The aim of this CPD is to take an in depth look at the systems that lie behind the rainscreen façades of buildings and what factors should be considered when designing safe, healthy, energy-efficient and sustainable buildings.
It looks at some typical high performance rainscreen facade systems and how the choice of insulation affects the design of the system, as well as the thermal, fire safety, and acoustic performance.
