ZERO SERIES MODULE 03: DESIGN STRATEGIES

ZERO SERIES MODULE 03: DESIGN STRATEGIES

ZERO Carbon Design Series

DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR MINIMISING EMBODIED CARBON I 1 Formal CPD Point
Available On Demand I 12 month expiry


This module provides an overview of Life Cycle Design and why it is important for the low carbon economy and low carbon buildings., offering a demonstration of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a design process – the story of a zero carbon building design. It will also cover LCA in practice (via the software demonstration):

BIM Integration and LCA
Changing your building inputs
Running low carbon design scenarios
This program will also cover functionality and design life as important aspects of low carbon design, and review design strategies (and pitfalls) that typically rate highly in terms of carbon reaction.

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.

COFOUNDER AND CoCEO, PRODUCT MANAGER
eTool LCD

Rich is an engineer with over 20 years of experience in consulting, management and software design. His experience spans multiple sectors including mining, electricity utilities, renewable energy and construction.  He is passionate about the environment and continuous improvement. Growing up on a farm in NSW, Richard spent a lot of time outdoors where he developed a great respect for nature and the environment. His real journey towards co-founding eTool started back in 2008 on a mini expedition across a Canadian icecap.  He saw firsthand the damaging effects of climate change on the glaciers and made a personal promise to dedicate what talents he had to reducing global warming.

Since then, Richard has been the driving force behind software development bringing eToolLCD market and makings sure it is a leader in user experience, availability, accuracy and most importantly low carbon design capability.
