    Ecobuild 2012

    Ecobuild, the world’s leading event for sustainable design and construction, and the largest construction event of any kind in the UK, was held in London last month.  Among the high profile guests were Members of Parliament Alan Johnson and Jack Straw, former MP and television personality Michael Portillo, and other well known television hosts Jonathan Dimbleby, Janet Street Porter and Monty Don.

    Some of the highlights of the show included the ‘Practical Installer’, which gave live demonstrations on how to install micro-renewable technologies, ‘Fabric First’ which showed viewers how to use different building fabrics and interact them with each other, and ‘Renew’, which gave advice on obtaining a highly efficicent, energy saving building.  The show had over 1,500 exhibitors, 130 free seminars and dozens of live attractions and live demonstrations, making it the biggest Ecobuild ever.

    The event was attended by over 57,000 visitors over the 3 day period, and was hailed a huge success by both visitors and exhibitors.

    As readers of our blog, you’ll know we like to keep a close eye on eco-friendly and renewable developments in the construction area, so hearing and reading about advances that we might use ourselves in concrete driveways is great!
