Mapei to exhibit at Ecobuild 2017 Stand C169, 7th – 9th March at ExCeL
Mapei, a company renowned for their long standing environmental commitment in the manufacture of construction products, will be exhibiting at Ecobuild for the 7th consecutive year in 2017. Visit Mapei at stand C169 for product demonstrations and expert advice on innovative sustainable products and how to specify for a varied range of new build and refurbishment projects.
Now in their 80th year, Mapei will be promoting all UK-active sustainable products at Ecobuild showcasing their credentials to architects and specifiers in all construction sectors. System build up displays across all of Mapei product lines will provide visitors with a real understanding of the solutions Mapei offer. Technical assistants will demonstrate Mapei’s BBA accredited Mapetherm EWI, render and coating systems in designated demonstration areas, presenting on how to ensure a high quality finish with sustainable thermal insulation. Regular practical demonstrations for the installation of large format thin porcelain tiles will also feature.
Phil Breakspear, Managing Director at Mapei UK said “We are again committed to showcasing Mapei UK’s certified sustainable products at Ecobuild this year; Mapei invests 5% of annual turnover in Research and Development activities with a total of 70% of this channelled into the development of more environmentally friendly products. We are always striving for ways in which to limit our environmental impact, constantly evaluating how our products can be improved.”
The regeneration theme at Ecobuild will showcase sustainability as a catalyst for renewal across building industries and wider society. Consequently the raised floor, walls, doors, counters and light fittings in Mapei’s house on Regeneration Drive are all items that have been reused. Featured solar panels will symbolise the large installation currently in situ at the Mapei UK head office in Halesowen – one of the top 20 solar panel installations in the UK, currently reducing Mapei UK’s CO2 emissions by approximately 189 tonnes per year. For the second year running, trees that are integral to the stand’s “garden” will be donated to local Birmingham schools after the event, to be reused and enjoyed in green spaces by future generations.
As a leading company on the global construction market and a member of Green Building Council’s worldwide, including the UK, Mapei has always been strongly focussed on the development of safe and environmentally friendly, functional products for the construction industry. ‘Sustainable’ construction and consequently the saving of natural resources, water, energy and non-renewable materials along with a reduction in emissions and waste materials is of paramount importance to Mapei and are incorporated into the business’s sustainable practices. This adds to Mapei’s long-term, enduring commitment towards eco-sustainability, through manufacturing, certification and process compliance including ISO 14001, Mapei look forward to exhibiting at Ecobuild 2017.
