Description

City CPD Club Gateshead 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 2020, an innovative schedule of seminars and workshops covering the 10 mandatory topics, is designed to help you achieve your annual CPD requirements.


Energy retrofitting historic buildings


80% of the current building stock will still be in use in 2050. To meet the UK’s carbon targets, an estimated twenty-five million existing homes will need to be energy-retrofitted over the next 30 years, including historic, listed and other hard to treat buildings.


Although a range of deep energy retrofit strategies and standards have evolved like Carbon Lite, EnerPHit and Energie-Sprong, there is no one-size-fits-all solution with historic buildings. Projects are often limited by materials, construction, the condition they are in or existing structure.


Successful energy retrofits are about striking the right balance. Understanding the opportunities and benefits in terms of energy savings, comfort, wellbeing and related costs for each individual measure is key to allowing designers and clients to make informed decisions.


On an item by item basis, this seminar will illustrate the key energy saving opportunities within existing buildings and how to tailor a retrofit master plan. Knowledge will be shared based on completed examples, including deep energy retrofits to EnerPHit, Carbon Lite and Energie-Sprong standards. This seminar will cover the following:


  • What retrofit standards are out there and what’s the difference

  • What design tools to use, good practice guidance and industry standards

  • How to avoid the pitfall: potential risks from insulating historic construction and best practice guidance relating to rising damp, condensation and radon

  • On an item by item basis, comparison of which measures have the greatest impact on heat loss, comfort, costs and energy saving

  • Potential impacts and benefits for ventilation, air quality, humidity, mould and wellbeing


Speaker: Tomas Gaertner, SE3D
Tomas is a chartered architect and a director of SE3D, a RIBA chartered practice specialising in human centered, high performance, healthy design. Having specialised exclusively in low energy building design rooted in building physics throughout his career, Tomas was involved in a range of deep energy retrofits to Carbon Lite, EnerPHit and Energie Sprong standards. He is a founding director of the Building Biology Association, a certified Passivhaus designer and building biology consultant IBN and a regular speaker at RIBA and Green Register events, the UK Passivhaus conference and Ecobuild.


Core Curriculum topics

1. Buidling conservation and heritage
2. Sustainable architecture
3. Legal, regulatory and statutory compliance


Design risk management: design coordination and the challenge of culture


This seminar will give an overview of building and life safety for architects on small projects and will look at examples of risk and liability, regulatory oversight and competence in practice. Focusing on different procurement routes and construction contracts, the seminar will address key examples of design co-ordination, fire, contract administration, risk, negligence, contracts, liability, quality control, specification of materials, transfer of design responsibility, inspection duties, practical completion and practical issues facing architects.


The seminar will focus on the following issues:

  • Building a Safer Future Consultation Report

  • The Hackitt Review

  • The report of the independent inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools

  • Inspection duties

  • Practical completion

  • Construction contracts

  • Hazards and risks

  • Risk management

  • Regulatory oversight

  • Design coordination and the challenge of culture change

  • Practical examples on site for small scale projects

An architect’s guide to designing out terrorism


There is nothing new about terrorism in the UK and we have learnt a lot from its history over the past 100 years and beyond. This seminar will help you understand terrorism and terrorist tactics, allowing you to make decisions that could save lives.


This interactive seminar will provide an explanation of the current terrorist threats and how they may evolve in the future. Using case studies of actual attacks and exemplars across a range of typologies and scenarios, as well as original videos demonstrating how attacks have been planned and executed in the past, this seminar will focus on how building design, products and processes can be used to reduce opportunities for terrorist’s activity, as well as casualties should a terrorist attack occur.


The seminar will include sections on:


  • Blast, and how good design can mitigate the effects

  • Glazing types to reduce casualties

  • Understanding hostile vehicle mitigation

  • Building lockdown

  • Design measures e.g. mail rooms

  • Protecting heritage buildings


A multi-media terrorist attack will be played towards the end of this seminar, where you are encouraged to come up with design solutions that could prevent or reduce causalities and injuries had this scenario been real.


Speaker: Chris Phillips, IPPSO Ltd
Chris is a consultant, speaker and recognised counter terrorism expert. He has written articles and is a commentator on policing, security and counter terrorism on all the main media outlets. He is a very experienced trainer. As head of the NaCTSO he was responsible for the crowded places protective security project.
