Fitts-Woolard Hall design focuses on transparency and engineering on displayRALEIGH, N.C. - March 2, 2021 - PRLog -- Clark Nexsen has completed Fitts-Woolard Hall on Centennial Campus at NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. The $150 million engineering building is the embodiment of Think and Do, the university's mission statement connecting thought and action. As the architect and engineer, Clark Nexsen partnered with NC State to design the 225,000 square foot facility. The new building is intended to support multidisciplinary instruction and research while fostering collaboration between students, faculty, and individual engineering departments."Fitts-Woolard Hall is an engineering hub that provides critical infrastructure for catalyzing new innovations and developing tomorrow's workforce," comments NC State chancellor Randy Woodson.The design emphasizes transparency and "engineering on display." Extensive use of glass allows daylight to penetrate into the four-story building. The transparency into these spaces offers glimpses of cutting-edge research and allows the school to showcase its ongoing work. Throughout the facility, structural elements and building systems are revealed as an additional instructional tool.The south entry is flanked by a structural testing lab, senior student project space, and large-scale driving simulator visible to students and visitors from within and outside the building. These hands-on, investigative spaces enable civil and structural engineers to test theories, calculations, and materials.With more than 100 classrooms and state-of-the-art laboratories, Fitts-Woolard Hall consolidates the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering and the Fitts Department of Industrial and System Engineering under one roof. The new engineering building is the final move to unify the school's College of Engineering on Centennial Campus.Ranked among the top 25 U.S. engineering programs, NC State is a powerful driver of economic impact in North Carolina and beyond. In the past 10 years, engineering undergraduate enrollment at NC State has grown by 22 percent, and graduate enrollment has more than doubled. Fitts-Woolard Hall provides an innovative facility to help accommodate that growth and further position NC State University as an international leader in engineering education.Fitts-Woolard Hall is the first public-private partnership by the university to fund the construction of an academic building. Half the cost came from public funds through a 2016 state bond referendum. The remaining half has come from private funds, including a $25 million joint gift from alumni Edward P. Fitts Jr. and Edgar S. Woolard Jr.The new building is positioned to the north of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, designed by Snøhetta and Clark Nexsen, and completed in 2013. Skanska was the construction manager at risk for both projects.Due to the pandemic, the NC State Engineering Foundation is delaying in-person events centered around the building grand opening and is planning to host them during the spring 2021 semester.ContactCat Brutvanfirstname.lastname@example.orgPhotos: (Click photo to enlarge) Read Full Story - First look: Clark Nexsen completes engineering building at NC State University | More news from this sourcePress release distribution by PRLog
PHOENIX - March 2, 2021 - PRLog -- Mosaic, a venture-backed construction technology company, announced today the hiring of Mervin Singson as their first-ever Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Singson brings over 20 years of finance and operations experience with both public and private homebuilders.As CFO of Mosaic, he will play a key role in ensuring that the Arizona-based company effectively executes against its current $350mm construction project pipeline, and expands the company's operations regionally."Mosaic's construction technology uniquely supports and enhances the homebuilding industry," said Mervin Singson. "With an impressive team, innovative product and business model, and strong financial backing, we're poised for unprecedented growth throughout the construction industry. I'm excited to bring my experience to the table and be a part of Mosaic's story."Mosaic provides construction and related services to homebuilders, permitting homebuilders to offload their construction management needs to Mosaic's integrated technology platform. Builders can use Mosaic as their general contractor instead of maintaining an in-house operation and avoid the hassles of construction. This gives them the ability to focus on land acquisitions, sales and marketing, and architecture.Mosaic's technology is a tightly integrated construction management software platform called MosaicOS that manages the disparate sources of data and bespoke workflows involved in homebuilding; in other words, the fundamental chaos of high volume homebuilding.Their process converts standard construction drawings into digital twin models that can be used to optimize field work, then uses algorithms to automatically translate the models into site-specific instructions for workers, control files for automation, and data for quality control and reporting. The platform also optimizes scheduling, accounting, supervising, redlining workflows to improve construction throughput with minimal required changes to construction drawings, engineering drawings, city approvals, or construction materials."We're lucky to have Mervin's strong financial acumen and homebuilding experience to support Mosaic's significant growth," said Mosaic CEO Salman Ahmad. "He will play a critical role in our geographic expansion into a number of homebuilding markets that are seeing large population growth and need more housing ASAP."Prior to joining Mosaic, Singson was the CFO of B2R Partners, a joint venture between TPG Capital, Toll Brothers and BB Living Management that focuses on build-to-rent homes. He was formerly the VP of Corporate Finance at AV Homes. A licensed CPA, Singson earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from the University of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business.Learn more about how Mosaic is building better at www.mosaic.us.ContactFran Bangertemail@example.comPhotos: (Click photo to enlarge) Read Full Story - Construction Technology Startup Mosaic Hires Real Estate Veteran as First CFO | More news from this sourcePress release distribution by PRLog

A Fort Worth man is being recognized as a hero at his job for taking in group home residents just before the roof caved in as a result of water damage from the winter storm Jeff Jeff, group home resident, thanks Volunteers of America Texas staff member for taking him in during severe winter weather. FORT WORTH, Texas - March 2, 2021 - (Newswire.com) As a result of the recent severe winter weather, many Texans learned first-hand what it's like to deal with long power outages in freezing cold weather. Some also had the misfortune of a freezing pipe bursting. Now imagine experiencing both in the only home you've known for years as a person with developmental disabilities. Richard Kemp, a 21-year veteran employee was on duty that night at Pamela House, a Volunteers of America Texas group home for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. "The lights went out and it got really cold. The clients started shaking," he said. "They wanted to know when power would return and what we were going to do." Richard moved the housemates to the van in the driveway so they could warm up as he contemplated his next move. Local hotels were booked from other residents seeking power and warmth, but he had been lucky. "I knew there was power, water and heat at my house so I told [my supervisor] they can come stay with me." Which is how it came to be that Richard hosted residents in his own home, cooking three meals a day for an entire week (reportedly more than he had ever cooked before!). "He made pork chops, chicken, green beans, spaghetti, pizza and oatmeal," recounted Jeff, a resident of Pamela House. Of the experience, he remarked, "I'd never seen anything like it." Richard even slept on the floor, moving his daughter into his own bed while Jeff and his housemate occupied the other rooms. Richard said, "It was crazy, but I'd do it again. I love those guys." Must be why he treated them like family. Update: During this time, a pipe burst at Pamela House destroying the interior, so residents have been moved to another group home while the property is gutted and repairs are made, a process estimated to take two to three months.
