Speakers announced for Brick Architecture CPD event in Manchester
The itinerary for this year’s Manchester CPD event has been confirmed. Hosted in the Museum of Science & Industry, Manchester, Tuesday 6th June, this one-day event offers an exciting lineup of industry experts:
Michael Brown, Managing Director of Northcot Brick, which supplied the bricks to RIBA Award winning Newport Street Gallery. Michael will talk delegates through the ways in which the hand-making process can be used to achieve distinct aesthetic and technical qualities.
Alexis (Lex) Harrison, designer and Associate of global engineering consultancy ARUP. A specialist in designing challenging facades in brickwork, Lex will speak on the subject of designing for movement in brickwork, which will cover important technical and aesthetic considerations including developments in specification and application, as well as exemplar modern projects.
Tim Multon of CPI Euromix will present on the importance of choosing the correct types of mortar. In addition to strength, colour, standards and the relationship between mortar and brick, Tim will use examples of architectural mistakes to highlight the importance of correct specification.
Neil Sullivan, Managing Director of MATCLAD will look at the application of clay brick in some methods of off-site construction and the niche role this plays in the UK’s built environment.
Stephanie Palmer, Sustainability Manager of Wienerberger UK, will talk delegates through clay brick’s role in the circular economy, highlight the understated credentials of clay brick as a sustainable construction material, and the progress of the sector in working collaboratively to continually improve operations.
Paul Surin, Head of Built Environment for Wienerberger AG, and representatives from BIM Technologies will present on BIM. In addition to the what and how of BIM technology, presenters will demonstrate the advantages of using BIM technology when designing with clay brick, both commercially and for the end user.
