Innovative Facade Solutions using External Wall Insulation
This CPD seminar explains how external wall systems offer a different method of thermally cladding a building whilst enabling complete flexibility of building design. Topics covered include the definition of an external wall insultation (EWI) system, the benefits of insulating externally, important criteria to consider when specifying and aspects to be considered during the design of the scheme. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- How to identify an EWI system by its component parts
- The benefits of an EWI system in comparison to alternative insulation technologies available
- How to match the appropriate solution to the building specification requirement
- Detailing an EWI solution

Achieving Acoustical excellence with suspended ceilings
Acoustical ceiling boards and panel systems aims to advise architects and others that there are alternatives to providing balanced acoustics without having to resort to modular ceilings. Whether the terminology is "seamless" "jointless" or "monolithic" these terms all relate to current thinking when looking at internal linings on building design, without compromising acoustics.
