The seminar programme will be held alongside the Home & Interiors Show which is an annual event focusing on high quality products and services for the home.

The morning is credited with 30 professional development points and it will also give Architects a complimentary access to the exhibition after the seminar.

Metalcraft – Roof Drainage 

Presenter: Frances Charles

This presentation will provide an understanding on how the NZMRM calculation tools were developed. Erequires a 2% probability that flooding will occur within a building. This differs from the rainfall intensities of E2/AS1 which are based on 10% probability. The NZMRM code of practice has been updated and a new easy roof drainage calculation tool has been developed making it easier to determine the maximum catchment area for specific gutter designs. Internal, external and downpipes are covered in this tool and it is based on 2% probability. Frances Charles will discuss these requirements and how the roof drainage tool works.
