Virtual Build Better

Looking to upskill or simply add to your CPD credits!


If you missed the opportunity to attend Build Better with Gyproc, Isover & Weber over the last two years, don’t worry we are now coming to you ONLINE.  Join us from the comfort of your own home or office for our first virtual BUILD BETTER where you will hear from guest speakers from the industry.

Following the huge success of the regional Build Better roadshows over the last two years, Saint-Gobain Technical Academy is happy to announce that we are now bringing the same great experience through our new digital training space, this includes a list of experienced guest speakers and industry-relevant topics. 

From wherever you are working during these new and different times, our first virtual Build Better event will be a one-stop-online-shop for architects, engineers, designers and contractors, to e-learn best practices and understand from industry recognised experts, their building fabric solutions and routes to compliance. 

For our first event, we are running with the theme of BCAR Compliance and Fire Safety. The event offers a program of industry-specific presentations throughout the morning that will focus on Building Better in, predominantly, the non-domestic construction sector with speakers specifically addressing fire safety detailing and compliance of internal fit-outs, and overall compliance and methods of approach with the BCAR system. Speakers include representatives from Eamon O’Boyle Associates, i3PT, Castle Group and Saint-Gobain in Ireland.

 The event will also include some short demonstrations and information on new and existing products that will help you design, specify and ultimately BUILD BETTER
