Make in India is a govt.-supported initiative that is aimed at making India realize its manufacturing potential and becoming self-sufficient in the process. Ready Mix Concrete Manufacturers in Gurgaon seem to have adopted this initiative in its full glory and are coming up with fully Indian solutions. Here are some of the world-class machinery and equipment that have brought India to the fore of global players in building material and construction equipment.

1.

Batching plant for concrete mixing and supply: Concrete mixing and supply has seen new heights in terms of quality at RMC Plant in Gurgaon. In this batching concrete machinery, the user can create RMC using the components in the desired proportions. This is a highly productive concrete maker solution and can withstand long runs and continued use. Thus, the user can make numerous batches of concrete at fixed cost making it quite a profitable proposition for the owner.

2.

High Volume Fly Ash Concrete mixing machine: Concrete made from high volume fly ash is known for exceptional water tighting property. This kind of machine replaces about 50-60% of the cement solution with high volume ash and is used widely for making Portland Pozzolona Cement. Its high resistance to water and exceptional electrostatic property make it an ideal solution for buildings to be built near the sea region.

3.

Self-loading mixers: This is quite an automated machine that self-loads the components with the sand in drum. The biggest advantage of these mixers is that these have very small turning circle. It allows the user to employ these mixers in confined spaces. It is a great time saver too, as the machine collects the aggregates and mixes them while on its way to the site location. It is ideal for even the toughest site locations because of its high grade design.

Hollow core Slab Making Machine: A bespoke machine for pre-cast building solutions. It proves its excellence in preparing high quality slabs; also in terms of organizing better the whole manufacturing process starting from the initial capital outlay, the consumption of raw material; the labor cost, scrap management and better time management. Thus, production time is reduced to minimum as the only thing required is to transport the slab and fix it in the intended location.

A perfect concrete manufacturing plant is one that is cost effective, durable and long-lasting, and is quite fast in functioning. It is given the responsibility of reducing the labor cost and effort by giving readymade concrete and other building material to the construction experts and professional builders. The biggest advantage lies in the availability of scrap management and recycling of waste, allowing the owner to utilize the resources to the maximum and convert the cost centers into promising revenue points.

So, rely only on high quality readymade mix concrete coming from Indian plants and come one step closer to becoming a self-sufficient country. This could be the turning point in the way to becoming a construction specialist of the world class quality.

City to sue owner of partially collapsed 19th century livery in Buffalo, New York

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Buffalo, New York — Two weeks after a 19th century stable and livery on Jersey Street partially collapsed and caused 15 homes to be evacuated in Buffalo, New York, residents still do not have answers from the city despite a court order to work with them and come to an agreement on a way to save some or all of the building, Wikinews has learned. Despite the frustration from residents, the city is planning on suing the building’s owner. A rally was held at the stable’s site where residents are hoping to bring more awareness to the situation and gain more support to save the building.

On June 11, a significant portion of the stable’s right side wall collapsed into the yard of a resident’s home. Authorities, including the Buffalo Fire Department were called to the scene to evaluate the collapse and evacuate 15 homes of residents surrounding the stable as a precautionary measure. The following day, the city ordered an emergency demolition on the building, which was stopped by a restraining order residents with Save The Livery (www.savethelivery.com) won on June 14. Two weeks later, five homes are still evacuated and residents don’t know when they will be able to return.

On June 19, Judge Justice Christopher Burns of the New York State Supreme Court ordered a halt to the emergency demolition and ordered the city and residents to come to an agreement to save the building, or at least a significant portion of it. Despite a court date today, no agreement has yet been reached between the two parties.

“It is in the interest of the city to have a safe environment–but also important to maintain a sense of historical preservation,” stated Burns in his June 19th ruling. The court ruled that a limited demolition could take place and that the city was only allowed to remove material in immediate danger to residents and pedestrians, but stated that the demolition could only be performed with “hand tools.” The court also ordered that any rubble which had fallen into neighboring yards when the building collapsed, to be removed. Since then, most of not all the significantly damaged portions of the building or portions in immediate danger of falling have been demolished. The roof has also been removed to put less stress on the stable’s walls.

“Its been over three years since we have been having problems with part of the livery falling down. There was an implosion two weeks ago and suddenly the city wanted to have an emergency demolition,” said Catherine Herrick who lives on Summer Street immediately behind the stable and is the main plaintiff in the lawsuit against the city. Many homes on Summer are small cottages which were used as servants quarters when the stable was in operation, many of which were built in the 1820’s. At least seven homes on Summer border the stable’s back walls. Residents in those homes have significant gardens which have been planted against the building and growing for decades.

“Both parties are to continue to work together to see how we can meet everybody’s needs. This is the third time we have been in that courtroom, and that is what we were basically told to do,” added Herrick who said the rally was held today because this “is Buffalo’s history. Buffalo is a wonderful place to live because of its history and this is a historical, beautiful building and we need to keep those beautiful buildings.”

Herrick states that the city is working with residents, but also believes that its “slow moving” and they are allowing the owner to get away with neglect on the property.

“I believe right now that they are letting the owner get off. The owner was negligent for 20 years, and hasn’t done anything to it despite what he has claimed to say. Now that this is an emergency situation, the city has a lot to say about it,” added Herrick.

Currently the building is owned by Bob Freudenheim who has several building violations against him because its poor condition. He has received at least five violations in three months and residents who live near the building state that Freudenheim should be “100% responsible” for his actions.

Freudenheim gave the city permission to demolish the building on June 12 during an emergency Preservation Board meeting, because he would not be “rehabilitating the building anytime soon.” Freudenheim, along with his wife Nina, were part-owners of the Hotel Lenox at 140 North Street in Buffalo and were advocates to stop the Elmwood Village Hotel from being built on the Southeast corner of Forest and Elmwood Avenues. They also financially supported a lawsuit in an attempt to stop the hotel from being built. Though it is not known exactly how long Freudenheim has owned the stable, Wikinews has learned that he was the owner while fighting to stop the hotel from being built. Residents say that he has been the owner for at least 22 years. Attorneys for Freudenheim confirm that the city is starting proceedings against him for his violations beginning as early as Wednesday June 25. Freudenheim has not released a statement and could not be reached for comment.

Many residents want the building preserved and Herrick states that their engineer can have it stable in “four days” as opposed to the 14-30 days it would take to demolish the building and “at a lesser cost than what it costs to demolish it.”

It will cost the city nearly US$300,000 to demolish the building which is paid for with tax money collected from residents in the city. The Buffalo News reports that fees are approaching $700,000. Though reports say there is a potential buyer of the stable, Wikinews cannot independently confirm those reports.

Residents say the stable was designed by Richard A. Waite, a 19th century architect, and was first owned by a company called White Bros., used as a stable and housed at least 30 horses at any given time. It also stored “coaches, coupes, broughams, Victorias and everything in the line of light livery,” stated an article from the West Side Topics dated 1906. According to the article, The company first opened in 1881 on Thirteenth Street, now Normal Avenue, and later moved into the Jersey building in 1892. The Buffalo Fire Department believes the building was built around 1814, while the city property database states it was built in 1870. It is believed to be only one of three stables of this kind still standing in the country.

At about 1950, the stable was converted into an automobile body shop and gasoline station.A property record search showed that in 1950 at least four fuel storage tanks were installed on the property. Two are listed as 550 square feet while the other two are 2,000 square feet. All of the tanks are designated as a TK4, which New York State says is used for “below ground horizontal bulk fuel storage.” The cost of installing a tank of that nature according to the state, at that time, included the tank itself, “excavation and backfill,” but did not include “the piping, ballast, or hold-down slab orring.” It is not known if the tanks are still on the property, but residents are concerned the city was not taking the precautions to find out.

Wikinews has called the city along with the Mayor’s office several times, but both have yet to return our calls. There are conflicting reports as to the date of the next hearing. According to Herrick, the next hearing is July 1, 2008 though the Buffalo News states the next hearing is July 8. The News also states that Burns will make a final ruling on the stable at this time.

Skid Steer Attachments Review: Bale Handler Or Bale Spear}

Skid Steer Attachments Review: Bale Handler or Bale Spear

by

Robert Leib

The skid steer loader is an old hand at farm life. For many decades, at harvest time in rural communities, a familiar scene rose out of the freshly shorn fields: a farmer with a baler is followed by a passel of teenagers, who are dutifully chucking and stacking the dusty bales into a flatbed farm vehicle. Those same teenagers would earn a bit more money de-tasseling corn stalks at the next farm down the road.

But there is always someone devising easier ways to do things. If indeed a grass, wheat, hay, or straw farmer needs to harvest, store, and transport his crops, he is going have to come to grips with just how versatile the skid steer machine can be on a farm of any size. And when choosing the most useful skid steer attachments for his machine, he will have to come to grips with the best way to grip his bales.

Is a bale handler going to be the best choice? Or will a bale spear work better? Bales of grasses, wheat, hay, straw, and other crops are staples in rural communities, and whether they are to be bought, sold, or used by a farmer, they need to be stacked, stored, moved around, and eventually eaten by the livestock. The Bale Handler is one of the simplest skid steer attachments available. It consists of nothing more than a giant hydraulic claw that can pinch any size or shape of bale. Using the boom of the skid steer, the operator then has the ability to lift or tote a bale wherever it needs to go.

With the ability to move, stack, lift, and transport round or rectangular bales up to 2400 pounds, bale handlers are strong enough to handle almost any bale. Many modern bales, in order to keep the material together, are wrapped in a plastic sheath before being transported. Because the wrapping material is the only thing that keeps the round bale intact, the bale handler has been specially designed to have no sharp edges. It is made with smooth surfaces all around, so that this skid steer attachment is able to manipulate wrapped bales without the risk of damage to the wrapper. The bale handler attachment is the kind of skid steer attachment that will assist in keeping barns and yards tidy and well-organized for years into the future.

The Bale Spear is an entirely different animal, and is truly one of the simplest skid steer attachments that is available on the market. It is made up of a simple pair of sharp fork tines for poking the bales. The bales can then be lifted and carried and put in a barn, trough, or into the back of a truck. Because of its nasty, sharp, pointy end, the bale spear is one of many skid steer attachments that should be operated with the utmost care. It too, is capable of stacking bales of any size with ease into a truck or barn, but is, by virtue of its design, more well-suited to round bales. The bale spear can impale several disks of crops (without contacting their wrappers) and move them anywhere the skid steer can go.

Which is best? As with many skid steer accessories, it depends on the job, and the type of bales that need to be moved. If a farmer finds that he or she produces bales of different kinds, then the bale handler makes more sense. It really is able to work effectively with any bale configuration. However, if a farmer is only going to work with round bales, then the bale spear is the best choice. It is simply designed to work with round bales, and can carry a formidable load.

No matter what shape your bales might be, let the skid steer (and the right attachment) help you handle them with care.

Canadian charter airline Skyservice suspends operations

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Skyservice, a Canadian charter airline, has cancelled several flights from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, with reports that the airline has ceased operations.

The company cites debt levels and changes in the vacation travel market with its decision to shut down operations and file for receivership. At the time of the filing in Ontario Superior Court, Skyservice is said to owe almost $9 million CAD to long-term partner and Thomas Cook subsidiary Sunquest Vacations. This situation exacerbated the debt load already put on the airline by a leveraged buyout in 2007 by Vancouver-based private equity firm Gibralt Capital Corporation. That placed more debt than was workable on the troubled airline, along with Roynat Capital calling in their loans to Skyservice earlier in the year.

Skyservice has stated that it will work with its partner companies and other providers to ensure customers stranded by the airline’s sudden shutdown are dealt with effectively, according to a company representative. In addition to customers impacted by the cancellation of flights for the month of April, approximately 860 jobs are expected to be lost as a result of this shutdown.

Tour operator Signature Vacations, under a contract with Skyservice until 2013, has stated that they were prepared for the airline’s receivership, having joined forces with rival service Sunwing Airlines.

Last year, operator Conquest Vacations declared bankruptcy, allegedly due to the economic downturn and reduced revenues throughout the industry.

Last missing body from Minnesota bridge collapse found

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

The remains of the last missing person following the bridge collapse in Minneapolis were recovered on Monday. The official death toll now stands at 13, following the collapse nearly three weeks ago. All recovery efforts have now been stopped.

The remains of Gregory Jolstad were found yesterday. Jolstad, nicknamed “Jolly,” was a member of the construction crew that was resurfacing the bridge. Jolstad was driving a skid loader. He was 45.

Jolstad’s wife, Lisa Jolstad, was worried that the search for her husband’s remains would drag on, leaving her without any closure.

Sheriff Rich Stanek said, “There aren’t a lot of smiles here tonight…We all have very heavy hearts. It weighed on a lot of people, both personally and professionally.”

Governor Tim Pawlenty asked President Bush on Monday to declare the collapse a major disaster, allowing the state to be eligible for more federal money. President Bush is scheduled to be in Minneapolis today to get a briefing on the bridge.
