The CPD focuses on the importance of air and wind-tightness in low-energy building design. It discusses the importance of external and internal membranes and their sealing, and highlights best practice on how to specify and install relevant products and components. It also focuses on the risks associated with airtight buildings, and how best to overcome these.
Highlights of the CPD include:
- Correct product choice for specific scenarios
- Correct detailing and specification for optimum results
- How to determine where an airtight layer should be
- How to specify correct components for varying scenarios
- Airtight principles and associated risks
Partel’s ‘Best Practice for Air and Windtight Structures’ RIBA CPD will be held online for the rest of 2020 via Microsoft Teams. This is a unique opportunity for architects, engineers, and construction and design professionals to gain up-to-date knowledge on a range of innovative products and techniques, earn CPD points, and enhance their personal proficiency in airtightness. Being a RIBA approved CPD, attendees can also earn up to eight CPD points.
