COVENTRY: Saint-Gobain's redeveloped Innovation Centre in London Docklands opened its doors to customers this month when the company hosted a series of presentations to provide architects, specifiers and contractors with the chance to view products and solutions.

Technical experts from a number of Saint-Gobain's UK businesses, including British Gypsum, Weber, Saint-Gobain Glass and Saint-Gobain PAM, were on hand to answer product queries.

The sessions also featured live demonstrations and mobile showrooms including the Weber Live demo of external wall insulation application, British Gypsum's trailer, which combines drywall systems with practical demonstrations, and the Solatruck from Saint-Gobain Glass.

Shalini Patel, manager of the Innovation Centre, said: "The open days highlighted the range of products available and showed our customers how these can work together to provide sustainable solutions."
