Extreme Innovation: New B.I.G. Bi-level, Extreme Weather Security Booths Redefine Border Security

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2011

Working with experts in the security field, including the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Jacob Engineering, and Parsons Engineering, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc.(http://www.bigbooth.com) recently manufactured and delivered a series of bi-level, extreme weather booths to U.S. Canadian border check points. Prior to this recent delivery, similar booths have been delivered to the U.S. Mexican border.

This booth is situated inside a large enclosure where trucks and other vehicles can be inspected thoroughly despite grueling weather. The bi-level booth is unique: it facilitates ground level, visual inspection of vehicles, and gives guards access to upper portions of commercial trucks and containers via an interior stairway leading to an elevated section. Thus, security personnel have a truly a ?top-down? perspective ? a distinct advantage.

When it comes to border security, guard booths and vehicle inspection strategies are a first line of defense. Security personnel, including agents from DHS and CBP, need facilities that allow them to function effectively in harsh climatic conditions, while giving them a physical advantage over potential threats. These security structures and control centers must be fabricated from the best materials, and incorporate correctly-sized HVAC systems for adequate climate management. These booths must be configuration-friendly as they must house monitors, duress buttons, communication and surveillance equipment.

The B.I.G. bi-level units are fully-fabricated and ready to install, they have a high level of ballistics resistance, high-output roof-mounted HVAC systems, backup heat, and heated floor mats for severe winter weather. They also contain an extensive electrical infrastructure. The conduits, junction boxes, and other components support a flexible array of alarm, camera and communication equipment. Pre-wiring makes installation a snap. Punishing environmental conditions are no match for these innovative, bi-level booths.

B.I.G. Enterprises is pleased to add the bi-level, extreme weather booth to its fabrication arsenal. B.I.G. guard shelters meet the exacting demands of regulatory agencies, security directors, and facilities managers.

About B.I.G. Enterprises:

Since 1963, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. of California has engineered and manufactured a comprehensive line of high quality, high-end, prefabricated security and revenue control booths. Their state-of-the-art selection of pre-assembled buildings include guardhouses, cashier booths, portable shelters, and a variety of custom-made kiosks.

Extreme Makeover Roofing Company Brings Community Spirit to Crookston

Crookston, MN (PRWEB) August 26, 2009

Stio Roofing & Construction (http://www.stioroofingandconstruction.com) has been active in the Crookston, Minnesota area, helping with roof repair and replacement after the severe storms and resulting damage the community suffered on July 23 of this year.

Many homeowners need to have their roofs inspected due to the severity of the storms passing through the area, to assess damage that is not always easily seen. The hail, ranging from marble-sized to larger than golf ball-sized, was accompanied by severe winds and heavy rains in the July storm.

Stio Roofing & Construction has a history of community involvement. In August 2007, Stio was selected and volunteered its services on the Extreme Makeover Home Edition project in Minnetonka, MN. An incredible 5,600 square foot, 7-bedroom, 5-bath new home was built for the Swenson-Lee family there in just one week. This project required tremendous coordination and cooperation, and resulted in a great new home for a very deserving family.

Stio is bringing this same care and dedication to the Crookston area, working closely with local vendors including Northern Lumber Company and the Crookston Building Center and assisting homeowners with their insurance claims to ensure they’re treated fairly.

While insurance providers like State Farm have set up temporary offices in the city, homeowners can benefit from the expertise of a contractor who has experience in working with the insurance companies. Stio Roofing & Construction is helping Crookston homeowners by performing free, thorough inspections of the homeowner’s roof. Then, Stio is working alongside the homeowner or directly with their insurance company to negotiate the claim.

Stio Roofing & Construction has built its stellar reputation in the industry by its overall excellence and customer satisfaction. Stio’s customers give the company consistently high marks in quality, reliability, cost, and overall satisfaction. The company uses the finest materials and provides the highest level of service and workmanship to ensure each roof will protect and add to the value of that home for years to come. Stio provides a written guarantee for the work they perform.

About Stio Roofing and Construction: Stio Roofing & Construction is a Roofing & Siding Insurance Claims Expert, assisting homeowners and communities with all types of roofing, siding, windows, chimney tuck pointing and rebuilding, gutters, downspouts, and custom decks. Stio is a second-generation, family-owned and operated company with more than 25 years of industry experience.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Helps a Long Island Family

Yaphank, NY (PRWEB) August 4, 2010

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is an award-winning reality television series that changes the lives of deserving families in need. BidForMaterials.com is proud to be apart of this rewarding process, which provides home renovations across the nation for families that have faced some sort of significant hardship.

The Lutz family was surprised at the Yankees versus Mets game on June 20th where it was announced that they would be featured on Extreme Makeover Home Edition. During this first build of the upcoming season, which took place in East Setauket, New York, we saw an unbelievable amount of altruism from construction companies across Long Island that led to a successful completion of a new home.

Alure Home Improvements was selected an 8th time as the contractor in charge of the build. Prior to the build, BidForMaterials.com received a material list from Alure with materials that were in need through donation. The registered suppliers in the BidForMaterials.com network were notified of the opportunity to help a family in need. As a registered supplier you have access to the material lists, which included everything from HVAC supplies to roof supplies.

The amount of companies that volunteered was truly inspiring. As a result, BidForMaterials.com acquired donations in the areas of sanitary systems, aggregates, plumbing, granite slabs, porcelain tiles, electric, lumber and landscape lighting for the Lutz family’s new home.

With the building of the house finished and the Lutz family moved in, Extreme Makeover moved on to Baltimore, Maryland, with construction of the local Boys Hope Girls Hope Chapter. BidForMaterials.com (http://www.bidformaterials.com) continued with its work in Baltimore, seeking volunteers and materials, and has moved onto the next location in Houston, Texas. This is truly a life-changing experience, not only for the recipients but for volunteers as well. Please visit BidForMaterials.com if you are interested in joining the effort.

Holbrook, NY (PRWEB) December 16, 2010

Four Seasons Sunrooms, North America’s premier sunroom, conservatory and window manufacturer, was a key contributor to an upcoming episode on the top-rated reality television series “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC-TV. The episode will be broadcast on Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET

Four Seasons donated its popular Elegant Living Sun and Stars sunroom and two floor-to-ceiling glass walls for the project to help a deserving family.

Heroes, community leaders, and a plethora of inspirational families are truly the heart and soul of the show. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition truly knows the meaning of the saying, “Home is where the heart is”.

In this episode, Extreme Makeover moved the existing home and built an entirely new house for Bill, Adair, Peighton and Garrett Grommesh. Bill and Adair’s son Garrett suffers from spin bifida and is confined to a wheelchair. The sunroom Four Seasons Sunrooms donated encloses a swimming pool Garrett can use for year-round year-round physical therapy.

“We are extremely grateful for Four Season’s willingness to contribute to such a wonderful community project. It is because of the generosity from businesses like Four Seasons that ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ is able to continue helping deserving individuals,” Diane Korman, Senior Producer, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” said.

“Four Seasons is honored to provide one of its world-class sunrooms for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, James Ruppel, of the sunroom and window manufacturer said. “It was our honor and pleasure to be able to help this deserving family and bring some light into their lives. Shows like this help illustrate what hundreds of thousands of homeowners around the world experience every day: extraordinary year-round outdoor living, indoors, in climate-controlled comfort, 365 days a year.”

The sunroom provided for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is only one of the more than 30 different models in the company’s most comprehensive line of Patio Rooms, Sunrooms and Conservatories. The company offers thousands of different configurations of year-round glass room additions in framing materials as diverse as aluminum, vinyl and natural wood.

Four Seasons Sunrooms are year-round glass room additions largely because of their exclusive, proprietary sunroom glass: ConservaGlass Select ™ with Stay-Clean Technology. “We recognized long ago that it’s the performance of the glass that most impacts the owner’s sunroom satisfaction,” Ruppel said. “The founders of the company set out to ensure that they could deliver a glass room addition that could be heated and cooled just like any other room in a home. Four Seasons is justifiably proud of the fact that we have been setting the standard for year-round glass room additions for nearly 40 years.”

ConservaGlass Select ™ helps keep Four Seasons’ room additions warmer in winter and cooler in summer, and its advanced construction techniques promise a lifetime of outstanding performance and low maintenance.

Energy Efficiency:Outstanding R-Value

For extreme applications, ConservaGlass Select™ has R-Values as high as 7.7 in triple-glazed units and are 100% higher than the competition’s standard double-glazed glass, keeping sunrooms warmer in winter.

Relative Heat Gain: ConservaGlass Select ™ Blocks 85% of the Sun’s Solar Heat!

ConservaGlass Select’s™ Relative Heat Gain as low as 29 on some of its triple-glazed glass ensures a sunroom can be effectively cooled in all four seasons. Even its double-glazed roof glass has an outstanding Relative Heat Gain of only 39.

Maintenance: Windows that Virtually Clean Themselves

The exterior coatings on ConservaGlass Select™ are not magic, but they’re close to it! Using a patented coating process, invisible, durable and permanent coatings of both silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide are applied to the outside of the glass, permanently keeping the glass cleaner longer.

Transferable Lifetime Limited Warranty: The Best in the Industry

Four Seasons Sunrooms’ ConservaGlass Select™ is warranted to continue to perform well for a lifetime. ConservaGlass Select™ is covered against any manufacturer’s defect for the lifetime of the Four Seasons Sunroom. This warranty covers not only the original purchaser, but is transferable to future homeowners, ensuring Four Seasons Sunrooms maintain their value for a lifetime.

“The outstanding characteristics of ConservaGlass Select, ensure that Four Seasons Sunrooms can be used in any room application imaginable,” Ruppel said. “From pool enclosures like this one on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, to family rooms, dining rooms, kitchen additions, bedrooms, home gyms and home offices – the applications for a Four Seasons Sunroom are limited only by your imagination”.

Four Seasons manufactures and ships the premier year-round glass room additions, sunrooms, conservatories and patio enclosures; replacement windows and doors; patio covers and carports; screen and porch enclosures; wood and aluminum pergolas; and retractable awnings to over 300 independently owned and operated franchises, dealers and company owned and operated locations worldwide.

Renaissance Orlando Hotel-Airport Completes Multi-Million Dollar Extreme Makeover Combining Contemporary Elegance with World Flair

Orlando, Fla. (Vocus) January 29, 2008

Just minutes away from Florida’s busiest airport, an oasis has emerged for sophisticated corporate travelers who demand the sumptuous luxury of a resort, but don’t want to sacrifice the modern conveniences of a business hotel. The Renaissance Orlando Hotel-Airport (http://www.RenaissanceOrlandoAP.com), having recently completed a multi-million dollar top-to-bottom renovation, provides both – fusing lavish yet sleek furnishings with the newest technologies, allowing guests to escape when they need to, but connect when they have to.

Renovations to the nine-story, 297-room property have already been recognized with Marriott International’s 2007 “Best Renovation of a Renaissance Hotel” and are highlighted by completely redesigned common areas, meeting space and accommodations. These spaces combine contemporary elegance and priceless works of art brushed with bold colors and the modern conveniences business travelers demand to create a stylish and sophisticated ambiance.

In addition to a complete overhaul, the hotel’s guest rooms have been technologically upgraded, becoming the first in Orlando to feature Marriott’s “Plug-In Room” with the resourceful “Plug-in Panel” allowing simultaneous connectivity to devices such as laptops, iPods
