Canadian developer bets big on comeback of cities

first_imgShare via Shortlink The site of its proposed project sits along Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue. A wave of development has brought a young population into the area, hence its nickname “Young and Eligible.”Oxford is no stranger to projects of such scale: It’s Related Companies’ partner on the 26-acre Hudson Yards megaproject on Manhattan’s Far West Side. In Toronto, Oxford is also building a convention center, offices, apartments and retail over railway tracks next to Rogers Centre, where the Blue Jays play.Still, the planned project comes at a time when city dwellers have been fleeing to the suburbs in droves. And many companies are reconsidering their real estate footprints after the success — and potential cost savings — of working from home.

UK North Sea needs £430bn for low-carbon energy transformation

first_img The UK has committed to net-zero emissions by 2050 (Credit: Wikimedia Commons/Erik Christensen) A £430bn spending drive is needed to transform the UK’s North Sea oil and gas industry into a low-carbon hub of integrated energy.The investment is needed to “close the gap” on critical technologies that will enable the industry to transition away from fossil fuels, including hydrogen, floating wind and digitisation.A report published today (16 September) by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) – an Aberdeen-based research and development organisation – says the right investment now could generate more than £2.5tn for the UK economy by 2050, and create more than 200,000 new jobs.North Sea hydrocarbons have been important to the Scottish and UK economies for decades, but with both countries now signed up to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 (2045 in the case of Scotland) there are big questions to be answered about how it will fit into a decarbonised future.“Reimagining the North Sea as an integrated energy system is essential for the UK and Scotland to achieve their net-zero ambitions,” said OGTC chief executive Colette Cohen. “But we need to invest now to close the gap on the key technologies needed to make this ambition a reality.“We need to digitise our offshore energy sector and solve big challenges like energy storage, infrastructure redeployment, transmission systems and cost-competitive floating wind structures. By doing this, we can create strategic advantage and valuable export opportunities.” Hydrogen will be central to decarbonisation strategyHydrogen fuel has been identified as a key technology for this process of transformation, with offshore wind able to produce green hydrogen – manufactured using exclusively renewable energy – and natural gas used alongside carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology able to produce blue hydrogen.Additionally, depleted oil and gas reservoirs beneath the sea floor – and the infrastructure that services them – can transport and store carbon emissions collected by CCS during industrial processes.At present, however, hydrogen production in the UK remains “close to non-existent” said Malcolm Forbes-Cable, vice president of upstream consulting at research group Wood Mackenzie, which contributed to the study.He added: “Hydrogen can be used in place of gas to heat homes and power engines and industrial processes, while reducing our carbon footprint. The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has set significant targets for a low-carbon hydrogen economy in the UK, but there are key technology challenges to overcome before hydrogen can be deployed on a vast scale.”UK trade groups have put pressure on policymakers in recent months to publish a dedicated hydrogen strategy that will accelerate development of the technology and deliver certainty to investors.Earlier this year, the Scottish government unlocked £62m to support the North Sea’s energy transformation, with hydrogen identified as a crucial funding opportunity.The OGTC paper recommends a range of hydrogen-related investments, including saltwater electrolysis technologies to lower the cost of green hydrogen, and innovative membranes and CO2 sorbents to increase blue hydrogen yield.Other areas of investment needed for clean offshore energy integration include the electrification of oil and gas platforms, flaring mitigation and methane-leak detection technologies. The Oil & Gas Technology Centre says investment into critical technologies like hydrogen and floating wind could generate £2.5tn for the UK economy by 2050center_img UK offshore expertise can deliver low-carbon energy in the North SeaOffshore wind has been a success story of the UK’s clean energy efforts, and building on this along the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) will be an important dimension of the North Sea’s transformation.The OGTC report calls for investment into larger turbine blades, taller towers and automated inspection technology for fixed offshore wind, as well as optimised and standardised foundation designs for floating offshore wind.The integration of existing offshore assets with clean technologies will allow some oil and gas infrastructure to be repurposed, as well as harnessing the expertise of a workforce that stands to be affected by the switch to low-carbon energy.Last month, the Oil and Gas Authority, a UK regulatory body, claimed such integration could deliver up to 30% of the country’s decarbonisation needs by 2050.Cohen said: “With its decades of energy expertise, the UK has a huge opportunity to become a leading manufacturer, designer, installer and operator of net-zero energy systems.“Leveraging our strength in oil and gas, we can also partner with the renewables sector to accelerate the delivery of the next generation of energy in the UK – and internationally. This is where governments and industry should focus investment at pace in the coming years.”Phil Kirk, chief executive of UK independent oil producer Chrysaor added: “The oil and gas industry in the UK has all of the competence, innovation and resources to deliver the engineering and technical solutions to fulfil the energy transition. As an industry, we are experts in solving problems and safely engineering solutions.”last_img read more

The website declined to do so.In December talks between it and Purplebricks broke down after allAgents’ Director of Business Development said the hybrid agent’s “business ethics are not in line with our own”.one-star reviewsOf the 11 reviews posted on the reviews website since the New Year, all bar one award Purplebricks one star out of five with comments ranging from “appalling” to “abysmal” about both the company’s lettings and sales operations.“Unlike some reviews sites we are an open platform, which means agents cannot control which customers are invited to post reviews,” the allAgents statement says.“Our reviews are entirely independent of any commercial arrangement we have with agents, and we have no commercial arrangement with Purplebricks.”Last month allAgents revealed that Purplebricks was the ‘worst rated one-star agency’ on its site.Read more about the Purplebricks vs allAgents battle.Purplebricks online reviews AllAgents February 5, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Little Pembroke gets big

first_imgPembroke College is to expand significantly in a building project which will add two new quads to its existing city centre site. Pembroke, currently one of Oxford’s physically smaller colleges, will have its main site increased by around 30 per cent. The large development will create a café, seminar rooms, art gallery, assembly room and an all-purpose auditorium, together with accommodation space for a whole year of Pembroke undergraduates. The work will include the demolition of a collection of buildings acquired by the college in recent years, including old industrial and retail sites to the south of Brewer street. These will be replaced by two new quads in the collegiate style, to be connected to the existing site by a footbridge over the street. The expansion has been made possible by a fundraising campaign called ‘Bridging Centuries’, through which the college has already raised £9 million out of a targeted £17 million of donations. It is part of Oxford University’s ‘Oxford Thinking’ campaign, which recently passed the £1 billion mark. The overall cost of the project is £29 million, the remainder of which will be provided by a bank loan. The development is the culmination of years of planning by the college. Giles Henderson, the Master of Pembroke, said, “It is no mere annexe we are building. This is a major extension of our main site which will benefit members of Pembroke and visitors for years to come.” Andrew Seton, Strategic Development Director at Pembroke, called the project “nothing short of transformational”. Mr Seton added, “Pembroke is a great community. It has not had the same facilities as other colleges. Our students deserve more than there are at the moment, and this lovely expansion will provide for that.” Students have expressed their enthusiasm for the plans, which will also provide a number of en-suite study bedrooms. Alex Joynes, a second-year student at Pembroke, said, “It’s all very exciting for us. For me, the most impressive plans are those for the art gallery and auditorium, which will really help to show Pembroke’s strong arts side.” A fundraising campaign is appealing to alumni and friends of Pembroke from across the Atlantic, with separate UK and US campaign boards which launched respectively in London and Washington DC last month. The college still needs a further £8 million of donations to ‘Bridging Centuries’ to enable on-time completion, intended for 2012.last_img read more

EAT secures new chilled distribution

first_imgSandwich retailer, EAT, which BB last August revealed had plans to double the number of outlets from 100 to 200 within three to five years, has revamped its chilled distributions to cope with worries over sudden failures in distribution of products to its stores.The move was in response to “the immediate risks threatening our distribution network,” says Guy Harvey, finance director for EAT. The chain, which operates its own central kitchen, distributes products overnight, to ensure maximum freshness, and serves sandwiches, salads, soup, pies and coffee through its retail outlets.Logistics consultancy Davies & Robson helped with the distribution tender to provide a system capable of ensuring a reliable chilled delivery service to stores. Davies & Robson worked with EAT to prepare a contingency plan that would allow the operation to continue uninterrupted in the event of the existing service being unexpectedly withdrawn.As a result, Gist was appointed to establish and operate a National Distribution Centre at its Hemel Hempstead facility. Pre-picked product is received from EAT’s central kitchen in Wembley and milk directly from a third-party supplier. Gist is responsible for sorting cages into vehicle routes and for picking the milk to cages against delivery outlet orders.Direct deliveries are made by Gist to EAT outlets in the south east while, for the remainder of the country, product is trunked to a national network with cross-docking facilities for onward delivery by local delivery vehicles. Deliveries to retail outlets are undertaken at night, using vehicles fitted with tail hoists to ensure the availability of fresh product when the stores open.last_img read more

The group has been touring nationally in support of heavyweights like Umphrey’s McGee, moe. and Papadosio, as well as playing numerous national and regional music festivals like The Peach Music Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival. They’ve certainly played shows in Colorado—like last year’s inaugural Canyon Jam at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre and a support slot during UM’s most recent New Year’s run—but Aqueous has yet to headline their very own high-profile show at one of the city’s historic venues. That all changes when Aqueous takes the stage at the Bluebird Theater on June 9th, 2018.“Denver is by far one of AQ’s favorite cities to play music in; Colorado just seems to totally get it, and some of our favorite sets of the past year have gone down out there,” shares guitarist and vocalist Mike Gantzer. “We’re gonna go really big for this Bluebird show, and we can’t wait to rage properly with the CO fans on this one!”Tickets go on sale this coming Friday, March 23rd at 10 a.m. MST. They can be purchased here.For more information about the Bluebird Theater performance or any of Aqueous’ other upcoming shows, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Students explore sustainable research, education opportunities

first_imgAny student who followed the green footprints in LaFortune Student Center ended up at this year’s Sustainability Undergraduate Research and Education Expo hosted by the Campus Coalition on Research and Education for Sustainability (CREST). This is the third annual event for the coalition, made up of the Environmental Change Initiative, the John J. Reilly Center, the Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame (ND Energy) and the sustainability minor, through which students found various opportunities for getting involved with sustainability on campus. Emma Farnan | The Observer “We hope students can get a better understanding of sustainable practices across campus,” managing director of ND Energy Ginger Sigmon said. As a result, the Expo brought together groups and organizations dealing with research, education, outreach, internships and resources, according to Sigmon. While most groups are Notre Dame-affiliated, there are a few external groups. This variety attracts students with all types of interests, she said. Freshman political science major Bennett Rogers attended the Expo to gather information, as he is looking into a minor in sustainability.“I want to do farm law,” Rogers said. “It’s my dream. I think it is important for me to have a background in sustainability, especially if I am going to work with farmers in the future.”Freshman Tommy Jegier said he came to the Expo because he is looking into a minor in energy studies, and because he was inspired by his earth focus class to learn more about sustainability.“I’m here because I’m passionate about helping the environment and getting involved,” he said. “This was a great place to get information.”According to sophomore Student Energy Board member Tansy Wang, students are encouraged to look at ways to be sustainable outside of research. Wang said the Board aims to emphasize ways to get involved with sustainability and to make renewable energy more of a prominent resolution.Rachel Novick, director of the minor in sustainability, said the minor, which has a mix of students that represent a good make-up of Notre Dame students, is a good resource for students to learn more about sustainability and renewable energy.“The goal of the sustainability minor is to have students develop as leaders and make change in whatever field they go into,” she said.
