Industry expert and manufacturer of construction products, Ronacrete, has had a third CPD approved by RIBA. Concrete Repair and Protection to BS EN 1504 is the third CPD from Ronacrete to receive RIBA approval in less than a year.

The CPD Concrete Repair & Protection to BS EN 1504 has been assessed by RIBA and categorised under the core curriculum subject:

Designing and building it: design, construction, technology and engineering

Compliance: the legal, regulatory and statutory framework

Knowledge level: General awareness

Learning outcomes of the CPD - a knowledge, awareness and understanding of:

  • Causes of concrete degradation
  • Assessing the types of repairs required
  • Types of repair available
  • Testing methods

This RIBA certified seminar offers guidance on the correct methods of carrying out concrete repairs and what can be done to avoid future issues. The seminar focuses on the importance of preparation, installation methods and protection.

Concrete Repair and Protection to BS EN 1504 will be presented at the RIBA roadshow in Brighton on 23rd April and can be booked online at http://www.ribacpd.com/cpdroadshow/riba-brighton-cpd-roadshow/124/

“Our technical team have put a lot of time and effort into producing an interesting and informative CPD about the implications of BS EN 1504 on concrete repair projects. I am sure it will prove as popular as the other two RIBA approved CPDs (Guide to Specifying Modified Screeds and SuDS Compliant Permeable Paving – Resin Bound Surfacing Systems) that Ronacrete is now delivering to architect firms on a weekly basis and which are receiving very positive feedback.”

The RIBA Core Curriculum was created by RIBA for its members to ensure that key architectural skills are covered in learning activities. It is a requirement that chartered members take part in a minimum of 20 of their yearly 35 hours CPD from the Curriculum, spending two hours of CPD time in each of ten key topics. RIBA Certified CPDs can be identified by the RIBA CPD Providers Network logo and attract double CPD points.
