TP makes sustainability simple

Published:  21 March, 2012

LONDON: SBS (Sustainable Building Solutions), a division of the Travis Perkins Group, has unveiled its new website at Ecobuild today. The website provides tradesmen, architects and specifiers with everything they need to complete a sustainable building project.

From products through to tips and advice on how to go about managing a project from start to finish, the new website offers a one-stop-shop for all of the trade’s sustainable needs.

Also being launched at the show and featuring on the website is Travis Perkins Group’s new standard construction drawings. Developed in conjunction with the LABC and BRE, these drawings will help architects, contractors and house-builders deal with the minefield of building regulations and enable them to meet the strict criteria required of sustainable projects.

Paul Joyner, director of Sustainable Building Solutions at Travis Perkins Group commented: “We’ve really gone all out for this year’s show to offer a fully integrated solutions approach to sustainable building. We appreciate that for the trade, time is money, and this new approach will allow us to provide them with the right sustainable products, services, training and advice to support them in getting the job done in the best, and most efficient way possible.”
