IKO Polymeric host RIBA Approved Factory Tour

IKO Polymeric host RIBA Approved Factory Tour

Single ply manufacturer IKO Polymeric opened the doors of its 7,000m2 state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Chesterfield to specifiers with a RIBA Approved Factory Tour as a CPD.

The seminar took place on the 16th of May and provided architects, building surveyors and design managers in-depth information on single ply roofing.

The attendees had an hour tour of the production line to learn about the manufacturing process of IKO Polymeric’s single ply membranes, strict quality checks and recycling procedure. They also visited the Prefabrication Department to find out how the bespoke details and pre-welded sheets are made.

The event also incorporated welding demonstrations of IKO Polymeric’s Armourplan and Spectraplan single ply membranes.

Following the demonstrations, the attendees all tried their hand at welding and competed with each other to achieve the neatest and strongest weld. The winner was selected by the Technical Manager Frank Williamson and presented with a surprise gift.

As well as the factory tour and the practical demonstrations, IKO Polymeric also presented their ‘Complex Detailing and Sustainability in Single Ply CPD’ along with an additional CPD from their partner Kingspan on the ‘Fire Performance of Insulated Panel and Façade Systems’.

During this event, specifiers learnt about good and bad practice, what to look for on site, how to overcome key design challenges such as responsible sourcing, as well as how to achieve complex detailing and high BREEAM ratings.

Anthony Horton – Design Manager at Galliford Try – commented: “The whole event was very well run and organised and the Complex Detailing and Sustainability in Single Ply CPD was very informative and useful.”
