We are delighted to invite all NDA Students and Alumni (from all our courses) to a free industry seminar which coincides and takes part within Clerkenwell Design Week.
Shaw Contract Group have offered to deliver a seminar on Commercial Carpet ‘Going Beyond the Labels’ which has just been approved by the RIBA as part of the RIBA core curriculum approved material. The objectives of the CPD seminar are to compare and contrast the existing sustainability labels and building rating systems that are used in the UK Construction industry, and to see whether they go far enough when it comes to leading the industry in reducing environmental impact today and for the future.
The seminar covers the three main sustainability schemes or types.
- Type I, II and III product labelling to ISO 14025
- Building Rating Schemes such as BREEAM, LEED and Ska
- Life Cycle Assessment, LCA schemes such as EPD’s ( Environmental Product Declarations)
This is essential knowledge for the interior designer in 2013
The seminar aims to equip you with the information to understand the limitations of existing sustainability labels and to challenge companies so that you are specifying products that just don’t tick boxes but are making a fundamental difference in the way they are made, distributed, installed and de-employed.
This seminar will take place at the Shaw Contract Group London Showroom on Tuesday 21st May from 6pm – 9pm at;
3rd Floor, 80 Clerkenwell Road,
London, UK EC1M 5RJ
All NDA students and alumni wanting to attend should register by sending an email, to include their student number, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
