If ever there was a time when the membership of a leading professional association in any industry is invaluable, it’s now, explain the Steel Window Association (SWA).
It says that leading professional associations are the source of independent, comprehensive advice when members are busy trying to optimise and amend operations during challenging times.
The SWA is busier than ever now and there are plenty of good reasons why a manufacturer or associate should become a member.
As well as having access to the latest product developments within the industry, members also receive info from organisations such as The Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) and the Construction Products Association (CPA) and during the current COVID-19 crisis, SWA members are being kept up to date with information from these top sources.
The GGF issues daily updates that give members guidance within the housing, construction and building maintenance industries – including the job retention scheme, small business grants, deferred VAT payments and business rates holidays. The SWA receives these updates and immediately forwards them to members.
The CPA has set up a dedicated Coronavirus web page for members to access directly and issues weekly updates with industry news, industry responses to the crisis; along with the latest housing and economic statistics as they are changing on a daily basis.
Everyone at the Steel Window Association and all of its members hopes everyone stays safe and well during this tough time.
There are a range of initiatives that are encouraging manufacturers and specifiers to think about how they work and the products they use – one manufacturer championing these is Danish wood wool panel manufacturer Troldtekt.Posted in Articles, Building Industry News, Building Products & Structures, Building Regulations & Accreditations, Building Systems, Research & Materials Testing, Sustainability & Energy Efficiency, Timber Buildings and Timber Products, Walls, Wooden products
