Description

City CPD Club Wiltshire 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.


Business of architecture: exploring ethics in practice

Architects face ethical dilemmas on a daily basis, from employment decisions to selecting projects and specifying materials. Whilst there is an increasing awareness of these challenging and sometimes complex issues, there are few opportunities to reflect and discuss them with fellow professionals and decide how best to take an ethical stance in today’s world.

The seminar will cover:

  • Your people: HR and employment best practice
  • Your projects: better projects: better outcomes
  • Your clients: how to influence the decision makers
  • Your supply chains: people and products
  • Social value: defining and improving your impact
  • Community work: how to work directly with community groups and consider varied perspectives
  • The UN Sustainable Development Goals: a framework for ethical practice

The speakers will explore the topics above through practical scenario workshops, which will present examples from practice to encourage dialogue and debate. Some of the tools and materials available to support ethics, ethical decision-making and ethical practice will be explored and you will be guided through the significant evidence base around why it’s important for you and your practice to engage with these issues today. The speakers will challenge and discuss the evidence and data which currently mounts to a strong business case in favour of ethical and sustainable practice.

This session is for architects working in small, medium and large practices; those working both nationally and internationally. It will explore a broad evidence-base and scalable steps towards ethical practice.

Speaker Alasdair Dixon and Carys Rowlands and Guest Speaker

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.

Speaker Paul Coates
