Geobear is an international organisation that provides solutions and treatment for ground that is experiencing subsidence or instability.This CPD event will cover:
Principles of slab stabilisation and polymer ground engineeringThe basics of how geopolymer resin injection works for the stabilisation of ground experiencing subsidence. Comparisons with alternative ground engineering strategies. We look at how our method compares with more traditional stabilisation methods, such as underpinning, and outline the advantages of non-disruptive injection stabilisation.
Geobear methods of applicationWe will then talk about the different situations in which the Geobear method is used and exactly how it can be applied to different situations.
An overview of Geobear technologiesWe talk about the technologies we employ for re-levelling, void filling, creating pile foundations, correcting subsidence and more.
Suitability – appropriate ground conditionsWe will also talk about what ground is suitable for geopolymer resin injection treatment.
Metrotile Lightweight Roofing originated in New Zealand over 40 years ago and is a leading supplier of lightweight steel roofing, from small conservatories to large scale new build projects.The concept is deceptively simple – press roof tiles from a highly durable, modern material (in this case, the highest quality steel), galvanise with an aluminium, magnesium and zinc (ZAM) compound and cover with a stone-chip coating. This CPD event will cover:
- Roofing problems and solutions
- Vandalism problems and solutions
- Burglary problems and solutions
- Enhanced security
- Profile choices
- Whole life cost
- Health and safety
- Environmental and enhanced Eco Points

This CPD will focus on the NovaBrik® mortarless brick system which provides the ideal cladding solution for everything from residential housing and apartments to commercial projects and extensions.
The versatility of NovaBrik® means it lends itself equally well to timber frame, steel frame, concrete panel, conventional block wall, innovative ICF systems, as well as insulated panels.
NovaBrik®'s interlocking design prevents water from penetrating the wall from the outside and the mortarless construction promotes air flow in the wall cavity, thus removing any moisture coming from the inside. The water-absorption of the high-strength concrete composition is less than 5%, ensuring exceptional resistance to freeze-thaw cycles.
Marshalls CPM is the market leader in landscaping products and above ground drainage. The acquisition of the CPM Group last year strengthened Marshalls position in the ability to provide both above and below ground drainage solutions.This CPD event will cover what the company produces in the water management sector such as sealed manhole systems, concrete pipes, attenuation tanks, retaining wall systems.
Designing, detailing and then installing the right kind of movement joints correctly, is vital for all types of buildings and civil engineering structures, as problems arising from joints create a hugely disproportionate amount of building repair, retrofit and refurbishment costs.The latest CPD, sponsored by NCC-Emseal, will outline the different types of movement joints involved in building and civil engineering structures and the requirements on them, which is frequently not just to accommodate the anticipated levels of movement, but also to ensure water tightness and fire resistance, as well as many other demands according to their location and function. This CPD is intended to highlight these different requirements and the alternative methods and solutions for meeting them, especially for wider joints and joints with high movement requirements that historically have been the most difficult and expensive to accommodate. This CPD will be of benefit for building, structures and facilities owners, their architects and design consultants, surveyors and property developers, as well as main contractors and facilities maintenance managers, because the damage and issues arising from inadequate or failing movement joints can and does affect everyone involved in all types of projects.
