The Eco Showcase is a sustainable-building roadshow – and it’s making a stop in Birmingham!
The show is intended for buyers and business owners and will take place on 20th September at the Villa Park Stadium.
If you are looking for green construction-inspiration and tools-of-the-trade, this is the show for you!
From plumbers to electricians, joiners to builders – all tradespeople will be impacted by the upcoming Green Deal.
If you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about how to expand your skills to fit the changing building/renovation environment.
The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) is offering courses that provide an introduction to sustainability and green building.
The first step, as they say, is awareness. Learn the basics about asbestos here.
From offices and warehouses to apartments and houses, any building in the UK completed before the year 2000 could potentially contain asbestos.
What is the Green Deal?
According to the DECC, the Green Deal is “a framework to enable private firms to offer consumers energy efficiency improvements to their homes, community spaces and businesses at no upfront cost, and to recoup payments through a charge in instalments on the energy bill.”
In other words, it is essentially a loan. The cost of the improvements is to be recovered through instalments on the energy bill (likely over several years). This is different from a personal loan in that you are not obligated to continue paying if you move house.
