Loved reading this at lunch.

As is generally the case, it was great to see innovations within our industry the other week at UK Construction week.  Manufacturers within building products are constantly finding ways to stand out, be this by developments in design, carbon reduction, longevity, application or cost of manufacturing.  

During the show I saw a demonstration on a residential roof tile that doubles up as a solar panel.  This coating, on commercial buildings, claims to reduce energy bills by as much as 50% in a five storey building.
