A new sustainable design course will be rolled out across NSW in 2017 and facilitated by some of the state’s most respected names in the green building space. 

Dick Clarke and Andy Marlow of Envirotecture, and David Bennett of Sydney-based architectural and sustainability consulting practice, Six-D Environments will facilitate the four-day ‘Sustainability Design Specialist (SDS) Masterclass’, to be held at various locations throughout the course of the year.

The course has been put together by the Building Designers Association Australia in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Architects, Australian Living and The NSW Government Office of Environment and Heritage, and will cover four modules with a focus on residential design:

  1. Thermal performance
  2. Water and waste water
  3. Energy systems
  4. Good materials

The first of the four-day SDS courses kick off in March at Hornsby and Blacktown, and will be followed by courses at Surry Hills and Kogarah in May, Parramatta and Newcastle in June, and Tamworth and Wollongong in July.

The SDS incurs 24 CPD points with the BDAA and could be considered as a formal CPD activity for architects.
