Created in response to a significant volume of requests for glass specification and technical training, Saint-Gobain Glass’ online seminars and training sessions will be accompanied by unique weekly interviews with some of the construction industry’s leading experts to discuss all things glass and much more.
Saint-Gobain Glass’ head of major projects, David Entwistle, will be joined by a different Saint-Gobain technical expert every week to answer any building glass questions for the glass surgeries, while the more informal ‘[email protected]’ interviews will feature special guests from the world of construction.
More new webinar topics and guests will be announced weekly.
Next week’s CPD will cover the aesthetics of facades, the topic for the glass surgery will be fire glass with Gavin Jackson, technical support manager at Vetrotech, and appearing on the [email protected] interview will be Arup’s global materials leader, Graham Dodd.
Lauren Whittaker, Market Manager for the commercial sector at Saint-Gobain Glass, commented: “When the government lockdown was announced, we were approached by a number of people looking for a way to maintain and build connections and knowledge during this time.
“We’re pleased to be able to provide support and training particularly regarding glazing and façade specification, and it’s been great to see the fantastic support we quickly gained following the launch of the initiative earlier this month, with hundreds of attendees joining the webinars so far.
“There is something for everyone, from architects and specifiers to façade fabricators and glass processors and everyone in-between.”
