and CPD

Our Lintel specification team deliver CPD presentations which have been designed with architects and specifiers in mind, to educate and inform on steel lintels and how lintel specification can help to achieve unique shapes and affect the thermal efficiency of buildings. Our CPDs can be presented virtually or in person if social distancing can be adhered to.
