Case Study on HomeChoice Holdings Ltd

Ohio was one of 17 states to receive federal funding for the Money Follows the Person (MFP) rebalancing demonstration in January 2007. The state was awarded up to $100 million in enhanced federal matching funds in order to transition roughly 2,200 seniors and people with disabilities from institutions to home and community-based settings and to help Ohio balance itslong-term services and support system.

Case Study on Hammarby Sjostad

Case Study for Hammarby Sjostad

Hammarby Sjostad is a district in Stockholm, Sweden adjacent to the downtown, which is a brownfield site that is being developed as a sustainable neighborhood. Previously an industrial waterfront, planning for the redevelopment of the site began in 1996. The 2004 Olympic bid was incorporated into the site’s redevelopment, however after Sweden did not receive the bid, the city shifted its development focus to building a sustainable community that is twice as efficient as a typical one.

The Hammarby Model, which is the district’s attempt at a balanced, “closed-loop urban metabolism”, accounts for the unified infrastructure of energy, water and waste. In addition to the Hammarby Model infrastructure, the presence of urban-scaled density, access to multiple modes of transit with an emphasis on reduced car commuting, preservation and restoration of existing natural systems, and progressive construction and housing policies make Hammarby Sjostad an “effective demonstration that ecological and urban go together” by means of comprehensive planning.

Case Study on Wildland Fire and Fuel Management: Principles for Effective Communication

A Case Study about Wildland Fire and Fuel Management: Principles for Effective Communication

Introduction: Federal agencies have many options for communicating with the public (e.g., brochures, newspapers, Web sites, public meetings, demonstration sites), but often have limited resources for completing the utreach job. Ultimately, agency professionals have to make difficult choices about the most effective use of personnel and financial resources. The purpose of this paper is to highlight successful communication strategies and illustrate a set of four guiding principles for building successful fire and fuels management outreach programs in forest communities.





Public support for fire and fuels management is greatly enhanced through effective public communication and outreach programs. Many management units are well along in their own communication programs and are finding success through multiple methods and support of outreach personnel. The communication principles presented in this chapter, developed from research examining wildfire outreach efforts, suggest how programs can be focused to encourage citizens to share the responsibility for fuels management.

Case Study on Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable

Foreword: This report is a collection of abstracts summarizing 19 new case studies of site remediation applications prepared primarily by federal agencies. The case studies, collected under the auspices of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (Roundtable), were undertaken to document the results and lessons learned from technology applications…






Introduction: Increasing the cost effectiveness of site remediation is a national priority. The selection and use of more cost-effective remedies requires better access to data on the performance and cost of technologies used in the field. To make data more widely available, member agencies of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (Roundtable) are working jointly to publish case studies of full-scale remediation and demonstration-scale projects…

Abstracts of Remediation Case Studies

Increasing the cost effectiveness of site remediation is a national priority. The selection and use of more cost-effective remedies requires better access to data on the performance and cost of technologies used in the field. To make data more widely available, member agencies of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable (Roundtable) are working jointly to publish case studies of full-scale remediation and demonstration-scale projects. Previously, the Roundtable published 13 volumes and a CD-ROM of case study reports. Click here to read more…

Case Study on Bevan Group

Bevan Motor Bodies, which employs 160 people across its four sites in the Black Country, gave Adrian Bailey (MP for West Bromwich West and Chair of the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee) and MAS’s Martin McKeever a special demonstration of the ‘Bevan 21’.The future of vehicle motor bodies was on display recently when a leading Oldbury manufacturer showcased its new environmentallyfriendly model that has already chalked up in excess of £2m of new sales. The aerodynamic eco body reduces weight, increases payload and cuts the carbon footprint of the vehicle and provides customers with a Millbrook-approved 15% saving on fuel costs.
