Building Materials

Posted on July 31, 2016 in News

On Mount Pentelikon, north-east of Athens, was extracted milky-white marble with streaked greenish mica. Of it were built the famous Parthenon, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and many other monuments of Greek art. With the passage of time due to an increase in iron content pentelikonsky marble acquires the noble golden-brown hue. Of white marble, but is not produced in Greece and in Makorane, a village near the Indian city of Jaipur, built the famous monument of love, the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his his wife – the mausoleum of the Taj Mahal. Built in the xvii century, he still stands on the banks of the river Yamuna, hitting its perfection and monumentality. The special effect of the complex of the Taj Mahal gives a kind of polished stone, reflecting changes in the flow of light: morning, afternoon, evening, this masterpiece of architecture looks different. Especially beautiful in the night, by moonlight.

In addition to the white marble for the construction of the mausoleum were used and other breeds natural stone from around the world: the red sandstone of Fatehpur – Sikri, hrizalit from Egypt and even malachite mined in the Urals. Marble has become an indispensable material in the time of the Renaissance: the great sculptors embodied in it their creative ideas and ideas. From this natural stone sculptures carved his great Italian master Michelangelo. Of the marble slabs of Carrara by instrument artist born amazing and perfect statue groups of sculptures and bas-reliefs. Marble staircase with a handrail and balusters fine work adorned the great palaces and temples, and beautiful benches, fountains and vases are an integral part of the gardens and parks.


Real Estate Assessments Posted on July 23, 2016 in News

A customer who has a degree in Fine Arts want to leave his successful career in advertising and commercial real estate development. He had already enrolled in a top notch MBA program to learn more about the field. Also had found work in a bank doing real estate assessments. With one more year to go in the MBA program that came to me to work on creating a plan to become a real estate developer. It is not unusual for someone to study something in college, try it for a while and then decide that there is another field that is more attractive. This dramatic shift, however, brought all sorts of fears for my client. His first concern was that potential employers would look at his resume and I see nothing in it to indicate who had the necessary skills to his new career. I was not sure he really knew exactly what a career in real estate development involves, or even if it was the right decision for himself.

Finally, I was worried because all contacts were in advertising. These could be easily answered by someone already in the field. Where can you find some names and one in? A place that many of my clients overlooked when looking to make new connections is the office of alumnae of the university. Most alumni really want to be helpful to fellow students. My client could easily make use of the office of the students in their current business school.

Real Estate Professionals

Who to contact? In a large well-known agency with a name promoted where possible all work is delivered on a stream or a little unknown, in which customers are not very many, and you will be pleased, as the nearest person, and hence the approach will be an individual? Large agencies cultivated the view that they are working alone professionals, and why are they so big and famous. It is true part. From personal experience I know that a large agency – this is not a guarantee of professionalism. I've seen complete idiots working in the vast real estate holdings and professionals of the highest category of provincial agencies, consisting of 3 persons. Choosing the agency by name or size, you play the lottery – lucky – no luck. It is best to use the recommendations. Socialize with acquaintances, friends, friends Friends, colleagues, surely someone has recently experienced with realtors, and can someone recommend. Communicate with employees of the bank, where the plan to take the credit – they let you prompt.

After all, they cook and to conduct your transaction. And how will work a realtor, depends how quickly and easily pass the entire process of buying an apartment and a loan. Therefore, they are primarily interested in a good recommendation. Ask to you are advised not to agency, and the individual. Version of the third – private realtors (estate agents). He walks a lot of rumors and stories about the private (black) brokers who "throw" their clients. But the overwhelming majority – it's only rumors, often spread by real estate agencies.

Boilers – installations, which heats the working fluid (usually water) for heating or steam supply. They are located in one technical area and connect with consumers by heating and / or steam. The basic unit of the facility is steam, Fire-tube and / or hot water boilers. Boiler rooms are divided by the process allocated by heat (hot water, steam, the superheated water thermo), by purpose (heating, process), by type of fuel used (gas, diesel, gas diesel, oil, gas, fuel oil, solid fuel), the Options (the block-modular roof, fixed, attached, built-in). The goal of any boiler – it's heat output for further use. Under-standing stationary boiler (industrial or household) is commonly understood building for heating fluid at a certain distance from the industrial, residential or office buildings.

Stationary boiler housed in a permanent building – already existing or newly constructed, its construction – it is a laborious and lengthy process. Stationary buildings and structures may be erected at the site of designs sandwich, they can be as detached and adjoined. However, the construction of a stationary boiler structures also requires more time and labor costs for installation of interior equipment: boilers, pipes, pumps, heat exchangers, instrumentation, electrical equipment. Roof said steam boiler or hot water boiler, which is placed on the roof of the building itself or on a specially constructed based on the roof. Roof units can be fitted under construction or reconstruction of the building if you can not use district heating.

Such boilers used for heating or hot water supply, as industrial buildings, as well as administrative and housing. Building roof designs are usually in a densely built-up areas. Dense buildings and the high cost of land in these areas make the construction of terrestrial plants heat production prohibitively expensive, and the heating system does not allow for a warm new building. Unlike other embodiments, integrated boiler is going directly into the building for other purposes. Such boilers are installed regardless of the ground floor accommodation. Built-in installation may be equipped with built or renovated buildings. As a rule, they are used when there is no possibility or inappropriate use district heating. Building boiler can be performed not only in steady, but the block-modular design. Modular boilers, production of which involve multiple enterprises, today are becoming more popular. Modular installation of a modular building and comes in the form of blocks of high factory readiness to set the main and auxiliary equipment. On-site units are assembled in a single building. Modular boilers are the most expensive and best way to get the necessary power for heating and hot water supply of residential houses, industrial and manufacturing facilities. The advantages of modular boiler installations in the capital before the buildings are obvious: cheaper building designs, quick installation, reducing the length of heating for through the optimal choice of mounting the boiler unit.
