Maximising Efficiency with Offsite Methods
Mark Jenkins, Product Manager, Kingspan TEK, Kingspan Insulation

With pressure on to build 300,000 homes a year, and the Government clearly favouring off-site methodologies to help meet demand, what can the industry offer that really fits the bill?

It is not just about speed of build, other issues such as supply chain custody, quality of build, energy efficiency and healthy buildings all come into play. This workshop will explore how offsite technologies such as structural insulated panels (SIPs) can help contractors to deliver cost-effective, highly thermal efficient buildings without compromising on aesthetics.

Flat Roofing Problems and How to Avoid Them
Shaun Lotay, Technical Director, Danosa

Many flat roofing projects are relatively straight forward in their design. Standard detail here, standard detail there, and then on to the next one. Whilst some of us may work on the same type of project all the time, occasionally we all come across details, constructions and/or methods of application that we are not so used to. This seminar aims to run through some of the less common design questions that we receive as a system supplier and provide clear answers and practical methods for ensuring that your flat roof achieves its maximum potential service life.  

During this session you will learn:

1. Why a flat roof should have a fall and what considerations should be made when you remove it.

2. How to specify the appropriate thermal insulation board.

3. Some common design issues and how to proactively avoid them.

4. How to determine whether your structural deck is appropriate.

Are you competent?
Cathie Clarke, CEO, Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA)

The Grenfell Fire disaster and subsequent Dame Judith Hackitt Review exposed a number of failings that lead to this catastrophe and dreadful loss of life. The construction industry needs to take a long hard look at itself and take positive action to change construction culture to one which always requires-and ensures-the best; not just from the quality and performance of products and the appropriateness of specifications, but also of course to the quality of the installation and the appropriate level of post-construction care and maintenance.

Competency is the key; skills, knowledge and understanding the route to competency.

Be a player, not an observer. Learn more about how industry is working to improve competence and culture and be ready for the changes ahead.
