RIBA Gulf and Geberit Seminar Series – Module 1 : Designing Drainage Without Compromise DIN EN 12056

The RIBA has been exploring ways in which RIBA Gulf and Geberit seminars can be made available digitally to the membership across the Gulf (UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman).

The one hour webinar series is open to the entire Gulf and delivered over two days, with intervening gaps, allowing you time to reflect, revise and review. You can attend both modules in the series thus future-proofing your domain knowledge, or you can attend relevant modules only, if you need specific understanding of each topic.

This module will provide delegates with an expert level learning opportunity and provide insight on hydraulic principles of inhouse drainage systems with a focus on high-rise buildings. The seminar will enable professionals to achieve better outcomes and cover the following topics: 

  • the history, basics and types of drainage
  • the various options of materials and characteristics while designing drainage without compromise
  • the processes and considerations required to plan a drainage system
  • live Q&A session

This seminar is classified as ‘General Knowledge’ and will provide delegates with a higher level of expertise through sharing practical applied knowledge and will contribute to RIBA members' CPD points for the year
