This seminar looks at areas of structural waterproofing, the hot melt rubber system, installation and typical applications.
Type:  Seminar
Acquiring key skills to effectively manage the challenging communication scenarios you face in your professional role and get the outcomes you need.
Type:  Seminar
This CPD aims to:

- Begin the study of elements of whole systems design with the site assessment phase.
- Explore building and site elements that are important in microclimatic design.
- Observe building form and microclimates where you live.
- Use the lecture and reading information to create (draw) a site assessment plan and (write) a Building Assessment for your case study site.
- Incorporate the study of water into climate modification techniques and design applications.
- Understand the functional and environmental implications of keeping stormwater on site.
- As the design statement and goals and objectives evolve, incorporate water, low impact design, and the inter-connectedness among various design elements and into the proposal.
Type:  Advanced degree , Online Learning
How to address the challenges of meeting the client expectations and the mechanisms through which the architect is able to manage their liability.
Type:  Seminar

Featured CPD Material

This seminar will provide information on:
- Understanding the technology
- Benefits of PV technology
- How to calculate expected power output of different products
- How technology responds to government requirements
- Financial incentives of inclusion of PV into buildings
- How PV can be integrated into buildings
Type:  Seminar
- How to assess suitability of a door type based on space available
- How to reduce construction costs by incorporating innovative design
- Discuss technology and system concepts which specifically address energy efficiency, safety and security
- Covers legislation, HSE recommendations and industry codes (SBD, BREEAM)
- Provide an understanding of the implications of Heat/Chill Loss/Gain at loading bay
- Ensure a solid knowledge base for evaluating available solutions for specific locations
Type:  Seminar
The purpose of this presentation is to learn about a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) design strategy that pairs elevated air speeds with traditional air conditioning. It will help you to understand how the use of ceiling fans can improve thermal comfort and air distribution, reduce condensation, minimize ductwork and result in energy savings. At the end of this presentation, you will be able to:
- Identify the factors that affect thermal comfort
- Explain the use of elevated air speed for increased air distribution, efficiency and energy savings within air conditioned spaces
- Describe the additional design benefits of minimizing ductwork, lowering HVAC first costs, improving ventilation rates and reducing condensation
- Understand stratification and the significant energy saving potential of de-stratifying a large open space
