Book A CPD - Zoom / In person

Our team of construction professionals are available to deliver our range of educational CPD Seminars in person or via Zoom meeting, at a time and date that fits your schedule. There is a live Q&A session after the presentation. We currently have 8 CPD Seminars available:

Building Refurbishment: Systems for Retrofit & Conservation

This CPD gives an overview of the factors to consider in refurbishment and conservation projects, including the basics of building physics as related to hygrothermal design. It also provides an overview of the standards, regulations and frameworks involved in designing for retrofit and conservation. By the end of the CPD, you should have a greater understanding of:

  • The retrofit and conservation considerations
  • Knowledge of hygrothermal material properties and good design practice
  • Introduction to hygrothermal assessment standards
  • Introduction to PAS 2035 design framework
  • Reducing condensation risks in pitched roof refurbishment
  • The relationships between hygrothermal and fire performance criteria and their implications

Air Leakage and Fire Performance in Façade Systems - NEW RIBA assessed CPD Material

This CPD aims to provide an overview of UK and Irish building regulations relating to the compliance of construction membranes, with respect to air leakage and reaction to fire. It will cover adjacent issues of moisture control and hygrothermal assessment, and the implications of air leakage strategies on both energy efficiency and "as designed" vs "as-built" performance. By the end of the presentation you should have a greater understanding of:

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Heat, Air and Moisture movement in building and relevant building regulations
  • Hygrothermal Assessments, Dynamic vs Steady State methods
  • Mechanisms and effects of air leakage on building envelopes
  • Performance and location of membranes as air barriers in facade applications
  • Fire test methods, classifications and BR135
  • The relationships between hygrothermal and fire performance criteria and their implications

Simplifying Airtightness in Modular Construction

This CPD covers key design considerations involved in modular construction of all type of buildings. The presentation focuses on the use of the Wraptite® and Fireshield® vapour permeable membranes, and looks at building regulation compliance, strategies to manage the movement of heat, air and moisture in the building envelope, and considers good design and installation practice for air and vapour control membranes.

The presentation also covers fire spread and fire protection methods in façade construction, with a focus on the use of intumescent vapour permeable membranes.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Principles of Designs for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA).
  • Balancing heat, air and moisture in modular buildings.
  • WUFI Hygrothermal assessment methods and benefits compared to Glaser method.
  • Methods for offsite installation of membranes in modular construction.
  • Part B Compliance of Façade construction
  • BR135 & Mechanisms of fire spread
  • Benefits of intumescent construction membranes

Introduction To Construction Membranes

This CPD covers the types and functions of construction membranes which are available today as well as looking at how these functions have developed over time.

The presentation focuses on the use of vapour permeable membranes and vapour control layers in domestic timber frame applications and considers the effect these membrane can have on the overall energy performance and air leakage of the building envelope.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Managing the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture Movement in timber frame.
  • Key performance criteria for construction membranes.
  • Specification and installation of vapour permeable (“breather”) membranes in walls.
  • Thermal performance of reflective membranes.
  • Specification and installation of vapour control layers in walls.
  • Use of membranes to control air leakage.
  • Fire Protection: Breather membranes, vapour control layers and fire solutions
  • Membrane myths and misconceptions.

Building On Contaminated Land

As you will know there have been some significant legislative changes in regards to how a structure is protected against gas since June 2015. As a company the A Proctor Group has been supplying gas membranes and venting systems since 1995. Due to changes in BS8485:2015 we have substantially updated our CPD offering.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • What are ground gases and why we protect against them
  • Risk Assessment
  • Installation, Integrity Testing & Validation
  • Legislative changes
  • Design
  • Modelling of Ground Gas Ventilating Systems

Facade And Highrise Building Design

This presentation discusses technically advanced façade design solutions using the Wraptite® self-adhered vapour permeable air barrier. The use of this system allows reduced air leakage to be achieved more easily, enabling these lower rates to be incorporated in SAP and SBEM calculations at the design stage. This boost to energy performance can enable reductions in building footprint, or allow for switching of insulation types while retaining element depths.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Exceeding current airtightness regulations and improving design values
  • Regulation compliance in high rise applications. Complies with use on buildings of high rise and over 18m under Part B amendments made in November 2018, Membranes need to be Class B,s3,d0 or better, with Wraptite at Class B,s1,d0.
  • Less EPDM over complete envelope – limiting calorific values
  • Hygro-thermal Modelling (WUFI) showing the difference of not using a VCL within some constructions benefits the building further.
  • Improving airtightness may allow you to change thickness or type of insulation used when modelled through SAP or SBEM.
  • Balancing Heat, Air and Moisture movement in the building envelope
  • Detail design for junctions and interfaces
  • BBA Certification and independent BRE testing and compliance statements

Condensation In The Roofspace

This presentation discusses the requirements for breather membranes, air barriers and vapour control layers, looks at the principals of condensation, the effects of condensation, issues of detailing cold pitched roofs i.e. insulation, ventilation and underlay. It also looks at condensation controlling measures and solutions.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • What is condensation?
  • Pitched roof design considerations
  • BS5250 and BS5534
  • Ventilated and non-ventilated pitched roof constructions
  • Vapour permeable underlay certification
  • Types of vapour permeable membranes and their properties
Book This Presentation

Airtight Membrane Systems

This CPD covers the importance of limiting air leakage in buildings with a particular emphasis on the types and functions of construction membranes and their implications on building energy performance. It also provides an overview of relevant legislation and best practice, and discussion of internal and external air barrier solutions.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Construction Membranes Types and Functions
  • Airtightness Guidance & Legislation
  • Influence of Airtightness on Energy Performance
  • Effect of Airtightness Compared to Fabric Insulation
  • Locations of Air Barrier Layers

Spacetherm® - Aerogels In Building Refurbishment

The presentation discusses the basics of thermal insulation in buildings, with a particular emphasis on historical and traditional construction methods. Looking at thermal performance properties of various insulation materials and how they affect the balance of heat, air and moisture movement. It then moves onto the uses of high performance aerogel insulation in a variety of applications.

This is followed by an overview of hygrothermal assessment methodologies and the use of WUFI software for modelling moisture flow in buildings with practical examples of the benefits this can bring to building design.

Topics covered in this CPD:

  • Basics of Thermal Insulation
  • K, R and U Values
