MAPEI conducts themed monthly training workshops for construction practitioners and developers.

MAPEI, the leading global manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for buildings, is currently conducting themed monthly training sessions for construction developers and practitioners at its new fully-equipped training facility within its Dubai Investments Park premises.

The theme for the March workshop was ‘A Specification-led Approach to Concrete Repair’, covering topics such as understanding the causes of concrete deterioration, concrete repair options; typical concrete problems; MAPEI’s solutions; and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP).

This complemented the training sessions held over the previous months that covered subjects such as understanding the causes of problems associated with ceramic tiles and stone installation; and selecting the right materials and application methods by understanding new standards. Such sessions are vital to providing construction professionals with the right blend of hard and soft skills to deal with issues faced in complex construction projects. The monthly training adds to MAPEI’s other learning initiatives for consultants and architects. The workshop themes will be rotated throughout the year, with the April workshop set to focus on flooring.

“Our training sessions reflect our commitment to going a step further and reaching out to our customers. Instead of just simply selling our products, we want to help users capitalize on the properties and benefits of our offerings by teaching them proper installation and product care, in addition to giving them a better understanding about various aspects of our building line. We invite our partners, clients, and construction practitioners to avail of our specialized sessions,” said Stefano Iannacone, Managing Director, IBS-MAPEI.

MAPEI’s new training facility will be regularly hosting sessions for general product range training and in-depth demonstrations of solutions to conventional and exceptional construction environments.

MAPEI offers a comprehensive range of adhesives and sealants for installing ceramic, natural stone and other finishes such as wooden, PVC and sports flooring. The company has been involved in some of the most challenging construction projects in the UAE, including the Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa, Emirates Palace Hotel, the Grand Mosque, Qasr El Sarab resort, Atlantis Hotel on Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, Ferrari World and Dubai International Airport’s Terminals 1, 2 and 3.

MAPEI recently relocated its offices to Dubai Investment Park (DIP), where the company already has a 40,000 m2 manufacturing facility.
