Event description

Description

City CPD Club Hereford Day 1

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.


The big wins: deliverable and cost-effective sustainable design solutions

In a changing world, where the ethical function of architecture is in a state of flux, is it possible for the architecture we create to contribute to sustainable development that is not only good for the planet but is also affordable? The answer lies in a design where cost and sustainability are integral from the outset. Throughout the early stages in the design process, big decisions are made that will affect both the cost and the sustainability of the building and yet, at this time, there is little input from cost or energy consultants. So, you, as the architect, need to take the lead.

This seminar will give you the knowledge to make these decisions with an understanding of the implications on energy and cost; this is the true process of value engineering as opposed to cost cutting.

Whilst there will be examples of real projects of every size, the seminar will focus on strategies for assessing cost and sustainability so that you can find your own solutions. At the core of this is an understanding that design is an iterative process: we do, we reflect and then optimise and do again. This seminar will investigate what practices need to put in place to get the most out of design evolution.

You will come away with tools, techniques and mindset to apply to every project you are involved with, irrespective of size or sustainability, design and budget aspirations. A wholly interactive seminar, it will provide you with multiple design exercises to challenge, bring a deeper understanding and to learn from other participants.

A common sense primer on implementing BIM for any size practice

The effective adoption of BIM is a challenge faced by many architectural practices. BIM offers the opportunity to deliver better projects more effectively. However, to transition to a different method of production and delivery, a coordinated, structured change management approach is required. Through the presentation, the goals to be achieved and the sequential process of decisions and actions will be described.

Initially, the external drives behind the adoption of BIM in the UK will be explained and the fundamental differences between delivery using CAD and a BIM approach will be expanded on. In addition, the requirements of associated disciplines and clients will be discussed. This seminar will explore the implication of key documents such as PAS 1192, the use of Cobie and common data environments.

During the second session, BIM as a delivery system and how this will change the practice deliverables will be considered. In addition, the speaker will discuss how BIM will affect specification creation and project interactions.

The typical stages of BIM adoption and continual improvement will be expanded on. This seminar will elaborate on developing BIM maturity and the ongoing process of developing efficiencies and effectiveness through BIM.

Finally, the speaker will discuss some case studies of BIM adoption in different practices and appropriate references and sources of information will be provided.
