RIBA CPD - Natural Phyllite - Natural Stone - Phyllite Flooring

SSQ phyllite flooring

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!

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.

SSQ Riverstone Phyllite – natural stone for flooring and claddingPhyllite – 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.

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.

Hand split, just like slate, phyllite has a slightly coarser grain and a unique satin-like lustre, making it the choice of the most discriminating architects across the world.

Our CPD is the only RIBA approved CPD for natural Phyllite. It will leave you fully equipped with everything you need, to know when and how to specify natural phyllite and delight your more discerning clients.
