San Diego Playground Equipment Company, Pacific Play Systems, Acquires New Carlsbad Facility, Increasing Southern Cal Playground Installation Capacity

(PRWEB) May 23, 2012

Pacific Play Systems, leading supplier of commercial playground equipment in southern California, acquired and relocated its headquarters to 3226 Grey Hawk Court, Carlsbad, CA 92010. Prior to the recent move, the company leased a smaller facility at 3142 Tiger Run Court, Carlsbad, CA 92010. Pacific Play Systems has more than tripled its floor area, which includes office and warehouse space. The new facility will improve the effective delivery of customer service throughout southern California.

Company President, Ali Bemanian explains that the new larger warehouse can store several dozen commercial playgrounds. The storage facility gives Pacific Play Systems a competitive advantage, making it possible to handle the bulky goods of playground equipment for large projects, while serving multiple customers. Bemanian adds that the company is experienced with large projects, having completed several multi-million dollar projects, which is unusual in the commercial playground equipment market. Bemanian reports that the seasonal strategy for timing the move was critical as Pacific Play Systems is scheduled to have a busy summer with commercial playground equipment projects throughout southern California, in: San Diego, Orange, Riverside, Imperial, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. These projects are either already in progress or in the planning stages.

Aside from the new facility upgrade, Pacific Play Systems has added two new playground equipment designers: one with a Bachelors Degree in Architecture and the other with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Arts. Bemanian, the company President has an educational background in architecture with expertise in manufacturing, construction, and commercial playground equipment design. With such extensive knowledge of the business market, Bemanian works closely with the company staff to create outstanding designs for playground equipment projects. Pacific Play Systems has won several key commercial playground equipment projects this year, including a prestigious playground project at US MCB, Camp Pendleton, CA. Pacific Play Systems also earned a high score of 98.2% in a recent design build competition for a playground equipment renovation project at a major park for the City of San Diego; this is presently in the planning stage.

In addition to working closely with the design staff at Pacific Play Systems, Bemanian creates outstanding designs by closely collaborating with designers and engineers at Playcraft, a west coast leading manufacturer of commercial playground equipment. Pacific Play Systems and Playcraft have a strategic geographic business relationship that benefits their customers.

Beautiful New Metal Worship Facility Offers Inspiration for Community

Columbus, Miss. (PRWEB) September 18, 2012

Who thought inspiration could come in the form of an engineered steel building? Kenneth Joyner did. When the CEO of J&J Contractors was hired to finish a long-range growth plan for NorthPark Church in Meridian, Miss., he turned to Ceco Building Systems. The end product was a stunning worship facility that not only serves the congregation but has already struck a chord with visitors.

J&J Contractors in nearby Collinsville, Miss., constructed the churchs original facility. For this latest project, designed to accommodate the churchs growing congregation and multiple ministries, Joyner brought in Ceco because metal was the most economical choice for this type structure.

Founded in 1956, the non-denominational Christian evangelical church has over 400 members. This second 19,000 square foot addition is the completion of a 15-year plan which included the relocation of the church in 1999 to the northeast part of the city. We started in June 2010, commented Joyner. The congregation had their first service in the new sanctuary on June 22 of this year.

Just as J&J has worked closely with NorthPark Church for well over a decade through two major construction projects, J&J worked closely with Ceco to meet the needs of their customer. Ceco Building Systems has been serving the needs of its customers and their clients for 65 years, said Ceco President Roger Burlingame. At Ceco, we focus on four vital factors of success: customer relationships, superior product quality, excellent service and competitive pricing. Customers look to Ceco when they are thinking about their construction projects.

The work of J&J and Ceco has made our church a spiritual center for our community, commented Senior Pastor Earl Wheatley Jr. The physical statement of our new structure reaches out to people all hours of the day and night.

Burlingame said, Ceco Building Systems frequently works with our Ceco Builders and church customers to meet their specific needs. Each is different, and Ceco is up to the challenge of helping design and erect churches from small chapels to the most complex and unique designs. It was a privilege to work with J&J Contractors and NorthPark Church.

Using over 164 tons of steel, J&J Contractors, who designed the project and served as metal erector, constructed the 19,000 square-foot sanctuary and satellite buildings using Cecos architectural standing seam roofing material. The roof color is Ceco Classic Green in a long-life paint.

The new facility consists of a sanctuary, eight classrooms, two nurseries, a cry room, four restrooms, a storage area, a chapel, and a choir practice room and music room. These new buildings were connected to the existing 22,000 square feet of buildings. During construction, the congregation held services in the multipurpose building.

Ceco Building Systems District Sales Manager Roger Shivers explained the intricacy of the sanctuary, designed with fan-type seating. This was a very complex project. It involved a high roof, a low roof and buildings extending off the sanctuary. Shivers quipped, There is not one square corner in the building. The sanctuary roof height is 52 feet at the peak. One of the three large stained glass windows stands a lofty 30-feet high.

A unique and somewhat difficult-to-construct aspect of this metal building system project was the construction of three large crosses on top of the sanctuary. The difficulty was in the structural considerations because of the particular area where the crosses were located.

Another unique aspect of the new NorthPark Church is the main entrance, according to Shivers. Its not a traditional front entrance. Its a drive-through, and its built recessed into the connector between the old and new entrances.

Looking back, though, Shivers commented on the end result. Even with the challenging construction, the custom metal buildings erected wonderfully. I credit Cecos engineering and detailing staff for their attention to detail and their relevant experience with worship building design.

Rev. Wheatley praised the project team. J&Js design is striking, he commented, and Cecos ability to provide the materials needed has been a dream come true for our congregation. Our entire community is impressed with the new worship center addition to our facility. The sanctuary, new nurseries, additional classrooms, music ministry suite and chapel have come together beautifully to help us reach more people in our community.

Wheatley added that the building is already serving as an inspirational area. We recently hosted a medical seminar, he said. One participant, from another part of the state, wrote us, thanking us for opening our facility for training. He wrote, The day turned out to be more than a learning event for me. I had the chance to enter the new part of your building, and it was a spiritual event for me. The beauty of your sanctuary and the solitude of the chapel ministered to me in a powerful way. If I lived closer I would be worshiping with you soon. Cecos work with us has had more than material benefits our new structure is ministering spiritually as well!

The Patriot Group Provides Senior Debt Facility for Investment Evolutions Amazing Loans Australian Subsidiary

Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Patriot really stepped up on this transaction, Benson said. This facility will invigorate the existing very profitable lending platform in Australia that has solid loan performance history. However, both Patriot and Investment Evolution required patience with cross-border legal systems, and added due diligence for a transaction half way around the globe. In the end, both firms can make significant income by helping the Australian consumer gain access to small loans done in a manner that is in full compliance with a very highly-regulated lending environment.

Richard Benson at Specialty Finance Group was highly skilled, flexible and patient in sourcing a leading USA group to fund our Australian operations in the middle of the worst financing conditions since the great depression, said Paul Mathieson, CEO and Founder of Investment Evolution Global Corporation. We are excited to be backed by the specialist expert team at Patriot Group. Obtaining the Patriot debt facility, funded from a firm located in the global hub of receivable based funding (Connecticut, USA), is a strong endorsement of the IEGC business model and management team.
