Delegates Review Fire Issues at Promat Fire Day

A wide range of construction professionals gathered at Ascot Racecourse recently where Promat UK successfully hosted its fourth Fire Day seminar.

At the event, called ‘Making your project our business’, attendees observed presentations on topics including steel protection, the use of glass in architectural design, and the role of social media in the construction market. 

Fire Day 2014Chaired by the Chief Executive Officer for ASFP, Wilf Butcher, attendees had the opportunity to evaluate the current state of the market, examine areas for improvement and find ways to develop and enhance the market in the future. A new ‘White Paper’ on structural steel protection was also launched at the event by Promat. This is now available for free download from the Promat website, at www.promat.co.uk/steel-fire-protection 
  
Speakers at the event included Peter Caplehorn RIBA, Deputy Chief Executive and Policy Director of the Construction Products Association, Su Butcher of social media specialists, Just Practising, Howard Passey, Commercial Director of the FPA, and Promat’s own Business Development Director, Ian Cowley. 
 
“The purpose of the Fire Day was to share new ways to minimise the constant and ongoing threat that fire poses” explains Promat’s Ian Cowley. “The event offered the perfect opportunity for our diverse range of attendees to thoroughly consider the many aspects of fire protection and how the industry should address them. The Fire Day was a great success and we are really pleased with the response we have had to it.”
 
The event also raised £450 for Cancer Research UK, from the charity prize draw which gave attendees the chance to win a variety of prizes, including Kindles, iPads, and dinner for two at the Shard restaurant in London.
