Discover innovative building materials and systems for creating quality, healthy, efficient buildings. This series showcases a range of solutions from IGBC members that can contribute to building a greener future. Covering areas including wood solutions, envelopes, interiors, renovation and circularity, this webinar series explores the carbon and energy saving potential of a range of solutions.
SOLUTIONS FROM TIMBER – Wednesday 1pm – 28/04/21
Wood is the quintessential low carbon building material. This webinar explores products and solutions available that use wood both structurally as a building component including wood fibre insulation, oriented strand board and cross laminated timber construction.
Presenters: David Murray Medite Smartply, Martin Twamley Steico, Lee Murphy G-Frame.
ENVELOPES – – Wednesday 1pm – 05/05/21
Ensuring a high performance, continually insulated building envelope is key to achieving an energy efficient building. This webinar looks at the benefits of the SIMS solution, single leaf construction with external insulation and insulated foundation systems.
Presenter: Jason Martin – Mannok and Andrew Butler KORE
INTERIORS – Wednesday 1pm – 12/05
Choosing efficient and healthy interior products contributes to the overall sustainability of a project. In this webinar looks at low flow bathroom fittings and low impact paints and flooring.
Presenters: Pat Gatley Graphenstone Paints, Mark Bauer Forbo and Andrew Murphy, Bathquip
CIRCULARITY – Wednesday 1pm – 19/05
For building products to be truly sustainable, they need to be circular. This webinar showcases two exciting Irish examples of circularity, insulation made from newspapers and an aggregate made from construction demolition waste.
Presenters: John Egan Ecocel and Cian O’Hora IMS
RENOVATION – Wednesday 1pm – 26/05
The most sustainable building is an existing building, so renovating our building stock to be more energy efficient is key to achieving carbon savings. This webinar looks at mineral wool as a low-cost solution for mass renovation and heat pumps for water heating.
Presenters: Jason Horrex St Gobain and Cian Tobin Ideal Energy
