Exploring both the environmental and economic benefits of building a green home, the show offers a packed three days of live demonstrations, free seminars and case studies along with an unrivalled line-up of experts on hand to share their advice. The show builds on the topics covered on the NSBRC Eco Workshops that are run throughout the year, and this year there is a strong emphasis on creating a healthier living environment for you and your family.
The Big Green Home Show reviews the best construction methods to use through exciting live demonstrations and, as with all NSBRC events, there is an exceptional line-up of seminars covering everything you need to get started. From planning news to budgeting, plot finding and Building Regulations, the free talks and workshops on offer are a great way to pick up a wealth of valuable information, for both newcomers and skilled professionals.
David Hilton, NSBRC Eco Expert, said: “The Big Green Home Show is about gaining inspiration and knowledge. You come here before you go to the salespeople.” Over 220 exhibitors will be showcasing their latest products and technologies. Guided tours of the NSBRC’s fantastic educational zones, featuring a life-size ‘Renovation House’ and brilliant ‘New Build Journey’ are the perfect way to help visualise how to use these products as part of your finished project.
Sue Dewhirst, of Evolved Design, said: “Whatever project you are considering, be it a new-build, renovation or an extension, the Big Green Home Show is the place to start. The exhibitors and consultants offer free guidance and advice. It’s a learning centre with seminars and experts available to cover all areas of designing and building a home.”
The NSBRC’s own team of impartial experts along with eco-consultants, architects, project managers and planners will be ready to meet for one-on-one sessions throughout the show. Offering free advice, they will happily talk through your ideas with you, no matter how big or small, and offer their expert opinions and guidance on even the trickiest of questions.
