A medium density housing development on a small 564 sq.m Mount Victoria site in central Wellington, New Zealand. There are seven single-level apartments and one two-level apartment, spread over three stories, with a clock tower defining the street corner. The complex sits over a below grade carpark with light timber framing clad in corrugated iron and plastered concrete panels. These provide a variety of textures that help relate the building to its context.Save this picture!© Jeff BrassThe building is arranged around a north facing open courtyard containing a mixture of public and private spaces at ground level. Each apartment connects visually to the street and this common space. Living and outdoor spaces are private and light filled with varieties of views. The indoor-outdoor connections are expressed as projections added to the façade, which give comfort and privacy to the inhabitants and allow the building to express itself to the street.Save this picture!© Jeff BrassSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jeff BrassThe mixture of apartment sizes and their relationships enable the development to read more as a village than a housing complex, allowing a connection with the surrounding Mount Victoria neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Jeff BrassProject gallerySee allShow lessTHE 25 / D.A ArchitectesSelected ProjectsJA101: Architecture – Era – Discourse, JA 60th AnniversaryPublicationsProject locationAddress:Mount Victoria, Wellington, New ZealandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Green Mountain Power Named a Finalist for Edison Electric Institute’s Award

first_imgNoting significant changes in corporate culture and work processes that ultimately helped lead the company to meet or exceed all customer service standards, the Edison Electric Institute today named Green Mountain Power Corporation as a finalist for the power sector’s highest honor, the Edison Award.Given annually by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the prestigious award honors the U.S. shareholder-owned and international members for outstanding contributions and advancement of the industry. A committee of national industry trade publication editors and a panel of past and current EEI chairmen select the finalists and ultimate winners. This year’s award, the 45th, will be announced June 8 at EEI’s annual convention in Orlando, Fla.”These companies embody the spirit of innovation that forms the cornerstone of our industry,” said EEI President Thomas R. Kuhn in announcing the finalists. “The strong, bold leadership they exhibit today, coupled with the ability to chart a course into tomorrow, are what set them apart. In Green Mountain Power’s case, it was the transformation of the corporate culture and work processes that resulted in it being named a finalist.”Green Mountain set out on a mission to transform itself into a company characterized by financial strength, zealous concentration on customer service, and investor and regulatory confidence. Over the past several years, the company analyzed each position and its benefit to customers. This effort resulted in a radically modified workforce and work processes, with the company now serving 460 customers per employee compared with the national average of 337.This major shift in the company’ s corporate culture included a new work environment that facilitates communication and teamwork, and pushes down responsibility and decision-making. Private offices are non-existent, and all employees—including senior executives—work in cubicles or open spaces of the same size.In addition, Green Mountain Power awarded all permanent employees stock options, which has increased employee interest in the financial health of the company. The financial performance of the company has improved to where Business Week ranked them 25th among The Small-Cap Top 50 in its national index of small-cap companies.Perhaps most important, Green Mountain Power meets or exceeds all customer service standards, has reduced outages to below the national median, and offers a money-back service guarantee.The other U.S. finalists for the 2004 Edison Award are MidAmerican Energy, Public Service Enterprise Group and We Energies.last_img read more

GVC Holdings confident of delivering its 2018 targets & objectives

first_img Submit StumbleUpon Share Share Publishing its Q3 2018 trading update (period ending 30 September), FTSE100 betting group GVC Holdings details continued corporate growth and progress on its core strategic objectives.The enlarged FTSE firm continues its strong digital momentum, recording +28% period NGR increase, detailing growth across all its major operating territories.Boosted by the closing stages of World Cup Russia 2018, GVC sports brands NGR grew 31%, with the company maintaining double-digit growth for its acquired Ladbrokes (+24%) and Coral UK (+29%) digital properties.Furthermore, a strengthened digital framework has helped GVC Casino/Games brands achieve 19% NGR increase, driven by ‘strong levels of first-time depositors’.Despite its digital growth, GVC cannot escape tougher UK retail operating conditions, with the company reporting a like-for-like 2% NGR decline. Nevertheless, the firm’s UK retail woes are offset by +24% increase in its European retail assets, as GVC reports strong growth across its Italian assets.GVC Holdings Q3 2018 Trading UpdateMoving forward, GVC governance highlights significant future prospects for the operator, having secured its US joint-venture partnership with MGM Resorts during the Q3 trading.GVC will now act as technology and operations lead for MGM Resorts, the US’ biggest land-based casino operator, gaining a significant foothold within the liberalised US sports betting market. The strategic partnership will see GVC develop and launch exclusive platform and digital properties through the ‘playMGM’ brand.Commenting on the Trading update, GVC Holdings Group CEO Kenneth Alexander said:“The Group’s performance in the quarter was very pleasing with momentum continuing across the Online and European Retail divisions. As highlighted in our H1 results, we will look to consolidate our position in markets where we are taking market share through the reinvestment of excess returns, and the board is confident in its full-year expectations.“We believe our sports-betting joint venture with MGM is best placed to be the market leader in the US and we have taken the first steps on that journey with the soft-launch of our sports-betting app in New Jersey. We have also recently announced a series of CSR measures including a multi-million-pound commitment to responsible gambling initiatives and a call for a pre-watershed ban of TV advertising in the UK around football and other live sports.“The industry continues to evolve and whilst there are challenges there are also many exciting opportunities. Through our proprietary technology, a portfolio of brands, leading product and talent, GVC is well placed to continue to deliver shareholder value.”last_img read more
