Heart-shaped sprinklers offer eco benefits

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Contech is promoting the ecological benefits of its heart-shaped Rainforest Ecological Sprinklers, designed to lower water consumption. 

The heart-shaped head of the sprinkler breaks up water droplets to improve delivery to the root zone and to prevent wasted water, according to the company. 

“Because they can’t clog, Rainforest Sprinklers are ideal for hard water areas and for low-pressure systems like wells,” said Mark Grambart, president and CEO of Contech Enterprises, the manufacturer of Raniforest Ecological Sprinklers.

The sprinklers operate at low pressures (20 to 80 psi). 

The sprinklers, which are built with only one moving part, cover an area up to 2,000 square feet, and can be used in sequence to expand their range.

BIA promotes bricks as a sustainable material

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The Reston, Va.-based Brick Industry Association (BIA) pointed to winners of its 2011 Brick in Architecture Awards to promote the sustainability of clay brick.

“As a versatile building material made from abundant natural resources, there is no substitute for genuine clay brick,” said Gregg Borchelt, president and CEO of the BIA.

Free of volatile organic compounds and often incorporating recycled content, locally sourced brick reduces the use of fossil fuels. At least two brick plants are located within 500 miles of 49 of the country’s top 50 metropolitan areas, according to the BIA.

Current practices include blending green materials for exteriors, reusing existing walls to extend the lifecycle of the existing building stock and using interior brick walls as part of passive solar design for energy harvesting—brick walls soak up excess solar energy during the day to retain heat and naturally regulate interior temperatures.

Among the houses recognized by a brick award was the Pierce/Lee House in Cedartown, Ga

Noteworthy is the fact that the average mid-range density of the place types is 78 du/acre; while the average minimum density is 37 du/acre. Effectively, these scenarios would usher in a new vertical paradigm throughout the Bay Area—one that has yet to be market-tested and culturally embraced by the vast majority of Bay Area residents. Cómo ganarme el corazón de un hombre Already, some local governments are expressing grave concern—if not outright hostility—to the densification reflected in the existing scenarios and the radical change in land use patterns each represents.

As an alternative, some are urging MTC and ABAG to use land use scenario developed two years ago for the existing RTP as the basis for the draft SCS Preferred Scenario, noting in a Feb. 15 letter to the agencies that they are more consistent with local general plans and are on par with the other scenarios in terms of GHG reduction. CRM | DJ Hochzeit Kosten In fact, an analysis done by the agencies last year suggests the “Current Regional Plans” scenario performs even better, possibly attaining a 10 percent per capita GHG reduction by 2035. In addition, analysis done by the agencies estimates non-land use GHG reduction strategies (including telecommuting, driver-awareness campaigns and vanpool incentives) may deliver additional GHG reduction of 6.5 percent, suggesting there might be a simpler and a less costly and less wrenching path forward.

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Winchester, Va.-based Annandale Millwork and Allied Systems received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification.
