To prioritize Why we unite will elevate our work and help our organizations thrive. The workplace is designed to foster company culture, reinforce values ​​and identity, support engagement and facilitate collaboration. Over the past few years, our world has adapted to learn how to manage business operations virtually, but the human elements have suffered. Relationship building and collegiality, mentorship, and celebration are just a few things people lack in remote work roles.

Jonathan Grefaldon of DLR Group

With so many competing factors affecting business functions and workplace design, DLR Group designers have found that direct interaction with stakeholders at all levels helps create clarity for making decisions. meaningful decisions. So how do we bring our teams together to help as the world continues to evolve and innovate?

To understand the real “why” of the workplace, we need to think about company values. To have meaningful discourse, workplace leaders need to explore and uncover the values ​​most important to the company. There is no prescriptive list that works for every organization, and in-depth discussions must be conducted to get to the essence of what the business stands for. Who are you as an organization? What is the main objective of your work? How do you best serve your customers? What are your growth plans?

Putting these elements on the table allows us to frame discussions around nine key areas:

  • Culture + Identity: A project can use design to celebrate its history and context. The construction of a strong sense of belonging often testifies to the identity of the occupants and the surrounding communities. Other aspects of culture and identity deal with inclusion and a sense of belonging which could lead to a discussion of organizational transformation and how the structures of your organization can change to support larger goals.
  • Health + Wellness: Project design can promote mental, physical, and emotional well-being and help users achieve their personal goals. There are several factors related to health and well-being: Is it important for your project to connect users directly to nature-related experiences? Does your project need to connect users to fitness-related activities or movements? Does your project promote healthy food choices or policies?
  • Impact of materials: Building materials impact human well-being, carbon emissions (both intrinsic and operational) and costs throughout the lifetime of the materials. How important would it be to promote material transparency around its ingredients or even where the material comes from? How do material choices in the built environment impact the local economy or ecosystems along the supply chain?
  • Energy + Water: A holistic approach to energy and water management includes reducing costs and consumption before working to add renewable energy generation to your project. Building systems play a critical role in achieving your project’s energy goals, and a discussion of system selection and maintenance is an essential piece of the energy puzzle. Water encompasses water quality, water and stormwater management practices, hydrological balance, and the context of water culture in a community. How can your project ensure a reliable water supply, regardless of circumstances or external systems? Would your project have a positive impact on greater connection to regional water systems? Finally, would it be important to know if the quality of your drinking water is safe and where it comes from?
  • Indoor environmental quality: The interior environment of a project has a direct correlation with the health and well-being of those who occupy the spaces there. The quality of the indoor environment is determined by many factors, including acoustics, thermal comfort, air quality and visual comfort.
  • Quality of the external environment: Projects can use their outdoor spaces to build community, restore ecology, and create a strong sense of place. One could think of how natural infrastructure could help mitigate flooding or filter air pollutants or reduce heat island impacts. What about your project that could improve the external environment not only for your project but also for your neighboring communities?
  • Elasticity: Intentional design and planning can support the ability of buildings, sites, individuals and communities to respond to, resist and recover from stressful or adverse situations. Resilience is rooted in identifying your vulnerabilities to climatic or man-made disturbances. How can you create a clear action plan for your organization for business continuity? What could be the economic impacts of a disruption and what do you need to plan for to ensure economic vitality in the face of unforeseen events? Finally, what aspect of your project should address individual resilience and support in stressful situations?
  • Access + Mobility: This encompasses transit-first design, providing transportation options, decarbonizing transportation, and improving walkability and safety. A potential example of this applied value could include electric car charging stations or programs focused on experiencing alternative transit options.
  • Purchasing + Operations: Projects can establish practices that support safety and security, efficient operations, supplier diversity, and responsible sourcing and disposal of assets. Procurement and operations are often the keys to linking larger project goals and ensuring their long-term success.

While these topics include elements of green design, it is important to consider sustainability holistically and in the context of other considerations. Determining sustainability priorities can help determine which third-party rating or certification system, if any (i.e. LEED, WELL, Fitwell, Living Building Challenge, Green Globes, etc.) is best for a landlord or renter.

As organizations move forward in their efforts to document and report on their progress on environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics, defining each of these priorities will create a roadmap to better results. organizational and more equitable individual outcomes.

Every company has its own diverse set of factors that drive professionals to return to work environments in one form or another. It is up to Workplace Leaders and Designers to convene corporate real estate decision makers and lead the conversation to ensure alignment on the fundamentals of a business and the reasons we come together.

3 crucial facts to understand the history of Juneteenth https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/3-crucial-facts-to-understand-the-history-of-juneteenth/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 08:13:05 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/3-crucial-facts-to-understand-the-history-of-juneteenth/ Last year, with the stroke of a pen, President Joe Biden signed into law the Juneteenth law as a national holiday. Some Americans were hearing the Juneteenth story for the first time. Others knew a very limited version of what happened in Galveston on June 19, 1865 – only that it celebrated the emancipation announcement. There’s a lot more to the story and it’s important that we tell a fuller story.

In November 2020, the Juneteenth Legacy Project was organized and formed a strategic partnership with the Nia Cultural Center, a longtime nonprofit organization in Galveston. One of the first goals of the partnership was to complete a 5,000 square foot mural highlighting the journey of freedom in Texas. Galveston residents and visitors to the island can use augmented reality to learn more about the story by scanning the mural using the Uncover Everything app.

With the help of Danny Asberry El, the historic landmarks of the Galveston Freedom Walk and the Juneteenth Mural were linked to videos. The videos create an outdoor classroom that expands the telling of Juneteenth’s story. Here are five examples of what you could learn:

1) United States Colored Troops were also known as the “Juneteenth Fathers of Freedom”. They predated the Buffalo Soldiers and were essential to Union victory in the Civil War. They were instrumental in spreading the message of freedom throughout Texas. In January 1866, General Philip Sheridan reported that he had 6,500 white soldiers in Texas and 19,768 black soldiers.

The horrors and confusion as the city’s restaurateurs wait for a concrete outdoor dining plan https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-horrors-and-confusion-as-the-citys-restaurateurs-wait-for-a-concrete-outdoor-dining-plan/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 23:56:00 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/the-horrors-and-confusion-as-the-citys-restaurateurs-wait-for-a-concrete-outdoor-dining-plan/

When the pandemic hit the city in March 2020, Frangos Peri Peri had been open in a narrow East Village storefront for just a few months.

More than two years later, the Portuguese chicken restaurant on Avenue B has managed to survive, but its orange wooden outdoor shed on the pavement is no more.

Owner Rosina Ishaq had set up sidewalk tables in June 2020, when former Mayor Bill de Blasio initially established outdoor dining as a lifeline for thousands of businesses hard hit by COVID-19 restrictions .

“It was a good idea from the city and it definitely helped the first year of business, 110%,” Ishaq told THE CITY. “If we couldn’t have seated people outside, we wouldn’t have survived.”

East Village restaurant Frangos is among dozens of restaurants forced to remove outdoor dining sheds for failing to follow city rules, June 7, 2022.

But she says a lack of official guidance has caused the outdoor space to rack up violations from an assortment of city agencies. Several months ago, the shed — which Ishaq said cost more than $7,000 to build and remove — had to be dismantled after it was found non-compliant in 21 inspections.

For Ishaq, it was symbolic of a process that she says hasn’t always been clear.

“There were no rules,” she said. “One day one person came to say one thing, the next day another person came to say something different.”

“Abandoned Wrecks”

At a city council hearing last month, Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez again credited the outdoor dining program with saving thousands of restaurants and more than 100,000 jobs by transforming streets and the sidewalks into places where cooped-up New Yorkers could dine and drink while getting relatively fresh air.

But at the same hearing, Councilman Justin Brannan (D-Brooklyn), whose neighborhood includes the popular restaurants and bars of Bay Ridge, said some of the structures looked like “abandoned shipwrecks.”

New York City has recovered about 75% of the jobs lost during the pandemic, THE CITY’s recovery tracker shows, but hard knocks from the restaurant industry continue to weigh on its recovery. The accommodation and food service industry’s employment rate is still down 17.5% from pre-pandemic levels, according to seasonally adjusted data from the Mayor’s Office of Management and Budget .

DOT records show that 12,448 applications from the Open Restaurants program have requested permission to set up outdoor seating since June 2020 – including nearly half in Manhattan, nearly 3,000 in Brooklyn and nearly 2,500 in Queens.

“It’s like an industry that suddenly popped up out of nowhere on June 22, 2020,” said Andrew Rigie, executive director of the New York City Hospitality Alliance, which represents restaurants and bars.

Rules and regulations for outdoor dining are still being developed.

As the city moves toward creating a permanent program, DOT data analyzed by THE CITY shows that inspections more frequently result in penalties for restaurant and bar owners.

In about 10% of inspections to date, inspectors have decided to slap owners with “cease and desist” notices, which essentially meant closing outdoor seating. But most of them only started accumulating after mid-2021.

SoHo Lola Taverna has had 24 instances of non-compliance with outdoor dining guidelines. May 6, 2022.

Interviews with residents and restaurateurs highlight lingering frustrations everywhere, with some calling for stricter enforcement of hours, cleanliness and parking.

“Outdoor sheds have made life here difficult on these fronts: parking, garbage cans, traffic jams,” said Trev Huxley, who lives next door to Patrizia’s, an Italian restaurant in Williamsburg.

“I still support open restaurants, but there needs to be some kind of ground rules, some enforcement, at least in cases where there’s a blatant disregard for civic life.”

Patrizia had to get rid of a 60ft by 8ft shed on the roadway at 35 Broadway in August after learning it was in a no-go zone. According to owner Antonio Alaio, the outdoor space helped him retain some of his employees as the restaurant began to focus more on deliveries.

“But soon people started complaining for no reason, people living in this block and the block on the other side,” Alaio told THE CITY. “I think they didn’t like the noise – that’s what we mostly heard from them.”

“Very forgiving”

The DOT, meanwhile, says it’s been easy for owners.

A spokesperson who declined to be named said the agency had been ‘very lenient’ on enforcement due to the restaurant industry still suffering from the pandemic and assessing how juggle application standards with the health and safety concerns of customers and the local community.

The DOT says it has conducted 7,401 inspections so far this year — which is expected to be lower than 2020, when the agency conducted 30,857 inspections in the first year of the pandemic, or all 25,577 checks in 2021.

Approximately 46% of inspections resulted in an establishment being labeled “compliant” or “ignored” because the seating arrangement did not require inspection.

Restaurant sheds on Mott Street near Bowery were still cool and bright on September 2, 2020.

Agency inspectors reported non-compliance with dozens of DOT requirements in about 20 percent of inspections. In the rest of the inspections, the DOT can put establishments on review, in a “pre-suspension” phase, or use other measures of evidence without violation.

To date, only 60 outdoor dining structures have been removed by the city, the DOT spokesperson said, most removed for being abandoned – including 17 removed after being damaged or destroyed by motor vehicles . Others had to go, the spokesperson said, to restaurants that “continually failed to follow the rules of the program.”

hungry waiting

The next phase of the Open Restaurants program — the city hopes to establish permanent rules and guidelines for sidewalk dining by fall — comes as restaurant owners have faced complaints about unsightly structures, garbage, rodents and the occupation of street parking spaces.

“It looks like you’re walking through the San Gennaro party, that’s how crowded it can get,” said East Village resident Marie Hart, 45, pointing to several sheds along Avenue B. “You’ve got your bike lane and you’ve got your driveway and your car lane – inside should be the restaurant lane.

City officials said few restaurants were bad neighbors.

“That percentage is a small minority,” Rodriguez said at the May City Council hearing that touched on outdoor dining. “The vast majority of restaurants, they take care of the structure.”

While DOT officials said the city has begun hiring planners, application reviewers, inspectors and outreach staff for the permanent program, implementation faces a lengthy process of legislation, design , licenses for seats on sidewalks and roadways and at least six months of awareness.

The DOT said it hopes a permanent open restaurant program can be in place by 2023, with rules that would include removing tables and chairs that are not in use, banning structures at several levels in streets and sidewalks and the prohibition of amplified sound on sidewalks and in pavement dining rooms.

Baker’s Pizza in the East Village received multiple violations for not following sidewalk shed rules. June 6, 2022.

“No one has taken the position that we shouldn’t have outdoor seating,” said Susan Stetzer, district manager for Manhattan Community Board 3, which includes the Lower East Side and part of Chinatown. “The problem has been sheds and rats, it has been about hours and amplified music.

“It’s not a black and white question.”

Rigie said many restaurants are on hold while the program’s application and costs take shape and most “won’t make a meaningful investment” in their current structures if they are subject to widespread changes.

“Right now the biggest issue is the uncertainty of the future schedule,” Rigie said. “Restaurants are waiting to hear what the standing guidelines will be to determine whether or not they should comply and whether to apply.”

As he sat outside a closed shed once used by a now-closed pizzeria on Avenue A, Dan Mauk, 69, said he hoped expanded outdoor dining would become a regular part of the post-pandemic city.

“I understand a lot of people live upstairs and have to listen to noise,” he said. “But this is New York – they bring a lot of life to the streets.”

A block away in Frangos, Ishaq said she wanted a “workable solution.”

“In this industry right now, we need all the help we can get,” she said. “Food costs are crazy, staff costs are crazy, we have to try to do business any way we can.”

Economic development and outdoor recreation two land purchase concerns | News, Sports, Jobs https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/economic-development-and-outdoor-recreation-two-land-purchase-concerns-news-sports-jobs/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 22:39:27 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/economic-development-and-outdoor-recreation-two-land-purchase-concerns-news-sports-jobs/


KEWEENAW COUNTY – As part of the planning process for the proposed purchase of more than 32,000 acres in eastern Keweenaw County, John Molinaro, consultant for The Nature Conservancy in Michigan and the Department of Natural Resources, met with the Keweenaw ATV Club in April.

A meeting was held with representatives from each group — fishing, hunting, trapping, bicycles, ATVs and snowmobiles — to determine how the land will be managed after a change in ownership, according to the minutes of the April meeting of the club.

The minutes say people are worried about how different activities – like hunting and fishing – will be handled with the purchase.

In addition to the concerns of outdoor enthusiasts, there are many other considerations addressed by the 13-member planning committee, all local residents, including economic development.

At a town hall meeting in Calumet on Tuesday at which Molinaro was the keynote speaker, he said there were three existing businesses that have requested the ability to purchase plots of land related to what they are currently doing in the region.

One is Lonie Glieberman’s Mount Bohemia, who currently owns the land under her “base camp.” Mount Bohemia, he said, owns the shoreline it uses, as well as all the land along the way to Lake La Belle.

However, it does not own the land on the mountain where some of its ski runs are located.

“They praise it” says Molinaro. “They have 75 years left on their lease and their lease allows them to do anything on this land, for 75 years.”

They would like to own the property if they can acquire it, he said.

The second company is Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, owned by John Mueller. The land the lodge would like to acquire is to the east of the property owned by the lodge, which historically was built by the Works Progress Administration in the early 1930s. It included stables and other utilitarian structures.

“Part of this land would only be a buffer”, says Molinaro, “and they offered to buy some of it.”

The third company is Rock Solid, the company that built most of the mountain bike trails in the area. They expressed a desire to purchase the property on which some of his trails were built.

Helen Taylor, state director of The Nature Conservancy in Michigan, who was also present at the meeting, said that from a practical point of view, the companies that have expressed a desire to buy these lands are part of the ability of TNC and DNR to pay for the proposed land purchase, but it does not stop there.

While TNC and DNR are aware of community challenges, such as adequate parking, affordable housing, trail use and other aspects that meet tourism requirements, TNC hopes the whole process will help to shed light on what is happening.

“So it’s not limited to those three (companies) that John described,” she says. “Part of what we’re trying to figure out… how we would pay for it. We do a lot of fundraising, but it’s quite an expensive ticket.

Currently, she said, neither TNC nor the DNR have reached an agreement with the Rohatyn Group, which owns the forest land, but they hope to negotiate a price that all parties can agree on. There are two ongoing assessments, she said, which should be completed by the end of this month.

“And we’ll see if we can come to an agreement then,” she says.

But in trying to address the financial aspect of the purchase, she said, TNC had conversations with the state and other government entities, to find out what they would be willing to own or buy for the proposal to be financially successful.

Brad Carlson, supervisor of the Forest Resources Division for Unit No. 11 in Baraga, said that while there is still debate over MNR’s purchase of some 9,000 acres at Keweenaw Point, the DRF is interested in purchasing at least the eastern 4,000 acres as a first priority, while the second priority would be to acquire an additional 5,000 acres for the MNR Parks Division.

“But like I said,” said Carlson, “If we acquire the full 9,000 acres, we’re going to have meetings to see what’s best for each division,” adding that both plots would have a management plan.

Land has been a major concern for many people, both in Keweenaw County and beyond, ever since AMF Real Estate, representing TRG, announced the marketing of approximately 32,661 acres of property during the last week of June 2021.

Called the Heartland property, the acreage, as of June 28 last year, was listed in four separate packages:

• The Point, approximately 10,080 acres GIS – $12,090,000

• Harbor View, approximately 5,749 acres GIS – $6,908,000

• Keweenaw, Alpine approximately 9,769 acres GIS – $14,650,000

• Little Betsy Shoreline, approximately 7,063 acres GIS – $9,545,000

Campgrounds accepting reservations near Holland State Park https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/campgrounds-accepting-reservations-near-holland-state-park/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 10:04:50 +0000 https://www.scaffoldingboards.org/campgrounds-accepting-reservations-near-holland-state-park/

HOLLAND – Holland is home to a plethora of hotels, but lovers of the great outdoors will be happy to know that the lakeside is also home to a series of campgrounds.

Whether you prefer cabins, tents, or RVs, the greater Holland area has options — and many of them are within walking distance of Holland State Park.

Here are six campgrounds to consider this summer:

Macatawa Lake Campground

Address: 2175 Ottawa Beach Road, Park Township

Pitches: 211

Book: 800-447-2757

Holland State Park has two campgrounds: Lake Macatawa and Modern Beach. Macatawa Lake Campground offers wooded, sunny campsites, with the majority of sites located on grass or gravel. Twelve sites are accessible by the ADA.

Families can enjoy two play structures, a volleyball court and horseshoe pit, as well as a small beach on Lake Macatawa across from the campground entrance. Not to mention the site’s walking distance to Holland State Park.

At Lake Macatawa Campground, families can enjoy two play structures, a volleyball court and horseshoe pit, as well as a small beach on Lake Macatawa across from the entrance to the campground.

Modern Beach Campground

Address: 2175 Ottawa Beach Road, Park Township

Pitches: 98

Book: 800-447-2757

Visitors will register at the same address as Lake Macatawa Campground, but Modern Beach Campground is a very different experience. Modern Beach Campground is located just above the Lake Michigan Dune in Holland State Park. The campground has just under 100 sites, all paved.

Fire pits are not provided, but campers can bring their own portable fire pits. Some amenities are shared with Lake Macatawa Campground, but the main perk of staying at Modern Beach is the short walk to the waterfront — as well as easy access to Holland State Park’s Beachplace Cafe.
