New Humidification CPD Seminar for FMs
C
ondair plc is offering a new
CIBSE-approved seminar on
humidification for facility
managers. It provides an overview of
the different humidifier types, the
service requirements for each, details
an FM’s responsibilities in relation to
L8 and offers trouble-shooting tips for
common humidifier issues.
The CPD seminar is ideal for any
contracted or in-house FM team working
with or looking to install a humidification
system. The session is free, one-hour
long and conveniently delivered over
lunchtime at a company’s site or office.
Condair will even pick-up the catering bill.
The CIBSE accreditation means that the
seminar’s
content
has
been
independently verified to be unbiased,
up-to-date and technically accurate. It
also enables attendees to gain CIBSE
CPD points from the convenience of
their own workplace over lunch.
To request further details or to book a
seminar, please telephone 01903

Remembering with Wood
T
he
National
Memorial
Arboretum
(NMA)
in
Staffordshire is winner of the
Large Visitor Attraction category in
the Visit England Awards for
Excellence 2018. Designed by Glenn
Howells Architects (GHA), this
stunning building is the UK’s yearround centre of Remembrance - a
spiritually uplifting place which
honours the fallen, recognises
service and sacrifice and fosters
pride in the UK.
The building engages materially with its
environment and harnesses a soft
material concept of larch timber and
natural stone. Internally this is
complemented by the installation of
1000sqm of Troldtekt wood wool
acoustic ceiling panels.
The £15.7m Remembrance Centre
provides a gateway into the 150-acre
site and is also home to exhibition and
interpretation spaces, retail space, a
restaurant, a café and a learning centre.
It sits within the National Forest area,
with 30,000 maturing trees and over 350
memorials. The interiors, also by GHA,
respond to the architectural language of
the new building and the surrounding
landscape with a sensitive selection of
natural materials, textures and colours.
This includes exposed timber structural
elements interspersed by the coarse
texture and grey coloured acoustic tiles
which do so much to create an
atmosphere of quiet and remembrance.
This project is typical of the European
wide specification of Troldtekt’s panels
- available in various sizes and in four
grades from extreme fine to coarse.
They are specified to improve acoustics
in public and busy buildings which need
to benefit from high sound absorption.
The wood wool panels feature high durability, natural breathability and lowcost life cycle performance. They are
Cradle to Cradle certified at silver level
and can be left untreated or painted in
virtually any RAL colour.
