A SRoof Design CPD image v3tructured Approach to Roof Specification and Design

In the course of delivering our roof design CPD seminars to architects across the UK, we have found that the same questions come up again and again. How do I choose the right roofing system for my project? How can I make sure the system I specify will meet my client’s requirements? Our experienced specification team will take attendees through a step by step process to identifying the correct solution, and introduce a series of roof waterproofing systems including single ply, hot melt, liquids, green roofs and metals. You’ll learn about how to deal with common problems concerning detailing, compatibility and interfaces.

Get the most out of this beautiful material for your clients with some expert advice.
