A RIBA-approved online CPD designed to help specifiers overcome the design challenges of fit-out projects has been launched by Armstrong Ceilings.
Fit-out solutions for Category A and B ceilings, meets RIBAs core curriculum criteria of designing and building (design, construction, technology and engineering) at general awareness level.
It details how specifying the correct ceiling and wall solution can help achieve performance requirements, user comforts and sustainability for refits and retrofits alike.
The CPD explains how the economy has driven the refit sector, with property owners choosing to upgrade existing office space rather than building from new or buying purpose-built.
It also explains how a suspended ceiling is the perfect structure from which to run and conceal services such as lighting, sensors, sprinklers and AV equipment, and how canopies and luxurious materials such as metal or wood can bring the wow factor to spaces such as board rooms.
