In addition, the growth of the industrial sector involves with some major aspect. These major aspects are the local investment policy, foreign direct investment policy, labour management etc. Besides the necessary infrastructure for investment natural resources are also important and it is very clear that if all these essential elements are not available then growth of industrial sector is unfeasible. Besides all these things labour issues are also very important. Proper management of labour is an essential matter for growth of industrial sector. Timely disposal of labour disputes are also important. We see that in most of the cases the labour law disputes do not solve with in short time. So the remedy which is essential from the case becomes delayed. The labour law is very much important in Bangladesh perspective. It is highly important for the industrial development of Bangladesh. We know that labour is a most important part of an industry. So, we can not think an industry with out labour. Labour right is most essential in Bangladesh. But the labours are in ignorance about their right. They don’t know properly about labour laws and education. It is a great problem. For this reason, they retrenched by the employee. Very often, they retrenched with out any legal process.

Uncertainties will happen during the project runtime; hence identification of all possible of risk elements should be meticulously specified, and in the case of Regency Plaza, it can be associated with the design, development, quality, staffing, schedule and budget. Since the Regency Plaza was a mixed use project, and being the first of its kind undertaken by the Group, they may lack the experience in running this project. This was further compounded by the complication of the size and layout of the floor plate in terms of the difficulty of designing a structure to accommodate condominiums over the hotel rooms, seated over a parking garage. Elevator core location and column spacing were essentially fixed by these constraints. At the same time issues such as length of the hallways,......

The Regency Plaza case is no exception. Due to the nature of the project there is a large amount of sales and marketing involved, as well as the traditional project management skills such as managing design and construction as well as maintenance of cost, time and quality levels. Managing Design The Regency Plaza project involves both condominium and hotel sub-contracts[1]. Hodgkins was hired to manage the condominium project and so was hired after the conceptual design of the building was completed. This means that the scope of the design component of the project was limited by the design of each of the floor plates with which she was provided. The Regency Hotel Group (RHG) provided Hodgkins with strict targets that had to be achieved if the project were to be successful. A specialist in Condominium design and marketing, Russel Farley, was a member of the project team specifically hired to provide expert assistance and advice that would help Hodgkins achieve those targets.

Key stakeholders including the government, various government agencies, the BGMEA, factory owners and buyers have made significant progress to cope with the multi-dimensional challenges of governance and corruption in the garments sector of Bangladesh that were responsible for exposing the sector to unprecedented vulnerabilities in the wake of the Rana Plaza tragedy of April 24, 2013.

Rana Plaza

...The Collapse of Rana Plaza On April 24, 2013, a commercial building in Savar, the capital of Bangladesh collapsed. The death toll was estimated to be 1,129 bodies with just about 2,515 injured. The eight-story building consisted of many small businesses as well as industry leading companies such as H&M, Tesco, Gap, Walart, and Disney. With the garment industry making three-quarters of the total GDP for Bangladesh, there was no industry power used to take appropriate action to prevent the tragedy. In this paper I will state who bears most responsibility for the tragedy and what I feel the next appropriate actions should be taken. An ethics analysis will be completed on the three key players of the tragedy whom are the owners of the factory, the Bangladeshi government, and the companies that had products produced at Rana Plaza. I believe that the owners of the plaza bear the most responsibility for the tragedy at Rana Plaza. As owners, they have the responsibility to maintain, repair, and have the general upkeep of the building in good working order. This includes the repairs to the individual units as well as the repairs to the common elements of the building. The common elements include all parts of the property that are outside of the boundaries between the units that organizations occupy. The onus is on the owner that the funds collected for the lease or rent of each unit is used accordingly. The owner did not lack resources or comprehension to take action to prevent......

...Plaza, the Logistics Park of Zaragoza Author’s Name H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship LOG 5010 - International Transport & Logistics Term The Logistics Plaza of Zaragoza is the largest logistic park in Europe. It is a ten-year project that started in 2000, which is now at the middle of its completion. There are not many articles on logistic parks up till now because it is a very recent development. Generally, logistic activities would grow around strategic part without any pre-planning. Due to overcrowding of those areas, governments are now trying to place logistics in more decentralized regions and are trying to create services in order to attract customers. Case Study Summary The case of Plaza can serve as an instance for potential development, helping to assess the feasibility of newer projects in the same field. In the text, there are a lot of examples of automotive or hi-tech parks; however, there are no preceding case studies that are purely on logistic park. Plaza has been built in order to generate more jobs in Aragon, which is an area of Spain where population is continuously decreasing. (Watson, 2015) It aims to retain and focus on the existing young population, particularly highly skilled labor and Foreign Direct Investment in Spain and increase investment in Research and Development in a country in order to become successful in Europe.

Rana Plaza

...1. Why did the tragedy occur? The tragedy happened because of the poor construction materials which were found in the debris used in this building. This building was dangerous because it constructed on a pond. In addition, it needs to hold heavy machines but without any supporting walls. Before the collapsing of Rana Plaza, workers found a crack appeared in the wall of the building, and the engineer recommended that the workers be evacuated. However, supervisors had asked them to return to work due to the official claimed the building had been inspected and declared safe. Consequently, the Rana Plaza collapsed and caused a lot of people dead and wounded. 2. Who was responsible for the tragedy? I don’t think that only one entity had to be responsible for this tragedy. First, we know the expansion of the garments industry in Bangladesh so that it started to have more and more demand for the high rising buildings. Therefore, the owners of the original buildings started to change those into the factories and added extra floors which were lack of the permission, like the tragedy of Rana Plaza. I think the Bangladesh government failed to inspect the establishment of factories and understaffed to monitor the building codes. Then, the government should protect citizen rights, but the Bangladesh government failed to do this. Instead, the Bangladesh government makes people have unsafe working conditions and restrictions of labor unions. Lastly, MNC’s and factory owners should......

...Assignment on: “Tazreen Fashion and Rana Plaza Tragedy: Failure of Corporate Governance” Supervised By: Dr. Chowdhury Saima Ferdous Associate Professor, Department of International Business University Of Dhaka Course no: IB-409 (Corporate Governance) Prepared By: D.M. Saddam Hossan Roll no: 93 (5th Batch) Department of International Business University of Dhaka Date of Submission: October 4, 2015. A case for Rana Plaza & Tazreen Fashions Ltd. Bangladesh’s ready-made garments sector accounts for 80% of the country’s exports and employs over 4 million people, nearly three-quarters of who are women. It is estimated that the garment industry supports a further 25 million people and has played a pivotal role in the country’s development. On 24 April 2013, an eight-story commercial building, Rana Plaza, collapsed just outside Dhaka. The building contained five clothing factories: most of the people in the building at the time were garment workers. Over 17 days of search and rescue, 2,438 people were evacuated, more than 1,100 people died, and many more were left with life-long debilitating injuries. The land underneath the Rana Plaza was unsuitable for construction. The Plaza was originally designed as a four-story building primarily for retail store use, but was instead occupied by garment factories. The Plaza was owned by Sohel Rana, who used his aggressive tenacity and political connections to acquire illegal permits and bribe government officials to......

... The Sonic Plaza is protected by the 1990 Federal Artist Rights Act which is a subset of the copyright law. Therefore, the piece has to be maintained in perpetuity since it is officially considered part of American and North Carolinian culture. It’s very instance, there are computers to maintain and upgrade, software to be written, and components to replace and possibly design. There are many ways to improve the whole system like, the sonic gates could more sync with the steps. They could use weight sensors on the steps which would allow the Arduino to sync with music system. This would allow the weight of person to activate the music system instead of person crossing the sonic gates. Water Wall functions on the solenoid contracting and release mechanism. Usually solenoids tend to get worn out .One way to improve is by changing the mechanism they work, using opto-isolator circuit. This will help eliminate noise and safe some voltage when solenoid contracts. Each of these operations uses a different form of technology, as the glockenspiel uses a MDI sensor. MDI is a port on a hub or switch used to connect to other switches without requiring crossover cables.

Disaster in Bangladesh: the Collapse of the Rana Plaza Building

...Disaster in Bangladesh: The Collapse of the Rana Plaza Building 4. Do you think the legally binding agreement signed by H&M, Zara, Tesco, and others will make a difference? Does it go far enough? What else might be done? The agreement signed by H&M, Zara, Tesco and other retailers will make a difference but only for the manufacturers covered under the agreement. One article shows that this agreement is making a difference on 1,106 factories out of 5,000 to 6,000 garment factories in Bangladesh. So, there are still around 4,000 to 5,000 factories unaccounted for. Also, the agreement is only good for five years, what will happen when the agreement is over? This is not enough. One strategy that could be applied is financing through Development Impact Bonds (DIB) as recommended by Motoko Aizawara: The way forward for Bangladesh building and fire safety is to come up with an innovative structure involving public actors (e.g., the brands, service delivery or implementation organizations) with help from development finance experts and an intermediary organization. Naturally, the Accord and the Alliance member companies will be expected to demonstrate their accountability and commitment by investing in the bond. The DIB is derived from a Social Impact Bond (SIB). [pic] "Social Impact Bond diagram" by 01010101010101aaa (talk). Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons -......

River View Plaza

...River View Plaza New Services Memo Date: June 12, 2009 To: Steve Taylor, facilities manager From: Heather Reinders, DigiFast employee Subject: The advantages of a new service in the building This memo presents my ideas for adding a new service to the building. I propose we add a second break room, a gaming cafe, to the third floor of the building. How does this benefit the building? The most important advantage is that it will increase profit for the entire building. People from all over the building will be able to use this room. This means that they will be buying snacks, lunch, and drinks which will provide a significant amount of increase in funds for the building. A second advantage is that it will increase productivity throughout the businesses in the building, particularly for those businesses on the third and fourth floors. Currently those of us on the third and fourth floors are having to take longer breaks because of the time it takes to get to the break room on the first floor. By placing another break room on the third floor this will reduce the amount of time employees will take for breaks; therefore becoming more productive. The increased productivity is sure to increase profits for the entire building, thus providing validity for the first advantage listed above. How would the break room be set up? The new break room would be set up, as previously mentioned, as a gaming cafe. There would be a small restaurant; which restaurant could be......
