Specifying Rigid Full Fill Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity wall construction is one of the most common build methods. Whilst the fundamentals have not changed, the way we design and build cavity walls has evolved as construction methods change and performance targets increase.

This CPD presentation looks at the evolution of cavity wall construction and provides insights in to understanding thermal conductivity values, design considerations and relevant regulations and approvals.

By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The evolution of cavity wall construction.
- Thermal conductivity values.
- Typical installation solutions.
- Relevant regulations and approvals.
- Design considerations.

Reducing the Performance Gap through Fabric First
Creating thermally efficient buildings is critical. All too often buildings are created and there is a performance gap - the difference between as designed and as built. This presentation looks at the performance gap and why it exists and the impact. It looks at how it can be addressed with a fabric first approach and what the benefits of continuous insulation and calculated construction details are. It also looks at understanding the impact of thermal bridging and improving airtightness.

Single Layer Insulation Systems - The Future of Tapered Roofing
The design of flat roofs is critical to prevent water ingress. Tapered insulation is designed to provide the desired thermal performance as well as create a fall. This ensures adequate drainage to prevent ponding of water.

This seminar covers:
-Understand what tapered insulation is
-Understand what insulation materials can be used to create a tapered roof system
-Learn about how to draw a scheme
-Learn about how on site support can assist
-Look at design considerations

This presentation looks at the the design and manufacture of single layer tapered roof insulation systems and provides insights in to understanding how to draw a scheme and what on site support can be expected. It also looks at design considerations and relevant regulations and approvals.
