The purpose of the training is to give delegates a good understanding of different cladding systems and their requirements to meet NHBC Standards. The course considers both curtain walling and built up wall cladding (rainscreen) and looks at key claim areas such as weathertightness, fixings and loadings; and we share our experience of the cause of failures. N.B. This course does not include any fire related content.
