This is the eleventh issue of The Build-Up! While that means we haven’t quite done a full year, the end of the year and the festive period seems like a good time to reflect on the newsletter’s (almost) first birthday, and to thank you for joining us on this journey.

Whether you’ve been reading since issue one or you’ve started today, we appreciate your time and attention. All that remains is for us to wish you a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year period. We’ll be back with issue twelve at the end of January 2022.


Focus on construction products

A big topic this year has been how manufacturers communicate about their construction products, and how information on performance and certification is presented. A few months ago we wrote a blog post on using manufacturers’ data to inform specification, and looked at a couple of different initiatives that will influence the way that manufacturers make data and information available to you as designers and specifiers.
One of those initiatives is the Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI). We first wrote about this back in May, and we’ve produced an update blog post to reflect on the subsequent publication of the Code and accompanying guidance.

Getting more from Polyfoam XPS

We usually use this part of the newsletter to feature some aspect of Polyfoam XPS’s technical services. But it’s the end of the year and, let’s face it, we’re all winding down for a well-earned rest! So instead of product ranges and CPD sessions, we would like to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Design resources

We’re all painfully aware of how commercialised the Christmas season has become, with unrelenting pressure to buy, buy, buy. If you want to do some shopping of a different sort, and browse a range of sustainable construction products that could be used on your next project, why not book an appointment at the EDGE eco product showroom in London?
