HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATIONS IN CONSTRUCTION AND HOW IT AFFECTS ARCHITECTURAL PROFESSIONALS

SATURDAY 28 AUGUST 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of construction health and safety legislation, with a focus on the requirements of The Construction Regulations 2014 as published in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act  (Professional Competency: Office Practice, Legal Aspects, and Ethics).

Construction Health and Safety (H&S) has long been the focus of attention of many industry stakeholders and role players in South Africa, and while it is acknowledged that many industry associations and professional societies, contracting organisations, and others have made significant efforts to improve H&S within the construction industry, overall construction H&S is not improving commensurately.
 
Notably, construction continues to contribute a disproportionate number of fatalities and injuries relative to other industrial sectors, and there continue to be high levels of non-compliance with H&S legislation generally, and specifically the construction and other H&S Regulations in South Africa. Improving Health and Safety in the construction industry, therefore, continues to remain a priority.

This workshop will expose the architectural professional to the Construction Regulations 2014 - with emphasis on the roles and duties of the designer (architectural professional) and the owner.

​​​​​​​​​DURATION AND CPD:

 

The virtual workshop is an one (1) day workshop that will start at 09:00 and end at approximately 15:30.

 

It is validated for 1.5 CPD Category 1 credits for SACAP registered professionals.

WATER RETICULATION AND USAGE IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

MONDAY 06 SEPTEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of water reticulation systems and usage in residential buildings (Professional Competency: Architectural Design; Environmental Relationships; Building Services and related Technologies).

 

Water is the cornerstone of civilisation. From the great cisterns of the Indus Valley civilisation to the London ringmain, the supply of water is an essential part of human existence.

 

Likewise, the wise use of water is at the centre of the world’s religions and has cultural significance worldwide. But for the past couple of centuries, humans have started to take water management for granted. We have considered ourselves to be masters of the environment, able to turn the direction of rivers and to build cities in the desert. This arrogance has led to failures that have demonstrated that we must live within our natural means.

The real answer to our future water needs lies not in grandiose schemes but in sustainable consumption in our homes and offices. We need to look at the clever use of technology and social science to maximise and optimise the use of existing supplies of water.

As designers of buildings, we have to understand the basics of water reticulation and usage in buildings. We have the codes (SANS10252-1 and SANS3088) that we have to comply with but do we really understand the principles behind it?

 

Knowing the  SANS Codes will let us satisfy regulatory requirements. In this workshop, we are going beyond the regulatory requirements by exploring the reasons behind these requirements based on other international codes, publications etc.

THE BASICS OF

CEMENT AND CONCRETE

WEDNESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of the use of cement and concrete in construction (Professional Competency: Construction Technology).

 

Concrete is the most commonly used man-made material on earth. It is an important construction material used extensively in buildings, bridges, roads, and dams. Its uses range from structural applications to paviours, kerbs, pipes, and drains.

Concrete is a composite material, consisting mainly of Portland cement, water, and aggregate (gravel, sand or rock). When these materials are mixed together, they form a workable paste which then gradually hardens over time.

Lack of knowledge of the properties of cement, and therefore also concrete, still leads to many failures in construction. In this workshop, the following will be discussed:

  • The history of cement

  • What is cement

  • Hydration

  • What is concrete

  • Properties of concrete

  • The need to cure concrete

  • Types of concrete

  • Concrete mixes

  • Different types of structural concrete

  • Typical failures and how to avoid them

  • Specifications on drawings etc

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Construction Technology).

 

Several types of masonry units are available to be used in the construction industry today. In this workshop, the focus will be mainly on the different properties of two types of masonry units, burned clay, and concrete.

Although they might have perhaps the same modular dimensions, they do differ regarding how they react to moisture, heat, etc.

The workshop will address all aspects of the two types of masonry units, from the raw material composition, embedded energy, different reactions to moisture and heat, and durability.

Further, aspects like correct specification and adherence to codes and regulations will also be addressed.

MESOAMERICAN ARCHITECTURE

MONDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural Design, Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

 

Mesoamerican architecture is the set of architectural traditions produced by pre-Columbian cultures and civilizations of Mesoamerica, traditions which are best known in the form of public, ceremonial and urban monumental buildings and structures. The distinctive features of Mesoamerican architecture encompass a number of different regional and historical styles, which however are significantly interrelated.

 

These styles developed throughout the different phases of Mesoamerican history as a result of the intensive cultural exchange between the different cultures of the Mesoamerican culture area through thousands of years. Mesoamerican architecture is mostly noted for its pyramids, which are the largest such structures outside of Ancient Egypt.

One interesting and widely researched topic is the relation between cosmovision, religion, geography, and architecture in Mesoamerica. Much seems to suggest that many traits of Mesoamerican architecture were governed by religious and mythological ideas. For example, the layout of most Mesoamerican cities seem to be influenced by the cardinal directions and their mythological and symbolic meanings in Mesoamerican culture.

Another part of Mesoamerican architecture is its iconography. The monumental architecture of Mesoamerica was decorated with images of religious and cultural significance, and also in many cases with writing in some of the Mesoamerican writing systems. Iconographic decorations and texts on buildings are important contributors to the overall current knowledge of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican society, history and religion.

This workshop will provide information about the architecture of the Inca, Maya and Aztec.

THE LANGUAGE OF SPACE

TUESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural design (Professional Competency: Architectural Design).

 

Not all behaviour in space involves conversation, but much of our behaviour in space involves communication in some way or other. If
the truth was told, throughout our lives, we probably communicate far more through space than we do with formal language.

 

When we walk into a room, others are reading this spatial language long before we speak. What we wear, how we smell, the manner of our walk, our facial expression, where we choose to sit, the way other people look at us and acknowledge us.


We use the language of space, then, for many purposes. Through it
we can express both our individuality and our solidarity with others. We can indicate our values and lifestyles, allegiances and dislikes. We can use it to help generate feelings of excitement or calm. We can communicate our willingness or otherwise to be approached, interrupted, greeted and engaged in social intercourse. We can control the proximity of others. We can demonstrate our dominance or submission and our status in society. We can use it to bring people together or keep them apart. We can use it to convey complex collections of rules of acceptable behaviour. We can also use it on occasion to signal our intention to break those rules!

This workshop will explore

  • Space as language

  • Space and the human dimension

  • Mechanisms of perceiving space

  • Ways of perceiving space

  • Space and distance

  • Proxemics

  • The territory

  • Space and time

  • Recording space

MONDAY 04 OCTOBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural History, Theory and Precedent).

 

Why are we interested in Victorian architecture?

 

Being so unlike any other architecture that there ever was, it is fascinating in itself. It is far enough from us to belong to a world utterly unlike our own. It is near enough to us to be all around us every day, and also to be, as it were, the womb from which we have come.


Why did Victorian architecture exist at all? A difficult question to answer. A virile nation, with a rising population, had to build somehow and somewhere, but why in that particular form - alternately so beautiful and so grotesque? The answer is complex.

 

This workshop will attempt to give the attendee at least a tentative answer.

THE STORY OF

POST-MODERNISM

 

TUESDAY 05 OCTOBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

What is a typical Post-Modern building? One that is hybrid, one that dramatises the mixture of opposing periods – the past, present and future – to create a miniature ‘time city.

 

Hence it is based on multiple codes, combining Modern universal technology and local culture, in a recognisable ‘double coding, its characteristic style.

 

The typical Post-Modern building speaks on several levels at once, to high and low culture, and acknowledges the global situation where no single culture can speak for the entire world. Heightened communication is thus a goal, conveying heightened consciousness of our plural situation.

Charles Jencks is one of the most authoritative authors on Post Modern Architecture. Making use of several of his publications, the what and the how of Post Modernism will be discussed in detail in this workshop.
