Specifying Hard Metals: choosing the right product for the project CPD: Information Pack

Approved by the RIBA CPD Provider’s Network ‘Specifying hard metals: choosing the right product for the project’ is the first CPD from SIG Zinc & Copper.

This seminar will equip you with a better understanding of hard metal roofing and cladding systems and the different options available; zinc, copper and stainless steel.  The seminar will also look in-depth at roof and façade systems options and their relevant construction methods.

What will we learn about hard metals?

The new seminar sets out a step by step process to help you arrive at the best solution for your roof or cladding project. We look at the issues to be aware of when specifying hard metals, how to establish the client’s brief and the benefits of using hard metals.

Along the way, we also

  1. Look at why there is potential confusion in the market and the issues you should be aware of when specifying hard metals;
  2. Consider the different façade and joint methods available including engineered façades;
  3. Understand the benefits of using hard metals in your project by offering low maintenance requirements, a high level of durability, excellent sustainability credentials and proven longevity;
  4. Set out a checklist of what you should expect in support from manufacturers, both at a technical stage and on site, and
  5. Provide sources of further information and advice.

The seminar is 60 minutes long including questions, and qualifies for double points on your CPD record.
