Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, the leader in the sustainable habitat and construction materials markets, is returning to Ecobuild 2017 (7-9 March) as sponsor of the City Hall seminar theatre and to launch its UK Homes, Health & Wellbeing Report.
Headline findings from the Feel Good: Live Well, The UK Home, Health and Wellbeing Report, show that 90% of homeowners and renters want a home that doesn’t compromise their health and wellbeing, while almost 30% would be prepared to pay more for a home that doesn’t compromise their health and wellbeing. The full report, a detailed survey study of 3,000 homeowners and renters in the UK, will be available to download at www.multicomfort.co.uk from 7th of March.
As part of the launch, Saint-Gobain will be hosting a roundtable at Ecobuild, including participation from Redrow, Barratt, Kier Living and NHBC, to discuss the report’s key findings. John Alker, Campaign and Policy Director at UKGBC will be chairing the roundtable.
Mike Chaldecott, General Delegate and Regional Managing Director for Construction Products at Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, commented: “Ecobuild is an important event in our calendar, as it’s a place for the industry to come together to discuss key issues and showcase innovation. In particular, our sponsorship of the City Hall sustainability seminar stream is an opportunity to bring important sustainability topics to the forefront and create a dialogue with industry experts.”
Stacey Temprell, Habitat Marketing Director at Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, said: “Ecobuild is the ideal event to launch the findings of the Feel Good: Live Well, The UK Home, Health and Wellbeing Report, as the results will be of key interest to the construction industry. We look forward to sharing this data with industry experts, using collaboration and the exchange of ideas, through the roundtable, to add further value to the results. This research has given us an insight into what the public expect from our homes, which are buildings that contribute to our overall health and wellbeing.”
In addition to the report launch, Saint-Gobain will also exclusively share performance data for Bartholomew Barn, Saint-Gobain’s first Multi Comfort building in the UK. Saint-Gobain launched the Multi Comfort building concept in 2015, and the Bartholomew Barn building, part of King’s School, Worcester, opened in 2016. The first round of performance data will be presented on a daily basis, from 12.45 to 1.15pm, on the Celotex stand (C143).
The City Hall seminar theatre will host a series of seminars, debates and practical sessions on sustainability. Saint-Gobain, as main sponsor, will be participating in sessions focusing on carbon emissions in the built environment, skills, training and products for retrofit and refurbishment, and the benefits of green homes.
