NEW RIBA approved CPD Seminar from Daylight & Ventilation Solutions

DVS, Daylight & Ventilation Solutions Ltd, is now offering a RIBA approved CPD seminar, entitled “How to Design and Specify Glass Roofs and Skylights”.

The seminar fits into the RIBA CPD core curriculum under Core Curriculum Subjects - Designing and building it: design, construction, technology and engineering with Knowledge level: General awareness.

After a brief company introduction, the first section of the seminar focuses on ‘designing out failure’ and contains useful references to problems associated with old technology and how modern daylighting solutions have addressed these.

This is followed by information designed to help delegates to understand the benefits of natural daylight and ventilation, with examples including how appropriate daylight levels and comfortable internal environments can provide measurable improvements in the health, wellbeing and performance of building occupants in various different sectors.

At this point, the seminar shifts to a more technical focus, with two detailed sections on designing roof gazing and ventilation systems. Topics include orientation, size and positioning of rooflights, daylight factors and U-values. The ventilation section divides into two areas: covers daily comfort ventilation and smoke & heat exhaust ventilation (SHEV). Topics under ventilation include airtightness and rates of ventilation, as well as strategies for preventing overheating.

The presentation also covers acoustic design, watertightness, impact resistance and verification of performance, to complete a really comprehensive overview of the specification process.
Dan Boughton, DVS Director, said: “We’re delighted that our seminar has received the RIBA accreditation and we are looking forward to delivering it at a number of practices and events around the UK over the coming months.”

DVS is UK distributor for the leading European-made Lamilux range of roof glazing and ventilation solutions and is a pioneer in providing Passivhaus Certified roof glazing to the UK market.
