The Sustainable Building & Retrofit Show – Ireland

A showcase of new products and services in Irish Sustainable Building, Renewable Energy and Water Conservation sectors
Dublin, Ireland, COUNTRY – 12th July 2012.  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.
Supported by Cultivate, the Construction Industry Federation of Ireland and the Chartered Institute of Building in Ireland, 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.
