UK energy solution, building site noise dangers & fighting false alarms
Travelling on the London Underground regularly and couldn’t help noticing a massive poster campaign telling us that Offshore Wind Works’ and is the key to self-sustaining energy in the UK. We are already the world leader in offshore wind, with more capacity in operation than the rest of the world combined.

I have tinnitus so a new infographic on deafness and tinnitus caused by excessive noise on building sites caught my eye. Litigation on this is becoming more common too so do take a look.
Talking of noise, one of my pet hates is false alarms from cars and buildings. So I welcome AlarmCalm from Advanced which offers a solution.
Buildingtalk announces its support for Bounce Back, a great charity that helps ex-offenders gain painting and decorating skills and jobs. They have dramatically reduced the re-offending rate which is good news them and for the community.
And a final reminder to register for Timber Expo at the NEC next week, especially the highly successful Buyers & Specifiers Forum.
