Gardeners who cannot resist the temptation can still plant cold season crops like asparagus, beets, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, collards, kale, lettuce, mustard, onions, peas, potatoes, radish, spinach and turnips.To track the soil temperatures in your area of the state, Westerfield recommends two different strategies. Buy a soil thermometer or use a meat thermometer to test the soil in your garden plot or rely on UGA’s Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network at temperatures “creep up slowly” and Georgia soils should be ready to sow in seed by early-to-mid April, Westerfield said. “And don’t be swayed by the vegetable transplants lining the garden center shelves,” he said. “Just because plants are in the stores doesn’t mean it’s time to plant them.”For more information on vegetable gardening in Georgia, see the UGA Extension publication, “Vegetable Gardening in Georgia” on the Web site read more
