Preventative Pest Control – A Reliable Defense

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

When people think of home improvement, things like new flooring and paint often come to mind. Aesthetic changes, appliance replacement, wiring, plumbing, and HVAC dominate the field, but it is important not to take the actual structure of your home for granted. Houses withstand all sorts of environmental hazards, but the smallest hazards, and often undetected, may prove the most destructive over time. Rodents and termites create several small holes and burrows, growing and compromising the integrity of your structural support. A solid pest control strategy may be the most important home improvement you didn’t even realize you need.


The eastern subterranean termite is responsible for 80% of the 2.2 billion dollars spent on termite control in the US every year, and for good reason.

Your Office Serves More Than One Purpose

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

Your office serves more than one purpose. You owe it to your business, your staff and your clients – and, ultimately, yourself and your business partners – to ensure it meets all of those purposes in the best way possible.

The main reason you have an office, of course, is to give your staff somewhere to do their work. Unless your business can be done by homeworkers, an office is an essential part of any firm. It is, of course, where you and your employees come to complete their work, but also where your staff meet, communicate and have creative ideas.

Both you and they spend most of their time in the office, so it should be both comfortable and welcoming.

A good impression?

In most cases, your office is also the place where you meet clients. Whether that’s in order to gain more business or to generate new ideas

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

When a brownfield site is being redeveloped for building work, the previous activity on the site may have wreaked environmental havoc on the site, requiring a great deal of clean-up before the site can be effectively used in the future. Environmental risk assessments are therefore a fundamental aspect of any due diligence reporting. These can be an influential factor in any decision relating to commercial property transactions.

Many financial organisations and investment funds are also becoming increasingly aware of the requirement for land investment to be both responsible and sustainable, adding to an already growing emphasis on corporate considerations of environmental impact in all of their actions. The importance of correct, analytical and helpful environmental due diligence cannot be underestimated.

Environmental due diligence should advise not just report

An assessment of the environmental liabilities of a site should not just provide raw data to a client, but should include and

How to Build Your Dream Home Without Breaking the Bank

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

For many people, building a home is a dream. However, building a home is a long process. For some homeowners, the process of building a home takes more time and money than they originally thought it would. It is vital to work with a quality builder during this process.

They Say A Picture Speaks A Thousand Words

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

They say a picture speaks a thousand words. In the housing market these days, no agent would consider taking a property on to their books without having some kind of visual representation, whether it’s a photograph of an existing building or an artist’s impression of a new-build yet to be completed.

However, photographs can be deceptive. The angle and focus of a picture can make a room look considerably larger than it is, and you can’t see beyond the edges of the image. In the past decade or so, more agents have been incorporating floor plans into their property selling tools. Now many sellers insist on having a floor plan. In fact, most home-buyers rate floor plans as being as important as any photographs.

What’s in a Floor Plan?

Architects and builders rely on plans. Professionally produced drawings to scale, using standard symbols and measurements, are essential to convey a
