RIBAJ Morning Seminar: 8 Steps to the #PerfectRoof

Wednesday 22 October 2014, 08.50 to 11.30am
The Building Centre, Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

Join us at this free-to-attend RIBA Journal and SIG Design & Technology morning briefing as we explore the differing techniques in contemporary roof design and installation.

Hear from three top architectural practices on three very different roofing challenges – from green roofing a subterranean home in Devon, through to zinc cladding an office block at Imperial Tobacco’s HQ Bristol, finishing with hot melt flat roof for UBS bank’s new premises at 5 Broadgate in the heart of the City of London.

Learn what the specific and unique challenges in design were and how specifiers circumnavigated them. Find out what products they used and the benefits derived from them. Also, hear from experts at SIG as they guide you through the maze of roofing design and system selection and outline the 8 steps to achieving the perfect roof.
