Adaptavate at UK Construction Week 2018
Adaptavate showcased Breathaplasta and Breathaboard as part of the MaterialDistrict Expo at UK Construction Week 9-11 October in the NEC Birmingham. UK Construction Week is the largest built environment event in the country attracting an audience of thousands. This year’s theme was “Future of Construction” and MaterialDistrict Expo created an exhibition with 100 of the latest and best innovations internationally for The Surface Materials Show.
The MaterialDistrict Expo, titled “Materials that Matter” highlighted the important role of future materials in our built environment for sustainability, circularity, energy saving, ‘smart’ solutions and health & wellbeing. A tactile exhibition, “Materials that Matter” invited people to touch, feel and interact with the building materials of the future.
On show were lightweight composites, recycled plastic, engineered wood, natural materials like cork textile and bamboo façades and new materials engineered from waste coffee grounds or waste denim. The expo also featured new acoustic solutions, smart interactive sunscreen materials and of course our very own healthy bio-based construction products, Breathaplasta and Breathaboard.
“It’s exciting for our bio based materials to be showcased at such an important event as UK Construction Week” said Owen, Product Manager at Adaptavate. “The show had a record turnout of 34,000 people over just 3 days and “Materials that Matter” proved really popular as as it offered everyone the opportunity to explore and get hands on with a wide range of quirky materials. Judging by the innovations on show, the future of construction is looking very bright!”
