As every construction professional knows a detailed specification for a project is extremely important, ensuring design drawings have the detailed supporting documentation that is just not practical to list on architectural drawings. A good specification ensures compliance with design intent allowing suppliers to provide accurate pricing by removing the guesswork from the tendering process. Above all ensuring the building or space is delivered in accordance with expectations.

RIBA, via NBS Plus has standardized the specification process allowing architects a menu driven process developed in conjunction with manufacturers. All HDI Railing Systems product specifications are available in NBS format and are located on the NBS Plus platform

If you are an architect or designer responsible for specifying balustrades and railing systems HDI Railing Systems would like to offer a no cost or obligation RIBA CPD course approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), “An Introduction to the Process of Designing Guardrails and Handrails”

The aim of this seminar is to educate architects and design professionals on the important design principles concerning balustrades and handrails. This CPD will provide a basic understanding of architectural railing designs, various material options and how to properly specify your balustrades. The focus will be on performance, the importance of structure for fixing, and standards and regulations.
