The 8th CAB Technical Conference focuses on the challenges of controlling the flow of heat, fire, people and sound through the building envelope and managing the interface between glazing and the envelope.

Entitled ‘Working through the Building Envelope’, the event takes place on Thursday 16 May at Loughborough University and features some of the UK’s top aluminium façade specialists.      

The Conference that is open to the Association’s members, their guests and non-members takes place against the backdrop of a rapidly changing economic and regulatory landscape. The competing demands on the building fabric present special challenges for CAB members and the sector in general and the presentations will provide timely and practical information for the whole supply chain.

Proposed changes to Part L of the Building Regulations are a hot topic within the industry and our speakers will be providing the latest information available on this and also how regulations concerned with accessibility, fire and acoustics will impact upon construction projects in the future. The industry speakers who are drawn from leading sector organisations including the Construction Products Association, CWCT and BRE, will provide useful guidance on the opportunities and threats faced by our sector. As always there will be time for a lively discussion and debate on all the topics presented.

Justin Furness, CAB’s recently appointed Technical Director, comments, “I am looking forward to chairing my first Technical Conference with this year’s speakers set to provide delegates with an invaluable insight into the issues facing the sector and advice on how to deal with them. The interest in the event is highlighted by the unprecedented level of bookings and sponsorship to date’.
