Continuous professional development coursesBuilding Envelope CPDs

Seminars where the primary interest is the building envelope - includes refurbishment and visits to the manufacturing site for cladding products.


Building Envelope CPDs

We find ourselves in challenging circumstances, within our communities and across our businesses as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.  So we can continue to provide you with our inhouse CPD service, we are offering a focused range of online CPD webinars for your architectural practice. Our technical advisors are still available by phone or email should you wish to discuss any techncial details.

Primarily aimed at specifiers, and delivered by our experienced team, these free seminars can be booked at any time between 9am and 5pm and last a maximum of 60 minutes. They comprise a presentation followed by a question and answer session.

To arrange an online seminar, for your UK based architectural practice, please select from one of the subjects below. We do ask that there is a minimum of 4 attendees from your practice join the webinar. These will all be delivered via Skype for Business but we can consider other platforms if this will not work for your practice.

Book your online CPD from the below subject matters:

  • Specifying metal clad envelope systems in accordance with ADB2 of the building regulations and the value of large scale system testing
  • RIBA 2030 climate challenge: How steel building envelope solutions contribute
  • Pre-finished steel standing seam systems for roof & wall cladding
  • CDM regulations 2015 and their impact on steel building envelope specification.
