Roca's CPD programme for architects and interior designers

 

• Shaping the Bathroom Space of the Future

Covering some of the key considerations and innovations that are influencing current and future bathroom spaces, this CPD seminar considers factors such as sustainability, new technologies, materials and groundbreaking product solutions.

The 45 minute seminar also includes information on ways to meet restrictions when planning a bathroom - for example limited space or legislation - without compromising on user experience, and advice on how to manage the life cycle of the bathroom space.

 

• Specifying Water Efficient Design for the Hotel Industry

There are strong environmental reasons for incorporating water efficient design into hotels, but does it make sense from a business perspective?

This CPD seminar looks at the issues of global water scarcity and its impact on the hotel industry, identifying strategies and processes required on a hotel project to achieve a holistic approach to water management. Through best practice case studies, we aim to demonstrate practical steps designers and architects can take at the design, construction and operational stages to reduce a hotel's strain on local water resources, without impacting the level of guest satisfaction.
