Seminar
Going Through the Roof: Key Considerations for Specifiers Around the Issue of Roof Penetrations
This CPD provides attendees with a specific insight into the issues surrounding roof level service penetrations. Attendees will be guided through the key considerations relating to maintaining the integrity of the all-important weathering layer where ducts, pipes and cables exit the riser on to the roof. The session will identify the methods and protocols that are essential for the effective and durable execution of this often-challenging detail. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the evolution of the flat roof and how roof constructions have changed
- Understand the utilisation of the roof area, how we use roofs today
- Understand the key considerations when designing roof penetrations
- Understand the pitfalls of a reactive approach
- Understand the benefits of a proactive, collaborative approach
- Understand the science of effective weathering
- Understand the benefits of a proprietary system
