Square 4 Solar CPD programme
The Square 4 Solar CPD programme explores industry updates, legislation changes, and educates construction professionals on Solar PV best practice.
Each session is dedicated to sharing our wealth of experience and knowledge of Solar PV to help you to make informed choices for your building projects.
All our CPDs are designed and delivered by a member of the SQ4S technical team and can be delivered face to face or virtually based on your requirements.

From Specification to Energy Generation
The race to net zero has pushed renewable energy sources higher up the specification agenda. However, when it comes to building design, solutions are often considered too late in the process to deliver maximum impact.
This CPD equips specifiers with the knowledge and skills required to understand what an efficient and compliant solar PV design looks like.

With recent changes to Approved Document L driving increased market demand for solar PV, understanding a range of solar PV solutions that are available to the commercial sector is more important than ever.
This CPD explores the role of bioSOLAR in the race to net-zero, the benefits of direct to roof installation compared to traditional mounted methods as well as how to plan a seamless installation. It will also cover system design and maintaining performance over time.
More than M&E
As an electrical installation, Solar PV is commonly detailed in the M&E package. However, for seamless project progression and optimal system performance, the design of commercial Solar PV should be considered from planning. This CPD explores the role of Solar PV in modern buildings, examines best practice on how to integrate systems into M&E design and offers guidance on how to manage interfacing between trades and site sequencing.
The CPD also explores the differences between retrofit and new build projects, sharing industry guidance on how to manage these to successful commissioning and handover.
