Figure 6.12 Ten criteria of the Achieving Excellence Design Evaluation Toolkit. Figure 6.12 Ten criteria of the Achieving Excellence Design Evaluation Toolkit. The toolkit is to be used at various key stages in the design development process and to support the non-financial assessments required in business cases. The toolkit comprises a series of key questions supported by lists of related issues that need to be considered. The questions are answered by entering a numerical score (between 1 and 6) into an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet automatically averages out the answers in each of the 10 sections and enters them in a table and a radar chart the 'Design Evaluation Profile' (Fig. 6.13).

The Royal Docks, adjacent to the Excel Centre, London. conceived by London Docklands Development Corporation, was designed to provide a hub for leisure, business and residential developments and to connect with existing communities. The design evolved from the site's existing features such as the buildings, cranes and waterfront setting. A central lawn is bordered by a paved walkway. The canopy is punched through with names of ships that docked in the old basin. Materials reflect those used in past industrial times - steel, natural stone, concrete and timber. The fountains provide a ceremonial route to the Excel Centre and a play facility for children.
To excel in architecture we must warm up the blood to the work. The owner, officer, and sailor of a gallant ship love her with sympathy as of a human affinity. A ship is not it, but she and her, one of the family the marvel of strength and beauty a thing of life, to be tenderly and lovingly cared for and proudly spoken of. All the romance of the trader's heart - in the West, the steamboat holds a corresponding position in the taste and affections of the public -goes out bountifully towards the symmetrical, stately, graceful object of his adventurous skill and toil. Ocean-clippers and river-steamers are fast making way for locomotive and propeller, about which human affections scarce can cluster, and which art has yet to learn how to dignify and adorn. But the vital principle, love of the work, still lives, that gave to the sailing-vessel new grace and beauty, combining them with the highest qualities of utility and strength into a happy unity of form. As soon as an equal love is...
The cartridge has three settings and produces a smooth and precise, yet very subtle resistance to a change in mode when altered from reduced to full flow. On full flow, Enviro-Klick delivers four per cent less water than a standard tap cartridge and 80 per cent less on reduced flow, dramatically cutting water and energy use, resulting in great savings for consumers. Enviro-Klick is available in three Deva ranges Excel and Revelle from the Contemporary Collection, and Eider from the Everyday Collection. All are available for less than 100 excluding VAT and boast a comprehensive 12-year guarantee including 2 years on parts and labour and a 10-year parts only warranty.
The materials used or the Ingredients and the specific way they are treated are Important for both creative activities, cooking and building. Your projects excel because material and construction contribute considerably to perfecting expression. Do these projects arise from reducing and refining the ingredients or from reinventing and differentiating them A.G. Both things are true. The former is more the case for the Kirchner Museum. There we took a familiar material, glass, and treated it differently and used it differently according to the role the glass had to play in relation to handling the light and transparency when looking into the museum interior. We used clear, etched and also profiled glass. And then we spread broken glass, i.e. waste glass on the flat roofs instead of gravel. But for the Oskar Reinhart Collection on the Romerholz in Winterthur it was the latter, the invention of a new concrete mixture. We were trying to match the new part of the building to the...
In architecture the artist needs above all a general education. It is not that he should carry around in his head an excess of idle knowledge and on its basis take every occasion to instruct with a professorial language, or excel with a positive knowledge of the existing, or discuss what exists in terms of philosophical concepts, abstractions, and syntheses. But rather, his spirit must be so imbued with the essence of the classical period that his activity, which can only be directed to the new conditions within the new circumstances, may freely proceed in the spirit of those classical times and, with an unimpeded cadence, bring forth the correct, the beautiful, and the characteristic from among the new and transformed conditions.
Stuart and Revett nevertheless came to the same conclusion with their view that the Athenians attained the highest excellence in sculpture and architecture, while the Romans never quite equaled their accomplishments. But of all the Countries, which were embellished by the Ancients with magnificent Buildings, Greece appears principally to merit our Attention since, ifwe believe the Ancients themselves, the most beautiful Orders and Dispositions of Columns were invented in that Country, and the most celebrated Works of Architecture were erected there to which may be added that the most excellent Treatises on the Art appear to have been written by Grecian Architects. The City of Greece most renowned for stately Edifices, for the Genius of its Inhabitants, and for the culture of every Art, was Athens. We therefore resolved to examine that Spot rather than any other flattering ourselves, that the remains we might find there, would excel in true Taste and Elegance every thing hitherto...
The limit state analysis with finite friction constitutes a new tool to define the 3D structural behaviour of masonry vaults. By means of an easy and rigorous procedure, developed with commercial programs (for example Excel), it is possible to obtain an optimum solution considering the load redistribution after cracking.
A thin line indeed separates the various kinds of'opaque paints. Some are sold as temperas, others as designer's watercolors, poster colors, or showcard colors. VVinsor & Newton's designers' opaque watercolors, while they are especially made for gouache painting, are excellent for opaque renderings, as are Grum-bacher's designers' colors, Weber Malfa, Shiva Nu-Tempera, and Rich Art poster colors. 1. Red sable, bright-shape. Like watercolor brushes, tempera brushes are made by different manufacturers and thus vary greatly in number and size. Winsor & Newton's bright-shape series 52, No. 3, No. 4, and No. 6, or series 807, No. 1, No. 2, No. 4, and No. 6, are excel lent, as are Grumbacher's series 320, No. 3, No. 6, and No. 14. Tempera brushes should be examined carefully when purchased (using the procedure described in Chapter 10) to make certain that there are no loose ferrules or hairs. Like watercolor brushes, tempera brushes should immediately spring back into a straight position...
It will be appreciated that the type of calculations discussed above lend themselves to the use of computer spreadsheets and Microsoft Excel is very convenient here as it is in many engineering situations as presented in Liengme (2002). A spreadsheet can be produced for the calculations in Table 4.1. This has been done to create Table 4.4. The first four columns present the ordinate number and the values of x, y and Simpson's multiplier. Assuming the x values are in cells B3 to B11, the y values in C3 to C11 and the SM values in D3 to D11, then
Japanese practices promoted and popularised process improvement. The quality movement brought the concept of continuous improvement (kaizen), to which the business guru Tom Peters added customer focus. In their seminal work In Search of Excellence (1982), Peters & Waterman compared the products of the American motor industry with that of the Japanese. They concluded that 'lack of care and attention is a detrimental aspect of the finish given by so many companies to the work they undertake'. 'They excel in the quality of fits and finishes, moldings that match, doors that don't sag, materials that look good and wear well, flawless paint jobs. Most important of all, Japanese cars have earned a reputation for reliability, borne out by the generally lower warranty claims they experience. Technically, most Japanese cars are fairly ordinary.' (Burck, 1980, quoted in Peters & Waterman, 1982)
What one saves on materials supports people rather than corporations. The simplicity of the technique lends itself to owner builder and sweat-equity housing endeavors and disaster relief efforts. Properly designed corbelled earthbag domes excel in structural resilience in the face of the most challenging of natural disasters. Does it really make sense to replace a tornado-ravaged tract house in Kansas with another tract house An earthbag dome provides more security than most homeowner insurance policies could offer by building a house that is resistant to fire, rot, termites, earthquakes, hurricanes, and flood conditions.
It is convenient to use a spreadsheet program for the flux distribution procedure. The instructions in the following text are for Excel software, and the resulting spreadsheet is Table 6.1. Bring up the Excel spreadsheet on your computer, and follow this example. This point marks the end of data input. From here on, Excel does all the work.
Likewise, a drawing can have many layers which is like drawing on multiple sheets of clear acetate. Formatted tables from Microsoft Word or Excel can be imported with publish and subscribe. Recent PowerCADD releases have reference files to allow multiple designers to work on a single project. It also contains some interface refinements, and supports a 64-bit, double-precision internal calculations for increased accuracy and performance.
The material is treated with boron to give fire resistance and protect against vermin infestation. It is suitable for wet spray or dry blown application. One of the most popular proprietary brands is 'Warmcell', supplied by Excel Industries which belongs to Fillcrete. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.036 W mK, which puts it in the same category as most of the main insulants on the market. It has BBA (British Board of Agreement) certification. Warmcell is an integral part of Fillcrete's 'breathing wall' panel system suitable for structural walls, floor and roof components. The panels have a U-value of 0.19 W m2K. The panels incorporate service ducts on the internal face to facilitate rapid on-site fixture of services.
