Habitat for Humanity Build Day

8.30am-4pm
Muir Ridge Development, 401 Heron Lane, Martinez, CA
Please click here for more information and to register!

It is finally officially underway! No more permit issues or cancellations!! Join us as we help Habitat for Humanity East Bay / Silicon Valley build a home for our local community.

We will be helping with the Muir Ridge development site on Heron Lane in Martinez. It is a 20 home development which began construction on November 20th. This is a great opportunity to see what goes into the building of a home and what the lines on a plan actually become in the field and at the same time make the dream of home ownership possible for a local family.

Also, the hours worked do count toward IDP credit for those working toward their license. No experience is needed and this is open to all so tell your friends, coworkers, and family to join you!

And since this is also occurring on Valentine’s Day, bring your significant other for a great couples build.

2014 IDP Design Competition

IDP500

A program by AIA San Fernando Valley

Registration Due: Monday, December 22, 2014 

Submissions Due: Monday, March 2, 2015

Winners Announced Monday, March 30, 2015

 

Click Here for the application form and program requirements

The competition involves the design of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. Recently, this mission was lost due to fire. A new site has been selected and the AIA San Fernando Valley has worked with the staff of the mission to provide the programmatic requirements. While Survival Outreach Services has served as an emergency stopgap, the loss of the production, donation, residential facilities and half of the vehicles fleet has caused a significant loss of support of the mission’s work with the homeless. This new facility will be enlarged enabling the mission to reduce the homeless population by offering self‐sufficiency, life skills classes and training to the homeless.

Prizes will be rewarded to:

Interns:

1st Place: $1,500.00
2nd Place: $1,000.00
3rd Place: $ 500.00

Students:

1st Place: $ 500.00
2nd Place: $ 300.00
3rd Place: $ 200.00

The competition is open to all NACRB/IDP participants. The project submissions can be from individuals or teams. Credit for IDP hours is available to all participants working with a mentor. Each participant will be responsible for self‐reporting hours as detailed in the IDP Guidelines. A maximum of 300 hours are available. Intern and student submissions will be judged separately.

Ed Roberts Campus, Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects

Universal Design is the concept of designing and creating built environments that are aesthetic and usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, irrespective of age, ability, or status in life.”

On this ADA Day our expert presenters, Jan Garrett and Craig Williams CASp, will take a deep-dive into Universal Design. This will include an in-depth look at creative responses and case studies, such as Berkeley’s universally designed, transit oriented Ed Roberts Campus, among others. The differences between ADA and CBC will also be addressed in detail as will enforceable standards, adherence to these standards, legal case studies/court cases and Title II of the ADA which applies to the operations of State and local governments. Ultimately, attendees will achieve an insight into creative responses to accessible/universal design, an updated understanding of the current standards being enforced and the ways in which the ADA/California law regulate and facilitate ‘accessibility’.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this program, attendees:

  1. Will be able to state at least three differences between the American with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and the California Building Code (CBC).
  2. Will be able to state two differences between Universal Design concepts and California Accessibility requirements.
  3. Will be able to give at least three examples of creative responses to the 2013 California Building Code accessibility requirements.
  4. Will be able to state at least three enforceable standards regarding public accommodations and how the standards should be implemented.

Studying for the ARE? The AIA East Bay can help! We offer ARE Prep Seminars for candidates preparing for the ARE. Classes are grouped so you can take the review session to identify and improve areas of weakness, and then take the exam before studying new topics.

AIA members and allied professionals bring their years of knowledge and experience to an informative review session for those familiar with the basic material covered in each section of the exam. At the end of each class students evaluate the course content and materials, as well as the presenter’s knowledge and presentation skills. This ensures the quality of the program is high from year to year.
