RIBA CPD Programme – Designing for Flood Resilience, England, UK
1 Mar – 5 Jun 2018
CPD Programme supports architects on ‘Designing for Flood Resilience’
The land, property and environmental data specialist, Landmark Information, is supporting Ed Barsley of The Environmental Design Studio (TEDS) in delivering a brand new seminar as part of The Royal Institute of British Architects’ Core CPD programme. ‘Designing for Flood Resilience’ provides guidance to architects and designers, while exploring techniques for understanding flood risk contexts, and flood resistance and resilience strategies.
The seminar series is being held in 12 locations across the UK during the course of the year, including:
28 March – Exeter
10 May – Chelmsford
17 May & 5 June – London
Landmark is supporting the seminar by providing environmental data insights, as well as consultancy advice and best practice from its in-house environmental consultancy team, Argyll Environmental.
Confirms Paul Blewett, Head of Sales at Landmark Information: “Designing our future communities so they are prepared for flood events is something that architects and designers are all greatly aware of, particularly given the high number of extreme flood events we have experienced over recent years. Ed Barsley will be delivering a highly informative seminar that introduces the key principles of designing for resilience, and we are delighted to be supporting the programme with data insights and environmental intelligence.”
The seminar will discuss the various types of flooding that can occur and explains the range of tools and techniques available for understanding flood risk contexts. Strategies for adaptation and resilience are discussed at the catchment, community and building scale in relation to both new and existing buildings. Using case studies and worked examples, Ed will also explain how these techniques may be effectively applied.
Ed is a specialist in environmental design in architecture with a particular interest on developing strategies to reduce flood risk and increase resilience in the built environment. As part of his role at TEDS, he is a special advisor on flood risk to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industry Strategy, in addition to work he is currently doing to develop a methodology for assessing flood resilience of existing communities, as part of a PhD in Architecture at the University of Cambridge.
The comprehensive sessions will include:
• Flood risk contexts: impacts at the global, national and community scale
• Types of flooding: the causes, impacts and relevant strategies
• Tools and techniques for understanding flood risk and resilience: key principles and resources available
• Flood risk management: traditional and contemporary approaches, both inland and coastal
• Community level strategies: Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), street level strategies
• Building level strategies: resistance and resilience measures for both new build and existing buildings
• Reflections on the pathway to a resilient future: opportunities and barriers to change

Now is the time for those providing solutions to the custom and self build market to position themselves and engage with potential customers.

The exhibition covers:
-the whole spectrum of the latest developments in the field of house-building: construction of all types of luxury real estate, “smart houses”, urban multi-storey buildings, boat-houses, wooden, frame, stone, marble, glass, seismic resistant, glued and rounded beam houses, etc.

The high number of financially wealthy visitors of the Forum from the richest European countries will provide you an opportunity to realize you product on quite favourable terms. Organizing the Forum at the French Riviera during the most popular time for tourist attraction (More than 10 million people visit the resort annually) will also become an advantage of this event.
Among the participants of the Forum are world leading French, Swiss, and other European banks and insurance companies. Representatives of the financial companies will offer favorable mortgage lending conditions for acquiring the presented at the Forum estate and other products. The visitors, who require financial funds, will not have to look for a bank to submit a set of necessary documents and wait unknown amount of time for review of the application. It will be possible to resolve all lending issues within the framework of the event, which significantly shortens the time of making order of the house construction presented at the exposition.
Within the framework of the event there will be tenders for the most quickly constructed and solid construction of residential buildings, multi-storey buildings, public amenity objects as well road construction and restoration projects of cultural and historical heritage monuments. Winners will be awarded construction and contracting works contracts to restore territories of Syria, Iraq, Libya, Donbass destroyed by military actions and suffered from natural disasters (flood, wood fire, earthquake).
The project will be financed by the relevant structures, the UN (UNESKO), the EU, international charities, states involved in the military conflict and well-known commercial structures from around the world. The estimated investment fund is more than 10 000 000 000 euro. Participation in the Forum will provide you with a unique opportunity to become a winner of the contest which will help you, in case of victory, guaranteed profit for a long time.
At the end of the event, near the roadway, within 10 km from the venue of the Forum, in an area of 2,000 square meters, will be created a permanent show room where, for the exhibitors’ request, will be assembled houses represented at the Forum for the further work in promoting their products. That will allow you to reduce logistic costs significantly. Advantageous location on the territory of one of the wealthiest countries in Europe as well as high tourist activity during the year could bring you a sustainable income.

International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference 2018
3-5 Jun 2018
The International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (ITEAC) is delighted that TAIT Stage Technologies is the major Sponsor of the 2018 conference, taking place in London, UK next year, 3-5 June.
TAIT Stage Technologies’ continued support of ITEAC by taking the principal sponsorship role for the fourth consecutive conference – having been one of the founder sponsors of the initial event in 2002 – illustrates the tremendous reputation that ITEAC has established over the last sixteen years.
The presentation of ITEAC 2018 – Places for Performance: New Directions, recognises not only the demand for this major event – which seeks to investigate the developments that have already been made, and the innovations that will be required, in the ever-changing world of live entertainment – but also the need of those who design buildings for the performing arts and supply the production technology within them, to gather at this leading and learned event, alongside creators and end-users.
The quadrennial three-day event will take place on Sunday 3 June, Monday 4 June and Tuesday 5 June 2018 at Savoy Place, the Global Engineering Hub of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Situated in the heart of London on the north bank of the River Thames, overlooking the National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall and close to the historic Savoy Theatre, the Savoy Place venue, with its impressive views, offers a most appropriate location for ITEAC.
A Call for Sessions has already been issued to those involved in the planning, design, construction, specification and operation of places of entertainment, as well as to writers, designers, performers, producers and production teams. Submissions may still be sent to David Staples, Chairman of the Editorial Board, via this dedicated email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Presented by the Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT), ITEAC 2018 will be the fifth edition of the Conference. Conceived in 2002 by the late renowned stage engineer and ABTT Fellow, Richard Brett, the event has grown from strength to strength, with TAIT Stage Technologies’ involvement having been integral to its success.
ABTT Chief Executive, Robin Townley, commented, “The commitment to supporting ITEAC 2018 that TAIT Stage Technologies have so generously made, is hugely important to allowing the next edition to be presented.
For TAIT Stage Technologies to continue its support of the conference, for the fourth time as Founder Sponsor, underlines their commitment to sustaining the industry. The value they place in the power of an international forum to drive their sector forward and their commitment to supporting the ITEAC conferences, underlines the benefits they consider the event has both for their own teams and for the industry at large.”
He went on to say, “Having established itself as a “must attend” event for so many areas and participants in the creation, execution, design and management of theatrical presentation, the next edition, ITEAC 2018 – Places for Performance: New Directions, has been much anticipated by those engaged in the planning, design, construction, equipping, operation and management of performance spaces of every type – from the stadium and arena, the opera house and receiving theatre, to the school and community venue.
ITEAC 2018 will offer a unique opportunity for the specialists that make up our industry to hear from the makers, creators and producers of performance. It will bring together the world’s leading theatre technicians, architects, engineers, consultants, acousticians and production managers, as well as theatre makers and venue managers, to participate in the most exciting and stimulating investigation of the very particular mix of art and science, craft and technology, illusion and engineering, that we are required to provide.”
All parties are invited to register their interest in attending, speaking or sponsoring the Conference, via the ITEAC website: www.iteac.co.uk
