Rainwater CPD Presentation Available Online

The RIBA-approved CPD – ‘Specifying an alternative to traditional rainwater systems’ – is a 20 minute long video that provides viewers with a deep understanding of rainwater and soil systems, the requirements for these products and to offer an alternative. It looks at industry standards and regulations, specification requirements, design and installation, as well as performance and maintenance, and health and safety considerations.

Suitable for anyone involved in the specification and installation of rainwater systems including architects, developers and contractors, the online CPD includes case study examples featuring cast iron style rainwater systems across a wide range of applications.

The presentation illustrates how modern plastic systems can meet specifier’s requirements for easy-to-install and economical alternatives to traditional cast iron. These systems offer heritage aesthetics without the cast-iron price tag. Brett Martin’s Cascade Cast Iron Style Rainwater and Soil range provides an authentic cast iron style in plastic and is a cost effective, easy to install and long term alternative to traditional guttering systems. Approved by many Planning Authorities for use on even the most demanding heritage project,  Cascade is so close in detail to genuine cast iron that it is difficult to tell the difference, making it an increasingly popular choice at sympathetic refurbishments, restorations and traditional style new builds.

“As a leading manufacturer of plastic rainwater systems, we are well placed to help educate specifiers and installers about the benefits of rainwater and soil systems,” said Paul Wadsworth, Specification Manager Brett Martin Plumbing & Drainage. “Our new CPD presentation will help construction professionals gain an even better understanding of specifying an alternative to traditional rainwater systems.”
