Axter Ltd


At Axter, we offer a modern and forward-thinking approach to flat roof waterproofing. We imagine a world where flat roofs are used to their full potential - increasing biodiverse habitats, generating electricity, or creating social spaces - the possibilities are endless.

Our vision

We aim to revolutionise the way flat roofs are designed, installed, used, and maintained. Our team of creative and ambitious professionals all work towards our collective vision: to improve the roofscape and transform the world above our heads. We are driven by our passion for technical detail and design, offering a comprehensive service package and a system portfolio renowned for its quality. We think differently and will always offer our honest, expert advice, adding value through sustainable and innovative ideas that minimise risk and maximise potential for you.

Roof Revolution
This Roof Revolution CPD provides an in-depth look at how we can unlock the full potential of our flat roof spaces. The presentation will take participants through the design considerations for Green, Blue, and Photovoltaic rooftop technologies.

To fully optimise the roof, it is important to consider both the surface finishes, and the make-up of the roof system itself, in order to ensure a robust waterproofing solution. The aim is to use the roof as a tool for reducing the energy demand of the building, unlocking the potential for energy generation, increasing biodiversity and enabling better water management.

The CPD will explore the latest technologies and systems that can be used to enhance the performance of roofs, as well as best practices for their installation and maintenance. Participants will have a thorough understanding of how to incorporate sustainable roof solutions into their design projects and the benefits of doing so.

By the end of this CPD seminar, delegates should:

1. Understand the basic concepts of the roof revolution narrative - transforming roofscapes.
2. Know more about Green Roof Technology - what is it, and how does it work.
3. Understand Blue Roof Technology - what is it, and how does it work.
4. Understand Solar Photovoltaic Technology - what is it, and how does it work.
5. Know about fundamental flat roof design considerations.

The Guide to Flat Roof Refurbishment
This CPD will discuss flat roof refurbishment. Topics covered include the importance of roofs, maintaining them and how to proceed when things go wrong, safe roof access strategy and inspection procedure - structure, insulation, waterproofing, and flat roof refurbishment options - repair, overlay or replacing the existing roof covering.

By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- How to design of more dynamic roofs, transforming them into functional, sustainable active spaces that better serving people, their communities and the environment.
- How to safely access a roof, the roof make-up and the logic behind when to repair, overlay and/or completely refurbish a flat roof.
- The legislation governing roof refurbishment, fire Safety and relevant codes of practice.
- How to drive best value, reduce environmental impact, mitigate design and installation risk and indemnify the building owner of any future risk via the insurance backed guarantee scheme.
- The importance of sustainable architecture and using the roof space, turning a passive roof into an active roof.
