Each Build Better Roadshow provides local construction professionals with the opportunity to undergo the vital upskilling needed to meet the requirements of today’s sustainable building agenda, earn CPD points on fire safety compliance and sustainable housing, and learn about new Saint-Gobain products coming to market.
Each roadshow is divided into a morning and afternoon seminar, featuring a host of expert guest speakers. The seminars help bring architects, engineers and builders up to speed on a variety of current subject matters, from the most recent changes to fire regulations (Part B) to new energy regulations such as NZEB. The seminars will cover a variety of site performance issues such as airtightness detailing and best practice for acoustic performance. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to get a first look at a whole range of new Gyproc and Isover products. These free seminars are suitable for all construction professionals working in the residential and commercial sector.
Since its launch in 2010, Saint-Gobain’s Technical Academy has trained and upskilled over 10,000+ industry professionals free of charge. “The industry is under exceptional pressure to upskill and Saint-Gobain is dedicated to leading the progression of best practice within the sector through our new Build Better Roadshow and our Technical Academy,” said Kieran Holohan of Saint-Gobain Ireland.
