Design Assistance

You are faced with a deadline and are concerned about the proper detailing of a copper batten seam roofing system. While understanding the basics of copper, you need more information on material availability, cleating, seam dimensions, and slope requirements. You soon realize that
many standard architectural references do not provide in-depth details of copper architectural systems and installation techniques. While you
and your client are sold on the natural beauty of copper and its advantageous life cycle cost profile, you simply need more information to
convince the others on your project team.

The CCBDA provides design and detailing support to architects and designers on request. This includes the review of details, specifications,
and drawings of copper applications. It also allows us to keep you informed of new developments in the copper industry while discussing real world applications.



This service is available free-of-charge and covers all copper, brass, and bronze architectural applications. If you have a question about
roofing, cladding, gutters, interiors, finishes, or any other copper application, please contact us. You can e-mail your question Here, or
contact us toll-free at 877.640.0946. You can also fax your question, or drawings and details to 416.391.3823. If required, site or office visits
can be arranged to review proposals or installation details.

Please keep in mind that design assistance requests are subject to some travel limitations, and requests are grouped to allow a period of
activity in one city to minimize travel costs. Exceptions can be made because of circumstances, so please feel free to contact us regarding
your requirements.
