The spring annual Budget accompanies one, while under the previous Labour administration a substantial pre-Budget report followed in the autumn months. The coalition, which came to power in May after 13 years of Labour rule, delivered an emergency Budget in June which outlined fiscal policy until 2015, in particular how a record Budget deficit of around 11 per cent would be cut.A replacement for interim Office for Budget Responsibility chairman Alan Budd is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

The large mass of a single building is broken down into two and is harmoniously adapted to the terrain. The masses are laid out facing the view, and the central courtyard has been created between them, adapted to the slope of the terrain and protected from the north  winds.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisThe entrance is on the western side of the site, at its highest point, and has been inserted between the masonry buttressing walls. The buildings, of a small mass, are adapted as much as possible to the incline and topography of the terrain. A basic aim has been the least burdening with a building mass of the protected area. The courtyard at the rear, protected from the strong winds, organises the functions by creating a nucleus with direct reference to the building masses. Such forms are encountered in monasteries, which have the cells on the perimeter and the church in the centre. Similar arrangements are also to be found in traditional complexes of ‘katoikiés’.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionThe stone walls encircle and ‘hug’ the building, protecting it from prying eyes. Ιn some places, the walls become a building, and in others, courtyards are created, adapted to the ground and to the environment. The plastered white walls of the buildings are visible only from the inner courtyard, and fragments of the elevations can be seen by the passer-by. The elevations consist of walls around the central courtyard; in this way plasticity of form is achieved, integrated into a unitary approach to architecture. The design of the apertures is combined with the architectural character of the building. The feature of the repetition and standardisation predominates. The apertures in the perimeter wall are as few as possible. Great emphasis is placed on the ‘fifth elevation’, the roofs, as there are views from the hills round about.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!© George MessaritakisBy employing the features of Cycladic architecture, we have de- signed an ensemble of buildings and a landscaping of the terrain adapted to the waterless Cycladic conditions, with a view to leaving the smallest possible footprint on the environment. . The transformation of the morphological features of Cycladic architecture with   a view to creating a contemporary architectural language is, together with its integration into the natural landscape, the guiding principle of the design. Save this picture!© George MessaritakisThe totality of the intervention realised is in dialogue with the land- scape and creates a space for habitation.

The 722 Ash Street House consists of a 1500 sf primary house with a contiguous 500 sf accessory dwelling. The project is set in the rich culture of North Lawrence, its rear property line abuts the Lawrence levee trail which runs for nine miles along the north bank of the Kansas River.Save this picture!© Corey Gaffer – Gaffer PhotographySave this picture!© Corey Gaffer – Gaffer PhotographyNorth Lawrence is known for its quality soil, large trees, curbless streets and random size parcels before it breaks into larger farms further from the urban center. It is built on the typical orthogonal grid of American development, but it represents the older growth of the city prior to urban planners and zoning regulations. The rumble of freight trains and farm trucks in the shadows of the towering grain elevators are only blocks away. It is home to many who enjoy being only a bridge crossing away from Lawrence’s vibrant downtown but are far enough away to maintain their independence from many of the restrictions on living near the historic district. They can work in their large gardens and toiling in their garages and shops in a manner more rural than urban. Save this picture!© Corey Gaffer – Gaffer PhotographySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Corey Gaffer – Gaffer PhotographyThe house on 722 Ash St. is imbued with the character of North Lawrence and the Levee Trail area. The design was inspired by the Midwestern farmstead vernacular of the region. These timeless vernacular qualities house all the accommodations necessary for modern, sustainable living. A unique feature of this house is the Accessory Dwelling Unit permitted in the zoning district. It is a small separate residence on the same lot that can be used for income property or for extended family members. It also supports the city of Lawrence’s goals of increased density close to downtown rather than continued sprawl into the countryside.Save this picture!© Corey Gaffer – Gaffer PhotographyThe buildings use technology and common-sense design to reduce the building’s footprint and assure the owners low energy use and costs. A 4.9 Kw solar collection system is located on the only south facing gable and the super insulated envelopes (r-62 roof and r-35 walls) of all three forms easily exceeds the standards. Studio 804 continues their long standing pattern of maintaining the highest level of sustainable design while remaining contextually sensitive to the surrounding community.

first_img The National Trust begins a phased reopening of some of its gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland this week, using advance bookings to limit visitor numbers.From Wednesday, 3 June, the Trust will begin reopening a small number of gardens and parklands with more to follow over the coming weeks. All admission will be by pre-booked ticket only and people can now book their tickets in advance on property web pages. They are free for Trust members, and other visitors will pay an admission fee.All the Trust’s houses, shops, holiday cottages and campsites remain closed in line with government guidelines.The charity will only reopen where social distancing can be observed, and these locations will open to around a third of their normal capacity at any one time. Visitors arriving at reopening properties by car will be asked to show pre-booked tickets through their vehicle window before parking. Those arriving on foot will have bookings checked by staff who will adhere to social distancing.Director General Hilary McGrady said:“We want to provide safe, local, welcoming spaces for people, and wherever possible we will open our gardens and parks, and coast and countryside car parks.“The fresh air, bird song, big skies and open spaces people have missed will be there, but things will be very different, particularly at first. We want to thank people for their patience and support while we gradually begin reopening and welcoming our visitors.”English Heritage is also planning to reopen some of its outdoor spaces and historic sites. On 13 June it will start the first phase, with further sites reopening in early July. It hopes to have all sites open again by August.Visitor numbers will also be limited and people will again need to book in advance and arrive during a time slot.The first sites to reopen will be announced around 8 June, and it will let members know by email ahead of this.Opening attractions and allowing face-to-face contact is essential for charities restarting, research by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has highlighted.Its survey of 539 charities was taken after the slight easing in lockdown measures in England was announced but most charities (75%) said the initial measures would have little or no impact on their ability to cope with the effects of the pandemic.When asked to identify the steps that would make the biggest difference to their ability to reopen many of their services, almost one in three (28%) singled out a return to face-to-face contact with clients. Others pointed to reopening of community centres (18%) and visitor attractions such as museums and gardens (13%). The reopening of charity shops and cafes were also listed as important.Previous research showed that some charities have made significant changes in response to the crisis with 4 in 10 (39%) saying they had found an alternative or innovative way to deliver a service (such as turning a soup kitchen into a meal delivery service for vulnerable people). A quarter (25%) reported that they had found a new way to reach their beneficiaries, largely by relying on technology to keep in touch.Susan Pinkney, Head of Research at CAF, said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 National Trust begins phased reopening this week Main image: Corfe Castle in Dorset is one of the properties reopening.  465 total views,  2 views today  466 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 “We know the effect of this crisis meant that just when so many charities were facing incredible demand for services, their ability to deliver was also curtailed.“So many charities have impressed with their ability to move quickly to find another way of delivering services or teaming up with other charities and partners to help their communities.“This survey tells us that charities, like so many others, are looking towards the future and trying to assess how they can rebuild their capacity safely.” Melanie May | 1 June 2020 | News Tagged with: COVID-19 National Trust About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Required fields are marked * First Heatwave Expected Next Week David Lourie, MD, Director, Bariatric Surgery Program, Huntington HospitalHuntington Memorial Hospital has been named as one of the first healthcare facilities in the nation to receive a Blue Distinction® Center+ designation in the area of bariatric surgery by the Blue Distinctions Centers for Specialty Care program. Blue Distinction® Centers are nationally designated healthcare facilities shown to deliver quality specialty care based on objective measures, which were developed with input from the medical community, for patient safety and better health outcomes.To receive a Blue Distinction Center+ for Bariatric Surgery designation, a healthcare facility must demonstrate success in meeting patient safety as well as bariatric-specific quality measures, including complications and readmissions, for gastric stapling and/or gastric banding procedures. A healthcare facility must also have earned national accreditations at both the facility level and the bariatric care-specific level, as well as demonstrate better cost efficiency relative to its peers.Quality is key: only those facilities that first meet Blue Distinction’s nationally-established, objective quality measures will be considered for designation as a Blue Distinction Center+. Huntington Hospital is proud to be recognized by our local health plan, Anthem Blue Cross for meeting the rigorous selection criteria for bariatric surgery set by the Blue Distinction Centers for Specialty Care program.“On behalf of the entire bariatric team, we are honored to be recognized as a Blue Distinction® Center,” said David Lourie, MD, director, bariatric surgery program, Huntington Hospital. “Bariatric surgery is an effective tool for patients who have obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, and is used as part of comprehensive plans developed by our team. By following these plans, we have been able to help thousands of people improve their quality of life, which often includes educating them about nutrition, exercise and behavior modifications.”Research shows that facilities designated as Blue Distinction Centers+ demonstrate better quality and improved outcomes for patients compared with their peers. On average, Blue Distinction Centers+ are also 20 percent or more cost efficient than non-BDC+ designated healthcare facilities.Since 2006, the Blue Distinction Centers for Specialty Care program has helped patients find quality providers for their specialty care needs in the areas of bariatric surgery, cardiac care, complex and rare cancers, knee and hip replacements, spine surgery, and transplants while encouraging healthcare professionals to improve the care they deliver.
