Location: Nottingham      Date: 09 May 2018




You are invited to attend our brand new CPD seminar on Rules for Masonry Reinforcement that we are hosting at The Thrumpton Hall on Wednesday, 09 May 2018. You can have a bite to eat, network with fellow like-minded professionals and be given an introduction to our products and systems.


Topic Overview


Target has been working with structural engineers, building surveyors, architects, aboriculturists and many more professionals to provide unique structural solutions since 1997.

Interpreting Cracks
Cracks can manifest themselves in many different directions, shapes and sizes as a result of the properties of masonry and the forces imposed upon it.


Causes of Cracking
Cracks are often the result of of material defects, design flaws and external influences. The repair solution will vary depending on the cause of the cracking.


The Design Philosophy
Whilst standard "off the shelf" guidance is readily available, causes - and subsequently repairs - are often more complex than guidance can cover. By considering the lowest possible level of complexity at each stage, a complex design can be systematically compiled.


Practical Application

Many theoretical propositions work perfectly on paper. Buildings aren't founded on paper, and the theory needs to be applicable on site - even in the rain.

Construction Solutions
​Target has been manufacturing materials for structural repair solutions for over 20 years​. We have amassed a wealth of knowledge spanning many domains within our narrow field. We take pride in offering a complete solution, from advice and guidance to surveying, design work and installation. Combining these elements ensures unity across the board.
