Saint-Gobain Glass offers expert-led webinars

Saint-Gobain Glass is delivering online training to architects, facade fabricators and specifiers during the government lockdown with a range of free glass and facade focused webinars.

Reportedly created in response to a ‘significant volume’ of requests for glass specification and technical training, Saint-Gobain Glass says its online seminars and training sessions will be accompanied by unique weekly interviews with some of the construction industry’s leading experts.

Saint-Gobain Glass’ current webinar schedule includes CPDs every Tuesday at 1pm, glass surgeries every Tuesday at 4pm and ‘Live@5’ on Thursdays at 5pm.

Saint-Gobain Glass head of major projects, David Entwistle, will be joined by a different Saint-Gobain technical expert every week to answer any building glass questions for the glass surgeries, while the more informal ‘Live@5’ interviews will feature special guests from the world of construction.

The business will be announcing new webinar topics and guests weekly.

Next week’s CPD will cover the aesthetics of facades, the topic for the glass surgery will be fire glass with Gavin Jackson, technical support manager at Vetrotech, and appearing on the Live@5 interview will be Arup’s global materials leader, Graham Dodd.

Lauren Whittaker, market manager for the commercial sector at Saint-Gobain Glass, said: “When the government lockdown was announced, we were approached by a number of people looking for a way to maintain and build connections and knowledge during this time.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide support and training particularly regarding glazing and facade specification, and it’s been great to see the fantastic support we quickly gained following the launch of the initiative earlier this month, with hundreds of attendees joining the webinars so far. There is something for everyone, from architects and specifiers to facade fabricators and glass processors and everyone in-between.”
