New Continuum courses released:
ABIC Commercial Cost Plus Contract
| || In August, the Institute and Master Builders Australia released the new ABIC ‘Commercial Cost Plus 2014’ (CP-2014 C) contract, for commercial projects. This seminar explores the new concepts and key mechanisms of the ABIC CP-2014 C contract and its use for commercial projects and explores some issues relevant to cost plus projects.|
Making Connections I
| ||Like “sustainability”, the term “collaboration” has started to become a catch cry for architects – we hear it all the time but what does it really mean? Making Connections examines projects and practices that generously engage with other ideas, people, environments and situations at a range of scales, to produce unexpected outcomes both formally and culturally. |
The Integrative Design Process- A new approach for sustainable design
|Integrative design is distinguished from conventional design by its use of a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary project team. This presentation by Bill Reed introduces the practical concepts of integrating our technical perspectives with the living system processes that support life on Earth. The beginning of this work in the design and building professions is to start the process of integrating the inter-relationships between subsystems in the building and the natural systems of which the building is part. |
Safety in Design
|This seminar will provide a refresher on the work health and safety legislation in relation to designer responsibilities and discuss how designers can achieve a safe design approach in their projects.|
The focus will include what designers should endeavour to eliminate from the workplace and design innovations which can create productive workplaces free from injury and disease. The seminar will address methods of communicating safe design in documents, plans and reports to ensure that design intent is not lost in the build process.
