Continuing Professional Development in Yorkshire

The Thorpe Park Hotel was the venue for our latest March 2013 CPD event in Leeds.

With around 40 delegates including: Structural Engineers, Architects and Building Surveyors, the morning was based around updating the attendees on the latest technical details and products within the three subjects covered.

Structural repairs:

Bryan Hindle MD presented the first session, based around structural issues in buildings, he explored problems such as wall tie corrosion, masonry restraint issues and other forms of cracking which can occur in the fabric of a building. The presentation covered surveying techniques and repair methods including traditional and modern methods.

Sean Tristram-Jones then drilled down into basement waterproofing methods, and explained the importance of having a qualified CSSW qualified surveyor in the design team. The more relevant parts of BS8102 were explained; including which waterproofing methods should or shouldn’t be used in different situations. Injection waterproofing was also explained and included a demonstration on how the injection resin, foam and gels react in different situations – a real magic show.
