Don Leiper, Director of New Business at E.ON:
“This building, and the work that went on to restore it, represents what needs to be done across the country to improve our homes and business premises – supporting at least 65,000 insulation and construction jobs by 2015.
“To do that we’ll need people with the right skills and the right knowledge and I’m delighted that through our sponsorship of CoRE and our partnership with the city of Stoke-on-Trent, E.ON can play a significant role in that.”
Luke Smith, National Energy Foundation:
"If you think you've heard it all before, try a CoRE Retrofit Masterclass and I can guarantee you will gain new and valuable insight"
Brian Berry, The Federation of Master Builders
“CoRE is an important initiative in the development of vital skills in green building retrofit. I am looking forward to contributing towards CoRE’s growth and also in representing the needs of FMB members on the sustainability agenda.”
CoRE and the FMB have also agreed to collaborate on a number of skills development initiatives in the sector.
Andy Walker, SURE Internal Wall Insulation:
"CoRE is providing a unique service to the construction industry. The size of the challenge to retrofit the entire UK housing stock is immense. CoRE is part of the solution"
Edward Heath, EWH Construction Ltd:
"CoRE masterclasses are one of the best ways to learn and network with fellows in the same field."
Fran Bradshaw, Anne Thorne Architects LLP:
"The Retrofit Masterclass gave me the opportunity to hear real experts in the field describe the latest solutions to the retrofit problems that face us all"
Margaret Healey-Pollett, EnergyWise Co-operative Ltd:
"A really good introduction to the issues, in a beautifully retrofitted building"
