This new CPD will help specifiers to understand the main reasons that brick stains and discolouration occur, and solutions to eliminate these problems either post-construction or at the building design and specification stage.
It can be delivered either live or remotely by one of Vandersanden’s highly trained team of brick specialists.
– The potential issues and key considerations for architects during the specification stages.
– The types of efflorescence and the effect of gypsum.
– The available options and preventative methods to eliminate these problems, including the protective role that innovative coated bricks can play.
– Solutions to ensure that the beauty of a brick facade can withstand the rigours of time.
Sarah Jefferson, UK Technical Advisor for Vandersanden, commented: “We are delighted to introduce this new RIBA approved CPD, exploring some of the challenges of discolouration and staining, which may be found on brick facades.
“This CPD will inform participants of the causes of brick staining and efflorescence and provide answers for architects on specification and detailing to ensure the enduring good appearance of their brick buildings.”
