Ask the Experts on Roof Design and Specification

Next week we’ll be hosting the first Architecture Today Technical Seminar at the Building Centre in Store Street. We’ve had a great response already but there’s still time to register and talk to us about roof design and specification. This article will tell you what to expect and how to book your place.

The technical seminar is taking place on the morning of Thursday 18th January, commencing with refreshments and a light breakfast at 9am.

The SIG Design and Technology team is fielding some of their top specialists in new build and refurbishment flat roofing and natural slate roofing including Sales Director Ross Finnie and RMI specialist Ian Dryden.

We’ll kick off at 9.30am with some quick-fire presentations on:

  • Which Flat roofing Solution?
  • Specifying and correctly installing the right insulation on flat roofing projects
  • Flat roof waterproofing solutions for education buildings
  • Upstands best practice for BS 6229:2018
  • Slate roof design best practice
  • Roofing guarantees – what kind of cover you need

The aim of these presentations is to give you a flavour of some of the topics you might like to talk to our specialists at the Roofing Clinic tables for the rest of the morning. SIG Design and Technology provide accurate, agnostic advice to hundreds of architects, and on Thursday our technical expertise will be at your disposal.

The interactive Roofing Clinics will give you the chance to discuss your topics with the experts. Bring a specific project if you like, or just your questions.

You might want to ask about a specific challenge such as flat thresholds and disabled access onto a roof terrace, you might have a burning question about which slate is suitable for your project or how to calculate headlaps, coverage or sort out challenging eaves details. Or perhaps you have a question about fire testing. Now’s your chance to speak direct to the experts.

The Roofing Clinics will run until 12.15 when we’ll break for lunch and drinks and to continue the conversation.

The Roof Design and Specification Technical Seminar is free to attend, and we can guarantee you’ll learn something.
