AWIP’s FL40 Insulated Panels Featured in Architectural Digest

AWIP’s FL40 Insulated Panels Featured in Architectural Digest

The sleek modern façade of the FL40 – FL for “flat” – insulated metal wall panels from All Weather Insulated Panels are featured in Architectural Digest’s article about the new, stylish Ashes & Diamonds Winery in Napa, which opened in early November 2017 to widespread praise for its stunning visual appearance.

Entitled “Discover Napa’s Most Design-Forward, Cutting-Edge New Winery,” the AD article gives insight into the choices made by owner Kashy Khaledi and what he wanted in his winery. To house the production building, FL40 wall insulated metal panels from AWIP are used on a building that, according to the article, is on “a complex that feels somewhere between a Silicon Valley corporate campus and LACMA.”

Of note to the article are the “porthole-style” windows on the winery’s production building. Author Gemma Z. Price called out this feature specifically:

The most striking features of the taller production building… are the circular windows set into the cobra-head-shaped first floor, which extends out over an enclosed VIP-tasting-cum-events room and a ground floor breezeway.

 

Bill Lowery, president of AWIP, notes that architects, contractors and project managers should always keep in mind that design features such as porthole windows and curved walls are possible with IMPs. It’s one of the things passed on to Khaledi and lead architect Barbara Bestor by Steve Kilgannon, owner of the Facility Development Company (FDC) which built Ashes & Diamonds.

“We’re long-time clients of All Weather,” said Kilgannon, “and basically I introduced Kashy and Barbara to the FL40 panel and showed them examples of the product. I talked about the energy efficiency, the panel systems themselves, and their appearance.”

AWIP can take credit for supplying insulated wall and roof panels to more than 100 wineries, as well as to a wide variety of administration, maintenance, cold storage and commercial buildings in North America.

“It’s a new era in building in North America,” said Lowery. “Insulated metal wall panels provide so much to the building owner in savings of construction time, the cost of materials and long-term energy efficiency. They meet every environmental and design need.”

Kilgannon said AWIP panels are scheduled for other FDC wine country projects, including Russian River Brewery in Windsor. Another FDC project in conjunction with AWIP was Venge Vineyards in Calistoga, which was featured on the cover of Green Building & Design’s May-June cover.

Protect Your Patient Privacy Monitoring With These Tips

Protect Your Patient Privacy Monitoring With These Tips

Here is a point to reminders which will help you establish you are starting 2011 with your patient privacy program in the right way.

Healthcare data providers should not throw Protected health information, more so your paper, into the trash. You may think of patient privacy monitoring in terms of protecting electronic patient data, but paper files are also likely to negotiate in the same manner.

patient privacy monitoring

In fact, even if we can move to 60 or 70 percent of medical practices going electronic in the coming few years, paper expulsion is a long way off. As such, you should ensure any Protected health information stored on paper in your office is secure.

In fact, even before the Cognetyx Inc. The act came into being, practices were always considered to handle Protected health information hard, whether on paper or stored electronic data.

Secondly, you should make it a point to know that patients are aware. The Cognetyx Inc. The act imposed an affirmative accountability on the government agency overseeing the HIPAA program to consider compliance breaches. Earlier it was driven by complaints only, but now they have an obligation to affirmatively audit and monitor.

Don’t Forget the Front You may be negotiated patient data in other ways besides electronic and paper data breaches. Perform a walkthrough in your practice or organization to ensure that no other leaks exist.

The government on its part has been hiring people to established compliance and will be providing education programs to the public. And we are expecting a lot of awareness and for patients to be asking more questions about the use of their private health information going forward.

Provides free weekly articles of healthcare it technology and offers advanced Learning Opportunities how to protect electronic patient data in EHR technology for healthcare data breaches.

Easy Rules of Striped Leggings Baby

Easy Rules of Striped Leggings Baby

Regardless of how we thought we’d feel about our baby bumps, the challenges of dressing a pregnant body sometimes seem more difficult to bear than the child itself. But luckily, in the past decade or two, maternity designers have really, err, and delivered. Thanks to changes in the way the pregnant body is viewed, even the most pregnant mamas can look fabulous with a few little tricks.

When our mothers were pregnant with us, maternity clothes was little more than an offshoot of the Striped Leggings Baby tent making trade. Nobody could tell what was going on underneath the big top until the main event was imminent! While body-hugging fabrics may seem frightening at this most weight-sensitive of times, fitted styles are actually the pregnant woman’s best friend — no matter what her size.

Especially when you are heavily pregnant, highlighting rather than hiding the baby bump draws attention to your pregnancy rather than your size. If a shirt that is fitted throughout is too daring for your taste, consider empire-waist tops that are fitted through the shoulders and bust — and pass by the baggy oxfords, shapeless tees and blousy dress tops.

 Don’t buy tapered trousers just because they’re on the rack! To balance your new top-heavy look, shop for a pant with flared legs. A boot cut looks great with almost any shirt and counteracts the extra weight you’re carrying in the belly and butt. A pant that makes you look like a million bucks is worth the extra shopping time.

One of the worst things a pregnant woman can wear is stripes — of any kind. Horizontal stripes are out for the obvious reason that they create a widening effect on an already bulky part of the body. This may work in the second trimester when your bump is tiny and cute, but by the time you are ready to deliver, it can be a bit frightening to behold even if you are the tall and willowy type.

But lest you leap to the seemingly logical conclusion that if horizontal stripes enlarge, then vertical stripes are slimming, consider this: That vertical-stripe top may be cute on the rack, but where will those stripes lie when they are draped over a 45-inch belly? From the side, you are going to have layer upon layer of striping, with yet more stripes appearing along the rise of your bump. Be sure to strap on the pillow and check out the side view in the mirror before you even think of purchasing that shirt! Chances are, it’s going to look bizarre.

The one exception to the stripe rule is a top with a chevron stripe whose horizontal lines meet at a point over the center of the belly. That type of stripe is indeed flattering from any angle; unfortunately, most striped maternity tops don’t fall into this category. View More
