dblo Commercial Architects in Fulham

dblo associates architects Clapham, London, have been in operation since 1998. The architectural team encompasses years of experience which means that together they provide a vast range of knowledge and expertise which they bring to each and every one of their projects. Over and above their years of experience which sets them up to be fore-runners within their industry, is their belief that the quality of a person’s surroundings directly influences the quality of that person’s life. This means that whether it’s a public environment, a work environment or our homes, the buildings that we see, work, live and play in, all have influence over our lives.

This may seem like a strange way of looking at it but if we examine this closely, it starts to appear to be quite accurate and realistic. In a recent study, called The Value of Good Design, we learn how buildings and spaces create social and economic value. After a poll was taken in the early 2002, stats and figures were analysed to produce a consist view of how people consider well designed buildings or spaces as having a positive influence over their lives. Apply this to all areas of life and we can see that it is not just our homes which have great importance in our live but so too does our work environment …where we often spend a vast majority of time, sometimes more than we do at home. Having a positive influence on our lives means that not only does the space we surround ourselves with affect our emotional sense of well-being, but it also impact our levels of productivity and physical well-being. It also means that the general value of our life improves and socially the broader community benefits from lower crime rates and better property values. There is no question that the better the environment, the higher the person’s quality of life becomes but we really can extend that to a deeper mind set of well –being and prosperity.

Wouldn’t it be unpleasant to work every day in a space that had no windows to the outdoors? One might feel trapped and engulfed by the workspace. Ergonomically we cannot work well unless the physical set up of the space is suitable to allow us to perform our jobs optimally. Aesthetically, one would naturally function better in a workspace with colour and light than in one without. Similarly, a school would not promote ease of education and learning and pupils would not achieve as highly as those with the benefits of good design. The small things really can have the largest effect on a person’s psyche.

This is what dblo architects Fulham is all about… ensuring that not only are their projects executed with a highest levels of expertise and accuracy but that as a design project, they offer the very best opportunity to explore the lifestyle benefits of quality design. Dblo architects explore the concept of postmodern architecture within their designs, creating buildings and spaces which exceed expectations and creating and enhancing value through design.

Professional Advice and Personal Investment from Lodge Brothers Legal Services

Welcome to the offices of Lodge Brothers Legal Services where our long-standing professional reputation, sustained by our consistently proficient services, guarantees our clients and their families ultimate peace of mind. Lodge Brothers has been assisting families with funerals for over 230 years and it is our personal service which our clients have come to rely on over and above the consistently high levels of quality of legal advice which we provide. Our clients can turn to us for accessible and affordable legal advice in relation to Probate, Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Lodge Brothers we approach our Probate Walton on Thames services with the same high levels of quality advice and personal investment, as we do with all legal services. We know that when a person finds themselves in need of the services of a Legal firm, often the circumstances which surround this need, are inevitably highly stressful. When people find themselves in these stressful situations, quite often it becomes exacerbated by the fact that one doesn’t always know what to do for the best and make the right decisions.

Notwithstanding, often people do not know what needs to be taken care of, simply because they do not have experience with being in these types of situations previously. It is easy to understand how over-whelming certain life events can be, when someone realises all of the legal requirements involved. Legal compliance is not something that we believe a person should have to face on their own.

That’s why we partner with our clients during these times of excessive strain and guide them through the process. Lodge Brothers has firms across the UK, such as our Probate Weybridge office and its here that you can rest assured that you will always find empathetic professionals to offer you an efficient service when you most need it.

Probate is the process of authenticating a last will and testament and finalising all aspects of the estate of a deceased individual and at Lodge Brothers Probate Guilford, we offer 3 levels of Probate service to suit your personal requirements.  Regardless of which level of legal service you choose, you can be assured that you are receiving the very best especially if you chose our level 3 Gold Probate Service which comes highly recommended and is certainly the most comprehensive of all. Designed to relieve you of the heavy burden you face when dealing with the probate process, our level 3 Gold Probate services ensure that probate is obtained quickly and efficiently.

The Big Date….

Never would I ever have thought that one day I would not only consider using, but actually be happy that I decided to use an escort dating service. Dukes of Daisy are like no regular escort service and I’m so glad I found them. In my mid-30’s I suddenly found myself going through a divorce. To be honest, I never expected to actually get divorced which is a little strange considering that I thought about it pretty much all the time. While I was still married, divorce didn’t ever seem like an option... with 2 small children, a house and cat, there was too much going on in my life to focus on the nagging voice in my head telling me on a daily basis how unhappy I was and that as soon as the kids were big I would be out of there!

Then, at 35, life took care of the details for me… as it tends to do and I found myself thrown in the world of divorce, lawyers, and constant turmoil. While my circle of friend’s remains happily married, I found myself in swimming most disconcertingly in the unknown depths of life as a single mother.  No one gives you The Divorce Handbook for times like this! So while my friend’s lives carried on as before, I landed up in a new job, new house and a new dating pool! If you have ever been in this situation, you know what is out there and let me tell you, it’s a little scary. My free time became about trying not to cry myself to sleep over a large packet of crisps every night and facing a social life as a singleton.

I tried it all… going to clubs on my own, just to get out of house, going to work events on my own, dreading each and every minute of it, as the bosses wife accosted me in the ladies room, asking when I was going to start dating again. Being set up by married girlfriends, with some younger man, (because all the good ones are already taken and married at this stage) and awkwardly engaging with a complete stranger with absolutely no mutual interests to the point where crying into that packet of crisps started to look really enticing.

Then the invitation came… a friend of a friend had invited me to her 30th birthday party (the pity invite, no doubt) and a dress up party at that… the theme: dress as your favourite Barbie Doll. The worse part was that I caught wind of the fact that one of my particularly obnoxious ex-dates, was also invited to the party. Knowing that there was NO WAY that I would be going to a Barbie dress up party as “Single Mom Barbie”, possibly the world’s LEAST sexy Barbie doll, which is probably why they never made one! So I made the decision that something had to be done. And that’s when I discovered Dukes of Daisy. The terrifying thought of trying an escort dating service was only surpassed the absolute loathing of the idea of going to a Doll dress up party, and facing my ex, alone.

I did all my research on Dukes of Daisy non-sexual escorts before finally deciding to give it a try, mostly due to the fact that Dukes of Daisy guarantees their service to be totally hassle free, with no emotional drama and headache. Going to the party was so much easier walking into a relative stranger’s party, in dress up clothes, with someone who was so completely relaxed and not at all phased by the circumstances. What a total relief, not having to deal with the lecherous ex but also not having to sit by myself in a corner hoping that someone would take pity on me and include me in their conversation. It wasn’t a late night, I have to be honest, but at the end of it, my escort had been such a gentleman with absolutely no judgement or misguided expectations and I can honestly say that this using Dukes of Daisy was the best idea I have ever had.

How DIY Marquees have changed the marquee industry

How 4m Commercial DIY Marquees are so strong

Our industrial marquee for sale are considerably stronger than the industry standard and indeed our own party tent and classic ranges. This is due to sharing many of the features used in 6m wide structures:

  • Vertical and horizontal roof braces. This gives the roof considerable added strength.
  • Intermediate purlins along each side - half way down each side of the roof is another purlin support - this strengthens the marquee and gives additional support to the roof
  • The wind resistant 2m end panels are covered in a separate article
  • As is the envelope style roof
  • Groundbars are included automatically
  • A gable upright at each end allows for interchangeable side panels
  • All roofs and sides are made from a reliable quality 500gsm rip-stop PVC
  • The strongest shape in construction is a triangle - the additional roof braces make a strong triangular structure giving the marquee frame considerable strength.

We believe all of these features make our 4m commercial marquees the most durable and heavy duty structure of their class in the world.

We are always happy to offer more customised advice for your event, please contact us giving a few details of the event you are planning (type of event, space available, number of guests and diagrams/photographs of the site if possible) and we will be more than happy to advise on your options.

IBS keep downtime to a minimum with hiring service

Industrial Blower Services (IBS) has been operational for more than 30 years and during this time, not only have we become UK’s largest supplier of both new and reconditioned blowers but we have also become experts in our field. IBS provides services extensively across the UK and our clients range vastly, from those in the manufacturing industry to the mining and petrochemical industries and the like. Most Industries, including Food, Beverage, Paper, Health, Water, Packaging, and Pneumatic Conveying require industrial blowers for their manufacturing.

On Site Services Blowers    Vacuum Pumps   Blower Packages

What sets IBS apart however, is that we understand that any machinery downtime is going to cost your business severely. We acknowledge and understand the importance of keeping your factory operational and producing consistently, in order to achieve your manufacturing commitments. All machines, when not properly serviced, will eventually suffer with wear and tear, run down and eventually begin to fail. While servicing your machinery can slow your production down and cost your business, this is in no way comparable to the loss of time, money and production which will occur if your blowers fail to operate during production periods. IBS understands the importance of quality machinery and blowers and fans are an integral part of your production.

In an industry where manufacturing of equipment can take months to produce, we are proud to hold the largest fleet of equipment for hire. Whether it is for a short or a long term project, or just to provide you with a back-up when your own equipment failed you as a result of wear and tear, we can assist you in these emergency or planned situations. Products such as the Zepher blowers, Siemens blowers, and Robuschi blowers are ready at a moment’s notice for collection or drop-off at your site. IBS also has a team of experienced engineers to provide on-site services and technical assistance.
