Event description

Description

We have updated the 10 mandatory RIBA CPD Core Curriculum topics in response to the skills our members need to practice architecture, now and in the future. The ten Core topics will help you maintain competence, update your knowledge, acquire new skills, future-proof yourselves and your businesses and deliver socially purposeful architecture.

The RIBA City CPD Club 2018, an innovative schedule of seminars and workshops covering the 10 mandatory topics, is designed to help you achieve your annual CPD requirements.

Sustainable concrete: practical guidance for specification of low energy buildings

This seminar will be a series of practical and informative sessions providing you with technical guidance on specification and detailing using concrete to achieve low energy design.

The presentation will include:

  • Specifying sustainable concrete
  • Fabric for energy efficiency and climate change adaption
  • Concrete and BREEAM.

A key benefit of concrete and masonry is its ability to provide material efficiency by reducing the need for internal linings. The second part of the seminar will provide guidance for achieving good looking concrete, including polished concrete floors, exposed cast in situ concrete and the range of finishes and textures possible using architectural and structural precast concrete.

The sessions will be illustrated with built examples and a range of samples of different concrete finishes will be to hand. Guidance publications from The Concrete Centre will be available for you to take home. A precast concrete representative has been invited at each session to complement the talk.

Speaker Elaine Toogood, The Concrete Centre

Core Curriculum topics

2. Design, construction and technology

Virtual Reality in architecture: an invaluable asset to help clients understand spaces

Virtual Reality is already used in architecture and experts predict the role of this popular technology will increase in the future. After a short introduction covering the history and mainstream uses of VR, the speaker will describe how VR can be applied in architecture and used throughout the design process, helping clients and stakeholders better understand buildings from the very first client meeting, whilst speeding up the design process.

The seminar will look into different types of VirtualReality and headsets (static views vs motion capture walkthroughs and different types of VR experiences) and the diversity of software available, such as Plug and Play or advanced use.It will also include a description of photogrammetry and its power when combined with VR.

Based on personal experience, the speaker willdemonstrate how Virtual Reality is a real asset in architecture and how it can fundamentally change the client/architect relationship.

The session will be a useful source of recommendations on:

• How to make a start with a VR set up
• What software and hardware are required to achieve successful results
• The cost involved
• The options of outsourcing or in-house production
• How VR can help sell architectural services and increase fees.

This seminar will include an interactive workshop when you will be able to experience the use of equipment provided by the speaker on the day.
