Jewson Launch Sustainable Building Guide

posted 16.11.2010
Construction Materials supplier Jewsons have launched a free Sustainable Building Guide.

The free guide will be 62 pages and will give basic information on current legislation as well as upcoming legislation that will affect the construction industry. It will also include government incentives and sustainable products and practices.

Speaking at the launch at BRE, Watford, Peter Hindle MBE, managing director of Jewson said: "The key to greening our buildings is to give our clients the advice, support and training they need to build more sustainably".

BRE chief executive Peter Bonfield said: "Builders' merchants have an important role in ensuring customers make the right choices."

On top of that Jewson is expected to open its Greenworks Training Academy in just under a month. The academy will be kitted out with rooms set for wet and dry work, an elevated drainage pit and low level roofing rig.

Recipro are very pleased with the commitment Jewson has shown to being sustainable as a lot of emphasis has to be on the construction materials supplier to ensure a sustainable construction industry and they should also ensure materials are not recycled before used or thrown to landfill by supporting Recipro and giving their customers a way of sourcing builders surplus and supply.
