Single Ply Roofing Association 2018 Conference and Awards

We are delighted that once again SIG Design and Technology  will be sponsoring a live blog of this year’s SPRA conference and awards. The live blog is a gift from SIGD&T to SPRA by Trading Director and former SPRA Chairman Mike Crook. This is the fourth year we have been live blogging the event.

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday 20th June and is entitled

‘Sustaining Single Ply – Challenges and Champions’

The interactive panel sessions are very popular and these will be liberally seasoned with a small group of high quality speakers.

Highlights include:

  • Keynote address by Claudine Blamey, Head of Sustainability & Stewardship at the Crown Estate;
  • An influencing panel session about Sustainability and Specification with speakers from the NBS, UK BIM Alliance and Envirobuild;
  • A presentation about sustainability legislation by Steve Radcliff, MD of Clugston Construction;
  • A panel session about Sustainability in the Workplace with speakers on Health and Wellbeing, Mental Health and Employment law and GDPR, and
  • A presentation by Jim Hooker on the latest SPRA Waste Management research.

In the morning of the event we’ll also be sponsoring a special workshop for attendees entitled ‘Avoid a Crisis – How to be Safe, Sensible and Professional Online’ delivered by Su Butcher of digital consultancy Just Practising. Su will also be live blogging the event and participating in one of the panel sessions.

Full details of the event including agenda are on the Event Page. From there you can access the live blog which is also available in a mobile version here.
