The RIBA CPD Providers Network is taking a series of seminars on the road to bring the latest thinking in construction technologies and best practise directly to architects around the country.

RIBA London is hosting the last in the RIBA CPD Roadshow series on 29th November at etc.venues Liverpool St – Norton Folgate, Bishopsgate Court, 4-12 Norton Folgate, E1 6DQ. The day will provide architects with a unique opportunity to learn from a wide range of CPD Providers delivering a variety of RIBA-approved CPD seminars all on one day.

In fact, there will be five sessions throughout the day with five seminars per session – totalling 25 different seminars to choose from! The resin flooring manufacturer Flowcrete UK will be one of the CPD Providers at the event, sharing its expertise and experience on decorative seamless resin terrazzo flooring – its possibilities, practicalities and potential.

Richard Yanez, Flowcrete UK’s London Commercial Specification Manager, will be presenting the CPD, entitled Specifying Seamless Resin Terrazzo, from 13:45 – 14:45. During the session, attendees will:

  • Learn the history and origins of terrazzo
  • Discover the characteristics of seamless resin terrazzo flooring and how it compares to terrazzo tiles
  • Understand the specification criteria and the benefits of this popular flooring material
  • Identify appropriate cleaning methods to ensure a prolonged life span
  • Recognise the life cycle costs and cost analysis of seamless resin terrazzo systems

This flooring material allows architects to consider the floor area as one giant canvas on which to create bespoke works of art. Thanks to its paint-by-numbers application method, entirely unique patterns can be applied across the floor area in crisp, glittering colours. Even the light reflective aggregates within the floor can be tailored to achieve the precise shimmer and shine that’s required.

Seamless resin terrazzo flooring has been installed in a number of recent, high-profile developments, including at Hackney Town Hall and Leicester Square Kitchen as well as at many prestigious international projects such as the Benguela Cove wine estate in South Africa, underground stations in Singapore and Johannesburg’s first Starbucks.

Flowcrete UK has been supplying large-scale commercial developments with high-performance resin flooring systems for over three decades. This extensive amount of experience makes it ideally positioned to advise on the best solutions for any flooring project, regardless of its size or challenges.

Flowcrete UK’s seamless resin terrazzo range Mondéco has become a popular choice among architects that need to create highly decorative floor finishes that are able to maintain the desired aesthetic for a long period of time in the face of heavy foot traffic, scuffs, scrapes and spillages on a daily basis.

The resin flooring specialists have recently introduced a rapid curing innovation to the world of terrazzo flooring – Mondéco Rapide. Based on PUMMA technology, Mondéco Rapide brings together the rapid curing power of methyl methacrylate (MMA) with the resilience of polyurethane. Its unique formulation means that Mondéco Rapide reduces the overall installation time associated with epoxy or polyurethane resin terrazzo flooring systems by up to 75 per cent.
