Attendee Testimonials

“Thanks to Jason for the informative CPD presentation about Breezway products and their compliance with the Australian Standards. Our team of architect will benefit greatly from this information. Highly recommended!”
Atlas Architects, VIC

“An informative session, good technical information related to real projects so it was very useful. Paul presented the information really well. Gained a better understanding of the relevant design standards and their application when it comes to designing louvre assemblies.”
Anonymous, QLD

“As a building designer I am very confident in specifying Breezeway products as I know they’re high quality and fit for purpose. I also appreciate the great service I’ve received when making enquiries about the product.”
Trevor, QLD

“I was most impressed with how much Breezway has advanced in the design of “Cooper Louvre” windows as they were known to me in the 1950’s. Sure, as an architect I have used the Breezway System many times, the quality and performance of the product is always excellent. Your presentation highlighted how far the design of the Breezway product had developed to comply with today’s needs of government legislation regarding fall protection, security – the Stronghold System, motor drive and inturn connection to a full automated system. Also, the double glazed louvre blade really “hit the nail on the head”, an excellent solution to help satisfy the BASIX requirements. ”
David, NSW

“Thanks Jason and Breezway for an informative and timely presentation on fall prevention. Very well communicated by Jason and served as an excellent overview of the BCA requirements and the attributes of Breezway Louvres generally. Of particular interest was a presentation of the Stronghold System with louvre blade retention.”
Robert, NSW

“Jason offered a great product presentation that was targeted to our specific requests and product queries. It worked great as a screen only rather than face to face presentation and we were guided though areas of the website to find the information we needed. Thanks.”
Peter, NSW

“Please thank Warren on our behalf for a very informative CPD presentation on Fall Prevention and Ventilation. We have had presentations by Breezway in the past and each time it has been really worthwhile in getting us up to speed on the issues presented.”
Chris, WA

“Breezway’s Jason Rocca presented an excellent CPD presentation on fall protection and ventilation. It was a thorough and informative session through Zoom. Will look forward to future webinars when they become available.”
Natalie, NSW

“I just wanted to say thank you again for the CPD presentation. The staff members that have attended both of your presentations have thoroughly enjoyed them. It’s hard to find good CPD presentations but I have to say you made it exceptionally enjoyable. You were easy to follow and concise.”
Stephanie, NSW

“Breezway provided a high quality CPD webinar on AS2047 and AS1288. It was very informative, well structured and moved through the information at a good pace. The presenter was obviously an expert on the subject. I appreciate any manufacturer that gives back to the industry like this.”
Gary, NSW

“My colleagues and I recently undertook the online continued professional development courses offered by Breezeway. Jason and the team are friendly, knowledgeable, and provided us with information that both showcased product capability and explained design and planning requirements – we look forward to work with the team on future projects.”
Nick, NSW

“They provided excellent material to demonstrate their understanding of the standards and communicated it in a clear and consistent manner. We would be happy to use Breezway as both a source of information and a supplier of window systems into the future.”
James, NSW

“I convene talks for the Inner West Architect’s Network and, over the past six months, we have had Jason from Breezway, present a series of three CDP talks on various technical issues related to glass and glass installation. The talks have been incredibly informative and useful to members of IWAN. The presentation is well prepared and structured, focusing on worthwhile learning outcomes. Many thanks,”
Howard, NSW
