Technical meetings

The regional technical meetings are free to attend and a great opportunity for technical staff to get the latest sector updates, network with colleagues and get expert tips and best practice advice from the event sponsors. 

New for 2019 - We will be hosting Technical Officer meetings at every English OTAC conference in an exciting new partnership.

OTAC (Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conferences) are held across the country and will give Technical Officers the chance to meet dozens of manufacturers and suppliers, mingle with OT colleagues and get the latest technical updates from Foundations.

Supported once again by Contour Showers, these events are a great way to keep up to date and network.

Foundations Agenda

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.
