Check out our online CPD – A History of Handmade Clay Tiles

The history of English architecture is intertwined with the use of clay tiles with varying periods of popularity, each phase bringing new concepts, different styles and innovations. This story is the basis for our CPD, which looks at the roots of traditional heritage roofing and then moves forward to consider the modern challenges and product selection. The CPD then highlights how designers can recognise potential issues and minimise the risk of damage associated with heritage roofing.

Now, in addition to our extremely popular CPD events at Ewhurst, you can also access our CPD online via the new Knowledge Builder™ portal!

It is a user-friendly website dedicated to delivering CPD content in a digital format that fits in with architects’ busy lifestyles.
