Customer Spotlight: Actis Insulation joins RIBA CPD Providers Network
We recently welcomed Actis Insulation to the RIBA CPD Providers Network. We caught up with its UK Marketing Manager Maria D'Costa to find out more about why Actis Insulation joined the Network and the added value providing RIBA-approved CPD has brought to the manufacturer already.
Actis Insulation has designed and manufactured insulation and membrane products since 1980. As well as listing its products on NBS Source, Actis has recently joined the RIBA CPD Providers Network. We caught up with UK Marketing Manager Maria D'Costa from Actis to find out more about the manufacturer’s products and why it decided to start delivering RIBA-approved CPD to specifiers. Here’s what Maria said:
Actis Insulation’s CE-marked Hybrid system can be used on walls, roofs, ceilings and timber floors in refurbishment and new build projects. All products are aimed at eliminating thermal bridging and offer impressive thermal performance. They are flexible, clean, quick and easy to install. The system is approved by the NHBC and Premier Guarantee when used in accordance with the certification and it has LABC and LABSS registered details.
All RIBA-approved CPDs must be educational, innovative and have a clear learning outcome. Our CPD seminar ‘Addressing the performance gap with reflective insulation’ was developed with this in mind, as well as the ongoing Building Regulations Review. The seminar looks at the causes of the performance gap, evidence from research, and solutions from the manufacturer’s point of view, including tools to access these solutions.
Joining the RIBA CPD Providers Network has helped us to provide further knowledge to our customers and also enabled us to open new doors with new customers who are RIBA members.
We are currently presenting the seminar online. The move to online CPD has proved to be very successful for us and well received by our audience. We had over 40 attendees on our first online event with lots of interaction. Quite often we receive enquiries as a result of our presentations up to six months later, so there are longer term benefits too. Our specification and technical teams also look forward to presenting at RIBA CPD Roadshows in the future.
We would recommend becoming a member, by being able to work alongside RIBA and have your CPD RIBA certified, adds value and credibility to your business. As a result of our latest two CPDs, we have already engaged with 19 live projects and most of these are new contacts for Actis.
