23rd August 2016 – Millboard®, the leading manufacturer of premium wood-free, resin mineral board outdoor flooring announces that it has launched their first RIBA Assessed Continual Professional Development (CPD) seminar for architects and specifiers.
The varied RIBA CPD programme keeps architects and other construction professionals up-to-date with the right skills, product knowledge and core competencies. The Institute recommends that chartered members are obliged to undertake at least 35 hours of CPD.
Paul Boylin, Marketing Manager, Millboard comments:
“Our seminar, sits within the RIBA Core Curriculum Designing and building it: design, construction, technology and engineering and provides a general overview of the design and installation of resin mineral board for outdoor flooring. Because Millboard combines the natural beauty of real timber with the high performance of our unique wood-free material, it is perfect for any architectural design project.
Where even the highest quality hardwood can warp, fade and lose its original appeal over time, Millboard is crafted using sustainable composite designed for outdoor conditions.”
The Millboard seminar, entitled Live Life Outside: Resin Mineral Board Outdoor Flooring, Design and Installation will help RIBA architects to:
- Understand the requirements
- Understand the regulations, technical and structural requirements for outside flooring areas
- Understand the differences between wood, wood plastic composites and resin mineral board
- Understand the properties of resin mineral boards, identify potential applications, design considerations for specific areas and best practice
This CPD seminar has been designed to educate architects about resin mineral board for outdoor flooring, the options available and the ways in which they can be customised to the specific design needs of the client and blend in with building design.
All CPD courses are designed to offer impartial advice to the specifiers and as such, course content is carefully assessed by RIBA. This ensures its impartiality; maintaining, enhancing and increasing the knowledge and skills of the professional.
Millboard technical consultants are available for CPD bookings at their head office in Coventry. Please either contact Millboard or your technical consultant for more information or to arrange a CPD for your practice.
