Insulation specialist Actis has renewed its CPD partner support with LABC, continuing the two organisations’ six-year relationship.
The arrangement will see members of the Actis specification team take part in LABC’s monthly technical roadshows over the coming year.
The seminars – a mixture of face to face and online events – cover topics pertinent to architects, specifiers, builders and building control officers, with the Actis component focusing on thermal efficiency.
Sessions, which last two and a half to three hours, have provided CPD training to more than a thousand delegates across England and Wales over the past year.
Actis UK and Ireland sales director Mark Cooper said: “We’ve been running CPD training at LABC technical seminars since 2018 and we’re delighted to continue to support the construction community in this way. The sessions, which cover a range of topics, are always informative and interesting. Working as a CPD partner means we can offer valuable advice which will help builders and specifiers comply with building regulations as we move towards net zero.”
In addition to the 20-minute sessions it offers via the LABC roadshows, Actis has devised a number of full length CPD training courses including RIBA-approved modules on how to comply with changes to Part L and prepare for the Future Homes Standard - Tomorrow’s Insulation Solutions for Future Homes Standard – and Addressing the Performance Gap with Reflective Insulation . Another of its popular CPD sessions is on Proven Compliant Systems.
Actis’ insulation, vapour control and breather membranes have been praised by users for their cleanliness, ease and speed of installation, lack of waste, lightness and ease of transportation as well as their impressive thermal performance.
Their flexibility and ability to bend around corners and be squeezed into gaps means they are excellent at counteracting thermal bridging and ensuring air tightness.
