Thinking about taking a loan for buying a house?
Worried what if the project fails and your money is stuck?

There have been multiple instances of real estate scams but now you help avoid getting into one yourself.

c.c - @dmuthuk @KirtanShahCFP @iam_balaji @abhymurarka
Here's the solution- "APF Code" which is the “Approved Project Financial” Code.

A. A developer is required to have a valid APF code or number for every project.
B. You should always ask your developer about the APF code or number of your project as it is an easy way to check whether the property/project is registered, and approved by Housing Finance company or bank.

So about 2 weeks ago i was approached by a representative of the @KisumuCountyKE to do a design for their booth for @Africities9 it was such a short notice project but i did a concept which they insisted on because apparently thats how the government works.
After the preliminary concept was done they liked the work and asked me to continue with final renders. Thats when i told i need a show of comitment from your side either a contract or a downpayment.
He kept dodging the story saying he will talk to the @AnyangNyongo
There was so much back and forth so i cut my losses and forfeited the project. Only for them to implement my design concept 100% with no compensation and upon making a claim they denied it yet i have proof from conversations and even the design did.

[#THREAD] En ce lendemain de la journée internationale des forêts @JIF_France, le conflit opposant certains militants écologistes et les gestionnaires/exploitants forestiers pose une question centrale : la #forêt était elle mieux gérée avant ? 🧐
👇Réponse illustrée
Sous l'ancien régime, la forêt est un espace multifonctionnel. On y prélève du #bois pour la #construction, la #marine, pour se chauffer mais également sous la forme de #charbon de bois pour l'#industrie sidérurgique, très gourmande en combustible.
On retrouve ainsi des massifs de #futaies (arbres de grande taille et de gros diamètre) prélevé entre 80 et 100 ans et des #taillis (bois issus de rejets de souches) exploités à TRES courte rotation, entre 10 et 25 ans, dévitalisant les sols.

A year ago, we posted this cool video explaining how #3Dprinted homes are better than traditional ones. Still relevant. We now started talking with developers, and they love this value proposition as well
1. Our homes are #sustainable and produced with nearly #zerowaste because we only print what is needed. We even recycle the scraps
2. We offer a turnkey solution which means we take care of all the city permits dealing with contractors through the installation and delivery and anything else needed for your project. So all you'll have to do is sit back and relax

Vous connaissez le pont du Gard ? Oui bon ok, mais est ce que vous pensez bien le connaître ? Aller, laissez moi vous parler de ce mastodonte de pierre ! 1/17 ⬇️
Bon déjà commençons par le début, le pont du Gard n’est pas un pont. Enfin oui et non. En réalité il s’agit d’un pont-aqueduc, permettant de fournir les besoins en eau à la ville de Nemausus (Nîmes antique) 2/17
Le pont du Gard c'est aussi un beau bébé de 275m de long pour près de 50 000t, soit plus ou moins les mensurations du Titanic. Ça en fait de la caillasse. Malgré sa taille imposante, il n'est en réalité qu’une toute petite partie d’un aqueduc long d’environ 50 kilomètres. 3/17

UK #PMI data showed #construction activity slowing sharply in August. Given the amount of stimulus and relatively early stage in the recovery, to be slowing so close to the long-term trend is disappointing 1/4
Part of the slowdown can be linked to weaker growth of new orders for construction work, but as the chart shows, activity has slowed much more sharply than demand for new work, so there are other factors at play 2/4
Part of the slowdown is clearly linked to ongoing near-record #shortages of raw materials, as measured by suppliers' delivery times, which have in turn led to unprecedented price hikes for building materials in recent months 3/4

(1/6) Following the disappointing High Court decision for the #A303Stonehenge scheme last week, we’re keen to clarify a few things. Thread to follow: ⬇️
(2/6) This doesn’t mean the #Stonehenge #tunnel is cancelled (as you might have seen on #social media and in the press). The Secretary of State @transportgovuk is currently considering the judgment and the options. #A303Stonehenge #A303
@transportgovuk (3/6) The High Court ruling was not made about the merits of the #Stonehenge #tunnel #scheme itself – but concerned points of law in the way in which the decision was made to grant permission

Le Burj Khalifa aurait pu être construit autrement mais le sable aurait été importé
#Thread
Le sable du désert est (trop) fin et rond, façonné par le vent. Le sable de construction est issu de carrières, du lit des rivières et de plus en plus des fonds marins. Ce sable façonné par l’eau est plus gros, avec une géométrie particulière, choisie en fonction du type de béton
Le sable est un type de granulat dont l’utilisation dans le béton est standardisée, comme pour les autres applications dont les enrobés ou les remblais. En Europe, la norme EN 12620 spécifie les caractéristiques des granulats issus de matériaux naturels, artificiels ou recyclés.

1. We all saw the #destruction caused by visible #looting in #SAUnrest & communities are reeling from the impact. But about 1000 times of what it will cost to repair last week’s damage, was “invisibly” looted through #StateCapture & #corruption. Here are some highlights
2. According to @ShadowWorldInv1 the #ArmsDeal of the 1990’s cost SA an estimated R2,2 billion looted to pay bribes and kickbacks. To date nothing has been recovered. Money that could have changed the poor’s lives wasted on #GrandScaleLooting.
3. In 2015 @CompComSA found #construction companies #GroupFive, #WBHO, #BasilRead, Murray&Roberts, #Aveng & #StefanuttiStocks guilty of #colluding when building 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums. This added R14 billion to construction costs. (Your taxmoney!)

Britain has more job #vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need #migrants and millions of them. #Brexit was a con. Watch this 1½-minute video. Read my report on Facebook: bit.ly/3jutvuf LinkedIn: bit.ly/3hjBHLf
It's not just vacancies. Britain has more JOBS than Britons to do them. That's why we need millions of migrants. It really is that simple. Why else would the government offer 3 million Hong Kong citizens the right to come to the UK? Leave voters were misled... big time.
Our country has an ageing population, and a low birth rate. So, the truth is that we have to import young people and skilled (and many unskilled) people to do the jobs that we don’t have enough Britons to fill. The government, of course, knows this only too well.

Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.
