Roofing and cladding fastener systems and door hinge manufacturer, SFS, has launched a new RIBA-approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar programme for building specification professionals, providing the latest technical insights into creating high-quality and safe building envelopes.
Five complementary CPD seminars are now available to book at www.sfsintec.co.uk, which can be delivered at clients’ offices and are worth double points to RIBA-chartered architects. All the seminars are said to provide up-to-the-minute technical information and guidance for designing in longevity, safety, security, legislative compliance and client satisfaction.
With seminar topics including support systems for rainscreen cladding, envelope airtightness and thermal-efficiency, fixing of warm roofs, designing roof safety systems and hinge technology, the CPD seminar programme reportedly utilises a wealth of technical know-how from right across the SFS Group. In the UK, SFS customers also benefit from a specification team which is supported by a technical team and a host of practical resources. These include BIM data for fasteners, ETAs and the unique Project Builder software by Nvelope for achieving the right solution for rainscreen support systems.
Craig Winstanley, senior specification manager at SFS, said: “Our new RIBA-approved CPD seminars encapsulate five key areas in relation to the building envelope in one series for the first time. It’s important to provide clients with long-term assurance, and this requires detailing the fastening systems and door hinges at the design stage – and not leave these essential components to chance. With our guidance, our CPD seminars will help building designers succeed in this highly technical aspect of building design.”
