The principles of building physics and energy-efficient strategies When considering the principles of building physics and climate-responsive design, it is important to focus on how these may impact energy demand, carbon emissions, occupant comfort and well-being. This seminar will highlight important environmental design aspects, which are recommended to be considered during early design stages and will introduce tools which can assist during the design process.    In details, this seminar will look to enhance your knowledge in the following areas:    The energy balance principle and how different building fabric parameters and internal heat gains influence energy demand; including building form, glazing ratios, u-values, g-values and particularly infiltration and ventilation  Thermal comfort assessment methods for mechanically ventilated buildings and the application of adaptive comfort models for naturally ventilated spaces  Climate analysis to identify the effectiveness and potential of different passive design strategies such as thermal mass and natural ventilation  Overheating risk assessments in line with CIBSE TM52 and TM59 methodologies. This is a very important aspect, especially when considering higher summer temperatures and the increase in heat waves frequency  Different natural ventilation strategies, including single-sided, cross-ventilation and stack effect. Aspects related to mechanical ventilation  Visual comfort and daylighting principles including daylight factors, climate-based daylight modelling and circadian daylighting  Outdoor comfort assessments with reference to the Universal Thermal Climate Index and Lawson criteria  Wellbeing: the impact of temperature, humidity, daylighting and indoor air quality on wellbeing, highlighting target design criteria and best practice recommendations     Speaker: Herman Calleja, chapmanbdspHerman is an associate environmental consultant and head of R&D at chapmanbdsp, where he has collaborated with various design teams on residential and non-domestic schemes of different scales with regards to occupant comfort, façade design and low energy strategies. He completed, with distinction, the AA MArch SED programme in 2012, where he currently teaches. Herman has practiced as an architect, is RIBA chartered and a BREEAM accredited professional. He presented to CIBSE YEPG, at PLEA, NCEUB and other conferences. He was on the CIBSE Building Simulation Group 2018 prize winning team and was recently selected for an EU COST collaboration.  Core Curriculum Topics Sustainable architecture Design, construction and technology Business, clients and services Terms and Conditions (PAYG) Cancellations are acceptable in writing up to 10 working days of the event, please contact regional office for cancellation requests  Substitutes are permitted at any time*, please contact regional office for substitution requests  If the RIBA has to postpone or cancel the event the booker is entitled to a full refund of the ticket price only, no compensation will be given for travel costs   We may contact you regarding future CPD events  The RIBA accepts no responsibility for the views or opinions expressed by speakers or any other person at the event  A photographer will cover this event and the images may be used to publicise future RIBA events  By accepting an invitation or purchasing a ticket you consent to being photographed, filmed or recorded as a visitor attending the event.   On entry to the event you agree to accept and abide by any venue rules  The RIBA reserves the right to refuse admission to any ticket holder  The details you provide will be processed in line with the RIBA's GDPR obligations.

  Event Description This particular course is being funded by Wandsworth London Borough council for local businesses in the borough of Wandsworth and for businesses that frequently use these roads. Proof of local road usage may be requested.  The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclist’s and motorcyclists but has a particular focus on cyclists. The course includes a practical ‘on-road’ cycle training element and gives drivers a ‘real life’ experience as to a cyclist’s perspective of riding on London’s roads, as well as in traffic. The training also counts towards the 35 hours DCPC that professional drivers need to complete by September 2014. The course consists of two 3.5 hour modules (both delivered on the same day); the first module is classroom based theory, and the second module, an outdoor practical session where drivers get a cyclists view of the road. Theory Module (3.5 hours)This part of the course focuses on sharing the road safely and highlights the vulnerability of other road users. It also explains how the London streetscape is evolving to encourage more walking and cycling. Subjects covered include:- The driver’s role in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) Urban driving, changing streetscape and route planning Vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists Sharing the road, observation devices and cycle training Collision avoidance and defensive driving Hazard recognition and perception Driver responsibility and attitude Practical Module (3.5 hours)After the initial bicycle control skills training, drivers ride on bikes to areas of potential conflict including junctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines. Subjects covered include:- Introducing active travel, driver fitness and health Giving drivers a cyclist’s perspective of riding on busy roads and an understandingof the issues faced by vulnerable road users Recognising best driving practice around cyclists Practical on road experience at areas of potential driver/cyclist conflict includingjunctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines   CostsProviding you are a FORS registered company the Safe Urban Driving courses are fully funded by the London Borough of Wandsworth so there is no charge for attending the course. All necessary equipment such as bicycles and personal protective equipment is also provided on the day. If it is found your company is not FORS accredited, you may be billed for attendance at £75.00 + vat. If drivers wish to have their details uploaded to the DSA website so its count towards their 35 hours DCPC, then they need to ensure they bring £8.75 cash to cover the upload fee. You will need to notify the trainer on the day. Please note: Lunch, refreshments and travel costs are not included. IMPORTANT: Any driver attending the SUD course must have their identity checked by a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).  This will allow Fleet Source to register the driver onto the Transport for London master SUD database which confirms the driver has attended the course. In order for a driver to be uploaded to the FORS/TfL register and/or be accredited with the Driver CPC hours they must complete the entire course. Generally, the only reasons for not taking part in the cycle element are on medical grounds, or if during the cycle familiarisation session, the driver is risk assessed as not safe to ride a bike on public roads – in these instances it is acceptable for the drivers to walk the course meeting up with the cyclists at the exercise/discussion points and joining in with the discussion All bookings are subject to our Cancellation Policy and by registering for a course you are agreeing to its terms. Click here to read our cancellation policy.
