Balustrade expert Richard Burbidge offers a comprehensive CPD seminar, providing architects with a detailed guide to specifying internal balustrade for staircases and other interior areas.
RIBA approved, the seminar provides an overview of the importance of stair balustrade as a safety and aesthetic feature. The latest Building Regulations, standards and strength testing requirements for residential and commercial applications are also covered in detail. In addition, the seminar examines the design and structure of staircases, as well as the wide variety of materials used in balustrade systems and their aesthetic benefits.
Richard Burbidge has been manufacturing balustrade systems for over 40 years, supplying a market-leading range, suitable for installation in homes, apartment buildings, offices, hotels and leisure facilities. David Richards, Specification and Trade Marketing Manager for Richard Burbidge, comments: Safety is paramount in the specification of internal balustrade and our CPD seminar can help architects to select fit for purpose product. The seminar also addresses how balustrade can enhance a propertys aesthetic appeal, especially as the staircase is likely to be one of the first interior features seen by building users.
At a time when building features and design are under scrutiny, as a result of the recession, our CPD seminar provides architects with all the information they need to confidently design staircases with balustrade that will add value and achieve maximum visual effect.
