City CPD Club Liverpool 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.

Design risk management: design coordination and the challenge of culture change
  









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

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. 



Speaker: Craig Robertson, ALLFORD HALL MONAGHAN MORRISCraig is an architect, researcher and teacher with expertise in environmental design and engineering. Prior to joining AHMM, Craig led architectural projects in the education, commercial and housing sectors before moving into academia. He completed his PhD at the UCL Energy Institute focusing on the potential for energy consumption information to inform and justify strategic and detailed building design decisions. Craig is responsible for AHMM’s sustainability agenda and leads the building performance team, which supports designers with performance analysis, environmental input, post occupancy evaluation and research. Craig’s current research focusses on the relationships between architecture, performance, place and investment.

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, SE3DTomas 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.
