      City CPD Club Cornwall Day 2

      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 2018, an innovative schedule of seminars and workshops covering the 10 mandatory topics, is designed to help you achieve your annual CPD requirements. The impact of intervention in the historic environment One of the greatest challenges faced by architects today is how to intervene and upgrade the country’s most sensitive historic environments. As it is clearly obvious in our immediate surroundings, the initial reaction has been to try and replicate the styles of our past whilst using modern construction materials and fittings, without a real understanding of the natural evolution of styles or of the material issues faced by historic buildings. A more sustainable solution to the problems stated above would be advocating that all new-build projects in historic areas and alterations to historic buildings should be clearly of their time and that when refurbishing existing buildings, we should be finding new expressions for traditional forms, materials and techniques that are relevant to 21st century buildings. This seminar will describe how we can achieve a modern vision through sound knowledge of the historic development of the built environment, coupled with well-founded principles of sustainability and thorough understanding of materials and their properties. The speaker will demonstrate how the introduction of well-designed new buildings in the historic environment can provide an exciting opportunity to shape the future of our cities and towns, whilst the methods to achieve high standards in design, construction and craftsmanship will be our legacy to the historic environment of the future. Speaker Valeria Passetti, Conception Architects Core Curriculum topics1. Building conservation and heritage2. Procurement and contracts Sustainable concrete: practical guidance for specification of low energy buildings This seminar will be a series of practical and informative sessions providing you with technical guidance on specification and detailing using concrete to achieve low energy design. The presentation will include: Specifying sustainable concrete Fabric for energy efficiency and climate change adaption Concrete and BREEAM. A key benefit of concrete and masonry is its ability to provide material efficiency by reducing the need for internal linings. The second part of the seminar will provide guidance for achieving good looking concrete, including polished concrete floors, exposed cast in situ concrete and the range of finishes and textures possible using architectural and structural precast concrete. The sessions will be illustrated with built examples and a range of samples of different concrete finishes will be to hand. Guidance publications from The Concrete Centre will be available for you to take home. A precast concrete representative has been invited at each session to complement the talk.
