Cellular Glass Insulation – Reducing Risk by Design

Type: Seminar

 

This seminar aims to cover:

  • Understanding how cellular glass insulation is manufactured; the features and benefits of an hermetically sealed glass wall cell structure.
  • Sustainability and environmental issues; use of post-consumer waste / abundant natural raw materials.
  • Building physics; how insulation materials react to moisture, fire, point loading, changes in temperature, resistance to attack.
  • Building regulations Part L – Eliminating thermal bridging in foundations and wall / floor junctions.
  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
  • Effective solutions to construction problems; examples of cellular glass insulation to address building physics in “high risk” applications.
  • Technical support services.

 

Core Curriculum Topics (Knowledge Level: General Awareness):

  • Being safe (1): health and safety.
  • Climate (2): sustainable architecture.
  • Compliance (5): legal, regulatory and statutory frameworks and processess.
  • Designing and building it (7): design, construction, technology and engineering.
