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


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.

Embedding sustainability into the RIBA Plan of Work


This seminar will provide guidance on how to develop and manage sustainability strategies for construction projects, using the RIBA Plan of Work, from inception to operation. The approach to setting sustainability objectives, with a focus on outcomes, will be applicable to both new build and refurbishment projects. Reference will be made to the recent review of the RIBA Plan of Work to show how architects and other professionals can establish project sustainability goals, implement a sustainability strategy, review the handover process and monitor intended outcomes. Examples will be given for evaluating energy/carbon targets, climatic design, resilience, water/waste management, material sourcing and wellbeing factors.


This session will be delivered by a member of the RIBA Sustainable Futures Group that has been working on the integration of sustainability into the Plan of Work and will include case studies and an interactive session. Whole life evaluation of projects will be considered and the training will be relevant to projects and developments of various sizes.
