CEPT Summer School 2024 at India House

"The greatest gift we can gift a student is the knowledge that they will always be students."

CCBA Designs is more than just an architectural firm that creates timeless structures; it is deeply committed to the education of future architects. Following in the footsteps of our founder, Prof. Christopher Charles Benninger, our directors strongly believe in the importance of teaching and learning from the younger generation. This dedication to education is woven into the fabric of our organization. Through courses, workshops, and collaborative projects, we actively engage with students, fostering a rich exchange of knowledge and ideas.

Our commitment towards education ensures that we not only shape spaces but also nurture the minds that will design the future.

In light of the above, our Director Mr. Rahul Sathe conducted a course as a visiting faculty for the CEPT Summer Winter School 2024. About the course: Course: The Architect’s Prescription -Specifications, BOQ’s and Estimates

Duration: 7 days

Location: India House, Pune, Maharashtra

Similar to how doctors prescribe medicines, architects prescribe specifications and details for construction. These prescriptions are in the form of detailed drawings, spec sheets, BOQs and tender documents.

 The structured schedule provided a comprehensive overview of the various stages of architectural planning and execution. A site visit to our ongoing project, 'College of Engineering Pune', offered students practical exposure. This hands-on experience was invaluable in connecting theoretical knowledge with real-world application.

The lectures are mapped below;

1. Lecture 1: Introduction Session

2. Lectire 2: Design Process

3. Lecture 3: Project Facts and Figures

4. Lecture 4: Pretender Stage of Work

5. Lecture 5: Professional Practice

6. Lecture 6: Architect's Prescription

It was such an invigorating experience for all of us to have students from such diverse backgrounds at India House. These interactions not only benefited the students but also enriched our own practice, fostering a culture of continuous learning and growth.   By integrating educational initiatives into our professional practice, we uphold a tradition of excellence and innovation that defines who we are.
