One of the aims of the new NDSA committee was to provide architects with the opportunity to get hands on with materials and gain practical experience to help them gain a greater understanding of how things are constructed on site.
The NDSA are working in collaboration with Schlüter Systems, Nora Flooring and Interface to put on their first practical event.
Travel will be provided from Nottingham and Derby city centres to Schlüter Systems HQ where participants will see demonstrations and undertake practical training. There will be time for networking afterwards with wood-fired pizzas and refreshments all kindly provided by our sponsors!
The event is aimed specifically at architects and specifiers and numbers are limited due to the number of practical rigs available.
