					    The Building Centre Spring Newsletter

Let’s hope that the glorious weather will hold for the next few days.
Looking outside, I see that the trees are green again, so spring must
be here. What a long, cold winter it has been.
The Building Centre has been far from quiet. We have a bouquet of new
exhibitors and our reception has a very different appearance since
Gyproc redesigned and built it, giving us two reception stations with an
innovative ceiling and their new damp resistant bathroom Rhino drywall
which will be finished off with sanitary ware supported by metal frames
set in the dry wall.
Lansdowne Boards provided us with state of the art office drawers on
wheels and Max on Top fitted our desks with Corian counter tops,
Albert Carpets set off the new look with a plush red carpet and Ceiling
and Partition Warehouse installed bamboo flooring.
Life at the Building Centre is never dull. There is always change
and to help us stay on the ball, we have a fabulous coffee
machine donated by Udo Klots of Sprada, please come and
sample it.
New displays are:

The Green Initiative:

                          There is a growing demand for examples of sustainable building
                          methods and products. The Building Centre has dedicated a
                          section to eco building, a separate business, but in partnership
                          with us called Eco Exhibit.
                          Please watch this space. The initiative is receiving very positive
                          response and we are excited about working in this field with
                          Rayne Neave who is running the business.

                          Eco Exhibit and the Building Centre hosted a presentation given to
                          architects by The Green Building Council in July.

So we look forward to growing into the new as summer returns. Please
listen out for our latest radio advertisement which is flighting on Cape
Talk this week and every week before our first Sunday of the month open day.
We welcome feedback from you and always look forward to seeing
architects and exhibitors in the Building Centre.

                   Enjoy Spring!

   Warm Wishes from Cheryl and the B C Team
