LONDON, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Jewson, the UK's leading supplier of sustainable timber and building materials, will be taking a stand at Ecobuild 2012 to talk to customers about the importance of taking a 'fabric first' approach when faced with building new and renovating existing properties, using sustainable products and building methods.
With Government policies such as the Green Deal coming into play in 2012, the Jewson stand will take its theme from its training options available at the Greenworks Training Academy. Developed by Jewson and its sister brands, Graham, Gibbs & Dandy and Minster, Greenworks provides training and consultancy support on a variety of sustainable solutions via e-learning and practical multi-disciplinary courses.
To demonstrate this, computer portals will feature on the stand to allow visitor's to access the Greenworks e-Learning Gateway. Information will also be available on Jewson's new Ask Jack App and website facility, which is designed to make sense of sustainability for construction professionals.
"At Jewson we have long championed issues of sustainability and believe that as one of the leading merchants in the UK it is our role to educate our customers on the importance of getting back to basics and making good the fabric of a building before extending their thinking to renewable systems," commented Malcolm Gough, Market Director for Sustainable Solutions at Jewson. "We're very excited about Ecobuild 2012 and our presence reflects our continued commitment to sustainable building products and our drive to help deliver the green building agenda."
Visitors to the Jewson stand will be able to collect a free copy of the new Sustainable Building Solutions Pack, which includes a copy of the Jewson Sustainable Building Guide and the Greenworks Training Prospectus.
