Batimat-Innovation For Building and Architecture
DJADS decided to cross the Channel to see what our European neighbours are producing with regards to innovative products predominately with regards to sustainable issues.
DJADS also are looking to do further work in France and hopefully other areas in Europe. The Batimat-Expo is located in the huge Paris Nord expo Center larger than any of the ones we see in this country.
It was very interesting to see the European emphasis on various products especially such things as the use of timber within construction and the various integrated insulation options to assist in achieving a low carbon design.
We had also been invited by the UK Trade and Investment Stand to get involved with their networking event. We are somewhat small in comparison to some of the companies that were involved but we made good contacts and found it inspiring to talk to people in the business in Europe and the different approaches to the process of work.
