RIBA has approved a further two NARM Technical Documents for CPD use, as part of the RIBA Core Curriculum: Design, construction and technology – Knowledge level: Microlearning.
NARM NTD11, entitled ‘Understanding the differences between ‘non-fragile’ rooflights and ‘walk-on’rooflights for deliberate foot traffic’, gives detailed definitions of these two distinct categories of rooflight to allow for clear understanding and avoid specification errors.
NARM NTD12 is called ‘An introduction to natural daylight design in domestic properties’; it offers practical guidance for designers and specifiers, with sections covering energy efficiency, daylight control and sun screening, how light can affect designs and more.
NARM will continue to publish further material for submission to RIBA, with content and subject matter reflecting the breadth of NARM’s membership, covering all rooflight types.
For further information, please contact NARM using the contact details on our website, where you will be directed to the appropriate person.
