The next topics will be BIM and lighting
The Landscape Institute has recently launched a series of free webinars to help develop your skills and knowledge. The webinars are also a fantastic opportunity to contribute towards your CPD.
The interactive sessions will take place on Thursdays at 1pm; with a 30-minute presentation followed by a 30 minute Q&A. Details of how to register for and log onto our webinars are available on the LI webinars page along with announcements of future webinars.
Upcoming webinars in October cover an invaluable introduction to BIM and the effects of light and lighting on landscape.
8 October – An introduction to BIM
Mike Shilton, product director of Keysoft Solutions and chair of Landscape Institute BIM Group
The UK Government has mandated that Level 2 BIM must be used on all centrally funded construction projects by 2016, including infrastructure and landscape schemes. This means that to work on these projects, design professionals need to be able to collaborate with project teams and central government departments to ensure their technology and processes are BIM compliant. Mike Shilton, Chair of the BIM working group, will present an introduction to BIM, explain how the Landscape Institute is helping the profession prepare for BIM and suggest the next steps you can take.
15 October – The effects of light and lighting on landscape and views
Karl Jones, director and principal landscape architect of Crestwood Environmental; member of the Landscape Institute Technical Committee
This discussion will consider light and lighting in landscape as well as visual impact assessment. The session will cover an introduction to the environmental effects of light and lighting, its relevance to landscape character, views and visual amenity, why it is important, policy in relation to light pollution and dark skies, current and future guidance, undertaking LVIAs for night time effects, and interdisciplinary working.
