Is triple glazing as good for the environment as it is claimed, once the impact of its materials and processes is considered? Paul Hicks, ACIAT of VELUX looks at its performance and its environmental and financial impact.
It’s generally accepted that architects and architectural technologists are some of the most time-poor professions within any industry.
Partly to blame for this is the enormous amount of research that goes into vital design and construction decisions during a project.
We speak with a lot of specifiers, and we have regularly been told that the product research process can often take up to 10% of a total project, which adds up to a whole lot hours which normally fall under ‘unbilled’ and take away from other parts of the project.
Today we’re having a quick look at 5 ways SpecifiedBy can help improve a specifiers efficiency whilst actually improving the quality and depth of the research being carried out.
Last month we announced that we would be publishing our site stats on a monthly basis.
We've just finished updating May's report, which is now available to download.
This week CIMCIG hosted a seminar “Death of Journalism” which looked at how journalism has changed as a result of the internet delivering massive amounts of information for us to access - much of which we expect to get for free. We heard from journalists how this has impacted on the way publications operate and are funded.
We're delighted to announce our new partnership with The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).
The CIAT's support of SpecifiedBy means we will work closely with the organisation and its members to develop and improve our services to specifiers working within the construction industry.
A big part of what we do at SpecifiedBy is about trying to provide helpful, educational content. One topic that falls under this is digital marketing for building product manufacturers, and specifically how performance is measured.
So we’ve decided to take the step of making all of our site metrics publicly available on a monthly basis.
When it comes to targeting architects and specifiers and choosing the right marketing tools, tactics and channels, there's probably no better tool in the marketing toolbox than a CPD presentation.
At EcoBuild this year, Richard Lee, managing director at Jablite, was on a panel to discuss ‘Maximising Building Performance – could manufacturers do more?’
