GRS Receives Overwhelming Response from Architects and Engineers Following Online CPD Presentation

CPD hosted on Friday, 12th of April 2024.


Specifying Techniques, in collaboration with Global Roofing Solutions (GRS), hosted a groundbreaking online Continuing Professional Development (CPD) presentation for Architects and Engineers on Friday, 12th April. The event, facilitated through Specifying Techniques' digital platform, aimed to connect industry professionals with the latest innovations in roofing solutions. Such was the interest in this event that online registration had to be closed two weeks in advance, with a remarkable 162 applications received for the limited 150 available slots.

The presentation was expertly delivered by Gerrit du Toit, National Projects and Specification Manager from GRS, offering a comprehensive Global Roofing Solutions Product Overview. This overview delved into the diverse applications and extensive benefits of GRS products, highlighting key offerings such as Klip-Tite, KL700 Plus clips, PV-Clamps, and walkways.

One of the standout features of this CPD presentation was its accreditation by both the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) and the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA). This accreditation not only underscores the quality and relevance of the content but also adds significant value to the professional development of attendees.


Addressing the core architectural challenges and industry requirements, the presentation showcased how GRS continuously enhances its product portfolio to meet evolving needs. Specifically, innovations like Klip-Tite and KL700 Plus clips, along with PV-Clamps and walkways, were spotlighted as solutions to pressing industry demands.


In an industry where reaching professionals through traditional marketing channels can be challenging, CPD presentations have emerged as a crucial avenue for engagement. They offer a unique opportunity for direct interaction with architects and engineering professionals, allowing GRS to demonstrate expertise and establish credibility within the industry.


GRS understands the importance of connecting with architects, recognising that they play a pivotal role in shaping architectural projects and specifications. By hosting successful CPD presentations, GRS leaves a lasting impression, increasing brand awareness and recognition among industry stakeholders.


Through these engagements, GRS not only showcases its innovative products but also positions itself as a thought leader, sharing in-depth knowledge of industry trends and best practices. This

demonstration of expertise instills confidence in architects and engineers, solidifying GRS's reputation as a trusted partner in roofing solutions.
