Titled Achieving Large Format Glazing in Domestic Architecture – Design, Detail & Specification”, our new CPD will guide you through all the information you will need to confidently design, detail and specify large-format glazing solutions in the domestic context with a particular emphasis on the latest technology available in minimal frames.  

Taking the format of a lunchtime presentation, Prestige will provide gourmet sandwiches and wraps while we bring you up to date on the following learning outcomes:

1 – Overview of large format design

  • The latest technological advances pushing the boundaries of design & maximum glazing sizes.
  • The various framing materials available along with their pros and cons
  • Glazing systems available and when to use each in relation to design requirements and budget.
