As the energy crisis continues, affordable, sustainable energy has become the current hot topic for Surrey homeowners to research, according to new data provided by the Southern Homebuilding & Renovating Show. Returning to Sandown Park between 25-26 June 2022, the event will feature over 180 exhibitors showcasing thousands of products and services, including modern energy and eco information from sustainability experts.
Such is the interest in energy efficiency and sustainability, many of the 20 free daily seminars and masterclasses will cover relevant topics including: structural insulated panels; energy efficiency; underfloor heating – choosing the right system to maximise performance; how to heat your home; eco windows, and much more.
On hand at this year’s show will be ‘DIY SOS’ and ‘60 Minute Makeover’ interior designer Julia Kendell. With over 30 years’ experience as an interior design professional, property renovator and kitchen specialist, Julia will be imparting her knowledge on interior transformations that uplift and energise to have a positive impact on wellbeing. She will be highlighting her new ‘Virtual Room Design Service’ that provides online interior expertise to those needing help with creating well-functioning one-off rooms.
A key area at the show will be The Advice Centre, sponsored by Internorm, where homeowners can discuss their project ideas with industry leaders. By booking their exclusive 15-minute Ask the Expert consultations, visitors have access to interactive sessions with property expert Michael Holmes; eco expert David Hilton; design expert Allan Corfield, building expert Bob Branscombe, finance expert Tom McSherry, and planning expert Sally Tagg.
Sally will also be present at The Planning Clinic, where people can find out the tactics to a successful, straightforward planning process. People who have successfully finished a project will also be present to share their experiences with those at the beginning of their journey.
Visitors keen to find out more about the design, planning and construction process are recommended to book an Ask the Architect consultation, where chartered specialists can assist with consumers’ specific issues.
Members of the Federation of Master Builders will guide people booking an Ask the Builder session on hiring accredited, highly skilled construction workers.
