Project X22: A New FPS Game with a Twist - 3 Players, 10 Minutes, and a Lot of Action
Text description provided by the architects. Project X22 is an amalgamation of all the experimental alternative design techniques like filler slabs, lime plaster, handmade cement tiles, courtyards, skylights, vertical gardens, various brick bonding such as rat trap bond, dogtooth bond, basket weave bond, stack bond, brick jail, rain collector, etc. This project is for a family of seven members of three generations which is a collective reflection of both these users and the architect's idea of having a house that has hand-crafted age-old techniques, a contemporary look and feel with traditional and locally available materials. Each and every part of this project like the doors, Washbasins, Rain drains, Windowsills etc. has a customized design based on the user habits and behaviors.
This entire project, which has sustainability at its center, aspires to make a statement that is bold enough to include necessary passive energy-saving measures and the luxury of constructing classical ways in a modern style that has a timeless character.
ECI is a two stage procurement process which can take various forms. The first stage involves the development of scope and design leading to the agreement of price and key project dates. The project is then built and delivered during the second stage.
X22 was updated in October 2020 to introduce greater flexibility in the first stage and to provide a more structured process for proceeding to the second stage. One of the main issues with X22, prior to the update, was that completion dates and other key dates originally specified in the contract could only be modified because of a compensation event. This was not ideal, as changes to these dates may become desirable or necessary as a project evolves during the ECI stage. Under the updated X22, the employer can review and agree or reject any changes to key dates proposed by the ECI contractor.
X22 allows an employer to benefit from the specialist planning, programming and procurement skills of contractors including during design development and to identify buildability issues before they manifest down the road in cost claims, delays and disputes. The NEC4 ECI model also allows for the collaborative adoption of technology early in a project, such as the joint development of BIM or similar design tools or the deployment of pre-fabricated modular construction methods. However, for the benefits to be realised, ECI requires rigorous management and adherence to the process. Employers and their project management teams need to engage with contractors pro-actively during the ECI stage to get the most out of the process. Nonetheless given the potential benefits, procuring employers in Asia and elsewhere would do well to consider whether NEC4 approach to ECI may be a good fit for their project.
In great architecture we know details matter, and we apply this belief to the entire customer experience. With focus on the highest color quality, design esthetic, made-to-order craftsmanship, project follow-through, detailed labeling, and installation simplification, we are as invested in the result as the customers we work with.

One criticism of ECI is that the supply chain below the main contractor is not contributing efficiently towards ECI due to commercial behaviours of main contractors and clients. In a 2019 University of Cambridge study2, it was found that supply chain perceptions of ECI were different from the other parties involved in project and that the supply chain was isolated from the collaborative ideals and commercial benefits of ECI which were touted by main contractors and clients. This led to a lack of collaboration and a reversion to the more traditional adversarial relationships.
ESI extends the principle of ECI by formally engaging the main contractor, sub-contractors, and supply chain in the pre-construction phase to input into design, price, programme, and risk management for the project. The intention being to unlock greater value in projects, as well as flowing down key project objectives to the supply chain. For example, if a project had particular sustainability or carbon reduction objectives, these could be achieved through supply chain input and innovation.
In Stage One, the Contractor is paid its Defined Cost on a cost reimbursable basis, but the contractor must also prepare a detailed projection forecast of that cost at the intervals in the contract data. Such forecasts are submitted to the Project Manager for acceptance. The cost of any work that is not included in the accepted forecast is treated as a Disallowed Cost.
If Option X22 is to be used with ESI, then the parties may wish to consider expanding the existing provisions in relation to the roles of the key persons. Most of the studies on ECI and ESI show a clear benefit in having the same key persons from the Contractor and its supply chain involved with the project during the ECI period. Having key persons involved is important for collaboration, consistency, project knowledge and also for the relationship between the parties. Option X22 includes an obligation for the Contractor to maintain key persons in place during Stage One and such persons cannot leave the project without an instruction from the Project Manager or if they are unable to continue to act. This obligation could be extended to key members of the supply chain involved in the project to ensure that continuity of personnel.
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 11, 2021) -Kodiak Copper Corp. (TSXV: KDK) (the "Company" or "Kodiak") provides an update on its fully funded drill program at its 100% owned MPD copper-gold porphyry project ("MPD") in Southern British Columbia.
The stomach receives sympathetic projections from the celiac ganglion. To determine what kinds of neurons in the celiac ganglion project to the cardia or the pylorus of the stomach, we injected the retrograde tracer Fluoro-Gold into the cardia and the retrograde tracer cholera toxin subunit b into the pylorus of the same animal. A few neurons (about 10%) innervating the cardia sent collateral projections to the pylorus. Ultrastructural observations revealed that the celiac ganglion contained oval, medium-sized to large neurons. They had a dark cytoplasm containing numerous free ribosomes, rough endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, lysosomes, several Golgi apparatuses, and an oval nucleus. The axon terminals were small and usually contacted thin processes extending from the dendrites or the soma. About half of the terminals contained round vesicles, while the rest contained pleomorphic vesicles. Both types of terminals made asymmetric synaptic contacts. We then retrogradely labeled the neurons projecting to the cardia and the pylorus with wheat germ agglutinin conjugated horseradish peroxidase to examine their ultrastructural characteristics. The neurons projecting to the cardia (33.3x22.4 microm) were similar to the neurons projecting to the pylorus (33.4x24.7 microm) in their size and ultrastructural appearance. The neurons not projecting to the stomach (40.4x28.0 microm) were significantly larger than the neurons projecting to the cardia or the pylorus. Only a few axosomatic terminals were found on the neurons projecting to the cardia (1.6 per somatic profile), the pylorus (1.3) or the neurons not projecting to the stomach (0.9). These results provide morphological bases for the sympathetic motor neurons innervating the stomach.
