JELD-WEN Core Curriculum CPD in Demand from Specifiers

One of the UK's leading timber joinery manufacturers JELD-WEN has seen an unprecedented increase in demand for its CPD seminar '21stCentury Timber Windows', which is part of the new simplified RIBA CPD Core Curriculum.

Since its simplification in September 2011, JELD-WEN's 21st Century Timber Windows forms part of the Core Curriculum heading covering 2: Climate: sustainable architecture, and 7: Designing and building it: design, construction technology and engineering.

The presentation is delivered by JELD-WEN's window specialists to specifiers on a national basis.

The CPD programme covers topics including how  values are measured and can be specified to achieve different levels of thermal performance, as well as giving an insight into energy ratings and how they relate to current Building Regulation requirements. 

JELD-WEN's CPD seminars are designed to keep specifiers up to date with the latest technical developments within its range, as well as the legislation relating to window specification.

For architects looking to achieve the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes, this information is covered in detail by the CPD programme. The seminar also looks at the longevity of timber windows, as well as the low maintenance factory finish options now available.

Also covered as part of the programme are extended product warranties, which includes JELD-WEN's market-leading 60 year LifeSpan™ guarantee.  

The seminar covers environmental aspects including why Chain of Custody certification is an important element of demonstrating sustainable use of building materials.

Ian Purkis, Technical Director at JELD-WEN, explains: "Our CPD seminars are renowned for being an invaluable resource for architects and building designers to accurately specify doors and windows to meet the latest legislation and performance requirements. We are expecting lots of interest in this latest CPD and look forward to delivering it to specifiers over the coming months."
