Eco-build is the biggest UK exhibition for sustainable design, construction and the built environment. Energy both generating and saving it was a prominent theme across the whole exhibition with numerous technology options on display by suppliers of PV, Solar and energy efficient boilers, heating and hot water systems.
Tony Billam, course tutor, has arranged a number of suppliers ie Grundfos, Nu-Heat and Speedfit to come into College to talk to our students and they will provide free samples of the latest designs of pumps and plastic push fits for the students to use in the Shireoaks workshops.
Students said they had a fantastic day out and the exhibition was very educational but so big that they would have liked to have attended the full 3 day event.
