New CPD: Performance Louvres in Breathable Buildings - Whole Life Carbon, Life Cycle Assessment & Beyond
Architects and building designers have a profound opportunity to make changes for greater climate resilience and energy efficiency and to help shape a better future through their creations. A powerful avenue of transformation lies in the realm of sustainable building materials and practices.
As part of Safetyline Jalousie’s commitment to support continued professional development at specifier and industry level, Safetyline Jalousie has launched its latest CPD – Performance Louvres in Breathable Buildings: Whole Life Carbon, Life Cycle Assessment & Beyond.
The new CPD also forms part of Safetyline Jalousie’s drive to support the industry in choosing products that help solve the many environmental, health, manufacturing, and urban planning challenges we are faced with today. Not just mask problems for future generations to uncover.
In the example of aluminium louvre windows, this CPD explores the best ways to tick your sustainability boxes, minimise the carbon footprint of your projects, and specify louvre systems that are manufactured in a manner that minimises waste and landfill.
Face-to-face and online sessions are available, where our dedicated Specification and Sustainability Manager Margaux Bonne will discuss:
- ‘Sustainable Architecture’ as it applies to aluminium louvres.
- The potential negative consequences associated with the manufacture and installation of aluminium louvres.
- The concept of ‘Lifecycle Assessments’ and how it can be employed to accurately measure the environmental impacts of building products.
- The types of aluminium louvre products that are genuinely sustainable.
