Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow Coming to Galway, Waterford and Limerick

Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow Coming to Galway, Waterford and Limerick

Kieran Holohan, Marketing Director of Saint-Gobain Ireland, has announced that the Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow will travel to Galway (25th June), with Waterford and Limerick following in October and November. The announcement follows the success of the first two Build Better Roadshows which took place in Belfast on 3rd April, 2019 and in Cork on 14th May 2019.

The Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow will travel around the country over the next few months to help meet the demand in construction up-skilling. Each Build Better Roadshow will provide  local construction professionals the opportunity to undergo the vital up-skilling needed to meet the requirements of today’s sustainable building agenda, earn CPD points on Fire Safety Compliance and Sustainable Housing, and learn about new Saint-Gobain products coming to market.

Each Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow will be divided into a morning and afternoon seminar, featuring a host of expert guest speakers. The seminars will help bring architects, engineers and builders up to speed on a variety of current subject matters, from the most recent changes to Fire Regulations Part B to upcoming energy regulations such as nZEB. The seminars will also cover a variety of site performance issues such as air tightness detailing and best practice for acoustic performance. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to view an official products launch and get a first look at a whole range of new Gyproc and ISOVER products. The new products come from the Acoustic Ceilings, OneCoat plaster, and InLiner Board ranges. These free seminars are suitable for all construction professionals working in the residential and commercial sector.

On display will also be new systems that will help achieve compliance to all the latest standards as well as the accompanying guidance on how to specify and install these systems correctly.

Saint-Gobain has demonstrated its commitment to addressing the rising skills shortage in the construction industry through its Technical Academy which offers free, day-long up-skilling programs for design professionals and tradespersons working within the construction sector. Since its launch in 2010, the Saint-Gobain Technical Academy has trained and up-skilled over 10,000+ industry professionals free of charge.

Kieran Holohan commented: “The Build Better Roadshow has been developed to address the rising skills shortage in Ireland. The industry is under exceptional pressure to up-skill and Saint-Gobain is dedicated to leading the progression of best practice within the sector through our new Better Build Roadshow and our Technical Academy. We look forward to offering more events nationwide this year to help meet the demand for construction up-skilling”
