Seminar
Considerations for Tile and Stone Installations
This seminar focuses on the practical concerns associated with the design of tile and stone installations, discussing the choices of covering material and how-to best design for client satisfaction and user safety. It will also run you through an overview of the common issues you will encounter with tile and stone installations on a broader level and how to resolve them. It will help you to understand the following topics:
-Understand material and covering selection for tiled applications
- Understand key requirements to good substrate preparation
-Understand movement joints, why, when and how
- Understand waterproofing considerations and specification options
- Understand technical aspects of tile finish and how to avoid slips, trips and falls
- Understand effective and safe transitions between floor coverings
- Understand the importance of cleaning, sealing and maintenance

Seminar
Specifying Solutions for Crack Free Tile and Stone Coverings
This seminar focuses on the stresses from drying shrinkage, deflection and moisture movement in the substrate, as well as thermal and moisture changes that affect the tile finish. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand how to specify appropriate systems to prevent problems with tile finish such as failed seal connections and cracked tiles and joints
- Understand movement joints for tile applications, what, why, when and where movement joints should be located
- Understand uncoupling systems, what, when and where they should be considered

Seminar
Specifying Integrated Underfloor Heating Systems
This seminar provides an overview of the specification of underfloor heating systems. It will help you to understand the following topics.
- The benefits and developments of underfloor heating systems
- The pitfalls with traditional heating systems
- Modern underfloor heating and modular screed systems
- Applications for electrical under-tile heating systems for both floors and walls

Seminar
Specifying Integrated Wetroom and Waterproofing Systems
This CPD is about design and specification considerations for wet room installations. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- How to apply a system approach at the design and specification stage to consider all aspects of wet room installation, including waterproofing, shower build-up, drainage design, profile finishes and under-tile floor heating
- The benefits of available system solutions with matching components which form a fully watertight environment
- The relevant British Standards and Building Regulations and how to select and specify appropriate system solutions for most wet room installations

The Practical Guide to Wetroom Specification
Creating a successful wetroom takes research and preparation, over and above the immediately obvious. The finer details of a project are often overlooked, leading to leaks, cracked tiles and ultimately loss of room use and revenue. This CPD will cover topics including the pros and cons of a wetroom, wetroom failure, the difference between water-resistance and waterproof, standards and regulations and additional considerations when designing a wetroom. By the end of the paper you should have a greater understanding of:
- Whether a wetroom is correct for the application of the end user of the facility
- How wetroom failures are not usually immediately obvious, unlike a sudden occurrence such as a burst pipework, leaks that occur tend to be gradual due to inadequate waterproofing, and how they can go undetected for a good while after they’ve started.
- The key standards such as: PTV rating, Document M, Flow rates, falls to drains, acoustic reduction and electrical zoning
- Key areas which can be over looked when designing a wetroom such as, luxury additions, maintenance, sequencing, listed buildings and end of life considerations

Seminar
Specifying External Applications with Tile and Stone
This seminar provides solutions to common problems and failures in balconies, roof terraces and patio areas. It looks at causes of collapse including inappropriate construction, inadequate waterproofing and blocked drains. It provides guidance on these issues and will enable you to specify appropriate system solutions with confidence. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand and provide definitions of types of balconies, terraces and patio areas
- Understand the common problems associated with balconies, terraces and patio areas
- Understand and identify system solutions and where and how they should be used
- Understand design considerations including movement joints, additional drainage and door thresholds
- Understand product specification of appropriate system solutions to avoid common problems
