Our CPD seminars are designed to help you improve or maintain your industry knowledge and skills.
The Benefits of Well Planned Cycle Infrastructure
Join us to build your skills on specifying the right products for your cycle infrastructure project.
The CPD covers the benefits of cycle infrastructure from several perspectives - society, the economy and the end user. The presentation also covers the LTN1 20 document, the history of cycle infrastructure and the Charcon range of cycle kerbs.
There is additional focus on the Dutch Entrance kerb outlining its applications, a case study and the manufacturing process.
The CPD will cover the access and use of buildings, “Building Regulations Part M 2004” and the NHBC recommendations. Ramps, steps and tactile paving will be reviewed in detail along with examples of good and bad product selection. The presentation will also consider how the good design of access and mobility can be incorporated sympathetically into the public realm whilst putting the end user first.
The CPD will cover manufacturing tolerances, British Standards and tests for concrete block paving, flags and kerbs. Installation and Design standards will be reviewed along with general pavement construction. The appropriate selection of pavement materials and their loading capabilities will be discussed and examples of good and bad detailing will be demonstrated. The CPD will leave the attendee with the ability to select the correct paving product for the intended application.
