This week Alan and Guy visited the British Gypsum Academy in Cumbria to gain accreditation in dry wall construction.
Both Alan and Guy are time served joiners and chose to go on this course to extend their
understanding of new products and fixing processes . The course carries with it accreditation to allow them to install “Green Deal” insulated partition and external wall systems which is part of the Governments initiative to reduce our carbon foot print in the UK. The Green Deal is to be launched in October 2012 and it designed to allow home owners to up grade the thermal efficiency of their homes and therefore reduce their carbon footprint and energy consumption.
As well as passive technologies such as insulated walls, Macoun is also focusing on active micro energy generation such as Photovoltaic cells (PV), Solar Thermal, Heat Pumps as well as environmental technologies such as rain water harvesting.
This week MD Richard Weir attended a training course with Viessmann in Telford to understand how to specify and fit Solar Thermal technology.
Richard is already an approved installer of Viessmann 200 series gas boilers and is now ready to help current and future clients in specifying the best technology and payback for their homes.
