ECOBUILDPREVIEW LOOKING FORWARD TO A REPEAT SHOWING Having enjoyed a successful event at last year’s Ecobuild, Synseal will be returning to the ExCeL exhibition centre in London’s Docklands for Ecobuild 2014, taking place on 4th-6th March. The objective will be to demonstrate how Synseal PVC-U window profiles have been designed to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, including multi-chambered designs and plastic thermal reinforcement (PTR) specification options for Legend, SynerJy and Shield systems. Featured at the show on stand N108 will be high performance insulated triple glass units which, when configured with Synseal multi-chamber profiles can deliver a U-value of 0.7W/m2K, a window constructed of 100% recycled PVC-U material, and a popular Evolve vertical sliding sash – often specified for newbuild market applications and projects in conservation areas – which has been designed to make it easier for contractors to construct energy efficient homes with traditional good looks. Synseal’s exhibition team at Ecobuild 2014 will be headed up by Bruce Manning, the New Build Business Development Manager, and Brian Walker, the Fabricator Development Manager, both of who are experienced commercial specification sales specialists. To read more, visit “THE IDEAL PLATFORM FOR GETTING BEHIND THE GREEN DEAL” Stand: N620/21 Paul Joyner, Director of Sustainability for the Travis Perkins Group, has stated that the leading exhibition, Ecobuild, presents the ideal opportunity for installers, contractors, and industry peers to unite and get behind the Green Deal. Following the Government’s recent dilution of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS), a division of the Travis Perkins Group, is stressing the importance of supporting the Green Deal and recognising the positive work completed since its launch at the start of 2013. Paul commented: “The Green Deal has been widely criticised in the tabloid press, mainly due to the time it has taken for consumers to sign up to the initiative, but demand has been vast; more than 100,000 Green Deal assessments are testament to that. This hugely ambitious scheme is now reliant on the industry coming together and taking responsibility for moving it forward. “Ecobuild is the ideal platform for the Travis Perkins Group to demonstrate its own support of the Green Deal whilst communicating the services that SBS has developed to assist contractors looking to take advantage of the scheme.” TAKING SUSTAINABILITY EVEN FURTHER At this year’s Ecobuild, Internorm will be offering visitors to its stand, including housebuilders, self builders, local authority specifiers and architects,
