The benefits of continuing professional development within the construction industry have been well documented. As building regulations, technologies and the number of available products continually change, it’s imperative that those involved stay ahead of the curve.
Buildings today are built to a much higher standard than what was once required, and high quality throughout each step of the process must be achieved. Buildings today must be thought of as a system, with an emphasis on how different building components interact with one another.
KORE’s team of experts know building requirements and regulations inside and out, ensuring the customers we partner with build and use only the highest quality products, materials and methods. As low energy building methods like nZEB and Passive House become the norm, it’s important to partner with a supplier who understands the small details and can help you make informed decisions at each stage.
Partnering with KORE means you’ll be backed by decades of experience in both the construction and insulation industry, working with a team that has supplied the largest Passive House development in Ireland, and certified some of the worlds most energy efficient buildings. Whether you’re insulating a single house or an entire estate, every customer receives the same level of service.
