A clearer view on Part L – Senior launches new RIBA Approved CPD

  • 22 Mar 2023

Senior Architectural Systems, the UK’s largest privately owned manufacturer of aluminium fenestration solutions, has created a new RIBA approved CPD seminar. This explores the ‘Evolution of Thermally Broken Window Profiles’.

The new CPD has been developed to both inform and support architects and designers in the specification of thermally efficient window systems to meet the new lower U-value targets as outlined by Part L of the Building Regulations.

The seminar looks specifically at the development of aluminium window systems, from the earliest designs to those that incorporate polyamide thermal barriers, and the latest generation of windows that feature the innovative use of polyurethane foam for even greater efficiency.


This is framed by a wider look at how the requirements of Part L have changed over the last 40 years and how thermally broken aluminium windows have evolved to also meet other key considerations such as acoustic performance, fire safety, reducing overheating through solar gain, and long-term maintenance requirements.

The role of the systems manufacturer will also be discussed and the seminar will cover the benefits of early engagement and collaboration, as well as the technical support that is available.

The new seminar on the specification of thermally broken aluminium windows is the latest to be developed by Senior, with the company also offering a CPD on ‘Curtain Wall – design, detail, delivery’.
