Architecture is both the process and product of planning, designing and construction. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural and political symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements. (Sourced from Wikipedia).
It is believed that in the UK the average new three bedroomed home is 8% smaller than the basic recommended minimum size, leaving thousands of people across the country short-changed. This squeeze on size is depriving thousands of families the space needed for children to do homework, adults to work from home, guests to stay and for members of the household to relax together. The findings feature in Case for Space, new research revealed today by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). (Sourced from architecture.com)

What is aM&T?
aM&T stands for Automatic Monitoring and Targeting – the key starting point to an efficient energy management solution. Simply put, it is the automatic collection of meter data so that you can identify areas of energy usage and wastage in order to reduce consumption. According to the Carbon Trust, effective aM&T can save you at least 5% on your energy bills. RUMM clients have on average received at least 14% savings following the installation of a RUMM aM&T system.
How does aM&T work?
An aM&T system with RUMM is a highly effective three stage process.
First the necessary smart meters are installed across your site in order to measure energy consumption. The half hourly meter data is then collected using a RUMM Pulse unit and the data analysed using RUMM’s Internet Based Analytical Software Suite (IBASS). It is this analysis that identifies the areas where energy can be saved.
I already have aM&T – can RUMM still help me?
RUMM’s Pulse unit allows data collection from any meter on any frequency in any location meaning if you have an existing aM&T system, it can be easily integrated into a RUMM Energy Management Services solution. RUMM can also install any additional smart meters you may need.
What are the benefits of aM&T?
RUMM clients have on average received at least 14% savings following the installation of a RUMM aM&T system, and according to the Carbon Trust, anyone who installs effective aM&T can expect at least 5% savings on their energy bills.
aM&T ensures the integration of real time data in order to give you, the customer, the power to reduce energy costs, achieve carbon reduction targets, increase profits and eliminate waste.
An aM&T system is also now essential for most businesses, as it provides you with the necessary data needed to comply with carbon reduction legislation such as CRC EES, CCA and EU ETS.
4 reasons to commission a UK furniture craftsman to create eco furniture for your eco home
These days with eco consciousness rising, there’s a wide variety of eco furniture to choose from. But sometimes it can still be difficult to find a specific piece you’re looking for. Maybe you need a dining table to be a specific size, or a design that matches the existing furnishings in your eco home. Or maybe you have an eco furniture design in your head you’d like to make into a reality.
In these instances you should consider commissioning a UK furniture craftsman to create a piece of eco furniture for you. They’ll sit down with you, listen to what you’re looking for and then fashion your idea into an exceptional and personal piece.
Inevitably, handcrafted eco furniture will be more expensive than something you’d buy off the shelf from a mass market retailer. But there are many reasons why you should consider commissioning a piece to add a special feature to your eco home:
1. Unique – Unlike mass produced furniture, a piece of eco furniture you’ve commissioned will be a one of a kind. This will make it an eye catching feature in your eco home and a talking point with guests.
2. Long lasting – In this consumerist culture we live in, a lot of mass produced furniture is only expected to last 5-10 years. Not only is this a waste of money but also a waste of the resources and materials used to build it. Specially built eco furniture, on the other hand, is built with high quality, durable materials and expert craftsmanship to last a lifetime.
3. An antique or heirloom for the future – UK furniture craftsmen dedicate their lives to perfecting their craft and building their reputation. This means a piece you buy now could see its value increase over time, as pieces by certain craftsmen become sought after.
4. Made from locally sourced eco materials – Whether weaving textiles, forging metal or carving wood, you’ll find that most UK furniture craftsman are eco conscious about the materials they use. Many only use wood they’ve harvested themselves or sourced from FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified forests that are sustainably managed. You’ll also find many upholsterers use eco textiles and traditional hand weaving techniques to create eco cushions and eco chairs.
So when you consider all of the above, in our throw away culture where most things are mass produced, eco furniture that’s been made by a UK furniture craftsman to your design can offer a valuable and unique touch to your eco home.

When cleaning or getting your carpet cleaned, its very important that you remove the leftover detergent and dry the carpet very well. This will not only stop the carpets from smelling but increase the life of your carpets.
Things to do :-
- Rinse the carpet after cleaning
- If there is a section on the carpet with heavy traffic marks, make sure you go over those sections more
- Next dry stroke the carpet. This is not rising as its sucking more moisture out of the carpets and at the same time cleaning them even more.
- By doing these steps, you will dry the carpets faster. About 3 -4 hours
If you need any carpet cleaning in London contact us.
