FIT Show 2019 Comar RIBA Approved Curtain Walling CPD

We are pleased to announce that Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems has been invited to present our RIBA Approved Seminar “Stand and Deliver:  A Study of Curtain Walling” as part of FIT Show’s Seminar Programme.  As you know RIBA requires that architects who hold RIBA membership must undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules to keep their membership up to date.  As Comar have taken the step of working closely with RIBA to approve the content of this seminar, Architects can claim double CPD points.  This seminar is also part of RIBA’s Core Curriculum. Every day, Comar’s Project Managers present these seminars in architectural practices throughout the country which shows our commitment to training our architectural partners and raising technical competence across the industry.

The seminar broaches the following topics and is a must see for any of our fabricator partners who are involved in the design and installation of curtain walling and aims to cover:

  • The functions and requirements of Curtain Walling and how this influences design
  • The forces acting upon curtain walling and how they are accommodated.
  • Constructing curtain walling systems
  • Building movements relative to curtain walling
  • Drainage of curtain walling
  • Procurement and lead times
  • Safety legislation, Building Regulations and British Standards
