I had a very enjoyable day at the NEC on Tuesday, attending the UK Construction Week event to see the latest innovations and trends in the building and retrofit world.
Highlights included some very good talks on the future of industry training and another on why we can't afford not to pay for retrofit of the existing housing stock - the costs of doing nothing are too high for the environment.
On the kit side, there were some interesting new products being launched. A British made alternative to brick, made from green waste, caught my eye. Also, an excellent French made lightweight wall filler with the unfortunate name of Semin. I fear something may have been lost in translation and a UK rebranding may be in order.
At the Eco end of the market there were a couple of electric radiator and water heater manufacturers showing the latest high efficiency products, and a British made insulation batt made from recycled material that I will definitely be looking at further.
