It will explain the advantages and problems with slate and clarify the difference between slates from around the world.

The presentation will inform delegates of the variety of applications for Welsh Slate and provide information on the standards, accreditations, classifications and fixing methods.

At the end of the presentation each delegate will have a good understanding of how Welsh Slate can be used as a building material.



RIBA has approved for CPD accreditation our tour of the Penrhyn Quarry and factory to provide you with the slate making experience.

You will be able to appreciate first-hand the challenging working environment and the difficulties of working a natural product to provide arguably the best natural slate in the world.

You will see why Penrhyn Quarry has prevailed for many centuries and how modern methods of manufacturing are being applied whilst retaining the sense of history and the traditional values of loyalty, commitment and the highest quality.
