The flexible range of CPD resources offered by Velfac will improve understanding of different window systems and of the specification process and are offered in a variety of formats. Topics discussed include:

  • How early engagement with window suppliers can significantly improve project outcomes.
  • How windows interface with common construction methods and build-ups and how build sequence can affect design, installation and sealing methodologies.
  • The different weather performance requirements of windows and curtain walling in the context of third-party insurance, particularly in the residential sector where glazing generates the greatest number of superstructure claims.
  • Thermal performance, solar control and acoustic performance in the context of window specification.
  • Window frame materials - uPVC, aluminium, timber, and composite aluminium/timber.

Velfac RIBA CPD materials were developed with advice and guidance from National Building Specification (NBS) to ensure they are relevant to architects working in every sector.
