CPD accreditation for Architects and Quantity Surveyors

23 July 2014

Given the recent and still pending regulatory changes and an evolution towards sustainable design, it is crucial for architects to keep up to date with the changes in the market. Over 2 days, the Cape Construction Expo offers highly relevant content for architects active in the Western Cape. The Cape Institute for Architecture, therefore, has assessed and validated this Category One CPD activity. The activity carries 1.5 CPD credits.

Here, Eugene Nourse explains what the event is all about. 

Similarly, quantity surveyors need to stay ahead of market developments to be able to drive projects that are completed on budget and hopefully on time. The Association of South African Quantity Surveyors found that the Cape Construction Expo programme is of value to their membership and has validated this programme as a Category One CPD programme and carries a total of 10 CPD hour credits as allocated for each session.

The Cape Construction Expo will feature a 2-day conference programme which targets aspects that impact the Western Cape construction industry such as compliance, challenges around sustainability and design, and project and business opportunities.  

The event connects the entire construction value chain in the Western Cape to drive an exchange of knowledge and to facilitate networking.

The Cape Construction Expo, taking place 13 – 14 August 2014 at the CTICC, is the only building and construction forum exclusively for the Western Cape. The event offers a networking and knowledge platform and connects the entire construction value chain. Construction professionals such as architects, engineers, contractors, local authorities, government officials, investors and suppliers are attending the annual gathering to expand their knowledge and to experience the latest technologies available to the market place. The event features over 80 exhibitors, 100 conference delegates and 2500 expo visitors who meet to drive business and to explore new opportunities.
