Casa Nianis 112 is a residential building located in Barrio Santa Bárbara Alta in the city of Bogotá. It consists of two floors and a semi-basement, with an isolated typology, whose orientation, design, use of materials and eco-sustainability give it important architectural value. The masterful use of concrete and wood enrich the facades and interiors of the construction.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaThe design of the building seeks to generate a single volume capable of reaching all the expectations and needs of a young family with clear guidelines regarding design and functionality, where eco-sustainability became a fundamental part of the project. To reach this end, natural conditions, materials, creative talent and construction techniques were combined.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaThe spatial distribution included large social areas, three comfortable rooms, a study, an office, green areas, multiple service areas and covered parking.Save this picture!Floor Plan First FloorSave this picture!Floor Plan Second FloorThe house was designed and built as an isolated volume on top of the concrete platform that forms the basement. The structure and walls in architectural concrete make up a clean element that stands out for its sobriety, however, the warmth provided by wood contributes to the composition of the facades, skillfully worked in pure lines, adding colour and vitality to the building.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaThe conviction that through the use of concrete infinite details are achieved without neglecting the structural condition turned the idea into this applied architectural object. A three-dimensional design that gives rise to a matrix with positive and negative faces, converts wooden panels into moulds for walls with a functional aesthetic. This can be observed in the Eastern facade, which has a concrete coffered ceiling where the pieces bring movement to the wall, awakening an unusual interest of the senses.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaThe bare concrete forms the spaces, while it is the wood that is responsible for closing the environments, it is the visual limit projecting a play of light and shadows.Save this picture!East and West ElevationsNatural light entering through the large windows plays a preponderant role in the life of the building. Its projection through skylights, louvres and windows create warm and welcoming spaces.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaThe building is surrounded by imposing concrete walls that serve as a backdrop to gardens designed with smaller plants and shrubs typical of the native flora of Bogotá, highlighting ferns of the high Andean forests as well. The floor of eco cobblestone intermingles with nature. Ramps and external stairs become elements of composition. The whole house is projected to the green spaces that transcend to the roof, where the green terrace generates a pantry of organic food for the family and also becomes a contribution to the reduction of CO2 in the city.Save this picture!© Herbert PeñalozaIn contribution to eco-sustainability, the grey waters are treated with filtration processes and used in irrigation systems and sanitary networks.

Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jul 11, 2017 Livestock Manure Emissions Fight Continues Home Indiana Agriculture News Livestock Manure Emissions Fight Continues manure emissionsFarm and livestock groups will continue to fight for an exemption from emergency reporting of manure emissions, after the EPA lost a federal court decision to environmental groups that sued over the exemption.The U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit denied a request by pork, poultry and other livestock and farm groups to rehear its rejection of an EPA exemption from 2008 U.S. manure emission reporting regulations. American Farm Bureau’s Andrew Walmsley argues that hazardous substance reporting is unnecessary for manure.“We’ve been working with our first responder communities and those that receive these reports saying we really don’t need them, but because of the court vacating back in April we’ve been working with EPA and working the hill to try to find a solution.”Walmsley and other ag leaders expect EPA to ask the court to stay its decision and give the agency more time to figure out a way forward. Without a stay, AFB, National Pork Producers, poultry and cattle groups fear more lawsuits by environmentalists.“There’s opportunities for mischief and that’s we call the conflict entrepreneur seeing it as another opportunity to misuse a law for outside of its intentions to go after hardworking farmers and ranchers.”Walmsley adds, there’s no way scientifically, to measure manure emissions, creating a reporting ‘headache’ for producers, while possibly overwhelming emergency call centers. AFB, NPPC and other groups hope EPA can come up with a regulatory way out of the manure reporting mess.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE SHARE Previous articleTrade Retaliation Worries Ag GroupsNext articlePounding Rains Pound Hoosiers Again Andy Eubank

This projection follows Q1 numbers that drooped after a solid Q4.In Q4, the GDP grew by 2.1 percent, followed by a first quarter in which the GDP’s growth rate dropped to 0.7 percent. This is the fourth consecutive year in which first quarter growth slowed from the fourth quarter, partly reflecting ongoing seasonality issues, Fannie reported.Housing was a bright spot during the first quarter, and home sales performed well going into the spring season, thanks to solid labor market conditions and a recent retreat in mortgage rates, Fannie reported. Meanwhile, businesses will likely increase production in an effort to rebuild inventories, turning inventory investment into a positive for, instead of a large drag on, growth.Unemployment stayed level at 4.7 percent from Q4 to Q1, but is expected to drop to 4.5 this quarter. A year ago, the rate was 4.9 percent.While Fannie expects year-over-year housing starts to cool a bit in Q2‒‒a projected 1.24 million, down from 1.253 million units, compared to last year‒‒the GSE at the same time expects existing home sales and total home sales to increase. Fannie is calling for existing sales to reach the cusp of 5.7 million units, up from 5.6 million units in Q1; and for total home sales to reach 6.3 million units, up from 6.2 million.New home prices are expected to hit a median $330,000 in Q2; existing homes $253,000. Each price point would be an increase of $20,000.“Positive demographic factors should continue to reshape the housing market, as rising employment and incomes appear to be positively influencing millennial homeownership rates,” Duncan said. “However, the tight supply of homes for sale continues to act as both a boon to home prices and an impediment to affordability.”Despite some recent troubles for in the retail sector, Fannie reported that incoming data suggest consumer spending growth will pick up this quarter. Fannie projects personal consumption expenditures to rise from 0.3 percent in Q1 to 3 percent by the end of this quarter.“Once again, our full-year growth forecast remains intact as the economy grinds along, with the prospect of material policy changes appearing to be delayed,” said Fannie Mae chief economist Doug Duncan. “We expect consumer spending to resume its role as the biggest driver of growth in the second quarter amid improvements in the labor market.
