VitrA Tiles introduces new and revamped CPD presentations

VitrA Tiles is launching a new RIBA-approved CPD presentation on Swimming Pools with a Tile Finish. At the same time the company is introducing revamped versions of its existing CPDs on Specifying Tiles in the Hospitality Sector and Understanding Designing and Specifying with Tiles.

The introduction of a new CPD and the enhancement and updating of the two existing documents is an important part of VitrA Tiles’ strategic goal to strengthen its profile in the architects’ and specifiers’ sector. Being RIBA-approved, the VitrA Tiles CPDs count towards architects’ professional accreditation.

The presentations cover the full range of tiling issues in the areas in question, bringing to each subject VitrA Tiles’ enormous capabilities and experience as a global market leader in tiling. The company’s tiles feature in projects all over the world, ranging from domestic to the most prestigious commercial projects. The technical expertise on offer and experience of tiling applications in a wide range of different types of installation is therefore unparalleled.

The swimming pool and leisure sector is an important and growing one for VitrA Tiles, where a number of tiling issues are key, including safety, non-slip and aesthetics. The CPD presentation Swimming Pools with a Tile Finish provides information for specifiers on all these and other areas.

The CPD presentation Specifying Tiles in the Hospitality Sector broadens the focus to include other aspects in addition to swimming pools, such as kitchen areas, as well as consumer expectations of luxury tiled installations throughout hospitality facilities.

Finally the CPD Understanding Designing and Specifying with Tiles covers all the issues architects need to be aware of when specifying and designing tiles, including different tile types and the importance of correct specification.

Ken Aston, UK & Ireland Sales Manager at VitrA Tiles says:

“Our suite of RIBA-approved CPD presentations provides important tools for architects and specifiers working with our products. Taken together with our products which are of interest to architects, such as ProColor – a new range of RAL colours launched this year – this shows that we are serious in providing the specification sector with the products that they need for their projects and also the key technical information to be able to specify and design successfully with tiles.”
