Moral Rights, Copyright and Attribution: BDAV CPD Webinar, 27 November 2018

One of the areas about which Members most frequently seek advice from the BDAV is on copyright and attribution. The BDAV's next CPD webinar on Tuesday, 27 November 2018 will deal with Moral Rights, Copyright and Attribution. This important webinar for design professionals will be presented by two solicitors from boutique commercial law firm, Sinclair + May, one of whom has extensive experience with the building and construction industry. Even if you think you know 'everything' about copyright and attribution, this is an important session not to be missed.

BDAV CPD Seminar:  Passive House,  19 November 2018

Our final seminar for 2018 will deal with Passive House, a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in buildings, which reduces the buildings' ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. In this presentation, we hope to present an unbiased understanding of what Passive House offers, including case studies. Speaking at the seminar will be BDAV Member, Luke Middleton, from EME Design, who is very passionate about all things sustainable, including Passive House. His 'Passive Butterfly' project, which uses a passive design approach to ensure vastly improved comfort and super-efficient thermal performance, was recently named 'Best of the Best' in this year's Sustainability Awards organised by Architecture and Design. Also speaking at the seminar will be Clare Parry, one of Australia's first - and highly regarded - specialists in passive house, who is one of the first certified Passive House designers in Australia.

BDAV Contract Administration Course, 21 November 2018

Repeat by demand, this excellent BDAV program aims to assist building designers to develop the knowledge and skills to manage and administer standard form building contracts and to develop administrative and reporting systems to manage a building contract on behalf of a client. The course will also enable participants to confidently offer Contract Administration as another service within their practice. Presented by Geoff Hoare, a Past President and Life Member of BDAV, whose presentations are always highly praised.
