Principal Designer

TFT shares its knowledge at the recent London CPD seminar

TFT’s London office recently hosted an extensive CPD seminar providing an update on a range of topics. An introduction to the new RICS Guidance Note for Dilapidations was covered, as well as a reminder about the mandatory RICS requirement for Ethics and Professional Standards. The uncertainty over the Principal Designer role was clarified and a timely recap about the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard was provided. Some common building defects in 1960’s structures were defined and the broad-ranging session ended with an animated session on body language and its role in negotiations. The topics were presented by senior TFT personnel who shared their insights with the delegates.

TFT can provide CPD training on a range of subjects, either as in-house sessions or at a range of locations throughout the UK. Contact Ashley Morris at to discuss your requirements.
