City CPD Club Cornwall Day 3

The RIBA City CPD Club 2019 is designed to help you achieve your annual CPD requirements. Innovative schedule of seminars and workshops covering the mandatory RIBA Core Curriculum topics, the programme is delivered over four days, providing you with the flexibility to plan your annual CPD well in advance.

City CPD Club Cornwall Day 3

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.

Plan of Work through the conservation lens

The delivery of projects involving historical buildings requires a considered approach that uses the understanding of historical significance and conservation principles as the basis for decision making throughout the life of the project. This seminar will utilise practical project examples of varying scales to highlight the challenges encountered and will be structured based on the RIBA Plan of Work, covering:

  • The strategic brief stage: the importance of understanding significance and how this influences the brief, establishes the framework for development and the importance of identifying opportunities, constraints and potential risks. The level of survey information required will also be covered.
  • The developed design stage: the level of information required for approvals, including Listed Building, Planning, Conservation Area and Scheduled Ancient Monument consents and the complexity of dealing with detailed Planning and Listed Building conditions will be discussed.
  • The technical design stage: appropriate procurement methods and contract management, the level of detail required and the importance of clear recording methods to convey complex information will be covered. The impact of Building Regulations, including fire safety, will also be included.
  • The construction stage: the impact of discovering unforeseen issues on site, the challenges of managing unknowns within the constraints of restricted budgets and the importance of a team approach to issue resolution will be explained.

Following completion of the session, you will have developed an understanding of the complex issues to consider when dealing with projects involving historic buildings and how conservation principles are applied throughout a project’s development.

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.
