Join us at this second free-to-attend, RIBAJ and SIG morning briefing as we further explore the differing techniques in contemporary roof specification, design and installation.
Hear from top architectural practices on three very different roofing challenges – including a detailed look at BACA Architects Amphibious House (featured on Grand Designs), and MAKE Architects’ Hiscox’s new Headquarters building which is being completed this autumn in York.
The morning seminar will explore the specific and unique challenges in the design of these specific projects and how specifiers found solutions for them. Find out what products they used and the benefits derived from them.
