Seminar
How Can Rainscreen Cladding Create Sustainable Value?
The construction industry contributes significantly to climate change, accounting for 40% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. This CPD seeks to educate specifiers on the urgent need to design for a more sustainable future, in light of an ever-increasing shift towards sustainable design. We will cover how rainscreen cladding can add sustainable value at every stage of the building life cycle as well as key industry trends such as decarbonization, net zero, embodied and operational carbon, and EPD certification, and how all of these can be incorporated into design and specification to reduce emissions. We will explore how digital platforms have transformed the industry and explain how the alignment of BIM and VR integrate with sustainable design. specifiers will learn how to select the most sustainable materials and finishes addressing the three pillars of sustainability - environmental, social, and economic - as well as how to meet government and industry commitments.
