RIBAJ Morning Seminar: 8 Steps to the #PerfectRoof

Thursday 1st October 2015, 09.00 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 specification, design and installation.

Following last year’s successful seminar on roof design we’re delighted to announce the return of the 8 Steps to the #PerfectRoof seminar for 2015.

Hear from top architectural practices on three very different roofing challenges – including a detailed look at BACA Architects Amphibious House (featured on Grand Designs), and MAKE Architects’ Hiscox’s new Headquarters building which is being completed this autumn in York.

The morning seminar will explore the specific and unique challenges in the design of these projects and how specifiers found solutions for them. Find out what products they used and the benefits derived from them.
