The Valve – Jaga's very own blog

  It’s high time for innovation. Innovation to prevent the end of our planet as we know it. Our thirst for fossil fuels is becoming difficult for the Earth to sustain, so we need to become greener in our energy consumption.   Jaga-CO2-Temperatures Where there is scope for change, it has to happen. Inefficient design and heating of our buildings is contributing significantly to the CO2; emissions that result in global warming. Global warming, as a term, has been used so heavily without significant action that its resonance has dwindled. We need to reinforce its significance in a sector that has the potential to make a difference.   A warmer world might seem like...  Read More

  The discovery of fire is one of the defining moments in the history of mankind. A catalyst that sparked thousands of years of evolution. Everything the human race has achieved thus far stems back to that moment.   And yet, for all the good, it has become a more destructive force than the early Homo erectus could ever have imagined.   In the past few centuries, it has been used as a tool for burning the planet’s natural resources to fuel our development at a relentless rate. It’s a mark of our ambition and the success we can achieve as a species, but the planet is a privilege that we have...  Read More

In a previous blog from The Valve, we discussed the argument of whether Building Information Modelling (BIM) restricts architects’ creative opportunities – we believe the opposite is true.    For architects, embracing BIM will open unexplored design opportunities. How this aesthetic design path will evolve will become clearer with time. One thing we do know is that using BIM early in the planning process will undoubtedly lead to greater efficiency in the building construction and operation. This helps companies save on long-term costs and open doors to future revenue opportunities.   In the Government Construction Strategy 2011, the target was for savings of 15% to 20% on construction budgets by the end of this...  Read More

Jaga is delighted to be backing an initiative by H & V News magazine called ‘Time for Change’. The first issue on its agenda is to change the situation relating to retention funds within construction contracts – a problem affecting contractors and small businesses throughout the building services and construction sectors.   In any line of work, if you do a good job you expect to be paid the agreed amount for your efforts. Too often, businesses are withholding or delaying payments to contracting companies for their work, quite simply because there is nothing to stop them doing so.   It is hugely damaging to the image of the industry, and is...  Read More
