Papergraphics’ first continuing professional development (CPD) module has gained approval from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
RIBA architects are required to complete a number of CPD modules every year to maintain their membership and accreditation. Papergraphics’ CPD module is entitled ‘Picture This: A Specifier's Guide to Construction Products Regulations for Digitally Printed Wallcoverings’ and explains the legal safety requirements for printed wallcoverings, falling into three subject and product CPD areas.
The module has also been classified within two categories of RIBA’s core curriculum, which means it carries more weight for qualifying CPD.
The aim of the CPD is to help attendees understand: wallcovering product types and relevant regulations; product performance requirements; the correlation between the construction products regulations and the UK building regulations; what to look for in fire performance, certification and CE markings.
“We’re not only focused on promoting awareness and use of the right product for the right project to our PSP customers,” said John Selby, CEO of Papergraphics, “we’re also reaching out directly to architects and specifiers, to highlight the practical and legal requirements they need to be aware of. In doing so, we’re also indirectly promoting the creative possibilities that digitally printed wallcoverings (and other applications) can offer them, helping to drive business for our customers in the digital LFP sector.”
“It’s really important to us and has been our message for some time now. To be able to work with a prestigious organisation such as RIBA to endorse what we’ve been saying all along is very gratifying,” Selby continued.
