It was definitely a fitting way to mark the 10th anniversary of the world’s largest sustainability show for the built environment, and we’re so eager to do it all again that we’ve already booked in for Ecobuild 2015.
We met loads of great people during the event, both at our stand and walking around the extensive exhibition area (which was so large it could take several hours to do one lap of the exhibit).
Flowcrete UK’s GREEN Floorzone stand attracted a lot of attention, which kept us very busy answering questions and fielding inquiries, with interested visitors ranging from local developers and project managers to government representatives from halfway around the world! The centrepiece of the stand was a cut-through model of the Floorzone package which allowed visitors to quickly understand each element of the solution, how it could be tailored to specific projects and how each component works together.
One of the event’s biggest names seemed to take a particular interest in our Isocrete Green Screeds. The Channel 4 Presenter Kevin McCloud, who was part of a seminar at Ecobuild called “Better homes for less”, has this week nominated our Isocrete Green Screeds to be one of his Green Heroes at May’s Grand Design Live – which needless to say we’re very excited about.
The Isocrete Green Screed range is an integral part of the GREEN Floorzone, as it consists of screeds that have been given an eco-friendly makeover to remove all Ordinary Portland Cement and to source 40% of the material from recycled construction industry waste.
Along with Kevin McCloud there was a long list of VIPs from the world of sustainable construction that took to the many stages, lecture stands, debating circles and seminar spaces to make important announcements, to discuss today’s critical issues and impart valuable insights.
One of the most prominent speakers was the Secretary of State Edward Davey, who talked about how the Government proposes to improve two of its key energy policies, in particular the Energy Company Obligation, to make energy efficiency real and relevant to people’s everyday lives.
