Technical Team present CPD to Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists

25th March 2016

Quinn Building Products Technical Team attended the University of Ulster, Jordanstown to present their RIBA Approved CPD Seminar on How to Save on Construction Costs with Effective Thermal Bridging Solutions in association with the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) from Region 15 Northern Ireland.

The CPD offered the CIAT members in attendance the opportunity to reinforce their professionalism and competence as well as enhance and develop their skills to stay ahead of industry developments and continue to grow and progress their career.

Jason Martin, Product Specification at Quinn Building Products delivered the CPD and provided great insight into the advantages of using Thermal Bridging Solutions highlighting Quinn Building Products’ unique set of Accredited Construction Details and their associated Thermal Bridging (Psi Ψ) values, which greatly assist Architects, SAP Assessors and Specifiers during the design process.

Declan Loane, Product Specification at Quinn Building Products said, “We were very proud to offer this CPD in conjunction with CIAT to over fifty of their members including a range of associates, lecturers and students.

Mark Clarkson BIM Co-ordinator at Quinn Building Products elaborated on the CPD and explained how Building Information Modelling (BIM) can facilitate Architects, SAP Assessors and Specifiers to use the Accredited Construction Details and associated Thermal Bridging (Psi Ψ) values on their future projects.

Eddie Weir, CIAT Vice President Practice and the Northern Ireland Regional Chairman said “The presentations from Quinn Building Products were to an exceptional standard and the feedback from our members was excellent.
