CPD Material (3)

Agglomerates and their Applications
This CPD-accredited seminar focuses on an interior and exterior finishing material that is widely employed in the built environment, yet the precise technical characteristics and properties of which are less well understood.
Aimed primarily at architects, interior designers, builders and specifiers, the presentation begins by comparing agglomerates with mainstream hard surfaces like engineered and natural stone, then looks at the distinctive manufacturing process and construction, which give rise to outstanding technical and mechanical characteristics.
These properties translate into a number of installation benefits, which should be of interest to all those considering specifying the material or employing it in a different direction.

The seminar also explores the sustainability of agglomerates, arising from the efficient production process and the extensive use of recycled materials.

Sustainability in Agglomerates and Glass Mosaic
This CPD-accredited seminar is enticing and pragmatic! We focus on the future of construction and sustainable building. There will be quotes from Sir Norman Foster, thought provoking facts, information about embodied energy, green purchasing, environmental certification and the use of different materials.
We also look at Sustainability in glass, agglomerates and mosaics. With internal finishing being around 10% of total building costs, this is of great importance. Also looking towards remodelling, or refurbishment projects where core structure is retained.
