Contract Administration Workshop, 21 August 2018

Repeated by popular 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. Past sessions have filled within days of being announced.

TPA Workshops - Expression of Interest

Expressions of Interest are invited for the BDAV to repeat our popular Assessor Workshops, which we are happy to organise provided we receive sufficient interest. These half-day workshops, which are for accredited TPAs who use FirstRate5, have been very popular when previously offered. They are presented by Matthew Graham of Graham Energy, a well-regarded industry expert, trainer and mentor in the Nationwide House Energy Scheme. These interactive four-hour workshops assist to instil confidence in assessors that they are correctly utilising the software and technical note. Additionally, participation in this program provides a great opportunity for TPAs to top up your 'Technical' CPD points, in the lead-up to accreditation renewals later this year, as 4 CPD (Technical) points apply.  By expressing interest, this does not bind you attend: it simply gives us an indication of whether or not to proceed to co-ordinate a repeat of this program.
