The Only RIBA Approved CPD For Natural Phyllite by SSQ – The Saviours of the CPD

“Being a passionate specifier of Natural Stone, I was intrigued to find out more about Natural Phyllite. By the end of this seminar, I was pleasantly surprised to know that I had another genre to stone to add to my specification arsenal. If you like slate, then you’ll love phyllite!”

The Saviours of the CPD. Sounds like a bold claim, doesn’t it? Let me explain…

If you were to ask a hundred architects “what’s the worst thing about CPDs?” you’d hear one thing over and over. CPDs are BORING.

And it’s true. Some CPDs tend to be boring. Some, but not all.

SSQ CPDs are different. We believe that the CPD should be as fascinating and captivating as the architectural stone you’re building with.

We’re here to make sure that your CPD is anything but boring… that’s why you might call us the saviours of the CPD!

“We just had a very interesting CPD session with Murad, please thank him again for coming around.”

Danka Štefan, Clay Architecture Ltd

If the sandwiches were the best thing about the last CPD you attended, book an SSQ CPD. Don’t get me wrong, the sandwiches will be great, but the content will capture your imagination in a way you never thought possible.

Phyllite – Natural Stone for Flooring and Cladding CPD

Slate is formed when mudrock is buried deep beneath the earth’s surface and exposed to great pressure and temperatures that would make the mercury in your thermometer boil instantly. When you leave slate ‘in the oven’ for a little longer, it becomes phyllite.

Riverstone Phyllite – natural stone for flooring and cladding

Phyllite is the diamond of the slate world. Harder, denser and stronger than slate, it is a perfect stone for flooring and cladding, as well as roofing.

With only a handful of sources known worldwide, commercially accessible phyllite stone is rare.
