UBuildNet Publishes Whitepaper for Construction Industry: Finding a Contractor (and more) in the 21st Century Jul 31, 2014 03:31AM

Bayville NJ (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

The Universal Building Network (UBuildNet.com) has released a whitepaper that explores the problems with current social media being used by the construction industry and proposes a solution.

The whitepaper cites 2012 and 2013 Construction Marketing Association (CMA) survey results for questions answered by construction professionals as to how they are using social media, whether they have purchased advertising on these sites, and the impact their social media use has had on their businesses. UBuildNet's whitepaper suggests that the single most important objective contractors have for using social media is to increase contracting and resulting income, and that the CMA surveys indicate that the most commonly used social media is not serving that purpose well. UBuildNet asserts that the whitepaper "…interprets 'effectiveness' to mean that the social media being used leads to real connections with real people that yield real business." The paper further states that today's social media was never designed for that purpose, and that most social media sites actually restrict or prohibit members (including companies) from using their account for solicitous networking and direct business promotion.

The UBuildNet whitepaper proposes niche social networking as a solution to these problems. It provides a list of key functions that contractors should look for in a niche network to help them increase business. It also lists additional features that would not only support contractor networking and marketing, but would make the niche site a one-stop-shop for a variety of daily operational and administrative functions for member businesses.

The whitepaper also references recent articles posted online that address the potential of niche construction networking: "How Niche Social Networking Sites Empower New Businesses," written by Andre Borque, Managing Editor of Technorati Media, which was posted on SocialMediaToday on July 1, 2014, and "Would You Join a Social Media Network for Construction Professionals?," written by Kimberly Hegerman, posted on FORConstructionPROS.com on July 24, 2014.

UBuildNet's whitepaper, which makes the observation that "…the contractor game has changed more radically in the past 15 years than it has in the entire century before…," ultimately predicts that "…within the next five years, niche networking will become the social networking choice for anyone looking to find a contractor…and to do real business with them."

Greater Birmingham leads UK Foreign Direct Investment surge Jul 31, 2014 03:30AM

Birmingham, UK (PRWEB UK) 31 July 2014

There were more foreign investment projects in Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP (GBSLEP) last year than any other English region, new data reveals from a recent UKTI report.

The number of FDI –foreign direct investment – projects in the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP area rose by 57%, to 77, which trumped the 37 other regions, data for the 2014 financial year shows.

The region also created the most jobs – a total of 4,841 – a 98% increase on the previous year, compared to 3,350 at its nearest challenger New Anglia LEP.

The 77 foreign investment success in Greater Birmingham demonstrates support for the region's traditional strengths like advanced manufacturing and the automotive industry, and backing for fast-growing new industries like digital media and IT services.

The data is revealed in a UKTI report, which states: "Greater Birmingham and Solihull saw the biggest increase in 13/14 with project numbers increasing by 57 per cent from 49 in 2012/13 to 77 in 13/14.

"Black Country, Lancashire and New Anglia all saw large percentage increases in FDI projects with an additional 14, 19, and 13 projects respectively as compared 2012/13. 3 LEPs saw their project numbers decrease this year as compared with last year."

The number of new jobs created in the Greater Birmingham area rose to 4,841 from 2,439 in 2013, with significant investment and jobs coming from the advanced manufacturing sector.

Jaguar Land Rover led the charge with a £1.5billion investment in its Solihull site as part of plans to develop an all-new technically advanced aluminium vehicle architecture. Vax, the household floorcare manufacturer owned by Hong Kong-based TechTronic Industries, was another leading name to show its commitment to the area by placing its new R&D facility in the heart of Birmingham's Colmore Business District.

The dramatic increase in investment to the Greater Birmingham area has been fuelled in part by growth in the digital sector. The recent influx of overseas digital investment has coincided with the BBC announcing that its new digital innovation team will be developed in Birmingham. The region will also serve as its base for running creative and digital apprenticeships.

The area's thriving financial and professional services sector also saw a boost with German investment house, Deutsche Bank, announcing its ambition to become the largest trading bank in the city.

Further major investors in the professional sector include Hogan Lovells, a growing American law firm, which chose Birmingham ahead of other regional cities as the location for its new UK legal centre. DTZ, the global real estate consultancy, also brought its European financial control centre to Greater Birmingham from Eastern Europe.

The good news coming out of Greater Birmingham reflects the national success, as the UK as a whole secured a record 67,000 new jobs from FDI projects, an impressive 17% increase on last year.

Commenting on the results, Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council said:

"Birmingham has pulled out all the stops to build its offer to investors, its international profile and connectivity. Today's statistics are proof that this is working. Our strong infrastructure and international relationships have been a magnet for FDI. We are leading the way as England's strongest region and city for inward investment.

Chairman of the GBSLEP, Andy Street, added:

"Greater Birmingham has worked hard to maintain its position as a leading global destination for foreign businesses looking to invest. The Birmingham/Solihull area is leading the way on exports, start-ups and manufacturing. FDI has been the catalyst for this success. These latest FDI figures are testament to the appeal of Greater Birmingham, and it is tremendous news that the GBSLEP is at the forefront of delivering economic growth in the regions."

Neil Rami, Chief Executive of Marketing Birmingham, said:

"These results cap a great week for investment confidence in Greater Birmingham. Whilst the city leads the way on delivering HS2 with the launch of the Birmingham Curzon Regeneration Company and construction HQ, today's news shows that we've built on our strong manufacturing heritage, and diversified into digital technology and professional services. The investment pipeline across all our target sectors is strong and our challenge will be to ensure we maximise local employment prospects."

Irregular-Shaped Vessel Sinks Finding a Home in More and More Baths Jul 31, 2014 03:30AM

Toledo, OH (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

It's understandable that the most-popular selling sinks are the ones designed in a traditional circular, square, or rectangular shape; and at a standard depth. Most people prefer a simple, practical, and functional sink. However, recently, there has been a surge in the sales of more unorthodox styles. MR Direct features a number of uniquely-shaped vessel sinks for the bath, constructed in various materials; and is a direct witness to this budding trend.

The most traditional sink material sold by MR Direct is porcelain and a few models in particular are gaining in popularity. The V240 and V360 are very wide models measuring up to 23.5 inches. The V330 extends even two inches further. But its not just the width that is unusual, its that these bowls are all very low and shallow, with inner depths as meager as 3.25 inches. And, although they take a rectangular form, there are no straight edges. All sides gently sweep down from their high-point corners.

The stone collection, likewise, offers wide and shallow choices. The 859 is carved granite but features wavy edges and arched corners which are visible from a side-view. The 861 has straight lines, but it extends 28 inches and dips to a mere 3.75 inch depth. And, the 863 granite sink comes in a one-of-kind teardrop shape.

In the MR Direct glass line, the 609 and 643 models feature a leaf shape. A wavy, flower-petal shape is available in the 611 and 612. And further, for the bamboo lover, the 892 flaunts a low profile with graceful symmetrical curves.

Perhaps the most dramatic shapes are in the MR Direct collection of bronze vessel sinks. These bowls may have proportions which are in the range of traditional sinks, but that is where any comparison ends. The 952 and 959 models are designed as replica clam shells with irregular wavy edges. The 961 and 963 mimic oyster shells. The 951 has the spiral design of a snail shell, and the 964 is perhaps the most unusual as an imitation of a sea urchin. The textures and the organic curves of these bronze offerings make them stunning choices.

Watch for more unusual shapes to hit the vessel sink market as homeowners continue to express themselves through their home décor. All MR Direct sinks, faucets and accessories can be viewed by visiting http://www.MRDirectint.com.
