We are delighted to offer Continous Professional Development (CPD) presentations presented by our Specification Managers across the UK.  As members of the RIBA CPD Providers Network, all of our courses are RIBA approved which can be used to claim CPD points. 

Duration
Our CPD are for a duration of approx. 45 minutes and can take place virtually online via Teams software or Webex, any time from Monday - Friday. 

Who should attend?
Architects, design and build specifiers, building engineers, planning and building control officers and developers. By request, the seminar can also be re-focused to give more information specific to sector or aimed to estimators/quantity surveyors.

Following the seminar, our specification team will be happy to  discuss any projects you may be working on at the moment, offer general advice and arrange for K10 specification support to be supplied to you free of charge.

What is it about?
In many applications, new building regulations and performance specifications demand more than conventional solutions can deliver. Using wet trades or traditional dry lining techniques can often limit design and ceate difficulties on site. High-density fibre gypsum board could be the most effective and time-efficient solution.
