TriQuest Technologies, Inc., an IT Service Provider in Dallas – Fort Worth, Receives 2013 Greater Tarrant Business Ethics Award.


Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

IT service provider, TriQuest Technologies, Inc., receives the 2013 Greater Tarrant Business Ethics Award from the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. This prestigious award recognizes TriQuest Technologies’ adherence to ethical business practices across all of the information technology products and services the company provides to mid-size and small businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. http://www.triquesttech.com

Judged by a panel of business owners and professionals, the annual ethics award acknowledges the winner as a leader in ethical business based on three key criteria:

1.    Clear communications of the company’s ethical standards

2.    Transparent, honest and fair business practices

3.    A code of ethics, credo, code of conduct, or mission statement that clearly spells out the company’s requirement for honesty, integrity and compliance with the law in all business dealings

“We truly appreciate receiving this award from the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, because ethical business is so important to us,” explained TriQuest Technologies CEO Gary Tonniges, Jr. “Every member of the TriQuest team supports our ethical company culture, which is based on a set of shared values that are at the core of everything we do. These values require our employees to have a love of learning while being trustworthy, conscientious, persistent, honest, positive, humble, diligent, happy, and respectful.”

TriQuest Technologies integrates its ethical values and business practices into all aspects of its business, beginning at the hiring process. “All TriQuest Technologies employees are full-time employees who must commit to meeting our high ethical standards every day,” says Tonniges. “These ethical standards are communicated during the hiring process and all employees are held accountable for them. We don’t use subcontractors or third parties, so our clients can feel confident that they always receive consistent, honest, and fully transparent work from every TriQuest team member they come in contact with. I can’t imagine doing business any other way.”

By focusing on ethical behavior and top quality from its employees, TriQuest Technologies stands out from cost-cutting managed service providers. Guy Cumbie, president of Cumbie Advisory Services, Inc. and a member of the Greater Tarrant Business Ethics Awards committee shared, “The moral principles guiding TriQuest Technologies’ philosophies and the tangible set of practices employed by its management were clearly demonstrated in response to a rigorous application process.”

In addition to winning the 2013 Greater Tarrant Business Ethics Award, TriQuest Technologies is also a previous two-time winner of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award. Chamber President and CEO Bill Thornton applauded TriQuest Technologies’ for its commitment to “set the bar very high as a model of working with impeccable integrity.”

PMWC 2014 Silicon Valley Honors YW Kan with New Pioneer Award at Annual Conference

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2013

The Personalized Medicine World Conference, PMWC 2014, to be held on January 27-28, 2014 in Silicon Valley, provides real-world insights into the progress of personalized medicine. Participants can join the discussion and interact with key opinion leaders who are framing and forming the future of this rapidly changing industry. PMWC 2014 is co-hosted by Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Oracle.

This year, PMWC has launched a new honor, called the “Pioneer Award,” to be given on occasion to a rare individual who presaged the present day excitement regarding personalized medicine and made major advances in the field, even at a time when less-evolved technology and less encouragement from peers existed.

For the inaugural award, the Conference’s program committee has chosen to honor Dr. Yuet Wai Kan, an innovator in disease detection. Dr. Kan has pioneered the design and implementation of prenatal DNA-based screening tests for sickle cell anemia, thalassemias, and various other single gene disorders. Additionally, he discovered DNA polymorphism, used extensively in gene discovery.

Dr. Kan’s research has highlighted the links between specific genetic aberrations and congenital diseases, while also expanding knowledge of hematology and cellular microenvironments. His findings have led to additional research on gene expression control mechanisms, as well as the establishment of genetic disease models. Dr. Kan is currently working to use stem cell approaches to treat blood and infectious diseases.

Two Trails Client Wins USGBC South Florida GalaVerde Award for Most Outstanding LEED for Homes/Single Family With the 2020 Alton Project

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The GalaVerde Awards are awarded in several project categories including Public, Private, Single-Family, Municipal, Educational, Healthcare and Corporate. Two Trails client Matt Lahn owner of Florida Green Home Design Group won the USGBC South Florida GalaVerde Green Award for Most Outstanding LEED for Homes/Single Family for their work on the 2020 Alton project in Miami, FL. To our knowledge this project is the highest scoring LEED home in the nation with 120/80 points earned giving it a LEED Platinum designation.

The 2020 Alton project is a sleek, super-modern beauty — all concrete, glass, high-end European appliances, and high-tech bells and whistles. The project is about 3,200 square feet and it’s luxurious. The home, which for most days is net-zero, will also boast a minimal environmental footprint, a rarity in the area for new builds. The compact and efficient design of this home manages to fit five bedrooms and five bathrooms in just 3,200 sq. ft. Nestled on a site of 58x120 and with setbacks imposed by the city, the design sought to take advantage of these dimensions by making the main portion of the home a cube, which would be setback substantially from the busy street. An exposed masonry wall further protects the house by wrapping it on the north and west while creating a private courtyard for swimming and a balcony with views of the golf course across the street.

The home includes a dual 600-watt vertical axis wind turbine, a geothermal heating and cooling system, 7,000-gallon rainwater cistern, and a HERS rating of -8. And then there’s the 11.5-kilowatt rooftop solar array composed of frameless photovoltaic panels produced by 1SolTech. This project is among the first building projects, residential or commercial, to utilize these innovative, American-made solar panels. Given its Miami location and rough weather situations, the project's renewable energy systems are storm-resistant: the solar panels are rated for 160 mph winds and the turbines easily collapsible for when things outside get too windy. Additionally, there’s a back-up battery system and the aluminum framed, low-E windows from CGI are built to withstand Category 5-strength hurricane winds. A very unique feature is the rainwater cistern and the home’s reflecting pool are both lined with a nontoxic epoxy called Pond Armor that renders the water potable in the event of emergencies.

Other green specs of the 2020 Alton project include LED lighting throughout, sustainable wood custom cabinetry from Poggenpohl, WaterSense-qualified Toto faucets and fixtures, recycled glass countertops from Vetrazzo, Sherwin Williams low-VOC paints and finishes, and Icynene spray foam insulation. Outside, there’s Resyta decking and a pool equipped with an EcoSmarte water purification system that eliminates the need for chemicals. Last but not least the projects home's Walk Score of 85 is beyond excellent. South Beach is a short stroll away.

Green achievements for 2020 Alton:


    United States Green Building Council: LEED for Homes, LEED Platinum Designation
    Home Innovation Research Labs: ICC 700 National Green Building Standard EMERALD (highest level), indicating that the home saves 60% or more of its energy use.
    HERS (Home Energy Rating System) Index: -8 (100 is normal for new construction)
    Named an Energy Star® Qualified Home.
