A. Proctor Group new RIBA approved CPD seminar – Building Refurbishment

The A. Proctor Group, synonymous with technically advanced thermal, acoustic and membrane solutions for the construction industry, has introduced a RIBA Approved CPD seminar titled “Building Refurbishment, Systems for Retrofit & Conservation.”

Aimed at architects, specifiers and contractors, attendees will receive technical advice from A. Proctor Group technical experts, providing the latest guidance on British and European Standards, compliance with Building Regulations, and learning on how to maximise performance and avoid potential failures.

Building Refurbishment, Systems for Retrofit & Conservation Iain Fairnington, Technical Director, commented,

“This session provides an overview of the factors to consider in refurbishment and conservation projects, including the basics of building physics as related to hygrothermal design. It also provides an overview of the standards, regulations and frameworks involved in designing for retrofit and conservation.”

By the end of the session, attendees will have gained a greater understanding of:

  • The retrofit and conservation considerations
  • Knowledge of hygrothermal material properties and good design practice
  • Introduction to hygrothermal assessment standards
  • Introduction to PAS 2035 design framework
  • Reducing condensation risks in pitched roof refurbishment

The CPD serves the following RIBA Core Curriculum areas

  • Design, construction, and technology
  • Legal, regulatory, and statutory compliance
  • Knowledge level: General Awareness

In summary, Iain Fairnington adds,

“Our CPDs have proved invaluable to professionals involved in the design and construction of buildings. Through the CPD series, we aim to provide technically accurate learning based on best practices, innovation, and project examples to help individuals make informed choices when specifying product solutions for their projects.”
