This presentation is equivalent to 2 hours/points of formal CPD and will deliver outcomes related to the following Competencies from the National Standard of Competency for Architects:
Design: Conceptual Design
3.3 Design response incorporates assessment of the physical location and relevant wider regional, contextual and environmental issues.
Design: Schematic Design
4.6 Investigation and integration of appropriate material selection for the project design.
4.7 Coordination and integration of appropriate environmental systems, including for thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics.
Documentation: Detailed Design
5.3 Evaluation and integration of regulatory requirements.
5.5 Integration of materials and components based upon an understanding of their physical properties.
5.6 Integration of relevant technical services, environmental and transportation systems.
Practice Management and Professional Conduct:
PC 3 Apply principles of project planning, considering implications for Country, environmental sustainability, communities, stakeholders and project costs.
PC 10 Demonstrate understanding of the whole life carbon implications of procurement methods, materials, components and construction systems.
PC 16 Be able to apply risk management and mitigation strategies – including safety in design, project risk, requirement for resilience from the impacts of climate change and appropriate insurances – across architectural services.
Project Initiation and Conceptual Design:
PC 31 Be able to identify, analyse and integrate information relevant to environmental sustainability – such as energy and water consumption, resources depletion, waste, embodied carbon and carbon emissions – over the lifecycle of a project.
PC 24 Be able to prepare and analyse project development options in response to a project brief – its objectives, budget, user intent and built purpose, risk and timeframes, including environmental sustainability considerations.
PC 33 Be able to investigate, coordinate and integrate sustainable environmental systems – including water, thermal, lighting and acoustics – in response to consultants’ advice.
Detailed Design and Construction Documentation:
PC 45 Be able to nominate and integrate quality and performance standards with regard to selected materials, finishes, fittings, components and systems, considering the impact on Country and the environment, and the whole life carbon impact of the project. This includes integrating life cycle assessments and other expertise and advice from consultants."
