Continuing Education at Parkin

Over the months of August and September, Parkin hosted a series of sessions entitled “Thermal Break” for its Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver offices.  Content ranged through various building science and spec-related topics.  These lectures are one aspect of Parkin’s continuing education program, ensuring that staff are kept abreast of industry related trends and the design-related sciences; it also helps to keep staff engaged with one another as a cohesive team,  while continuing to work from home.

At the end of the series, a survey was conducted to find out which topics were the most popular.  The Air and Vapour Control session was well received!

A shout out goes to Juste Fanou for presenting engaging and informative content!
