Call for Registered Architectural Professionals to participate in the CBE Occupational Teams

10 December, 2018 - 10:47
Call for Registered Architectural Professionals to participate in the CBE Occupational Teams (OT) for Strategic Infrastructure Projects (SIPs)

The Council for Built Environment (CBE), as an Intermediate Body for Professionals and Associate Professionals, intends to accelerate the development of registered built environment professionals.

To achieve this, the CBE has resolved to establish an Occupational Team (OT) for each built environment profession. On behalf of the CBE, SACAP is looking for registered persons to serve on the OT. This OT will visit institutions, capable of providing the training, to determine:

1. Is Planning profession a scarce skill? (SIPs steps 1 to 9)
2. What must be done to address the identified scarce skills? (SIPs steps 10 to 16)
3. What particular skills are needed in state departments and state owned companies to enhance delivery of the project/s? (SIPs steps 17 to 20)
4. How should the steps outlined above be managed?
 

Each OT will consist of four specialists; however, one person may be able to cover more than one area:

1. one (or more persons) who is an expert in the teaching of the foundational knowledge required for the occupation/ profession. This person will probably be an experienced lecturer from a university or university of technology
2. one (or more persons) who is an expert in the practical training required by a learner prior to workplace entry. This person may be from a state-owned company or private company or training centre where high level practical training is in place
3. one (or more) employers and/or unionists who are extremely familiar with the work that must be performed once a person is qualified. These people should come from the different sectors in which the occupation is employed - private sector, local government etc. - to provide requisite and up-to-date insight into what preparation is needed and for what work
4. one person to represent the assessing body, who knows in detail what is expected of a person who is qualified i.e. a person who undertakes a final trade test, undergoes an assessment for a licence test or who applies for professional registration

Requirements to participate in the Occupational Team for SIPs:
1. Registered architectural professionals and in good standing with SACAP.
2. Knowledge of the architectural profession
3. Educational background will be an added advantage.

Statement on passing of Mr Choromanski

30 October, 2018 - 11:00

Late architect, Choromanski, was a pioneer and legend in his time

Johannesburg, 29 October 2018.  Award-winning architect, Rodney Choromanski, may have passed on but his vision, ideas and knowledge will continue to influence current and young architects. This is according to the industry body, the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP), which has joined thousands of professionals in the sector and ordinary South Africans in mourning Choromanki?s life.

The 57-year old Choromanski passed away last Wednesday and was laid to rest at his beloved and iconic Umkhumbane Cultural Museum this weekend. The design won him the Africa Architecture award in 2017.

Speaking on behalf of the sector, SACAP President, Mrs Letsabisa Shongwe said:

?The South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP), its staff and stakeholders are deeply saddened by the passing of award-winning architect, Rodney Choromanski, whose work and ideas have shaped our landscape.  Choromanski was registered with SACAP on 01 September 1995 as a Professional Architect and he was also affiliated with the South African Institute for Architecture (SAIA), the Kwa-Zulu Natal Institute for Architecture (KZIA) and the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). He played an active role in all these structures, ?Mrs Shongwe said.

Choromanski was a dedicated Registered Person who completely adhered to the Council Professional Code of Conduct, Mrs Shongwe said.

?He was a Registered Professional Architect from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) South Africa. Due to his expertise as an architect, he established Choromanski Architects in 1996. His proficiency within the built environment has been valuable in developing skilled, innovative and dynamic designs which led to the success of projects, architectural competitions and earned him awards and professional recognition. His diverse portfolio as a Registered Architect with SACAP has established his recognition both locally and internationally. 

The Council is proud to have been associated with Choromanski as a Registered Professional Architect. In this role as an architect he excelled and his knowledge and vision was invaluable in the architectural profession during his tenure,? Mrs Shongwe added.

Choromanski?s legacy would live on in the City of Durban through his eye-catching designs of iconic structures, including the design of the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal Music School, the Durban University of Technology City Campus Restoration, Tourism KZN offices and the Princess Magogo Stadium.

?We join the thousands of his friends, loved ones, and his family in mourning his passing. However, it is also vital that we celebrate the life of an exceptional architectural professional registered with SACAP. The highest tribute to his death is not grieve but be eternally grateful for the time he spent among us,? SACAP President, Mrs Shongwe, said.
