Energy and Climate Change team deliver demonstrations at new academy

  • 1 Oct 2014

Members of DECC observed demonstrations and installations of internal and external wall insulation, including systems from British Gypsum, Celotex, Isover and Weber.

The Saint-Gobain Technical Academies are designed to address the skills shortage within the construction industry and improve the existing housing stock by providing technical training and providing advice on building solutions.

Tutors work to ensure that new and existing trade professionals are of the highest standard, trained on innovative and sustainable systems and have the opportunity to use technologies developed by Saint-Gobain.

The systems that Saint-Gobain manufacture are designed to demonstrate how measures, such as wall insulation, form part of a whole house retrofit that can provide a high level of energy efficiency and comfortability for residents.

Saint-Gobain are supplying to a variety of the Green Deal Communities schemes and deliver training and support to companies to ensure that the highest quality of service is being adhered to.
