Presentations in your office - Architecture

Free technical presentations tailored to your needs and delivered in your office.

AR1: Thermal performance - Part L1a and The Code for Sustainable Homes - solutions

Introduction to latest and future legislation; Part L1A (2010 - 2016 and beyond) and The Code for Sustainable Homes; air leakage; thermal bridging; building orientation; thermal mass and U-values for external walls; meeting the mandatory energy/CO2 requirements with masonry and concrete solutions.

AR2: Energy efficient homes - case studies

Exploration of residential developments built to meet high energy performance targets including Zero Carbon Homes; PassivHaus; and the Code for Sustainable Homes. Examples illustrate a range of masonry and concrete construction solutions.

AR3: Architectural precast solutions

Design possibilities of architectural precast concrete cladding; finishes available; colours and textures; innovations including ultra-high strength concrete; translucent concrete; and geotextile formed concrete.

AR7: Guide to concrete floors

Different systems available and their performance benefits, including: in-situ; precast; flat slab; prestressed; void-in-floor; innovative systems; screeds; Robust Standard floor details; and Approved Document Part E.

AR12: Exposed concrete of internal and external floors

Design and specification guidance for expose concrete floor surfaces internally and externally. Includes range of techniques for finishing, texture and colour.

CT1: Achieving in-situ visual concrete

A practical solution to understanding the natural materials and methods that make concrete; how to produce a specification using BS 8500, the National Structural Concrete Specification edition 4 (NSCS4) and BS EN 13670; selection of materials and formwork; the importance of falsework design; workmanship; reference panels; case studies; resources.

SU1: Sustainable concrete

An introduction to the basics of specifying sustainable concrete; design and construction considerations, and the inherent long-life benefits of concrete. Includes responsible sourcing, BRE Green Guide ratings and embodied/operational CO2 information.

SU2: Utilisation of thermal mass

Explanation of principles and design techniques in both housing and non-residential buildings; future use in rising temperatures; passive solar design; embodied and in-use CO2 emissions and case studies. Includes benefits and guidance for use in SAP calculations.

SU4: Low carbon non-residential buildings

Explanation of principles and techniques for design for energy-efficient non-residential buildings using concrete construction. Includes use of thermal mass, water and air cooled structures; and considerations for building envelope. Illustrated through case studies.
