The National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM) is gradually increasing its exposure, according to its ‘daylight diary’ in the Daylighting Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine for architectural specifiers and technicians, building contractors and those interested in the provision of natural daylight within the built environment.
The association credits its growing membership base – which Sunsquare is now part of – and the consistent efforts of its marketing team for the increasing industry awareness of the association, giving NARM greater strength to make a genuine difference for its members and promoting daylight from above in architecture.
As a consequence of NARM’s increasing website visitors and social media following, the association has opted to make its Rooflighting CPD Seminar available on YouTube.
In 2016, NARM produced an online CPD Seminar titled ‘An Introduction to Daylighting with Rooflights’. The seminar is RIBA-accredited, resulting in double CPD points for all RIBA members that complete it. It has since been made available on NARM’s new YouTube channel for anyone interested in daylighting within the built environment.
What does NARM’s Rooflighting CPD Seminar entail?
The seminar lasts around half an hour and is entirely relevant to stages 0, 1 and 2 within the RIBA Plan of Work. The video applies to both residential and commercial projects and is designed to give specifiers a greater understanding of designing daylight into buildings using rooflights.
The key topics discussed during the seminar include:
- How rooflights can help to achieve the required light levels for usage in certain types of buildings
- The way rooflights can reduce energy usage and CO2 emissions simultaneously
- The benefits of daylight to the health and wellbeing of building occupants
- A guide to rooflight types
- A guide to glazing materials within rooflights
It is thought that the knowledge gained from this can then be used to inform rooflight design and specification across a range of sectors.
Sunsquare is delighted to be a member of NARM, giving the company the opportunity to work with the industry to drive forward rooflight design standards in terms of energy performance, safety and security.
