As the aluminium in building sector treads carefully into 2013, CAB launches its first Regional Members’ event of the year which is to be held at the Magna Science & Adventure Centre, Rotherham.

The spectacular and inspirational venue, an ex steel works, is both a Millennium Project a former Stirling Prize Winner.

CAB’s successful format for these events will see over 100 members and their guests visit the Centre on Thursday 21st March to participate in a mini conference entitled ‘How Specifications are Changing’. Time will then be provided for delegates to visit the extensive galleries and exhibits prior to a dinner and networking opportunities.

CAB has recently confirmed two of the three proposed conference speakers. Ian Chapman, Head of Specification, NBS will present the main topic ‘How Specifications are Changing’. The Presentation will include consideration of how specifications are becoming more digitalised, where they are moving to and what their future is. In addition, the Presentation will look at how CAB members can help their specifier contacts in terms of providing the information they need, to the level of detail required, and most importantly the format in which they need it.

CAB’s second speaker is Kevin Frewin, Technical Development Manager at BSi, who will present the latest thinking on the Construction Products Regulations and the requirements for CE Marking which will be mandatory from 1st July2013. The Presentation will include an overview of what is required to provide a ‘Declaration of Performance’ (DoP) and specifically how this relates to the CE Mark label itself.

Initially the venue was home to the ‘Steel, Peech and Tozer Steel Works’, also known locally as ‘Steelos’, and became one of the largest Steelworks in Europe. In the late 1960‘s the works changed hands many times, eventually being owned by Corus, but sadly closed in 1993. During decommissioning the ‘Melting Shop’ was fortunately left standing and this in turn has become the ‘Magna Science & Adventure Centre’.
