Tiger Turf – Easy to Maintain Synthetic Turf Lawns 2017-03-24T03:10:12Z tiger-turf-easy-to-maintain-synthetic-turf-lawns TigerTurf, the world’s largest synthetic turf manufacturer, has a record of accomplishment of over 35 years. Their synthetic turf lawns are low maintenance and easy to take care of. Users of these synthetic turf lawns can save plenty of time and money by not having to mow, fertilise, or heavily water their lawn. With little attention, they can still enjoy a soft green lawn that looks fabulous all year round.   Tiger Turf landscape lawns are versatile products that can be used at home, school, and work areas. They are perfect for places where natural grass does not grow well. They can also be used for heavy foot traffic areas and where a soft green lawn is needed all year round but without much maintenance.   Artificial lawns by TigerTurf are low in maintenance. These lawns stay lush green all the time. Cleaning is easy, simple, effective and fast. There are no weeds to pull out and no trimming of overgrown grass from time to time.   The only maintenance required for synthetic turf lawns depends on the kind of situation it is being used in. Families with pets and children will require more cleaning up than those without them. A few steps of care will ensure that their lawns are clean, looking great and last a long time.    Carrying out a few maintenance steps will ensure that these synthetic turf lawns serve their owners a long time. These include keeping them clear off fallen leaves, branches, and other rotting debris that fly and land over them. Using a rake or leaf blower will help keep this patch clean and clear off debris and give a maintained, clean and groomed look.    Spraying water over the synthetic lawn once a week with a hose helps remove dust, dirt, or pollen. For homes with pets, clearing their solid waste using plastic bags and pooper-scoopers helps keep the area clean. In case there are unpleasant odours, using white vinegar diluted in equal parts of lukewarm water mixed in a bucket and poured over that area helps neutralise any odours.   The lawn should be regularly inspected for moss or algae, especially in damp weather and in shaded areas. Sprays with chemicals need to be used with caution; the owners should ensure that the correct rates and application method recommended by the company are followed.   TigerTurf’s product TurfGuard is the most effective and safe product to use on these artificial landscape lawns. Customers can order for them by calling 1800 802 570 or sending an email to AUinfo@tigerturf.com.   For more information on TigerTurf’s synthetic turf lawns, visit this link http://tigerturf.com/au/maintaining-your-synthetic-grass-lawn-au   Manly Iconic Building Ready For A New Lease Of Life 2017-03-23T00:16:48Z manly-iconic-building-ready-for-a-new-lease-of-life Call for Expressions of Interest Lease of The Officers' Mess & Annexe: Buildings 44 & 46 at North Head Sanctuary 33 North Head Scenic Drive, Manly NSW 2095 The Sydney Harbour Federation Trust is seeking expressions of interest to lease two landmark former defence buildings, Buildings 44 and 46, at North Head Sanctuary in Manly. These two buildings form part of the complex of original defence buildings known as the Barracks Precinct, reflecting the rich military history and natural serenity of North Head Sanctuary. Framing the historic Parade Ground at the centre of the Barracks Precinct, once home to Australia’s School of Artillery, the purpose-built Officers’ Mess (Building 44) and Annexe (Building 46) are now being presented for expressions of leasing interest. “This a rare opportunity for the right tenant to lease significant heritage buildings in close proximity to the Sydney Harbour foreshore and the thriving community of Manly”, the Harbour Trust’s Acting Executive Director Susan Culverston said. “We’re looking for suitably qualified tenants, to join this unique tenant community, whose activities complement the commercial businesses and education organisations already based at North Head Sanctuary”.  “We welcome adaptive re-use proposals that are sensitive and in balance with the Sanctuary’s distinctive natural environment. The tranquil bushland setting makes this an ideal place for relaxation and respite, or for education and research facilities related to the natural environment. Health and wellbeing practitioners, accommodation providers, restaurant groups, event’s organisers, educators or administrators would find themselves at home in this peaceful precinct”.  Building 44, the Officers’ Mess, is one of the original set of 1930s Barracks Precinct buildings strategically designed along western-sloping dunes to fall below the trajectory of enemy naval fire. With many of its authentic Art Deco features intact, Building 44 holds considerable heritage significance, both as a stand-alone building, and as part of the entire complex layout. As the School of Artillery grew, and visiting Officers came to attend special training courses, an adjacent Officers Annexe - Building 46 - was added for their temporary accommodation from the 1960s until the School relocated in the 1990s.  “The Harbour Trust is committed to preserving, managing and promoting all of our extraordinary former defence sites along the Sydney Harbour foreshore. As a self-funding government agency, leasing repurposed buildings is integral to this ongoing mission, and all revenue contributes to conserving, protecting and improving public access to Sydney Harbour Federation Trust lands” Susan Culverston said.  The link below contains EOI1701 Main Document – in both hi-res (PQ for Print Quality) and lo-res (WQ for Web Quality) formats - Please note that this main doc contains the Site Map.

A new national positioning system accurate to between 2cm and 10cm – as opposed to 5 metres with today’s satellite-based GPS – will boost Australia’s economy by $73 billion or more over the next 20 years, much of it in agriculture, says Dr Peter Woodgate, CEO of the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI). “To adopt techniques like precision agriculture and controlled traffic farming, farmers need to be able to position equipment and sensors with about 5cm accuracy. The conference will showcase space-based augmentation systems – including Australia and New Zealand’s joint initiative – which, subject to testing, are well on the way to achieving that,” said Woodgate. “Leveraging other regional efforts, such as a Japanese satellite-based system recently trialled in Queensland, it will even be possible to remotely control unmanned autonomous vehicles like driverless tractors from space.” Australia’s investments in positioning systems will not only pay off in higher agricultural exports but will create export business opportunities and new jobs in digital agriculture to aid the transition from sectors of the economy impacted by digital disruption. Woodgate and fellow Working Group Co-Chair, Glenn Cockerton, Managing Director of Spatial Vision, will make the first public presentation of the 2026 Spatial Industry Transformation and Growth Agenda at Digital Earth & Locate17, outlining 30 transformative initiatives for Australia. In another highlight of the event, the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will hold a special session to promote capacity building and use of data from its Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Observatory. SMAP products, which provide frequent global measurements of soil moisture from space at high spatial resolution, are freely available (http://nsidc.org/data/smap), with one of the first validation experiments carried out in Yanco, NSW. According to Phil Tickle, Program and Business Development Manager (Ag, NRM & Climate Change) at CRCSI, NASA’s SMAP data will complement data from a range of sensors used in digital agriculture, including soil moisture probes, weather stations, and animal tracking devices. Tickle is presenting the benefits of an online farm monitoring solution for the grazing industry at Digital Earth & Locate17. Called the NRM Spatial Hub, this provides access to 30 years of 30 metre resolution satellite data and tools for mapping, assessing and monitoring property infrastructure, land resources and ground cover. It is currently being commercialised by the CRCSI in conjunction with Meat & Livestock Australia. Tickle said the conference was an opportunity for farmers and land managers to learn about the spatial technologies transforming their industry, as well as to discuss potential issues, such as the ownership of agricultural big data. “We are seeing enormous development in digital agriculture capabilities and often farmers don’t have control of their own data,” said Tickle. “When you have sensors on farms feeding into data warehouses and generating broader benefits, why shouldn’t the farmer get a cut? And what does a farmer do if they want to change providers and their data is locked up in a proprietary system?” With a program featuring more than 130 international and Australian speakers, Digital Earth & Locate17 provides a unique opportunity to understand digital transformation practices from around the world, and to develop and leverage geospatial data. The two main conference days will be split into eight separate streams with topics including smart cities, virtual globes, intelligent transport, agriculture, engineering/utilities, smart sensors for natural resource management, water & climate, disaster & emergency management, and the geospatial economy. The joint conference will be held 03-06 April 2017 at the new International Conference Centre Sydney. The Digital Earth & Locate17 Conference’s Market Day on Tuesday 4th April opens the exhibition to everyone and is an opportunity for private, government and start-up organisations to come together and explore collaborative and business opportunities. About the International Symposium on Digital Earth The International Symposium on Digital Earth is a flagship event of the International Society for Digital Earth. Founded in Beijing in 2006, ISDE is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit international organisation principally promoting academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration towards Digital Earth. ISDE also explores Digital Earth as an enabling technology to play key roles in economic and social sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster mitigation, natural resources conservation and improvement of living standards. About Locate17 The Locate Conference (Locate17) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA). ARDILL PAYNE & PARTNERS RISE TO NEW HEIGHTS FOR THE AMRUN PROJECT. 2017-03-22T22:30:53Z ardill-payne-amp-partners-rise-to-new-heights-for-the-amrun-project Ardill Payne & Partners (APP) of Ballina have been hard at work designing five 70meter-high communication towers for Rio Tinto’s new bauxite project site, named the Amrun Project. The project is located 2500km from the APP Head office in Ballina.   Bill Payne, Partner at APP commented, “We were excited to win a huge project like this, and after working so hard on these towers it’s great to see the first now up.”   Rio Tinto has mined bauxite at Weipa on Western Cape York for more than 50 years. Almost ten years ago, they began investigating the possibility of building a new mine on part of their existing lease south of the Embley River, between Weipa and Aurukun.   Amrun sits on Wik-Waya traditional lands. At the request of Traditional Owners, the South of Embley project is known as Amrun, the Wik‑Waya name for the area.   Rio Tinto has agreements with 12 Traditional Owner groups in total, across three agreements, which underpin all Weipa operations and activities.   The Amrun project includes the construction of a range of infrastructure required to support mining including a processing plant and port near Boyd Bay, a dam, tailings storage facility, roads and a ferry terminal on the Hey River to transport workers from Weipa to the mine.   “With a construction team of 1400 people, the Amrun project will provide jobs and strengthen the economy for the people of Cape York and Queensland for many decades,” said Bill.    “This is a cultural win in the area, with a wonderful story of Original Land Owner involvement. Rio Tinto have worked closely with Wik-Waya people to develop a Communities, Heritage and Environment Management Plan to guide construction and operation of the project. It’s been a great experience.”   Ardill Payne & Partners have been assisting with the communications for the Port and Mine – through design, surveying and engineering for the communications towers and masts over the vast mine area from Amrun to Weipa.   Operations in Weipa provide jobs for a diverse workforce of 1,400 people. Close to one in four employees are Indigenous and one in four are women.   US$1.9 billion is being invested into the Amrun Project.   ENDS ABOUT ARDILL PAYNE & PARTNERS   Ardill Payne & Partners is a multi-disciplinary consulting firm of Engineers, Town Planners and Surveyors.

Your Latest Specification Resource is Finally Here! 2017-03-20T03:05:30Z your-latest-specification-resource-is-finally-here-1 Krost Business Furniture has its earliest beginnings in South Africa in the 1920s. Launched by three brothers to create and manufacture lasting steel products, the company’s philosophy and focus on providing their clientele with complete furniture solutions has carried through to today – more than 95 years later. From these early beginnings, the team at Krost established their major pillars of service: incomparable delivery, highest quality of product and the fairest of prices for the end-user. And while these key principles date back to the brand’s foundations many, many years ago, they remain today as a key touchstone. For generations, however, the annual Krost catalogue has sat at the core of their approach to market. Each year, the team publish a catalogue of the latest commercial design innovations – always with a focus to servicing the ever-increasing need for wellbeing and optimum ergonomy in the professional environment. Having taken home the gold for Best B2C Office Supplies Catalogue at the Australian Catalogue Association Awards last year, for 2017 their offering is bound to be a big contender this year as well. Inevitably, the Krost signature style is represented exquisitely throughout their 2017 Catalogue. Everywhere, that is, are those clean sweeping vital lines, integrated illustrations and technical etchings – all presented with a high degree of intelligence that technical information is a pleasure to digest, and certainly not a chore. Celebrating the need for infusing health into the commercial space, each item is carefully curated to display how heights or angles in the design can be modified by any end-user – a democratic nod to the sheer scope of diversity in the commercial sector’s workforce. But while many will continue to question the veracity of such traditional marketing activities in today’s increasingly digital world, Krost understand the inherent value of the printed artefact. You see, their catalogue serves as a pointed reminder for the Australian A+D community that while a majority will remain dedicated to the strength of the digital world, there's also a lot to be said for those same generations' desire to interact with more material marketing collateral. In a remarkable 2013 study conducted by ADMA and APost, Australian consumers falling between the ages of 18 to 40-years old displayed a pointed preference for engaging with print marketing collateral over its digital, audio or televisual counterparts. An incredible 72% of surveyed individuals stated that they were more than likely to retain the print collateral in their possession after initial reading to refer to again later. Meanwhile, that same group were tested for the duration of time they spent with print collateral as opposed to other marketing platforms. On average, the median length of time that focus group spent on digital/televisual/audio marketing options was less than 15 seconds in total – print, however, garnered a 48% engagement increase by comparison. Geared precisely towards addressing these consumers’ desires for more trust-worthy, non-aggressive and informative needs, the 2017 Krost Business Furniture Catalogue aims to provide an intimate one-on-one conversation between the commercial sector and the Krost brand. Through an admixture of crisp photography with a rich depth of field and the tactility of glossy stock, their catalogue appeals to the intellectual and emotional connectors of the reader. And while this catalogue's predecessor last year knocked out some pretty heavy competition, once again, the team at Krost have approached supporting the market for design with stunning creative, informative material and prose in their 2017 catalogue. In their own words, "we want to make it easy for you". Where "it" might mean work, decision making, or peace of mind, in any case (or indeed, all cases) Krost have once again demonstrated remarkable foresight and ingenuity in their space.

Irwandy Tan, the Director of Andatech, said that the Soberlive, which is certified to Australian Standards AS3547 for accuracy, is designed specifically to fully utilise the Andatech Hub online to consolidate testing data. “Breathalysers today require OHS staff to manually input details, connect and export data to a PC,” Mr Tan said. “The Soberlive takes all that hassle away and reduces risk.” With the Soberlive breathalyser, users log in using an existing access card or a user ID and pin number to take a test. Test results are synced directly with the Andatech Hub server via WIFI. Managers can access test records online by logging in or live as they come through. Managers can also set BAC limits, email notification preferences, and create user ID’s and pins for employees through the Soberlive administrator panel.  “The Soberlive will really assist the enforcement of workplace alcohol policies seamlessly, especially in companies with multiple locations requiring on-site testing,” Mr Tan said.  The Andatech Soberlive breathalyser comes with a built-in straw dispenser and houses a 9-inch tablet for administrator access and to display videos and test results. Videos can be uploaded directly or wirelessly online, and live syncing make company-wide announcements or video advertising easy. The Soberlive can also be customised for licensed venues such as pubs, bars, hotels, stadiums, clinics, hospitals, public places, and more. Mr Tan said that RFID access and Paypass payment will be added in the near future to the Soberlive to fully utilise this. Equipped with a large electrochemical fuel cell sensor, the Soberlive breathalyser is designed for exceptional accuracy and long lifespan for high volume testing. Similar to law enforcement breathalysers, the Soberlive provides readings specific 3 decimal place BAC readings at an accuracy of +/- 0.005%BAC at 0.050%BAC. "Another great feature of the Soberlive is that it can take an unlimited number of tests before it requires calibration," Mr Tan added. In addition, its sensor is removable for convenient replacement. Andatech recommends that the Soberlive sensor is calibrated every 6 months to maintain its accuracy.    Visit Andatech for more technical information on the Soberlive breathalyser.

Built around best practices for early childhood education through the lense of play, NUBO supports play and educational growth through exploration and connection. The new centre, located in Sydney’s Alexandria, is suitable for children 0-10 years and officially launches today. NUBO tapped into brand and design expertise across the Collective. Frost* Design created the strategy, identity, branded collateral and promotional items; Urbanite was asked to deliver signage and environmental design across the 768sqm floor space, and The Nest designed and developed the NUBO website. Commenting on the idea and build of the new play centre, NUBO’s Chief Imagination Officer said, “The aim of NUBO is to steer away from the typical play centre clichés of bright colours, plastic toys and computer screens. We are promoting a sense of ‘pure play’ through a beautiful, clean and considered space where parents and children can interact during the entire play process.” To articulate the notion of ‘pure play’ in a way that could resonate with both parents and children, the concept needed to be anchored by a core creative idea. Imagined by Frost*Design, the word Nubo translates as ‘cloud’ in Esperanto, a language invented in the late 1870’s to foster harmony between people from different countries. The creative idea itself was inspired by the brand name. “We then came up with the idea of cloud gazing that conjures up unique and different things for different people,” said Ant Donovan, Group Creative Director, Frost*collective. “This singular idea – of exercising the imagination - informed the architectural design concept, while also steering the direction of our brand identity and feeding into Urbanite’s branded environment signage strategy.” The logo utilises the ‘B’ as a cloud device, and this is carried across all brand touch points and integrated into the illustration style. The outcome is a childlike, stunningly simple and versatile brand expression that speaks directly to the audience and is unquestionably consistent with the brand’s intent. NUBO’s environment offers a range of elements and tools to nurture healthy minds, bodies and spirits. Features include a stunning library weaved around a giant hot air balloon where kids can curl up to read their favourite book; a building room full of Big Blue Blocks, MagFormers and Kaleido Gears; a zone for active play including a giant climbing frame where little ones can slide, climb and hide; the Nubo Café with an emphasis on healthy, wholesome food made fresh to order; a range of children’s master classes including cooking, art, music and coding; and facilitated play sessions. “We know that play nourishes children’s early development and we want NUBO to be part of that journey,” Nubo’s Chief Imagination Officer continued."Working with Joey Ho and the Frost*collective team has been an exciting and enriching experience. The outcome is quite stunning and we have already received incredibly positive feedback from parents and children who have visited.” Concluded Donovan, “Watching kids interact in an environment offers real insights into the learning process. Seeing kids play at NUBO, I witnessed a genuine and honest delight indicating that if children have the opportunity to interact with quality spaces their interactions can be incredibly valuable.” -ends-  Credits Group Creative Director: Anthony Donovan, Frost*collective Senior Designer: Alex Dalmau, Frost*DesignJunior Designer: Kieran Mistry, Frost*Design Strategy Director: Catriona Burgess, Frost*collectiveStrategist: Jeanne Ogilvie, Frost*collective Client Services Director: Emma Stone, Frost*Design Account Director: Max Delplanque, Frost*DesignSenior Digital Producer: Kate West, The NestSenior Digital Designer: Zion Wu, The Nest Developers: Minh Hoang & Isaac Martin, The NestDesign Manager: Hannah Radford, UrbaniteEnvironments Design Director: Maria Briganti, UrbaniteDesigner: Yvonne Tong, Urbanite  About Frost*collective We are a collective of strategists, built-environment specialists, digital innovators and highly creative designers who are dedicated to designing a better world with every project.

The model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act highlights certain types of workplace incidents that should they occur at your workplace, you must notify the regulators. They are: ·       the death of a person ·       a serious injury or illness, or ·       a dangerous incident arising out of work carried out by a business, undertaking or a workplace. Notifiable incidents relate to any person—whether an employee, contractor or member of the public. If a notifiable incident occurs the model WHS Act requires: ·       immediate notification to the regulator, after becoming aware of it ·       written notification within 48 hours should this be requested by the regulator, and ·       preservation of the incident site until an inspector arrives or directs otherwise. WorkSafe Australia has compiled a fact sheet which will help you decide whether the regulator needs to be notified of a work-related injury, illness or dangerous incident under the Act. The Notifiable incident must be reported to the regulator in your jurisdiction. Below is a link to the Australian contact details of who should be notified in your area: Some types of work-related dangerous incidents must be notified even if no-one is injured i.e. including “Near Misses”. A dangerous incident includes both immediate serious risks to health or safety and, also a risk from an immediate exposure to a substance which is likely to create a serious risk to health or safety in the future, for example asbestos or hazardous chemicals. Remember that only work-related incidents are notifiable. An incident is not notifiable just because it happens at or near a workplace e.g. if someone were to have a fatal heart attack. Work-related incidents may affect people outside the workplace. These may still be notifiable if they involve a death, serious illness or injury or a dangerous incident. When gathering information to report an incident, you will need to know the following: ·       What happened? ·       When did it happen? ·       Where did it happen? ·       Who did it happen to? ·       How and where are they being treated (if applicable?) ·       Who is the person conducting the business or undertaking (there may be more than one)? ·       What has/is being done? ·       Who is the person doing the notification? How you respond immediately after a serious incident occurs and in the days following is critical. The myosh HSEQ Software package is designed to make this process easier for you: ·       Remember you have a Management System in place to assist you in dealing with this. Follow the procedure. ·       Evoke your company’s Emergency Response procedure. ·       Notify the correct authority, Workers Compensation and all the appropriate people in the company ·       Maintaining communication with family and colleagues of the injured person is vital ·       Undertake an Incident investigation. The myosh Incident Investigation Module will lead you through this step by step procedure ·       Instigate all necessary actions to prevent the incident from reoccurring. myosh has an Actions Module in which you can create Actions, ensure that they are sent to all the correct persons and track their status. ·       Our Injury Management Module which will also further support you in this process Organisations across the globe have been using myosh to manage and improve work safety for over 10 years.  myosh features over 100 cloud based modules that integrate with intuitive action management.  Results are analysed, shared and improved with powerful reporting tools and dashboards. myosh mobile simplifies inspections, incident and hazard reporting and promotes a shared culture of responsibility for safety.  visit http://myosh.com/   References: http://www.healthandsafetyhandbook.com.au/what-to-do-when-a-serious-injury-occurs-in-your-workplace/ http://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/sites/swa/whs-information/workplace-incidents-reporting/pages/workplace-incidents-reporting http://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/sites/swa/about/publications/pages/incident-notification-fact-sheet
