Sustainability showroom to open at Gibbs & Dandy Bedford

Published:  10 March, 2015

The Bedford branch of Gibbs & Dandy will open a specially created Sustainable Buildings Showroom, packed with environmentally-friendly products and technologies.

The showroom, which will be officially opened by Richard Fuller, MP for Bedford and Kempston, on Friday 13 March, will have a specific focus on four types of energy saving solutions - energy efficiencies, heating and controls, fabric solutions and renewables. These include a variety of products and technologies from biomass boilers, air source heat pumps, solar thermal systems, to external wall insulation and LED lighting.

The 58sq m showroom has been created in partnership with Greenworks, the UK’s recognised authority and market expert, providing training in the applications of sustainable building solutions and products.

Stuart Harm, manager of the Bedford branch, said: “The Sustainable Buildings Showroom was created because we recognised that there is a demand from trade professionals, property developers and self-builders, who all want to better understand the variety of technologies available, as well as learn about how these products can be a benefit to either their own properties, or their customers.”

Marcus Jefford from Greenworks added: “This project is a fantastic way to bring the latest sustainable building and energy-efficiency products and training directly to Gibbs & Dandy customers. The location means that more tradespeople across the country can gain easier access to the latest training.

“We are looking forward to the opening of the Sustainable Buildings Showroom and providing on-going support for Gibbs & Dandy customers. We believe that it will provide an essential connection to product, market drivers and legislations for the trade professionals.”
