AJ Specification Live is a new series of free monthly AJ events, in association with NLA, with afternoon talks providing in-depth information into design and specification, building materials and construction methods, followed by networking drinks.

Speakers will discuss:

  • the coordination of the structural and services engineering for The Crystal
  • architecturally integrated solutions to challenging projects such as the Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool
  • Canford School biology lab, a partly prefabricated  lightweight single-storey timber-framed pavilion
  • performance driven design and integration of structure and services at St Ambrose College, Manchester
  • the coordination between structural, MEP and architecture for Mayfield Secondary School, a full BIM project



  • This event is intended for architects involved in the design process, consultants, contractors and clients.
