The former building – originally built in 1951 – had been extended, converted and renovated several times over the past years. As a consequence, it presented itself as an accumulation of heterogeneous rooms and styles.Save this picture!First FloorIn discussions with the new owner we developed the idea of reducing the building to both its original size and primary qualities. The dismantling of all the old additional elements called for a controlled addition of new expansions. These new volumes were clustered at the western side of the plot, touching the old building only in one place. While the old building had been freed from any disturbing elements and thus restored to its classic elegance, the new cubes present a composition of simple and plastically reduced volumes. The cubes, according to their different position, spacing and size, create fascinating passageway- and patio-situations with the old building.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGTo the south-western side of the plot we removed the former winter garden. In its place we constructed a generous, open garden pavilion which works well as mediating element between old building, pool area and the garden.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessHealthcare Centre in Son Servera / PMMTSelected ProjectsTunnel Monitoring Complex Hausmannstaetten / Dietger Wissounig ArchitektenSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHaberstroh SchneiderOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBinningenFG+SGRenovationWoodRefurbishmentHousesSwitzerlandPublished on November 22, 2013Cite: “Haus von Arx / Haberstroh Schneider” 22 Nov 2013.

Plenty of Demand for 2014 Corn Crop

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 23, 2014 Previous articleIndiana Soybean Innovations Part of Senate ShowcaseNext articleState Fair Accepting Donations for Celebration of Champions Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Plenty of Demand for 2014 Corn Crop Plenty of Demand for 2014 Corn Crop  Plenty of Demand for 2014 Corn CropMike SilverThe market is focused on the expected supply of corn for 2014; but, with a large crop, there will likely be plenty of demand. The bears have been in control of the market, focusing on weather and crop conditions. But Mike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, says the demand side has been steady and strong.  In the first week of June, we had the highest level of ethanol corn usage since December of 2011. We are averaging 972,000 barrels a day, a historic new high, Silver stated, “Right now our accumulated pace has us using 5.090 billion bushels of corn to produce ethanol,  slightly above the most recent USDA projection of 5.050 billion.” He added, if we can sustain this level of production, the corn usage number will come in at what had been forecast by USDA.  Silver told HAT that livestock and export demand, while not setting records, are strong, “When you combine ethanol demand with export sales and livestock usage, we will have good demand for this large corn crop.”While heavy rains pounded parts of the Western Corn Belt last week and parts of Indiana saw flooding, the condition of the corn crop was not impacted much, according to the USDA crop update released on Monday.  The USDA estimated corn conditions at 74% of the crop rated “Good” or “Excellent”, a 2% decrease from the previous week and a 9% increase from last year. The report falls on the high side of analyst estimates, who expected somewhere between 71-74%. Twenty-one percent was considered “Fair” up 1 % from last week, while only 5% was considered “Poor” or “Very Poor.” While crops generally look good, Silver warns producers to take precautions, “There is still a lot that can happen before harvest, and producers need to be taking precautions.  Look at your position, get some offers in above the market.”  SHARElast_img read more

Damen Dredge Pump Put to Use in South Africa

first_imgOn the Western coast of South Africa, high grade heavy mineral sediment layers are found on the seashores.Located just below a layer of fairly standard quartz sand, this heavy mineral sand can be mined. The material, which is also called HMS, has a relatively high specific gravity of 2.8T.m3 in situ.Until recently, the mining operations in the surf zone were done conventionally using excavators and trucks. Yet they have to be relocated every time the tide comes in.The DOP250 however can mine continuously when attached to an amphibious excavator. The DOP250 mines heavy mineral sand at a max dredging depth of 10 m. The heavy sand mixture is pumped in a concentration up to 25% over a distance of 250 m over a cliff of 15 m in height.On shore the processing plant separates the valuable minerals from the quartz sand and stones.last_img read more
