Minimising risk in security specifications

Increasingly, specifiers are required to factor security measures to prevent business losses through theft and armed robbery into plans for commercial buildings. Although they can’t prevent every breach of security, they can go a long way towards reducing losses by specifying high quality, certified products that act as both a deterrent and an effective stumbling block to criminals.  The concern is how to verify that a product can do what it is advertised to do? One of the best ways is to check on the product’s certification by an independent third party.

Climate change, oil/energy security, food security, waste generation, water and soil degradation, the destruction of habitat and the extinction of species, and now the financial crisis too, all impact on each other directly or indirectly. Understanding this interconnectedness is fundamental to understanding the true cost of our actions.  In this context, Sustainability Week aims to identify opportunities for change that recognise the ‘full picture’. Taking a broad view and engaging on specific issues, it will look at ways to make our economy and society more sustainable and resilient to external shocks – such as drought, extreme weather conditions, runaway oil prices and others.

Folding stacking doors

Folding, stacking doors are ideal for creating indoor/outdoor living spaces, whether in the home, in hotels and lodges, sports centres or other recreational facilities. Charl Jacobz from Swartland Wooden Windows and Doors offers some pointers on what to look for when investing in fold-aside doors, sometimes referred to as stacking or concertina doors.  He highlights that the floor-to-ceiling height of fold-aside doors typically allows for excellent outdoor views and admits an abundance of natural light to the interior.  Fold-aside doors generally comprise a series of “sections” or hinged door leaves that can be opened and pushed aside so that they stack in a concertina style on either one or two sides of the opening. Because they can be opened and neatly stacked to the side they are a great option for maximising the free flow of space and creating a feeling of openness between indoors and out.

The right fittings for safe escape from fire

RWA is a German acronym which, translated, means ‘smoke and heat extraction’. The smart technology designed into Geze’s RWA systems provides for safe, smoke-free escape routes in the event of a fire in a building.  It has been recognised that, more often than the fire itself, smoke from a fire in a building can be the primary cause of loss of life. With building regulations and fire prevention legislation becoming increasingly stringent to minimise this risk, it has become essential to ensure that smoke-free escape routes are easily accessible – and as quickly accessible as possible.

The difference between ductile and grey iron

Both Ductile Iron and Grey Iron have a carbon content of about 3.5% that inhibits corrosion. The addition of magnesium at the molten stage of the metal transforms the flakes of graphite, which is common to the grey iron casting process, into a spheroidal or nodular form.

Levelling the playing fields

Master builders associations have an important role to play in the “levelling of the playing fields” in the construction sector, says Hennie Bester, president of the Gauteng Master Builders Association (GMBA).  Speaking at the GMBA annual presidential dinner in Johannesburg, Bester said the building sector was struggling as a result of the inability of government departments to roll out capital projects and with the shock of collusion in the industry also having severely dented the industry’s image.

Fire-resistant cladding for hotel fire safety

The Grand Daddy Hotel off Long Street in Cape Town has become something of a landmark since the former Metropole Hotel was converted into what is termed ‘a fashion hotel’ with a rooftop trailer park. Each of the Grand Daddy’s Airstream Penthouse Trailers is air-conditioned and has an en suite bathroom. The classic trailers were sourced in the USA by the developers, Jody Aufrichtig and Nicholas Ferguson, along with others in the team, Stefan Botha, Sergio Dreyer and Francois van Binsbergen. The rooftop also features a mini-outdoor cinema and a residents’ bar beneath a freeform tent where guests can relax. The revamp of the hotel was the work of interior stylist Tracy Lynch and each trailer on the rooftop was custom designed by individual Cape Town designers.

Clay brick – a frontrunner for housing delivery

It is reported that between 1994 and June 2010, government financed the building of over 2.7 million homes for South Africans, giving shelter to more than 13 million people. Government spending on housing delivery increased from R4.8 billion in 2004/05 to R10.9 billion in the 2009/10 financial year. Yet there are still thousands of informal settlements across the country and more than 12 million South Africans are still in need of proper homes.

High performance matting for retail centres

Shopping centres in major urban areas can attract thousands of people daily – and lots of people potentially means lots of dirt on shoes. It is important to provide effective entrance flooring systems so that the transfer of dirt and moisture is reduced and interior floors and galleries remain clean and safe underfoot. The most effective solution is an all-in-one combination which will scrape, dry and clean and ensure that dirt is not transferred into the centre.

R5.4 billion in incentives for energy efficiency

The restraint on availability of electrical power supply is one of the factors that is obstructing the rollout of building projects. Speaking at the recent Building Industry Crisis Summit, which was hosted by Master Builders South Africa (MBSA) in Johannesburg in February, Andrew Etzinger, general manager for resources and strategy at Eskom, offered delegates a clear picture of the current status on electricity supply versus demand. He also outlined Eskom’s plans to increase its power generation capacity as well as the incentives it already has in place to encourage all users of electricity to reduce their current levels of consumption. Etzinger appealed to building professionals and contractors to influence their clients to make energy-efficient choices upfront – in the design of buildings and specification of materials, as well as in specifying the right equipment in lighting, office equipment, heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) systems, including pumps and fans, and in installing power management and control systems.
