Alumni House (Mayhew, Vaughn & Halprin) Historic Structure Report, William Riggs, Frederic Knapp, Steve Finacom, Chris Verplanck

William W. Riggs

Designed by architect Clarence W. Mayhew, with the landscape design by H. Leland Vaughn and Lawrence Halprin, Alumni House was constructed in 1953-54 on the south bank of Strawberry Creek, immediately west of the site of the proposed California Student Center. Described as a “home on the campus,” Alumni House was designed for the use of the California Alumni Association (CAA) as a gathering place for returning University of California alumni, as well as an office building for employees of the CAA. This HSR documents the history, existing conditions, and character defining features of this building and its landscaping, as ...


Whose Beach Is It Anyway?, Nigel Cartlidge 2011 Bond University

Whose Beach Is It Anyway?, Nigel Cartlidge

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

The public right to access the beaches in many places is frustrated by those who have no interest in sharing the benefits of their beach with others. Beach precincts around the world are the setting for a protracted conflict between public and private control of access to the natural environment of the beach. This conflict sees private individuals and corporate interests that own foreshore properties seeking to extend that ownership to deny or restrict access to the beach. Foreshore property owners have, in many places, used various urban design and development devices to effectively control the conditions for beach access ...


Transit Mode And Route Decisions Enabling Transit Oriented Development, David Mepham 2011 Bond University

Transit Mode And Route Decisions Enabling Transit Oriented Development, David Mepham

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

The contemporary approach to realising integrated land use and transit oriented development has focussed on the role of the land use planner and urban designer but the key enabling activities for integrated land use and transit oriented development can be seen as being realised in the transit planning process. The key enabling factors of interest here are the mode and system characteristics and the route and station locations.

This paper is focussed on the transit mode and system characteristics and their impact on integrated land use and transit oriented development outcomes. Flexibility versus permanency, transit corridor permeability versus segregation, open ...


Food In My Back Yard (Fimby): Implementing Urban Agriculture Into Australian Suburbs, Ned Wales, Nicole Webb 2011 Bond University

Food In My Back Yard (Fimby): Implementing Urban Agriculture Into Australian Suburbs, Ned Wales, Nicole Webb

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

The recent climatic events, economic uncertainty and peak oil are leading to greater levels of awareness of our vulnerability for food supply and security. During the summer of 2010/11 much of the east coast of Australia was inundated with record rainfall and proceeding flooding, which impacted on food delivery from regional production areas to urban markets. Consequently many of our major food outlets in suburban neighbourhoods ran critically low in supply and price increases were significant. These events have lead to a wider dialog on where does our food come from and how can we ensure food supply as ...


A Governance Framework For Eco-Centric Behaviour In Communities, Linda Too, Bhishna Bajracharya 2011 Bond University

A Governance Framework For Eco-Centric Behaviour In Communities, Linda Too, Bhishna Bajracharya

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Climate change and its impacts have taken centre-stage in the media as well as academic research in recent years. This has led to better awareness of the sustainability issue among the general public. However, knowledge about sustainability is not necessarily matched by actual sustainable practices. The community plays an important role to effect lasting changes towards a more eco-centric behaviour. While various disciples such as marketing, psychology and urban design have undertaken research on this topic, these have often been done in isolation. The purpose of this paper is to draw together the knowledge from these well-established disciplines and develop ...


Sensemaking Of Rework Causation In Offshore Structures: People, Organization And Project, Peter E. D. Love, Jim Smith, Sangwon Han 2011 Curtin University of Technology

Sensemaking Of Rework Causation In Offshore Structures: People, Organization And Project, Peter E. D. Love, Jim Smith, Sangwon Han

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Cost and schedule overruns are norm in offshore hydrocarbon projects. With increasingly complex commercial and contracting arrangements, technical challenges, changing local economic and regulatory conditions and a shift toward project‘s being undertaken in peak oil frontier regions, the risks of overruns increase. A major factor contributing to such overruns is rework. Twenty three indepth interviews with leading oil and gas industry practitioners were undertaken to acquire knowledge of their experiences of rework causation in offshore projects. Analysis of the dialogue and narratives obtained enabled a nomenclature for rework causal factors to be classified as People, Organization and Project for ...


Screening And Selecting Project Managers For The Middle East, Sabina Cerimagic, Jim Smith 2011 Bond University

Screening And Selecting Project Managers For The Middle East, Sabina Cerimagic, Jim Smith

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Cross-cultural training is of prime importance if the expatriates are to adjust speedily to the new environment and do well in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Selecting the right people for the overseas job is important as the selected individuals need to have a desire and readiness to learn. Some researchers in this field referred to this as the "learning orientation" where people with high learning orientations like challenges and are ready to learn and people with low learning orientations like to play it safe and do not like challenges. The way the "right" people can be chosen for the ...


Cross-Cultural Training: The Importance Of Investing In People, Sabina Cerimagic, Jim Smith 2011 Bond University

Cross-Cultural Training: The Importance Of Investing In People, Sabina Cerimagic, Jim Smith

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Major international companies have established themselves in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) market by setting up their regional headquarters in Dubai. These international companies want to be in a growing market in a country where their companies are recognised and affiliated with a positive image. In addition, many companies have moved to the UAE for financial reasons as well. The UAE is an expanding regional market with the potential for future growth. However, there are cultural differences between Australia (and western countries generally) and the UAE (Middle Eastern). It is easy to have genuine and honest misunderstandings and, hence, it ...

Systemic Rework Risk Classification For Offshore Projects, Peter Love, Jim Smith, Sangwon Han 2011 Curtin University

Systemic Rework Risk Classification For Offshore Projects, Peter Love, Jim Smith, Sangwon Han

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Rework arises due to errors and omissions, and significantly contributes to project cost and schedule overruns in offshore projects. To acquire an understanding of the causal nature of rework in offshore projects, twenty three in-depth interviews with leading oil and gas industry practitioners were undertaken. The dialogue and narratives obtained from the interviews enabled the underlying dynamics of rework to be determined. A risk classification matrix is developed that can be utilized as a frame of reference to mitigate future rework. If rework risks are not given due consideration then there is the potential for latent conditions to become embedded ...
