LATEST STORIES Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown “Right now we’re missing a lot of players, they [Ravena and the Nieto twins] kept motivating us,” said Kouame Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “Isaac’s helped me in everything, off the court and on the court, he’s my second coach.”Go, who’s in his fourth year with the Blue Eagles, was once the young buck taking in the guidance of former captain Vince Tolentino and GBoy Babilonia but he’s now the one looking for his younger teammates.“We really help him to get better,” said Go. “But he’s the one getting those extra shots and you have to give him credit for that and I haven’t done anything much to ‘mentor’ him.”As for Kouame, he credits Go for helping him in his continued improvement in the UAAP.“He’s my second coach,” said Kouame.ADVERTISEMENT Go added that Kouame’s persistence to better himself has translated into the whole team atmosphere and it’s the 6-foot-10 center’s eagerness that helped the Blue Eagles get into the position they’re in and that is the top of the standings with a 7-2 record.“We have competitive practices, he pushes us to be better at practice, and when you go up against a guy like Ange he makes everyone better, work harder and that’s because we have to complement what he’s doing,” said Go.

first_imgHello, Green NSP World. I saw this post on the larger Enterprise Community Partners blog by Ray Demers @the horizon and thought you would enjoy it! – AmyCharrettes as a simpler fixWould you rather replace the gasket on a leaky faucet or wet-vac your flooded basement? Most people would choose to replace the gasket — it’s a simpler problem, a cheaper fix and a much smaller headache. That, in a nutshell, is integrative design — project teams coming together early in the design process to identify potential opportunities and risks, and address them before they become costly.Beyond just saving time and money, integrative design allows teams to brainstorm and design in real time: electrical engineers informing the architect, operations and maintenance (O&M) staff informing the HVAC engineer, and residents informing the landscape architect. These real-time interactive design sessions, called charrettes, facilitate better coordination among contractors and engineers, and often result in more comfortable and well-designed buildings. Charrettes are also the perfect time to consider green building options that enhance the quality of life for residents and save resources.Saving time and money: an exampleIn case you still think integrative design planning is a luxury rather than a necessity, here’s an example of how this kind of planning can make a huge impact:A group wants to build a multistory residential development in a suburban location. The developer has few requirements, but wants to keep the price tag low. During the charrette, the architect asks participants to rethink the building’s solar orientation. They decide to do this by making the primary hallway run east to west. This small change allows the mechanical engineer to scale down the HVAC system slightly because of the increased natural ventilation.Then, a member of the O&M staff suggests adding shading devices over the windows to further reduce the load on the HVAC system. The landscape architect concludes that changing the solar orientation of the building will create a more scenic approach, allowing him to design a larger retention pond and maybe even recycle the site’s rainwater. The building becomes more comfortable because of the natural ventilation and solar shading, more efficient and less costly to run because of the smaller HVAC system — and all of this was made possible by reconsidering something as simple as solar orientation.The end resultWhat’s the end result of an integrative design session like the one described above? See the Living Building Eco-Charrette Report by Green Building Services to learn more.And here are some resources for planning and conducting your integrative design session: Enterprise Green Communities Charrette ToolkitNational Institute of Building Science ResourcesWhat’s your experience in integrative design?
