REHAU has recently become a member of the Pretoria Institute of Architecture. The Pretoria Institute for Architecture (PIA) is a voluntary association, recognised by the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP), and is a ‘Regional Institute’ of the South African Institute of Architects.
The PIA has its origins in the Pretoria Architectural Society, which was founded in 1945 and was created to serve the interests of architects in the Pretoria area, to further good architecture and to care for Pretoria's unique architectural heritage.
In its desire to engage with architects on matters regarding South African building standards, REHAU will use the platforms offered by the Pretoria Institute of Architecture to make architects aware of support services on offer. Such support comes in the form of technical advice, specification guides, seminars, training workshops and hopefully (due soon) South Africa's first approved CPD course on uPVC windows.
“REHAU can support architects and specifiers at every stage of a project. Our services range from technical support (including CAD details and calculations), planning support, site surveys, field support and any project specific specification provision.”, says Tony O’Neill.
