The Siderise Group in conjunction with BRE are holding a facades conference aimed at those companies and individuals involved in the design or installation of external facade systems.

 
 

FAÇADES CONFERENCE

 

Wednesday 13 January 2016, BRE, Bucknall Lane, Watford, WD25 9XX

 

The Siderise Group in conjunction with BRE would like to invite you to attend a full day conference aimed at those companies and individuals involved in the design or installation of external façade systems.

 
 

BRE

Both the curtain wall and rainscreen facade industries are currently seeing a healthier construction market but, with an increasing number of players entering the sector, it is important that the quality of installation is maintained. BRE will be presenting on its third-party certification scheme for companies involved in the installation of firestop and cavity barrier systems. The scheme will aim to offer those companies a means of differentiation within the market, potentially removing the need to sub-contract the fire protection package.

 
 

Building Control Alliance

The Building Control Alliance in conjunction with NHBC have recently issued new guidance on the use of combustible cladding materials on residential buildings. Steve Evans, Chair of the BCA Technical Group will be presenting this document at the conference, the content of which may have major repercussions for those involved in the design and installation of rainscreen and other open state facade systems, including specific guidance relating to cavity barrier systems.

 
 

Arup

Professor Barbara Lane is a fellow at Arup and practice leader of their Fire Engineering team. Her presentation will focus on fire protection of curtain wall façades and will address the growing move towards greater fire protection within the spandrel zone.

 
 

Clarke Saunders Associates

Acoustics in façade design is always a concern because, unlike fire, noise is something that building occupants are exposed to on a daily basis. Ed Clarke of Clarke Saunders Associates will be presenting a paper on “Building Fabric Sound Insulation – An Acoustic Façade?”

 
 

Priedemann

Lars Anders is Managing Director of Priedemann, a façade consultancy practice that has built a worldwide reputation on its expertise. Lars will be presenting the paper “Facade Consultant and Facade Engineer united” which will focus on the best ways for these two disciplines to work together on a project.

 
 

Association for Specialist Fire Protection

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection is the trade body that’s the first port of call for the Government when looking at how the Building Regulations can best meet the fire considerations of building construction. Their Technical Manager, Niall Rowan, will be looking at the test procedures involved in fire barriers used in both curtain wall and rainscreen façades.

 
 

The Conference will include lunch and a tour of the BRE Innovation Park. This full day Conference will cost only £50.00 per person.

As we expect this to be a popular event we regret that we may unfortunately have to limit attendance to 2 personnel per company.

If you are interested in attending the conference please email us and include the following information:

  • Your company name
  • Your contact phone number (preferably mobile)
  • Full name of delegate 1 (£50.00)
  • Full name of delegate 2 (£50.00)
  • The full names of any additional delegates who you would like to attend – these will be added to our reserve list. (Please note that colleagues in your company may have also received this email.)

We will contact you within 3 working days to confirm your initial 2 delegate tickets.

Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Facades Conference
