EOS – The Focal Point of Offsite Expo
Following a packed two days at Offsite Expo, the team at EOS has returned from the inaugural exhibition with a wealth of new prospects and partnership opportunities. As winners of numerous Offsite Awards, the experts from EOS used their steel framing systems and skills to create one of the impressive feature builds – a focal point of the exhibition.
Representatives from EOS were on hand at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry to explain the benefits of light steel frame and its applications across multiple sectors to thousands of delegates. Future-proof and future-ready, light gauge steel is perfectly positioned to meet construction industry demands. As an advanced offsite solution, steel is not susceptible to shrinkage, warping, cracking, rot infestation or moisture absorption. Its high-performance and fire-resistant benefits offer significant design capability improvements over traditional construction methods.
EOS, as part of the Etex Building Performance group of companies, can call upon the expertise of three leading lightweight construction brands – Siniat, Promat and EOS. The combination of expertise in drylining, external sheathing and steel framing systems, as well as passive fire protection, means that the group is uniquely positioned to bring these elements together to create a range of tested and warranted external Thrubuild® load bearing systems.
Gold Sponsors – The EOS Masterclass Theatre
EOS developed a feature build Masterclass Seminar Theatre using a combination of steel framing systems and their latest Thrubuild® load bearing technology, where highly regarded speakers took to the stage to inspire audiences on a range of offsite methodologies, technologies, systems and award-winning case studies.
Amongst these speakers, EOS’ business development manager Peter Burchill presented an in-depth case study on The Ram Quarter – a multi-award-winning project delivered through fast-track construction methods using a range of bespoke solutions from the EOS product portfolio.
EOS continually invests in product research and development and have created a robust range of tested and warrantied systems for building envelopes. Through advanced design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) protocols, EOS achieve fast-track construction programmes without compromising quality. As a major project delivery strategy, these factory-based methods reduce construction time, delivering an earlier return on investment.
Following the event, Steve Thompson, Managing Director for EOS said: “We’ve been showcasing our new Thrubuild® load bearing systems and have been inundated with interest. We also had the opportunity of being involved with the CPD Accredited Masterclass Seminars – a great way of sharing knowledge and promoting the benefits of precision manufactured steel framing systems. We have been able to engage with architects, engineers and specifiers, as well as have conversations with our competitors. We all thrive from these opportunities, from the doors opening on Tuesday right through to the close on Wednesday, we were busy on our stand. As gold sponsor, we were invested in the event and we’ll now be reaping the benefits.”
