Georgia City Bucks Wood High-Rise Trend

first_imgWood advocates are perplexedIt isn’t clear what prompted Sandy Springs to alter its building code. City officials haven’t offered any evidence that wood buildings are any less durable or less safe than concrete and steel structures, and the American Wood Council says evidence does not bear that out.Ken Bland, vice president of codes and regulations for the Council, says that Sandy Springs was given reports from the National Fire Protection Association showing that wood-frame buildings are “equal in performance to street and concrete” in multifamily buildings. A study by the Athena Institute for the city of Minneapolis, he added, showed no evidence that wood-frame buildings were being demolished at a pace any faster than steel and concrete buildings.“So we’re perplexed by that,” Bland said in a telephone interview with GBA. “We don’t believe there is a durability issue with respect to wood buildings. We believe any building exposed to the elements requires maintenance… When properly maintained, we know wood buildings will last hundreds of years. The durability doesn’t really pass the sniff test. The fire safety one doesn’t pass.”Asked for a reaction to Tolbert’s claim that “many cities have instituted a requirement for construction with enhanced quality materials,” Bland said, “I would certainly take exception to that statement by the assistant city manager. We honestly do not know of other cities anywhere in the country that have taken a step of this magnitude. There will be certain cities that have fire districts or fire zones, but in terms of a community like Sandy Springs, to my knowledge there’s nothing else like it anywhere else in the U.S.“We just don’t understand the problem they’re trying to solve with this particular ordinance.”One probable outcome Bland said, will be a slowdown in the pace of multifamily development.“It’s no secret that wood-framed buildings are less expensive to construct on a square foot basis than an equivalent steel and concrete building,” he said. “So they are right when they say they want to increase the cost of construction through this restriction. They feel that will slow down growth. The reaction by the development community will be to build less multi-housing in their city.” For some builders and architects, wood is the building material of the future, with lower costs and less embodied energy than concrete and steel and suitable even for structures many stories tall. But in Sandy Springs, Georgia, a city of about 100,000 north of Atlanta, wood has been deemed unsuitable for anything taller than three stories and larger than 100,000 square feet.In a unanimous vote on August 16, the Sandy Springs City Council approved changes in the city’s building code that will prohibit the use of structural wood in multifamily projects of that size and up, even as designers elsewhere around the world embrace an expanded use of wood, particularly cross-laminated timber, for multistory construction.The change in Sandy Springs means “certain enumerated building elements (including the structural frame, load-bearing walls, etc.) are to be made of noncombustible materials.”In a memo explaining the proposal in advance of the vote, Assistant City Manger Jim Tolbert said, “In order to preserve the safety of persons inhabiting buildings above a certain height, many cities have instituted a requirement for construction with enhanced quality materials that increase the durability and longevity of the buildings.”Tolbert didn’t name any of those cities and did not respond to a message asking for more information. Likewise, the city’s director of communications and its community development director didn’t respond to requests for comment.The city posted a copy of the ordinance and Tolbert’s memo at its website, but there are no minutes detailing the City Council’s discussion. RELATED ARTICLES Can Wood Replace Concrete and Steel in Skyscrapers?Cross-Laminated Timber Condos Planned in Portland A Portland, Oregon, architectural firm, for example, is planning an eight-story condo building called Carbon12 that would be built with CLT components. In Vancouver, Canada, an 18-story hybrid student residence combining concrete and timber is underway. The $51.5 million project should be finished next year. A 1,000-foot tall high-rise made from timber has been proposed in London.A single company in the U.S. — D.R. Johnson in southern Oregon — currently makes CTL components, although they have a longer track record in Europe. Still, proponents point to a number of advantages timber buildings have over concrete and steel structures, including shorter construction schedules, lower cost, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.Architect Michael Green, who is working on a seven-story, all timber building in Minneapolis, said it has been difficult changing perceptions about wood, but that engineering large timber buildings “is truthfully the easy part.”“We’re at the beginning of a revolution, I hope, in the way we build, because this is the first new way to build a skyscraper in probably 100 years or more,” he told a TED audience a few years ago.Last year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded two $1.5 million grants in its Tall Wood Building Competition to promote the use of lumber and mass timber building products. Elsewhere, wood is gaining groundThe ordinance in Sandy Springs seems jarring given the widespread use of wood in multifamily buildings. Conventional stick-building is common — accounting for 87% of multifamily buildings in 2015, according to the website Construction Dive. A number of building designers are growing enthusiastic about the potential for cross-laminated timber (CLT), a kind of heavy duty structural plywood, for constructing multistory buildings. Advocates for steel and concrete like itThe National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, however, had a much different reaction. In a report on the Sandy Springs vote, Construction Dive quoted an association spokesman as saying that Sandy Springs was heading in the right direction.“It’s a very simple equation,” said Kevin Lawlor, spokesman for the association’s Build with Strength initiative, in a press release following the decision. “The stronger the building materials you use, the safer occupants will be. The Sandy Springs Council set an example for the rest of the country.”Rahim Zadeh, technical director for the Steel Stud Manufacturers Association, said that steel-framed buildings don’t create the fire hazards that wood buildings do, according to Construction Dive. Plus, he said, steel is straighter and more consistent than wood, and is resistant to termites.“Steel is more green because of the high recycle content of steel studs,” Zadeh told Construction Dive.last_img read more

first_imgTAYLOR, B.C. – At a District of Taylor Council Meeting on Tuesday, August 6, Council made the approval to go ahead with upgrading a section of the potable water line on Willow Drive.Since its installation in 2010, District Staff say there have been multiple repairs due to ground movement and two complete failures of the ductile iron pipe, which was caused by corrosion.Due to corrosion, in 2017 the District replaced a portion of the existing material with a more resilient type. Then in June of this year, the District put out a tender for the rest of the water line to be replaced from ductile iron pipe to high-density polyethylene at an estimated price of $176,000, with funding from the Water Capital Reserves.Council made the decision to award the potable water line replacement project to Big League Utilities Corp. for the amount of $289,044.last_img read more

The Pitchers With The Best New Stuff This Season

Montgomery again! He shows up twice on my lists: No. 1 under MLB’s most-improved four-seamers and also among its most-improved curveballs. As was the case with his fastball, Montgomery managed to pick up more than 3 mph on his curve, to go with almost 700 extra rpm; it now breaks just over 50 percent more than it did last season. Those two drastically improved pitches go a long way toward explaining how Montgomery’s ERA has dropped to half of what it was during his lackluster 2015 season.We tend to frame velocity changes in terms of a pitcher’s fastball, but a slower curveball can cause problems, too. The Kansas City Royals’ Yordano Ventura has maintained his four-seam heat just fine, but he’s lost about 2 mph of velocity (plus some spin) on his curveball. All else being equal, slower pitches — of all types — are less effective because they give the batter more time to react and decide whether to swing. Perhaps for that reason, Ventura’s curve has gone from his best pitch to a far more mediocre offering, just as his ERA and fielding independent pitching have ballooned.Change-ups PITCHERCHANGE/100 5Randall Delgado-0.445John Lamb+0.31 3Mike Montgomery-0.543Jordan Lyles+0.34 8Vance Worley-0.108R.A. Dickey+0.09 10Trevor May-0.2910Hector Neris+0.22 3David Phelps-0.363CC Sabathia+0.41 7Hector Santiago-0.277Chris Sale+0.34 Every major league pitcher’s career is built from the raw materials of his pitch repertoire. Whether fastball, cutter or curve, all of a hurler’s offerings have to work together to help him confuse hitters and evade bats. And with a couple of months of 2016 PITCHf/x data in the books, I wanted to find out which players’ individual pitches have improved the most relative to last year.First, I had to quantify “improvement.”1I used PitchInfo data for all the analysis in this piece, since it corrects for park effects and improves on MLB Advanced Media’s raw pitch classifications. For each pitch type I looked at — four-seam fastball, slider, curve and change-up — I built a model to predict how much the pitch’s run value depended on its velocity versus spin rate.2Specifically, I used a mixed model that factored out the effects of the batter, pitcher, catcher and count in order to home in on the value of velocity and break for each pitch type. Then I looked at all the pitchers who had thrown more than 500 pitches each in both 2015 and 2016 and calculated the change in value for each pitch type in a pitcher’s arsenal, based on how its velocity and spin changed.Most pitches stayed close to their 2015 predecessors. For instance, the correlation between 2015 and 2016 for velocity on four-seam fastballs was 0.9, and the average velocity changed by only three-quarters of a mph, so it’s rare for a pitcher to completely reinvent a pitch from year to year. But whether because of injury or even a new grip, some individual pitches did change substantially. Here are the biggest year-over-year improvements — and declines — for each pitch in 2016, starting with fastballs:Fastballs 6Jesse Hahn-0.306Dallas Keuchel+0.36 Negative run values are better — the pitcher is allowing fewer runs.Source: Pitchinfo LARGEST IMPROVEMENTSLARGEST DECLINES Negative run values are better — the pitcher is allowing fewer runs.Source: Pitchinfo 5Dillon Gee-0.355Carlos Torres+0.34 LARGEST IMPROVEMENTSLARGEST DECLINES Biggest changes in four-seam fastballs from 2015 to 2016, by change in runs per 100 pitches 2Mike Wright-0.542Madison Bumgarner+0.36 Change-ups are generally deployed less frequently than the other pitch types I’ve mentioned, but they can be particularly potent weapons against opposite-handed batters. One pitcher who seems to have discovered this is lefty Padres starter Christian Friedrich, who has traditionally struggled to retire righties. With more reliance on a newfound change-up that spins nearly twice as much as last year’s version, Friedrich has managed to lower his weighted on-base average allowed to right-handers from .409 to .274, and his overall results have improved as well (2.12 ERA, 3.36 FIP).But then there’s Kendall Graveman, who shows up on three of the lists: He has the most-improved slider, fourth-most-improved fastball and the ninth-most-improved change-up. In theory, Graveman should be using his array of better pitches to overwhelm hitters; instead, he’s sporting a poor 5.28 ERA, an even worse 5.29 FIP and a depressingly sub-replacement-level WAR. When pitchers modify their repertoires, they tend to trade speed for spin, or vice versa. But in his transition from starter to bullpen ace, Seattle Mariners thrower Mike Montgomery has managed to add both speed and spin to his four-seam fastball this year, rapidly making it one of the most fearsome offerings in MLB. Montgomery’s heater now averages 95 mph, up from 91.3 mph last year, and it spins more than 150 revolutions per minute faster, giving it more “rise” than most fastballs.Montgomery’s trip to the bullpen at age 26 revitalized his fastball, but that makes him an exception: Most pitchers see their stuff decline from year to year. Specifically, pitchers tend to surrender velocity as they age, forcing them to become craftier — or lose their jobs. Take Dallas Keuchel, last year’s American League Cy Young winner, as an example of a pitcher with a deteriorating fastball: He’s lost almost 2 mph off his four-seamer since 2015, along with 290 rpm of rotation.

Although the man they call Thor has seen his slider slow a bit since his initial April outings — its average velocity has fallen from 93 mph heat to 91 mph — it’s still the fastest in baseball, and the increase has made it borderline unhittable. 5Danny Duffy-0.305John Danks+0.39 1Mike Montgomery-0.501Mike Leake+0.56 8Jose Alvarez-0.338Justin Verlander+0.26 Not bad for a pitch he threw only 2 percent of the time a year ago!Syndergaard gained all of that velocity at the cost of some spin on his slider, giving it slightly less horizontal movement.4Among sliders, the correlation between changes in velocity and spin rate was a statistically significant -0.34. Even more so than with the fastball, the trade-off between a slider’s speed and spin rate is a delicate balance that can make or break its effectiveness.Curveballs A former prospect, Graveman hasn’t converted his stuff into measurably good results, joining the long list of pitchers whose raw ability doesn’t translate into dominance on the mound.That’s why every hurler is more than just the sum of his pitches. Individual offerings play off each other in unexpected — and still inexplicable — ways. A pitcher’s stuff can be fantastic, but without command and control, the results will be poor. Factors such as deception and sequencing still resist most sabermetric analysis, and so a significant part of how pitching works remains unknown. In other words, we can measure what makes a pitch great, but it’s much more difficult to figure out what makes a pitcher excel. read more

Ohio State footballs defensive line shows promise

Playing Saturday’s Spring Game in Cincinnati might have been unfamiliar territory for many of Ohio State’s football players, but not for sophomore defensive end Adolphus Washington, a product of Cincinnati’s Taft High School. Although the Gray team lost 31-14 to the Scarlet team during the contest at Paul Brown Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, Washington had a breakout performance. As a starting defensive end on the Gray defense, with a lineup that included the majority of the Buckeyes’ first-team defensive players, Washington led all players in the game with four sacks. “I just went out there and played football,” Washington said. “I just did what my coaches told me to do, and it just happened I got four sacks.” Washington was not the only sophomore defensive end to get to the quarterback often Saturday. Starting opposite Washington, Noah Spence had three sacks. As rotational players last season, Washington had three sacks over the course of the season while Spence had one. This season, though, the Buckeyes are relying upon Washington and Spence to step up as starters. OSU is replacing its entire starting defensive line from last season, including defensive ends John Simon and Nathan Williams, who combined for 11 sacks over the course of last season. While both players surpassed their sack totals from last season and accounted for more than half of the combined total of last year’s starters, the numbers might need to be taken with a grain of salt. Both Scarlet team quarterbacks, junior Braxton Miller and redshirt senior Kenny Guiton, were wearing black no-contact jerseys in the game, meaning the opposing rushers only had to touch them to record a sack. That’s also not accounting for the escape ability Miller and Guiton have to break free from contact and run away from pass-rushers with their athleticism. “You’re not allowed to finish any of those sacks, so you never know how that’s going to go with a kid like Braxton ’cause he’s so elusive, but I thought Adolphus was in the backfield an awful lot,” said cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs. Nonetheless, coach Urban Meyer expressed confidence in both Washington and Spence following Saturday’s contest. “Adolphus Washington has really raised his level of play … he’s a starter at Ohio State,” Meyer said. “We saw him today just have his way with our offensive line. “I am very pleased with Noah Spence,” Meyer added. Although Miller’s black jersey didn’t stop Spence from laying a big hit on the quarterback in one practice earlier this spring, the quarterback did not have to worry about getting hit by either Spence or Washington on Saturday, as Meyer warned the team Wednesday that he would “carry a baseball bat” to prevent it from happening again. Miller did, however, get a first-hand look at the sophomore pass-rushers coming after him. “Noah Spence and Adolphus, they work hard,” Miller said. “They have to fill big shoes from the guys who left last year … we just got to keep working with the two tackles.” With redshirt senior left tackle Jack Mewhort held out of the lineup for precautionary reasons, sophomore Taylor Decker started at left tackle for the Scarlet offense while redshirt sophomore Chase Farris started on the right side. They were on the wrong end of the dominance by Spence and Washington, with both players giving up multiple sacks. Decker and Farris are currently competing to start at right tackle this fall. Following Saturday’s game, Meyer expressed concern with the progress of that competition, calling the right tackle position the Buckeyes’ “one glaring weakness” on offense. “We have a legitimate concern about who that player (right tackle) is,” Meyer said. “Unless we get that fixed, there goes the best offense in the Big Ten. You can’t play with four linemen. One of those young players has got to step up, and they haven’t this spring.” One of five Buckeyes from the Cincinnati area, Washington was not the only Buckeye to stand out in front of a hometown crowd. Starting senior left guard Andrew Norwell played on the Scarlet offensive line, while sophomore safety Kevin Niehoff made an interception coming out of the end zone late in the fourth quarter. Washington said it was a “real good experience” to play in the city he grew up in. “I’m glad we was able to come here and play our Spring Game instead of going up to Cleveland,” Washington said. “I finally get a chance to play in front of the people that don’t get to make it to Columbus or wherever else we’re playing.” The Buckeyes’ day in Cincinnati also included a pregame talk from Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. Two members of the OSU coaching staff, Meyer and Coombs, are from Cincinnati as well. Coombs said Washington is a “born and raised Cincinnati product” who has the potential to be a “real special player for a long time.” “Adolphus is a great kid … a phenomenal athlete, has gained a lot of good power, muscle mass and he plays really hard out there on the field,” Coombs said. “His pass rush is really good, but I tell you what, Adolphus is carrying over a 3.0 (grade point average at OSU) too. So for a kid like that to be out there in a college environment and to have come from where he is from … you couldn’t be more proud of a kid than Adolphus Washington.” read more
