Workshops

Correctly specified, installed and operated and serviced solar shading enhances any building. Control of light, provision of privacy and helping to improve the internal environment by controlling heat gain and loss can all be achieved by internal and external window blinds, Skylights tension systems and outdoor products.

Overview
This is an informal half-day educational awareness program held twice a month for a relatively small group of FM and Project professionals that focuses especially on techniques and skills in the management of large numbers of blinds and solar shading. The half-day is split into two modules Practical and Awareness. The time spent not only familiarises all attendees with the basics of commercial blinds including legal and Health and Safety directives in the workplace relating to shading but also introduces them to practical work in the workshop.

The early morning is spent meeting the team and then in the training room addressing topics including facilities management best practices towards blinds, legislation with blinds already in place, lifecycle sustainability, energy efficiency and strategic purchasing. The second part of the morning is “hands-on” in our fully customized workshop. Putting together the blind makes building service managers and their team more competent in handling practical services work. Participants acquire skills to make at least one roller blind. You’ll leave with at least one finished blind completely free, from a choice of fabrics in stock.

What size should attendees plan to make?
We recommend you choose to make a standard size window blind no more than 2m x 2m, so participants can complete the whole task – perhaps a kitchen window. We’ll send you details of how to measure up, and what you’ll need to bring.

Who’s it for?
Public and private sector facility management specialists, service providers, members of BIFM, as well as professionals and end-user clients in interiors and Fit-out. Classes are limited to 4. Everyone arrives in search of something – a solution, a best practice, a new skill, a decision, a fresh perspective, an action plan or a break from routine.
