Wilmington, DE, 2018-Feb-21 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Peggy Del Fabbro, CEO of M. Davis & Sons, announced that it has acquired a Messer Cutting Systems Evolution® Plasma Cutting Table. The revolutionary new equipment enables M. Davis and Sons fabrication specialists to produce an enhanced level of smooth edge quality, precision hole cutting, and it keeps the surrounding work area smoke free.

“We are excited to offer the new equipment to advance the customer’s project schedule,” said John Bonk, M. Davis and Sons’ Vice-President of Operations.

The new state-of-the-art plasma cutting equipment by Messer Cutting Systems is software controlled and allows M.

The plasma cutting table allows materials to be cut run in measurements from 1.5” for carbon steel to 1-inch for stainless steel and to achieve high-quality edges. Metal plates are aligned to the torch via a camera for extreme accuracy.

One of the most innovative features of the equipment is its smoke-free design. It’s equipped with exhaust dampers that open and close as the welding torch moves for a safer work environment. The Messer Slagger component automatically cleans the machine base with pusher blades for cleaning performed in just minutes for minimal downtime.

The plasma cutting equipment represents the next evolution for steel fabrication and industrial construction. An innovative approach to construction and fabrication enables the company to work faster and produce the highest quality results while providing significant time savings for any project.

JAPANESE RENTAL HOUSING MANAGEMENT COMPANY BUYS WALDORF SERVICED APARTMENTS

Sydney, Australia, 2017-Feb-02 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Daiwa Living Management Co. Ltd (DLM), one of the largest Rental Housing management companies together with Cosmos Initia Co, Ltd (CI), a Residential Developer in Japan, have jointly purchased 75% of Waldorf Australia and New Zealand Group.

Waldorf is a privately owned company which commenced operations in Sydney in 1982. Since then, the business has grown to more than 1,500 apartments and operates in Sydney, Central Coast, Canberra, Leura, Geraldton, Perth and Auckland.

Waldorf is currently one of the largest Serviced Apartment operators in Australasia. DLM manages approximately 500,000 rental housing properties across Japan.

The Serviced Apartment business has undergone significant transformation in Australasia in recent years with almost all leading operators entering into ‘Joint Ventures’ with international operators.

DLM and CI are subsidiary companies of Daiwa House Industry Co. Ltd, the largest publically listed Construction and Development Company in Japan.

“The sale to DLM Group will bring forward our plans to further improve services and allow the business to expand significantly in the coming years.” said the Waldorf Group founding Director and CEO, Avi Rubinstein.

DLM has been seeking an opportunity to enter the Australasian market and is excited about the Waldorf acquisition. Waldorf is a well-established and successful business which is ‘scalable’ and presents DLM with an ideal platform to grow across many sub markets in both Australia and New Zealand.

Richman Signature Properties and Laurel & Wolf Unveil 2017 Trends for Apartment Interior Design

Designed Model Homes at Aurora in Tampa and Parc at White Rock in Dallas Offer Glimpse Into Trends, Including Individualism, Simplicity, Refuge From Tech.

Greenwich, CT, USA — Today’s millennials and Gen Xers are forgoing home ownership and flocking toward apartment rentals in record numbers. And while they’re doing so by choice to maintain their flexible lifestyles in live-work-play environments, they are not willing to sacrifice on style. Historically, apartment communities have shied away from allowing residents to individualize their apartments through painting and other customizations, but Richman Signature Properties (http://www.richmansignature.com), a leader in luxury rental communities with properties throughout the U.S., is doing just the opposite. In fact, the company has teamed up with leading online interior design service Laurel & Wolf (http://www.laurelandwolf.com) to create chic interior design options curated specifically for this demographic.

“We’ve worked with Laurel & Wolf designers to uncover the top trends for apartments that feel like forever homes. It’s all part of our mission to reimagine what rental living looks like for our residents. A major differentiator of our communities is the design flexibility each property offers, not typically found in other apartment communities that have stringent rules for decorating,” said Kristen Gucwa, vice president of marketing for Richman Signature Properties. “Our partnership with Laurel & Wolf is a testament to our commitment to give our residents the opportunity to express individuality through on trend, in demand home design.”

Beyond the design insights, Richman Signature Properties is making the stylish décor options a reality for its residents. Upon moving into one of its luxury communities, residents at all Richman Signature Properties may choose to Live Prettier with a complimentary Laurel & Wolf Signature Design package (http://www.laurelandwolf.com/pricing), customized to complement residents’ individual tastes, lifestyle and budget. The service connects residents to work one-on-one with a designer entirely online.

To demonstrate the trends and showcase to future residents the stylish possibilities for their new home, Laurel & Wolf has created an entirely furnished look for Richman Signature Properties’ newly completed model homes at Aurora in Downtown Tampa and Parc at White Rock in Dallas.

Following are the top apartment interior design trends for 2017 from Richman Signature Properties and Laurel & Wolf, which can be implemented into any apartment home that needs a refresh.

A Shift in Bedroom Space
With an increase in the use of technology and the bustle of everyday life, renters are feeling the need to make bedrooms a sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Millennials and Gen Xers are moving their home offices and TVs out of the bedroom, and shifting to calming colors and monochromatic palettes. Additionally, articulating sconces are taking the place of traditional table lamps in the bedroom. They offer a more direct source of light, creating more peace in the space, and can be ideal for young professionals and couples with differing bed times.

Maximizing Style with Curated Colors
Millennial and Gen X renters are taking a page out of the history books and looking toward more classical color palettes for their homes. This year, we’ll see a rise in popularity of pairing rich pigmented tones in dusty blues and grays with hunter green and wheat accents. Warm, calming colors will be complemented by natural textures to further tie to the need for home sanctuary.

Simplicity and Originality is a Must
When it comes to millennial renters, the big trend is ‘less is more.’ There’s a desire to streamline spaces – to be uncluttered and less fussy than traditional design. For the pieces they do choose, millennials are open to spending a little more money if it makes their room stand out, especially from their friends.

In addition to simplicity, there is a renewed interest in original furniture pieces and mixing design styles to create a one-of-a-kind, simple yet eclectic look. Driven by the desire to be unique, we can expect millennials to purchase more antiques, vintage and one-off pieces over the mass-produced furniture makers.

Going Green (In Moderation)
Recently, Pantone released its 2017 color of the year: Greenery. Greenery is bright, lush and ideal for residents who want to bring that outdoor feel into their homes. While renters may feel more comfortable sticking with neutrals for wall colors, we’ll see a rise in modern takes on plants, e.g., lush terrariums to add a splash of greenery in the home, similar to the living room model found in Richman Signature Properties’ Parc at White Rock in Dallas.

“Today, millennials desire more than just a space to call home, they want to live in a place that showcases their unique tastes and draws upon their life experiences,” said Leura Fine, CEO and founder of Laurel & Wolf. “So, through our partnership with Richman Signature Properties, we are proud to be able to provide residents the opportunity to create a space that truly reflects their wants and needs – a place that celebrates their individual style.”

In addition to the online interior designers, Richman Signature Properties’ collaboration with Laurel & Wolf provides residents with expert insights on interior design trends and a collection of on-trend paint colors selected exclusively for Richman Signature Properties’ to help residents create one-of-a-kind living spaces.

Parc at White Rock in Dallas and Aurora in Tampa are part of the fast-growing upscale collection of Richman Signature Properties including The Sedona, Grady Square, and The Epic at Gateway Centre in Florida’s Greater Tampa Bay area, and Azura, Palm Ranch and Portico in South Florida. Additional upcoming communities include Infinity LoHi in Denver, Library Tower and F11 in San Diego, Sage at Cerritos in the Los Angeles area and Biscayne 27 in Miami.

Rosendin Electric Receives 2016 DBIA Project/Team Award for Los Angeles Valley College Monarch Center Project

Excellence Award in Educational Facility Category Presented for Creative Design-Build Collaboration and Expediting Solutions in the Field.

La Palma, CA, USA — Rosendin Electric (http://www.rosendin.com), one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, has received a 2016 Project/Team Award from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) for its contribution to the construction of the Los Angeles Valley College Monarch Center. The Monarch Center was one of three projects selected in the Educational Facilities category. Earlier this year, the Monarch Center project also received an Electrical Excellence Award from the National Electrical Contractors’ Association (NECA).

DBIA is the only organization in the United States dedicated to defining, teaching, and promoting best practices for construction design-build. To be considered for an award, a project must demonstrate the application of DBIA-defined design-build best practices, including bringing together team members during the proposal process, as well as close coordination from the design development stage through field construction and project completion.

The Monarch Center project represents a successful collaborative design-build project that offered Los Angeles Valley College the best design and value based on criteria, including mitigating any additional costs with expedited design-build solutions to address issues encountered in the field. Part of the challenge was completing the project without disrupting daily operations on the Los Angeles Valley College campus. The completed structure has a unique architectural design and houses the College’s bookstore, cafeteria, health services center, and other faculty and student facilities. The project was completed in 27 months at a cost of $46,661,760.

“The completed Monarch Center has an innovative design and interesting lighting and design features, such as roof lighting and a reflective canopy that eliminates the need for ground lighting,” said Dan Domenici, Project Manager for Rosendin Electric. “By working closely with the lead contractor, McCarthy Building Companies, and other project partners from the outset, we were able to overcome some unexpected challenges. Receiving recognition from the DBIA is something the entire design-build team can be proud of.”

Profiles of the winning 2016 design-build projects are available on the DBIA web site. Additional innovative design-build construction projects spanning education, transportation, technology, data centers, healthcare, and other industries are available on the Rosendin Electric web site, http://www.rosendin.com.

The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Baton Rouge Based Roof Crafters Launches New CRM Software For Clients

CRM Product Launch from Roof Crafters

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.

baton-rouge-roofing-contractors

As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.

Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.

Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.

Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.

As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”

Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.
