This document defines the WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 (hereafter, "Profile"), consisting of a set of non-proprietary Web services specifications, along with clarifications, refinements, interpretations and amplifications of those specifications which promote interoperability.
Simple straight, beveled or rounded edges are pretty standard for the industry, and the extra cost of the edging is minimal if at all, adding $5 to $20 per linear foot of edging to the price of the countertop. More elaborate designs are available if preferred, but are more expensive. A concave rounded edge called the cove gives a grooved edge to the countertop. The ogee edge style combines concave and convex curves in its profile, giving an elegant S-shaped profile. The Dupont edge is a popular edge combining a sharp, straight angle with a bullnose-like curve. Multiple rounded, bullnose, or cove edges or combinations of these give a multi-ridged or cascading design. A variety of edge profiles combining different curves and angles at different points along the thickness of the slab can be produced for a fancier or custom look. The bottom edge of the countertop can be shaped as well as the top edge. The design can be undercut so that the top edge of the surface juts out farther than the bottom.
When new people join the team they produce their own one-page profile and are added to the teams. This helps reduce all the awkward questions that people can be faced with when first working together. It means that we don’t have to try to work each other out as we have all the important information on one sheet of paper. Just like the team profile, our individual profiles change and develop with us and with Jennie. Revisiting them is an excellent way of reviewing what is working and what isn’t. Are we respecting what we have each stated as important? Are we supporting each other to do the best job we can do? And crucially – are we being true to our purpose and keeping Jennie at the heart of everything we do? This is a question we as a team ask ourselves regularly, it is what makes us strong and our profile empowers us to make it happen.
