ZERO Carbon Design Series 1-7 (7 Formal CPD Points)

ZERO Carbon Design Series 1-7 (7 Formal CPD Points)

ZERO Carbon Design Series

7 Formal CPD Points
Available On Demand I 12 months expiry

The ZERO Carbon Design series has been developed by Ross Donaldson to accelerate capacity for meeting the challenges brought about by climate change.
It is increasingly accepted that the target for a zero-carbon construction industry must be 2030. Given a number of buildings can take upwards of five years from inception to completion we must be ready to design to zero carbon parameters by 2025. This is going to take an unprecedented re-engineering of our profession.

This seven lecture seminar series provides practical guidelines and case study insights enabling practitioners to start the journey now. Many thanks to Ross Donaldson who initiated this course and managed its development.

Modules worth 1 CPD point each are also available for individual purchase below:

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this 7 part series participants should be able to:

  • Describe what net zero is and articulate a suitable process of achieving net zero practices
  • Identify the fundamental concepts of energy demand optimisation
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how various performance targets can be used to verify good design
  • List ways in which design can contribute to energy efficiency
  • Explain the interaction of building design with the choices made for energy supply to the building
  • Determine how building design in one climactic zone or another might fundamentally alter how you approach the energy solution to it
  • Differentiate the balance of grid, storage and renewable supply between different projects based on their climactic zones

NSCA 2021 Performance Criteria

 

This presentation is equivalent to 1 hour/point of formal CPD and will deliver outcomes related to the following Competencies from the National Standard of Competency for Architects:

PROJECT INITIATION AND CONCEPTUAL DESIGN 
PC 19 Be able to identify, analyse and evaluate client project requirements and objectives using qualitative and quantitative methods and, where required by the terms of engagement, to assist cost estimators in determining project feasibility/viability.
PC 20 Be able to assess project budget and timeframe against project requirements and objectives, relevant legislation, statutory planning requirements, building codes and standards.
PC 21 Be able to apply project budgets, or work with quantity surveyor to establish project budgets, based upon understanding of cost planning, value management and factors influencing project cost relevant to the project type and scale.
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 29 Be able to develop and evaluate design options in terms of the heritage, cultural and community values embodied in the site, and in relation to project requirements.
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 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 39 Be able to integrate the material selection, structural and construction systems established in the conceptual design into the detailed design and documentation 
PC 41 
Be able to coordinate and integrate input from specialists and consultants into the detailed design and 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.
