The Structural Design of Stainless Steel
This seminar provides architects and structural engineers with guidance on the structural use of stainless steel, including relevant material properties, design principles and design standards, and highlighting sources of further information.
Stainless Steel in Swimming Pools
This seminar will help architects to specify, inspect and certify successful slate-roofed buildings, based on new awareness of common defects that have been encountered on sites and by providing them with a suite of robust slating details and a simple inspection checklist for use on site.
Stainless Steel for Architects
This seminar provides a general introduction to stainless steel for architects, including grades, standards and surface finishes, including the properties of stainless steel, EN 10088 specifications, modern surface finishes, environmental benefits and where to obtain further advice.
Specifying Stainless Steel for Architectural Applications
This seminar provides architects with practical guidance on the specification of stainless steels, including material grade, surface finish and flatness criteria, and factors influencing the cost of different specifications.
Selecting and Specifying of Stainless Steel Surface Finishes
This seminar introduces the exciting range of modern stainless steel surface finishes available to the architect, and provides guidance on selection and specification, factors affecting service performance and availability.
Optimising Design and Fabrication of Stainless Steel Components
This seminar explains the basic principles of stainless steel fabrication which are relevant to architectural design and identifies the key factors to be taken into account in designing cost and performance effective architectural features and components.
Designing Building Exteriors in Stainless Steel
This seminar is designed to help architects get the best out of stainless steel in the design of building exteriors, and to avoid practical problems that would give disappointing service or performance, including issues affecting material selection and long-term maintenance.
Cleaning and Restoring Stainless Steels in Architectural Use
This seminar provides architects with guidance on maintaining the visual performance of stainless steel in architectural use, including choice of grade and finish, erection, cleaning and restoration, and where to go for specialist advice.
