BAL has launched three new RIBA-approved CPD Seminars for architects, specifiers and contractors.
The CPDs, entitled ‘Tiling to Internal Walls with Large Format Tiles’, ‘Tiling to Swimming Pools’ and ‘Tiling in Wet Rooms’ provide attendees with up-to-date technical information, highlight British and European Standards and provide guidance on problem solving solutions and how to avoid potential failures.
‘Tiling to Internal Walls and Large Format Tiles’ aims to inform and educate about the key issues in choosing and installing large format tiles and panels, helping the audience to gain confidence in specifying these in any project. Key topics include design considerations, best practice, H&S considerations, adhesive and grout selection, joint widths and movement joints.
‘Tiling to Wet Rooms’ navigates the various elements of wet rooms and shower design by looking at key practical steps including potential issues, designing the rooms, solutions to common issues, identifying waterproofing products and systems that work together. It aims to provide a step-by-step guide to avoid problems associated with wet areas including leakage, inadequate waterproofing and poor installation methods.
The third and final new CPD – ‘Tiling to Swimming Pools’ provides an in-depth discussion on types of swimming pool, design considerations, screeds and renders, tile types, adhesive and grout selection and movement joints, as well as information on pool chemistry and pool filling and emptying, taking into account British and European standards and current codes of practice drawn from key industry bodies.
Stuart Ross, Head of Specifications at BAL, says: “The three new CPDs increase our portfolio to eight seminars, each focusing on a different element of tiling and tiling design solutions and created specifically with architects in mind to fulfil their annual CPD requirements.
“Lasting no more than 45 minutes, each CPD helps bring architects and specifiers up-to-date with the latest technical information and standards to ensure they specify the correct products for their tiling installations – whether these are large commercial or small domestic projects.”
Other RIBA-approved CPD seminars on the BAL range include: External Tiling Solutions for Balconies and Terraces, Floor Tiling Solutions for the Modern Build, Tiling Solutions for Heavily Trafficked Areas, Tiling Solutions for Leisure Centre, and Specifying Natural Stone.
