First of all a big thank you to those who attended my webinar last Friday on 'Pressurisation Systems in residential and commercial buildings'. If you missed it or would like to watch it again a recorded version is available here. Many questions were asked after the presentation and I decided to post the most interesting ones up here for everybody’s benefit.
We all run on a very busy schedule and sometimes professional development takes a back seat for lack of time. The webinars we have held this past year have proved popular, as they offer a way to learn more on topics central to our industry without leaving your desk. To make it even easier to plan ahead and fit your professional development within your busy schedule, we are publishing dates for our upcoming webinars, all of which are held at 12:30 UK time:
Join Paul Compton, Technical Manager at Colt UK, from 12.30-13.30 GMT on Friday 19th April 2013, as he presents a free webinar on Smoke pressurisation systems.
On the 14th of September Paul Compton will be back in the presenting role to cover once again the topic of ‘Smoke Ventilation using Shafts’. With just over two weeks to go until this event we thought we would offer a preview and sample slides of the topics that will be covered in the hour long session:

The Car Park Ventilation CPD webinar run by Colt last Friday generated a large number of questions from the audience which could not all be answered due to time constraints. As I don't want to disappoint anyone and the whole idea of the webinar was anyway to learn, here are all the questions posed and their respective answers:
After running its first webinar run in December, Colt is pleased to announce its second CPD-accredited webinar on the topic of Car Park Ventilation.
Buildings are becoming increasingly airtight to meet energy efficiency and low carbon emission regulations, such as the Approved Document L (ADL). This means that, when designing the building’s smoke control system, it is essential to include not only means of extracting the smoke, but also ways to let the air in.
