Real estate development, or property development, is a multifaceted business, encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the purchase of raw land and the sale of improved land or parcels to others. Developers are the coordinators of the activities, converting ideas on paper into real property.

Real estate development is different from construction, although many developers also construct. Developer Louis Lesser drew the distinction in a 1963 New York Times article, "Developing is the key word. 'We don't build ourselves', Mr. Lesser stresses. 'We buy the land, finance the deal, and then we have the best builders build under bond at a fixed cost.'"

Developers buy land, finance real estate deals, build or have builders build projects, create, imagine, control and orchestrate the process of development from the beginning to end.

Developers usually take the greatest risk in the creation or renovation of real estate—and receive the greatest rewards. Typically, developers purchase a tract of land, determine the marketing of the property, develop the building program and design, obtain the necessary public approval and financing, build the structure, and lease, manage, and ultimately sell it.

Developers work with many different counterparts along each step of this process, including environmental Planners, Landscape and Three-Dimensional Architects, Urban and City Planners, Engineers, Surveyors, Inspectors, Contractors, Leasing Agents and more.

Tilt-up, tilt-slab or tilt-wall is a type of building and a construction technique using concrete. It is a cost-effective building technique and efficient construction method.

In this method concrete elements [i.e. walls, columns, structural supports, etc] are formed on a concrete slab; usually the building floor, but sometimes a temporary concrete casting surface near the building footprint. After the concrete has cured, the elements are tilted from horizontal to vertical with a crane and braced into position until the remaining building structural components [roofs, intermediate floors and walls] are secured.

 

Tilt-up construction is a dominant method of construction throughout North America, several Caribbean nations, Australia, and New Zealand. It is not significantly used in Europe or the northern two thirds of Asia. It is gaining popularity in southern Asia, the Middle East, parts of Africa, Central and South America.

Concrete elements can also be formed at factories away from the building site. Tilt-up differs from prefabrication, or plant cast construction, in that all elements are constructed on the job site. This eliminates the size limitation imposed by transporting elements from a factory to the project site.

Division 3, Chapter 9. Contractors, Article 4. Classifications

7057. (a) Except as provided in this section, a general building contractor is a contractor whose principal contracting business is in connection with any structure built, being built, or to be built, for the support, shelter, and enclosure of persons, animals, chattels, or movable property of any kind, requiring in its construction the use of at least two unrelated building trades or crafts, or to do or superintend the whole or any part thereof.

This does not include anyone who merely furnishes materials or supplies under Section 7045 without fabricating them into, or consuming them in the performance of the work of the general building contractor.

(b) A general building contractor may take a prime contract or a subcontract for a framing or carpentry project. However, a general building contractor shall not take a prime contract for any project involving trades other than framing or carpentry unless the prime contract requires at least two unrelated building trades or crafts other than framing or carpentry, or unless the general building contractor holds the appropriate license classification or subcontracts with an appropriately licensed specialty contractor to perform the work. A general building contractor shall not take a subcontract involving trades other than framing or carpentry, unless the subcontract requires at least two unrelated trades or crafts other than framing or carpentry, or unless the general building contractor holds the appropriate license classification. The general building contractor may not count framing or carpentry in calculating the two unrelated trades necessary in order for the general building contractor to be able to take a prime contract or subcontract for a project involving other trades.

(c) No general building contractor shall contract for any project that includes the "C-16" Fire Protection classification as provided for in Section 7026.12 or the "C-57" Well Drilling classification as provided for in Section 13750.5 of the Water Code, unless the general building contractor holds the specialty license, or subcontracts with the appropriately licensed specialty contractor.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the first federal law designed to protect most U.S. employees from employment discrimination based upon that employee's [or applicant's] race, color, religion, sex, or national origin [Public Law 88-352, July 2, 1964, 78 Stat. 253, 42 U.S.C. Sec. 2000e et. seq.]. The Title also established the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to assist in the protection of U.S. employees from discrimination.

Equal employment opportunity was further enhanced when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Executive Order 11246 on September 24, 1965, created to prohibit federal contractors from discriminating against employees on the basis of race, sex, creed, religion, color, or national origin.

Along with those five protected classes, more recent statutes have listed other traits as "protected classes," including the following:

The Age Discrimination Act has protected those aged 40 and over, but does not protect those under the age of 40.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 protects individuals who possess, or are thought to possess, a wide range of disabilities, ranging from paraplegia to Down Syndrome to autism. However, it does not force an employer to employ a worker whose disability would create an "undue hardship" onto his business [e.g. a paraplegic cannot work on a construction site, and a blind person cannot be a chauffeur]. Similar protections have been in place for Federal employees and customers of Federal agencies and contractors since 1973 under the Rehabilitation Act.

The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 forbids discrimination on the basis of family history and genetic information.

The Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 forbids discrimination on the grounds of a worker's military history, including any effects that the battlefield might have had on the worker's psyche.

Twelve states, over one hundred local governments, and the District of Columbia have passed statutes that forbid discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; also, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act would allegedly make sexuality a protected class, but this bill has yet to pass Congress.

The executive order also required contractors to implement affirmative action plans to increase the participation of minorities and women in the workplace. Pursuant to federal regulations, affirmative action plans must consist of an equal opportunity policy statement, an analysis of the current work force, identification of problem areas, the establishment of goals and timetables for increasing employment opportunities, specific action-oriented programs to address problem areas, support for community action programs, and the establishment of an internal audit and reporting system.

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION

Structural engineering is a field of engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads. Structural engineering is usually considered a specialty within civil engineering, but it can also be studied in its own right. Structural engineers are most commonly involved in the design of buildings and large non building structures however they can also be involved in the design of machinery, medical equipment, vehicles or any item where structural integrity affects the item's function or safety.

 


STUDY CREDIT

Structural engineers must ensure their designs satisfy given design criteria, predicated on safety [e.g. structures must not collapse without due warning] or serviceability and performance [e.g. building sway must not cause discomfort to the occupants. Buildings are made to endure massive loads as well as changing climate and natural disasters.

Structural engineering theory is based upon physical laws and empirical knowledge of the structural performance of different landscapes and materials. Structural engineering design utilizes a relatively small number of basic structural elements to build up structural systems that can be very complex. Structural engineers are responsible for making creative and efficient use of funds, structural elements and materials to achieve these goals0.

Structural engineers are responsible for engineering design and analysis. Entry-level structural engineers may design the individual structural elements of a structure, for example the beams, columns, and floors of a building. More experienced engineers would be responsible for the structural design and integrity of an entire system, such as a building.

Structural engineers often specialize in particular fields, such as bridge engineering, building engineering, pipeline engineering, industrial structures, or special mechanical structures such as vehicles or aircraft.

Structural engineering has existed since humans first started to construct their own structures. It became a more defined and formalized profession with the emergence of the architecture profession as distinct from the engineering profession during the industrial revolution in the late 19th century. Until then, the architect and the structural engineer were usually one and the same - the master builder. Only with the development of specialised knowledge of structural theories that emerged during the 19th and early 20th centuries did the professional structural engineer come into existence.

The role of a structural engineer today involves a significant understanding of both static and dynamic loading, and the structures that are available to resist them. The complexity of modern structures often requires a great deal of creativity from the engineer in order to ensure the structures support and resist the loads they are subjected to. A structural engineer will typically have a four or five year undergraduate degree, followed by a minimum of three years of professional practice before being considered fully qualified.

Structural engineers are licensed or accredited by different learned societies and regulatory bodies around the world (for example, the Institution of Structural Engineers in the UK). Depending on the degree course they have studied and/or the jurisdiction they are seeking licensure in, they may be accredited [or licensed] as just structural engineers, or as civil engineers, or as both civil and structural engineers.

 

CIVIL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.

Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering.

Civil engineering is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, geophysics, geodesy, control engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, earth science, atmospheric sciences, forensic engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, offshore engineering, quantity surveying, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering.

Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector from municipal through to national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

In general, civil engineering is concerned with the overall interface of human created fixed projects with the greater world. General civil engineers work closely with surveyors and specialized civil engineers to fit and serve fixed projects within their given site, community and terrain by designing grading, drainage, pavement, water supply, sewer service, electric and communications supply, and land divisions.

General engineers spend much of their time visiting project sites, developing community consensus, and preparing construction plans. General civil engineering is also referred to as site engineering, a branch of civil engineering that primarily focuses on converting a tract of land from one usage to another. Civil engineers typically apply the principles of geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and construction engineering to residential, commercial, industrial and public works projects of all sizes and levels of construction.

 

CIVIL ENGINEERING SUB-DISCIPLINE DISCUSSION
CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING

Construction engineering is a professional discipline that deals with the designing, planning, construction, and management of infrastructures such as highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams, and utilities. Construction Engineers are unique such that they are a cross between civil engineers and construction managers.

Construction engineers learn the designing aspect much like civil engineers and construction site management functions much like construction managers.

The primary difference between a construction engineer and a construction manager is that the construction engineer has the ability to sit for the Professional Engineer license [PE] whereas a construction manager cannot. At the educational level, construction managers are not as focused on design work as they are on construction procedures, methods, and people management. Their primary concern is to deliver a project on time, within budget, and of the desired quality.

The difference between a construction engineer and civil engineer is only at the educational level as both disciplines are able to sit for the PE exam giving them the same title of engineer. Civil engineering students concentrate more on the design work, gearing them toward a career as a design professional. This essentially requires them to take a multitude of design courses. Construction engineering students take design courses as well as construction management courses. This allows them to understand both the design functions as well as the building requirements needed to design and build today's infrastructures.

FIRE SPRINKLER BACKFLOW WATER  /  CROSS CONNECTION PREVENTION

The term cross-connection refers to a condition where the public water system is exposed to contamination through a service connection to a private plumbing system or other source. Such contamination could occur if a private pump were to force water back into the public water system. This example is called back-pressure.

Another condition, called back-siphonage, may occur when a water main breaks, or even under fire-fighting demands. In these situations, normal water pressure in the mains may turn to suction that can draw water from a private system into the public system. In this event, even a simple garden hose that may be filling a swimming pool or in a backyard pond can become a source of potential contamination.

As a precaution against potential cross-connections, the Otay Water District requires a certified back-flow prevention assembly be installed on all non-residential water service connections and any residential service where an on-site well or booster pumping system is in place.

OTAY WATER DISTRICT ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS

PHILOSOPHY

The Otay Water District is committed to conducting our business in accordance with all applicable environmental laws, regulations, and permits and to protecting the rich and varied environmental resources within our boundary.

 

THE PROGRAM

The District has a comprehensive environmental program that is proactive in response to environmental compliance and protection of public resources. The District is located in an area of high environmental sensitivity. There are many areas within our one hundred twenty-five [125] square miles of service area that are undeveloped and contain significant environmental resources.

All of our construction projects and on-going activities are subject to environmental scrutiny.

 

OTAY WATER DISTRICT PLANNING PROCESS AND DOCUMENTS

The District’s comprehensive planning process ensures compliance with environmental regulations. There are several important documents which set forth the District’s planning and associated environmental efforts. These documents are the Water Resources Master Plan [WRMP] and its Programmatic Environmental Impact Report [WRMP PEIR].

The Otay Water District's Water Resources Master Plan [WRMP] outlines a comprehensive program for the orderly and phased development of potable and recycled water supply, storage, transmission, and distribution through ultimate build out of the land within the District, according to local land use approvals and planning.

The projects in the WRMP consist mostly of pipelines, reservoirs, and pump stations that are needed based on population projections, District criteria for the adequacy of facilities, and specific project development plans in the District's service area. District planning is dynamic, and land use decisions by local jurisdictions [the city of Chula Vista, the city of San Diego and the county of San Diego] affect the size, location, and even the need for District facilities.

The District's planning is continually being adjusted for such factors, and the WRMP is formally updated at five to seven year intervals to reflect the most current land use information. The most recent update was completed in 2009 by the engineering firm, PBS&J. In conjunction with the preparation of the latest WRMP, a Programmatic Environmental Impact Report [WRMP PEIR] was prepared, also by PBS&J. The WRMP PEIR considered the potential environmental effects of implementing the WRMP. This document sets the criteria for the mitigation of impacts that could be reasonably anticipated for each of the projects and identifies the need for further studies where applicable. The issues examined in the WRMP PEIR included land use, noise, geology and soils, paleontology, biology, archaeological and historical resources, land form alteration and aesthetics, public safety and circulation, air quality/climate change, and water resources. For projects specifically identified as within its scope, the WRMP PEIR will be used by the District to streamline environmental review.

 

WHAT IS OTAY?

Otay Water District was created in 1956 by a small group of private citizens, ranchers and landowners who were concerned about the declining quality and quantity of water from their rural wells. More than fifty-five years later, the small public agency they formed in order to gain access to imported water is serving the needs of more than 211,000 people.

Otay Water District is a California Special District, authorized by the State Legislature under the Municipal Water District Act of 1911. Its ordinances, policies, taxes and rates for service are set by five directors, elected by voters in five divisions to serve alternating four-year terms on the governing board. The Board of Directors typically meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 3:30 p.m. at 2554 Sweetwater Springs Boulevard, Spring Valley. The public is invited to attend these meetings.

The District is a “revenue-neutral” public agency.  This means each end user pays his or her fair share of the costs of water acquisition and the operation and maintenance of the public water facilities.

The District also owns and operates a wastewater collection and treatment system, providing public sewer service to approximately 4,200 customer accounts within the Jamacha drainage basin. At the heart of this system is the Ralph W. Chapman Water Recycling Facility located in Rancho San Diego. Every day, the Chapman facility produces up to 1.1 million gallons (MGD) of high-quality recycled water. In addition, up to 6 MGD of recycled water is purchased from the city of San Diego’s South Bay Water Reclamation Plant. Through a dedicated pipeline system, the recycled water is transported into the eastern Chula Vista area where it is used to irrigate golf courses, elementary and high school playing fields, public parks, and road.

 

IS THE OTAY WATER SAFE TO DRINK?

Yes. All of the water Otay delivers is subjected to highly-advanced water treatment methods and technologies. Your water is continually tested at the treatment plants and at points in the distribution system to ensure its quality to the tap.

Our annual Consumer Confidence Report of water quality lists the results of these tests and is forwarded to your home or business in July of each year. A copy of this report is available from this web site.  Please call 619.670.2222 if you would like a copy of the most recent Consumer Confidence Report mailed to you.

Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and parents of infants should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.

MAQUILADORA

A maquiladora [Spanish pronunciation] or maquila is the Mexican name for manufacturing operations in a free trade zone [FTZ], where factories import material and equipment on a duty-free and tariff-free basis for assembly, processing, or manufacturing and then re-export the assembled, processed and/or manufactured products, sometimes back to the raw materials' country of origin.

Currently about 1.3 million Mexicans are employed in one or more of approximately 3,000 maquiladoras.

The term maquiladora, in the Spanish language, refers to the practice of millers charging a maquila, or "miller's portion" for processing other people's grain.

 

BRIEF MAQUILA HISTORY

In 1964, the Bracero Program, which allowed Mexican agricultural workers to work legally in the United States on a seasonal basis, came to an end. Less than a year after the end of the Bracero Program, the Mexican Government launched the Border Industrialization Program [BIP] or the Maquiladora Program, to solve the problem of rising unemployment along the border.

The maquiladoras became attractive to the US firms due to availability of reasonable priced labor, devaluations of peso and favorable changes in the US customs laws. In 1985 maquiladoras overtook tourism as the largest source of foreign exchange, and after 1996 has been the second largest industry in Mexico behind the petroleum industry.

The North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA] [1994] favorably impacted the growth of maquila plants. During the five [5] years before NAFTA, the maquila employment had grown at the rate of forty-seven [47%] percent; this figure increased to eighty-six [86%] percent in the next five [5] years.

The number of maquila plants grew from about 2700 to about 3700 in 2001. In the 1970s, most maquiladoras were located around the Mexico – United States border. By 1994, these were spread in the interior parts of the country, although majority of the plants were still near the border.

Although the maquiladora industry suffered due to the early 2000s recession, maquiladoras constituted fifty-four [54%] percent of the US-Mexico trade in 2004, and by 2005, the maquiladora exports accounted for half of Mexico's exports. The industry had become an important source of FDI and foreign exchange for Mexico.

In the 2000s, the maquila industry faced competition due to rise of other countries with availability of cheap labor, including Malaysia, India, and Pakistan. The biggest threat came from China's Special Economic Areas.

 

MAQUILADORA GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

During the later half of the sixties, maquiladora industries rapidly expanded both geographically and economically and by 1985, had become Mexico’s second largest source of income from foreign exports, behind oil.

Since 1973, maquiladoras have also accounted for nearly half of Mexico’s export assembly. Between 1995 and 2000, exports of assembled products in Mexico tripled, and the rate of the industry’s growth amounted to about one [1] new factory per day. By the late twentieth century, the industry accounted for approximately twenty-five [25%] percent of Mexico’s gross domestic product [GDP], and seventeen [17%] percent of total Mexican employment.

Since globalization and physical restructuring have contributed to the competition and advent of low-cost offshore assembly in places like China, and countries in Central America, maquiladoras in Mexico have been on the decline since 2000: According to federal sources, approximately 529 maquiladoras shut down and investment in assembly plants decreased by 8.2 percent in 2002.

Despite the decline, there still exist over 3,000 maquiladoras along the 2,000 mile-long United States–Mexico border, providing employment for approximately one million [1,000,000] workers, and importing more than fifty-one [$51b] billion in supplies into Mexico.

As of 2006, maquiladoras still account for forty-five [45%] percent of Mexico’s exports. Maquiladoras, in general, are best represented among operations that are particularly assembly intensive.

 

MAQUILA WORKING CONDITIONS

One of the main goals of the Border Industrialization Program was to attract foreign investment. To do that, Mexican labor is kept competitive with other major export countries to keep the United States firms operating within the Mexican assembly plants.

Unfortunately, Mexican women work for approximately one-sixth of the U.S. hourly rate. Employee turnover is also relatively high, reaching up to eighty [80%] percent in some maquiladoras, due in part to stress and health threats common to this type of labor.

A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil when there is a desired change in ground elevation that exceeds the angle of repose of the soil.

A basement wall is thus one kind of retaining wall. But the term usually refers to a cantilever retaining wall, which is a freestanding structure without lateral support at its top. These are cantilevered from a footing and rise above the grade on one side to retain a higher level grade on the opposite side. The walls must resist the lateral pressures generated by loose soils or, in some cases, water pressures.

Every retaining wall supports a “wedge” of soil. The wedge is defined as the soil which extends beyond the failure plane of the soil type present at the wall site, and can be calculated once the soil friction angle is known. As the setback of the wall increases, the size of the sliding wedge is reduced. This reduction lowers the pressure on the retaining wall.

The most important consideration in proper design and installation of retaining walls is to recognize and counteract the tendency of the retained material to move downslope due to gravity. This creates lateral earth pressure behind the wall which depends on the angle of internal friction [phi] and the cohesive strength (c) of the retained material, as well as the direction and magnitude of movement the retaining structure undergoes.


Lateral earth pressures are zero at the top of the wall and - in homogenous ground - increase proportionally to a maximum value at the lowest depth. Earth pressures will push the wall forward or overturn it if not properly addressed. Also, any groundwater behind the wall that is not dissipated by a drainage system causes hydrostatic pressure on the wall. The total pressure or thrust may be assumed to act at one-third from the lowest depth for lengthwise stretches of uniform height.

Unless the wall is designed to retain water, It is important to have proper drainage behind the wall in order to limit the pressure to the wall's design value. Drainage materials will reduce or eliminate the hydrostatic pressure and improve the stability of the material behind the wall. Drystone retaining walls are normally self-draining.

As an example, the International Building Code [IBC] requires retaining walls to be designed to ensure stability against overturning, sliding, excessive foundation pressure and water uplift; and that they be designed for a safety factor of 1.5 against lateral sliding and overturning.

BLACK RUBBER DOCK BUMPER

Bluff laminated dock bumpers provide protection against truck and trailer damage to docks, buildings and cargo. Laminated rubber dock bumpers have unlimited applications in factories, warehouses, and loading docks.

These economical dock bumpers are the very best choice for most loading dock applications.

Nylon reinforced rubber truck tire material provides protection both for truck beds and for dock surfaces.

4-1/2” or 6” depths absorb most of the impact and provides the correct spacing between dock and truck for best access.


Rubber Dock Bumpers can also be used anywhere in the plant to keep machinery from damaging property or equipment.

Made from nylon reinforced rubber truck tires, the dock bumpers are cut into exact size and captured between two 3”x3”x1/4” structural steel angle. The rubber pads are compressed and the angles are attached with two ¾” bolts. This makes for a very rugged and dense block that can absorb shock, not allowing that shock to damage the dock face or truck bed.

Trucks not only impact the dock when they back into position but also scrub up and down as the loading process continues. Properly installed these dock bumpers will always present the “grain” [laminated pieces] vertical thereby allowing the up and down movement without catching. It is sometimes necessary to accommodate a wide variety of equipment and a pattern of these dock bumpers can do that. Anchors not included. Listed width is to center of mounting hole.

Concrete tilt-up walls can be very heavy, as much as 300,000 pounds or more. Most tilt-up wall panels are engineered to work with the roof structure and/or floor structures to resist all forces, that is to function as load-bearing walls. The connections to the roof and floors are usually steel plates with headed studs that were secured into the forms prior to concrete placement. These attachment points are bolted or welded. The upper attachment points are made to the roof trusses. Interior walls may be present for additional stiffness in the building structure as necessary, known as shear walls.

Insulation can be applied to either side of the panels or cast as an integral part of the panel between two layers of concrete to create sandwich panels. Concrete has the ability to absorb and store energy and is high mass, which regulates interior temperature [thermal mass] and provides soundproofing and durability

Like all concrete construction, tilt-up buildings are fire-resistant. In addition, wall panels can be designed to sag inward when damaged, which minimizes collapse [this can also be done with prefabricated panels].

 

BEHAVIOR OF REINFORCED CONCRETE

MATERIALS

Concrete is a mixture of Coarse [stone or brick chips] and Fine [generally sand or crushed stone] aggregates with a binder material[usually Portland cement]. When mixed with a small amount of water, the cement hydrates to form microscopic opaque crystal lattices encapsulating and locking the aggregate into a rigid structure.

Typical concrete mixes have high resistance to compressive stresses [about 4,000 psi (28 MPa)]; however, any appreciable tension[e.g., due to bending] will break the microscopic rigid lattice, resulting in cracking and separation of the concrete. For this reason, typical non-reinforced concrete must be well supported to prevent the development of tension.

If a material with high strength in tension, such as steel, is placed in concrete, then the composite material, reinforced concrete, resists not only compression but also bending and other direct tensile actions. A reinforced concrete section where the concrete resists the compression and steel resists the tension can be made into almost any shape and size for the construction industry.

 

MATERIALS KEY CHARACTERISTICS

Three physical characteristics give reinforced concrete its special properties.

First, the coefficient of thermal expansion of concrete is similar to that of steel, eliminating large internal stresses due to differences in thermal expansion or contraction.

Second, when the cement paste within the concrete hardens this conforms to the surface details of the steel, permitting any stress to be transmitted efficiently between the different materials. Usually steel bars are roughened or corrugated to further improve the bond or cohesion between the concrete and steel.

Third, the alkaline chemical environment provided by the alkali reserve [KOH, NaOH] and the portlandite[calcium hydroxide] contained in the hardened cement paste causes a passivating film to form on the surface of the steel, making it much more resistant to corrosion than it would be in neutral or acidic conditions. When the cement paste exposed to the air and meteoric water reacts with the atmospheric CO2, portlandite and the Calcium Silicate Hydrate [CSH] of the hardened cement paste become progressively carbonated and the high pH gradually decreases from 13.5 – 12.5 to 8.5, the pH of water in equilibrium with calcite[calcium carbonate] and the steel is no longer passivated.

As a rule of thumb, only to give an idea on orders of magnitude, steel is protected at pH above ~11 but starts to corrode below ~10 depending on steel characteristics and local physico-chemical conditions when concrete becomes carbonated. Carbonation of concrete along with chloride ingress are amongst the chief reasons for the failure of reinforcement bars in concrete.

The relative cross-sectional area of steel required for typical reinforced concrete is usually quite small and varies from one [1%] percent for most beams and slabs to six [6%] percent for some columns.

Reinforcing bars are normally round in cross-section and vary in diameter. Reinforced concrete structures sometimes have provisions such as ventilated hollow cores to control their moisture & humidity.

Distribution of concrete (in spite of reinforcement) strength characteristics along the cross-section of vertical reinforced concrete elements is inhomogeneous.

SITE SPECIFIC TILT-UP CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS

Tilt-up construction requires significant organization and collaboration on the building site. Following are the chronological steps that need to be taken for a tilt-up project: site evaluation, engineering, footings and floor slabs, forming tilt-up panels, steel placement, embeds and inserts, concrete placement, panel erection and panel finishing.

Once the pad [casting surface or floor slab] has cured, forms are built on top. Dimensional lumber, a high quality plywood or fiber board that has at least one smooth face is typically used, although aluminum or steel forms can also be used. Carpenters work off engineered drawings designed for each panel or element to construct on site. They incorporate all door and window openings, as well as architectural features and other desired shapes that can be molded into the concrete. Studs, gussets and attachment plates are located within the form for embedding in the concrete. The forms are usually anchored to the casting surface with masonry nails or otherwise adhered to prevent damage to the floor slab.

Next, a chemically reactive bondbreaker is sprayed on the form's surfaces to prevent the cast concrete from bonding with the slab. This allows the cast element to separate from the casting surface once it has cured. This is a critical step, as improper chemical selection or application will prevent the lifting of the panels, and will entail costly demolition and rework.

A rebar grid is constructed inside the forms, after the form release is applied, spaced off the casting surface the desired distance with plastic "chairs". The rebar size and spacing is generally specified by the engineer of record.

Concrete is then placed, filling the desired thickness and surrounding all steel inserts, embedded features and rebar. The forms are removed when the concrete is cured, rigging is attached and a crane tilts the panel or lifts the element into place. In circumstances when space is at a premium, concrete elements can be cast one on top of the other, or stack cast. Quite often a separate casting pad is poured for this purpose and is removed when the panels are erected.

Cranes are used to tilt the concrete elements from the casting slab to a vertical position. The slabs are then most often set onto a foundation and secured with braces until the structural steel and the roof diaphragm is in place.

 

REPRESENTATIONAL ARCHITECTURAL FORM LINER APPLICATIONS

Concrete Form liners allows architects to incorporate a wide variety of textures and even unique graphic designs into bridges, walls, and other architecture without using expensive materials such as real stone or brick.

Though other materials are sometimes used, formliner is mainly made of either polyurethane or plastic. The entire process begins with the architect’s vision. Depending on the design, the creation of a master texture/mold may be necessary. Fortunately, Custom Rock has one of the largest libraries of texture patterns in the industry, including some of the most realistic stone textures in the industry. The versatility of our existing library combined with the skill of our artisan mold makers mean that we can change and customize our existing textures to fit your vision, or even create new textures to create a truly stunning project.

FIRE ACCESS ROADWAYS GENERAL POLIY
A-08-1
CFC SECTION 503

PURPOSE OF DISCUSSION

This policy clarifies San Diego Fire-Rescue Department's fire apparatus access roadway requirements as outlined in CFC 503 and California Vehicle Code Section 22500.1.

SCOPE OF FIRE ACCESS ROADWAYS GENERAL POLICY

Fire access roadways for new and existing buildings are regulated by this policy. Both public streets and private roadways fall under the scope of this policy.

WHERE ROADWAYS ARE REQUIRED

Buildings shall be accessible to emergency vehicle access. Fire apparatus access roadways shall be not less than twenty [20'] feet of unobstructed width; shall have an adequate roadway turning radius, and shall have a minimum vertical clearance of fifteen [15'] feet six [6"] inches or to thirteen [13'] feet six [6"] inches as per Development Services approval process.

Access roads shall be extended to within one hundred [150'] feet, two hundred [200'] feet in sprinklered buildings of all portions of the first story of the building served [as measured around the exterior of the building], and shall be in stalled with an all-weather driving surface.

All access, including bridges, shall support the imposed load of fire apparatus to withstand a minimum ninety-five thousand [95,000#] pound vehicle load.

Exceptions:

A.  Proposed surfaces other than concrete or asphalt shall be designed and installed in accordance with FPB Policy.

B.  For buildings and roadways legally in existence prior to the current code, private roadway widths less than 20 feet may be permitted to remain. The ability to conduct fire fighting operations will be the primary consideration in grandfathering these reduced roadway widths.

C.  Bridges legally in existence prior to this code shall suffice as access if such bridge was built according to the building standards in effect at that time. If the bridge will not safely support the imposed load of fire apparatus, the Chief is authorized not to operate fire apparatus over such bridge

D. These requirements may be modified when authorized by the Chief. The Chief may require installation of a fire access roadway when circumstances warrant.

 

RED CURBS / PARKING SIGNS

The required width of access roadways shall not be obstructed in any manner, including the parking of vehicles. Where no space is provided for parking along access roadways, they shall be kept clear by the posting of signs or the painting of curbs as follows:

 

Tom Edgemon Otay Mesa Commercial BTS Program, Fire Lane Accessibility Program, Edgemon California Contractor 274107, Site Planning & Specific Engineering, Environmental Planners TBNC Edgemon San Diego, California USA Edgemon

A. Owners or property representatives shall post the entrance to the required roadway with an approved sign. Sign shall read "NO PARKING FIRE LANE" in letters of one inch [1"] or greater in height.

Signs shall be placed every one hundred [100'] feet facing traffic at a height of seven [7'] feet. Requests for placement variations, alternative sign designs, or omission of signs shall be submitted in writing and must be approved by the Plans Officer.

 

RED CURBS / PARKING SIGNS EXCEPTIONS:

A.  Signs may be omitted on public streets.

B.  All curbs that outline the access roadway shall be painted red. White four [4"] inch high letters reading "No Parking - Fire Lane" shall be stenciled every thirty [30'] feet on the red curb. If no curb is present, an eight [8"] inch wide red stripe shall be painted on the pavement. The stripe shall be lettered the same as a curb.

Exception: Red fire lane curbs on public streets do not require the white stenciled lettering.

C. Signs, red curbing, and white lettering shall be maintained to ensure visibility.

 

NOTE: San Diego Fire-Rescue recommends that signs as well as red curbs with white lettering be provided.

A fire extinguisher, flame extinguisher, or simply an extinguisher, is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user [i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.], or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire department. Typically, a fire extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire.

In the United States, fire extinguishers in all buildings other than houses are generally required to be serviced and inspected by a Fire Protection service company at least annually. Some jurisdictions require more frequent service for fire extinguishers. The servicer places a tag on the extinguisher to indicate the type of service performed [annual inspection, recharge, new fire extinguisher].

There are two main types of fire extinguishers: stored pressure and cartridge-operated. In stored pressure units, the expellant is stored in the same chamber as the firefighting agent itself. Depending on the agent used, different propellants are used.

With dry chemical extinguishers, nitrogen is typically used; water and foam extinguishers typically use air. Stored pressure fire extinguishers are the most common type.

Cartridge-operated extinguishers contain the expellant gas in a separate cartridge that is punctured prior to discharge, exposing the propellant to the extinguishing agent. This type is not as common, used primarily in areas such as industrial facilities, where they receive higher-than-average use. They have the advantage of simple and prompt recharge, allowing an operator to discharge the extinguisher, recharge it, and return to the fire in a reasonable amount of time. Unlike stored pressure types, these extinguishers use compressed carbon dioxide instead of nitrogen, although nitrogen cartridges are used on low temperature (-60 rated) models.

Cartridge operated extinguishers are available in dry chemical and dry powder types in the U.S. and in water, wetting agent, foam, dry chemical [classes ABC and B.C.], and dry powder [class D] types in the rest of the world.

Fire extinguishers are further divided into handheld and cart-mounted, also called wheeled extinguishers. Handheld extinguishers weigh from 0.5 to 14 kilograms [1.1 to 31 lb], and are hence, easily portable by hand. Cart-mounted units typically weigh more than 23 kilograms [51 lb]. These wheeled models are most commonly found at construction sites, airport runways, heliports, as well as docks and marinas.

BRIEF HISTORY

The first fire extinguisher of which there is any record was patented in England in 1723 by Ambrose Godfrey, a celebrated chemist at that time. It consisted of a cask of fire-extinguishing liquid containing a pewter chamber of gunpowder. This was connected with a system of fuses which were ignited, exploding the gunpowder and scattering the solution. This device was probably used to a limited extent, as Bradley's Weekly Messenger for November 7th, 1729, refers to its efficiency in stopping a fire in London.

The modern fire extinguisher was invented by British Captain George William Manby in 1818; it consisted of a copper vessel of three [3] gallons (13.6 liters) of pearl ash [potassium carbonate] solution contained within compressed air.

The soda-acid extinguisher was first patented in 1866 by Francois Carlier of France, which mixed a solution of water and sodium bicarbonate with tartaric acid, producing the propellant CO2 gas. A soda-acid extinguisher was patented in the U.S. in 1881 by Almon M. Granger. His extinguisher used the reaction between sodium bicarbonate solution and sulfuric acid to expel pressurized water onto a fire.

A vial of concentrated sulfuric acid was suspended in the cylinder. Depending on the type of extinguisher, the vial of acid could be broken in one of two ways. One used a plunger to break the acid vial, while the second released a lead stopple that held the vial closed. Once the acid was mixed with the bicarbonate solution, carbon dioxide gas was expelled and thereby pressurized the water. The pressurized water was forced from the canister through a nozzle or short length of hose.

The cartridge-operated extinguisher was invented by Read & Campbell of England in 1881, which used water or water-based solutions. They later invented a carbon tetrachloride model called the "Petrolex" which was marketed toward automotive use.

The chemical foam extinguisher was invented in 1904 by Aleksandr Loran in Russia, based on his previous invention of fire fighting foam. Loran first used it to extinguish a pan of burning naphtha. It worked and looked similar to the soda-acid type, but the inner parts were slightly different. The main tank contained a solution of sodium bicarbonate in water, whilst the inner container [somewhat larger than the equivalent in a soda-acid unit] contained a solution of aluminium sulphate. When the solutions were mixed, usually by inverting the unit, the two liquids reacted to create a frothy foam, and carbon dioxide gas. The gas expelled the foam in the form of a jet. Although liquorice-root extracts and similar compounds were used as additives (stabilizing the foam by reinforcing the bubble-walls), there was no "foam compound" in these units. The foam was a combination of the products of the chemical reactions: sodium and aluminium salt-gels inflated by the carbon dioxide. Because of this, the foam was discharged directly from the unit, with no need for an aspirating branchpipe (as in newer foam-compound types).

In 1910, The Pyrene Manufacturing Company of Delaware filed a patent for using carbon tetrachloride [CTC] to extinguish fires. The liquid vaporized and extinguished the flames by inhibiting the chemical chain reaction of the combustion process [it was an early 20th-century presupposition that the fire suppression ability of carbon tetrachloride relied on oxygen removal].

In 1911, they patented a small, portable extinguisher that used the chemical. This consisted of a brass or chrome container with an integrated handpump, which was used to expel a jet of liquid towards the fire. It was usually of one [1] imperial quart [1.1 ] or one [1] imperial pint [0.57] capacity but was also available in up to two [2] imperial gallons [9.1]) size. As the container was unpressurized, it could be refilled after use through a filling plug with a fresh supply of CTC.

THE RED COMET

Another type of carbon tetrachloride extinguisher was the fire grenade.

This consisted of a glass sphere filled with CTC, that was intended to be hurled at the base of a fire [early ones used salt-water, but CTC was more effective]. Carbon tetrachloride was suitable for liquid and electrical fires and the extinguishers were fitted to motor vehicles.

Carbon tetrachloride extinguishers were withdrawn in the 1950s because of the chemical's toxicity - exposure to high concentrations damages the nervous system and internal organs. Additionally, when used on a fire, the heat can convert CTC to phosgene gas, formerly used as a chemical weapon.

 

In the 1940s, Germany invented the liquid chlorobromomethane [CBM] for use in aircraft. It was more effective and slightly less toxic than carbon tetrachloride and was used until 1969. Methyl bromide was discovered as an extinguishing agent in the 1920s and was used extensively in Europe. It is a low-pressure gas that works by inhibiting the chain reaction of the fire and is the most toxic of the vaporizing liquids, used until the 1960s. The vapor and combustion by-products of all vaporizing liquids were highly toxic, and could cause death in confined spaces.

The carbon dioxide [CO2] extinguisher was invented [at least in the US] by the Walter Kidde Company in 1924 in response to Bell Telephone's request for an electrically non-conductive chemical for extinguishing the previously-difficult-to-extinguish fires in telephone switchboards. It consisted of a tall metal cylinder containing 7.5 pounds [3.4 kg] of CO2 with a wheel valve and a woven brass, cotton covered hose, with a composite funnel-like horn as a nozzle.

CO2 is still popular today as it is an ozone-friendly clean agent and is used heavily in film and television production to extinguish burning stuntmen. Carbon dioxide extinguishes fire mainly by displacing oxygen. It was once thought that it worked by cooling, although this effect on most fires is negligible. This characteristic is well known and has led to the widespread misuse of carbon dioxide extinguishers to rapidly cool beverages, especially beer.

In 1928, DuGas [later bought by ANSUL] came out with a cartridge-operated dry chemical extinguisher, which used sodium bicarbonate specially treated with chemicals to render it free-flowing and moisture-resistant. It consisted of a copper cylinder with an internal CO2 cartridge. The operator turned a wheel valve on top to puncture the cartridge and squeezed a lever on the valve at the end of the hose to discharge the chemical. This was the first agent available for large scale three-dimensional liquid and pressurized gas fires, and was but remained largely a specialty type until the 1950s, when small dry chemical units were marketed for home use. ABC dry chemical came over from Europe in the 1950s, with Super-K being invented in the early 60s and Purple-K being developed by the US Navy in the late 1960s.

In the 1970s, Halon 1211 came over to the United States from Europe, where it had been used since the late 40s or early 50s. Halon 1301 had been developed by DuPont and the US Army in 1954. Both 1211 and 1301 work by inhibiting the chain reaction of the fire, and in the case of Halon 1211, cooling class A fuels as well. Halon is still in use today, but is falling out of favor for many uses due to its environmental impact. Europe, and Australia have severely restricted its use, since the Montreal Protocol of 1987. Less severe restrictions have been implemented in the United States, the Middle East, and Asia.

 

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA STANDARDS

There is no official standard in the United States for the color of fire extinguishers, though they are typically red, except for class D extinguishers, which are usually yellow, and water, which are usually silver, or white if water mist.

Extinguishers are marked with pictograms depicting the types of fires that the extinguisher is approved to fight. In the past, extinguishers were marked with colored geometric symbols, and some extinguishers still use both symbols. The types of fires and additional standards are described in NFPA 10: Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers, 2010 edition.

Fire extinguishing capacity is rated in accordance with ANSI/UL 711: Rating and Fire Testing of Fire Extinguishers. The ratings are described using numbers preceding the class letter, such as 1-A:10-B:C. The number preceding the A multiplied by 1.25 gives the equivalent extinguishing capability in gallons of water.

The number preceding the B indicates the size of fire in square feet that an ordinary user should be able to extinguish. There is no additional rating for class C, as it only indicates that the extinguishing agent will not conduct electricity, and an extinguisher will never have a rating of just C.

 

MAINTENANCE OF FIRE EXTENQUISHERS

Most countries in the world require regular fire extinguisher maintenance by a competent person to operate safely and effectively, as part of fire safety legislation. Lack of maintenance can lead to an extinguisher not discharging when required, or rupturing when pressurized. Deaths have occurred, even in recent times, from corroded extinguishers exploding.

There is no all-encompassing fire code in the United States. Generally, most municipalities [by adoption of the International Fire Code] require inspections every thirty [30] days to ensure the unit is pressurized and unobstructed [done by an employee of the facility] and an annual inspection by a qualified technician.

Hydrostatic pressure testing for all types of extinguishers is also required, generally every five [5] years for water and CO2 models up to every twelve [12] years for dry chemical models.

Recently the National Fire Protection Association and ICC voted to allow for the elimination of the 30-day inspection requirement so long as the fire extinguisher is monitored electronically. According to NFPA, the system must provide record keeping in the form of an electronic event log at the control panel. The system must also constantly monitor an extinguisher’s physical presence, internal pressure and whether an obstruction exists that could prevent ready access. In the event that any of the above conditions are found, the system must send an alert to officials so they can immediately rectify the situation. Electronic monitoring can be wired or wireless.

 

REPRESENTATIONAL MAINTENANCE & RECORDING SCHEDULES

Basic Service:

All types of extinguisher require a basic inspection annually to check weight, correct pressure [using a special tool, not just looking at the gauge] and for signs of damage or corrosion, cartridge extinguishers are opened up for internal inspection & check weighing of the cartridge, labels are checked for legibility, where possible dip tubes, hoses and mechanisms checked for clear free operation.

Fire Extinguisher Extended Service:

Water, Wet Chemical, Foam & Powder extinguishers require every five [5] years a more detailed examination including a test discharge of the extinguisher and recharging; on stored pressure extinguishers this is the only opportunity to internally inspect for damage/corrosion. By recharging fresh agent is used as they all have a shelf life, even water goes foul inside an extinguisher;

Note: extinguishers should be percentage tested according to total number of units in any given area. Some extinguishers contain pressure in excess of 1.38 MPa [200 psi] and this internal pressure over periods of time affects each brand & make differently depending on their placement & location.

Fire Extinguisher Hardware Overhaul:

CO2 extinguishers, due to their high operating pressure, are subject to pressure vessel safety legislation and must be hydraulic pressure tested, inspected internally & externally and date stamped every ten [10] years. As it cannot be pressure tested a new valve is also fitted. If replacing any part of the extinguisher [valve, horn, etc.] with a part from another manufacturer then the extinguisher will lose its fire rating. This may invalidate insurance, as would incorrect or inadequate servicing if it were to be found.

OEM equipment must be used for replacement parts for the extinguisher to maintain its UL rating. If parts are unavailable, replacement is recommended, keep in mind extinguishers have a projected service life of about twenty-five [25] to thirty-five [35] years, although many are of such quality that they can outlast this, but realize that science is ever-changing, and something that was the best available 30 years ago may not be acceptable for modern fire protection needs.

Representational Vandalism and Extinguisher Site Protection:

Tom Edgemon Otay Mesa Commercial & Industrial Buildings Build-to-Suit Programs, Edgemon CA.CSLB Environmentakl Planners, Site Designers, Engineers & Construction managers, Otay Mesa, San Diego, California carlsbad USA Edgemon

Fire extinguishers are sometimes a target of vandalism in schools and other open spaces.

Extinguishers are occasionally, partially or fully discharged by a vandal, impairing the extinguisher's actual firefighting abilities.

In open public spaces, extinguishers are ideally kept inside cabinets that have glass that must be broken to access the extinguisher, or which emit an alarm siren that cannot be shut off without a key, to alert people the extinguisher has been handled by an unauthorized person if a fire is not present.

Tom Edgemon Otay Mesa Commercial & Industrial Buildiings & Site Development Program, TBNC-Edgemon Environmental Planners, Site Designers, Engineers & Environmental Planners, Edgemon Contractors 274107 CSLB california Edgemon, Otay Mesa, California USA

Fire extinguisher identification signs are small signs designed to be mounted near a fire extinguisher, in order to draw attention to the extinguisher's location [e.g. if the Extinguisher is on a large pole, the sign would generally be at the top of the pole so it can be seen from a distance].

Such signs may be manufactured from a variety of materials, commonly self-adhesive vinyl, rigid PVC and aluminum.

In addition to words and pictographs indicating the presence of a fire extinguisher, some modern extinguisher ID signs also describe the extinguishing agent in the unit, and summarize the types of fire on which it may safely be used.

Some public and government buildings are often required, by local legal codes, to provide an ID sign for each extinguisher on the site.

Similar signs are available for other fire equipment [including fire blankets and fire hose reels/racks], and for other emergency equipment [such as first aid kits].

 

Representational Placement of Fire Extinguisher Signs:

Most licensing authorities have regulations describing the standard appearance of these signs [e.g. text height, pictographs used and so on].

PROMOTIONAL MERCHANDISE


STUDY CREDIT

Promotional merchandise, promotional items, promotional products, promotional gifts, or advertising gifts, sometimes nicknamed swag or schwag, are articles of merchandise [often branded with a logo], used in marketing and communication programs. They are given away to promote a company, corporate image, brand, or event.

These items are usually imprinted with a company's name, logo or slogan, and given away at trade shows, conferences, and as part of guerrilla marketing campaigns.

 

PROMOTIONAL MERCHANDISE BRIEF HISTORY

The first known promotional products in the United States are commemorative buttons dating back to the election of George Washington in 1789. During the early 19th century, there were some advertising calendars, rulers, and wooden specialties, but there wasn’t an organized industry for the creation and distribution of promotional items until later in the 19th century.

Jasper Meeks, a printer in Coshocton, Ohio, is considered by many to be the originator of the industry when he convinced a local shoe store to supply book bags imprinted with the store name to local schools. Henry Beach, another Coshocton printer and a competitor of Meeks, picked up on the idea, and soon the two men were selling and printing bags for marbles, buggy whips, card cases, fans, calendars, cloth caps, aprons, and even hats for horses.

In 1904, twelve [12] manufacturers of promotional items got together to found the first trade association for the industry. That organization is now known as the Promotional Products Association International or PPAI, which currently has more than 7,500 global members. PPAI represents the promotional products industry of more than 22,000 distributors and approximately 4,800 manufacturers.

The UK & Ireland promotional merchandise industry formally emerged as corporate marketing became more sophisticated during the late 1950s. Before this companies may have provided occasional gifts, but there was no recognized promotional merchandise industry. The real explosion in the growth of the promotional merchandise industry took place in the 1970s. At this time an ever increasing number of corporate companies recognized the benefits gained from promoting their corporate identity, brand or product, with the use of gifts featuring their own logo. In the early years the range of products available were limited; however, in the early 1980s demand grew from distributors for a generic promotional product catalogue they could brand as their own and then leave with their corporate customers.

Distributor companies are experts in sourcing creative promotional products. Traditionally, to ensure that they had an effective manufacturer network, they kept themselves aware of the trade product ranges available by attending exhibitions across the world (namely the Trade Only National Show in the UK, PSI in Europe and the PPAI Show in Las Vegas, NV) & from mailings received from manufacturers themselves. In 2004 the way the trade sourced promotional products began to change with the launch an online trade sourcing service which united distributors with manufacturers worldwide. This service is purely for vetted trade promotional merchandise distributor companies & is not available to corporate end user companies.

By 2008 almost every distributor had a website demonstrating a range of available promotional products. Very few offer the ability to order products online mainly due to the complexities surrounding the processes to brand the promotional products required.

 

PROMOTIONAL MERCHANDISE SOURCING

Promotional merchandise is, in the main, purchased by corporate companies in USA, Canada, the UK & Ireland through promotional merchandise distributor companies. In the United States and Canada, these distributors are called "Promotional Consultants" or "promotional product distributors."

Distributors have the ability to source & supply tens of thousands of products from across the globe. Even with the advent and growth of the Internet this supply chain has not changed, for a few reasons:

Promotional products by definition are custom printed with a logo, company name or message usually in specific PMS colors.

Distributors help end-users gather artwork in the correct format and in some cases, distributors might create artwork for end-users. Distributors then interface with manufacturers, printers or suppliers, forwarding artwork in the correct format and correct size for the job. Since good distributors are well aware of several manufacturers' capabilities, they can save an end-user time and money searching for a printer or manufacturer who can produce and ship the end-user's products on time, on specification and in the required quantities.

Many distributors operate on the internet and/or in person. Many suppliers wish not to invest in the staffing to service end-users' needs, which is the purpose of merchandise distributor companies.

 

THE PRODUCT

Promotional merchandise is used globally to promote brands, products, and corporate identity. They are also used as giveaways at events, such as exhibitions and product launches. Promotional products can be used for non-profit organizations to promote their cause, as well as promote certain events that they hold, such as walks or any other event that raises money for a cause.

Almost anything can be branded with a company’s name or logo and used for promotion. Common items include t-shirts, caps, key chains, posters, bumper stickers, pens, mugs, or mouse pads. The largest product category for promotional products is wearable items, which make up more than 30% of the total. Eco-friendly promotional products such as those created from recycled materials and bamboo, a renewable resource, are also experiencing a significant surge in popularity.

Most promotional items are relatively small and inexpensive, but can range to higher-end items; for example celebrities at film festivals and award shows are often given expensive promotional items such as expensive perfumes, leather goods, and electronics items. Companies that provide expensive gifts for celebrity attendees often ask that the celebrities allow a photo to be taken of them with the gift item, which can be used by the company for promotional purposes. Other companies provide luxury gifts such as handbags or scarves to celebrity attendees in the hopes that the celebrities will wear these items in public, thus garnering publicity for the company's brand name and product.

Brand awareness is the most common use for promotional items. Other objectives that marketers use promotional items to facilitate include employee relations and events, tradeshow traffic-building, public relations, new customer generation, dealer and distributor programs, new product introductions, employee service awards, not-for-profit programs, internal incentive programs, safety education, customer referrals, and marketing research.

Promotional items are also used in politics to promote candidates and causes. Promotional items as a tool for non-commercial organizations, such as schools and charities are often used as a part of fund raising and awareness-raising campaigns. A prominent example was the livestrong wristband, used to promote cancer awareness and raise funds to support cancer survivorship programs and research.

 

PROMOTIONAL MERCHANDISE COLLECTING

Collecting certain types of promotional items is also a popular hobby. In particular, branded antique point of sale items that convey a sense of nostalgia are popular with collectors and are a substantial component to the antique industry.

 

PROMOTIONAL MERCHANDISE DISTRIBUTION

The giving of corporate gifts vary across international borders and cultures, with the type of product given often varying from country to country.

Promotional merchandise is rarely bought directly by corporate companies from the actual manufacturers of the promotional products. A manufacturer's expertise lies in the physical production of the products, but getting a product in front of potential customers is a completely different skill set and a complex process. Within the UK & Ireland promotional merchandise industry a comprehensive network of promotional merchandise distributor companies exist. A promotional merchandise distributor is defined as a company who "has a dedicated focus to the sale of promotional merchandise to end users". [An 'end user' is a corporate company or organization that purchases promotional merchandise for their own use.]

These distributor companies have the expertise to not only take the product to market, but are also to provide the expert support required. The unique aspect of promotional merchandise is that on most occasions the product is printed with the logo, or brand, of a corporate organization. The actual manufacturers rarely have the set up to actually print the item. Promotional merchandise distributor companies are expert in artwork and printing processes. In addition to this the promotional merchandise distributors also provide full support in processing orders, artwork, proofing, progress chasing & delivery of promotional products from multiple manufacturing sources.

STRUCTURAL STEEL

Structural steel is steel construction material, a profile, formed with a specific shape or cross section and certain standards of chemical composition and mechanical properties.

 

Structural steel shape, size, composition, strength, storage, etc., is regulated in most industrialized countries.

Structural steel members, such as I-Beams, have high second moments of area, which allow them to be very stiff in respect to their cross-sectional area.

While many sections are made by hot or cold rolling, others are made by welding together flat or bent plates; for example, the largest circular hollow sections are made from flat plate bent into a circle and seam-welded.

 

STANDARD STRUCTURAL STEELS USA

Steels used for building construction in the United States use standard alloys identified and specified by ASTM International. These steels have an alloy identification beginning with "A" and then two [2], three [3], or four [4] numbers.

The four-number AISI Steel Grades commonly used for mechanical engineering, machines, and vehicles are a completely different specification series.

 

BREIF STEEL v. CONCRETE DISCUSSION

As raw material prices fluctuate, often so does building design.

During times of lower steel prices, more steel and less concrete is used, and vice versa. Each set of vendors and users typically maintain national industry associations that advocate the use of its materials versus the other. However, both materials are typically used together. Concrete without steel reinforcement [usually ribbed round bars called rebar] crumbles under tensile loads. Steel on its own, without composite or reinforced concrete floors, is likewise not a preferred building method.

While rebar is almost always steel, it is not considered a structural steel and is described separately in the reinforcement bar and reinforced concrete discussions.

While both Steel Structures and Reinforced Concrete Cement [RCC] Structures have their pros and cons, the Steel Structures have better strength-to-weight ratios than RCC and can be easily dismantled. Steel Structures, which have bolted connections, can also be reused to some extent after dismantling.

FIRE RESISTANCE

Steel loses strength when heated sufficiently. The critical temperature of a steel member is the temperature at which it cannot safely support its load. Building codes and structural engineering standard practice defines different critical temperatures depending on the structural element type, configuration, orientation, and loading characteristics. The critical temperature is often considered the temperature at which its yield stress has been reduced to sixty [60%] percent of the room temperature yield stress.

In order to determine the fire resistance rating of a steel member, accepted calculations practice can be used, or a fire test can be performed, the critical temperature of which is set by the standard accepted to the Authority Having Jurisdiction, such as a building code. In Japan, this is below 400°C. In China, Europe and North America [e.g., ASTM E-119], this is approximately 1000–1300F [530-810C].

The time it takes for the steel element that is being tested to reach the temperature set by the test standard determines the duration of the fire-resistance rating. Heat transfer to the steel can be slowed by the use of fireproofing materials, thus limiting steel temperature. Common fireproofing methods for structural steel include intumescent, endothermic and plaster coatings as well as drywall, calcium silicate cladding, and mineral or high temperature insulation mineral wool blanket.

Concrete building structures often meet code required fire-resistance ratings, as the concrete thickness over the steel rebar provides sufficient fire resistance. However, concrete can be subject to spalling, particularly if it has an elevated moisture content.

Although additional fireproofing is not often applied to concrete building structures, it is sometimes used in traffic tunnels and locations where a hydrocarbon fuel fire is more likely, as flammable liquid fires provides more heat to the structural element as compared to a fire involving ordinary combustibles during the same fire period.

Structural steel fireproofing materials include intumescent, endothermic and plaster coatings as well as drywall, calcium silicate cladding, and mineral or high temperature insulation wool blankets. Attention is given to connections, as the thermal expansion of structural elements can compromise fire-resistance rated assemblies.

REINFORCED STRUCTURAL CONCRETE

STUDY CREDIT

Reinforced concrete is concrete in which reinforcement bars ("rebars"), reinforcement grids, plates or fibers have been incorporated to strengthen the concrete in tension.

It was invented by French gardener Joseph Monier in 1849 and patented in 1867.

The term Ferro Concrete refers only to concrete that is reinforced with iron or steel. Other materials used to reinforce concrete can be organic and inorganic fibres as well as composites in different forms. Prior to the invention of reinforcement, concrete was strong in compression, but weak in tension. Adding reinforcement crucially increases the strength in tension.

The failure strain of concrete in tension is so low that the reinforcement has to hold the cracked sections together.

For a strong, ductile and durable construction the reinforcement needs to have the following properties:

High strength
High tensile strain
Good bond to the concrete
Thermal compatibility
Durability in the concrete environment

In most cases reinforced concrete uses steel rebars that have been inserted to add strength.

In landscape architecture, a water feature is one or more items from a range of fountains, pools, ponds, cascades, waterfalls, and streams.

Before the 18th century they were usually powered by gravity, though the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon are described by Strabo as supplied by an Archimedean screw. Other examples were supplied with water using hydraulic rams.

Since the 18th century, the majority of water features have been powered by pumps. In the past, the power source was sometimes a steam engine, but in modern features it is almost always powered by electricity. There is an increasing range of innovative designs as the market becomes more established and people become more aware of alternate installation methods, such as solar power. The advantages of using solar power include environmental benefits, no electrical lines in the garden, and free energy.

In early modern Europe, fountains were found in the elaborate gardens of the mansions of the wealthy, and in modern times can be an element in urban design provided by the municipal authorities or public subscription.

MAQUILADORA USA ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS PERCEIVED
BRIEF COMMENTARY

Much of the perceived environmental damage, particularly in the border region of Mexico, are attributed to Mexico’s economic development strategies and intense industrialization.

The dense population of maquiladoras and the inability of Mexico’s environmental regulatory program to keep up with the rapid growth of the industry over the past quarter of a century have contributed to major environmental problems. Both the United States and Mexican governments claim to be committed to environmental protection, yet environmental policies have not always been enforced. Although the La Paz Agreement signed by Mexico and the United States in 1983 requires hazardous waste created by United States’ corporations to be transported back to the U.S. for disposal, some companies avoid paying disposal costs by dumping toxins and other waste into Mexico’s rivers or deserts. The United States Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] reports that only ninety-one [91] of the six hundred [600] maquiladoras located along the Texas-Mexico border have returned waste to the United States since 1987.

Mexico’s waste imports have nearly doubled in recent years, and most of this waste comes from the United States. In Mexico, some maquiladoras lack proper waste management facilities and the ability to clean up disposal sites, which is why some of the hazardous waste is illegally disposed of.

Environmental hazards associated with some maquiladoras include polluted rivers and contaminated drinking water. According to the Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy [SCERP], all streams and rivers in the border region have been ecologically devastated as a consequence of the maquila industry. Furthermore, the United States Geological Survey [USGS], the State of California, and the Imperial County Health Department have all asserted the New River, which flows from Mexicali near the border to the Salton Sea in California to be "...the dirtiest river in America."

Ongoing exposure to toxic wastes can contribute to health problems such as cancer, skin disease, hepatitis, and birth defects. Furthermore, Mexico does not have any laws requiring industries to publicize basic environmental data on their operations, and so Mexico does not keep a very accurate inventory of hazardous waste.

The Border 2012 plan devised by the EPA has an extensive plan to help with environmental issues along the U.S./Mexico border.

A representational food truck, mobile kitchen, mobile canteen, or gourmet catering truck is a mobile venue that transports and sells food and public benefit.

Some, including ice cream trucks, sell mostly frozen or prepackaged food; others are more like restaurants-on-wheels. Some may cater to specific meals, such as the breakfast truck, lunch truck or lunch wagon, and snack truck, kebab trailer [Uk], break truck or taco& burrito truck.

Gourmet Food Trucks [GFT] cater events [public functions and family festivities and celebrations. sporting events, carnivals, construction sites, etc.] where potential guests and customers gather, and places of regular work or study – college campuses, office complexes, industrial parks, auto repair shops, movie sets, military bases,and more  – where potential customers require regular meals or provisions. Food truck dining as a popular phenomenon has caught on in several U.S. and Canadian cities including Toronto, Hamilton, Vancouver, Washington, D.C., New York, Austin, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Calgary, and Tampa.

HISTORY OF GOURMET FOOD TRUCKS [GFT]

After the American Civil War, there was a mass expansion to move westward. The expansion created a large market for beef, specifically in Texas. Innovative cattlemen needed to herd cattle to parts of the country that did not have railroads which would mean they would be on the road for months at a time. The need to feed these cattlemen resulted in the creation of the chuckwagon.

The origin of the chuckwagon or food truck, stems from the "father of the Texas Panhandle," Charles Goodnight. In 1866, Goodnight, a cattle herder, realized how difficult it was to cook proper meals during cattle drives. With that, he took a sturdy old United States Army wagon and constructed interior shelving and drawers. He then stocked the wagon with tableware and utensils, spices and medical supplies, including castor oil and quinine. Heavy pots and pans were stashed on the lower shelves while food was kept on in the bed of the wagon. Food consisted of dried beans, coffee, cornmeal, and other easy to preserve food stuffs. There was no fresh fruit, vegetables, or eggs available and meat was not fresh unless an animal was injured during the run and therefore had to be killed. The meat they ate was greasy cloth-wrapped bacon, salt pork, and beef, usually dried or salted or smoked.

The wagon was also stocked with a water barrel and a sling to kindle wood to heat and cook food and so the chuckwagon was created.

By the 1890s, night lunch wagons, which catered to night-time workers, were a common sight in big cities like New York City. "The Owl" was the leading "brand" of night lunch wagon, and although they were entirely portable, many did such good business that they rarely moved.

Later versions of the food truck were mobile canteens which were created in the late 1950s. These mobile canteens were authorized by the U.S. Army and operated on stateside army bases.

Mobile food trucks have been around for years, serving construction sites and other blue collar professions.

In recent years the food truck resurgence was fuelled by a combination of post-recessionary factors. The construction business was drying up leading to a surplus of food trucks. Chefs from high-end restaurants were being laid off. So, for experienced cooks suddenly without work, the food truck seemed a clear choice.

URBAN POPULARITY & SIGNIFICANT GROWTH

Once more commonplace in the big cities of the eastern and western United States, food trucks recently have evolved to be found in both urban and rural areas of the U.S. In big cities of the U.S. the food truck traditionally provided a means for the on-the-go person to grab a quick bite at a low cost.

Food trucks are not only sought out for their afford ability but as well for their nostalgia; and their popularity continues to rise. Chicago is currently the only city in the United States which does not allow food trucks to cook on board so trucks are forced to cook in a commercial kitchen, wrap and label food and load it into a food warmer.

Chicago's food truck ordinance requires food trucks to park two hundred [200'] feet away from any restaurant and cannot sell for more than two [2] hours at one location.

ZAGAT RATED GOURMET FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL PHENOMINOM

The Gourmet Food Truck trend has grown as they are now being utilized at special events such as weddings, school dances, birthday parties, retirement parties, and public gatherings such as art festivals and movie nights. Food trucks are now even Zagat rated. Another thing to develop is the food truck festival phenomenon. These festivals are gatherings in which people can find their favorite trucks all in one place and as well provide a means for a variety of diverse cultures to come together and find a common ground over a love for food.

Due to an apparent combination of economic and technological factors combined with "street food" being "hip" or "chic," there has been an increase in the number of food trucks in the United States. A modern-day food truck isn't just an ordinary taco truck one might find at a construction site.

These gourmet trucks' menus run the gamut of ethnic and fusion cuisine. Often focusing on limited but creative dishes at reasonable prices, they offer customers a chance to experience food they otherwise may not. Finding a niche seems to be a path to success for most trucks. While one truck may specialize in outlandish burgers, another may serve only lobster rolls".

Food truck franchises began to form, catering to the public who were searching for these delicious gourmet treats. Gourmet Streets, one of the most respected food truck franchises in America became a huge sensation as a result of this gourmet revolution.

Gourmet Food Truck Rallies are also growing in popularity across the United States. On August 31, 2013, Tampa, Florida hosted the world's largest food truck rally with ninety-nine [99] trucks attending.

Additionally, the popularity of food trucks is leading to the creation of associations that protect and support their business rights, such as the Philadelphia Mobile Food Association.

MEDIA COVERAGE & SOCIAL APPLICATIONS

Tracking food trucks has become much less difficult. With the help of social media groups like Facebook and Twitter, a person can find where their favorite gourmet truck will be at any moment and get up to the minute updates on specials, new menu items and location changes.

In fact, it could be argued that these social media outlets were the biggest contributing factor to the success of the gourmet food truck. In addition to social media there are a number of food truck tracking programs for smart phones. Some cover specific geographical regions, and others work every where.

The GOURMET FOOD TRUCK phenomenon has gained national attention and can now be seen regularly on television. Both the Food Network's the Great Food Truck Race and its sister station the Cooking Channel's Eat St. feature food trucks and mobile food carts exclusively from all over the United States

After months of talk, a name change and lots of details to finalize, Clearfork Food Park is hopefully less than three [3\ weeks away from being Fort Worth's next food truck park.

Clearfork will be at 1541 Merrimac Circle, just off of I-30 and University.

Park operators plan to be open for lunch and dinner, seven [7] days a week with six [6\ to eight [8] trucks on weekdays and the ability to support up to twelve [12] for special events.

Several Fort Worth-based trucks have already committed to being at the park on a rotating basis, including Gepetto's Pizza, So-Cal Tacos and Fred's Wagon, all of whom have publicly announced their participation. Expect many more trucks from Fort Worth and Dallas to announce that they will be posting up at this park in the coming weeks.

One of the park owners, Grant Huff, reports that it will have almost an acre of parking spaces, a covered pavilion for dining and a permanent building. It will also feature "Fred's Bait Shop," run by Fred's Texas Cafe, as well as sales of beverages of all kinds. The park is adjacent to the Trinity Trail east of University Drive, and it sounds as if it considers itself an extension of the trail, incorporating grassy areas, trees and landscaping.
