Sustainable Building & Retrofit Show 2012

A showcase of new products and services in Irish Sustainable Building, Renewable Energy and Water Conservation sectors

Retrofit, Renovate, Refurbish: all key buzzwords inhabiting the new economic reality facing our construction industry here in Ireland. Following on from the success of the Better Building Conference last April, The Sustainable Building & Retrofit Show 9th– 10th November 2012, will take place at Industries Hall, RDS, Dublin showcasing products and services in the building, renovation and retrofit sector. Over 3,500 buyers spanning the industry are expected to visit.

The 2012 Show highlights the direction the industry is now taking, with sustainable and quality retrofitting proving to be the way forward…

“Ernst & Young recently issued a Cleantech Ireland report, which estimates the clean-tech sector alone has huge potential for the country. By 2020, Ernst & Young said the clean-tech sector in Ireland could create nearly 80,000 direct and indirect jobs through specific national schemes, such as retrofitting, renewable energy and construction and boost GDP by €3.9bn.” Source: Silicon Republic 05.07.2012
