Reynaers, the leading supplier of aluminium windows and doors, is delighted to offer a brand-new RIBA-accredited CPD course aimed at architects and other construction industry professionals.
The course, entitled: “Accessible Solutions for Aluminium Windows and Doors,” is suitable for those looking to learn more about aluminium solutions that meet the latest accessibility requirements for both domestic and commercial designs. Accessibility is an essential consideration for today’s architects and the new CPD has been developed to equip architects with requisite knowledge to incorporate the concept into their designs.
Simon Cray, Consultant Project Manager at Reynaers, comments: “Reynaers is committed to manufacturing innovative products and providing high quality CPD materials to building professionals. We are absolutely delighted to have our module ‘Accessible Solutions for Aluminium Windows and Doors’ officially approved by RIBA.
“CPD is an incredibly important resource for industry professionals looking to upskill. Giving participants the opportunity to demonstrate continual progression and commitment, it in turn enables organisations to position themselves as experts within the field.”
Devised and led by Simon Cray, the 45-minute seminar will provide delegates with a comprehensive guide to the changes to Approved Document M. It will also include an overview of the products that can assist architects in meeting the updated standards, which include new requirements for windows, doors and handles.
The course will additionally cover a comprehensive background history of accessibility legislation, including The Discrimination Act 1995 (c 50) and its replacement the Equality Act 2010.
Having worked on developments including the 2012 Olympic Athletes Village, Reynaers has extensive experience of delivering accessibility through aluminium systems. The CPD will draw on the company’s expertise in this area, using case studies to demonstrate solutions that have been used to assist in meeting specific accessibility standards.
Reynaers supplies an extensive portfolio of sustainable aluminium solutions for windows and doors. Many of the solutions are suitable for use in meeting accessibility requirements, including the company’s window for accessible homes, a variant of its best-selling CS 77 window system.
The company already offers practical structured learning for architects to understand the advantages and design benefits of aluminium glazing and curtain walling. Committed to facilitating professional development, it is able to tailor any of its CPD material to suit delegates’ learning objectives.
The new course, which Reynaers can deliver at its own Knowledge Centre HQ in Birmingham or at the architects’ premises, takes the same pragmatic approach to solution-led design, giving chartered members further choice in achieving their annual CPD targets with the most relevant learning.
