The new Actis CPD module, certified by the Construction CPD Certification Service, looks at how installers can ensure their insulation and membrane use complies with building regulations
The new Actis CPD module has just been unveiled.
While its focus is on compliance with Part L – conservation of fuel and power, the Actis CPD module also examines in detail how all four Actis Hybrid products comply with Parts B (fire safety), C (site preparation and resistance to contaminants and moisture), D (toxic substances) and E (resistance to the passage of sound).
It examines how the blanket style nature of insulation Hybris, insulating vapour control layer HControl Hybrid and insulating breather membranes Boost R Hybrid and Boost R Hybrid Roof all help minimise or eliminate thermal bridging. It also looks at how they achieve superb U-values without risk of condensation.
It also flags up tools which specifiers can use to ensure they make the correct choices to guarantee compliance.
The first group to undertake the much-awaited second CPD was a building control team in Cornwall who collectively said it answered every single question they had on the topic.
Elements of the CPD will become a regular feature in the LABC’s monthly roadshows which take place at various locations across England and Wales.
Actis CPD module sessions
The sessions can also be booked en bloc by local building authorities or architectural practices or as part of a wider construction event.
The format involves a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute Q and A and a chance to inspect insulation materials first hand and talk to technical experts about compliance and thermal bridging issues.
The free events are organised at venues and times to suit the audience.
