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

The Saint-Gobain Build Better Roadshow is travelling around the country to help meet the demand in construction upskilling. Each Build Better Roadshow will provide local construction professionals the opportunity to undergo the vital upskilling 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 airtightness 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.

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 upskilling programs for design professionals and tradespersons working within the
construction sector. Since its launch in 2010, the Saint-Gobain Technical Academy has trained and upskilled over 10,000+ industry professionals free of charge.
