RIBA CPD Showcase eBulletin

Sustainable architecture

A comprehensive examination of the sustainable aspects of galvanizing, including its carbon footprint, recycling and durability. Also addresses the benefits of using zinc and steel, illustrated using case study examples. The Galvanizers Association (GA) represents the hot dip galvanizing industry of the UK and Ireland and has been providing authoritative information and advice on hot dip galvanizing to users and potential users since it was first established in 1949. Hot dip galvanizing makes a vital contribution to the sustainable growth of the economy, protecting the huge investment made by industry across a wide range of sectors. GA publishes a wide range of technical literature and is on-hand to give an immediate answer to all your technical queries about galvanizing. It was a founder member of the RIBA CPD Providers Network and works closely with the RIBA to provide relevant information for specifiers across all sectors of the construction industry.

Geotextiles in erosion control applications
Online Learning, by Geofabrics Ltd
Closely linked with climate change and flooding, the effects of erosion and land loss regularly feature on our new feeds. This presentation provides an insight into the geosynthetics used to reduce the impact from erosion. Identifying different types of erosion and their – often severe – impacts can only help in our understanding of this dynamic subject.

GEOfabrics manufactures a diverse portfolio of world class geosynthetic solutions for a broad range of civil engineering applications, including drainage, protection, separation, filtration, SUDs and invasive plant root barriers. GEOfabrics’ HPS geotextiles are manufactured from high tenacity virgin polypropylene to a performance specification, rather than weight, thereby ensuring their suitability for their intended application.

Why water controls are key to achieving water and energy efficiencies
Seminar, by Rada
Water scarcity is a global issue, only made worse by the effects of population growth and climate change. Commercial buildings represent a huge opportunity for significant water and energy savings. This seminar explores commercial building design challenges and the key role that water controls can play in improving washroom water and energy use and efficiency.

Rada has been a pioneer in UK washroom controls since the 1930s. As part of the Kohler Co Group, Rada continues to set new standards in water delivery using the latest digital technology, focusing on safety and sustainability. High quality design, and innovations such as non-touch controls, automatic duty flushing, thermal disinfection, and product usage data logging (to aid compliance reporting), all reinforce Rada’s reputation as a valued and trusted brand. Rada keeps end-users safe, prevents waterborne infections and conserves resources.
