CIBSE promotes the career of building services engineers in a number of ways, such as approving work-based training programmes, including the Geberit CPD ‘Embedding acoustics into design’. Providing a technical insight and definition of ‘noise’ and its causes, the CPD covers current British Standards relating to limiting bathroom sound. The CPD also gives insight into Geberit’s thorough approach to noise reduction which starts with good design and ends with appropriate product choices and correct installation techniques.
The training, offered free of charge, helps architects, specifiers and M&E contractors understand the problem of noisy bathrooms, the importance of taking a holistic approach to minimising it and the most suitable products available to create a quiet bathroom that doesn’t impact on adjoining rooms.
The official CIBSE approval means the Geberit acoustics CPD module can be delivered as part of the Continuous Professional Development of Consultants, Chartered Engineers and Engineering Technicians.
