Overall Aim of course: to provide students with knowledge and understanding of the principles of reinforced bitumen
membrane technology including other relevant ancillary components so that they can:
      Identify the specific design criteria applicable to different system types.
      Identify relevant product characteristics applicable to different system types.
      Interpret results of wind load calculation and apply to design of attachment.
      Identify appropriate fasteners and/or adhesives taking account of safety factors.
      Interpret results of SAP/SBEM calculation and apply to hygrothermal design.
      Select appropriate details to suit common interface, penetration and termination situations.
      Identify appropriate sealants and flashings.
      Identify components and take off quantities from drawings and schedules.
      Identify and plan the use of protection during construction and service.
      Evaluate options for refurbishment and upgrading of various existing roof systems.
      Communicate to end users the appropriate maintenance regimes for different systems.
