Revised Building Standards for Lime Binders - 9.30am-12.30pm

You might think building standards are as ‘dull as ditch water’ but working to relevant British and European standards for conservation work should be seen as best practice.

More recently the standards for building limes have been revised to make the descriptions of binders more clear in terms of their setting and hardened properties and also to capture the range of formulated and blended binders (principally for new build applications).

This seminar will address the changes in the standards for building limes and explain the differences between HLs, FLs and NHLs.

If you regularly specify lime mortars for conservation, repair and restoration work, or indeed new build, then this seminar is a must!

Understanding NBS Style Specifications - 1.30-4.30pm

Love them or hate them, but do they effectively communicate what you want to happen on your project?

Increasingly, non relevant clauses litter our specifications potentially causing confusion and ultimately meaning you don’t get what you thought you asked for on site.

This seminar will take you through both poor and good examples of NBS style specifications to demonstrate it’s all in the communication!

Course Suitability

These seminars are aimed at building professionals and building contractors.
