Detail makes all the difference on tiling projects, which is why BAL – market-leaders in full tiling solutions – have introduced a range of new shades to the Micromax2 grout range that take influence from the natural environment and the changing seasons.

The 11 new shades take inspiration from the world around us and nature through changing seasons.

Team UK – Ready For Action @worldskillsuk

Team UK – 37 of the brightest and best young apprentices (and former apprentices) – is in a Russian rush to get started at the ‘Skills Olympics’ in Kazan, which opens in front of 54,000 spectators tomorrow (Thursday August 22nd).

The World Cup (cricket or football), the Olympic Games or any other sporting occasion just pale into insignificance in terms of their real importance to the future of our nation.

These young stars have already spent up to four years competing and training in order to reach the elite level they are at which enables them to compete against the best on the world stage.

THE FUTURE IS MODULAR @dice_consulting

IT’S no secret that the UK is suffering from a housing crisis. Modular homes are seen as the answer. Modular homes are designed to be incredibly energy efficient – some costing just £1 per day to run – and efficient to manufacture – with some developments boasting a one-week onsite build time. What’s not to get excited about? 

But it’s not just architects and contractors who are having all the fun in developing this new approach to housing. Engineers are also challenging the norm when it comes to creating eco-friendly and efficient-to-erect homes.

“Compared to the design of standard residential homes, modular homes are a completely different product and require a wholly new approach,” said Wayne Oakes, director at civil and structural engineering practice, Dice.

Housebuilder and social enterprise develop innovative modular housing design @HomesByCarlton @Fusion21SocEnt @CoreHausNB

Ambitious North East housebuilder Homes by Carlton is trialling an innovative modular house type that could have a major impact on the new homes market and the environment.

The County Durham-based property developer is currently building two of the new designs on its latest new homes site at Cathedral Gates, a mix of 14 three and four-bed detached and semi-detached homes at Chilton, eight miles from Durham City.

These new-style designs – called CoreHaus – will significantly reduce construction times, build costs and have less impact on the environment than more traditional homes. They offer the flexible combination of being part modular, with a standard, engineered core, that can then be configured to different sizes.

Garden variety security: Top tips @Jacksonsfencing

Jacksons Fencing contributes to ‘safety garden’ at RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show

Garden and security fence manufacturer Jacksons Fencing provided panels for a ‘Safe and Secure’ model garden during the RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show at the beginning of August. The joint initiative, between the RHS, Essex Police and Secured by Design, was a showcase for garden security best practice.

Most burglaries happen during the daytime, with many of these being opportunistic. The model garden demonstrated a number of simple, inexpensive tactics that homeowners can use to minimise the risk of their homes being targeted.
