What is the CPD about?

The presentation will aim to explain the issues relating to the selection, design and fixing of clay roof tiles.  It is also an opportunity to explore the range of design possibilities with clay tiles, particularly contemporary and alternative designs in clay.

It will last 30 minutes and following the main body of the presentation there will be time for questions.  A significant portion of the presentation is a detailed look at samples from a range of manufacturers, to compare and contrast their appearance and manufacturing process, together with a look at a range of projects with photographs. 

The presentation should enable you have a better understanding of the issues relating to the specification of plain clay tiles and provide an opportunity to discuss any specific points in greater detail.
