07/11/19 – Webinar: Climate Change Considerations in Design

The effects of climate change are becoming more and more evident and the construction industry is responsible for a large part of the world’s CO2 emissions, and energy and resource consumption. What is the role of construction industry professionals in making a positive change?

Join us for this webinar, presented by leading sustainability architect and one of the founders of Architects Declare Australia, Caroline Pidcock and informed Risk Manager, Kathryn Budd, examining how construction professionals can respond to climate change and what liability might flow from professionals failing to adapt their practices. Topics to be discussed during the webinar include:

• Relevant considerations for design professionals in relation to climate change;
• Creating better project environments to realise the potential of climate change requirements;
• How does climate change impact upon the standard of care for design professionals; and
• How might a design professional manage the risk of liability for failing to adapt their practices to climate change.
