Jewson green guide launches

Published:  16 November, 2010

COVENTRY: Jewson has published a guide to sustainable building to explain key products, solutions, incentives and legislation for newbuild and refurbishment projects.

Peter Hindle, Jewson managing director, said: "Education is fundamental to the success of the green building agenda and Jewson has such a diverse and extensive customer base in the UK, we recognise the valuable contribution we can make by providing manageable advice on the latest legislation and training procedures."

The Sustainable Building Guide sets out the different solutions that can help to make a home more sustainable and emphasises the economic benefits for both builder and homeowner, whether this is from a faster installation time or reduced energy bills, he said.

There are sections on government funding such as the Renewable Heat Incentive as well as all types of construction material. The guide is available in Jewson branches or as a download from its website.
