Build It Live brings together leading suppliers who will showcase all the latest innovations that can make your home or renovation the best it can be.
Introduced last year, the hugely popular Sustainable Building Products Pavilion will return to the Bicester show again in 2023.
Whether building from scratch or renovating an old house, if you want a truly sustainable, healthy home, then every aspect of your project needs to be considered in detail – from low-energy design strategies through to the products and finishes that go into both the structural fabric and the internal fit-out. A visit to the Sustainable Building Products Pavilion, in association with the Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP), is ideal for receiving advice and sourcing some of the UK’s best eco products on the market.
Listen to free seminars in the Build
It Live theatre and book free one-to-one advice sessions with industry experts who can help answer questions relating to your own property project. Developed by Build It Magazine’s editorial team, industry experts will give informative demonstrations and answer common questions such as how to find land and secure planning permission, the different routes to managing your project and how to renovate a home with character or update an old house for modern eco living.
Hear from Build It magazine readers who have already realised their self-build dreams; listen to their stories, ask questions and gain tips on how to avoid common pitfalls.
With heating being a current hot topic, the Heating Advice Clinic has plenty of guidance on the best heating systems available for your home right now, together with all the latest information on Government grants available for installing air- and ground-source heat pumps.
Financial experts will be on hand to advise on how to finance your project. They will also have the latest information on Government schemes available, such as the Help to Buy loan scheme.
