Natural stone and terrazzo specialist Diespeker & Co has launched a new accredited Terrazzo CPD aimed at helping architects and designers to better understand the material.
The CPD offers an overview of terrazzo that starts with a potted history of how it was first used as a flooring material in Italy through to the latest innovations including bending terrazzo. It looks at the varying types of terrazzo from cement-based to resin, the differences between them and the scenarios they are best suited to.
The presentation will be given by one of Diespeker’s experienced terrazzo specialists, who will look not just at applications and methodology but also care and maintenance, and technical details such as suitable aggregate and pigments. Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
Also under the microscope is bespoke terrazzo, an area in which Diespeker excels, as the company has an artisan team committed to the continued use of traditional skills for unique finishes.
Diespeker MD John Krause said: “We created the CPD in response to requests from several clients looking for this type of training to help them understand terrazzo better.
“Diespeker was one of the first companies to introduce terrazzo to the UK in the 19th century; it is a mainstay of our operation and we are delighted to have the opportunity to disseminate some of our expertise to help dispel the myths about the material!”
The company is now considering other topics to cover in future CPDs and hope that delegates will flag up specific areas they would like to learn more about.
The new accredited seminar lasts for approximately 40 minutes and is suitable for lunchtime presentations. Delegates will earn CPD points for attending the event; Diespeker is happy to either visit an office where possible or organise the presentation at its own premises in South East London with the added benefit of delegates being able to have a tour of the factory and workshops.
