Jewson Sponsors Seminar Stream at Ecobuild 2013


How can a self-builder ensure that their sustainable new build or eco-renovation is as cost effective and energy efficient as possible?

Well, anyone looking for advice should check out this year’s Jewson sponsored seminar stream at Ecobuild – all about Sustainable Self-Build & Renovation.

By now, you’ll be well aware of how hard we work to help customers build and refurbish as sustainably as possible. That’s why at Ecobuild 2013, we’ll not only be exhibiting to give attendees the chance to discuss projects with us but we’ll also be sponsoring the Sustainable Self-Build & Renovation seminars.

It’s a really useful programme of topics and if you’re planning your own self build project – you’d be well advised to try and stop by. Here’s a quick look at what’s on to help you plan your visit:
