LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

DWA Architects are committed to the ongoing support, development and learning of their staff. As such, we have a number of schemes in place to help support this.

LINKS WITH UNIVERSITIES

 

Staff regularly attend training at various universities, which keeps individuals up to date with latest research and technical advances.

Following any training, when required, we also run in-house design workshops to discuss the outcomes of learnings in more detail with the wider design team members.

Universities we have worked with include –

  •  University of Stirling
  •  University of Bangor

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS (CPD)

 

On a weekly basis, we host in-house workshops for our staff, delivered by both internal and external experts. These regular workshops help to ensure our staff are fully up to date with the latest research, legislation and technical knowledge.

Recent CPD topics have included –

1. Guide to Japanese Knotweed, Michael Wiehahn, Invasive Vegetation Management and Treatment

An illustrated presentation with examples covering History and Background, Dispersal and Regeneration, Facts and Myths, Cost Implications and more…

2. Technical review of Light Gauge Steel Framing, Will Fatherley ORCA LGS LTD

An engaging presentation providing in depth information about Light Gage Steel Framing, with a Technical Manager present to address any technical questions

3. Wide Open Spaces, Alfredo DiMeo, SOLARLUX

An explanation of the application of moveable glazed facades in modern building design and how internal and external spaces can be linked.

4. Designing Sustainable Fenestration Systems, Bernard Turgoose, Senior Architectural Systems

With careful design and specification, up to 40 credits of the total 109 available within BREEAM certification for new buildings can be achieved. The Senior ‘Designing Sustainable Fenestration System’ CPD explains where these credits can be obtained and the methodology required.

ONGOING SUPPORT FROM FELLOW PROFESSIONALS 

 

As a multi-disciplinary practice, we encourage our design teams to work together, sharing their knowledge and experiences from each project.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT REVIEWS

 

We conduct formal staff consultation meetings, in the form of Personal Development Reviews (PDRs), which have been designed to help manage the development of each employee. These generally take place every 6 months.
