Students visit Ecobuild 2015

On Thursday 5th March, Construction staff and students travelled to the Excel Arena in London to visit Ecobuild 2015.

The exhibition is in its 11th year of championing a greener built environment, with two large arenas with different themes running throughout them. Themes included; Championing the need for change in the way we interact with the environment and Nature and the Built Environment, which brought together a number of features to educate and inspire visitors.

Conferences, seminars and lots of exhibitors showcasing their products created a jam packed agenda for all attendees. The Practical Installer live arena was one of the most popular attractions of the exhibition. More than 14 suppliers provided live demonstrations to delegates, with a strong emphasis placed on explaining how installers can benefit from Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI). Demonstrations involved a number of real-life ‘before and after’ scenarios, which highlighted both the impact on a property’s energy efficiency and the economic benefits that result from the installation of specific products.
