Passive House Hradec Králové / Echorost Architekti

first_img Photographs 2011 CopySave this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiText description provided by the architects. The house was designed for the old couple, whose main demands were low maintenance/operation costs and distribution of main rooms to the ground floor. Save this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiIt was the specific shape of the plot which set a boundary of the house and together with structural constraints also defined a resulting geometry of the house. The geometry was based on a consistent extrusion of the house boundary. The proposal took into account also an option that clients could buy up the neighbouring plots. This came true during the construction of the house. The design of the house was optimized for the lowest energy demand while keeping other design demands (e.g. possibility to use the first floor as a second flat). Therefore the house met the passive house criteria and among else qualified for the appropriate government subsidy. Save this picture!Courtesy of Echorost ArchitektiThe main living areas are oriented towards the sun. The proposed system of exterior blinds helps to eliminate a summer overheating of the house while meeting the desired daylight levels. Due to the fact that certain aspects of the assignment were unclear (budget, sizes of rooms) and because of the necessity to optimize the energy demand of the house it was decided to use three-dimensional parametric model. This associative model reacted in real time on input parameters (e.g. boundary of the house, floor height, wall thickness etc.) and modified the geometry accordingly. Furthermore it was possible to simulate the behaviour of the house at any time and therefore optimize the house for the lowest energy demand, duration of the insolation or quality of the daylight. This strategy required enhanced time investment in the beginning but this investment was more than paid off in next phases of the project due to the constant change of the design.

HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 29, 2013 SHARE Facebook Twitter A questionable undercover video from a Minnesota farm released today by Mercy for Animals, a front group for the Humane Society of the United States, is the latest attack against America’s hog farmers. In advance of a press conference that is expected to be full of misinformation, it is important to know the facts: An independent veterinarian, who was taken by law enforcement to the Pipestone facility shown in the video, determined that there were no signs of inhumane treatment or violations of good production standards. Therefore, no charges were filed.But that wasn’t good enough for this Pipestone farm. Its care for animals is so firmly rooted in its commitment to industry best practices that it did something consistent with its proactive approach to continuous improvement – it brought in a third party to investigate. Though the MFA-produced undercover video was unfortunately never made available to Pipestone, the farm’s investigation determined that the employee involved had not been following animal care protocols, and he was immediately fired.America’s pork producers are primarily family farmers who care about the animals they raise and the food they produce for the American consumer. It is the same food they produce for their own families. They don’t need questionable undercover videos produced by organizations with political agendas to remind them of their commitment to animal care.American farmers have the trust of the American people and don’t deserve the onslaught they face from groups such as the Humane Society of the United States that have deep pockets from deceptive fundraising practices.This latest attack by HSUS and MFA clearly is the result of the pressure they’re feeling after a year of significant state and federal legislative losses. HSUS has spent significant amounts of its donors’ money on futile legislative efforts and on a lawsuit that had nothing to do with animal welfare was dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge. HSUS donors, especially the many whose priorities are the protection of companion animals, deserve better than that.

GFA, PLB signs up to Road Safety campaign

first_imgThe Ghana Football Association and the Premier League Board as part of their social responsibility will observe Remembrance Day for victims of road traffic crashes.Football is been used to raise awareness and positively affect the lives of people about ensuring road safety which remains a developmental concern.The third Sunday in November every year has been adopted by the United Nations to acknowledge victims of road traffic crashes and their family as the World Remembrance Day for Road Traffic Crash Victims.On this occasion, Ghana’s National Road Safety Commission – NRSC and the PLB wish to join several families and football fans to commiserate the deaths and injuries to their relatives while cautioning football fans across the country in or out of the stands to embrace best road use practices that will prevent the occurrences of crashes and their resultant casualties at all times.Speaking about the importance of Remembrance Sunday, Welbeck Abra Appiah, Chairman of the Premier League Board said: “Road safety affects everybody including football teams and fans. We are trusting that this gesture will revive our consciousness as football fans and road users generally for the public good.”A minutes silence will be observed ahead of the Glo Premier League match between rivals Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday November 18, 2012. Ing. Noble John Appiah of the NRSC added: “This collaboration goes to emphasize the fact that road safety is a shared responsibility. It is our expectation that this observation will renew the responsibility of football teams and their supporters to embrace the safety culture required to deliver road safety especially before and after football matches.”Road traffic crashes account for an average of 2000 deaths and 14,000 injuries every year with almost 60% of crash victims falling within the productive age bracket of 18-55 leading to an economic loss of 1.6% of our GDP translating into US$ 418million in 2009 alone.last_img read more
