Innovative prefabricated housing presents an eco-conscious retreat from city life. -VMD is a newly launched prefabricated housing system that presents a luxurious alternative for living away from the city while minimizing the environmental impact of a new build. In a timespan of just 99 days, this one- or two-bedroom home, made from environmentally responsible materials, can be ready for permanent immersion in a location of choice, with minimal interference to the landscape. It opens up the opportunities for people looking to invest in a weekend residence without the construction, time, hassle and costs associated with building and maintaining an abode. Save this picture!© Helioz StudioReady to order and customize online, -VMD is the brainchild of leading architects Rodrigo Alegre and Carlos Acosta (founders of renowned Mexico City studio STUDIOROCA, the design firm responsible for -VMD’s stylish interior furnishing). The idea came from the duo undertaking a more conscious approach to its general practise in recent years, with a move toward sustainability and a focus on reducing its ecological footprint.Save this picture!Ground floor plan‘It got us asking, “what would you do with less?”,’ Acosta explains of the concept behind -VMD, and the idea of retreating from noisy, polluted, stressful urban centers in order to appreciate Mexico’s unrivalled natural beauty from a prefabricated house that necessitates minimal effort and attention.Save this picture!© Helioz Studio‘Homes usually require maintenance and involve a lot of expenses,’ says Acosta, pointing to -VMD’s easy lock-up-and-go design. ‘This is what an “escape” is all about – being free of all those hassles of maintaining a second home but still having a weekend getaway where you really can enjoy your time.’ ‘It has all the basic things you need to live comfortably,’ explains Alegre, ‘with luxurious finishes and fittings, all from eco-conscious suppliers.’ The units are technologically driven, with an interior lighting system and video surveillance that can be controlled remotely. Adding to the upmarket appeal is STUDIOROCA’s curation of furniture – all by Mexican designers – including furniture by: Studioroca, Dorica taller, Taller Luum, Casa Quieta, Futon Tanoshi, José Bermúdez Studio, Mughal, Bandido Studio, Mar Villa y UNION-; el arte es por Diego Hernández (DHB). Alegre states that the greatest luxury, however, is the free time such an abode presents. ‘Time to be in nature, write, read, practice sport, meditate… More time for you.’Save this picture!Sections-VMD upholds a visionary ethos of sustainability. Utilizing only the space and materials necessary, it celebrates and respects the environment. Prefabricated in a factory, these housing units, made from robust shipping containers, reduce the amount of resources used and waste produced, while eliminating the ecological impact of a construction site. Eco-conscious products were an integral consideration.Because manufacturing is done by a group of skilled craftsmen in Mexico, houses are constructed with the highest quality standards, taking just over three months from order to delivery, with a week needed for installation on site. The strength and durability of the shipping-container structure allows the units to be placed on any terrain that can provide access to a large trailer and crane, and, as no complex foundations are necessary, minimal building permissions are required, thus eliminating time-consuming construction challenges. “COPY” Architects: Studioroca, Taller Escape Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: Bolon, InSinkErator, Porcelanosa Grupo, Saint-Gobain, Viroc, Arauco, Cappa, Emozioni, Helvex, Novelio Saint Gobain, Plaka Saint-Gobain, StiebelEltron, TriStone, Trimble Navigation CopyAbout this officeTaller EscapeOfficeFollowStudiorocaOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityMexico CityMexicoPublished on November 18, 2019Cite: “VMD Prefabricated House / Taller Escape + Studioroca” [VMD – Vivienda Mínima de Descanso / Taller Escape + Studioroca] 17 Nov 2019.

In a press statement the Ginnie Mae insured investors that:During a lapse in government funding, Ginnie Mae will reduce staffing to essential personnel levels. Importantly, Ginnie Mae will continue to remit timely payment of principal and interest to investors. There will also be no disruption of essential functions like the granting of commitment authority and support for continued issuance of Ginnie Mae-guaranteed Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) and REMICs.Many are looking to the 2013 shutdown for guidance. But the fundamental changes to the industry in the past five years may mean we are in unknown territory. To learn the full impacts of a prolonged shutdown, the 2013 shutdown, which lasted 16 days, can be a guide, however other changes in the market will impact the total cost of the current shutdown.“In the past decade, government involvement in the housing industry has precipitously increased, hastening an even greater dependence on the federal institutions that would be affected by a potential government shutdown,” said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “I call on all congressional stakeholders to stop using the needs of American homeowners as leverage for achieving their policy goals.”The Senate is scheduled to vote at noon today on a resolution that if passed would extend the budget until February 8.

  • NextDecade targets carbon-neutrality at Rio Grande LNG

    first_imgNextDecade is also exploring options to address the remaining emissions to enable Rio Grande LNG to achieve carbon-neutrality NextDecade Targets Carbon-Neutrality at Rio Grande LNG. (Credit: LEEROY Agency from Pixabay) NextDecade has developed proprietary processes using proven technology to reduce carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions at its proposed Rio Grande LNG facility by approximately 90 percent. NextDecade is also exploring options to address the remaining emissions to enable Rio Grande LNG to achieve carbon-neutrality.Throughout the course of NextDecade’s pre-FID development activities, and intensively in recent months, the Company has evaluated multiple technical solutions to ascertain the commercial viability of dramatically reducing CO2e emissions at Rio Grande LNG.Based on these evaluations, NextDecade has determined that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the most feasible technical solution for Rio Grande LNG. The Company believes that the addition of proven CCS technology in conjunction with its proprietary processes could reduce the CO2e emissions of its Rio Grande LNG facility by approximately 90 percent. While NextDecade advances its work in this area, the Company is also exploring options to address the remaining (approximately 10 percent) CO2e emissions.“Natural gas has a critical role to play in the global energy transition to a low-carbon economy, ensuring the security of energy supplies and preserving high quality jobs in the United States and around the world,” said Matt Schatzman, NextDecade’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our work to date confirms that reliable, competitively priced LNG and responsible environmental stewardship are not mutually exclusive. A solution that promises both is indeed eminently feasible with the thoughtful use of existing technologies and the application of our proprietary processes.”NextDecade continues to work on remaining commercial agreements needed to achieve a final investment decision in 2021, enabled by flexible commercial offerings and leadership in environmental and social performance including targeting carbon-neutrality at Rio Grande LNG.

    first_img Share this article View post tag: HMAS View post tag: News by topic View post tag: City Over 2700 Novocastrians took the opportunity to cross the gangway of their City’s namesake ship during a three-day port visit.Families queued up to get a taste of naval life onboard HMAS Newcastle, with the demonstration of main weapons systems, a chance to sit in the Captain’s chair on the bridge and practical firefighting skills a highlight. $2000 was raised through the sale of ship’s memorabilia and a sausage sizzle during the Open Day.During the visit, the ship reconnected with their ship’s charity, presenting a $10,000 cheque to the recently renamed Newcastle Community of Schools – formerly The Hunter Orthopaedic School. Ship’s company visited the school to meet the students, before hosting a hands-on tour of the Adelaide Class Frigate for 55 students, families and staff in a reciprocal visit.Newcastle’s visit coincided with the 70th anniversary of Fort Scratchley firing on a Japanese submarine in World War II. To acknowledge the historical milestone, Newcastle exchanged a gun salute with the coastal fort on entering and exiting harbour, with Fort Scratchley raising the flag hoist ‘Our City, Our Ship’.Reflecting on a successful visit, Commander Anthony Campbell, Commanding Officer Newcastle said “It has been a privilege to return to our namesake city and restore the strong affiliations in this region. The enthusiastic response from the Newcastle community was reflected by the size of crowd queuing for our Open Day. The Ship’s Company are delighted to help the students of Newcastle Community of Schools, knowing that their donations make a real difference to their education.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff , June 15, 2012; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: Navy June 15, 2012 View post tag: Newcastlecenter_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: Visit HMAS Newcastle Visits Namesake City View post tag: Namesake Training & Education Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Newcastle Visits Namesake City last_img read more
