The project juxtaposes two houses and a void that houses a car park, an entrance and two staircases, working as a thermal regulator and constructing a tracking shot between a garden, a folie and a picturesque grotto while crossing through the lounge, sauna-fitness center, bar, dining room and kitchen. Save this picture!ModelOne of the houses is organized to inhabit the soil with its habits and routines. The other was made light-heartedly, emancipated from the ground, in the air, is flying at a double height over the garden. Both are totally different each other in materiality, shape and weight. The most important spatial interest of the complex is the heterogeneous, ambiguous and membranous space that appears between the two houses.Save this picture!© Imagen SubliminalThe scenic load of this space is achieved through the exposure of domestic life circulating between floors. The ground floor is contained between two long concrete walls. These walls cut into the soil to accommodate two ‘ conventional and modern’  volumes, connected by a corridor surrounding the empty greenhouse-stage. In the South there is a garden for “the Good Life”, to the North lurks the “Grotesque Garden”— in the middle is the promising double height greenhouse.Save this picture!Plan 2 Over this green sequence along the plot, a smooth surface, based at ground level, lets Nature to cross over the slab and the car to pass through one side to the other over the dining-kitchen area.

California Black Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Minority Contractors / Northern California…

first_img Facebook Local NewsUS News By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 WhatsApp TAGS  California Black Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Minority Contractors / Northern California Chapter Partner to Build Advocacy for M/WBE Construction Trades WhatsApp California Black Chamber of CommerceSACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 22, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The new year is off to an industrious start with Jay King, CEO and President of the California Black Chamber of Commerce (CBCC), announcing a statewide partnership with the National Association of Minority Contractors, Northern California (NAMCNC), under the direction of its Northern California Chapter President, Pete Varma. The two organizations intend to spearhead a plan to direct support, education and contracting opportunities to Minority/Women Business Enterprises construction trades throughout California. Together both CBCC and NAMCNC will act as catalysts, building relationships between corporations seeking subcontracting opportunities and underrepresented small businesses. The CBCC is the largest African American non-profit business organization, representing hundreds of businesses, affiliates and Chambers of Commerce in California while the NAMC is the oldest minority construction trade association in the United States. The construction industry workforce in the United States is made up of over 25 million Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) employees. The representation of BIPOC in critical roles has never been more crucial. While there are some corporations that are actively promoting inclusion and diversity in the awarding of work contracts, many are not, due to the inability to properly target these candidates. Both King and Varma hope to mitigate this disproportioned workforce by stimulating a productive environment of inclusive hiring-tactics, targeted training programs, and by forming partnerships with owners, developers and prime contractors. “This last year has been a tumultuous one for the building and construction trades. Within this key industry group, no one has felt the crippling effects of the pandemic more than minorities, women, the disabled veteran-owned and especially the Black-owned construction trades,” expressed Pete Varma, NAMCNC President. “As a result, this segment has faced additional roadblocks when it comes to talent acquisition, strategic partnerships and the opportunity to effectively scale their construction business.” “Recognizing this, NAMCNC has developed a Pre-Apprentice Construction Labor-Ready program. NAMCNC is filling the gap of labor shortage by educating and training young men and women from underserved communities, foster youth, high schools/ adult schools and others. Coupled with our Contractor Readiness program, which includes financing, bonding, and growth strategy, we are priming our members for success. NAMCNC is enthusiastic about our constituents and works towards creating a more representative and equitable workforce. Our alliance with the CBCC positions us to be even more of service,” cites Varma. NAMC is made of more than 50 Hall of Fame legacy contractors and builders, with a combined annual project capacity of over a billion dollars nationally. As a leading voice for minority trade workers, NAMC also provides assistance/guidance to undocumented workers in the construction industry. Corporations, owners, developers, city, county and federal agencies all must change their policies to ensure the growth and opportunity for the under-represented contractor workforce. CBCC and NAMCNC are focused on influencing the legislation of each local municipality, so that they are more encouraging and focused on minorities, disabled veterans and women-owned businesses, all while, improving the culture of the construction industry they effect. “Our economy is being rebuilt after a year of unrelenting devastation, from the pandemic and the many protests that have taken place throughout the Trump Presidency. But we don’t want to focus on the divide, we want to build the bridge of coming together,” cites CBCC CEO and President, Jay King. “With 95% of our (African American) businesses existing as one employee, financial literacy is the chamber’s foundational mission alongside of ensuring that our small and micro business owners are included in the rebuilding process of our communities and economies.” “Pete and I will mobilize all key opportunities to represent on behalf of these entities, to ensure they are not overlooked and partner them with other sole proprietors from all of the other disadvantaged groups who have similar issues, so that we can create a culture of allies, not adversaries, and comrades instead of competitors,” King continues. “This we believe will be the beginning of a conversation that should be had across America in every business sector in the country. We want to be inclusive of all Americans so we can make ‘America Great for Once.’” Pete Varma serves as President of National Association of Minority Contractors Northern California Chapter, Vice President of Nokatu Construction (an America Indian General Contractor firm) and President of Intraline, Inc. Varma serves on Caltrans Statewide Small Business Council, Standing Committee, emphasis: Small Business (SB), the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBE) and Chair for Caltrans Statewide Small Business Council-Construction Committee and member of African American DBE Participation Committee for the California Department of Transportation. He also serves and advocates on behalf of Minority, Women and Disabled Construction Trades to the California High Speed Rail and to the BART Small Business Advisory Council. Varma’s development teams are made up of local talent that utilize community-based resources. Varma has devoted over 30 years to construction management services, allowing all motivated members of each community an opportunity to affect its growth. Jay King was elected president of the California Black Chamber of Commerce in June of 2019, working tirelessly as an advocate for African American small business owners. His community involvement includes sitting on the Cal Trans Small Business Council, Chairman of the African American DBE, Participation Committee for the California Department of Transportation, as well as holding seats on the Small Business Council for the Department of General Services (DGS) and the California High Speed Rail project. Other organizations include Commissioner on the Sacramento Police Commission, organizer of the North Sacramento Leadership Council, and founder and spokesperson for the Greater Sacramento Financial Literacy Group. Both Jay King and Pete Varma are encouraging corporations and contractors alike to reach out to them for additional information.

He can be reached at [email protected] Related Articles About Author: David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago With home prices and demand continuing to soar and housing inventory running short in many markets, homebuyers might have to start reconsidering what they’re looking for from a home. One trend that’s been the subject of much coverage is the so-called “tiny homes” phenomenon—bite-sized domiciles that cater to those looking for cheaper options and a simpler approach to daily living. But can these tiny homes really serve as a viable option for homebuyers looking to find more affordable alternatives? Redfin’s new report breaking down the top 10 most popular tiny homes on the market might provide some clues.To find the top 10 tiny homes on the market, Redfin looked at “actively listed single-family homes under 600 square feet in more than 80 markets” and used the number of “favorites” from Redfin users to gauge each home’s popularity among home shoppers. The most popular tiny home currently on the market, according to Redfin, is a quaint, 580 square-foot home in Seattle, Washington. Listed for $309,950, the home certainly isn’t cheap, but it is less than half of the Seattle median home price of $772,729 (according to Zillow data).The top three tiny homes are all in Washington, actually. Number two on the list is a 400 square-foot residence in Monroe, Washington (median home price $424,885), and it’s listed for just shy of $300k. The third-most-popular entry is 440 square feet, listed for $229,000, and located in Gold Bar, Washington (median home price $291,744).With the exception of number six (also in Washington state), the rest of Redfin’s top 10 list is located in California. It’s not surprising that some Californian home shoppers might consider going the tiny homes route—home prices in many California markets have traditionally been high, and the state as a whole is facing severe housing shortages. But how do these pint-sized California homes compare to their Washington counterparts in terms of affordability?The top California tiny home on the list is in the midst of one of the hottest markets in the country, Los Angeles. At 470 square feet and $465,000, this L.A. home is almost $200k cheaper than the $674,140 median home price for L.A.For those willing to sacrifice space to save money, tiny homes do look to be a viable option for homebuyers who can find one to their liking. Riverside, California, is apparently something of a tiny home mecca, with 153 of them currently listed, well ahead of Phoenix’s 99, New York’s 86, L.A.’s 70, and Tampa’s 55.Of course, smallness doesn’t guarantee affordability. Redfin reports that the most expensive tiny home on the market is a 600-square-foot home in Santa Cruz, California, that’s going for $1.25 million—or more than two grand per square foot. (The median home value in Santa Cruz is $913,912.) The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Can Tiny Homes Help Combat Affordability Issues?
