Committed to continuous professional development

Our dedicated team at Partel is passionate about innovation and sustainability and has vast expertise across all areas of engineering, architecture, and building physics. Being one of the leading companies in the green building sector we wish to encourage and educate trade professionals in low energy building as well as promoting further growth in the move towards energy-efficient smart building.

In addition to providing tailored technical advice, WUFI risk analysis and onsite inspections we have for the past 8 years provided a variety of CPD courses and seminars on the issue of green building practices.

If you are eager to upskill on the key issues, procedures, and application methods in the areas of airtightness, wind tightness, ventilation and thermal bridging, these courses are available and open to all – architects, engineers, building consultants, tradesmen, installers and homeowners.

For further information please see below our CPD and seminars available.

Current Courses

Best Practice for Air and Windtight Structures

This RIBA Approved CPD focuses on the importance of air and wind tightness in low-energy building design. It discusses the importance of external and internal membranes, their sealing and highlights best practice on how to specify and install. It also focuses on the risks associated with airtight buildings and how best to overcome these.

Duration: 45 minutes presentation, plus a 10 minute for Q&A

By the end of the seminar you should have a greater understanding of:

  • Correct product choice for specific scenarios
  • Correct detailing and specification for optimum results
  • How to determine where an airtight layer should be
  • How to specify correct products for varying scenarios
  • Airtight principles and risks associated

Partel Business Development Managers are available for CPD bookings across the whole of the UK and Ireland.

Energy Efficient Building Seminar

The Energy Efficient Building Seminar (EEBS) is the first series of seminars in Ireland to provide a comprehensive approach to sustainable building design and construction in accordance with the requirements of nZEB..

Partel in partnership with KORE, Daikin, NorDan, Harmony Timber Solutions and Lunos are responding proactively to the recent changes to the building regulations by hosting a series of nZEB related seminars throughout the country.

The EEBS will showcase the very best in design, construction and compliant solutions that meet and exceed the recent changes to Parts L & F of the TGD’s. Gain valuable insights into how Airtightness, Thermal Bridging & Ventilation Partel systems can and should be used to achieve nZEB in both residential and non-residential buildings.

This Seminar represents a unique opportunity for Architects, Engineers, Designers, Specifiers, Developers and Building professionals to learn and be inspired by members in the green building industry.
