Council for Aluminium in Building
CAB's 36m square stand at Ecobuild 2012

25 February – CAB Heads for Ecobuild 2014

For the sixth year in succession CAB is supporting Ecobuild to highlight its central role in promoting Aluminium as the sustainable 21st Century material.

Taking place at ExCeL, London, on Tuesday 4th to Thursday 6th March 2014, Ecobuild is the world’s biggest event for sustainability design, construction and built environment. CAB’s Aluminium Pavilion stand N537 will include a drop-in lounge, which has proved massively popular in the past, manned by CAB staff who will be on hand to answer any questions relating to aluminium and aluminium products used in the construction supply chain. Most importantly visitors to the 120 square metre stand  can expect to receive advice on where to find important sources of data to support the use of aluminium and up to date information on standards and regulations in addition to CAB’s ongoing sustainability projects.

Aluminium’s presence at the show, which is likely to attract around 40,000 visitors, has soared in recent years with CAB members supporting the Pavilion. Justin Ratcliffe, CAB’s Chief Executive commented, ‘CAB’s prominent role in both lobbying and promoting aluminium’s sustainable credentials makes Ecobuild a must, but we are also delighted at how the show delivers high quality visitors with serious enquiries. Last year, for instance, there were over 8,500 architects who visited the show and we got to speak to a number of key practices.’

Visitors are welcome to join us on the stand for an informal drinks reception at 4.30 pm on WEDNESDAY 5th MARCH

The Council for Aluminium in Building’s aim is to support the interests of the architectural aluminium industry by encouraging the increasing use of aluminium products in architecture and in the construction industry as a whole.

CAB can be found in the North Hall on Stand N537. For further information about the Council for Aluminium in Building, its team and membership contact Julie Harley on 01453 828851.
