Environmentally Sound for Barbados: Canadian Construction & Building Products Showcase 2011

There seems to be a building boom in Barbados once again, but perhaps those in Construction need to look at the “Green” method or being Environmentally sound. Then the Canadian Construction & Building Showcase is the answer for many local businesses looking to feature Housing as their money-making fulcrum.

Some of the Canadian participants exhibiting their products and technologies apart from hosting One-on-One Business Meetings.

The venture is a cooperative idea between the Canadian Mortgage & Housing Corporation, the Canadian High Commission teaming with the Canadian Export Development Incorporated.

The advanced technology is designed to be environmentally sound without hurting one’s budget.

In addition to the expo, there still a number of seminars where valuable info can be shared between Ottawa and Bridgetown, you find out more by clicking HERE.

The trade show has 30 Canadian manufacturers in the Construction, Building Products/Services fields.

There are many examples where the two countries can exchange valuable ideas, like Abba Skylights who not only have Solar Water heating where the tanker is stored underground but they also make skylights for one’s roof which are hurricane-resistant.

Another company as part of the booths on display is local entity H Jason Jones and their partnership with Sasco Products who have a wood treatment system which uses no chemicals to handle problems associated with the material in question {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

Even if termites already started invading, this is a non-threatening way to handle the situation without harming the environment.

The line of products are capable of working inside or outdoors and not only deal with insect-infestation but decay among other challenges when using wood for Housing Material.

If this piques your curiosity then head over to 2 Mile Hill as the 17th is the last day for the Showcase!
