The term Glasshouse originated from the military prison at Aldershot, which had a glazed roof. Over time, the word Glasshouse came to be applied to all military prisons. Aldershot prison, which was also called the Detention Barracks, had begun as several barracks in 1856, before being replaced by a single, large building, modelled on the then civilian prison system in 1870. This building was destroyed by fire in a riot of 1946 when the prisoners (labeled as ‘mutineers’ in the press) were protesting about their rations and conditions given that the Second World War was over.
Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the space. An interior designer is someone who plans, researches, coordinates, and manages such projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, space planning, site inspections, programming, research, communicating with the stakeholders of a project, construction management, and execution of the design.

In the past, interiors were put together instinctively as a part of the process of building. The profession of interior design has been a consequence of the development of society and the complex architecture that has resulted from the development of industrial processes. The pursuit of effective use of space, user well-being and functional design has contributed to the development of the contemporary interior design profession. The profession of interior design is separate and distinct from the role of interior decorator, a term commonly used in the US. The term is less common in the UK where the profession of interior design is still unregulated and therefore, strictly speaking, not yet officially a profession.

An electrical enclosure is a cabinet for electrical or electronic equipment to mount switches, knobs and displays and to prevent electrical shock to equipment users and protect the contents from the environment. The enclosure is the only part of the equipment which is seen by users. It may be designed not only for its utilitarian requirements, but also to be pleasing to the eye. Regulations may dictate the features and performance of enclosures for electrical equipment in hazardous areas, such as petrochemical plants or coal mines. Electronic packaging may place many demands on an enclosure for heat dissipation, radio frequency interference and electrostatic discharge protection, as well as functional, esthetic and commercial constraints.
Green affordable housing is reasonably priced housing that incorporates sustainable features. The phenomenon has become increasingly common in the United States with the adoption of state and local policies that favor or require green building practices for publicly owned or funded buildings. Potential benefits of green affordable housing include lower energy cost burden and improved health. One challenge to green affordable housing is the tendency to overlook long-term benefits in the face of higher upfront cost. The challenge for green housing advocates is to see to the life cycle cost of the building. Many affordable housing projects already find it a challenge to raise capital to finance basic affordable housing. Green affordable housing has taken form in traditionally wooden homes and most recently with ‘upcycling’ shipping containers.
Metal Roofing Offer Though not the first thing you notice,yet a roof has much to say about a home’s style.Roof shapes and material differ widely , depending upon the usage,…
Metal can be used as a roof covering in several different ways. The main forms are based on sheet-like panels, which may be flat or profiled, and either prefabricated, or formed on site, but metal can also be used to create shingles – formed into shapes similar to tiles, shakes or slates.
Sheet metal roofing is typically joined by standing seams or rolled joints. These have no exposed mechanical fasteners, but use a clipped, or rolled design which creates a distinctive projecting seam. This is a very flexible system that can be pre-fabricated or formed on site, and used to create straight or curved seams.
A wide range of profiled and corrugated metal roof panels (sometimes referred to as ‘wriggly tin’) are also available, historically associated with industrial buildings, as well as built-up roofing systems and trims and flashings to form valleys, ridges, rooflights, aprons, sills, corners, barges and so on.
