As part of this year’s Guild of Bricklayers National Final, Wienerberger has hosted several demonstrations showcasing the construction benefits of its clay block walling system, Porotherm.
The demonstration, which took place at Petroc College in Barnstaple, was attended by an assortment of local builders, contractors, college students and lecturers.
Wienerberger’s Kevin McGowan outlined the benefits of building with the company’s Porotherm system. As Site Liaison Manager for Porotherm, Kevin was able to provide an overview of the product, its easy-to-use nature and strong hold.
Since its introduction to the UK in 2008, Porotherm has been used in many projects as an alternative to traditional masonry, concrete blocks and both timber and lightweight steel frames. Designed to offer swift daily output, the product can bring cost and timesaving benefits to a construction project or build.
Wienerberger’s demonstration was hosted as part of a trade fair, held in association with the Guild of Bricklayers competitions. The company benefits from a strong relationship with the Guild; it has been involved with the sponsorship of its competitions at a regional level for several years.
The demonstration sparked interest among the students and local builders in attendance and has resulted in a number of enquiries.
