Indepdent South West builder’s merchant, Bradfords Building Supplies is offering local builders free training as part of a new green and low carbon initiative.
Partners in the scheme include Bradfords, Local Authority Building Control (LABC), Constructing Excellence South West, BRE, and the HSE.
Initially available across the south west, where Bradfords has 22 branches, the scheme will be rolled out nationally.
The one day training seminars will provide updates for small builders on important legislation updates, plus the opportunity to meet experts and to share information and concerns.
Bradfords Building Supplies’ sales and marketing director Mike Tidmarsh says: “This is an essential annual update on building regulations changes which will open up a wealth of business opportunities for smaller building companies in Cornwall who are very much hands on working on site without the full back up in the office.
“We are very excited to be part of this scheme as part of an ongoing commitment to add value to the high quality service we offer our loyal client base. This is an unmissable opportunity for local builders to get some free training from industry experts to keep them up to date with the ever changing regulations.”
The main topics to be covered are conservation of energy, ventilation, heating, electrics and the new water safety and usage regulations. ‘I’ve been updated’ van stickers will be allocated to each attendee at the end of the one day workshop. This means that builders can demonstrate they have been fully briefed on the latest industry changes and have the essential knowledge required to offer ongoing advantages and service to their clients.
