Playrite’s CPD Presentation Receives RIBA Accreditation

Playrite have always been regarded as experts, and now they feel it is important to pass their know-how on to architects so they have the knowledge to become experts themselves. Specifying synthetic grass for sport and play can be complex, especially if an architect has never had to work with products like this before. There are many issues to consider such as the type of surface (woven, needlepunch or tufted), the various sports governing body standards and how to know which surface is best for which sport or sports.

Now Playrite can answer all these questions, and any other that an architect or specifier may have about artificial surfaces for sport, play and leisure in our CPD presentation. Specifying Synthetic Grass for Sport and Play has been assessed by RIBA for quality of content and relevance, so everyone can be confident that they’ll be learning something both useful and informative. And because it is RIBA approved, it’s worth double points towards the 35 hours an architect needs to accrue throughout the year. The presentation lasts approximately 45 minutes and includes information on:


  • Different manufacturing processes
  • Understanding industry standards
  • Specific surfaces for sport
  • Playrite’s impact on the environment
  • Maintenance regimes
  • Life cycle costs
  • Key elements to consider when specifying


What’s more, the presentation is now available to architects without having to leaving the office. Playrite’s RIBA accredited CPD is the only presentation on synthetic surfaces and artificial turf available online, click here to see for yourself.
