This 3 bedroom family house is set in 4 acres at the edge of a Lancashire village. The brief required a house that was laid out over 2 storeys but could accommodate inclusive lifetime homes standards for ground floor living, and whilst open plan in layout could retain the function of accommodating distinct rooms. In response, a series of interconnecting living spaces link though disappearing corner sliding doors to create an open plan ground floor, that opens on three sides to outdoor garden ‘rooms’ that capture light at different times of the day.A second storey adds a master bedroom suite with framed views of the hills beyond.

The ‘townside’ gables are expressed in monolithic form, whereas the ‘countryside’ gables are punctuated with large projecting box seat windows overlooking a re-instated orchard with farmland beyond. The house achieves an extremely low carbon footprint, with a timber structure and a highly efficient envelope, supported by a PV array and ground source heat pump to provide for heating and electricity needs with almost no net running costs. Save this picture!© David Millington Photography LtdThe pre-fabricated cross-laminated timber structure arrived on site on one lorry and was erected in three days, meeting the clients requirement to significantly reduce the construction period required to achieve watertightness of the envelope and allow flexibility in the programming of subsequent works. The design required a complicated and committed route through planning due to ‘backland development’ and ‘edge of green belt’ concerns raised by the local authority, but these were satisfactorily overcome through detailed analysis of the site conditions. The project was delivered within 3% of the initial budget.Save this picture!© David Millington Photography LtdProject gallerySee allShow lessHout Exploits Passive Techniques for Bangladesh Office BuildingArchitecture NewsCall for Submissions: Architecture for Wellness – The Space for Body and SoulCall for Submissions Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918994/zinc-house-proctor-and-shaw Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeProctor & ShawOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLancashireUnited KingdomPublished on June 17, 2019Cite: “Zinc House / Proctor & Shaw” 17 Jun 2019.

Queensland continues its Deaf Touch Football domination

first_imgThank you to David Brady for contributing the article content.Related Links2014 Deaf Nationals QLD won all divisions (Men’s, Women’s and Mixed) Mixed Game 1: QLD A 1 defeated by QLD B 3 Game 2: QLD A 6 defeated ACT 2  Game 3: ACT 1 defeated by QLD B 7  Semi Final (play-off): QLD A 6 defeated ACT 4  Grand Final: QLD B 6 defeated QLD A 3 QLD B won the Shield MVP: Jamie-Lee Lewis (QLD)center_img Queensland successfully defended their national deaf titles in all three divisions last weekend, Men’s Women’s and Mixed.  They did this undefeated and simply raised the bar to another level for the other state deaf teams to achieve at the third edition of the National Deaf Touch Football championships at Grass Field Five at the Queensland State Hockey Centre. The Women’s division saw two teams enter, ACT Pirates and Queensland. Both teams were beneficiaries of the recent years’ Active Deaf Kids programs in their states where Touch Football Australia and Queensland Touch Football assisted the sports’ development.  The match saw Queensland too strong, putting 14 touchdowns over the young ACT Women’s team who showed improvement beyond their first year in the game to put two on the scoreboard. Queensland’s Tegan Blanch demonstrated once again why she is one of the best deaf female players by taking out the MVP for the second successive tournament.Queensland’s two teams in the Mixed division were both too strong for the developing ACT Pirates Mixed team, which saw both Queensland A and B team face off in the final. The final showcased the high level of talent of both the Men’s and Women’s games, who were represented on both teams.  Ron Franklin, Tian Chiem, Cameron Miller, Teegan Blanch, Jake Heywood, and the Mixed division’s MVP, Jamie-Lee Lewis demonstrated high skill level that would not be out of place in some of the mainstream National Touch League sides.For the third year in succession in the Men’s division, Queensland dominated the round matches to secure a place in the Grand Final for their chance of a three-peat against the ACT Pirates and New South Wales. The semi finals saw a close encounter between ACT and NSW, with the lead changing hands until the final quarter of the match that saw ACT take the lead by one, then New South Wales scored one more to tie the match. On the last play New South Wales had the opportunity to close out the match but an unforced error ensured the match remained at 6-all. The first ever drop-off was played at National Deaf Championships level, with New South Wales starting off the first set. Three sets in New South Wales made an error that turned over the play to ACT Pirates, who then played two roll balls, with David Brady finding a gap that enabled him to score and secure the win for ACT Pirates.  In the Men’s grand final Queensland saved their best performance to date at Deaf Touch Football Nationals level.  Under the leadership of Cameron Miller, and guidance around the park by Tiuan Chiem and Jamie-Lee Lewis, Queensland dominated the match scoring nine touchdowns over the ACT Pirates who scored two touchdowns.   An elated Queensland’s Cameron Miller summed up the tournament by saying “winning all three divisions is something we were working towards for the last two months…Every training session, we worked on our moves and polished up our defence and it was great to see it in action…The best thing for all of us was to see the young players play the game… They did us proud…The whole team should be congratulated for their ability to support and encourage each other throughout the tournament – never a cross word was uttered… I feel that is why we played so well.”Tournament Director David Brady praised the fields and referees by stating “the State Hockey Centre provided us with a good green grass pitch that allowed for some great action over the two days. Also it is important to recognise the assistance from Queensland Touch Football’s Gary Madders who sourced referees for the two days.”  Brady went further to state “this tournament was made possible by the new MOU between Touch Football Australia and Deaf Sports Australia, which provided the support in the background to make this happen. This is the third edition and it is clear that the MOU provides the opportunity for both the deaf and Touch Football community to work hard with good support to really grow the game for the future, but as David Brady stressed “if you want something to happen, everyone must work together for it.”Third National Deaf Touch Football Championship 2014 Results:  Men’s  Game 1: NSW 3 defeated by QLD 11 Game 2: ACT 4 defeated by QLD 10 Game 3: ACT 10 defeated NSW 7 Semi Final (Play-off): ACT 7 defeated NSW 6 Grand Final: ACT 2 defeated by QLD 9 QLD won the Shield MVP: Jake Harwood (ACT Pirates) Women’s  Game 1: ACT 2 defeated by QLD 14 Game 2: Demo Match (mix up between two Women’s team) cancelled due numbers QLD won the Shield MVP: Tegan Blanch (QLD)last_img read more

10 months agoArsenal and Tottenham make plea for supporters behaviour

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Arsenal and Tottenham make plea for supporters behaviourby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal and Tottenham have issued statements asking their fans to behave during tonight’s EFL Cup quarter-final between the fierce north London rivals.The sides meet in the Premier League on December 2, with Arsenal running away 4-2 winners. But the game was marred by a Spurs fan throwing a banana onto the pitch as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a goal.Tottenham’s statement read: “Local derby matches are always passionate affairs and it is important that supporters play their part on these occasions by getting behind the team in a positive way and making them memorable for the right reasons.”We have enjoyed some unforgettable north London derby encounters over the years and the vast majority of fans have generated incredible atmospheres on these occasions.”However, there were incidents in our most recent Premier League fixture against Arsenal earlier this month where a small number of supporters of both sides behaved unacceptably.”Ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup quarter-final tie we wish to remind supporters travelling to Emirates Stadium that any kind of racist, discriminatory or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated by the club.”As a club that has suffered from abuse in the past from opposition supporters, we wish to make clear that there is absolutely no place for this kind of behaviour in or outside of football.”Arsenal posted on their website: “This fixture always generates an exciting and passionate atmosphere, however, we recently saw incidents where a small minority of fans have behaved unacceptably and unlawfully.”We appeal to both sets of supporters to get behind their team in positive and respectful ways without any discriminatory behaviour.” last_img read more

BC prosecutors file appeal saying longer jail time needed for animal cruelty

first_imgVICTORIA – British Columbia’s Prosecution Service has filed an appeal of sentences handed to three dairy farm employees who abused milk cows.The service says the sentences imposed last month should be increased based on what it believes were errors in law and because of the public interest in the case that involved hidden-camera video taken at Chilliwack Cattle Sales Ltd.It says the alleged errors leading to the B.C. Supreme Court sentences relate to mitigating and aggravating factors, and whether it was correct to equate the duration of the illegal acts with the moral blameworthiness of the offenders.Jamie Visser and Chris Vandyke were given 60 days each in jail, prohibited from having animals in their custody for three years and sentenced to six months’ probation while Travis Keefer was handed a seven-day sentence after they pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges.Video played in court showed a cow being lifted by a chain around its neck using a tractor and other employees repeatedly beating and kicking cows as people nearby cheered and laughed.The dairy farm company and its owners in the Fraser Valley were fined $75,000 each after pleading guilty last year to causing an animal to continue to be in distress.last_img read more

Peace Region mayors meet in Ottawa to discuss LNG with Feds

first_imgOTTAWA, ON – The Peace Region was well represented in Ottawa last week by five local mayors.The Mayors of Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Taylor and Tumbler Ridge had scheduled meetings last week in Ottawa to discuss the importance and value of an LNG export industry in each community. The five local majors were also joined by the mayors of Kitimat and Terrace.Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead said the meetings went extremely well. The Mayors meet with a variety of officials including the Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains, and Finance Minister Bill Morneau. The Mayors focused on driving home the message of how vital the LNG export industry is to the northern communities, BC and Canada as a whole. It is estimated that the proposed LNG Canada facility in Kitimat will produce seven billion annually in GDP. As well, the project would create and sustain sixty-five thousand jobs per year and would provide six billion in taxes to the federal government annually.As well, the Mayors lobbied to have to the tariff regarding fabricated industrial steel components by-passed for the construction of the LNG project. The tariff was created to reduce an influx of cheap fabricated steel produces created by the Asian Market and protect the Canadian producers. Ultimately, a mass amount of large fabricated industrial steel components must be purchased and installed to make the LNG modules. Without the relief of the tariff, the cost of the project will increase by upwards of five hundred million dollars. Bumstead said he was hopeful leaving the meetings. “All of the meetings went very well and we faced support from all members of the government. They all realised how important LNG Canada’s investment actually is and what positive things it could do for the communities it affects and the country as a whole.”A final investment decision is expected in the fall by the four partners of LNG Canada; Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation, and Kogas.last_img read more
