Online PR News – 16-June-2014 – Globalisation has brought in numerous foreign architects to work in India. Some have contributed to the betterment of the Indian urban and built environment, and some have not. Neverhtheless, foreign architects tend to charge higher fees because of the higher costs of their doing work in their own countries., stated Dr. Ken Yang Principal of Hamzah & Yeang, and one of the key note speakers at Skyscrapers and Prefab India Summit, 24-25, July at The Leela, Mumbai.

He believes that the Green design is an inevitability, if we are to have a sustainable future. In less than the next 10 years or so, almost every architect in the world will be applying green design, which will become second nature to their way of practice. Green building design basically is useful to balance environmental responsibility, community sensitivity, occupant comfort and well-being, and resource efficiency.

Dr. Ken Yeang is an architect, masterplanner and ecologist who is best known for his signature eco-architecture and eco-masterplanning buildings and projects, that have a distinctive verdant green aesthetic. He will be speaking about The Idea of Eco-Skyscrapers, elaborating on defining the alternate approach to community housing, converting skyscrapers into Eco Towers and challenges of building Eco Towers in India.

Lalit Kumar Jain, CMD of Kumar Builders & Chairman of CREDAI, also known as Mr. Incredible & Green Man, will be speaking at the summit on the crucial topic of Urbanization Opportunities and Challenges. He will address the cause of physical growth in urban areas as well as the opportunities therein and explore the critical role of private capital in real estate.

Participants will get a comprehensive understanding of how urbanization can be a driving force for the economy. Additionally, the summit will feature ground breaking new project presentations on building skyscrapers in India, role of Government in construction of skyscrapers, understanding the concept of Green Buildings for sustainable living, and structural safety for tall buildings to name a few. The summit is supported by the Builders Association of India (BAI).

Controlling the Finish of Natural Metal Roofing

Controlling the Finish of Natural Metal Roofing

Metal Roof NetworkAn architect contacted us the other day with an interesting question. She asked whether it’s possible to control the finish on our natural steel diamond shingles, or whether the patina will simply develop on its own over time.

It’s a great question, and there are long and short answers. With most natural metals (steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, etc.), exposure to weather begins the process of corrosion that is referred to as “patina.” In some metals it continues rather quickly, and in others it’s a very slow process. The slower the process, the more “corrosion resistant” the metal. In the case of copper, the patina that forms is famous for helping protect the base metal and making copper very corrosion resistant and quite beautiful in the process.

Metal Roof NetworkNatural carbon steel doesn’t have the corrosion resistance of a metal like copper and so the patina that forms isn’t as protective of the base metal (as in the case of copper), which is why the corrosion process tends to be more rapid. While it corrodes (“rust” is the term applied to steel) it can be quite lovely in the eyes of many. If one were to install a steel roof, allow it to react with the air and rain for a while, and then decide that they wanted to arrest further corrosion (“Let’s stop it right there!”), it is possible to apply a clear sealer over top of the rusted roof to prevent further corrosion. The clear sealer could be rolled on or sprayed, and even though painting a sealer onto a sloped roof poses its own set of logistical issues, you wouldn’t be the first to take on such a project.

So the short answer is, yes, you can control the finish of natural metal roofs. The feasibility and cost of such a task, however, will depend on the roof itself. If you’re considering such a project, I’d be very interested in learning about what you have on the drawing board! Contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
