Ventilated Facades and Fibre Cement Materials
Gain a deeper understanding into the history and application of fibre cement facade materials with EQUITONE's CPD presentation. Australian Institute of Architects accredited, the course delves into the history of fibre cement and uncovers the latest innovations in ventilated facade systems. We outline the different textures, colours and expressive surfaces and also look at the numerous approaches to internal and external design applications through a presentation of completed projects in Australia.
Formal CPD Points: 1
At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:
• Explain the history and evolution of Fibre Cement as a façade
• Recognise the characteristics of a through coloured Fibre Cement material
• Identify the features of Ventilated Facades
• Recognise the design possibilities of Fibre Cement facades today
