Interbuild 2008

Interbuild, 26 - 30 October 2008 NEC Birmingham

A NEWLY CREATED SALVAGE SECTION at Interbuild '08 will showcase the reclamation of traditional building materials, such as stone, brick, slate and tile, and associated services.

"Interbuild is a celebration of innovation in building and construction," says Event Director, James Gower. "As part of that ethos, the show is recognising the innovative use of reclaimed materials. Sympathetically salvaged building materials are not only popular but there are obvious environmental benefits of using salvaged items that would ordinarily go to landfill. Promoting practical, sustainable solutions is an important strand of the show and the new salvage area supports this thinking."

Many sectors of the trade work with salvaged items on a daily basis and the new area will enable them to source items representing everything from architectural salvage through to reclaimed building materials and demolition. Bricks; ridge tiles; York Stone paving; oak flooring; old beams; edging stones; chimney pots; garden statues; street lamps and flagstones are all popular salvage items in continuous demand in the trade.
