Foundations Technical meeting Agenda
Chester - 6th February 2019 

10:00 - 11:00 Technical Officer Forum

An open forum for Technical Officers to catch up on the latest news on building and surveying, discuss good practice and talk to others about burning issues. Includes a briefing on the technical implications of the DFG Review.

11:30 - 12:30 Contour Showers - Technical Briefing

The Contour Showers workshop will focus on how level & easy access showering can be easily achieved in the bathroom to enable people with mobility needs to access safe, independent showering. The presentation supports the benefits of creating level access showering using wetroom floor formers and shower trays as well as key considerations needed when specifying these solutions.

We will also be acquainting attendees with our latest easy access shower tray which has unrivalled characteristics for the bathroom adaptation sector.
