Upcoming Open CPD's
Join us on one of our regular virtual open CPD's
Live CPD Presentation | Coach
14 July, 12:00 – 13:00
More than 25 years’ experience of working with architects and builders has given us deep insight into what the market wants – and what helps specifiers get the results they are looking for. Our unique online tool, COACH, was born out of a desire to make compliant balcony design as simple as possible across the world.
COACH is the latest enhancement to CABS our Computer Aided Balcony Specifier, and the complete new suite was launched in December 2020.
COACH in the future will enable auto pricing for balcony project, BIM outputs, streamline the design process including structural calculations and outputting designs for manufacturing machine processes. This vision for COACH also includes quality control processes throughout the platform, ensuring accurate balcony design and manufacture.
Live CPD Presentation | Balconies Made Rigid, Ready & Right
04 August, 12:00 – 13:00
With the absence of a balcony specific standard, yet a host of different organizations stipulating a range of requirements, balcony design has often been a minefield. We have extensively explored the thousands of pages of regulations, and add our findings from expansive testing to bring to you a clear understandable presentation in which we explore the requirements that need to be met as well as innovative solutions.
Live CPD Presentation | Fires on Balconies Learn from the past, an approach to the future
15 September, 12:00 – 13:00
We have explored the balcony fires that have occurred since the Grenfell disaster and the extensive regulation and advice that has been issued. We bring our research to you in a comprehendible CPD that takes you on a journey through the numerous balcony fires that occurred in the past 3 years, the history of balconies, laminate glass and the combustible cladding ban. We then look into the future to see what action each individual can take in the industry to reduce the fire risk and improve balcony design.
Live CPD Presentation, Construction’s Carbon Dilemma
16 June, 12:00 - 13:00
The environment we are facing today means that the way we see homes, and the role they play in our everyday lives, is forever changing.
Sustainability and climate change continue to be key topics within the construction industry globally. The UK Government has set out to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050. It is estimated that 25% of carbon emissions come from homes and a further 17% from non-domestic buildings, so a decision was been made to improve energy efficiency in every household.
