Topics Covered in Our CPD Seminars:
Our CPD seminars are constantly being updated in line with the new regulations and we are always looking for new ways of updating our material. The 1-hour CPD seminars we are currently running for property care and preservation are the following topics:
Basement Waterproofing and BS8102 Regulations
Our basement waterproofing seminars focus on the three methods of waterproofing systems (types a, types b, types c) and how a specialist assesses the construction type and location of the building to identify which type of system to use.
We will explore the recent changes to BS8102 and the three grades of protection in below-ground spaces.
Causes, Diagnosis and Rectification of Dampness in Buildings
Having dampness in buildings is a problem that you will come face to face with. In this popular CPD seminar, we assess how to identify the causes of damp and the different types that can affect your property. The three types of damp are penetrating damp, condensation and rising damp. Diagnosing the damp issue is relatively easy, however, diagnosing the causes of damp can be much more complicated to work out.
The common symptoms of dampness are: peeling paper, black mould, moisture forming on the windows and walls and crumbling plaster. We will finally explain that various types of damp have their own symptoms and their own methods of damp proofing. Before any treatment can be carried out, the diagnosis needs to be correct so that the problem is not made worse.
Woodworm Infestation and Fungal Decay in Buildings
The first part of the seminar will focus on the different types of wood-boring insects that are affecting properties across the UK. We will look into the different types of woodworm beetles, the lifecycle of woodworm, the importance of carrying out the identification. We also describe the best treatments and solutions to getting rid of the woodworm problem.
The part of the seminar will be focusing on the wood rotting fungi wet rot and dry rot. We will explain the lifecycle and the latest methods of treatment for wood rot. We also focus on resin and structural repairs for affected timber.
Our CPD sessions provide an ideal opportunity to meet and talk through any property related issues you may have.
