Thur 15 Aug 12pm-2pm

The latest initiative for the Victorian Chapter CPD program - NCC Series - will focus on different parts of the National Construction Code of Australia and other relevant standards. These sessions will continue to be run regularly throughout the year. Sessions scheduled for 2019 will cover aspects of Fire, Access and Sustainable Design.


NCC Series: Fire

Architect / ˈɑːkɪtɛkt / noun / 1. a person who designs structures that don’t fall down

In addition to designing structures we all want to live in, architects were historically responsible for structural engineering, fire safety, town planning and project management. What’s changed? In this 2 hour session, two respected non-architects will explain why it’s important for architects to understand the National Construction Code of Australia, what architects need to know about the code, and how Performance-Based design can be used to support architectural goals.
