ZERO SERIES MODULE 01: DESIGN FOR ENERGY DEMAND REDUCTION

ZERO SERIES MODULE 01: DESIGN FOR ENERGY DEMAND REDUCTION
The ZERO Carbon Design series has been developed to help accelerate the capacity for meeting the enormous challenges brought about by climate change. To meet the critical challenge for a zero carbon economy, it is increasingly accepted that the target for a zero carbon construction industry must be 2030. Given a great number of buildings can take upward of five years from inception to completion, this means we must all be ready to designing to zero carbon parameters by 2025.  This is going to take an unprecedented re-engineering of our profession.  The seven lecture seminar series provides practical guidelines and case study insights which will enable practitioners to start the journey now. Some of you are of course already on the journey. The course is presented primarily by engineers and designed to be helpful for small and large practices.

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.
