‘Reimagining our future’ – the theme for this year’s Water Week is truly inspirational, especially for architects who have an important role to play in mitigating global concerns about water security.
The ongoing climate change crisis makes it imperative for all stakeholders to invest more in water saving technologies across all parts of society.
By reimagining water usage in commercial bathrooms, architects and designers can future-proof their projects – with a little help from Uridan Waterless Solutions, and their latest touchless and sustainable waterless urinals.
The waterless urinal of choice since 2003, Uridan combines stunning industrial design with sustainable management of water and energy. With a single installation of a Uridan waterless urinal, a building can save up to 60,000 litres of clean drinking water per year, which would have otherwise been flushed out in a conventional urinal.
By using no water, the Uridan collection makes for a more environment-friendly

ST. HELENA (CBS SF) — Weary firefighters, including National Guard units and prison inmate crews, took advantage of calm winds and cooler temperatures early Saturday, expanding containment of the massive Glass Fire to 10 percent and allowing evacuated residents of Calistoga and Angwin to breath their first sighs of relief in nearly a week.
Meanwhile, weather forecasters were keeping on an eye on a front developing in the Pacific that could bring much needed showers to the San Francisco Bay Area next weekend. Of particular interest, National Weather Service forecasters said, were plumes of moisture spinning toward Northern California from Hurricane Marie.
“In general, in looking at trends would say that confidence is increasing for some type of precipitation by next weekend,” the weather service said. “Rain amounts all over the board based on if Marie gets ingested as well as where (the) cold front would move onshore.

Commercial properties require routine maintenance to sustain an appealing and professional-looking premise. This is especially important for retail stores and brick-and-mortar businesses that provide a service, such as restaurants, spas, gyms, and boutiques. As a service-oriented business, having an unattractive curb appeal can instantly reduce its perceived value from a customer’s point of view. One of the first things customers see when they approach your business’s door is the roofing and siding.

If you neglect these tasks, you are looking at premature roof and siding replacement. This is the principle reason why business owners should pressure wash the exterior of their building at least once a year.
Increased Curb Appeal

It’s not just the practical elements of an entrance system that are important to a business. Commercial flooring contractors have a role to play in not only recommending the best flooring for clients, but one that will enhance the primary appearance and create a talking point in a wide-range of commercial venues and environments.
Flooring is one of the most important elements of any commercial space. On an aesthetic note, the floor is able to reinforce the brand by either supporting the overall concept or by becoming an important brand statement. Company logos, unique compositions and distinctive color patterns can all be created to help sell the products and promote the brand.
