A one-of-a-kind masterpiece for Frank McKinney is constructed by Robert W. Burrage and RWB Team.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s rare to see new home construction in South Palm Beach, Florida as an available oceanfront property is highly sought after in this exclusive area. However, one state-of-the-art masterpiece, recently built by RWB Construction Management, has been making headlines for its stunning design.

“Having created many beautiful direct oceanfront homes over the last 28 years I can unequivocally state that Robert and his team are the absolute best in the business.” – Frank McKinney

Frank McKinney, a renowned real estate market developer, is retiring after a successful, lengthy career. To ensure the success of his final work of art, McKinney contracted Robert W. Burrage and the team at RWB. This was the fourth and final such collaboration. The luxury oceanfront mansion is located at 3492 S. Ocean Blvd. and is currently priced over $15 million. www.3492socean.com

The 7,366 square foot home sits on 100 feet of oceanfront property with easy access to the beach. Floor to ceiling windows provides breathtaking vistas from every level. It will be sold completely furnished with a variant blue and neutral color theme throughout. The three-story residence has five large bedrooms and five baths. Four of those bedrooms boast eastern/ocean exposure providing privacy and seaside ambiance.

Robert Burrage fulfilled McKinney’s “tropical modern” vision through luxurious details that are unique to the property. A “water walkway” with waterfall features leads to the front entry and an oceanfront entertaining area. A 50-foot infinity-edge pool eases the eye toward the ocean, transforming the outdoor living space into part of the view itself.

Inside the home, frequent splashes of aqua and marine blue fuse perfectly with the ever visible oceanscape just beyond the glass. The Team was also able to include an extraordinary indoor jellyfish sphere that has a touch tank and a living-reef aquarium. Another outstanding feature is the rooftop lounge, which is perfect for entertaining guests on a balmy South Florida evening. But first, they’ll be enthralled by their ride in the ocean view elevator, which is “encased in a glass wine room and bar.”

Robert W. Burrage and his team at RWB Construction Management truly exceeded all expectations. To see their portfolio of luxury estates, visit https://rwbconstructionmgmt.com/.

10x Living at Breakfast Pointe

A 360-unit multifamily complex in Florida, the bonus property is an excellent investment and a strong addition to the Cardone Capital portfolio.

This property was so good, I did not want to wait until the next fund. I also wanted to reward our existing investors by adding this additional property.”

— Grant Cardone

AVENTURA, FL, USA, August 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Real estate investment holding company Cardone Capital is pleased to announce that it is adding a bonus property, 10x Living at Breakfast Pointe, to Fund IV and Fund V, which now have a total of five properties equaling 2,014 units and a total property portfolio value of $472 million.

10x Living at Breakfast Pointe is a 360-unit multifamily complex in the heart of Panama City Beach, Florida. Strategically situated along Highway 98 with excellent visibility, the community is within minutes of the beach, which is ranked #3 on Trip Advisor’s Top Beaches in the country. It also offers easy access to 1.2 million square feet of upscale retail, golf courses, and community attractions.

Built in 2007, along with excellent upkeep, the property is in superior condition. Located in a Class-A market with low supply and high demand, it features a resort style pool, detached garages, 24-hour fitness center and controlled access gates along with a full equipped screened-in lounge area. The 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units contain soaring 9-foot ceilings, ceiling fans, ceramic tile flooring, full equipped kitchens, in-unit washer and dryers and walk in closets.

Cardone Capital founder Grant Cardone points out that Panama City’s rental market has had a high growth rate over the past six years, a trend that’s expected to continue in the years to come.

“This property was so good, I did not want to wait until the next fund,” says Cardone. “I also wanted to reward our existing investors by adding this additional property. This is a tremendous opportunity for you and your family to become a part of something bigger than us all.”

Cash flow distributions start within 30 to 75 days after the investment has been made, and from there, investors are paid regularly every month.

“The time to invest in real estate is now,” says Vice President Ryan Tseko. “Especially with the stock market behaving how it is at the moment. I don’t think you’d be able to find a better investment deal anywhere. And at Cardone Capital you don’t have to be an accredited investor, so it’s open to anyone who’d like to see their money actually working for them.”

The addition of the new property ties in with the company’s plan to increase overall growth of the current portfolio 10x over the next five years.

Cardone warns that limited spots are available, as both Fund IV and Fund V are filling up fast and are expected to close in the near future.

2019 – Real Estate Investments & Return on Spanish Property

Luxury Property For Sale in Marbella Spain

Marlo Property – Marbella Property Experts

MARBELLA, MALAGA, SPAIN, August 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The impressive story of the Spanish surge in the property market of 11.2% includes setting the highest goal since 2008. These figures are based on the statistical data of the Central Bank of Spain which released its report in November 2018.

Experts are indicating that the 11.2% increase is based on two performances. The gross rental yield is indicated to be at 4.04%, and the capital gain estimation sits at 7.16%.

Those contemplating investment in Spanish property can rely on seven very strong factors.

Low-interest rates: Investors not only have the opportunity to take advantage of this surge but can also enjoy the low interest rates of near 2%. This is a rate that is at the low end of the ten-year end scale. What this all means is that is now the time for investors to make their Spanish property purchases. There are no guarantees that the interest rates will remain this low. Signs are that inflation is on the rise. A good indicator of change interest rates is coming can be seen by the rise in the US rates putting it at 3% in June of 2018.

Lower Prices: According to some experts “real estate prices remain lower than the prices of 10 years ago”. The Spanish property market statistics are showing the first solid return dating back to the 2008 crisis. The indicators of this began four years ago.

Weaker Performance: Spain holds second place for the weakest performance in house price changes on the European market. This is based on a ten-year time frame.

High Yields: Spain can boast of its cheap real estate with some of the highest yields compared to other cities in Europe. The highest rental yield resides in Barcelona.

Expensive Living: While Barcelona and Madrid hold the 7th and 8th positive for high living costs they are still much lower than in London and Paris. This explains why the Madrid and Barcelona returns are double of what is realized in Paris and London.

Increased Activity: Foreign property investment in Spain dramatically increased during 2018. Almost 100,000 properties were purchased by foreigners.

Economic Stability: Another driving factor of the surge in strong property investment opportunities is the growth and stability in the Economics of Spain. According to an October 31, 2018, Bloomberg report,” Spanish economy proves to be Eurozone bright spot as recovery holds.”

What The Experts are Forecasting:

Experts are setting a lot of high expectations for 2019. Some are forecasting a 5% price increase and a growth of 13% in transactions. Added to these predictions is a suggestion of a 10% increase in rental prices.

All of the collected data and strong predictions and forecasts of experts should be taken into account. They are all indicators that now is the time to invest in the Spanish property market for those who are intent on both short and long term gains.

Grant Cardone Identifies the # 1 Worst Investment Mistake Anyone Can Make

Cardone Capital

Cardone Capital

Grant Cardone of Cardone Capital debunks the myths surrounding home ownership.

Houses weren’t built for people, they were built for banks. People are being lied to when they’re told a house is a good investment.”

— Grant Cardone

AVENTURA, FL, USA, August 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cardone Capital founder, Grant Cardone, has the inside scoop when it comes to the accumulation of wealth. A New York Times bestselling author and the world’s top sales trainer, Cardone is an internationally renowned speaker on leadership, real estate investing, entrepreneurship, social media, and finance. As a revered and valuable resource for people of all ages and walks of life, he was named number one of the "25 Marketing Influencers to Watch in 2017" by Forbes Magazine.

When Cardone speaks, people listen.

And when it comes to the topic of investing, he has a lot to say.

In a recently released YouTube video, Cardone aired his views on ‘The Worst Investment You Can Ever Make.’

“They won't teach you this stuff in school,” says Cardone, “But here's the brutal truth about single-family homes…and the reason I started www.cardonecapital.com.”

“Houses weren’t built for people, they were built for banks,” Cardone explains. “People are being lied to when they’re told a house is a good investment. A house is actually the worst investment you could ever make, for one good reason…you have to pay the house; the house doesn’t pay you. And if it doesn’t pay you, it’s not a good investment.”

Cardone firmly believes that although home ownership is a bad investment, multifamily real estate investing is the ultimate way for everyday investors to become wealthy. Cardone Capital offers accredited and non-accredited fund opportunities with cutting-edge approaches that are changing the face of the industry. The initial down payment can be relatively small, and, unlike with home ownership, investors start to see a passive income within 30 to 90 days.

For more information about exciting investment opportunities available through Cardone Capital, visit the company’s website at https://cardonecapital.com.

Chuck Hansen to Present New Standards for Testing Cured-In-Place Pipes as 'Watertight' at Australian No-Dig Conference

Electro Scan’s Adoption Grows as Traditional Pipe Inspection Methods Fall Short of Testing Cured-In-Place Pipe for Watertightness and Locating Infiltration

It's hard to tell a utility that their pipe leaks more after CIPP lining. But it happens more often than not, despite using high resolution CCTV cameras after customer laterals are re-opened.”

— Chuck Hansen, Chairman & Founder, Electro Scan Inc.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan Inc. announced today that its Chairman & Founder, Chuck Hansen, will be returning to Melbourne, Australia to speak at the 13th Annual 'No-Dig Down Under' Conference and Exposition, 11 September 2019. Hansen will present 'New Standards for Testing & Certifying Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) as Watertight.'

Today, a large percentage of CIPP liners installed worldwide undergo little to no testing for watertightness and simply rely on a video inspection — after installation — to ensure that a smooth liner has been installed and that all lateral connections were re-opened.

Despite the longstanding use of trenchless technology to renew or replace existing pipelines without digging, only recently has machine-intelligent Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) technology become available to provide unbiased & unambiguous full-length 360-degree CIPP liner assessments for watertightness.

While CIPP lining technologies have improved since their original introduction in 1972, the ability for contractors to achieve consistent quality installations has not yet been demonstrated.

Hansen's paper will review the adoption of new standards for testing CIPP for sewerage assets, in accordance with ASTM F2550 "Standard Practice for Locating Leaks in Sewer Pipes By Measuring the Variation of Electric Current Flow Through the Pipe Wall" and for water assets, in accordance with AWWA M77 "Condition Assessment for Water Mains."

Utilizing the new testing standards, Electro Scan Inc. recently provided assessment services to the Institute for Underground Infrastructure (IKT), based in Gelsenkirchen, German, as part of its government-sponsored Short-Liner CIPP research study.

Reaction from global CIPP suppliers & contractors has been mixed, with several leading lining companies recommending the new testing standard to demonstrate their product superiority and commitment to deliver consistent & sustainable watertight liners.

In contrast, leading water utilities & smart cities have applauded the new testing standard to combat rising sea levels, the effects of climate change, and to maintain resilient underground infrastructure.

Recently, over 160km (100 miles) of condition assessment projects — using the new inspection standards — were announced in the U.S., including a 50km (30 mile) project for Hillsborough County, Florida, and a 35km (22 mile) project for the City of Kansas City, Missouri Smart Sewer program.

Separately, Kansas City's Smart Sewer program recently conducted a 10km (6 mile) legacy CIPP assessment, including fully-lined sewer mains and full-length laterals, assessing installations less than 5 years old.

Last week, Electro Scan announced the release of new Artificial Intelligent (AI) software that locates & measures CIPP pinholes in liters per second and gallons per minute.

FELL testing of CIPP is fast, accurate, and repeatable, and can be scheduled immediately following curing, allowing contractors to make needed repairs, prior to Owner Acceptance.

Similar to 'holiday testing' of protective coatings, Electro Scan uses a machine-intelligent electrically-charged probe to automatically locate & measure leaks in liters per second or gallons per minute.

If a low voltage circuit is established between the inside of a pipe and the surface, a leak location can be digitally mapped to the closest 1 centimeter or 3/8 inch with the amount of electric current converted to liters per second or gallons per minute using Electro Scan's cloud-based application.

Results are available in minutes on its cloud-based application developed & managed by Hansen Analytics LLC, without the need for third-party data interpretation.

Electro Scan equipment can be purchased directly by a water utility and added to nearly a dozen brands of CCTV trucks or vans, to conduct their own legacy CIPP inspection projects and to prioritize pipes for rehabilitation that are not accurately selected using traditional TV cameras.

Alternatively, Electro Scan services can be provided by authorised FELL contractors, licensed on a project-specific basis.

The new FELL standard for CIPP can also be used to assess a variety of new & existing pipe materials, including metallic pipes that have epoxy linings or are cement-mortar lined and Spray-In-Place Pipe (SIPP) coatings.

The new standard has already been included in projects in the United States, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United Arab Emirates.

Today, water utilities in Australasia have an incentive to adopt the new standard to safeguard their capital investments and protect the environment from sewerage leaks that may contaminate local water supplies and contribute to water losses that may occur before arriving at a customer's tap.

New standards apply to testing of CIPP liners for use in gravity sewers, pressurized water mains, rising mains, and domestic plumbing fixtures.

The industry has long recognised the benefits of CIPP compared to conventional dig & replace.

Yet, test coupons or samples taken at the end of a lined pipe are not representative of full-length 360-degree liner quality and CCTV cameras cannot judge watertightness of CIPP liners.

Since Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) operators are not able to tell the difference between superficial cracks and cracks that go through a pipe wall or joint, industry experts have long acknowledged that manually-operated cameras and subjective coding of defects were never meant to warrant CIPP liners as structurally-sound or leak-free.

Acoustic sensors, lasers, sonar, and electromagnetic sensors are not able to perform reliability testing of CIPP liners.

In 2016, the Japan Sewer Collection System Maintenance Association (JASCOMA) based in Tokyo, awarded Electro Scan Inc. 'Certificate #12 for Watertightness Testing' after two years of independent testing.

The larger the number of leaks, pinholes, and permeable surfaces in CIPP liners, the higher the risk a relined pipe will not perform throughout its useful life.

Once a liner is pulled through a sewer or water main it must be inflated, heated, and cured, to create a new pipe.

Typically using boiling water or steam to form a new pipe, a variety of problems can occur that result in undetected leaks.

Common defects that cause leaks — not detected by visual inspection — include overcooking the liner, failure to maintain minimum resin-to-felt ratios, and accidental cuts attempting to reinstate customer lateral connections.

The new standard covers all forms of CIPP installation, including thermal (boiling water), steam, ultraviolet (UV), and light-emitting diode (LED) curing methods.

"It's hard to tell a utility that their pipe leaks more after CIPP lining. But it happens more often than not, despite using high resolution CCTV cameras after customer laterals are re-opened," stated Hansen.

During the installation process, CIPP liners will temporarily prevent water & sewer flow between residential households and businesses to their respective main.

Relying on specialized equipment to cut a precise opening in the wall of the liner to reconnect the customer service, proper care must be taken to reinstate laterals on the first attempt.

If measurement of a lateral's location & position is not consistent with prior readings, or off by as little as a centimeter or a half-inch, damage to the host connection may occur that was not present before CIPP lining.

And, new holes may increase the total defect flow in pipes, even after rehabilitation.

Operators that miss a customer's service location might cut a test hole to find its location.

Commonly referred to as "poke and hope," intentional & unintentional cuts in CIPP liner walls may go unnoticed by visual inspection and compromise a pipe's structural integrity and watertightness.

Used to find leaks 'after' rehabilitation, utilities & councils are using the new inspection standard to test pipes 'before' rehabilitation, too.

"By identifying laterals that do not leak 'before' rehabilitation, utility operators can easily judge the quality of a contractor's lateral reinstatements by comparing before and after test readings," states Hansen.

Use of inappropriate equipment can also cause leaks in newly lined pipes, not seen or recorded by CCTV operators.

Like putting on new tires or chains to travel through snow or rough terrain, contractors may use rough-edged wheels, re-fitted onto CCTV cameras or other devices, after lining, to gain more traction and less wheel spinning.

Provided to help maneuver heavy equipment inside of CIPP lined pipes, most tenders or specifications do not prohibit the use of potentially harmful wheels.

Able to dig tracks in the bottom of poorly lined pipes, and not easily seen by CCTV, the new standard readily locates & quantify leaks caused by equipment.

Rehabilitation effectiveness can be measured immediately following repairs.

In 2015, WRc plc (Swindon, England) executed a Strategic Marketing Agreement to offer Electro Scan Services on an exclusive basis in the UK.

Interested water utilities, CIPP suppliers, and contractors may contact Mr. Hansen, directly, at chuck@electroscan.com to arrange a meeting.

Hansen is well known to the Australian water industry becoming the first asset management provider to offer a fixed asset accounting application, tied to specific sewerage & water assets, in compliance with AAS27 "Financial Reporting by Local Governments."

In 1995, Hansen's sewerage & water asset management solutions were selected by the former Association of Local Government Engineers of New Zealand (ALGENZ) to inventory & manage assets throughout New Zealand.

As the majority shareholder for Hansen Australasia Pty, Hansen's Melbourne office on Collins Street employed over 60 employees prior to the company's sale to Infor Global in 2007 for US$100 million.
