BBA’s 2011 Architectural Excellence Award honors Perry Hall at Champlain College

first_imgChamplain College,Champlain College’s Roger H Perry Hall is the winner of the 2011 Architectural Excellence Award presented by the Burlington Business Association. The Architectural Excellence Award is granted to a project contributing significantly to the physical or architectural quality of Burlington. Champlain College began their $12 million renovation of the historic Roger H Perry Hall in May of 2009. This project not only called for the complete renovation of the building but for some significant additions to the original structure and the land surrounding it. With approval for the project, Champlain went full speed ahead, finishing the restoration completely by late August of 2010, just in time to welcome the incoming students. The original structure was built in 1859 by Middlebury lawyer and diplomat Edward Phelps, and is one of only 11 houses in the South Willard Street Historic District that predates the Civil War. The building has served as home to several notable historic figures during its 152-year history, including an advisor to Presidents Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore, John J. Flynn, a local financier and founder of Chittenden Bank, and a doctor. It is named for Champlain College’s former president, Roger H. Perry, who retired in 2005. The building now houses the Advising and Registration Center, Admissions, Financial Aid, and serves as a general purpose Student Welcome Center. The original structure’s open staircase, ornate historic details and ground floor rooms were preserved and used for reception and conference spaces. Roger H. Perry Hall’s former library space now houses a collection of documents; photos and historic artifacts related to the Burlington Hill Section District. The restoration also included energy-efficient climate control systems, including a geothermal pump from Roger H. Perry Hall’s deep wells. The ultimate goal was to earn certification from The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. LEED recognizes performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. With the grand opening held on September 24, 2010, Champlain College was proud to announce that Roger H. Perry Hall was able to become a LEED certified building. Champlain College maintained the west lawn open space available for public use. Visitors will enjoy an original iron sundial created by Vermont sculptor Kate Pond, at the edge of an innovative wetland garden designed to absorb storm water runoff. Engleberth Construction of Colchester was the construction manager of the project.  The project employed local workers and contractors, and helped create jobs during a difficult economic time. Final nominees for the Architectural Excellence Award included Roger H Perry Hall, the Maltex Building on Pine Street, the Courtyard Burlington Harbor Marriott on Cherry Street, and Renovations to Howard Bank Block including the Hinds Lofts, 88 King and Farrell Residences (within St. Paul, King, Main and Pine streets). The Burlington Business Association has over 200 member businesses with the majority being located in Burlington. The Association and its members work to promote the economic vitality of Burlington.last_img read more

Whose data is it anyway?

first_img 81SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Austin Wentzlaff Austin J. Wentzlaff joined OnApproach in 2013 as a Business Development Analyst and is now currently Director of Business Development. He is responsible for developing marketing strategies, driving prospects to … Web: www.onapproach.net Details By now it’s clear, data and data analytics is an extremely important growth area for credit unions. Behind it all, there is one main motive – monetizing data to its fullest extent.  There is tremendous value to be unlocked from data, and with it, tremendous money to be made by monetizing it.  However, the burning question in the credit union world is: Whose Data is it Anyway?There are a lot of “solutions” out there to help credit unions leverage data to their fullest extent. Whether it be an analysis on the loan portfolio to increase net interest margin or a next best product analysis to increase the number of products per member.  All are extremely beneficial to the credit union’s top line, bottom line, and members.  Yet, how we get to these analytic outputs is extremely crucial.There are several different options with pros and cons to each. Instead of going into detail of each path a credit union could take, the focus should be on what’s important – the data.  It is easy to find a company that has a “solution” and wants “help” analyze your data but the fundamental question to ask is: “Do they want to help me (my credit union), or do they just want my data?”.Making this distinction is an important first step in the data analytics journey.  The credit union should be focused on monetizing their own data and not giving that data away to someone else to monetize it for themselves and their own benefit.  The fact of the matter is everyone wants your data.  What company wouldn’t?  It’s some of the most valuable data out there – where your members shop, how much they spend, what types of vehicles they have, or what their credit scores are, etc.Instead of giving away the value of its data, a credit union must figure out a means to monetize that data for itself.  The data in the credit union industry should STAY in the credit union industry.  Though establishing the means (mainly infrastructure and resources) to do this is no easy task. It’s out of the reach for most credit unions, but there are CUSOs that allow credit unions to do so.The question of “Whose Data is it Anyway” has a simply answer:  the data should be owned by credit unions and the credit union industry.  Instead of giving valuable data away, credit unions need to come together in the form of a CUSO to help manage, store, analyze, and most importantly, monetize their data together.  No third party, non-credit union, or non-CUSO should own the credit union data.  Data is the asset of the future and the industry needs to band together to ensure this valuable asset stays within the industry and is not taken by some company with ulterior motives.The simple answer to “Whose data is it anyway” is:  It’s yours.  Make sure partners understand that the data and analytics outputs belong to your credit union, your members, and the credit union industry in general; not someone else for their own benefit.last_img read more

Roberson plays season-high 14 minutes, shows noticeable improvement

first_imgTyler Roberson collected a rebound midway through the first half and paused in the paint. The rest of his Syracuse teammates abandoned him and ran upcourt which left him alone in an unfamiliar situation.“Dribble!” yelled Michael Gbinije.He didn’t. Instead Tyler Ennis ran back and Roberson hit him with an outlet pass.The freshman forward may not be totally comfortable yet, but he made noticeable strides in No. 2 Syracuse’s (13-0) 70-48 win over Eastern Michigan (7-5) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday. Roberson tied his career high with 14 minutes and finished with six points, five rebounds and an assist.With DaJuan Coleman out with a left leg contusion, Roberson could see an increase in minutes as the third forward in the rotation, and proved Tuesday that he could be a viable stopgap.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Tonight he was good,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He got some rebounds, he made a couple of positive moves and a real good pass. A lot of positive things tonight.”Roberson played four minutes in SU’s 78-62 win over then-No. 8 Villanova on Saturday, and Boeheim said that he didn’t maximize his opportunities with Coleman hurt and Rakeem Christmas in foul trouble. The head coach said that Roberson gave up two easy layups to the Wildcats, didn’t rebound well and “was lost.”But Roberson looked comfortable against the Eagles. He was alert on the wing of Syracuse’s zone and effective in the high post on offense. He even threw a wrap-around pass to Christmas that got Boeheim to hop in the air before giving the freshman a casual point.“It’s just good to get out there,” Roberson said. “I’m starting to feel more and more comfortable.”Roberson still looked hesitant to shoot when he caught the ball in space. He attempted one jump shot in the first half that hit the back rim but said that “the jumper’s there, just need to keep shooting.”With 3:18 left, fellow freshmen Ron Patterson and B.J. Johnson joined Roberson on the court. After a hectic out-of-bounds save by Patterson led to a Johnson 3, Patterson set up Roberson with a floater in the paint.All three freshman reserves got their names in the box score Tuesday, and Roberson led the way with his most assuring performance of the season.“I was proud of them today,” SU forward C.J. Fair said of the freshmen. “Tyler was confident and that was good for us.” Comments Published on December 31, 2013 at 9:09 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
