- Manchester: 27 February 2024, RIBA Award winning Stoller Hall, Central Manchester
Rockpanel, part of the ROCKWOOL Group, is involved in many projects where non-compliant cladding panels or complete facade systems are being replaced in line with the existing fire safety regulations and building standards. These morning events aim to update specifiers on regulations regarding fire safety for exterior cladding, particularly for use in buildings over certain heights and those used for specific purposes. There will be complimentary tea and coffee plus a buffet lunch and the event will be eligible for CPD points.
The morning will comprise three presentations plus an informal Q&A session.
- Rockpanel’s Tom Uzelac will present the RIBA Approved CPD ‘From Rock to Panel’
- Visiting Professor at the University of Central Lancashire, Professor James Glockling: “Many designs are never realised because they are uninsurable. Designing in of features such as fire safety and resilience will help ensure the necessary insurance is secured and building owners and occupiers are protected from financial adversity.”
- Simon Smith, Director, INC Design Associates. Simon will speak about Merry Hill, one of the largest retail destinations in the UK.
Please join us for what promises to be an enlightening and valuable morning.
