Description

City CPD Club Norwich 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.

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


Business planning: key to running a successful practice

This seminar will be a lively mix of theory and practical exercises on four themes:

Business by design: an introduction to business strategy and business planning, including templates for architects and long-term questionnaire. This session includes answering the strategic questions: Where are you now? Where do you want to be in the future?

Marketing and winning work: an explanation of key marketing frameworks that work for architects: segmentation, AIDA, funnel, push-pull. This session will define three target sectors for each architect; matching three actions to each sector.

Managing people and projects: a review of best management tools to improve productivity; from resource planning software to simple checklists and KPIs. What to change first? Identifying key issues and focus on effective solutions.

Making money: discussion on the levers of profitability; how to increase revenues and when to cut costs. Reminder of 80/20 framework.

The speaker will share real life problems related to winning work and managing a business, with a focus on identifying actions you can implement immediately to see concrete results.

Speaker Lucy Mori

Core Curriculum topics

1. Business, clients and services
2. Procurement and contracts
3. Legal, regulatory and statutory compliance


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
