Our Galvanizing and Sustainable Construction CPD contains information gathered as a result of the European Initiative for Galvanizing in Sustainable Construction, of which Galvanizers Association has been a major contributor.
Many independent experts have contributed to this initiative of a sustainable RIBA CPD including Prof. Tom Woolley, a well-known advocate of green and natural building. The aims of the initiative were to help architects, specifiers, engineers, developers and their clients consider how to use galvanized steel in the context of sustainable construction.
Time: The presentation is 45 minutes long
The sustainability cpd presentation includes information on:
* Introduction to hot dip galvanizing
* The galvanizing process
* Coating characteristics and performance
* What is sustainability?
* Sustainable aspects of galvanizing: carbon footprint, recycling and durability
* The benefits of zinc and steel
* Case studies: Life Cycle Analysis
Before booking this RIBA-approved construction CPD, we recommend you have the Corrosion Protection of Steel CPD (Building CPD), so that you develop a complete understanding of the hot dip galvanizing process.
