Ross Taylor's presentation looks at the legal exposure of Architects to the increasing problem of water related defects in new buildings. Case studies of recent legal cases are reviewed, the causes of the problem analysed and the role of design identified. A back to basics approach to using first principles of water shedding and effective use of old fashioned things like flashings rather than just relying on chemicals is provided. Examples of time-proven good practice design detailing are discussed.
This seminar will develop project planning and project management skills for architects to help them become “project leaders” and contribute to the success of their team, project delivery and sustainability of their practice.
Topics include the project leader’s role in success, financial and resource management, planning for success and managing project risk.

Smallprojects is about a particular way of thinking and the projects that have resulted, grown from the specifics of monsoon Asia and the questions faced by living in dense humidity, strong sun, a gradually developing society, inconsistent building culture, and the tremendous rates of growth and decay that characterise the hot, wet zone.
