A Structured Approach to Roof Design

In the course of delivering their roof design CPD seminars to architects across the UK, SIG Design & Technology have found that the same questions come up again and again. How do I choose the right roofing system for my project? How can I make sure the system I specify will meet my client’s requirements? Our experienced specification team will take attendees through a step by step process to identifying the correct solution, and introduce a series of roof waterproofing systems including single ply, hot melt, liquids, green roofs and metals. You’ll learn about how to deal with common problems concerning detailing, compatibility and interfaces. The seminar is an hour long and includes a Q&A session with the presenter.
