Actis renews its partnership with LABC for a third year

Sustainability Thu, Dec 5, 2019 11:30 AM

Insulation specialist Actis has renewed its partnership with LABC for a third time after two successful years as a sponsor.

And the two organisations are looking forward to helping other industry members gain greater insight into thermal efficiency thanks, in part, to their incredibly successful roving monthly technical seminars.

The CPD sessions Actis presents at all the LABC roadshows around the country have been extremely popular - so much so that 2020 will see the launch of a new, follow up module.

And revisions to Part L expected in 2020 are also likely to form a major plank of the LABC and Actis roadshow messages in the coming year.

Actis will continue to take part in LABC's much-lauded regional awards ceremonies and will play a key role in its annual conference in March.

LABC has seen growing take up of its regional roadshows over the past two years, with many events now oversubscribed, necessitating earlier booking from the builders, building control surveyors, architects and specifiers for whom they are designed.

LABC head of business development Anna Thompson said: "We are delighted that Actis will continue to be one of our main sponsors for the coming year.

"Over the past two years we have developed an excellent mutually beneficial relationship which has helped to raise understanding of the work of both organisations throughout the construction industry, particularly our mutual goal of closing the thermal performance gap.

"We are looking forward to 2020 and the challenges of the new Part L and already have a dozen of our popular free breakfast technical updates in the pipeline."

Actis UK and Ireland sales director Mark Cooper added: "We're thrilled about our continued partnership with the LABC which provides us with an excellent opportunity to share our technical expertise with colleagues across the construction industry."

The CE marked Actis Hybrid range has LABC and LABSS registered details, LABC Warranty and Premier Guarantee approval and are accepted by the NHBC when used in accordance with the certification.

The range's four insulation, vapour control and breather membrane products have been praised by architects, builders, specifiers and installers for their cleanliness, ease and speed of installation, lack of waste, lightness and ease of transportation as well as their impressive thermal performance.

Their flexibility and therefore ability to bend around corners and squash into gaps means HControl Hybrid and the two Boost'R Hybrids in particular are excellent at eliminating thermal bridging and ensuring air tightness.

Actis' current CPD module on tackling the performance gap comes in two variants, one for England and Wales and one for Scotland which has more stringent thermal efficiency requirements.

Both have proven very popular with building control teams across the British Isles, as have its online U-value simulator and a series of how-to videos.
