The project involved a small, inter-war semi-detached house which despite the local council’s Heritage B grading, appeared to have very few significant features or attributes. From the outset, this posed challenges to achieving the client’s enthusiastic brief.Save this picture!© Fraser MarsdenThe planning restraints meant that the option of a two level rear extension was not achievable and the client’s brief had to be slightly condensed and adapted yet still attain the functional necessities they required – master bedroom with ensuite and walk in robe, second bedroom, office, bathroom, separate laundry, kitchen with walk in pantry and a spacious open plan living and dining area.Save this picture!© Fraser MarsdenThe 1980’s alteration and addition, undertaken many years ago, were removed and the new 2015 version was introduced. One item which was imperative to the client’s brief was the view to the back garden. With a higher than usual ceiling and double stacking, glazed steel framed sliding doors, an unimpeded view was achieved. It looks like there is nothing beyond the hallway when looking from the entry with these doors open. An internal courtyard provides a peaceful point of interest to the kitchen area as well as enabling cross ventilation to a room which commonly suffers from an inability to accomplish this. The entry and beginning of the new area of the dwelling is unassuming, satisfying the heritage requirements through being recessed from the front facade yet clearly defining the location of the entrance with a new dark burnt ash timber wall. This contrasts the continuation of the existing white cement bagged brickwork finish to the front façade.Save this picture!© Fraser MarsdenThe plan is traditional with rooms accessible from a central corridor leading into the rear dining and living area where the ceiling rakes up to a substantial height. This creates an impressive space in an otherwise modestly sized area complimented by highlight windows providing controlled northern sunlight. The double stacking, full-height doors connect the space to the spotted gum deck and dense, established perimeter landscaping.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe interior finishes draw on the individual textures of the materials employed. The detail is careful and clean but controlled to sit within the budget. The detailing was also very important to the clients, but one of them in particular was very precise and thorough in reviewing and understanding every aspect of the project, an attribute he had acquired from a previous career that required enormous attention to detail. This kept everyone involved on their toes!Save this picture!© Fraser MarsdenSustainable applications included long-lasting and durable materials such as engineered timber flooring, thermally modified timber cladding, the use of zoned hydronic heating and double glazed steel windows and sliding doors. Also, the co-ordination of architectural design and structure favouring timber but at the end of the day, in terms of sustainability, the sensible application of good thermally passive design provides for comfortable living.The clients love the result and we liken it to a house which is business at the front and party at the back!Save this picture!© Fraser MarsdenProject gallerySee allShow lessIBOBI Kindergarten / VMDPESelected Projects2016 National Grant Competition for Emerging Professionals in Landscape ArchitectureOpportunities Share Architects: Jost Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Malvern House / Jost Architects Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783222/malvern-house-jost-architects Clipboard 2015 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783222/malvern-house-jost-architects Clipboard ArchDaily CopyHouses, Extension•Malvern, Australia Photographs:  Fraser Marsden Photographs Year:  Malvern House / Jost ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMalvern House / Jost Architects Bacchus Construction Builder: Save this picture!© Fraser Marsden+ 20 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJost ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionMalvernAustraliaPublished on March 17, 2016Cite: “Malvern House / Jost Architects” 17 Mar 2016.

Michie calls for code of practice on stewardship

first_imgGordon Michie, director of development at Relationship Market, has called on the Institute of Fundraising to develop a code of practice on stewardship which must include a common definition of the term. Without it, Michie is concerned that the practice could ‘wither on the vine’.Michie made the call to delegates to the Institute of Fundraising (Scotland) conference last week at which he launched his White Paper on stewardship. An expert on relationship fundraising, Michie said that the code of practice needs to contain a common definition of stewardship to prevent people “jumping on the bandwagon by offering faux-stewardship of warmed over relationship fundraising and donor care and not the real thing”.His White Paper, ‘Pretenders to the Steward Throne’, identifies nine barriers that could prevent stewardship, a concept which originated in America, being taken up by fundraisers in the UK.

Or are we even talking about the difference between stewardship of an individual or stewardship of the whole pool of donors and potential donors?“None of these questions has even been addressed let alone answered and the result is that many people are throwing about this new buzzword without having any real idea of what it means.“Without this common definition of stewardship – which I would like to see the Institute of Fundraising arrive at through a consultation into a new code of practice – I fear that genuine stewardship will wither on the vine, while ‘stewardship’ becomes just another name for donor care and relationship fundraising.”Michie adds that, without this definition, what is being touted as stewardship is little more than “warmed over relationship fundraising”. The nine barriers to stewardship identified in ‘Pretenders to the Steward Throne’ are:1. What does stewardship actually mean?2. British- or American-style stewardship?3. There is no common understanding of stewardship in a fundraising context4. Bandwagon jumping5. Low standards of donor care could undermine stewardship6. Measurement – KPIs and benchmarks are needed to assess the impact of stewardship7. Is stewardship a means or an end?8. Training/CPD issues9. Lack of will for stewardship to succeedIn Michie’s view, stewardship occupies a ‘third level’, sitting above donor care (first level) and relationship fundraising (second level). Under ‘Third Level Stewardship’ a fundraiser would “take responsibility for a donor’s philanthropy”.Michie offers a vision of what this might look like in practice. “The ultimate goal of third level stewardship is to have a donor say to a major donor and/or fundraising steward: ‘You know what types of project I want to support, you know how I want to be kept informed, you know what kind of outcomes I expect to achieve, here’s my £500,000, I trust you, use this as you see fit’.”In the paper he cites the example of NSPCC as the first charity in the country to set up a stewardship department. Tim Hunter, deputy director of fundraising at NSPCC, comments on this new department’s role: “It is their job to make sure all donors are getting thanked, acknowledged and the right level of feedback about what their donation has made possible”, he said.“This person, or in the NSPCC’s case, this team, doesn’t have a fundraising target. Instead they work alongside fundraisers to make sure the donor experience is as good as it can possibly be by making them feel that their gift has been recognised and valued.”Michie, however, argues that this is really “merely the enforcement of relationship fundraising.” True, third level stewardship involves much more. Indeed, he acknowledges that Ken Burnett summed up this ideal well in his 1992 book ‘Relationship Fundraising’: “Relationship Fundraising, Burnett said: “Think of your fundraising role as that of a double agent, providing a service to two different markets – the donor and the cause.”www.relationshipmarketing.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tagged with: Digital Funding Strategic consultancy I.G Advisors, along with sister company Lightful, Unbound Philanthropy and other leaders in the racial justice sector are seeking nonprofits doing work with communities of colour in the UK to fill in a survey on their experiences of digital fundraising and race. The survey can be accessed here. The survey is to help build a better understanding of how these organisations currently use digital for fundraising, and the challenges faced when fundraising online, and in communicating their work to audiences.  “I.G.’s agenda is to use our platform (our brand, podcast, blog, and client network) in the sector to hold funders accountable for their ongoing investments in this space, provide learning that goes beyond standard fundraising advice to pragmatically unpick and address the racial dynamics at play in digital fundraising. We know it’s not as simple as ‘organisations don’t have the skills or capacity’, and want to disrupt the way the sector understands, talks about, and addresses the challenges.”center_img In its project summary, I.G Advisors says: Melanie May | 13 May 2021 | News Nonprofits sought for survey on digital fundraising & race  1,267 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 “We know the demand for funding is greater than the supply, and that often digital fundraising proves to be too challenging, or ineffective, for many organisations or projects focussed on race.

And Trulia’s information reveals that it is important to remember that agents have access to resources, including home stagers, lenders, home inspectors and legal help. Agents also know what marketing approach works in a market, and according to Trulia, “perhaps even more importantly, agents know that a listed price is just a starting point.”To view all of Trulia’s data, click here.

Law firm to tighten its equality policies after ruling

A law firm found guilty of discriminating against an Asian employee says itis doubling its efforts to ensure staff adhere to equal opportunities policies.London Central employment tribunal held that Allen & Overy, one of theUK’s biggest law firms, victimised intranet project manager Shazia Wahab, whenthe firm’s HR manager, Jo Booth, told her that bringing a discrimination claimagainst the firm would be “professional suicide”. Allen & Overy spokesman, Iain Rodgers, said the firm’s partners hadissued a memo to all staff pledging their “utter commitment” to theirpolicy of respect and inclusion for all employees. “The tribunal turned down 10 other complaints by Wahab, includingclaims of sexual, racial and employment-status discrimination,” he said.”It found the firm was only guilty in ‘one isolated and discreet respect’.Allen & Overy has fallen foul of a slip of the tongue.” Wahab’s solicitor, Lawrence Davies, said the case blew the lid ondiscrimination in the ‘magic circle’ of London firms, and hoped other victimswould now have the courage to come forward. However, Fraser Younson, head of employment law at McDermott, Will andEmery, said there would be no flood of claims, as firms tend to settle beforereaching tribunals in an effort to save their reputations. www.allenovery.com Law firm to tighten its equality policies after rulingOn 7 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img read more

Former JetBlue exec lists Silicon Valley compound for $49M

first_img Tags Former JetBlue Chairman Joel Peterson and his 5 house compound. (Getty, Arthur Sharif & Associates) Former JetBlue Chairman Joel Peterson has listed his 11-acre compound in the affluent Silicon Valley suburb of Woodside.Peterson is asking — take a breath — $49 million.But the property does come with five separate houses. Think of the Airbnb potential.The compound — and that is the appropriate term here — features a rebuilt Craftsman-style home designed by noted architect Bernard Maybeck, the Wall Street Journal reported. It includes a second main home, three guest houses, a tennis pavilion and court, garages, a soccer field, a pool and a barn.Peterson began assembling the property in the early 2000s, starting with the parcel next to the 6,000-square-foot, Maybeck-designed home. He bought that plot and a neighboring one over the next few years.The roughly 100-year-old Maybeck house was in a state of disrepair when Peterson hired a local architect to rebuild it, starting with a central pavilion. They also added a tower that Maybeck designed but never included in the original house.Peterson also renovated a 5,100-square-foot ranch house and demolished another home at the site. The former executive, who lives mainly in Salt Lake City, used the compound when teaching at Stanford University. He said that the pandemic factored into his decision to sell.“I haven’t been out there now for over a year. We’re not able to gather there as much,” he told the newspaper.The Bay Area housing market has more than recovered since the pandemic-spurred downturn. As of October, existing-home prices in eight Bay Area counties were up 15 percent year-over-year, according to the Mercury News.The opposite could be said of San Francisco proper’s rental and office markets.[WSJ] — Dennis Lynch Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Bay AreaSan FranciscoSilicon Valley Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Relating the occurrence of crevasses to surface strain rates

first_imgThe presence of crevasses on the surface of ice masses indicates that a fracture criterion has been met. Understanding how crevasses form will provide information about the stress and strain-rate fields in the ice. This study derives a relationship between measurements of strain rate and observations of crevassing on the surface of ice masses. A literature search yielded 17 polar and alpine locations where strain rates had been measured and crevassing recorded. By plotting strain rates (converted to stresses using a creep law) using axes representing the surface-parallel principal stresses, failure envelopes were derived by enclosing measurements where surface crevassing was absent. The derived failure envelopes were found to conform well to theoretical ones predicted by the Coulomb and the maximum octahedral shear stress (von Mises) theories of failure. The derived failure envelopes were scaled by the tensile strength, which was found to vary from 90 to 320 kPa. There was no systematic variation of tensile strength with either temperature at 10 m depth or the method used to locate the crevasses. The observed variation in tensile strength could result from variations in ice properties (e.g. crystal size, impurity content or density) or could be related to uncertainty in the constitutive relation. Creep flow and fracture share a very similar temperature dependence, suggesting similar crystal-scale processes are responsible for both. The observed relationship will provide a supplementary tool with which to verify and test models of ice dynamics against remotely sensed imagery. The study also indicates that a temperature rise of a few degrees throughout the ice column will not result directly in any increase in calving rates from the large Antarctic ice shelves such as the Filchner–Ronne or Ross Ice Shelves.last_img read more

A review of unmanned vehicles for the detection and monitoring of marine fauna

first_imgRecent technology developments have turned present-day unmanned systems into realistic alternatives to traditional marine animal survey methods. Benefits include longer survey durations, improved mission safety, mission repeatability, and reduced operational costs. We review the present status of unmanned vehicles suitable for marine animal monitoring conducted in relation to industrial offshore activities, highlighting which systems are suitable for three main monitoring types: population, mitigation, and focal animal monitoring. We describe the technical requirements for each of these monitoring types and discuss the operational aspects. The selection of a specific sensor/platform combination depends critically on the target species and its behaviour. The technical specifications of unmanned platforms and sensors also need to be selected based on the surrounding conditions of a particular offshore project, such as the area of interest, the survey requirements and operational constraints.last_img read more
