Description

City CPD Club Cornwall Day 4

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 2019, an innovative schedule of seminars and workshops covering the 10 mandatory topics, is designed to help you achieve your annual CPD requirements.


Fire Safety for designers Post-Grenfell

Since the introduction of CDM 2015, architects have welcomed the role of the Principal Designer and integrated health and safety into architectural design; in a similar way, so too can fire safety design be embedded. By working with other specialists in the industry such as the fire brigade, suitable methods of fire safety can be developed, which meet the recommendations of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety and create a protocol for the industry to deliver fire safety in all types of buildings.

The Building Regulations Approved Documents Part B include sound guidance but have become an over-complicated, semi-prescriptive, quasi-interpretive set of documents with too many options and alternatives. They are set out in an order that does not reflect the design process and are infamously difficult to follow without a clear and easily recorded statement of completion or compliance.

This seminar will introduce the RIBA Plan of Work for Fire Safety and demonstrate methods of producing suitable fire strategy drawings, fire specifications, schedules of fire resisting and stopping components and materials, management tools to ensure these are delivered on site and records of these issues for the Fire and Emergency File at hand-over. The industry must now show leadership to ensure fire safety in all our buildings and these are the first industry-changing steps.

Speaker Paul Bussey

Core Curriculum topics

1. Legal, regulatory and statutory compliance
2. Health, safety and wellbeing
3. Places, planning and communities


Strategies and solutions for designing inclusive environments

An inclusive environment removes physical barriers and ensures the widest possible number of people can participate in all social, educational and work aspects of life irrespective of their personal circumstances. This seminar will cover three key areas:

  • Users and the barriers that can prevent or limit access. This session will explore why even some small features are important, but often omitted, and how they impact on individuals
  • A succinct overview of the Equality Act, Public Sector Equality duty and best practice and what this means for, you, as architects, when advising clients
  • Inclusive design through each RIBA Stage, highlighting the pitfalls and reasons projects may fail to reach their inclusive design potential. This will include a mini access appraisal of a design to allow you to identify potential inclusive design issues and discuss solutions

The seminar will be interactive with questions and interrogation of the issues encouraged. There will be an emphasis on the practical approach to inclusive design using photos and real examples to explore.

Speaker Simone West

Core Curriculum topics

1. Inclusive environments
2. Architecture for social purpose
3. Health, safety and wellbeing


Community Engagement: collaborative design techniques

It is an ever-evolving landscape for design professionals, with increasing expectations placed on them to deliver community engagement for their commissioning clients, and a growing movement of community clients commissioning architects. There is also a shift in policy and financial constraints that place even more pressure on the design professions to be skilled and confident design enablers able to conceive and deliver effective community engagement strategies.

This interactive seminar will explore how to work with community stakeholders and clients through collaborative design processes. It will explore design engagement from the perspective of the designer, the commissioning client and a member of a local community invited into a design engagement process.

The session will include presentation material and case studies, discussion and interactive workshop activities focusing on:

  • Place quality and equality: how to engage non-professionals in conversations about how we shape our places and about the potential of great design to improve our opportunities, experiences and interactions
  • Defining and exploring community-led, participatory and co-design processes
  • Developing and implementing a strategy for community engagement in a design process
  • Defining parameters and expectations for community engagement with both commissioning clients and local stakeholders
  • Practical tools and approaches for engaging community stakeholders and local people in design processes
  • Building social value and empowerment opportunities into design processes
  • Working with community clients: what to expect and what to ask for


The seminar will provide you with practical tools and approaches to use in your own work.
