Famous face to open installer zone at Ecobuild

Architect and TV presenter George Clarke will open the Practical Installer arena at Ecobuild 2013.

Practical Installer is a ‘working’ showcase demonstrating the installation and operation of renewable and energy efficiency products in a retro-fit environment – complete with an illustration of energy saving and financial support provided via Green Deal, Feed-in Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Heating installers have always been the focus of Practical Installer demonstrations, with 90 per cent of Ecobuild visitors last year rating these ‘very useful’. 

The industry’s leading manufacturers - including Vaillant, Honeywell, Grundfos, Kingspan, Worcester Bosch, Baxi, Fernox, Grant, Uponor, Heatrae Sadia, Glow-worm, Dimplex and JA Solar – will come together to show how, in a retro-fit environment, these technologies integrate with products already familiar to installers.

Mr Clarke said: “It’s a crucial time for the UK construction industry, as the government focuses on improving the energy efficiency of the country’s 26 million existing homes.

“I’m really excited to be opening Practical Installer at Ecobuild, which will demonstrate the practicalities and potential cost savings of fitting homes with a range of energy efficiency technologies.”
