On Tuesday 31st of October, we invited 30 local members of the construction industry to our head office in Salisbury to take part in a free CPD event day.
Architects and Surveyors were amongst those that joined us for two seminars by our Managing Director, Ian MacLennan, for an unrivalled look into Waterproofing whilst gaining accreditation for their CPD.
Arriving at 9:30am, our attendees were offered a hot breakfast and a chance to relax whilst introducing themselves to each other in our company bar.
As MacLennan are experts in their field; the first seminar was an in depth look in Waterproofing Design & Installation. Our key focus points in this presentation were the different types of waterproofing options available and the design considerations along with a look into failed systems, waterproofing myths and how to save money whilst avoiding pitfalls.
After the first presentation was complete, a buffet of our favourite items from local bakers, Reeves, was prepared for our guests. The October sun provided the perfect setting, allowing our guests to explore the grounds where they could meet our resident farm animals including the Donkeys and Alpacas.
We held a raffle and gave away various prizes to our guests to thank them for coming before settling into our second session of the day, 'Building Preservation'. This session not only covers different types of damp in buildings and how to investigate them, but also remedial waterproofing options that are guaranteed to conserve and are beyond beneficial to learn.
After the final presentation was complete, our guests were able to wind down in the bar and enjoy complimentary drinks whilst further getting to know their fellow attendees and the MacLennan team.
