WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED BIM?

BIM has long been a hot topic amongst architects and designers, but what does this mean for roofers and contractors? What influences will it have on your operation over the coming years and what do you need to consider? This is a brief look in to BIM and how it could affect the roofing market and those working within it.

Speaker: Richard Bishop
Category Manager, Wienerberger

RIBA CPD
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REACTION TO FIRE AND FIRE RESISTANCE AND WHY IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND BOTH

It is likely that building elements with equal fire resistance, but including insulation materials with different reaction to fire classification, will behave differently. In this session, Stephen Wise explores the importance of these factors, explains the Euroclass scale of fire ratings, and highlights the impact for building designers and site management processes.

Who this is aimed at: Contractors, Architects, Local Authorities, Developers and Clients

Speaker: Stephen Wise
Technical Development Manager, Knauf

RIBA CPD
A STRUCTURED APPROACH TO ROOF SPECIFICATION AND DESIGN

Our CPD seminar, ‘A structured approach to roof specification and design’ is approved by the RIBA CPD Providers’ Network. This latest seminar seeks to build a useful structure to the roof speci.cation and design process to ensure maximum longevity when specifying roo.ng systems.

Speaker: Ross Finnie
Sales Director, SIG Design Technology

RIBA CPD
JABLITE DYNAMIC ROOF INSULATION – SPECIFYING A HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM FOR COMMERCIAL AND PUBLIC BUILDINGS

Low U-values still imply heat loss from the building. Jablite Dynamic captures this heat and returns it into the building as pre-warmed ventilation, reducing the energy required to maintain the temperature inside the building. It can also help to reduce summer over-heating.

Speaker: Neil Marsden
Product Development Manager, JABLITE

12:15 – 1:15

LIVE DEBATE
SKILLS SHORTAGES & APPRENTICESHIP SCHEMES

Modern design is becoming more complex, balancing the needs of structural security, weather tightness, comfort and fire resistance. All too often there is a divergence of regulation and practice. Is the roofing, cladding and insulation industry doing enough to recruit and train the designers and inspectors of the future?

RIBA CPD
A GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL FLAT ROOFING

This CPD is a generic guidance for the construction management team on achieving zero water ingress on a roofing project. Reviewing system options and different roof types in the new build and refurbishment markets and taking the team through the steps seen as crucial from initial design thorough to post completion and project hand over, which aid in the result of a successful flat roofing project.

Speaker: Cathal Quinn
Director, MOY

2.30 – 3:15

RIBA CPD
FREEFORM STANDING SEAM ROOF DESIGN

Advances in technology have allowed standing seam to be used to create out-of-the-ordinary roof and façade geometry. Analysing the key design considerations and importance of 3D modelling, this seminar will provide an understanding of the key benefits and flexibility of the system, and how it can be integrated into almost any design.

Speaker: Michael Payne
Key Account Manager, BEMO

PRESENTATION
NCTS – DRIVING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR DEVELOPING THE MODERN METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION IN ROOFING SECTOR

RIBA CPD
A GUIDE TO THE ATTACHMENT OF THE BUILDING ENVELOPE

This CPD is focussed on the importance of making the right choice when specifying fasteners for the attachment of the building envelope. It is vital that the correct type of fasteners are considered early on in the design process to ensure the building remains safe and functional throughout its complete design life.

Speaker: Chris Duffy
National Specification Manager, Fixfast

PRESENTATION
HOW COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL BUILDING OWNERS CAN “INSURE” THE PERFORMANCE OF THEIR ROOF ASSEMBLY

FM Approvals are an internationally accredited third party certification body as well as being an EU Notified body and TAB under the CPR. This seminar will look at the importance of assessing the performance of the entire roof assembly (for fire risk, wind uplift and other hazards) rather than simply considering individual component performance. A contrast will be drawn between UK Building Regulations/”CE” marking minimum requirements and why use of property protection insurance industry standards can significantly benefit the building owner.

Speaker: Richard Zammitt
Senior Engineer, FM APPROVALS
