Gain a deeper understanding into the history and application of fibre cement facade materials with EQUITONE’s CPD presentation. This course delves into the history of fibre cement and uncovers the latest innovations in ventilated facade systems. We outline the different textures, colours and expressive surfaces and also look at the numerous approaches to internal and external design applications through a presentation of completed projects in Australia.
This presentation provides attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the natural façade offerings and rainscreen installation methods that can help Architects to deliver a sustainable design.
The course provides an introduction to fire compartmentation techniques and the importance of using passive firestopping in conjunction to active fire control measures, covering common applications requiring passive firestopping.
The Waterproofing and Protective Coatings CPD will look at the importance of waterproofing and protective coatings applied to reinforced concrete structures, including critical details and practical solutions for below grade, substrate preparation, falls and drainage, joints and abrasion resistance.
A CPD that breaks down the differences between Paint, Render, Flexible Acrylic Texture and Membrane finishes. Allows participants to correctly design and specify systems and identify the risk associated with design under relevant legislation and building codes.
Breathable Coatings over Masonry substrates. In this CPD participants will be able to understand the difference between conventional and mineral coatings, and how this benefits the life cycle of a design and project.
Architects can reduce the embodied carbon of a building by specifying lower carbon construction materials. Concrete represents a significant portion of the embodied carbon of a building. This one hour course explains why concrete has a high embodied carbon content and how it can be reduced without compromising the project schedule or the engineering properties of the concrete.
In this CPD you will learn about the importance of structural design considerations and the potential risks for concrete flooring treatments and coatings across planning, development and construction.
